Where to begin? That this scheme that has been set up is a scam. After reviewing their website and speaking to people on the phone, a huge run around to get the information I required. It is nothing but words on paper.
How does it not work? First, you have to be in hospital for at least 1 night. Your GP must be made aware of your reaction. You need to have a reaction that satisfies the TGA, and it must also be a very rare reaction that is only found in Australia under 1 of those 3 vaccines you have received. It doesn’t matter if it is found in other countries, as it hasn’t been found under the TGA guidelines.
Also, you might have underlying conditions that could have caused this reaction. Blood clots from the AstraZeneca, which is treatable, so no payout. The AstraZeneca, which was only given to those over 60, also rules out payment as a lot of these patients have underlying health conditions.
Myocarditis and Pericarditis from the Pfizer, again, which is treatable. No payout. It seems that if you get Guillain-Barré syndrome, it is considered a mild syndrome and you will recover. But you might get a payout. If the hospital and GP agree, but then it goes to an independent to overlook, who makes the final decision. Again, another cop out where you will probably be denied payment.
Onto the Moderna. Pretty much, nothing. All side effects are treatable with paracetamol.
The only way to get a payment is through death. But you must not have any underlying conditions.
They then send you to the TGA website which tells you that there are only minor adverse reactions. And the deaths from the vaccine are only at 9.
So, pretty much, it is nothing but words on paper that mean absolutely nothing even if a hospital and doctor agree, but the overlords making the rules deem it as a safe and effective vaccination.
Fill in the form that is provided, then sit and wait for no money to come through. Even if you have lost wages because of your hospital stay, the government does not care.
