Senator Alex Antic has couriered a ream of printer paper and a cartridge of ink to the Chief Public Health Officer of South Australia, claiming he wanted to help SA Health as it apparently suffered from “a significant lack of printer paper and printer toner.”
He first wrote to Professor Nicola Spurrier, a lecturer in paediatrics at Flinders University, in December last year, seeking clarification about her statement during a press conference where she was reported to have said, “I personally would not want anyone unvaccinated coming to my Christimas party.”
Senator Antic asked the Health bureaucrat to provide the medical evidence upon which she based her statement,
In accordance with the importance of following “the science”, he asked for a prompt reply.
The lack of any response to that request or a subsequent request in January has led to the conclusion SA Health has run out of paper or ink.
In a video explaining his actions on Facebook, Senator Antic remarked:
“It’s almost a year, I know it’s very difficult, everyone’s busy. But ultimately these are some pretty important questions that we’re looking to be answered.
"Hopefully they’ve got a printer. I mean, that might be the next step. If we don’t get a response to this one with all of these great resources doing our bit for the public service here in the state, then we might have to look to getting a printer shipped over.”
In his original letter, Senator Antic quoted an article published in the prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, in November last year. The article called on bureaucrats to “stop the inappropriate stigmatisation of unvaccinated people”. It argued:
“High-level officials have used the term pandemic of the unvaccinated, suggesting that people who have been vaccinated are not relevant in the epidemiology of COVID-19.
“There is increasing evidence that vaccinated individuals continue to have a relevant role in transmission.
“It is therefore wrong and dangerous to speak of a pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
