Jacqui Lambie savages Queensland hairdresser who has banned clients vaccinated against coronavirus

Jacqui Lambie and Allison Langdon have slammed a Gold Coast hairdresser who is refusing any clients who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.  

Yazmina Jade Adler made headlines in 2019 after claiming she relieved her severe period pain by rubbing menstrual blood on her face during a ritual meditation.

Now, the Gold Coast business owner is back in the spotlight after imposing a controversial policy banning coronavirus vaccine recipients from her Palm Beach salon.

The Tasmanian Senator appeared on Today on Thursday morning criticising the extreme policy and dismissing her reasoning.

‘I’m not sure what viral disease she’s got right now but I’m really not sure how that ones going to go down,’ she told the program.  

‘That’s a brand-new one out there, I think.  

‘I’m not sure the hairdressing business will last very long with her saying that.’

Lambie, Allison Langdon and another host argued Ms Adler’s justification, that women could get sick from the vaccine particles, had no scientific basis.

‘It’s bonkers,’ one of the hosts said. 

Immunology experts say it is scientifically impossible for Covid-19 vaccines to cause illness in unvaccinated people as they contain no live virus or any other infectious material that can pass from person to person.   

‘It doesn’t really make sense, I guess a lot of people will question that, [but] it is like anything, like the disease or virus, it is spreading [jab particles] somehow and women are reporting side effects when they haven’t had the vaccine,’ Ms Adler told 9News. 

Ms Adler announced the new rule over Khemia HI vibe frequency salon’s social media pages on Monday, stating: ‘we are not your hairdresser if you have had the Covid vax’.

‘The unknown health effects of the mRNA vaccine are not covered by our public liability insurance,’ Ms Adler wrote on Facebook and Instagram. 

She apologised for any ‘inconvenience’ to customers but said ‘the safety of our staff and existing clients is our priority’, adding the policy would be re-evaluated in 2023 when clinical trials of the ‘experimental injection’ are completed.   

The business’ posts have since been flagged as ‘missing context’ and ‘defying science’ by independent fact checkers, the Australian Associated Press.

In a statement addressing the claims, AAP said a Facebook post circulating online claims that ‘countless reports and anecdotes affirm’ people who are unvaccinated against Covid-19 are becoming ill ‘just by being in the vicinity’ of those who have had the jab.

‘The lengthy post lists alleged examples of illnesses and injuries unvaccinated people have picked up from vaccinated people. 

‘These include irregular and heavy menstruation, bleeding while pregnant and miscarriages as well as supposed cases of pets dying when touched by someone who got the Covid jab.’

AAP said: ‘Much of the text has been copied from an article published on April 28 by a conspiracy-promoting ”alternative media” website that calls Covid-19 an ‘imaginary’ virus.’ 

Immunology experts say it is scientifically impossible for Covid-19 vaccines to cause illness in unvaccinated people as they contain no live virus or any other infectious material that can pass from person to person.

‘The current Covid-19 vaccines use mRNA or non-replicating virus, which are not contagious and cannot be transmitted to non-vaccinated people,’ UNSW infectious disease scientist associate professor Holly Seale told AAP FactCheck.

Associate professor Menno van Zelm from Monash University’s Department of Immunology and Pathology agreed, saying that there are ‘no credible reports’ that vaccinated people can make other people ill.

‘For one, Covid-19 vaccines do not contain the virus nor any other infectious agent that is contagious,’ Dr van Zelm said in an email.

‘Yes, the vaccine activates the immune system and can make the recipient feel unwell for 24 hours, but this does not affect bystanders.’ 

Ms Adler, who also offers ‘crystal healing’ and ‘frequency technology and sound healing for your full mind body hair experience’ in her salon, rose to fame two years ago after appearing on SBS’s show Medicine or Myth.

In front of a panel of medical experts, she pulled out a jar of her menstrual blood – which she collects – and daubed it across her forehead, claiming it cures her period cramps.

WHY VACCINES ARE IMPORTANT

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting people against harmful diseases before they come into contact with them.

Immunisation not only protects individuals, but also others in the community, by reducing the spread of preventable diseases.

Research and testing is an essential part of developing safe and effective vaccines.

In Australia, vaccines must pass strict safety testing before the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) will register them for use. Approval of vaccines can take up to 10 years.

Before vaccines become available to the public, large clinical trials test them on thousands of people.

High-quality studies over many years have compared the health of large numbers of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Medical information from nearly 1.5 million children around the world have confirmed that vaccination does not cause autism.

People first became concerned about autism and immunisation after the medical journal The Lancet published a paper in 1998. This paper claimed there was a link between the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism. Since then, scientists have completely discredited this paper. The Lancet withdrew it in 2010 and printed an apology. The UK’s General Medical Council struck the author off the medical register for misconduct and dishonesty.
