Police will fine paramedic Sally-Ann John $1,000 after she attended the anti-lockdown protest in Sydney at the weekend

A veteran paramedic will be fined by police and faces calls to be sacked after screaming falsehoods about vaccines at the city’s illegal anti-lockdown protest at the weekend.  

Sally-Ann John, who proudly calls herself ‘Ambo Sal’, was one of about 3,500 people who marched down Broadway on Saturday afternoon, defying the public health orders.

In a livestream, the 52-year-old claimed police were ‘s***ing themselves’, wrongly claimed Covid jabs ‘aren’t even vaccines’ and slammed viewers who believe the science behind them as ‘sheep.’ 

During her broadcast Ms John was inundated with comments demanding she go home, to which she responded: ‘F*** you and your comments.’

‘All you people saying go home – you’ve got no idea, you’ve been brainwashed, youse are all brainwashed.

‘All you sheep who like to lap it up – ‘oooh I’m going to get my vaccine’. Yeaaaah riiiiiiiiight. It’s not even a vaccine. Should do your research’.’

Ms John’s principal place of work is the Covid hotspot of Liverpool, according to her entry on the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) register.  

Ms John’s actions alarmed her colleagues – with NSW Ambulance referring Ms John to NSW Police at the weekend, after several Twitter users called for her dismissal. 

‘The matter was promptly referred to NSW Police for investigation of a potential breach of the Public Health Orders,’ a NSW Ambulance spokesman said.

‘NSW Ambulance can confirm that the paramedic is not currently performing patient care duties.’
