One of the globe’s four major auditing firms has demanded that their Australian staff be vaccinated against Covid-19 if they ever want to return to the office or attend their Christmas party.

PwC will reopen its offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Parramatta and Newcastle in early November, but only to workers who have had the plug.

The auditing and advisory giant on Monday sent a note to its 8,000 Australian staff, reporting the Australian and informing them of the mandatory vaccination policy the same day NSW came out of 106 days in lockdown.

‘From the date of reopening, all partners, staff, contractors, customers and visitors wishing to access these offices must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19,’ said Australia’s Head of People and Culture Catherine Walsh.

‘Similarly, partners, staff and contractors located at these locations must also be fully vaccinated to make work-related trips, visit customer sites or attend work-related events’.

She said the decision to force her army of prayer counters to be double-dosed was based on the company’s commitment to the health, well-being and safety of our people, our families, our clients and our communities, as well as state health directives. ‘

Internal surveys suggest that 97 percent of juggernaut employees and partners were already planning to get the plug by December 31st.

The police release follows a large number of other large companies in Australia, including Qantas, Virgin, SPC, 13Cabs and BHP, which have also introduced similar vaccination mandates.

Competing big four company Deloitte is another that has introduced a mandatory jab program.

While EY and KPMG have been fighting for the federal government ‘Vax Return’ campaign, they have not yet introduced a mandate system themselves.

‘Vaccination is crucial if Australia is to emerge as quickly as possible from disruptive cycles of lockdowns and embark on the urgent task of reopening our country,’ said Deloitte Australia CEO Adam Powick in late September.

‘As a company and business, we strongly encourage and support our people to be vaccinated, and the response to this call has been overwhelmingly positive.

‘We have now joined together as a large 4 group of companies to convey our collective support for the national vaccination program, as this is a critically important foundation for our country’s economic and social health.’

WHY VACCINES ARE IMPORTANT

Immunization is a simple, safe and effective way to protect people from harmful diseases before coming into contact with them.

Immunization protects not only individuals but also others in society by reducing the spread of preventable diseases.

Research and testing are an important part of the development of safe and effective vaccines.

In Australia, vaccines must pass rigorous safety tests before the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) registers them for use. Approval of vaccines can take up to 10 years.

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

High-quality studies for many years have compared the health of a large number of vaccinated and non-vaccinated children. Medical information from nearly 1.5 million children around the world has confirmed that vaccination does not cause autism.

People first became concerned about autism and immunization after the medical journal The Lancet published a paper in 1998. This paper claimed that there was a link between measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism. Since then, researchers have completely discredited this paper. The Lancet withdrew it in 2010 and issued an apology. The UK General Medical Council slammed the author of the medical record for misconduct and dishonesty.
