A producer of the anti-vaccination film ‘Vaxxed’ has been banned from Australia after entering the country to secretly tour the movie around the nation.

Polly Tommey revealed she had been banned in two separate Facebook videos on the VAXXED page after finally arriving in New Zealand.

She claimed her phone had been confiscated by immigration officials, who had taken photographs of her emails, and she had been told she would not be welcome back for three years, reports Daily Mail.

‘Australia to me is literally the worst country I’ve visited,’ she said during an interview with some New Zealand parents.

‘I had my phone taken away as I left. They confiscated my phone and took photos of all my emails and texts.

‘They also told me I was banned from Australia for three years.’

‘I got pulled over, and I’m held in there for a long time,’ Ms Tommey explained to viewers.

‘They took my phone, they took photographs of everything in my phone.

‘I could have kicked up a fuss and called a lawyer and the British Embassy, but I didn’t want to miss my flight to New Zealand.

‘After lots of questions, and questions about how dangerous ‘Vaxxed’ is, and taking photos of any correspondence between me and the Australian Vaccination Network, they told me I was banned from Australia for three years.’

Ms Tommey said she was not given a reason for her ban, simply told her anti-vaccination film was dangerous.

‘They didn’t give me a reason, they couldn’t give me a reason. They just said if they’d known I was coming in beforehand, they wouldn’t have let me in,’ she said.

The Vaxxed team’s tour through Australia was conducted under a thick sheath of secrecy.

A Gold coast principal claimed he was tricked into hiring out his school’s hall for a screening of the controversial anti-vaccination documentary, reported Daily Mail. 

Campaigners booked the Gold Coast public school Miami State High on Tuesday night under the guise of a seminar about organic vegetables, it was claimed.

However, it actually screened Vaxxed, which claims to expose a ‘link’ between vaccinations and autism, although it claims it isn’t anti-vaccinations.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk was enraged by the ‘misrepresentation’ given to the school, as her government strongly supports vaccinations.

Do you think this was a good move for Australia?

  • Yes I think this was the right thing to do.


  • yeah but what about the other people that have morals or ideals that most people don’t agree with or even want to tolerate? do we get to ban them all as well? i am all for vaccinations by the way but this is just censoring people. You don’t have to agree or listen to them and besides, i think anti vaxers’ are a very small minority


  • If there was a charge to watch the movie at all she probably breached immigration laws. Somebody had to pay the money to hire the school building.
    I thought medical research had proved that in some cases Autism is genetic.


  • Good. Spread those lies in your own country. There are enough gullible people here reading nonsense on the internet to prevent someone entering our country and preaching more garbage which will affect more of OUR children.


  • I believe she was banned from Australia for trying to enter with a wrong passport endorsement or as a tourist when she was going to be paid for showing this ‘documentary’. That is against our laws, and if you watch border patrol, you would have known she was doing the wrong thing. As for being an ‘anti-vaxxer’ I hope she is never let in again. Too many little ones die before the can be immunised against certain diseases.


  • Good! We don’t want anti-vaxxers here – there’s no supporting scientific evidence in what they say. In fact diseases like small pox are eliminated due to vaccinations. Stay away from my special needs kids!


  • Good!


  • Good! In my opinion anti-vaxers are idiots and who knows what foreign diseases she could have been carrying and bringing into the country as I can only assume if she’s touring around she wouldn’t have gotten the recommended vaccinations herself beforehand. Besides theories about links with vaccinations and autism are absolute rubbish! Vaccinations are simply dosing you with a weakened version of the disease so that your body can produce it’s own antibodies against it and store them. People who’ve lived through the various illnesses that you can be vaccinated against aren’t getting autism now are they? That is, if they survive.


  • I didn’t even need to read the whole article. If our Government feel its best to ban you from our country, then so be it. You follow our rules and respect our governing body and people. Bye bye, we don’t need you here.


  • Good. We have enough of our own anti vaxxers here. We don’t need to bring in any more.


  • Absolutely right choice.


  • Absolutely the right decision to ban this crazy lady. For the life of me i do not understand where anti vaxxers get their “knowledge” from


  • Definitely not a good move, they let in worse people than this all the time, so why treat her as a criminal? It was by choice to see this film not forcing anyone to. The reason it was secretive was because of all the pro-vaccinators trying to stop them, harrassing threats to their lives included. It is not anti-vaccinating film, I doubt any commenters here have even seen the film. It is calling for transparency about vaccinations. Currently in online is running a documentary series called ‘ The truth about vaccines’ which is full of doctors and medical professionals speaking about vaccines. Again not anti-vaccine at all.


  • If she didn’t think she had done anything wrong, why was her tour done under a “shroud of secrecy”? She obviously knew she was doing something wrong by our rules!

    • Why cause the pro vaccination problem would have done a lynch mob that’s why…. the truth is coming out… just you wait till it exposed. Just you wait till you hear how much the big Pharmas are paying the government……


  • We are the richer for them not coming.
