Fact Check: The Australian Military Is NOT Being Trained To Force-Vaccinate Every Resident In Door-To-Door Attacks Not Ordered

Is the Australian military being trained to force-vaccinate people with the COVID-19 vaccine in door-to-door attacks? No, that's not true. The claim is "misinformation and completely false," a spokesperson for the Australian Government Department of Defence told Lead Stories. No publicly available evidence corroborates the claim.

The claim appeared in an article published by the Hal Turner Radio Show on November 1, 2021, titled "AUSTRALIAN MILITARY BEING TRAINED TO **FORCE VACCINATE** IN DOOR-TO-DOOR ATTACKS" (archived here) which opened:

AUSTRALIAN MILITARY BEING TRAINED TO **FORCE VACCINATE** IN DOOR-TO-DOOR ATTACKS

The article includes a video in which an unidentified man claims members of the military have told him that they are being trained to force-vaccinate people with the COVID-19 vaccine:

We've got currently serving soldiers who are reaching out to us saying, "The generals in Australia, our leaders, are training us to go house to house on our training grounds in urban warfare and we're practicing pulling people out of their houses, with medical staff force injecting them. And then we're practicing running into the bush and capturing those people who are running away."

"This post is misinformation and completely false," the spokesperson for the Australia Department of Defence told Lead Stories via email on November 4, 2021.

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) previously assisted in administering the COVID-19 vaccine in elder and disability-care sectors as Reuters reported in March 2021 but they did not go door-to-door forcing people to take a COVID-19 vaccine.
