Escorts are now warning clients to bring authenticated proof of vaccinations amid fears over vaccine hoaxes.
A Perth-based escort agency has received calls from clients from Sydney, Colorado and California requesting proof that there listed escorts have had vaccinations.
Two Thai girls, aged 18 and 19, in Sydney will be in quarantine for three months after testing positive for a new strain of Covid 19.
Their parents have also tested positive for Covid 19 as the cause of their sickness, but Marcia Blake insists their records say they did not contract the virus from college nor from travel abroad.
The law of this country says that a foreign student residing for more than six months in Australia must have their vaccination record in order to apply for study here.
To prove their entitlement, both students have been forced to spend more than a week in quarantine at Chedaburra for the Covid infection.
The girls have had all their classes cancelled and two of the three teachers who contracted the virus have also been grounded.
One has only just returned to school in a permanent disability to recover from her illness.
‘I don’t have the heart to tell them: ‘Sorry you’ve got sick, thanks for visiting the hotel, we can’t help you’,’ said the family’s only teacher, Mahina.
Mahina, who is taking a month off to recover, said of her own illness, that she contracted the virus on her first visit to the US in August last year while on a two week course at the prestigious California Institute of Technology, where she is studying computational biology.
She has been too ill to travel since but hopes to return to the US in April for a different course.
For a foreign student to obtain a place in Australia, they must have a letter from their parents saying they’ve paid £450 ($A666) for two separate vaccinations and showing proof of inoculation on the date of appointment with the register at their child’s primary school.
Miss Blake, who has been caring for two girls and a boy while their parents have been kept away in quarantine for three months, said she had been concerned about this case since its beginning.
‘I didn’t know what to think,’ she said.
‘I was trying to be reassuring, but my heart was beating a lot faster.’
Miss Walker said she had been told the virus was contracted in Thailand but there has been speculation that a super contagious may have spread there.
‘The people on the other side of the border wanted to know when and if they could be vaccinated, so I told them, “the rest of you get caught up and I’ll sort out the rest for you”.’
Consultant Dr Olga Stolk, of the Queensland Hospital & Health Service, said officials were working with Thai health authorities to send her medical records.
‘A high priority for our health system is the protection of the public and I am very concerned that vaccination records are still not available and we have heard that vaccination records have not been submitted and who knows where they are,’ she said.
