      Dear Craig,
      We could not find if he was vaccinated or not. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. It’s appreciated.

        Obviously, as is the usual case with those defending the harm caused by the jab, you didn’t look too far. This quote took me all of 5 minutes to find. This from an Australian newspaper; It’s unclear when exactly Mr. Wheatley received his injections. But both 7News and the Sydney Morning Herald reported that he was “fully-vaccinated.” An educated guess is that he received the injections in November and/or December last year because reports say he “contracted the virus” around Christmas. He was in the Epworth Hospital intensive care unit “fighting valiantly for several weeks.”
