Huge crowds are lining up in front of a regional medical clinic in hopes of getting a medical exemption for the Covid-19 vaccine – with police even clamoring to disperse the crowd.

Up to 300 people gathered outside a doctor’s office on Wednesday in the Colac suburb of Elliminyt, about 150km south-west of Melbourne, followed by another large crowd on Thursday.

Witnesses claimed that many in the crowd traveled to the small regional town amid rumors of a primary care physician granting waivers — something Dr. Denes Borsos rejected in a message published on his website.

The bizarre rush comes as about a million authorized workers in Victoria have an October 15 deadline to get a dose of the shot or a valid medical clearance.

The acting sergeant of the Victoria Police Department, Melissa Seach, said police received reports on Thursday of a large number of people “gathering outside the clinic for vaccination exemptions”.

Sergeant Seach told the Geelong Advertiser that traveling from the city to regional Victoria to get a vaccination waiver is not a valid reason to leave the house.

Rows of parked cars on either side of the road stretched hundreds of yards from the clinic’s driveway, while others lined up outside the clinic doors.

One patient recalled seeing “people and cars everywhere” and said they should ask the woman behind them what was going on.

The woman replied ‘We are here for the Covid’.

The patient said they assumed the lines were people waiting to get a shot and was shocked to realize some in the crowd had the opposite intent.

“I’m really, really p***ed off. “I did the right thing for 18 months and I was in a room with people who don’t care,” they said.

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting that Dr. Borsos has done something wrong and a note on his booking website told patients he would no longer be handing out waivers.

A booking website for Dr. Borsos issued a capital letter to patients on Wednesday: ‘SORRY!!! NO MORE JAB EXEMPTIONS, HELL YOURSELF THE BEST YOU CAN :(‘.

dr. Borsos graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1995, before moving to Colac Hospital in 2001, where he remained for 18 years.

He spent nine years at the Otway Clinic picking up the tricks of trade from his older colleagues.

“Many babies delivered, thousands of anesthetics administered, a few rescued and many more lost along the way,” the doctor wrote on the booking website.

“As of August 2018, after more than 20 years, the time has come for a more measured pace, and let younger Drs have some of the excitement…

“Now I’m content with coughs and colds, repeat scripts and a few skin cancers to keep the wolf from the door…”

Victoria registered 2,297 new cases of Covid-19 and 11 deaths on Wednesday – the highest number of cases Australia has seen in a single day.
