The Chiropractic Board of Australia has had enough:
“We will not tolerate registered chiropractors giving misleading or unbalanced advice to patients, or providing advice or care that is not in the patient’s best interests,” chairman Phillip Donato said.

Alfie Dimalanta is a board member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia‘s Victoria branch, and a member of the Australian Spinal Research Foundation. He practices his business at Point Cook Chiropractic, in Victoria. From his website bio:

Do your homework (sigh), with the queen of anti-vaccinationism, Barbara Loe Fisher of the NVIC:
It may as well be over 9000. That’s a really bad anti-vaccine post from a really bad conspiracy website. But, hang on. THREE PEOPLE LIKED IT? Who would do such a thing?
Andrew Victor Smith is a chiropractic assistant at Nervana Chiropractic. He is a chiro student at Murdoch University. He has been a bit of a semi-regular on anti-vaccine Facebook pages, such as the Australian Vaccination Network.
The next one made my eyes bulge. Billy Chow is a national board member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia, and practices his business at Vitality and Wellbeing Centre in Adelaide. Billy Chow liked that post from that conspiracy website indicating that there are almost over 9000 reasons not to vaccinate your kid. “Head of Public Education” for the CAA. This guy:
Holy crap you guys. Holy crap. You have some work to do.
