The One Nation leader launched into the extraordinary anti-vaccine rant during a ‘business for choice’ event at Ipswich, Queensland, on Thursday night.
Ms Hanson stood in front of the forum and declared she refused to get vaccinated before trashing peak international organisations for pushing a vaccine agenda.
‘I’ll tell you honestly,’ she said. ‘I haven’t had the jab, I don’t intend to have the jab, I’m not putting that s*** into my body.’
Pauline Hanson has slammed the Covid-19 vaccine saying she would not be ‘putting that s***’ into her body before taking aim at the World Health Organisation
‘I’ll tell you honestly,’ Ms Hanson said. ‘I haven’t had the jab, I don’t intend to have the jab, I’m not putting that s*** into my body.’
A member of the forum recorded the speech showing the crowd applauding and cheering on the guest speaker.
‘I’ve taken that stance and that is my choice,’ Ms Hanson continues. ‘I am not an anti-vaxxer, but I am very careful of what I put into my body.’
Ms Hanson told the audience she had maintained a healthy lifestyle and that she believed she would be jeopardising her health by getting the jab.
She then launched a scathing attack against the United Nations and World Health Organisation and accused the international organisations of pushing an agenda.
‘I don’t intend to listen to bureaucrats or politicians, or UN or WHO pushing their own agenda and take away my freedoms, my rights, my choices when that’s why I’m fighting this issue and so should you,’ she said.
The audience is heard in the video clapping and cheering as she makes the accusations.
The majority of Australians appear to disagree with Ms Hanson’s comments with 93 per cent of residents receiving their first dose and 89 per cent two doses.
Queensland, which is Ms Hanson’s state, also passed the 80 per cent double jab threshold this week.
The Covid-19 vaccines have been proven to be highly effective in combatting the virus with Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca offering up to 90 per cent protection.
Ms Hanson has been a vocal opponent to the vaccine and tried to ban jab mandates after attempting to move a bill in the Senate in November.

‘This legislation is urgently needed to arrest and reverse the pandemic of discrimination which has been unleashed on the Australian people,’ she said.
The Federal Government insists the Covid vaccine is optional but state and territory governments as well as private companies have enforced vaccine mandates, requiring jabs for activities like going to work, the pub or the shops.
Ms Hanson introduced a bill to over-ride the states and ban all vaccine discrimination.
In her passionate speech introducing the bill, Senator Hanson called Mr Morrison ‘weak’.
‘The Prime Minister is weak, he says there should be no vaccine mandates – then do something about it,’ she said.
Senator Hanson also defended pro-choice protesters, saying: ‘They’re not idiots, they’re not ratbags, they’re everyday Australians. They’re not extremists.’

The 67-year-old urged other senators to support her bill which she described as ‘vital’.
‘We don’t do this lightly. We do it with sincere regret that such legislation is even necessary. But make no mistake: it is not only necessary, but absolutely vital,’ she said.
‘Senators here are on notice if you don’t support my legislation, then you don’t support Australian democracy and freedom and you don’t support the right to choose.
‘We are not here to wield power against the Australian people. We are here to wield the power of the Australian people. We have no right to take away their rights.’
