A silent protest against mandatory vaccines for healthcare works has been disbanded by police, after dozens took up camp in a Melbourne park.  

Around 50 people gathered in the leafy Edinburgh Gardens in the inner-city suburb of Fitzroy to take part in the peaceful protest around 11am on Monday. 

It comes after seven consecutive days of violent protests across the city first sparked by anger over a vaccination mandate for the construction industry.

Thousands of tradesman and anti-vaxxer protesters were seen marching through the streets, some pelting squad cars and officers with bottles and other projectiles. 

Hundreds of arrests have been made, with footage of ugly clashes between demonstrators and authorities still circulating on social media.  

However, police were more lenient on the throngs of 'health workers' that sat cross-legged in the park for about 20 minutes before they were dispersed by officers. 

Footage from the protest shows attendees holding posters saying 'healthcare workers are being silenced' and 'last year hero, this year unemployed'. 

Several attended the peaceful demonstration wearing medical scrubs.  

One protester wearing a nurses uniform said 'bus loads' of officers arrived on the scene around 20 minutes after the protest began. 

The woman confirmed no arrests were made and no fines were issued.
