HomeCOVID-19Health professionals: Join our child vaccine plea to the new PM

Health professionals: Join our child vaccine plea to the new PM


READERS of TCW will be aware of the many letters I have co-ordinated and sent to the government’s senior health officials regarding the safety and necessity of Covid-19 vaccines for children. Our first was to Dr June Raine, chief executive of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in May last year when we heard that a child vaccine ‘roll-out’ was planned

We pointed out then what we continued to point out when despite our warnings the programme was announced, that there was no need for it and the risk outweighed any benefits. Tragically we have been proved right time and again, yet the MHRA and the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) have continued to ignore our well-evidenced serious concerns, as have the Chief Medical Officers and successive Health Secretaries, despite the long list of highly qualified and concerned doctors and scientists who have signed the open letters

By February of this year some 300 such professionals had publicly supported our demand to halt the child vaccine programme in light of the known and acknowledged myocarditis adverse reactions in young people. 

In July, with the advent of a new Health Secretary, we wrote again, only to be ignored again.

Now we have a new Prime Minister and are presenting a letter directly to 10 Downing Street on Monday appealing to her to pause the vaccine for healthy under-18s. I am now calling on all concerned doctors, scientists and health professionals to add their signature to it.

You can do this by emailing Hart with your details here, putting ‘Letter to Liz Truss’ into the message box.

This is the letter and signatories so far:

September 2022

The Rt Hon Liz Truss
The Prime Minister
10, Downing Street
London SW1A 2AA 

Dear Ms Truss,

Re: Covid-19 Vaccines for Children

Firstly, congratulations on becoming our new Prime Minister.

You will no doubt have many pressing matters as you take up office. But what can be more important than the health and well-being of the nation’s children? 

We, the undersigned health professionals and scientists, have huge concerns about the safety and necessity of Covid-19 vaccines for children, for reasons detailed in the letters enclosed. Between us, we have written numerous letters to the regulators, copied to your predecessor, regarding use of these mRNA products in children. We call upon you, urgently, to pause the Covid-19 vaccine rollout for healthy under-18s while a thorough and independent safety review is undertaken. We urge you to reconsider their deployment for the following reasons:

·         Covid-19 was always a much milder illness in children, with a risk of death for otherwise healthy children of around 1 in 2 million. Successive variants have become less virulent, reducing the risk still further.

·         In addition, there is considerable evidence of rapidly waning vaccine efficacy, and increasing concerns over immediate vaccines injuries (such as myocarditis with its known potential for severe and possibly permanent cardiac damage). 

·         There is still a total lack of long-term safety data and the worrying rise in excess non-Covid deaths in young males aged 15-19 years has yet to be explained. 

·         Lastly, the vast majority of children have already been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 repeatedly and have achieved demonstrably effective immunity, which is far superior to vaccine-induced immunity.

In short, the balance of benefit and risk used to support the rollout of mRNA vaccines to the elderly and vulnerable in 2021 is inappropriate and inapplicable for children in 2022. 

Below are links to all the fully referenced letters we have written to the MHRA, the JCVI and the CMOs over the past sixteen months. The detailed questions posed have never been properly addressed by these regulators. You may be aware that members of the Pandemic Response All Party Parliamentary Group also wrote to the JCVI in January 2022 regarding the documented increase in all-cause mortality in 15-19-year-old males, again with no satisfactory reply addressing their concerns.

·         30th June 202

·         14th February 2022 

·         19th January 2022 

·         7th January 2022  (reply to letter of 10/12/21)

·         10th December 2021 re consent

·         14th November 2021 re safety

·         23rd August 2021 re safety

·         6th June 2021 re safety

·         17th May 2021 re safety

·         17th May 2021  appendix to above letter.

Groups of health professionals from around the world have similar concerns and indeed some countries have already paused children’s Covid-19 vaccines, particularly for those who have already had SARS-CoV-2 infection. The Danish Minister of Health recently declared that vaccinating children had been a mistake and has withdrawn it for healthy children. It is gratifying to see that in the UK the vaccine rollout for healthy 5-11s has been discontinued last week, but this leaves 12-17-years-olds still in an unnecessary programme.

The health of the nation’s children is of paramount concern and must surely be a high priority for an incoming Prime Minister. You will no doubt be aware of Sir Christopher Chope’s tireless work on a Covid-19 Vaccine Damage Bill, pushing for proper and fair compensation for thousands of vaccine-damaged adults. You cannot allow the risk of Covid-19 vaccine injuries in children, who stand to gain zero benefit from vaccination due to the overwhelming majority having already been infected, and who have therefore already acquired natural immunity.

We entreat you to apply the precautionary principle to the use of these products, which still have no long-term safety data and remain in Phase 3 clinical trials. The evidence of damage that this rushed policy is causing for children mounts daily. 

In addition to concerns about the physical risk to children posed by these mRNA products, we would also remind you of the acknowledged and significant psychological and educational damage to children which resulted from the school closures and masking requirements implemented by your predecessor. We would ask that, as a matter of urgency, you make clear that school closures and masking of schoolchildren will not be repeated under your watch. 

At the beginning of your term as Prime Minister, you have a critical opportunity to prevent avoidable damage to children, and the inevitable outcry and backlash that will follow, by pausing the rollout with immediate effect, as well as bringing to an end all harmful Covid restrictions in schools. This is a risk-free action.  Until then, the political and health risks of these damaging policies will only escalate. 

We eagerly await your response. 

Wishing you well in the challenging job you have ahead.

Yours sincerely
