Historic plea for vaccine injured on the Isle of Man


JULY 5 is Tynwald, the Isle of Man’s national day, when any and all citizens may petition the Members the House of Keys (MHKs) and their government. This year a group of vaccine injured and their supporters did just that. They lodged a petition to raise awareness of vaccine injury with the public and with the express aim of making their government, including the MHKs, to recognise it. Awareness previously had been limited to a single Manx Radio report alone.

In a brave and historic move, three members of the IoM Covid Vaccine Injured Support Group took the opportunity to ask for a vaccine injury service to recognise the many Covid-19 vaccine injured on the Isle, to request inquests into deaths following vaccination and to request an independent inquiry into the ethics, necessity and safety of Covid-19 vaccines. The petition asks for the Covid-19 vaccine rollout to be stopped immediately, and that a public notice should be issued from the health body Manx Care citing safety concerns. You can read the petition here. (It is a petition, or request, to the Isle of Man Government, not a public petition to sign.) 

The good news is that the group’s efforts have been rewarded and the petition has been accepted. 

It was instigated by three people with different concerns: for one it was motivated by his need for an inquest into the death of his mother, who he believed to have died as a result of the vaccine; for the second, a seriously vaccine injured petitioner, it was the urgent need for proper medical help, and for the third, who had already set up this Facebook support group, it was the broad aim of making sure that all injured and their families get the support and help they need and that their voices are heard.

Having raised awareness through the media opportunities on the day of petition, a month later the group are worried that their government shows no sign of changing course and is not advertising full information on the vaccines in a continued abuse of informed consent. Manx Care, they also tell me, is showing no urgency or interest in gathering data. Furthermore it is continuing to press the vaccine on vulnerable babies as young as six months. 

Yet as the group point out, such immune-compromised children were excluded from the trials, and there is no data on the safety or efficacy in that group. This was stated on the petition.

Many questions need to be asked and it is time to open up the discussion to get help for the injured help, to ensure risk/benefit is right and to stop continuation of the programme without proper data supporting it. 

That is why they are asking Isle of Man residents to email their concerns directly to the MHKs and demand to have them picked up.
