Still hounded after three years – mother who refuses to let them jab her disabled son


THERE have been many shocking cases of legal, social or psychological pressure to take covid vaccination. Just as shocking is that the mix of hysteria, control and malice driving such pressures has still not gone away two years after deaths from covid have petered out to a level not warranting any press coverage.

Sarah and Tom’s story (their real names cannot be given as their case is before the Court of Protection) has been reported in the Telegraph and by John Campbell on his YouTube channel. In summary, Sarah has been trying to prevent her 24-year-old son Tom from being vaccinated for three years. Tom has a genetic abnormality which means that he has a mental age of about 18 months. He also has a number of physical health problems which mean that even a trip to the dentist requires him to take antibiotics to ensure no potentially fatal bacterial infection enters his bloodstream.

Sarah told her GP that she didn’t want her son to receive the mRNA vaccine as she had concerns about its safety for Tom, given his medical conditions. Shortly thereafter, she received unannounced visits from a social worker and a physiotherapist, both asking why Tom had not received a covid vaccine. In April 2021, she received a court summons, starting a legal battle about whether Tom should be  vaccinated which has still not concluded.

In 2022, a judge ruled that Tom should be vaccinated in his own best interest adding that a ‘further factor’ was whether Tom ‘may have made an altruistic decision to receive the vaccine to protect the community at large’. Sarah has appealed against this decision and a further hearing is set for early July.

TCW readers know that the ‘vaccines’ are about as effective in preventing transmission of covid as a rabbit’s foot, and even mainstream medical and scientific journals acknowledge the evidence for this claim is, to say the least, contentious (see herehere and here). The judge should have known better than to give any weight to the idea that people should take medication for the benefit of others, especially as he acknowledged that the court was ‘ill-equipped . . . to act as an adjudicator as to whether the vaccines that are part of the government’s anti-covid policy are really safe’.

This case descends to another level of insanity when one knows that Tom has had two bouts of covid, from which he had recovered quickly. Whatever argument made for the effectiveness of covid vaccination falls apart when dealing with someone who has already had a viral infection. As early as January 2022, the national public health agency of the United States, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), reported that covid hospitalisation rates for those with a previous infection were the same for the vaccinated and unvaccinated (John Campbell provides an intelligible analysis of their figures here), indicating that vaccination offers no extra protection for such people. Further work has found prior covid infection provides better immunity against re-infection and severe illness than vaccination.

The vaccine zealots also need to explain why covid deaths and hospitalisation have fallen at the same time as the uptake of vaccine boosters has tailed off. The most obvious and plausible explanation is that increasing rates of naturally acquired immunity have given people all the protection they need and most now see covid vaccination as about as necessary as mask wearing or ‘social distancing’ (the most ghastly and inaccurate phrase to enter our language in recent years). 

Why this stubbornness to avoid admitting the obvious? Follow the money, it’s said. As this Guardian plug for vaccine boosters admits, the government is likely to end up with more than £200million-worth of pre-paid covid shots that will not be used. EU countries and Switzerland are also having to throw away industrial quantities of unused vaccines, though being understandably sheepish about admitting as to how much needs to be disposed of. The public have moved on from covid but the authorities have not, so Sarah continues to be pursued through the courts as it would be too embarrassing to admit the pointlessness of it all.
