Truth Legal Leads Legal Challenge Over Covid Vaccines For Children

September 19, 2021,
Andrew Gray,

Truth Legal is leading a legal challenge against the government’s recent decision to recommend that 12 to 15 year olds receive the Covid vaccine.

Spearheaded by Gloucestershire-based charity, Consent, the aim is to stop children getting vaccinated without fully informed consent from their parents.

This comes after the recent news that Professor Chris Witty, the government’s chief medical officer, has recommended a single Covid vaccine for 12 to 15 year olds, stating that it would have wider benefits for mental health and education.

However, Consent believes that many experts still have mixed views over the decision and is therefore launching a legal challenge, instructing Truth Legal to handle the case.

Commenting on the challenge, Truth Legal’s founder Andrew Gray said:

“We are representing Consent in their quest of investigating what protocol the government is intending to follow to guarantee the safety of our children and ensure that parental consent is a key element of consideration.

We have written to the Department of Health, Public Health England and NHS England to demand their policy on the vaccination of children. We still await their reply.”

Oliver Müller, a trustee for Consent said:

“We are very concerned that children will be able to consent to a medical treatment, which even experts are divided over and which may not be in the child’s best interest.

Even parents may not have enough information to make a fully informed and therefore legally valid consent decision. We are prepared to go to court and have retained leading counsel and solicitors at Truth Legal.”

Local Harrogate news outlet, The Stray Ferret, has reported on this story here.
