🇬🇧@COVID19Up: Ministers will be advised against the mass rollout of COVID-19 vaccines to children under 18 in the UK until scientists obtain more data on the health risks, The Telegraph reported on Tuesday.
Experts on the UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) are preparing a statement for release as soon as the end of this week, the report added.
“Scientists want to see more data from the U.S. and elsewhere before taking a firm stand either way. Nobody is going to make a final decision at this point. The JCVI will want to weigh up the benefits against the risks before vaccinating children, and it wants more data,” a government source told the paper.
Committee members have voiced ethical concerns about vaccinating children as they rarely suffer severe COVID-19.

Last week, an “urgent preliminary report of Yellow Card data” compiled by Dr. Tess Lawrie was released by the UK-based Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy Ltd submitted to the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) states that “the MHRA now has more than enough evidence on the Yellow Card system to declare the COVID-19 vaccines unsafe for use in humans.”
Within hours of Dr. Lawrie’s analysis getting published, Twitter suspended her account.
Tess Lawrie, who ranks among the best analysts of medical evidence in the business, has had her Twitter account suspended. This comes just after her analysis of adverse effects of vaccines. She called for the program to be stopped. Twitter stopped her. #Censorship will not work. pic.twitter.com/nKrLOcUz7w
