What's at stake?

On behalf of many extremely concerned parents the Covid19 Assembly is taking legal action to challenge the Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)'s decision to approve the Pfizer/BioNtech vaccine for use in 12-17 year olds.

If successful, we anticipate we will have saved the health and lives of many children and the heartbreak of their families.

Who's involved?

The Covid19 Assembly is a UK based, non-profit organisation working to end all Coronavirus related restrictions and to prevent them happening again. We have put this case together to help a number of concerned parents determined to prevent the unnecessary injection of children with the Covid-19 vaccines.

Our spokesperson, and a driving force of the case, is broadcaster and mother of three Bev Turner who has repeatedly urged caution in vaccinating children with these new vaccines.

We have assembled a world class group of experts doctors and scientists, including renowned Canadian pathologist Dr Roger Hodkinson MA, MB, FRCPC, FCAP, the US specialist in mRNA vaccines Dr Robert Malone MD, MS,  South African-born medical doctor and research design analyst residing in the UK Dr Tess Lawrie MBBCh DFSRH PhD,  British paediatrician Dr Ros Jones MD FRCPCH and many others. We now need, without delay, to fund preparations for Judicial Review of the MHRA's decision.

There can be no argument that this 'vaccine' is novel and comes with associated risks.

We have a strong case

We have substantial evidence we are satisfied clearly establishes that there is no legal, moral or medical justification for children to receive this treatment. There can be no argument that this 'vaccine' is novel and comes with associated risks. It has not yet completed clinical trials to demonstrate efficacy beyond a few months and therefore there simply can be no long-term safety data.

We strongly believe that it us unethical and unnecessary for this treatment to be widely used by under 18s and there are hundreds of senior doctors and scientists who agree with us, over 60 of whom put their names to an open letter to the MHRA weeks before the authorisation.

There have now been several reports of serious and fatal outcomes in under 18s suspected to have been caused by the Pfizer vaccine in the US alone. By challenging the authorisation for use in 12-17 year-olds,, our hope is to prevent any children suffering unnecessarily. If successful, we anticipate we will have saved the health and lives of many children and the heartbreak of their families.


How you can help

Whilst many of us have been working on this for months, we now need your help. Working with lawyers from Laworfiction and leading barristers, there is a tremendous amount of work to do putting everything together and to issue the legal proceedings which must be done as soon as possible.

We cannot do this alone. Those who wish to push this treatment onto our children have limitless resources and we can expect them to be used to fight this challenge. Its outcome will almost certainly be appealed and the legal costs in this case will easily run through six figures, potentially more. 

Please help us by donating to support this action and share details with as many people as you can – particularly those who are likely to donate!

Permission hearing - 28 September

Having been knocked back by the Court of Appeal, we are simply back to what the Court had first ordered: a hearing set for Tuesday 28 September to consider whether the case is given permission to proceed.

As we are back in the Administrative Court, barrister Francis Hoar will be presenting the case for the Claimants and barrister, Mr Ewan West, for the government.

There is no indication yet that it will be livestreamed but we will let everyone know if it is.

Contrary to suggestion by the government, this case is not about the protection of just two children who themselves may be likely to resist injection with what the manufacturers accept is novel "gene therapy". It is to protect thousands, indeed millions, of healthy children against treatment with no benefit but plenty of risk of harm.

Thank you for your continued support and repeated pledges.

Court of Appeal Lists Hearing for Weds 22 September

Despite a last ditch attempt by the government to persuade the Court of Appeal against it, the Court has listed the case for an interim hearing this Wednesday 22 September.

The Court will decide whether to pause the roll out of injections to healthy children age 12-15 and 16-17 pending a fuller hearing of the matter.

We await details of times. The lawyers will be present in person with press also. The general public will be able to watch the case on livestream on line.

Come back here for updates and we will post the link when available.

Meanwhile, if you are a parent or guardian, you should ensure the school has a written note from you (a) that you do not consent to your child being vaccinated and (b) neither you nor your child has been given adequate information in order for it to be possible for informed consent to be given. 

Please keep pledging your support to this important case.

Third time lucky? Up to the Court of Appeal

On 15 September, the Claimants applied for a third time for the Court to listen to their argument, for just half a day, before the programme of mass injection of healthy children got underway.

The defence and objections from the government have been almost completely technical. There has been no detail of any defence on the basis that the vaccination program is justified and of benefit to the children or anyone else. Rather, the thrust of the government's defence is to argue the Court cannot look at the evidence or question the recent decisions.

This morning, 17 September, the Court refused to allow the Claimants into Court before 28th September.  On the evidence presented to the Court by the Claimants, this could dangerously too late for many. 

Here you can see the Order and reasons of the Court

The Claimants have this afternoon, 17 September, filed an appeal to the Court of Appeal asking for Order to be overturned and for the Court of Appeal to consider the matter itself. 

To be clear, the main purpose of the hearing will be to decide whether or not the government should be required to pause the mass injections.  We expect to hear on Monday whether a hearing will be happen on Tuesday 21st September.

This case could not be more important. Please pledge to show your support.

Court rejects urgent need for hearing

The Court has on 7 September 2021, and for a second time, refused the Claimants' application for an urgent hearing.

The Claimants had asked for just half a day for the Court to listen to oral argument to consider whether to pause the roll out of injections of experimental mRNA vaccine technology, producing increasing reports of clotting and other adverse effects including death, still under emergency authorisation and never before given to humans, to the whole of our healthy population of children aged 12-17.

It would be inappropriate here and in any public forum fully to express the strength of our disappointment and frustration at this decision. The government's lawyers had been asked why there is any need to press ahead and what harm would be caused by a short delay. As the Court was informed, they were unwilling or unable to answer.

Looking forward, it is unlikely that an appeal would succeed or move things forward more quickly. The reality, therefore, is that there is no potential of a hearing before the week commencing Monday 20 September.

The Court's view was that to delay consideration of the Claimants' application for 14 days to allow the government to prepare its response was not in fact a refusal. However, that delay has the practical effect of denying the urgent relief sought and leaves the full resources and machinery of the state to be put into gear, as soon as the government considers it has backing from the four CMOs to give it sufficient political cover, to proceed with the mass injections.

As the public is aware, the latest JCVI advice has been against roll out and the government appears to be looking to the CMOs for other excuses, not necessarily related to any health benefit to the children, to justify proceeding despite the JCVI advice. You can be sure that the reasons for any decision will be scrutinised carefully by the legal team to consider whether another urgent application to Court may be appropriate.

While the Courts refuse to step in, it is essential that parents and commentators make their views known about the government's intention to rush ahead with this roll out.  

This is going to be a hard fought and time intensive legal battle. Please continue to pledge your support and share and encourage others to do so, across the world.

Injunction application made to Court to pause roll out

This case was formally issued in the Administrative Court in London on 2nd September and the claim has been served on the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care and JCVI.  The Claimants are 12 and 16 year-old sisters. The Court has made an Order that the Claimants' identity shall remain anonymous.  

You can read here the:

We have applied to the Court for an urgent hearing to consider an interim order to pause any roll out of the vaccines to under 18s until the case can have a full hearing. Although the Court has shortened the normal time for the government to provide its initial response, from the usual 21 days to 14 days, the Judge initially considering the papers has for the time being refused the application for a hearing to consider pausing the roll out. The legal team has filed an urgent application to the Court to reconsider that decision.

The documents are long but worth taking time to read. They expose some of the important information not widely known or reported in the mainstream media although the start and end of the case is that vaccines remain of no benefit to healthy children but present considerable risk of known and unknown harms.

Legal action commences

Today, 2nd August, the first step in the legal action has begun. The letter before action has been sent to the MHRA and to Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care. They have been asked to reply within 14 days, a time shorter than is usual in judicial review applications given the urgency.

The text of the letter can be seen here: Letter before action to MHRA and Sec of State for DHSC

Since launching this campaign, the JCVI have issued a statement providing further information and stating its view that the vaccine should not be recommended to children and young people, not just up to age 15, but to age 17. We are therefore able to challenge use of the vaccine up to the age of 17, not just 15. and we are doing so.

It is important to note that particularly vulnerable children who may benefit from any treatment will be not affected by this action. It is open to the government and MHRA to revoke the authorisation for general use but to impose conditions of use so that, where the clinical assessment for an individual child is shown that they will benefit, treatment remains available.

Thank you everyone who has donated so far. Please keep up the donations and keep sharing far and wide. We have a long way to go but need to get there quickly!
