‘It is...imperative that any early warning signs of unexpected issues are heeded to safeguard the public’
Peter Limbrick writes: The UK Medical Freedom Alliance have sent an Urgent Open Letter to Matt Hancock, Nadhim Zahawi, Boris Johnson, the MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) and the JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation).
They are raising their concerns about media reports and epidemiological data that indicate that there may be a link between Covid-19 vaccination and a rise in deaths and Covid-19 cases being reported in care homes and in the elderly.
They ask for an urgent audit and investigation into all deaths that have occurred in these cohorts since the Covid -19 vaccine rollout began.
An extract from the open letter:
'Our particular concern is the impact of Covid-19 vaccines on the very elderly and those in care homes. ONS data shows that weekly care home deaths tripled in the two weeks between 8th and 22nd January 2021, at a time when there was a massive increase in the rate of vaccinations of care home residents.
'At the same time, the MHRA CEO, Dr June Raine, stated that Covid-19 vaccine adverse events reports were coming in “thick and fast” but there is no transparency around these reports, unlike in the US. The US government vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS) is open to the public and is already showing a high number of serious adverse events and deaths in the initial stages of the vaccine rollout, compared to previous vaccines, particularly in the elderly. There are, however, public data showing a spike in care home deaths which began very soon after mass vaccination began in this setting just before Christmas and appears to correlate with the increasing rollout of vaccines in this setting and age group. This followed a period of months of stability in the rate of mortality in these cohorts. As stated above, many the deaths from January 2021 have been in UK care homes....'
