Joint Open Letter from UKMFA and CCVAC re NextCOVE Trial on Moderna Booster Vaccines for Children aged 12-17 years


UKMFA and the Children's Covid Vaccine Advisory Council (led by Dr Ros Jones) have sent an open letter, signed by over 120 doctors, scientists, and healthcare professionals to the Chief Executives and Chairmen of all NextCOVE trial participating centres and NHS Trusts, Dame June Raine (MHRA CEO) and the Chairs of all Local Research Ethics Committees, expressing our deep concerns regarding this trial of Moderna booster vaccines being carried out on UK children aged 12-17 years.

We argue that this trial contravenes medical ethics laws and codes, including the Declaration of Helsinki, the Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) Regulations 2004 and the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (2005), as there is no benefit to children and a significant risk of serious harm.
