Open Letter to Dr Michael Fitzpatrick re Telegraph comments article on Covid-19 Vaccination of Teenagers


UKMFA has submitted a formal complaint to Dr Michael Fitzpatrick and the Telegraph newspaper concerning his comments published in the Telegraph on the 23th August 2021, discussing the process of administering Covid-19 vaccinations to teenagers. We set out our serious concerns regarding some of his statements.  These are mainly related to his misrepresentation of the Covid-19 vaccine safety profile and his trivialisation of the informed consent process.

We argue that the simplified, one-sided, patronising, and propagandised tone and content of this article falls far below 'good medical practice', disregarding readily accessible safety data and communicating a lack of respect for the right of every individual to be comprehensively informed before giving consent as well as their right to refuse treatment without coercion, penalty or restriction being applied.

We ask for an immediate retraction of the original article and the publishing of a more balanced comment.
