General COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout
UKMFA Letter to Richard Pebody re Eurosurveillance Rapid Communication Paper Claiming Hundreds of Thousands of Lives Saved by COVID-19 Vaccines
UKMFA wrote to the lead author, Richard Pebody, demanding an immediate retraction of their paper, which concluded that over 450,000 deaths of over 60s had been prevented by the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
We argue that their analysis used an incorrect assumption/estimate of vaccine effectiveness and the resulting figures calculated in the paper differ starkly from real world, observed, data.View LetterDownload PDF
UKMFA Open Letter to the General Medical Council re Unethical Practices in the COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout
UKMFA has sent an Open Letter to Dame Clare Marx, Chair of the General Medical Council, in which we detail our concerns about certain practices, relating to informed consent, evidence-based medicine and conflicts of interest, that are expected of UK doctors involved in the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines.
We believe that there are compelling reasons to investigate such practices and those who insist upon enforcing them. We also request that any doctors resisting such practices receive protection from their regulatory body, the General Medical Council (GMC), as we understand that, currently, they have cause to fear investigation, and possible suspension.View LetterDownload PDF

UKMFA has sent an Urgent Open Letter to Matt Hancock, Nadim Zahawi, Boris Johnson, the MHRA and the JCVI in which we raise concerns about media reports and epidemiological data indicating 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. We are asking for an urgent audit and investigation into ALL deaths that have occurred in these cohorts since the COVID-19 vaccine rollout began.Download PDF

UKMFA have written an urgent Open Letter to the Vaccine Regulators and Matt Hancock outlining our serious concerns that a rushed rollout of any COVID-19 Vaccine may compromise safety, which is not justified as there is no evidence of an existential threat to society from SARS-CoV-2. We urge them not to go ahead with authorisation or a rollout until our concerns are addressed.

Informed Consent for COVID-19 Vaccines
UKMFA Open Letter to GMC Chair re COVID-19 Vaccine & Doctors' Failure to Comply with GMC Consent Guidelines
UKMFA Open Letter to Dame Carrie MacEwen, General Medical Council Chair, sent on 18 July 2022. We have not yet received a reply, despite asking for a response within 2 weeks, so we resent the letter by email and in hard copy on 28 September 2022 and requested an urgent response from the GMC.
In our letter we raise and detail grave concerns that the GMC is failing to maintain standards of decision-making and informed consent, as determined by its own guidance. Specific concerns relate to:
- Provision of care in COVID-19 vaccination centres.
- Omission of information regarding risks of COVID-19 vaccines when obtaining consent.
We outline in detail, the practical aspects of GMC Guidelines we are referring to and highlight the discrepancies with UKHSA Guidance and the experience of doctors and patients in daily practice, with regards to COVID-19 vaccination.View LetterDownload PDF

COVID-19 Vaccines in Pregnancy
Open Letter to RCOG, RCM and UKHSA re Safety Concerns of Covid-19 Vaccinations In Pregnancy
Several UKMFA doctors have joined over 60 doctors in signing this open letter to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Royal College of Midwives and UK Health Security Agency, calling for an urgent review of the evidence around the safety of Covid vaccine use in pregnancy.
We argue that the current official advice "is not grounded in robust data based on ethically conducted research" and evidence the multiple serious safety signals and research data that should prompt an immediate halt to the rollout to pregnant women pending a full, independent safety analysis.
The letter concludes that "we have a collective duty to restore the principles of medical ethics to our practice and to clinical research to protect the most vulnerable groups from harm, and this includes pregnant women and their babies."View Letter
UKMFA Open Letter to Chair of Expert Group Reviewing Excess Neonatal Mortality in Scotland
UKMFA have sent this open letter to Dr Helen Mactier and Health Improvement Scotland to appeal to them to ensure that all possible factors which may have contributed to the alarming recent increase in Scotland's neonatal mortality considered, including the possibility of COVID-19 vaccination having a causative effect.
We present evidence and data to support the hypothesis that COVID-19 vaccination of pregnant women may be causing or contributing to the tragic increase in neonatal deaths.View LetterDownload PDF
UKMFA Open Letter to Professor Asma Khalil re COVID-19 Vaccine Pregnancy Safety Claims in Nature Medicine Paper
In this letter to Professor Khalil we raise serious concerns with the conclusions presented in her recent publication in Nature Medicine, entitled “Systematic review and meta-analysis of the effectiveness and perinatal outcomes of COVID-19 vaccination in pregnancy”, which were recently publicised widely to doctors and the public under headlines claiming that COVID-19 vaccination reduces the risk of stillbirths.
We argue that the data presented does not support these conclusions, and challenge the message of reassurance regarding COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness and safety in pregnancy. We request an urgent retraction of this paper for the reasons laid out in detail in our letter.View LetterDownload PDF
UKMFA Open Letter to Dr Sarah Stock and Editor of Nature Medicine re COVID-19 Vaccine Pregnancy Safety Claims
UKMFA has written to Dr Sarah Stock (lead author), and subsequently to João Monteiro (editor of Nature Medicine), concerning the paper “SARS-CoV-2 Infection and COVID-19 vaccination rates in pregnant women in Scotland”. We highlight and detail serious flaws in their methodology and argue that these flaws preclude any conclusions being drawn regarding efficacy or safety of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnancy.
UKMFA has called for an immediate retraction of this paper but has to date not received any satisfactory rebuttal to the arguments presented.

We are concerned about several simplified, misleading and biased claims Dr Kelly made about the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines, that are not supported by the available evidence and which may seriously impede the process of obtaining fully informed consent from pregnant women.View LetterDownload PDF

UKMFA has sent an Open Letter to the Chief Medical Officer, the Chief Nursing Officer and the Interim Chief Pharmaceutical Officer in Scotland, in response to their recent update on the Scottish COVID-19 Vaccination program sent to Scottish Health Boards and Local Authorities. In this letter, we detail our concerns about the implications of the continued rollout of this program, specifically with regards to pregnant women.

UKMFA Open Letter to Prof Calum Semple re Comments on BBC Podcast for Children re COVID-19 Vaccines
UKMFA has submitted a formal complaint to Prof Semple (Consultant Paediatrician) concerning his comments made on a BBC Podcast, released on 15th September 2021, where he answered children’s questions about the COVID-19 jab.
We set out our grave concerns regarding some of his statements, mainly related to his gross misrepresentation of the COVID-19 vaccine safety profile and his contribution to the propagandisation of COVID-19 vaccines for children. We argue that all medical doctors bear the responsibility to convey information comprehensively and based on all available evidence, and that his privileged and influential position of reaching a large audience via the BBC Podcast means he must be held to the highest standards of ethical medicine, based on scientific evidence. We argue that the simplified, one-sided and propagandised tone and content of his contribution falls far below the bar set by good medical practice, disregarding readily accessible safety data and communicating a lack of respect for anyone questioning the narrative.
We request that Prof Semple immediately reviews and retracts his statements and issue a more balanced response to the questions asked, including comprehensive and scientifically validated information regarding the available evidence on safety concerns in teenagers.View LetterDownload PDF
UKMFA Open Letter to Dr Michael Fitzpatrick re Misleading Statements in Telegraph 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.View LetterDownload PDF
UKMFA Urgent Email to UK Chief Medical Officers re COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout to Children 12-15 years
On the 4th September 2021, UKMFA sent an urgent email to four UK Chief Medical Officers who have been asked to decide on whether or not to give the go ahead for the Government to rollout the COVID-19 jabs to children aged 12-15 years, potentially over-riding the JCVI advice that this is not in the best medical interest of children.

UKMFA Open Letter to Headteachers and Teachers re COVID-19 Vaccination of Children in Schools
The UK Medical Freedom Alliance has written an open letter to Headteachers and Teachers to outline our grave medical and ethical concerns about a rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines to children in schools.
We set out the potential legal liability of school leaders in the event of any resulting harm to children whilst in their care.
We also raise concerns about some vaccine promotion material being provided to schools by external organisations, as "educational resources", which do not give the full and balanced information required to make an informed decision.View LetterDownload PDF
UKMFA Open Letter to Professor Devi Sridhar re Misleading Claims in BBC Newsround Episode on Children's Vaccines
UKMFA have sent a letter of complaint to Prof Sridhar following her claims made on BBC Newsround, which is shown in most UK schools, which made several false or misleading claims including that the COVID-19 vaccines are 100% safe, that children should have the vaccine to protect their parents, and that the benefits to children outweigh any risks.
To present such a simplified and biased message is, in our opinion, deeply irresponsible, amounts to propaganda, and negatively impacts on the process of giving fully informed consent. We have requested that Prof Sridhar immediately retracts the entire message and issues a clear public apology for misrepresenting the facts relating to the safety concerns of COVID-19 vaccines in children.View LetterDownload PDF
UKMFA Urgent Open Letter to the MHRA re Emergency Authorisation of the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine for Children
08/06/21 UPDATED 06/09/21
UKMFA has sent an Open Letter to the the MHRA in which we raise grave concerns about this emergency authorisation, citing evidence of known and potential harms to children that may result and the serious ethical issues this decision raises.
Given that these vaccines will have virtually no benefit to the children themselves, it is profoundly unethical and indefensible to vaccinate children, especially with an experimental vaccine using novel technology, in what appears to be a misguided attempt to protect adults and achieve herd immunity. We call on the MHRA to exercise caution and immediately reverse their decision.View LetterDownload PDF
We received a letter of reply from Dr June Raine, Chief Executive of MHRA, on the 20th August 2021.Download PDF MHRA Letter
UKMFA Open Letter to Child Health Experts and Regulators re COVID-19 Vaccination of Children
This open letter from UKMFA to child health experts and regulators raises serious concerns about the administration of COVID-19 vaccines to healthy children. We reference current scientific evidence that clearly shows the 'risk v benefit' calculation does NOT support administering experimental COVID-19 vaccines to healthy children, who have no risk from COVID-19, yet face known and unknown risks from the vaccines.
We conclude that it would be irresponsible and unethical, as well as unnecessary, to include any children under 18 years in either the national COVID-19 vaccine rollout or in any clinical trials. The end of the current Phase 3 trials on adults must be awaited, as well as several years of safety data to rule out any potential adverse effects on autoimmune diseases, fertility, genetics (offspring) or cancers.Download PDF

UKMFA Open Letter to Government Ministers and MPs re Vaccine/Immunity Passports
In this Open Letter, from UKMFA and Lawyers for Liberty, we detail our grave legal, ethical, and medical concerns, in response to recent rhetoric from government and private businesses, regarding the introduction of Vaccine/Immunity passports.
We urge a return to individual responsibility for our own health and argue that it is disproportionate and unnecessary to go down the route of further restrictions and loss of freedoms that a Vaccine/Immunity Passport would entail.
We argue that Vaccine Passports represent a dangerous path which has no place in a democratic and free society, and which would be a profoundly illiberal, undemocratic, and un-British policy.
