Medical Exemption Forms
PROMIC Covid-19 Vaccine Medical Exemption Forms
UKMFA and Alliance for Natural Health International (ANH) have created an umbrella organisation called PROMIC (Professionals for Medical Informed Consent and Non-Discrimination) for organisations of health professionals, scientists and lawyers, established in August 2021.
On the PROMIC website we have published three Covid-19 Vaccine Medical Exemption forms - one for a health professional to sign and two self-exemption forms (one for adults and one for under 16s for the parent to sign).
There is also an Informed Consent Letter Template on the website for your GP to sign confirming that s/he has consulted with you and obtained full, legal informed consent. If this is not possible then s/he can sign accordingly and you can proceed to apply for vaccine exemption.
The two main objectives of PROMIC are to facilitate:
- Properly informed medical consent, especially in relation to COVID-19 vaccination and testing, and;
- the avoidance of discrimination by governments authorities, institutions or private companies based on an individual’s COVID-19 vaccination or testing status.
