UKMFA Open Letter to Professor Devi Sridhar re 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

Open Letter re Vaccine/Immunity Passports from UKMFA and Lawyers for Liberty to Government and MPs
In this Open Letter 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.
We are asking our supporters to send this letter to your MP and have created a Word Doc Template cover letter for you to use.View LetterDownload PDFDownload Word Doc Template
Open Letter to Employers re Covid-19 Testing Requirements for Employees
The UKMFA have written an open letter for employees to share with their employers who are requiring their healthy, asymptomatic employees to perform regular testing (Lateral Flow Test or PCR) for Covid-19. We appeal to employers to refrain from encouraging any further mass testing of asymptomatic individuals for Covid-19.
We outline how the rate of testing has significantly increased and how this approach threatens the restoration of the economy, as a large proportion of the healthy workforce are having to isolate unnecessarily, causing shortages independent of any clinical illness. We set out specific reasons for our concerns regarding: the reliability/validity of testing for Covid-19, the prevalence of clinical disease, and the restoration of viable businesses.View LetterDownload PDF
Open Letter to Scottish Health Secretary and Chief Medical Officer on the flawed policy of routine Covid-19 testing of asymptomatic health workers
UK Medical Freedom Alliance have sent an Open Letter to the Scottish CMO and Health Secretary (copying in their English counterparts) asking for the practice of routine mass testing of asymptomatic health workers to stop. We argue that this is not founded on a solid scientific base and is resulting a large proportion of the healthy workforce having to isolate unnecessarily. This is causing healthcare worker shortages independent of any clinical illness, and threatens to cripple the NHS.View LetterDownload PDF
Open Letter from UK Medical Freedom Alliance Regarding Mass Community Testing for Covid-19
The UKMFA have written an Open Letter to Boris Johnson, First Ministers, Health Ministers, Government Ministers, Sir Graham Brady and Mark Harper calling for an immediate halt to COVID-19 testing of asymptomatic individuals in the community, workplaces, schools, and especially for children.
We argue that currently available tests for SARS-CoV-2 are not validated and are deeply flawed; that there is no evidence for viral transmission from asymptomatic individuals; that there is no justification for the spiralling financial costs incurred by mass-testing; that there is a high socio-economic cost for those testing false positive, who are forced to isolate; that there is the potential for discrimination against people declining to be tested; and that there are unknown but potential risks of regular testing to children’s physical and mental health.View LetterDownload PDF
Open Letter to Education Minister on Mass-Testing in Schools

It outlines the legal rights of the employee to informed consent and medical freedom, and relevant employment law protections afforded to employees. It summarises the legal duties of employers.

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

UK Medical Freedom Alliance has written an Open Letter to all University Vice Chancellors and Higher Education College Senior Management, appealing to them to refrain from imposing any Covid-19 health-related conditions on students accessing education at their institutions, and urging them specifically to strongly resist imposing any requirements for students to accept a Covid-19 vaccine.
We set out our concerns relating to Covid-19 vaccine safety, and the violation of laws and guidelines around informed consent that would result from imposing this condition on students' access to education.View LetterDownload PDF

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 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 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.
We highlight the paucity of scientific evidence to support current policies and the potential risks of harm, especially to those population cohorts not represented in clinical Covid-19 vaccine trials.View LetterDownload PDF

The 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 that are expected of UK doctors with regards to 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

We also raise concerns about the development of a culture within nursing, discouraging nurses to come forward to report potential issues which challenge the official Government and NHS narrative and polices.View LetterDownload PDF
Open Letter from UK Medical Freedom Alliance Regarding Covid-19 Vaccination of Children
This open letter to child health experts and regulators raises serious concerns about the administration of Covid-19 vaccines into 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
Open Letter to Government and Vaccine Regulators re possible Covid-19 vaccine-related deaths in the elderly and Care Homes
The UKMFA have sent an Urgent letter to Matt Hancock, Nadim Zahawi, Boris Johnson, the MHRA and the JCVI raising our 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. 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

Open Letter to Professor Calum Semple re his comments made on a 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 it is imperative that he is 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
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.View LetterDownload PDF
Open Letter to the British Society of Immunology re Natural Immunity v Vaccine Induced Immunity to Covid-19
UKMFA have sent an Open Letter to the President and Clinical Secretary of the British Society for Immunology addressing our concerns about an infographic published by the BSI entitled "Immunity to Covid-19". We believe this BSI infographic contains misleading information and unsubstantiated claims that are in direct contradiction to published scientific evidence.
We have asked the BSI to immediately review and edit this infographic and to issue a fully referenced, corrected version in line with the evidence we present.View LetterDownload PDF
