[back] Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation

[A classic case of the Fox in charge of the henhouse.]

Demonstration against the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) on
3rd October 2009 outside the Houses of Parliament.
12 noon.

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) have taken over the
control of the UK vaccination schedule and now have the power to bring in new
vaccines without government approval even if they haven't been safety tested.
Prior to this, all new vaccines would have to pass through parliament and be
voted on before they were introduced. Now the government is compelled to agree
with anything JCVI say, even if there is no science to back it up.

JCVI are also exploring whether to get a 'guardian of the state' for all
unvaccinated children and sue their parents to FORCE them to vaccinate - this
means that vegetarians will be forced to take animal products via vaccines,
people will be forced to be injected with cancer-causing chemicals and those
people who have already had vaccine reactions and disabilities will have their
lives put at risk.

Those on the committee are also on the boards of the drug companies who make
vaccines and so are profiting from their recommendations.

To safeguard our right to choose the healthcare for ourselves and our children,
Vaccination Awareness Network, the advocacy group for parents who don't
vaccinate, will be protesting against mandatory vaccination and conflict of

If you are a parent who doesn't vaccinate, if you would like to choose which
vaccines you have, if you or a loved one are vaccine injured, please come along
and show your support outside the Houses of Parliament, Westminster at 12 noon.

Babies and children are welcome.

Please contact Jo on 0870 444 0894 if you require more information.

In the UK it is the responsibility of the Joint Committee On Vaccination And Immunisation to ensure the safety of our vaccines yet the Chair Professor Andrew Hall said to me (Joanna Karpasea-Jones) at a Nuffield Bio Ethics meeting in 2006 that vaccines were their area of interest so it would be difficult to find anyone on the committee that wasn’t directly involved with vaccinations.  I have looked at their minutes held for subsequent committee meetings and found the following admitted conflicts of interest:

For tetanus vaccine:
Dr. Ray Borrow had interests with Sanofi Pasteur and GSK, manufacturer’s of the shot.

For Pneumococcal vaccine:
The following members declared interests in Sanofi Pasteur, Wyeth or GSK.
Professor Simon Kroll
Professor Jon Friedland
Professor David Goldblatt
Dr Syed Ahmed
Dr Ray Borrow
Dr Stephen Inglis
Mrs Pauline MacDonald
Ms Anne McGowan
Professor Paul Griffiths

For Chickenpox Vaccine:
The following member declared interests in Sanofi Pasteur or GSK.
Dr Ray Borrow
Professor Dr Paul Griffiths

For Pandemic Flu Vaccine:
The following members declared interests in Sanofi Pasteur, GSK, Baxter, Novartis, or Merck.
Professor Jon Friedland
Dr Syed Ahmed
Dr Ray Borrow
Dr Stephen Inglis
Mrs Pauline MacDonald
Professor David Goldblatt
Professor Paul Griffiths .

The majority of the committee members have ties to the vaccine manufacturer’s and current rules state that you only have to declare your interests if they are less than 12 months old.  If you did any dealings with a company prior to that, you don’t even have to mention it.
Quite a lot of them are paid by the vaccine manufacturers and there are some who act as speakers for them.
