Sign Open Letter to Government:

"From Watchdog to Enabler?" Undertake urgent review into MHRA's approval of Covid vaccines

The MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Authority), which is responsible for the safety and efficacy of medicines used in the UK, announced that it has morphed “from Watchdog to Enabler.”
Would anyone be concerned if the Office for Nuclear Regulation, the Civil Aviation Authority or the Defence Safety Regulator made the same statement?
It has become clear during the Covid-19 pandemic that the MHRA has failed to meet its responsibilities in multiple ways, despite prior warnings of inadequate regulation published in Government reports.
This has resulted in harm to individuals, who are currently struggling to get recognition, treatment and compensation.
Everyone is invited to co-sign the Open Letter to Health Secretary Steve Barclay below. We will be delivering a hard copy in April.

The Open Letter

Open Letter to:
  • Steve Barclay, Secretary of State for Health & Social Care
  • cc Rishi Sunak, UK Prime Minister


We, the undersigned, have had increasing concerns over the poor record of the Covid-19 vaccines for both safety and efficacy.

Many of us have signed letters to the MHRA questioning various aspects, particularly regarding the use of these products in healthy children and have received no proper replies. The official response points to the ‘world class MHRA’, who can be trusted to have fully assessed that these vaccines are ‘Safe & Effective’ before providing any authorisation.

It has therefore been a revelation to read this detailed report of the inner workings of the UK’s regulatory authority.

The shortcomings outlined in the report, following on from the recent Cumberlege Report and coupled with the close relationship between the MHRA and the pharmaceutical industry, point to the need for an urgent reappraisal of the whole system of drug regulation.

The level of adverse events from the current vaccines, also requires urgent scrutiny.

We have no confidence in the process for ensuring ongoing safety of the Covid-19 vaccines and call for an immediate pause whilst an independent safety review is undertaken.
