Rejected petition No mandatory vaccines in the UK
Vaccines should remain the choice of individuals and parents. Making vaccines mandatory is removing basic human rights, freedom of choice and is unethical. All vaccines should be tested for the standard duration of 10-15 years to ensure the safety for those who choose to receive it.
There is currently no vaccine for Sars or Mers and any vaccine developed for Covid-19 could be potentially dangerous without long-term, extensive testing. The choice to receive it should remain with the individual.
This petition was rejected
Why was this petition rejected?
We can't publish petitions when the request is something that's already happening or something that has been announced since you started your petition.
We think your petition is covered by Government or Parliament action already. If you'd like something else, you could start a new petition clearly explaining what it is.
It is already against the law for people to be required to undergo medical treatment, including vaccinations. The Coronavirus Act 2020 has not changed this.
