The pharmaceutical companies are worried that because the refugees or migrants are not beholden to any territorial laws, they could technically sue if an adverse event occurred.
Titled, “Refugees lack COVID shots because drugmakers fear lawsuits – documents,” the Reuters piece explains, “Tens of millions of migrants may be denied COVID-19 vaccines from a global programme because some major manufacturers are worried about legal risks from harmful side effects, according to officials and internal documents from Gavi, the charity operating the programme.”
The United Nations admits that most countries are locked into contracts with the vaccine manufacturers that required immunity from any legal ramifications for potential negative health effects connected to the shots.
