A paediatrician who co-wrote a letter questioning the messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine for children before its rollout was reported to the government disinformation unit.
In January, Westminster confirmed that it had monitored lockdown critics including Conservative MPs and journalists on social media platforms via its disinformation units after documents were obtained by the civil liberties group Big Brother Watch.
Dr. Ros Jones, a Retired Consultant Paediatrician who is part of HART, found that she had received unwarranted attention from the government.
HART is a group that was set up with doctors, academics, scientists, and more to share concerns about policy and guidance recommendations relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
‘Turning to Children as Fast as We Can’
In May 2021, Jones sent an open letter titled “Safety and Ethical Concerns Surrounding COVID-19 Vaccination in Children” to the UK’s top scientists in charge of the pandemic response.
It was sent to June Raine, CEO of the MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare Devices Regulatory Authority), Wei Shen Lim, chairman of the JCVI COVID-19 vaccines committee, Chris Whitty chief medical officer, and Patrick Vallance, who was at the time chief scientific officer.
The letter was co-signed by many scientists including Karol Sikora, one of the UK’s leading experts in cancer, and renowned oncologist and vaccine researcher Angus Dalgleish.
