A judge in Uruguay has suspended Covid-19 vaccination in children under the age of 13 until certain conditions are met.
Judge Alejandro Recarey ordered “the immediate suspension of Covid-19 vaccinations in children under 13 years of age. Under conviction of contempt” as a result of a petition filed by Maximiliano Dentone, a lawyer representing a group of activists.
The ruling comes after Dentone said the government failed to reveal their contracts with Pfizer that he had previously requested.
Maximiliano Dentone join us on Monday, July 11 to share more about this case.
Conditions that must be met before Covid-19 injections are reinstated for children under the age of 13 include the following:
- The publishing of all purchase contracts for the injections, including any documents attached to them, especially those that “detail the compositions of the substances to be inoculated”.
- The preparation of a text to be given to guardians of children scheduled to be vaccinated that inform parents of:
- The composition of the injections
- The risks and benefits of the injections
- Clarification that the injections have an emergency, not definitive, authorization along with a description of the difference between the two
- The controls to which the State is obligated by art. 2 inc. 5 of Law No. 9202
Uruguay’s Ministry of Public Health has agreed to abide by the decision but can appeal within three days.
According to Uruguay government data, 44% of children between the ages of 5-11 and 75% of children between the ages of 12-14 have received two doses of the experimental Covid-19 injection.
The World Council for Health (WCH) has called for an immediate stop to “the manufacturing, distribution, administration, and promotion of” Covid-19 injections because they “violate basic principles of law.” In a previous statement, WCH highlighted the concerning risk of myocarditis in children. Using available official data, WCH’s recent pharmacovigilance report details evidence for the immediate halt and recall of Covid-19 injections, including the fact that more than 40,000 deaths have been linked to the experimental injections.
The World Council for Health stands with Maximiliano Dentone and the team of activists he represents. WCH encourages civil society groups around the world to mirror this successful strategy in order to protect and preserve the health and wellbeing of all children around the world.
