AN inquiry to focus solely on the safety of Covid-19 vaccines will not be opened, the UK Government has said.

Instead, Health Minister Caroline Johnson announced that vaccines will be reviewed as part of the wider UK inquiry into Covid-19, and urged people to get their winter booster, adding that the vaccines are safe.

Dr Johnson spoke during a Westminster Hall debate in parliament which was held in response to a petition calling for a public inquiry into the Covid vaccine safety, which has been signed more than 107,000 times, reports Sky News.

She said that as the government had already commissioned a public inquiry into the pandemic, the vaccines will become part of that.

She said: “There are no plans for an inquiry solely on vaccine safety.

“We are facing a tough winter ahead, and collectively we must do everything we can to protect those most vulnerable and to reduce pressure on the National Health Service.

“I would encourage everyone eligible to step forward for their COVID and flu vaccines as soon as they are available.”

Some MPs, including Scottish National Party MP Steven Bonnar, have praised the jab for “saving millions of lives” but also raised concerns about possible side effects, urging the government to conduct am “an immediate and complete scientific investigation”.

“There has been a significant increase in heart attacks and other related illnesses since the Covid-19 vaccinations started to be distributed in 2021,” he said.

He concluded by revealing he still planned to get his winter booster when called, saying they have been shown to be effective and “acceptably safe”.

Elsewhere, former Tory minister Sir Christopher Chope, who chairs the COVID-19 Vaccine Damage All-Party Parliamentary Group, says he agrees with “legitimate concerns” raised by the petition in relation to the “increasing volume of data relating to cardiovascular problems”.

The MP for Christchurch insisted that he is “not anti-vax” and has had the first two jabs, but believes that the “government seems to be in denial about the risks of these vaccines” and does not plan to get a booster.

Dr Johnson added: “There is no evidence that people are at an increased risk of cardiac arrest in the days and weeks following the vaccine, and the risk of getting myocarditis or pericarditis after the vaccine remains very low.”

      How can they still be saying they are safe when there is no longer term safety data available and never has been? How can they say they are safe when there have been huge numbers of adverse reactions, especially in young people? How can they say they are safe when they were never tested for use in pregnancy or for young children and now the incidiences of still births and miscarriag are soaring and fertiltiy rates around the world have plummeted.?
      How come they were never even tested to see if they prevented transmission but we were told categorically that we would be saving our grannies if we took the jab? These people need to stop lying.

        Totally agree! its crazy if you see Dr John Campbells latest videos he is now on the other side and is shocked by the Sudden Deaths by heart attacks which he also predicted from official UK data early this year. 2023 is going to go mental with deaths.

      THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!! so the UK government is ignoring the massive increase in Sudden Deaths even this month alone the figures are massively high. Heart Attacks are a direct result of having both vaccines and with more being touted OMG. The UK is now failing in its duty to investigate and protect the public from further mass side effects of these experimental vaccines.

      Please EWN keep up the good work by allowing FREE speech, open opinion and reporting on these matters. Thank you!
