For the urgent personal attention of: Emer Cooke, executive director of EMA

As physicians and scientists, we support in principle the use of new medical interventions that are appropriately developed and used after obtaining informed consent from the patient. This stance includes vaccines as well as therapeutics.

We note that a wide range of side effects have been reported following vaccination of previously healthy, younger people with the gene-based COVID-19 vaccines. In addition, there have been numerous media reports from around the world of nursing homes being infested with COVID-19 within days of vaccination of residents. While we recognise that these incidents may have been unfortunate coincidences in each case, we are concerned that the possible causes of illness and death in these circumstances have not been and are not being adequately investigated, especially since no autopsies have been performed.

In particular, we question whether cardinal questions about the safety of the vaccines were adequately addressed prior to their approval by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

It is with great urgency that we hereby call on the EMA to provide us with answers to the following questions - pdf
