Suspension of Covid-19 vaccines for minors in Uruguay criticized


Suspension of Covid-19 vaccines for minors in Uruguay criticized

Montevideo, Jul 8 (Prensa Latina) The president of the Broad Front, Fernando Pereira, described as a deep mistake a court ruling on the suspension of the administration of Covid-19 vaccines to children under 13 years of age.

Pereira criticized a decision by judge Alejandro Recarey, since immunization is a voluntary act in Uruguay, and conveyed his feelings to the President of the Republic, Luis Lacalle.

The senator Alejandro Sanchez, also from the Front, stated that “a public health policy cannot be kept from being carried out by the State.”

The deputy Cristina Lustemberg stated on Twitter that she is concerned with the deprivation of an especially vulnerable sector of the population of the right to vaccination against Covid-19 by a judge’s decision – framed in a clearly inadmissible action.

The magistrate first urged the Presidency, the Ministry of Public Health and the pharmaceutical company Pfizer to provide detailed information on the choice of the formula and the content of the contracts signed for application.

The sentence issued hours ago orders that the composition of the vaccines, their benefits, risks and adverse effects be exposed, and that the controls which the State is obliged to conduct are carriet out.

Regarding vaccination, the judge’s ruling must become effective within 24 hours, and for its part the MSP indicated that it will appeal the decision.
