United Kingdom Does NOT Have Mandatory Vaccines. Vaccines Not Mandatory for School Entry

“Mandatory vaccination programmes were introduced in the United States in the 1960s; persuasion became obligation as vaccination was a condition of school entry. Vaccination is not mandatory in the UK and consent should always be obtained before immunisations are administered (Downie and Calman 1998).

The UK Department of Health (DOH) recommends that routine vaccines are given as detailed in the immunisation schedule presented by health visitors to all newborns. The DOH has set targets for vaccine uptake.  The aim is that by the age of two, 95 per cent. of children will be immunised against diphtheria, tetanus, polio, pertussis, Hib, measles, mumps and rubella. Similar schedules are in operation throughout the world

Vaccination has been a controversial subject in the UK since the Vaccination Act of 1853 made smallpox vaccination compulsory for all infants in the first three months of life and made defaulting parents liable to a fine or imprisonment. In 1877 author Lewis Carroll  was one of the first to question this approach to health care in his letters to the Eastbourne Chronicle. Over the years vaccination has spawned mass criticism of a public health policy now considered by many to be the most cost effective part of  health care.”

"I hired Phyllis Widman to assist me with the denial of my religious exemption for the COVID vaccine and employment termination by my employer. Phyllis was extremely knowledgeable and clearly explained to me about my legal rights and the legal process. I found her to be very efficient, organized, and passionate about her work and I especially liked that she really cared about me as a person and truly wanted what was best for me. I am very grateful to say, I did have a successful outcome. The religious exemption denial was overturned and I am back to work. I highly recommend Phyllis Widman." Kimberly R.
"Phyllis and her team took care of everything after my injury. When I was hurt, I was unsure who to speak to, as I'm quite young and typically "let things go." After a few recommendations and the first phone call I knew I was in good hands. I don't know where I'd be right now if I didn't make that simple first phone call. A thank you just isn't enough, but thank you so so much for what your firm does." Anonymous

Phyllis worked tirelessly to make sure that my concerns were addressed, and my needs were met. Phyllis is extremely personable, friendly, comforting and very relatable. She is so well versed in the field of vaccine injury law. I am extremely fortunate to have found Phyllis for my case and would highly recommend her to anyone in search of a truly compassionate professional." Kristen M.
