We are receiving a huge volume of emotive messages from family members worried about consenting to allow loved ones the Covid vaccination. Families are disputing just how safe the vaccination is and say are deliberating whether or not to allow vulnerable loved ones in care homes to have it. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable understand these are families opinions. We would like to make clear we also receive messages from families eager to consent for the COVID vaccination.https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccinations-and-care-homes-programme-launch

"I've just received a letter from my mum's care home asking for consent for the covid vaccine. I'm afraid I don't agree with her having it, as I feel it has been rushed. I've done quite a lot of reading up, including the article in the BMJ from September, where a vaccinologist has stated no governing body should pass the vaccine fit for use due to lack of testing. I intend to write back today, refusing consent. I'm really hoping it doesn't change anything for my mum. I have spoken to the manager about my concerns, and she seemed very understanding. Even saying that several members of staff have come to her refusing the vaccine. She said there's been no real guidance off the government. There has been no visiting since the end of August, not even window visits. Though they are building a visiting pod outside the home at the moment. It would be interesting to know how many other families refuse consent. I'm not anti-vaccine. I just feel there are too many unanswered questions." L.S.

'' I am a nurse and I totally agree with what you are doing. My mam is in a care home also and has recently recovered from COVID but even if she hadn't there is no way I would be agreeing to her having this vaccine. I won't be having it either. I get my flu jab which some people feel is hypocritical but I do my research and 100% won't be having this vaccine. Each to their own but anyone capable of researching anything, should do their research on this... its scary. K.R.

'' I received the same letter yesterday and I really don't like having to make this decision for my mum. I know life has to get back to normal but it me that has to live with this if she had any side affects and the fact that the pharmaceutical company won't be held liable. '' A.N.

''My mum is definitely not having it and I've made my feelings clear. I know some staff won't either. We have a right to refuse it and I know she wouldn't want it anyway, even if she had the capacity to give consent. B.P.

If you have a loved one in a care home and unsure about whether to consent for the COVID vaccine or if you are eager to allow a vaccine to be given, please get in touch - email us in confidence at ccftv.cares@gmail.com
