Uk Court rules forced vaccination is in “best interest”

A man with severe learning difficulties should have a Covid-19 vaccine, despite his family’s objections, a judge ruled.

Specialists said the man, who is in his 30s, was “clinically vulnerable” and in a “priority group” for vaccination.

Judge Jonathan Butler agreed with NHS Tameside & Glossop Clinical Commissioning Group that vaccination was in his best interests.

He did not name the man in his written ruling, published on Friday.

A number of specialists involved in the man’s care all thought he should be vaccinated but his father claimed the vaccine had not been tested sufficiently and did not stop people contracting Covid-19.
