Date: 9th December 2022
Time: 0930 – 1030
Main Speakers: Ed Beever and Bruce Frew
An analysis of the potential issues that arise from a small, vocal, minority that identify the vaccination programme as part of a dangerous conspiracy. The anxieties to be considered on the basis that it may give rise to discrimination claims where there is a potential of protection of a philosophical belief; the scope to argue that a vaccination requirement is an unnecessary invasion of an individual’s Article 8 right to privacy (or Article 9 freedom of thought, conscience and religion) and finally what consideration must be given to the potential of an anti-vaxxer being a whistleblower.
