A copy of a fake checklist has been in circulation, which schools and individuals have received from an unknown source, claiming to be from the NHS. This is not a legitimate document and it contains misleading and potentially dangerous misinformation.
It is important that parents and children are given accurate information from credible sources to help them make informed decisions about getting vaccinated.
A letter designed to look like an authentic vaccine consent checklist from Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) is a hoax and includes various pieces of misinformation.
What people are saying?
Daniel Toth-Nagy Guardian, I was a long time reader of your newspaper, but the only hoax is what you publish here. Have you reviewed the content of that consent form? Why you are not reporting it?!
Chris Duggan This misinformation is extremely worrying, potentially discouraging our young people from having the vaccine and causing a lot of stress for parents and families. There’s enough to deal with atm without this stupidity.
