The Constitutional Court has rejected an application for direct access related to a matter over Covid-19 vaccines being administered to children.
The court found that no case was made out for direct access.
The Hola Bon Renaissance Foundation had turned to the apex court in December arguing that those between the ages of 12 and 18 are unable to give informed consent due to the complicated nature of the scientific data available on vaccines. It further argued that the vaccines were still in a trial phase as people needed to report adverse effects.
Reacting to the rejection to hear the matter says it shows that the apex court is afraid. It added five international experts and affidavits from parents were part of its case.
The issue of Covid-19 vaccines and forcing them on people have been polarising in society. In recent months people have lost their jobs because they opted not to take the vaccine.
