PRESS REPORT

THE STATE MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OBLIGATORY VACCINATIONS!

The Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU) and Védegylet have turned to the faction leaders in a letter.

The HCLU and the Védegylet have written a public letter to the faction leaders of the parliamenary parties concerning the issue of obligatory vaccinations. The said NGOs expressed their concern with respect to the new regulations. As of October 30, 2005, the State ceased to have any duty to provide remedy for damages caused by complications arising as the result of obligatory vaccinations.

The so called „Medicine-law”, passed this past summer, repealed those sections of the public heatlh law effective as of October 30, 2005, that regulated the State’s obligatory responsibility to provide remedy in cases of any complications or death occurring as the result of obligatory vaccinations.

The HCLU and the Védegylet believe that the State must take responsibility in providing remedy for the various possible complications caused by obligatory vaccinations. The two NGOs point out that those parents who, for fear of the complications caused by the vaccinations, prevent the vaccination of their child face criminal liability. Therefore, the State that establishes criminal liability for parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated must assume responsibility for the remedy in cases of complications.

The „Medicine-law” also repealed the State’s responsibility to provide remedy for complications of clinical testing of products made for experimental purposes.

The HCLU and the Védegylet are of the opinion that would be unjustified for the State to deny responsibility in the above cases.
