This letter outlined all the information we felt was necessary for a practitioner to discuss to ensure fully informed consent occurred. We were increasingly uncomfortable with the simplistic and facile advertising campaign that advised New Zealanders the vaccine was ‘safe and effective’.
This letter was sent to:
- Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister
- Ashley Bloomfield, Director General of Health
- Chris Hipkins, Minister for Covid
- Morag Mcdowell, Health & Disability Commissioner
- Peter Boshier, New Zealand Ombudsman
- Chris James, General Manager, Medsafe
- Medical Council of New Zealand
- Dental Council of New Zealand
- Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners
- Health & Disability Commission
- Office of the Ombudsman

Read: The Need for True Informed Consent – Open Letters from NZDSOS For Urgent Release
Please find attached our statements on informed consent, and the anticipated roll-out of Pfizer’s covid-19 vaccine as it particularly pertains to children. This email is being sent to significant stakeholders in politics, the media and health. Credible international reporting systems are showing incredible harm, effective treatments are being ignored to justify a worldwide medical experiment, and eminent medical authorities trying to raise alarm based on solid data are being censored, deplatformed and, in some cases, persecuted.
We wish to ensure, on record, you have been made aware of these issues and the important clinical and experimental data underpinning our concerns. This email and our statements will be on our public website at: https://nzdsos.com/
We are a growing group of doctors, dentists and medical scientists, some of whom have been signing letters of concern regarding the vaccine rollout, and sent to the Prime Minister, Director General of Health, some ministers, Medsafe and medical organisations from mid-April 2021 onwards. Our initial attempts to engage in debate and dialogue were met generally with silence, and we were quickly labelled anti-vaxxers by some in the media for questioning this particular vaccine, as it is unprecedentedly poorly tested and conservatively reported to have caused over 20 000 deaths by officially accepted reporting systems in the US and EU alone, by the most recent figures.
In anticipation of your proper attention.
