Informed Consent

by Abir Ballan | Informed consent is one of your basic human rights to freely accept (or not accept) a medical intervention, based on knowing the full risks, benefits, risks of not having it, and knowing your alternatives.

Be empowered by understanding your legal, medical and ethical rights. Know the true risks and benefits of taking the experimental Covid-19 vaccines.


  • Covid-19 vaccines are experimental gene-based therapeutics, marketed under Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA). They are not fully approved by any regulatory body and haven’t undergone the complete review process needed for full approval.
  • You have certain absolute rights: Informed Consent and Bodily Autonomy are two of them.
  • Informed consent is your voluntary agreement to a medical intervention following a clear and accurate understanding of its risks, benefits, the risks of not taking it and knowledge of alternative interventions.
  • Bodily autonomy is the right to make decisions pertaining to your body and health.
  • These rights must be upheld under all circumstances. Many official medical and ethical pacts attest to the sanctity of these rights.
