A surgeon and professor at the University of Saskatchewan has been fired after he questioned giving COVID-19 vaccinations to children and calling for informed consent.
According to the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), Dr. Francis Christian has been suspended from all teaching responsibilities at the university and will lose his position by September.
The move came after Dr. Christian wrote a letter to fellow doctors that families and children should be aware of potential risks of COVID-19 vaccinations, noting that a patient should always be “fully aware of the risks of the medical intervention, the benefits of the intervention, and if any alternatives exist to the intervention.”
“This should apply particularly to a new vaccine that has never before been tried in humans… before the vaccine is rolled out to children, both children and parents must know the risks of m-RNA vaccines,” he wrote.
Dr. Christian spoke at a rally last week to share the same position. Christian, who says he is pro-vaccination, says currently available COVID-19 vaccination should not be issued to children as young as 12 like the province of Saskatchewan recommends.
Dr. Christian is fighting the action taken against him and is receiving help in his defense from the JCCF.
