What was claimed
The government is bringing in a law that means unlicensed, untested vaccines can be given to people and no one is liable if they go wrong.
This is not correct. The government was holding a consultation on whether it should change rules around unlicensed vaccines. Unlicensed is not the same as untested, and the manufacturer would still be liable if the product didn’t meet safety standards or is defective. Any vaccine given to the public will have to go through several stages of testing, regardless of this consultation.
