    Changes to Human Medicine Regulations to support the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines Archived Message

    Apologies if this has been posted already. I don't think the gov are exactly promoting this consulatation document, and when you read the introduction it's not really seeking responses from the public but from 'stakeholders'.

    Also from the introduction: "Effective COVID-19 vaccines will be the best way to deal with the pandemic." So that's decided then!

    The UK government, with the Minister of Health in Northern Ireland, is seeking views on proposed changes to the Human Medicine Regulations 2012.

    The consultation covers:

    - authorising temporary supply of an unlicensed product
    - civil liability and immunity
    - expanding the workforce eligible to administer vaccinations
    - promoting vaccines
    - making provisions for wholesale dealing of vaccines
