3PB’s specialist family law barrister, Lola-Rose Avery, pictured here, sees the courts likely to have to officiate in disputes arising from the UK Government approving COVID-19 vaccinations for children over the age of 5. In a highly-topical review of current case law and regulations, Lola-Rose looks at potential family law disputes between parents, grandparents and guardians over conflicting views about a child being given the vaccination.

Recent cases have established the specific considerations that the UK Courts will now consider when determining disputes over vaccinations of children generally. Lola-Rose takes a closer look at these, including the landmark Re H and M v H.

Lola-Rose advises that there is a high probability of further disagreements over the COVID-19 vaccination for children, with the UK now long past its peak and urges all family law specialists to make sure they are well-prepared to deal with such disputes.
