New Zealand’s approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is being challenged in the High Court with a group of medical people and citizens arguing the legality of its rollout.

They claim the provisional consent given by the Health Minister means the vaccine should only be used on a restricted basis for a limited number of people – not for the entire rollout.

The Government has bought 10 million doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine – enough to vaccinate everyone in New Zealand.

Armed with signs and banners, supporters of Nga Kaitiaki Tuku Ihu Medical Society stood outside the High Court at Wellington on Wednesday to watch the legal challenge.

“It’s just amazing to show that people do care about freedom of speech,” lawyer Sue Gray said.

The High Court had to make a second court room available for the public to watch via video link.

Before the hearing began, court security warned them they were there to witness and watch and not to get involved.

With the rules set, the applicant’s lawyers argued the provisional consent given by the Health Minister only covers the vaccine’s use on a restricted basis for a limited number of patients – not the entire population.

“It has not been lawfully given because this particular medicine – this vaccine has been approved for those aged 16 and over,” lawyer Warren Pyke told the court.

But the Crown says the correct process was followed to grant a provisional consent.

“The respondent says this is part of the minister’s evaluative exercise rather than being a restriction,” Crown lawyer Jessica Gorman said.

The respondents are a long list of ministers and health officials including Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins is also a respondent and stands by the Government’s actions.

“We didn’t use an emergency approval process,” he told reporters on Wednesday. “I’m absolutely confident in the process we followed.

“I’m absolutely confident this is a safe vaccine.”

VAERS Reporting System

Port workers in Trieste and Genoa are likely to continue to stage sporadic protests, including blocking actions, at both ports as of Oct. 22. The purpose of the action is to pressure the Italian government to end mandatory Green Passes for all workers in Italy, a measure in place since Oct. 15; the Green Pass confirms the holder is vaccinated against, recently recovered from, or recently tested negative for COVID-19. As of Oct. 22, authorities have cleared protesters from port facilities in Genoa and Trieste; additionally, organizers in Trieste have significantly reduced protest activity pending talks with government officials scheduled for Oct. 23. Traffic flows at both ports have resumed, but residual disruptions and increased security measures are resulting in increased processing times. Union groups in Genoa have stated their intention to continue with strikes and sporadic blocking actions in the coming days. Organizers of the protests in Trieste are likely to resume actions at the port if the talks are deemed unsatisfactory. Future actions will result in increased disruptions to port operations, including general cargo and passenger ferry services. Protesters may block major routes leading to port facilities prompting transport disruptions in the surrounding area. Lingering shipping delays are likely following any protests as port authorities work to clear backlogs. Organizers and local authorities have canceled large protests planned in central Trieste Oct. 22-23 due to fears of attendance by violent anarchist groups; security services estimated up to 20,000 people could attend. Some activists may seek to attend these protests regardless. Further actions are likely in central Trieste in the coming days, particularly in Piazza Unita. Protests are also organized in various locations in central Genoa. Authorities will deploy additional police to monitor all actions; clashes between police and protesters are likely. Security services used riot control measures, including tear gas and water cannon, when clearing demonstrators at Trieste Port Oct. 18. Authorities are likely to use similar measures against non-compliant activists at future demonstrations in Trieste and Genoa.
