Top Sask. court dismisses father’s appeal against getting children COVID-19 vaccines – CBC

Father submitted unverified medical studies about vaccine efficacy

In a case between a separated couple, the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal has dismissed the father’s appeal to not get their young children vaccinated against COVID-19.

CBC News is not naming the couple, so as to not identify their children.

In December 2021, the mother filed an application for sole decision-making authority on COVID vaccination for her children.

The judge at the Court of Queen’s Bench in Estevan, Sask., found that the father “was opposed to the vaccinations on religious grounds” but granted the mother authority because it was in the “best interests of the children” to get vaccinated.

The father then appealed that decision. In his affidavit, he said the children had already been infected with COVID and therefore he personally believes they have natural immunity to the disease. He also submitted two unverified medical studies not supported by evidence about the efficacy of vaccines.
