Agreed. Everyone should be required fill out an informed-consent form of at least 100 pages (hard copy, in triplicate, no carbon paper allowed!) before receiving the vaccine.

Now seriously.
  1. The vaccines are given with a proper purpose - the prevention of a deadly (~0.8% fatalities over the entire population) disease
  2. The vaccines were tested using standard protocols, and shown to be safe in the short run (a few months)
  3. From other vaccines, we know that the overwhelming majority of side-effects of occur in the first hours/days, with vanishingly few effects lasting beyond a month
  4. (3) appears to be the case also for these vaccines
  5. All of this information has been provided in all media - print newspapers, radio, TV, internet, ...
In other words, the vaccines appear to be just as safe as the flu vaccines which many of us get every year. Is Helsinki Committee approval required for those, as well?
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
