Generic Discrimination on the Basis of Vaccination Status Letter
This is an easily-adaptable letter to a venue which you can use to refuse Covid-19 vaccinations as a condition of entry to venues in the United Kingdom. It is well-established at both common law and statute that no-one can be forced to take medical treatment in the UK and anyone doing so, or attempting to do so, exposes themselves to criminal and / or civil liability.
Detailed guidance notes also clearly guide you through adapting the letter to suit your needs. It includes potential space for appendices in case you have supporting documents you would like to include. These could be a statutory declaration, a letter of exemption from Covid-19 vaccination from a doctor, your medical history or any other relevant medical information.
An in-depth analysis of the relevant laws and legal principles has been conducted, as well as detailed exploration of UK Government regulations.
This is a letter template which is easily adaptable to suit your needs. No-one should feel forced or coerced into taking medical treatment they do not wish to take, or do not feel comfortable taking.
Therefore, this letter is so important.
Everything highlighted in yellow is adaptable; please insert your information where there are these highlighted sections.

We understand that it is stressful and upsetting being turned away from venues merely because you do not feel comfortable taking some treatment. Therefore, if you would like us to send the letter on your behalf to a venue, we will produce the letter on our own headed paper, mention that you are our client, and sign the letter as a firm. Usually, we will send the letter by email and post. Please note that a fee is charged for this service.
You can either choose to send the letter by email only, or by email and post. If you choose to send your letter by email and post, make sure you include the address of the recipient in the top left-hand corner of the letter, as the relevant highlighted section indicates.
Make sure you proofread your letter carefully before sending it to the recipient.
You may have important evidence (medical or otherwise) that you want to attach to this letter.
(1) A letter / medical history / recommendation from a relevant healthcare practitioner who has, in their reasonable medical opinion, come to the conclusion that it is not in your best interests to undergo any Covid-19 vaccinations.
(2) PROMIC health forms, e.g., a statutory declaration, health-care provider signed document, or self-declaration, which states that you cannot undergo Covid-19 vaccinations for medical reasons etc.
(3) The list is endless. Anything could potentially become an ‘Exhibit’.
Each item you include in your appendices is an ‘exhibit’. You can have an unlimited number of exhibits. When adding a new exhibit, make sure it appears in alphabetical order, e.g., Exhibit A, Exhibit B, Exhibit C, Exhibit D (and so on).
You can also choose to refer to some or all exhibits in the body of the letter (see the relevant highlighted sections).
