Narrative associating immunization programs with “war crimes” resurfaces

Claims that the Israeli vaccination program is violating the Nuremberg Code have resurfaced in the last few weeks, after a lawsuit was filed against the Israel government for its COVID-19 vaccination program. The lawsuit was filed with the International Criminal Court (ICC). Many vaccine opponents are alleging the ICC “accepted” the claim, however officials at the ICC’s Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) have clarified they merely acknowledged receipt of the claim.
