View the updated Declaration here.

Consensus is clear among MDs and medical PhDs: following 20 months of exhaustive research, millions of patients treated, hundreds of clinical trials performed and scientific data shared worldwide, they conclude that healthy children and COVID recovered should be excluded from vaccine mandates and social restrictions. 

Physicians also recommend legislative and administrative action, to prevent disruption of physicians’ treatments, or putting healthy children or the COVID-recovered at further risk.

13,000 physicians and medical scientists recently published the Rome Covid Declaration, to alert citizens to the deadly consequences of disrupting life-saving treatment and suppressing open scientific discussion.

More recently, medical scientists and physicians were compelled to add two specific policy points (children and natural immunity) to their Declaration, after authorities proposed aggressive decisions to force healthy children to be vaccinated, without demonstrating any net benefit against the risk, and to impose increasingly draconian measures against already immune citizens.
