A High Court judge has reserved his decision on temporarily removing custody of a baby, whose parents don't want blood from Covid-vaccinated donors used in his life saving surgery.
The parents say they won't permit the operation unless it uses blood from unvaccinated donors.
Herald reporter George Block says Paul White, Te Whatu Ora's lawyer told the court this is a matter of life and death.
"He said the survival of the baby who has suppression is dependent on the application for the guardianship transferred to the High Court being granted. And as expected, he said the safety of the vaccine has been established by the Court and shouldn't be re-litigated."
