Bruce Cameron is appalled by a recent scaremongering claim that getting a Covid-19 vaccine will render life insurance policies null and void. 

The Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) issued a strong warning this week that people who spread false information about Covid-19 vaccine are committing a criminal offence. And it comes against the background of a growing third wave of the disease and the urgency to be inoculated.

This warning follows an appalling disinformation threat on social media which claimed that by getting the Covid-19 vaccine you will render any life insurance policies "null-and-void" because the vaccines are regarded as "experimental medicine".
