The Telegraph is reporting this morning that it has seen leaked cabinet plans to legally mandate vaccines for care home staff in England.
The newspaper claims:
Leaked details of a paper submitted to the Covid-19 Operations Cabinet sub-committee last week show that the Prime Minister and Health Secretary have requested the change in law.
Ministers feel compelled to act amid alarm at the low take-up of vaccines among staff among staff in care homes, where many of those most at risk from the virus live.
If the law change is voted through, it is likely that the vast majority of the 1.5 million people who work in England’s adult social care sector would be legally bound to have a Covid vaccination.
The article goes on to claim that similar plans are being considered for some so-called frontline workers, such as people working on hospital wards, but that no decision on that has been taken yet.
The document seen by The Telegraph is entitled “Vaccination as a condition of deployment in adult social care and health settings.” A key line in it reads;
“The Prime Minister and the Secretary of State have discussed on several occasions the progress that is being made to vaccinate social care workers against Covid-19 and have agreed, in order to reach a position of much greater safety for care recipients, to put in place legislation to require vaccinations among the workforce.”
It couldn’t be any clearer. Not since the 19th century, when smallpox vaccines were mandated for newborn babies, has any UK government sought to legally mandate a vaccine.
200,000 NHS workers have indicated that they will not risk having an experimental mRNA vaccine. Millions of under-40’s are thought to be sceptical. This government plans to mandate the jab where it can and coerce everyone else.
