If I had a pound for every time I said “they’re laughing in our faces” in the past eighteen months, I’d be loaded. This morning, Adam Finn, who sits on the Joint Committee on Vaccination & Immunisation, told the BBC that the ability of the jabs and boosters to prevent the recipient from catching covid or passing it on is, “modest.”
Finn was appearing on BBC Breakfast to discuss the rise in covid case numbers and the impact it’s having on the sacred National Health Service. NHS bosses have urged the government to trigger Plan B.
Plan B, according to Health Secretary Sajid Javid, would see mask wearing in public places mandated, working from home encouraged again and even the introduction of vaccine passports.
96 million covid jabs have been administered in the UK to date. Do you remember when the previous Health Secretary Matt Hancock cried “15 million jabs to freedom?” I said it was bollox then. I was right. This never ends until we end it.
Adam Finn told the BBC that the jabs and boosters have a “modest” effect on catching covid and transmission. He then said:
“So, if we want to see figures going back down and we want to reverse the current trend which is up, we’re gonna have to do more than that and it really is time that everyone got the message that they can’t just go back to normal if they want to avoid further restrictions later in the year.”
Have you got Adam Finn’s message? Jabs, more jabs and booster jabs will not be enough. You must embrace the new normal, to build back better in the wake of the pandemic.
Mask wearing, social distancing, restrictions on free movement, stop work orders and health passports were never meant to be temporary. As I said, it only ends when we say, “enough now.”
“If we want to reverse the current trend, we need to do more than that”
