Health Secretary Matt Hancock received his Covid-19 vaccine from England’s deputy chief medical officer Jonathan Van-Tam at the Science Museum in London earlier. Hancock called the experience “a privilege.”
A gleeful Hancock said he’d already booked in for his second dose, twelve weeks from today. A spokesperson for UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that No. 10 was unaware that Hancock would be getting his jab from Jonathan Van Tam.
Twitter is awash with rumours that Hancock didn’t have a real covid vaccine, but rather a placebo or saline solution. We’ll never know.
Others are questioning the speed with which Hancock received the jab. After all, it was only yesterday that he Tweeted that he’d received a text inviting him to book in for his vaccine. This morning he had it done. That is quick alright.
Yesterday, Van Tam and Hancock took part in a covid briefing at Downing Street. Van Tam said that while there is no longer any medical reason that people from different households can’t meet indoors or hug, they should refrain from doing so.
The media is wretched. One journalist (can’t remember who, they’re all worthless) had this exchange with JVT:
“So professor, is there any reason why people cannot meet up indoors and embrace?
“Great. So we can pop round our friends houses and give them a big old hug then?”
“I wouldn’t recommend it.”
I was once an atheist. Then I graduated to agnosticism. I’ve moved on again. Now I pray to God and Sonny Jesus every night, that these psychopaths will face justice in this life or the next.
