UK Gets Back To Normality: Ministers To Scrap Covid Vaccine Mandate For NHS Staff
SHARE

The UK is one of the nations that are doing their best to get back on track and to bring back normality following the terrible two tears of pandemic.

It’s been just revealed that in the UK, ministers have announced plans to scrap an order forcing all NHS staff to get vaccinated against Covid.

This move is extremely important because it will prevent an exodus of thousands of frontline health workers.

Health secretary drops essential statements 

Sajid Javid, the health secretary, confirmed the move in a statement to MPs on Monday evening. He made a lot of people happy and hopeful by ditching a policy that he had championed in spite of growing concern that it would endanger patient safety by triggering the loss of key personnel from the already understaffed health service.

The Guardian also revealed the fact that Javid also plans to remove immunization as a condition of working in care homes.

This is an approach that has already led to the loss of about 40,000 staff in that sector.

He told MPs the following:

“While vaccination remains our very best line of defence, I believe it is no longer proportionate to require vaccination as a condition of deployment by statute.”

He continued and said: 

“I will launch a consultation on ending vaccination as condition of deployment in health and all social care settings. Subject to the response and the will of this house, the government will revoke these regulations.”

It’s also important to mention the fact that NHS England immediately wrote to health service leaders and told them the following:

“This change in government policy means we request that employers do not serve notice of termination to employees affected by the vaccination as a condition of deployment regulations.”

Covid vaccines in the news

While more nations are doing their best to get back to normality and they are dropping vaccine mandates and more covid restrictions, the giant pharmaceutical company Pfizer is making great efforts to boost vaccination.

Earlier today, we revealed that Daily Mail notes that Pfizer and its partner, BioNTech, have officially submitted data to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to have its vaccine authorized for use in children aged six months to four years old.

This comes amidst a massive scandal triggered by a new scientific study that was published last month in Research Gate, which shows mind-blowing covid vaccine potential results.

Of course, this will turn out to be surrounded by tons of controversies, just like any other subject involving the covid vaccines and especially their potential side effects. 

Twitter is fuming, revealing data from the study. Check out our previous article in order to learn all the available data. 

Pfizer is involved in more scandals since the beginning of this pandemic – our publication has recently addressed that it’s been reported the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will have eight months — not the 75 years it requested — to release all documents related to the licensing of Pfizer’s Comirnaty covid vaccine.
