The issue involving mandatory covid vaccines has been debated for a while now and this subject has been triggering multiple controversies all over the world. 

UK debates mandatory covid vaccines 

According to the latest data, it’s been revealed that the UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid is “leaning towards” requiring staff in the National Health Service (NHS) to be vaccinated against Covid-19, he said just the other day. 

“Those fantastic people working in the NHS, they are naturally more vulnerable to being exposed to diseases and viruses, and of course that includes Covid.”

This is what Javid told British broadcaster Sky News.

“But, also, the people that they are looking after so well are naturally vulnerable. That is why they are at hospital, and it’s about giving them the protection they deserve too.”

CNN notes that there is a similar mandate that already exists for workers in the care sector, said Javid.

The same article notes that as of November 11, all care workers in England are required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

“There is the requirement in care system at the moment that you are vaccinated. And the vast, vast majority of people I speak to in the care sector, that is exactly what they want, because they know that it’s not just good for them but – most importantly – it’s important for the people that they are looking after so well,” said Javid.

As CNN noted, there is a final decision that still has to be made. Javid also added that 93-94% of NHS workers are already vaccinated.
He said that he hoped that people would do the right thing and get vaccinated. 

Vaccinated people’s death risks are evaluated

Not too long ago, we revealed that according to a new CDC study, people who received the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or J&J vaccines are less likely to die from non-COVID-related causes.

The study was led by Stanley Xu from Kaiser Permanente Southern California and took into account people who received the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
