UK To Make Vaccines MANDATORY For Health Workers

The UK government will soon force health workers in care homes to take the coronavirus vaccine, a leaked document has suggested.

In the wake of low numbers of care workers taking the shot, the government is looking to make it compulsory for all those who work in adult care homes.

In London, only a quarter of staff who work in such facilities have opted to take the shot, while the number is closer to half in other parts of the country, according to NHS figures.

The London Telegraph reports that in response, the government submitted a paper to the Covid-19 Operations Cabinet sub-committee last week suggesting mandatory vaccines for such workers.

There are approximately 1.5 million people working in the sector in the UK. They would all be required to take the vaccine or face losing their jobs.

Owen Shroyer guest hosts The Alex Jones Show and takes a caller who tells the story of his friend who developed Bell’s Palsy after taking the COVID shot.

The paper, written by the Department of Health and Social Care is titled ‘Vaccination as a condition of deployment in adult social care and health setting’, and notes that the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) suggests that 80% of workers need to be vaccinated for care homes to be deemed safe.

It reads “The Prime Minister and the Secretary of State [for Health] 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.”

The paper also notes that any mandate for vaccines among care workers could trigger an ‘exodus’ or workers, and could even lead to many human rights lawsuits. 

The government has consistently said that it will not make vaccines mandatory in the UK, however this leak is at odds with that pledge.
