NEVER before in my lifetime have I witnessed such a buzz of excitement and celebration played out for the arrival of a new vaccine, isn’t it the most bizarre thing ever?
But has the 24/7 manipulation of public behaviour using fear and applied psychology techniques worked upon the UK population?
Time to take a closer look.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock has told Sky News that the UK was the first country in the world to have a “clinically authorised vaccine”. Britain has become the first county to approve the Covid-19 vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech, paving the way for vaccination to start next week.
He added: “This is fantastic news. The MHRA, the fiercely independent regulator, has clinically authorised the vaccine for rollout. The NHS stands ready to make that happen.”
An Express Online article states…..
“A worrying new survey has found that a considerable percentage of UK based people would not have a coronavirus vaccine if one was made available.
The result is particularly worrying given that scientists say that between 70%-90% of the population will have to get the new vaccine for it to be effective in stopping the spread of COVID-19.
Professor Paul Hunter, a Professor of Medicine at the University of East Anglia, stated The figures suggesting many people might refuse a vaccine are depressing, and actually incredibly selfish.
“There is a great deal of misinformation on the internet, and the risks of vaccines have been maliciously overestimated.”
“If we get an effective vaccine, and almost everyone takes it up, overnight all the restrictions can stop and life will return to normal like it was before March, with no social distancing or restrictions.”
This sentiment was echoed by Oxford Professor Sir John who also predicted life will return to “normal” by spring following the vaccine breakthrough.
And yet that statement is widely contradicted by Kate Bingham the Chair of Patrick Vallance’s UK Vaccine Taskforce she states in the British Medical Journal
The first generation of vaccines is likely to be imperfect, and we should be prepared that they might not prevent infection but rather reduce symptoms and, even then, might not work for everyone or for long.” Their effectiveness is likely to be limited.
So who is telling the truth? And what happens if the voluntary take up is too low?
Coronavirus vaccine: Can you REFUSE to get COVID-19 vaccine?
This is a very important question a little while ago I downloaded a PDF of a UK Parliamentary Committee Paper entitled Compulsory Vaccination for Covid-19 and Human Rights law this has now been deleted. This is attached in full below.
Lots of speculation and hype surround this experimental rushed to market vaccine, a vast amount of money has been spent from the public purse and a lot of political capital is at stake.
- Why was this paper removed from the UK Parliament Committee website?
- Will we be able to refuse to take the Covid-19 vaccine or will it be made mandatory?
I do not have the answers to these questions – all I can say is watch this space!
