UK: NHS vaccine mandate “no longer proportionate”
The UK Health Minister, Sajid Javid, has announced plans to scrap an order forcing all NHS staff in England to get vaccinated against Covid, in a U-turn that will prevent an exodus of many thousands of frontline health workers.
Javid also plans to remove immunisation as a condition of working in care homes, an approach that has already led to the loss of about 40,000 staff in that sector.
