IS vaccine harassment acceptable in the absence of informed consent? An observant TCW reader spotted in the Sunday Times’s Coronavirus Update column this week a disturbing report of a pilot scheme in the Midlands which smacks of just such pressures being applied.
It said: ‘A project targeting people from ethnic minorities who had first refused to have the coronavirus vaccine has changed the minds of 80 per cent of those involved. In the pilot scheme in the Black Country and in west Birmingham, those who turned down the jab were called by their GP, then an ethnic minority peer and finally by the local public health team.’
Without any irony this was followed by a further report which blandly informed us that Stephanie Dubois, a British model, suffered a blood clot and died days after being given the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine in Cyprus.
Does the Sunday Times have no interest in the ruthless investigation and exposure these two casual reports demand? Oh for the paper’s late, great editor Harry Evans.
Please feel free to discuss this or anything else on your mind.
