NHS workers should be required by LAW to get Covid vaccine, says ex-Health Secretary Matt Hancock
The Sun says NHS workers should be legally forced to get Covid jabbed before the winter to avoid a crisis, former health secretary Matt Hancock said.
Mr Hancock warned ministers against delaying mandatory vaccines for nurses and doctors to safeguard vulnerable patients and avoid staff shortages.
It comes as the Government is under increasing pressure to change the law within weeks to require Covid jabs for England’s 1.45million NHS staff.
Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Mr Hancock said: “Having looked at all the evidence, I am convinced we must require vaccination for everyone who works not just in social care but the NHS — and get it in place as fast as possible.”
