A BBC audience member has slammed mandatory vaccines, saying she would not “ask a fireman to show his Covid pass” before being rescued. Fears have been growing of a new wave of coronavirus cases over winter, prompting the possibility of the vaccine scheme being expanded to more hospitality and leisure venues. Health Secretary Sajid Javid this week confirmed NHS workers will need to be double-jabbed to continue working, with concerns Scotland might follow suit.

Speaking on BBC Debate Night, the audience member said: “I think it’s really important that we remember that we are very fortunate in this part of the world that we have democracy and that we have freedom of speech.

“And people should have a freedom of choice over whether they receive medical treatment or not.

“If I was unwell and in a hospital, it would not bother me. 

“If somebody wasn’t Covid vaccinated, I would just want to make sure that I was being cared for.”

She went on: “If I was in a building on fire I would not be asking the firemen before he rescued me.

“’Hang on a second there, mate. Have you got your Covid vaccination passport?’.

“I’ll be climbing onto him to get out of the building.

“So I think what worries me more than anything- Where does it stop?

 

“If we do bring it in up here-Where do we stop?”

She went on: “Do we then say, well, actually, teachers need to be double vaccinated as well, because they’re in touch every day with young people. 

“There, as already been said that my belief is the NHS is in a crisis, and it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

“And we need to encourage and praise our wonderful NHS staff that are working already.”

The audience member continued: “And not just the NHS. It’s the people that are on the lowest pay, working in residential and care homes, or looking after people in the community.

“We need to praise and encourage them, not drive them away by bringing in what I consider to be rules-based-on-what-medical-science.”

The Scottish Government has recorded more than 3,800 new cases and 19 deaths in the past 24 hours.

Deputy First Minister John Swinney said Wednesday that coronavirus rules may need to be tightened in order to prevent a return to lockdown.
