The Government’s vaccines-only policy has changed to an infection-only policy, leaving us all completely at the mercy of this hazardous virus. Over 100 people a day are dying from Covid, not to mention the millions of us with long Covid and/or post-infection cardiac issues that are just biding their time. Repeat infections will only worsen our health and deepen our misery. New variants will render even limited post-infection immunity pointless.

Note that in Scotland, the offer of boosters (3rd vaccine dose) ends 31st March 2023, as does the winter booster programme for those who are eligible: https://nhsinform.scot/winter-vaccines.
Many scientists, including the members of Independent Sage, have already labelled the government’s policy as both unscientific and dangerous. 20% of the population have not been vaccinated at all and many others will have had no vaccination for over a year. Now the UK is going to be condemned to having the NHS repeatedly overwhelmed by waves after wave of infection, without any mitigations in place to lessen their impact.
At a time when the Chancellor and the government are concerned about the decreasing number of people in the workforce, this policy will lead to increasing sickness and further shortages in that workforce along with stress to a health system which can no longer cope.
Write your MP to demand that the UK government immediately reconsider this decision and offer Covid-19 boosters to all people in this country as long as the virus remains in circulation. This cannot be the final phase of the Covid-19 vaccine story in the United Kingdom!
