Unvaccinated UK Health Workers Told They Will Be Discarded After the Winter Covid Season

Needed to combat the virus after which they can be sacrificed to Virus Taliban piety

UK gov’t admits it’s a lot better for COVID outcomes to have unvaccinated health workers than to not have them, but will be sacked for ostensible COVID purposes anyway 

Editor’s note: Will be sacked so as to not spread Covid when Covid is gone in the spring anyway, but while Covid is rampant in the winter they are clear to work in the hospital with the most frail. As always, Vaccine Talibanism makes total sense.


On November 9th, Health Secretary Sajid Javid announced that all frontline NHS staff must be double vaccinated by April 2022 or lose their jobs. In relaying this news, the BBC first explained the April deadline as being one that would allow staff “enough time” to get the jabs. This, of course, is nonsense: any adult who wants to get twice vaccinated has already had ample time to do so. Insofar as “enough time” means anything, it is a version of the parental ploy: “I am going to count to three, and if you don’t do what you are told by then, I will…”, the only difference being that the threat is not “send you to bed without any supper” but “sack you”.

The BBC soon replaced this lame explanation of the April deadline with a new one of breathtaking audacity. NHS staff had to be vaccinated against Covid, yes, but the deadline was delayed until April so that unvaccinated staff could be on hand to help cope with the winter pressure on the NHS; pressure that is anticipated as a result of the combined effects of Covid and flu. 

This second explanation provides a textbook example of doublethink, one that is as good, if not better, than the original illustration given by George Orwell. In 1984 doublethink allows the regime to shift at will between (1) a false account of reality that is held for ideological reasons, and (2) a true account of reality that is kept handy for practical purposes. Thus, it is explained that (1) The world is the centre of the universe with the sun and nearby stars going round it. However, for the purpose of navigating the oceans, (2) the earth orbits the sun and the stars are vastly distant. So it is with the compulsory vaccination, by April, of NHS staff.  First we have the false account. 

(1) Vaccination protects the recipient against acquiring and transmitting Covid. Therefore, in order not to spread Covid, NHS staff must be vaccinated. 

But for the practical purpose of dealing with the winter surge in hospitalisations – Covid included – there is a shift to the true account.  

(2) Vaccination does not, in fact, protect the recipient against acquiring and transmitting Covid. Therefore, unvaccinated NHS staff can perfectly well help deal with the anticipated winter surge without making things worse. 

When it comes to the spring, let us hope that, like the parent counting to three, the Government will find a way to back down on its threat (“One, Two, …Two-and-a-Half…”). But perhaps we do not need to worry about this too much. For if the Government does dismiss those who stubbornly remain unvaccinated, and then come the next winter the NHS finds itself short staffed, in accordance with the principles of doublethink, the Government can simply rehire them.

Everyone should quit enmasse on one day. Just quit. Tell them to shove it. Thats what I would do if I worked there.
