Article explaining Dept Health and Social Security have now advised the government as to the lesser scientific necessity for the Covid vaccine mandate for health workers.
If any of you read my long posting a few days ago about this matter in regard to Dr James's video interview, then I made exactly this point. I suggested then that the Omicron variant had made the scientific (and political) case for the mandate much more debatable (Because almost everyone will have had Omicron by then and because the vaccine is not very good at reducing transmission in the first place). I also suggested, contrary to Dr James's more pessimistic projection, that there was a very good chance that the mandate will be withdrawn before it's due to be enforced. And to be honest, the Tory government will be more than happy to do this, one less problem and it does fit in conventiently this time, with their more libertarian ideals.
