Covid vaccine squads could be sent to the homes of unvaccinated Britons, the UK government has warned.
The scheme to dispatch door-to-door teams to areas with low vaccine uptake was devised over the weekend by the National Health Service, the UK Department of Health and Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office.
The ambitious initiative is being promoted as a means of avoiding another unnecessary lockdown, and would involve vaccination teams conducting sweeps in rural areas and places with low vaccination rates.
In a comment to the Daily Mail supporting the invasive effort, one UK cabinet minister said, “I am all in favor of free choice but there comes a point when you cannot lock up 90 per cent of the country who are vaccinated for the ten per cent who refuse to be.”
“I think anything that encourages the vaccine-hesitant is sensible,” the government minion stated, adding, “The mood in the country is hardening against people who refuse to be vaccinated.”
The Mail reports a similar door-to-door program is already being piloted in the town of Ipswich and has resulted in 150 people getting jabbed.
“Downing Street sources said the aim is to expand this to the rest of the country and try to reach the estimated five million unvaccinated,” the Mail reports.
The Mirror reports that “While tens of millions of doses of the Covid vaccine have been administered in the UK, there are substantial numbers of people who are completely unvaccinated.”

The new door-to-door effort will no doubt further galvanize the tens of thousands of British activists who’ve been hitting the streets in recent weeks to protest lockdowns, vaccine mandates and Covid passports.
