Julia Hartley-Brewer erupted on talkRADIO this morning as she vented her fury that people who are refusing to take the vaccine are keeping the rest of the country in lockdown and slowing lockdown reopening. Speaking to Jeremy Brown, member of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, she demanded “don’t keep me locked in my home because they won’t take a vaccine!”. She added that it was peoples right to refuse the vaccine but that decision should not impact the rest of the country. Mr Brown insisted the issue was not as “black and white” andthat rules should change in accordance with vaccine takeup.
Hartley-Brewer said: “If they chose not to get the vaccination I absolutely endorse their right to do that.
“But why the rest of the country should have to be in lockdown because they chose not to get a vaccine that could protect them that’s entirely their choice.”
But she furiously exclaimed, “don’t keep me locked in my home because they won’t take a vaccine!” adding that “
Mr Brown suggested a “modulation” of social distancing which would see the rules change according with how many people were vaccinated but this would require further takeup of the vaccine.

He added: “People are scared of the vaccine they need to be reassured it isn’t dangerous, they need to fully understand why the vaccine isn’t a problem.
“But it takes time to persuade people to have vaccines sometimes.”
Despite his argument Hartley-Brewer fundamentally disagreed with the approach arguing it is not a fair one and keeps the rest of the country on standby.
But Mr Brown stressed that the issue was not “black and white” but rather “a grey situation”
