Lincolnshire Vulnerable people want action from Boris Johnson
Boris Johnson who tonight addressed the public due to the increase in COVID cases has once again ignored the vulnerable people of Lincolnshire and the UK.
The Prime Minister who said boosters would be open to All adults before January amid Omicron ‘tidal wave’ failed to give instructions or mention vulnerable people.
In the televised address Boris Johnson said the over-18s in England will be able to book their boosters from tomorrow. However, with the booking system already crashing since he pleaded for people to book their booster, it is doubtful the booking system will be able to handle the rush to get boosted.
Mr. Johnson said: “No-one should be in any doubt: there is a tidal wave of Omicron coming, and I’m afraid it is now clear that two doses of vaccine are simply not enough to give the level of protection we all need.
“But the good news is that our scientists are confident that with a third dose – a booster dose – we can all bring our level of protection back up.”
Mr. Johnson said: “To hit the pace we need; we’ll need to match the NHS’s best vaccination day yet – and then beat it day after day.
“This will require an extraordinary effort.”
There was no mention of a lockdown or extra precautions being brought in to tackle the huge wave of new cases.
Some experts believe that another lockdown should be introduced while other experts believe a Plan C should be announced this week and a Plan D before or just after the new year.
Within minutes of Boris Johnson addressing the nation, we started to receive emails from our readers from Skegness, Grimsby, Cleethorpes, Gainsborough, Lincoln, Scunthorpe, and Boston who were deeply concerned.
These emails were from vulnerable people who had to previously shield due to their ill health, but now they are concerned they are being thrown to the wolves.
It seems the Government is ignoring the vulnerable people in the UK and as a result of this, it could result in those people losing their lives unless proper instruction is provided.
Sarah from Boston was one of the first people to email our team. She suffers from COPD and works in a factory and is very worried about the rise in COVID cases.
“I cannot believe that as a vulnerable people I am not being told what I should be doing. There was no mention of any special measures I should put in place. Once again Boris Johnson is playing with vulnerable people’s lives.”
Another vulnerable person from Scunthorpe wrote in and said he will be either going on the sick or handing in his notice at work.
Mark from Lincoln explained: “I work in a supermarket, and I am worried. I work in an environment where each day thousands of people come in. I don’t know if they have been vaccinated or not. At the moment around 30% of customers who come into my store don’t wear masks. I should be told to shield again.”
The feedback we are receiving from our vulnerable readers is that Boris Johnson is once again playing with fire. Just like his stay in go out, stay in, don’t go to work announcement, Boris Johnson has once again confused the nation.
