“Your job is to be a crap **** for two hours a day.”
Dan Wootton was slated online after he decided to attack the decision to keep teachers safe by vaccinating children.
The Daily Mail columnist, known for his controversial views, wrote daily mail piece With the headline: “Why are we stopping millions of children who are at almost no risk of Covid from hiring teachers after a year of doing almost nothing?”
Researcher Samuel Jenkinson jumped quickly, and tweeted in response: “Teaching online during a pandemic was often harder than in person.
“It’s also incredibly difficult to teach in person with masks and distancing measures and constant disruption afterwards.”
Then, taking aim at Wooten, he said: “Your job is to do shit for a few hours a day. sit down.”
Wooten has sparked further controversy throughout the pandemic by terming vaccine passports “coercive”, and even calling for a push back against “doomsday scientists” for ending sanctions during his GB News show.
This latest debate on jabs for children followed the advice of Professor Chris Whitty, the UK’s Chief Medical Officer and government advisor, that children aged 12 to 15 should now be offered the COVID vaccine.
Jabbing children have been a major source of controversy in recent months, especially since children are not expected to suffer the same severe COVID symptoms as adults if they test positive.
Critics claimed that the potential side effects of the vaccine could not outweigh the protection against COVID in children.
The debate then gained momentum when the Joint Committee on Immunization and Immunization – made up of the government’s top independent advisers – did not recommend forced introductions to people under the age of 16, on the grounds that they did not know enough about it. Data was not collected. long term results.
However, several other European countries have started vaccine programs for people under the age of 16 to reduce transmission throughout the population.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Whitty said that “the benefits substantially outweigh the risks”.
He and three other chief medical officers were recommending all four countries in the union offer the vaccine to people aged 12 to 15 – although the final decision lies with ministers.
