NHS staff turning down Covid-19 jab ‘disappointing’, says minister, amid hesitancy among black, Filipino and Bangladeshi workers

The British environment secretary has bemoaned the decision of some National Health Service (NHS) staff not to get the Covid-19 vaccine, with those turning down the jab highest in ethnic minority groups.

“Obviously it is disappointing if people working in our NHS, who themselves in very small numbers, have decided not to have the vaccine,” Environment Secretary George Eustice told Sky News on Tuesday morning.

“We want to get maximum protection particularly for those vulnerable cohorts but also for those such as those working in the NHS who are particularly exposed, and the vast majority of them have taken up the vaccine.”

Amid discussion around whether employers should be able to mandate their employees to be vaccinated, Eustice suggested the NHS would not be forcing staff to get the jab despite being on the frontline of healthcare provision.

In late January, the board of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust reported that while overall 80 percent of its staff had been vaccinated, only a quarter of black-African and black-Caribbean staff had taken the jab. Rates were even lower among Filipino and Bangladeshi workers.

Director of workforce Daniel Waldron said that rates were lowest among Filipino staff who are employed in their thousands by the NHS after heavy recruitment campaigns in recent years.

Other hospital trust bosses in London told the Health Service Journal that they had encountered similar issues.

One said: “Most of our white staff have been vaccinated and few of our BAME staff have. This is a real concern given that the majority of our hands-on clinical staff are black.”

On Monday, it was reported that a vaccination centre had to close early on three days last week because of “really low patient uptake” in an east London borough. Forty-five percent of the area’s residents were considered non-white in the 2011 census.

As of Sunday, almost 12.3 million Britons have received at least their first Covid-19 jab.

    almost as if someone has tipped them off. War on whitey carries on unabated, world wide.

    There are deaths of medical workers being reported as COVID deaths. These could well be so-called ‘vaccine’ experimental gene therapy deaths but no mention in media. We know a nurse who was vaccinated and committed suicide three days later. We know another nurse who was often out with her son, now not been since her vaccine although she says she’s feeling better than she was. They need the medical workers to believe or the rest if us will see them running scared and join in. Once they’ve been jabbed they’re going to be reticent about the effects they are suffering, which helps the media to keep the truth away from the main population. The white population seems to believe in the system still as they’ve not been targeted by police for harassment, or faced with so much unemployment and seen gangs running their local streets unbothered by authority as long as they keep distributing drugs. The truth is in many cities the gangs have been raping and killing for years, but in nice comfortable shires where the TVs roll out their mush, the nonsense that the government is looking after you is still mostly believed. That belief is a death sentence for many. Just roll up your sleeve please while we smash your immune system to pieces. Thank you, Sir. We killed 120 million Africans doing this in the 1980s pumping AIDS in the Hepatitis B vaccine. Now immune system collapse is for everyone. Much fairer. Great to hear that some nurses are awake. If you are ever going to awaken now is the moment.

      Good comment Tap. I live in a rural majority white area, and perhaps don’t see the bigger picture where race is concerned.

    Tap’, I encountered these two short videos today. They’re about Indonesian murders under I think, the Suharto regime. Not far from the Philippines. I wonder if Gates and Fauci will ever be questioned.

    Indonesia is very close geographically to my wife’s hometown, Ian, but culturally it’s fortunately a million miles away. The Americans despatched millions of Filipinos in their war of conquest, mostly Moslems but not exclusively – about half the then population of the country was killed – not for nothing is that war called ‘the first Vietnam’. Mass murders of the British and Americans get covered up in the history books. But they happened frequently enough. Power is never a good guy. I find the Filipino culture one of the happiest in the world. As the tourism slogan says – ‘It’s more fun in the Philippines’. Indonesia is a Moslem people-crushing cultural environment. The Filipinos are also suppressed – by Christianity, but they maintain a surprising knowledge of the former real spiritual parameters of life from their pre-Christian existence, knowledge, incidentally, which also was held by King Izas (Jesus) who was crushed by the Romans and his knowledge destroyed, after his capture and imprisonment in Chester, in a specially built prison. If only today’s current tour guides of Roman Chester had an inkling of who actually came to their city! The fact that people’s connection to their own spirituality was severed so long ago, and replaced with religion and the enforced trusting of governments, makes everyone so vulnerable to the COVID scam and the coming massacre by vaccine (Gene ‘therapy’).

    They’re indeed very docile (I’m married to a Filipino), and it’s hopeless trying to wake her up. She looks at me like I’m crazy. I don’t even try anymore.
    What you’ve said explains perfectly what’s clearly going on in their minds and souls.
    They’re already totally enslaved and fully obedient – all behaving like elementary school children. Pathetic and infuriating to watch otherwise intelligent adults behaving like total morons.
    Klaus, Bill and Tony however, will no doubt be very proud of their success in training these terrified, gullible slaves in being so co-operative in helping them to prepare them for their impending extermination.
    Gates has commented many times on what he sees as the Philippines’ ‘population dilemma’.
    Just sickening! The most despicable excuse for a human being that Satan ever gave breath to. When will someone exterminate that REAL ‘deadly pathogen’, the real ‘existential threat’ to everyone residing on this Godforsaken planet?

    • Tapestry says:

      Alan, Filipinos are very good at appearing to obey – keeping face – but they strongly believe government is mostly corrupt, so in that way they are ahead mostly of typical British, European mentality. I guess like all the varying groups of humanity, it’s a mixed picture. The lockdown has resulted in millions of new babies in the Philippines. Stuck at home with no jobs, people are left with little else to do! Gaetz has created a much bigger problem for himself.
