Britain’s top counter-terrorism officer today called for a nationwide debate on the introduction of new laws to punish people who spread anti-vaccination conspiracy theories.
Met Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said that there should be a discussion about whether it is “the correct thing for society to allow” people to spread “misinformation that could cost people’s lives” as he responded to concern that false claims online could undermine the take up of Covid-19 vaccines.
Officials said that one reason for Mr Basu’s concern was that Islamist and far-Right groups were using false claims about coronavirus to radicalise followers.

But old people where i hail from line up for their flu shots each year and complain when other sods are ahead of them in the queue or get their letters first.
My bet is a load of them will want to take the vaccinations.
For the better or worse of the matter.
Especially the ones who trust their gooberment implicitly which is more than we imagine.
