An NHS doctor has claimed that patients are refusing the American/German Pfizer-BioNTech injection to “wait for the English one” instead.
Doctor Paul Williams, who is also the former Labour MP for Stockton South, claimed: “Some local patients have turned down an offer this weekend of getting a Covid vaccine when they found out it was the Pfizer one. ‘I’ll wait for the English one.’”
“People at risk of death in the depths of a pandemic. A lesson that Nationalism has consequences,” he said, according to a Metro report from Thursday.
The United Kingdom’s priority phase of vaccinations includes the elderly, care home residents, frontline medical and care staff, and those with serious medical conditions.
The GP later clarified that vulnerable “nationalists” who refuse the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine would not be removed from the priority list, only that they will have to wait for the AstraZeneca vaccine to be available in their area.
