London hospital boss says he may lose 1,000 staff over Covid vaccine mandate | Coronavirus | The Guardian (Me: steady on with mandate – health of the rest of staff and patients depends on compliance.)

About 10% of the 14,000 staff at King’s College hospital are yet to be fully vaccinated ahead of a mandate for all NHS staff who work directly with patients that comes into force on 1 April.

Losing more than 1,000 staff would be the most extreme outcome and there had been an increase in the number of people who still required vaccination coming forward, Kay said.

“I don’t want, at this stage, to predict or give any numbers. We’re having conversations with staff, line managers are having conversations with staff, we have a helpline,” he said. “Ultimately if individuals choose not to, it’s their choice, their personal choice.

  1. In Denmark people who are not vaccinated, have to test every second day for work. I personally would feel safer with unvaccinated people, who just tested negative, than with vaccinated people, who are not tested. The vaccinated are infecting each other merrily here.

  2. Denmark spends between 1 and 1,5 billion Danish Crowns per month on testing. That is also why there are so many incidences of positive tests, not that there are more sick people than in other countries. Not everybody with a positive test is actually sick or has symptoms, but they can infect others.
