UK: The Great British Breakfast hosts were discussing whether foreign holidays should go ahead or not
Brits who have been double jabbed should enjoy more Covid freedoms – including international travel and avoiding isolating – said The Great British Breakfast hosts Darren McCaffrey and Kirsty Gallacher.
Discussing the UK’s vaccination programme on what was meant to be Freedom Day, the pair talked up the possiblity of a two-tier system whereby those who have the jab could enjoy more freedoms.
Political Editor Darren McCaffrey said: “We know the vaccines work, we know these are the ticket back to normality.
“If we get the figures on vaccinations up, if that’s the compromise and you’re not willing to get the vaccine, maybe you shouldn’t have as many freedoms if you’re going to hold us back?”
Co-host Kirsty Gallacher said she had changed her mind, initially thinking it was illiberal to differentiate between people who had a jab and those who had not.
She said: “I was against it, and actually now I feel that it’s the only way we’re going to be able to travel.”
It comes as more than one million Covid-19 jabs were booked in just two days after the NHS opened its vaccination programme to all remaining adults in England.
A total of 1,008,472 appointments were arranged over Friday and Saturday through the booking service, NHS England said – an average of more than 21,000 every hour, or six every second. The full figure is likely to be higher as it does not include appointments at local GP-led vaccination services or people getting the jab at walk-in centres.
The NHS has now administered around 62 million doses since Margaret Keenan became the first member of the public to get a jab on December 8.
