Boris Johnson says ‘anti-vaxxers are nuts’
Prime minister makes comments while promoting extension of free winter flu jabs
Boris Johnson has said people opposed to vaccinations are “nuts” as he promotes an expanded programme of flu jabs that ministers hope will ease pressure on the NHS if there is a second wave of coronavirus this winter.
Visiting a doctors’ surgery in London on Friday, the prime minister said to staff, according to Reuters: “There’s all these anti-vaxxers now. They are nuts, they are nuts.”
