Dame Esther Rantzen surprised GB News host Dan Wootton as she urged un-vaccinated elderly people not to seek NHS help, saying “it’s their choice” not to get jabbed. Dame Esther insisted people choosing not to get jabbed should not put the lives of NHS staff at risk if they become ill and need medical attention. The comments came after Sajid Javid hinted that older people will face restrictions on their freedoms if they choose not to have a coronavirus booster jab.

Dame Esther said: “If you expect nurses and doctors to look after you, you must protect them and you must make sure they can prioritise people..”

The host interjected: “So you would want to ban the unjabbed from being able to access health services?”

The journalist explained: “No, I’m saying you’ve got to make that decision yourself.

“It’s your choice.”

She went on: “If you decide that you don’t want a vaccine or a booster, then you can decide not to go to hospital however ill you get and that is your right.” 

Dan Wootton chipped in: “So you would leave the unjabbed at home to die if they had a heart attack if they suffered from a stroke.”

Dame Esther said: “That’s their choice. If they’re unjabbed. 

“If they take the decision, they’re not going to use the medical evidence.

“Follow the science as we say, recognized because what the boosters do is not only protect you, they protect other people because you transmit the infection far less.”

Mr Wootton said: “Although you can transmit even if you are triple jabbed.”

Sajid Javid has hinted that the Government is considering adopting rules that are similar to that in France, which will require a third dose in order to be classed as “fully vaccinated” on the country’s Covid health pass.

The Health Secretary told SKY news: “We know now that the vaccines do wane and it’s important that, where it’s necessary, that those people get a top-up.

“I think it’s something that we have to keep under review.

“I think, in due course, we will have to look at what constitutes vaccination, but at this point, the most important thing is that anyone that’s eligible gets out there and gets their booster.”
