THIS Morning psychologist Emma Kenny has slammed Good Morning Britain for discussing if the coronavirus vaccine should be mandatory.
The telly regular was unhappy with a Twitter poll asking viewers if they thought people should be forced to have the Covid jab once it's approved for use in the UK.
GMB's official account posted: "Following the news that a Covid-19 vaccine could be just around the corner, should the vaccine be mandatory?"
More than 40,000 people voted, with 64.4 per cent choosing 'no' and 35.6 per cent opting for 'yes'.
Emma responded: "Please do not even float this question. It’s not a responsible thing to debate.
"It inflates fear and I’m sorry giving Susanna and Piers talking points on this one simply isn’t ok."
The poll came as anti-vaxxers vowed to reject pharmaceutical giant Pfizer's breakthrough vaccine that could see a 90 per cent effective jab rolled out in the UK before Christmas.
Their position irked Piers Morgan, who said he will have the jab live on TV, and added that those who don't want the vaccine should be banned from flying and receiving NHS treatment if ill with the virus..
Yesterday Susanna Reid acted out the iconic orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally in excitement over the vaccine news.
Co-host Piers Morgan read a newspaper headline which simply stated "Yes! Yes! YES!" and asked producers to play the famous clip from the hit 1989 comedy where Meg Ryan's character fakes an orgasm in a cafe.
Unwilling to wait, an overjoyed Susanna burst into a racy impression, slamming her fists on the table as she screamed "Yes! Yes! Yes!"
A clearly flustered Piers exclaimed: "Oh Blimey! Are you alright Susanna?"
She then burst into giggles and added she was "very excited" about the prospect of a new vaccine.
But some at home didn't find it funny and complained about Susanna's early-morning enthusiasm while others joined in on the joke.
One said: "Thanks #gmb Family think I'm watching porn now."
Another Tweeted: "That scene is crass & seriously UNFUNNY!!"
While one wrote: "Can't concentrate on what Susanna's saying."
Boris Johnson announced on Monday night that the UK has stockpiled 40 million doses of the first Covid-19 jab – which requires two shots to work.
Pfizer revealed its vaccine was proven to be 90 per cent effective at preventing Covid – on what experts hailed a "great day for humanity".
It took just ten months for the Pfizer vaccine to be developed. In contrast, a traditional jab would take between ten to 15 years to develop.
Drug regulators must now wait for safety data out later this month before they can grant emergency approval for widespread use.
However, GMB show medic Dr Hilary Jones , 67, said: "It's not going to eradicate this virus from the face of the earth and I'll tell you why.
