Dr Hilary Jones issues 'telling off' to doctor refusing vaccine

Dr Hilary Jones has launched a furious response to a fellow doctor who refused the Covid vaccine.

Dr Steven James sparked fury among NHS staff for telling Health Secretary Sajid Javid that “the science isn’t strong enough” around vaccines.

He has refused to have a Covid jab because he has acquired enough antibodies having previously been infected with the virus.

However, Dr Hilary told Good Morning Britain this meant he had exposed more people to the potential of catching coronavirus.

He said the "vast majority" of doctors and scientists agree with mandatory vaccinations in the NHS.

He added: "By his own admission, he has antibodies, so at some point he has been in contact with coronavirus and has been capable of transmitting coronavirus to the sickest patients in society in intensive and critical care.

"Having not been vaccinated, he is likely to have a higher viral load when he's been infectious and to carry that virus for longer.

"All the science shows transmission in an unvaccinated person is likely to carry on for longer than it would in a vaccinated person.

"He talks about the risk to himself - there is an ethical duty for doctors under the GMT regulations in clinical diseases to immunise yourself to protect the risk to your patients and clearly this isn't happening here."

Richard Madeley told Dr James: "That was an effective telling off."

He added: "You have effectively put patients at risk."

Dr James responded: "I am not a fringe person. I am having an expression of my voice - a voice that hasn't been heard.

"I have got thousands and thousands of positive comments from people.

"Hundreds of doctors and nurses have contacted me to say 'thank you let's open this debate up'."
