Beverley Turner returns to This Morning, causing a stir with the question, “Why is she there?”
THIS MORNING, Beverly Turner and Dr. Nighat Arif appeared on the ITV show to discuss whether youngsters in the UK should be given the coronavirus vaccine.
On Tuesday’s This Morning, Eamonn Holmes and Rochelle Hume moderated a discussion about whether the UK should vaccinate healthy 12 to 15-year-olds. All 15 and 17-year-olds, as well as vulnerable 12- to 15-year-olds, can now get the Pfizer-BioTech vaccination. Dr. Nighat Arif strongly suggested that children have the Covid vaccine, while guest Beverly Turner was adamantly opposed. Viewers of This Morning were unimpressed with the argument and rushed to Twitter to express their displeasure.
“Why do you constantly inviting Beverley Turner on regarding COVID vaccinations?” one tweeted. I believe it is essential to represent both sides in a dispute, but she is always enraged when discussing her side of the argument, in contrast to the doctor, who was composed.”
“I’m not sure how that doctor kept his cool during that outburst. I’m not sure what I’m talking about. Another countered, “#ThisMorning.”
“#ThisMorning,” said a third. Why is it that the people who harp on about the vaccine’s dangerous side effects seem quite OK with the virus’s dangerous side effects?”
“@thismorning – why does Beverly Turner have to communicate her thoughts in such an angry and patronizing manner – I would be more willing to listen if she calmed down a bit and quit interrupting!” someone else said.
Another viewer, though, disagreed: “@beverleyturner Thank you so much for presenting our side of the story so beautifully on @thismorning this morning.”
“#ThisMorning I do wish you would have contrasting viewpoints from equally qualified people on crucial issues,” a sixth said.
“It’s very unjust to utilize a doctor advocating for children’s immunizations and a journalist advocating against them. There are lots of equally qualified individuals who hold alternative viewpoints.”
