Unvaccinated Britons should be ‘paid a premium’ for NHS treatments, according to an irate caller.
A disgruntled caller suggested that the NHS charge Britons a higher fee for utilizing their services if they refuse to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
People who refuse the vaccine should be charged a premium for NHS treatment, according to an irate TalkRadio caller, because they are “more likely to need medical care.” It occurred as specialists warned that a new wave of coronavirus cases might erupt in England in the coming months. In the last seven days, over 260,000 people have tested positive for coronavirus across the country.
“People choose not to get the vaccine,” caller Steven claimed on TalkRadio.
“They are willing to incur the additional danger of needing more medical attention if they do contract the virus.
“As a result, if they do require additional care, they should pay a premium for it.”
“So why should people who have been vaccinated be penalized for having their taxes paid for the medical care of people who chose not to get the vaccine and chose to take the additional risk of needing medical care?”
“So you’re suggesting we should really find them, well not necessarily find them, but charge them a premium for NHS access if they’ve chosen not to have the vaccine?” questioned host Peter Cardwell.
“Is that what you’re saying?” says the narrator.
“Exactly,” said the caller. Some form of incentive.
“I’m referring to private medical insurance.” If you become ill, your insurance premium will rise.
“If you have private medical insurance, you can opt not to get the vaccine, but you’re more likely to receive medical care.”
“As a result, you’re more likely to have to increase your premium.”
“As a result, most people with private insurance will most likely choose to obtain the vaccine but avoid an increase in their premiums.”
Experts have cautioned that due to the long time it takes to inoculate children, England is exposed to a fresh increase in coronavirus cases.
Teachers and parents are believed to be unsure if the children require the immunization.
“I think the first reason is the messaging hasn’t been great in England,” Devi Sridhar, a professor of global public health at the University of Edinburgh, told the Telegraph. “I think a lot of parents and teachers are confused about whether their children genuinely need the vaccination.”
