Jacqueline Jossa and Dan Osborne claim that Boris Johnson is ‘blackmailing people into having a jab’

Having made their thoughts on having a COVID-19 vaccine clear on their social media across the pandemic, Jacqueline Jossa and Dan Osborne were left raging at Boris Johnson’s latest announcement on Monday evening.

The Prime Minister has proposed that, from September, proof of having both vaccinations will be required for large-scale ticketed events, nightclubs, and potentially even some pubs.

The couple shared a tweet that compared the unvaccinated to paedophiles.

Anti-vaxxers: Having made their thoughts on having a COVID-19 vaccine clear on their social media across the pandemic, Jacqueline Jossa and Dan Osborne were left raging at Boris Johnson’s latest announcement on Monday evening

The tweet read: ‘How about passports and mandatory QR codes for pedophiles and rapists? Oh, that’s right. It goes against their human rights and it’s an invasion of their privacy. Pedophiles are safer than the unvaccinated!’ [sic]

Dan shared the tweet, adding: ‘Worlds a f***ing mess. Absolute joke!

‘Basically blackmailing people into having a jab if they really want life to go back to ‘normal’, even to go to nightclubs or most countries in the world on holiday…

‘Proper top class bulls***!’ [sic] 

Fuming: The couple shared a tweet that compared the unvaccinated to paedophiles

Dan shared the tweet, adding: ‘Worlds a f***ing mess. Absolute joke! Basically blackmailing people into having a jab if they really want life to go back to ‘normal’, even to go to nightclubs or most countries in the world on holiday… Proper top class bulls***!’ [sic]

His wife added: ‘Freedom? Really? World has gone mad!’

It’s unclear why the couple are so adamantly against the vaccine – which has been, at the time of writing, administered to 54.2 per cent of the UK’s population.

Public Health England  statistics demonstrate that two doses of the vaccine will help in preventing symptoms from the Delta variant by 79 per cent. Two doses are 96 per cent effective at preventing hospitalisations.

Yet Jacqueline and Dan have declared they won’t have the jab, nor will their children.

Dan previously claimed that coronavirus ‘is not dangerous enough to be forcing a vaccine on the world’ – despite the illness killing 4.1m globally, at the time of writing. 

Last month Dan declared his anti-vaxxer status in a bizarre rant to his 1.1 million Instagram followers. The former TOWIE star took to social media to claim that the COVID-19 crisis is ‘all about money’, despite the pandemic causing a global recession which is the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

The rant began when he traveled home from Portugal and filmed himself in his car heading back from the airport.

‘I’ve said it from day one. People are going to have a go at me, but the whole thing is about money. The whole damn thing. I’ve had hundreds, maybe thousands of messages about kids getting the vaccination. Personally that s**t isn’t even going in me – never mind my kids. People do your research, it’s not good!’ he raged. 

U Ok hun? Dan came out as an anti-vaxxer in a bizarre rant to his 1.1 million Instagram followers

Oh dear! The former TOWIE star took to social media to claim that the COVID-19 crisis is ‘all about money’, despite the pandemic causing a global recession which is the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression of the 1930s

On arriving home, the ex-Celebrity Big Brother contestant returned to his Instagram Stories, having clearly been met with a slew of outraged messages from fans slamming his anti-vaxxer stance.

He said: ‘People are going mad at me for talking bad about the vaccine. You guys are crazy!

‘All I’m saying is if there was a legitimate vaccine that actually works and is no harm to you, why would it not just be all the vulnerable people get the vaccine and that’s it.

Rant: He also claimed that coronavirus ‘is not dangerous enough to be forcing a vaccine on the world’ and that he won’t be getting the jab – and neither will his three young children

The rant began when he traveled home from Portugal where he said: ‘The whole thing is about money! The whole damn thing!’

‘Why would a 12-year-old kid need a vaccine. If all the vulnerable people had had it and they were safe, why would anyone else need it? You just wouldn’t because it’s a 99.6 percent chance that you’re going to be fine with COVID-19.

‘It’s not dangerous enough to be forcing it on the world. That to me is suspect!’

Dan was then seen later in the evening asking his followers to stop bombarding him with responses, clearly having faced a backlash from them.

He was seen drinking beer and eating a take-out to cheer himself up, adding that he was feeling ‘nervous’ after the barrage of comments he had been inundated with after his rant.

HOW LIKELY ARE YOU TO GET COVID-19 AFTER BEING FULLY VACCINATED?

So-called ‘breakthrough’ COVID-19 cases occur when people contract the disease 14 days or more after receiving their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine or the Johnson & Johnson one-shot jab.

Clinical trials have shown that Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine is 95% effective in preventing symptomatic disease and the Moderna vaccine is 94.5% effective.

Meanwhile, real-world data showed the Pfizer jab is 91% effective against all disease for at least six months and the Moderna vaccine is 90% effective.

This means that fully vaccinated people are between 90% and 95% less likely to develop COVID-19 than unvaccinated people.

In addition, Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine trials showed 72% efficacy in the U.S., meaning those who got the one-shot jab are 72% less likely to contract the disease.

When comparing fully vaccinated people who did and did not get sick, the risk is even lower.

The most recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data show that 10,262 of at least 133 million Americans who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 later contracted the disease.

This translates to 0.00716% of people who have completed their vaccine series have gone on to test positive.

It also represents the true odds of getting COVID-19 after full vaccination: less than 0.01%.

What’s more, fully vaccinated people who test positive have mild illnesses, and are very unlikely to be hospitalized or die.

The CDC states that 99.5% of all deaths occur in unvaccinated people.

That means, if the figure applies to the 3,165 Americans who’ve died in July 2021 so far – as of July 13 – about 3,150 deaths would be among unvaccinated people and 15 deaths among fully vaccinated people.
