    No frontline staff who are not vaccinated can be let a mile near any person who is vulnerable

      “No frontline staff who are not vaccinated can be let a mile near any person who is vulnerable” eh, why not? You do understand that a vaccinated person can still contract and transmit the virus and that, for the first entire year of this pandemic all patients were being treated by unvaccinated staff, right? Might you just be a little too caught up in the emotion of it all and whipped up in this anti anti vaxxer hysteria being fuelled by the media?
