That's because, UK citizens are told, it's a matter of "public health and safety"; the only way to end the pandemic is for countries to vaccinate their way out of it.
Only, that's not working out so well, and the UK government's own data bear this out, which means that vaccination requirements the world over are doing nothing to end the vaccine, only civil liberties.
According to the government's most recent Vaccine Surveillance Report, cases involving the omicron variant have risen dramatically, even "as unadjusted vaccine effectiveness against infection (calculated from the raw data) plummets across all age groups in the month ending January 2, 2022," the Daily Sceptic reported.
The report added:
The (efficacy) revival in some age groups from the third doses has now been almost completely canceled out, as all age groups above 18 years go negative again. Those in their 40s hit a new low of minus-151% (negative vaccine effectiveness means the vaccinated are more likely to be infected than the unvaccinated; a vaccine effectiveness of minus-100% means the vaccinated are twice as likely to be infected as the unvaccinated).
There is a sharp drop for under-18s for the first time as well, with unadjusted vaccine effectiveness more than halving in a fortnight, collapsing from 79% to 38% (there was no report last week due to the Christmas holiday).
The dramatically declining vaccine efficacy rates shows, again, how pointless vaccine mandates, passports and other requirements are if the objective is to 'prevent the spread' of the virus. Clearly, per the UK government's own surveillance data, tripling and quadrupling down on previous vaccine requirements is not cutting it, and yet, like most other Western bureaucrats, those in the UK continue to pursue the same policies.
According to another chart posted by the Daily Sceptic, the proportions of infections among those who are vaccinated and unvaccinated for the aforementioned timeframe ("vaccinated" includes those who have gotten at least one dose; "vaccinated" in other charts means at least 14 days after a second dose): The chart shows that almost three-quarters (72 percent) of infections during the four-week reporting period were vaccinated (and of those, 65 percent were double- or triple-vaccinated), while just 22 percent, or fewer than one-quarter, were in the unvaccinated category. That means the claim that continued COVID-19 spread is due to the "unvaccinated" is an outright lie. In fact, it seems plain that the continued spread of the virus, at least in the UK, is an 'epidemic of the vaccinated.'
The omicron variant, while reportedly very easily spread, is far less potent and causes nowhere near the same lethality or hospitalization rates as previous variants. That said, the variant "has also had an impact on unadjusted vaccine effectiveness against hospitalization, with sharp declines occurring particularly in the younger age groups with lower booster coverage," the Daily Sceptic reported.
Notably, the data show that a decline among 18-29 year-olds is very pronounced, falling to just 50 percent, which means that double jabs are only cutting the risk of hospitalization by half "(though keep in mind this is unadjusted vaccine effectiveness based on raw data, not taking into account any potential confounders in either direction)," the outlet continued.
All of this comes after the UK government, last fall, changed the definition of "fully vaccinated" to include a booster jab.
“It’s very clear that getting three jabs, getting your booster, will become an important fact and it will make life easier for you in all sorts of ways,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson noted during a press conference in mid-November. “We will have to adjust our concept of what constitutes a full vaccination to take account of that, and I think that is increasingly obvious.”
No, what is "increasingly obvious" is that the vaccines are not effective at preventing the spread of COVID-19, as we were told they would be.
