Reports this morning suggest that the Mandatory Covid jabs for NHS and social care workers are set to be scrapped

Health Secretary Sajid Javid will meet fellow ministers on the Covid-Operations Cabinet committee to rubber stamp the decision on the about-turn.

The requirement for NHS workers was meant to come into force in April – making this Thursday, Feb 3, the last day on which staff could get their first jab in order to be fully vaccinated in time.

The move comes after warnings that the measures would lead to catastrophic staff shortages in the professions with The Royal College of Midwives warning the policy could have a “catastrophic impact” on maternity services

The Royal College of GPs and Royal College of Nursing called for the deadline to be delayed.
