UK officials believe the public is with them in their latest initiative in their war against the coronavirus.
And here we thought leeches and bloodletting was barbaric.
The Daily Mail reported:
Door-to-door teams armed with Covid jabs will be sent to the homes of unvaccinated Britons in plans being considered by Ministers to reach the estimated five million people yet to be inoculated.
Discussions between the Department of Health, NHS England and No 10 over the past week have looked at a nationwide drive to send vaccine teams to areas with low uptake rates as a crucial way to avoid lockdown and other restrictions.
It is also seen as a way to get jabs to rural areas or households where people cannot easily get to a vaccination centre.

According to the Mail on Sunday, UK authorities are considering the idea of sending nurses to people’s homes as a way to avoid new restrictive measures and to deliver vaccines to rural areas where vaccination centers might be less accessible.
The outlet provides a quote of an unnamed cabinet minister who claims that he supports anything that “encourages the vaccine-hesitant” and who believes that “the mood in the country is hardening against people who refuse to be vaccinated.”
The government has not responded to the reports that come ahead of the prime minister’s announcement on further Covid measures. Boris Johnson is expected to make a statement on Monday amid the fast spread of the Omicron variant, which has already prompted the reintroduction of some restrictions. More than 122,000 new Covid cases were reported in the UK on Friday alone – another daily record since the beginning of the pandemic.
