Thousands join NHS staff to protest mandatory jabs

Thousands of people have protested in London against mandatory COVID vaccines for NHS staff ahead of the February deadline for the first dose.

Government regulations say staff in the health service must be fully jabbed by the 1st of April and there are concerns it could see 70,000 people lose their jobs.

The NHS says mandatory vaccination is vital but there are calls to delay that deadline, to prevent staff shortages.
