After making their thoughts about having a COVID-19 vaccine clear on their social media during the pandemic, Jacqueline Jossa and Dan Osborne remained furious about Boris Johnson’s latest announcement on Monday night.
The Prime Minister has proposed that from September, proof of both vaccinations will be required for large-scale ticketed events, nightclubs and possibly even some pubs.
The couple shared a tweet comparing the unvaccinated to pedophiles.
Anti-vaxxers: Jacqueline Jossa and Dan Osborne, after making their thoughts about having a COVID-19 vaccine clear on their social media during the pandemic, remained furious about Boris Johnson’s latest announcement on Monday night
The tweet read: ‘What about passports and mandatory QR codes for pedophiles and rapists? Oh that’s right. It is against their human rights and it is an invasion of their privacy. Pedophiles are safer than unvaccinated ones!’ [sic]
Dan shared the tweet, adding: “Worlds bewildering mess. Absolute joke!
“Basically blackmailing people to get a shot if they really want life to get ‘normal’ again, even to go to nightclubs or most countries in the world on vacation…
‘Truly top bulls***!’ [sic]
Fuming: The couple shared a tweet comparing the unvaccinated to pedophiles
Dan shared the tweet, adding: “Worlds bewildering mess. Absolute joke! Basically blackmailing people into getting a shot if they really want life to go back to ‘normal’, even to go to nightclubs or most countries in the world on vacation… Real top class bulls***!’ [sic]
His wife added: ‘Freedom? Really? The world has gone mad!’
It’s unclear why the couple are so adamantly against the vaccine – which at the time of writing has been administered to 54.2 per cent of the UK population.
Statistics from Public Health England show that two doses of the vaccine will help prevent symptoms of the Delta variant by 79 percent. Two doses are 96 percent effective in preventing hospitalizations.
Still, Jacqueline and Dan have stated that they will not get the shot, and neither will their children.

Dan previously claimed that coronavirus is “not dangerous enough to force a vaccine on the world” — despite the disease that has killed 4.1 million worldwide, at the time of writing.
Last month, Dan declared his anti-vaxxer status to his 1.1 million Instagram followers in a bizarre diatribe. The former TOWIE star took to social media to claim that the COVID-19 crisis is “all about money,” despite the pandemic that sparked a global recession, the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression of the 1930s.
The tirade started when he was traveling home from Portugal and filming himself in his car on his way back from the airport.
“I’ve said it from day one. People will try it against me, but it’s all about money. The whole damn thing. I’ve had hundreds, maybe thousands of messages about children getting the vaccine. Personally, that shit doesn’t even go into me – let alone my kids. People do your research, it’s not good!’ he raged.
You Ok them? Dan came out as an anti-vaxxer in a bizarre diatribe against his 1.1 million Instagram followers
Oh dear! The former TOWIE star took to social media to claim that the COVID-19 crisis is ‘all about money’, despite the pandemic that sparked a global recession, the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression of the 1930s
Upon returning home, the ex-Celebrity Big Brother contestant returned to his Instagram Stories, having obviously received a slew of outraged messages from fans disapproving of his anti-vaxxer stance.
He said: ‘People get mad at me for talking badly about the vaccine. You are crazy!
“I’m just saying that if there was a legitimate vaccine that actually works and doesn’t harm you, then why not just all vulnerable people get the vaccine and that’s it.
Rant: He also claimed the coronavirus is ‘not dangerous enough to force a vaccine on the world’ and he won’t get the shot – and neither will his three young children
The tirade started when he traveled home from Portugal, where he said, ‘It’s all about money! The whole damn thing!’
‘Why would a 12-year-old child need a vaccine? If all the vulnerable people had it and they were safe, why would anyone else need it? You just wouldn’t because it’s a 99.6 percent chance that COVID-19 will be fine.
“It’s not dangerous enough to force it on the world. That’s suspicious to me!’
Dan was seen later in the evening asking his followers to stop bombarding him with comments, obviously with a backlash from them.
He was seen drinking beer and eating takeout to cheer himself up, adding that he was feeling “nervous” after the barrage of comments he was inundated with following his tirade.
HOW LIKELY TO GET COVID-19 AFTER FULL VACCINATION?
So-called “breakthrough” COVID-19 cases occur when people contract the disease 14 days or more after receiving their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine or the single injection of Johnson & Johnson.
Clinical studies have shown that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is 95% effective in preventing symptomatic diseases and the Moderna vaccine is 94.5% effective.
Meanwhile, real-world data showed that the Pfizer shot is 91% effective against all diseases for at least six months and the Moderna vaccine is 90% effective.
This means that fully vaccinated people are between 90% and 95% less likely to develop COVID-19 than unvaccinated people.
In addition, Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine trials showed 72% efficacy in the US, meaning those who received the single shot are 72% less likely to contract the disease.
When comparing fully vaccinated people who did and did not get sick, the risk is even lower.
The most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that 10,262 of at least 133 million Americans who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 later contracted the disease.
This translates to 0.00716% of people who completed their vaccine series went on to test positive.
It also represents the actual chance of getting COVID-19 after full vaccination: less than 0.01%.
In addition, fully vaccinated people who test positive have mild illnesses and are very unlikely to be hospitalized or die.
The CDC states that 99.5% of all deaths occur in unvaccinated people.
That means if the figure applies to the 3,165 Americans who have died so far in July 2021 — as of July 13 — there would be about 3,150 deaths among unvaccinated people and 15 deaths among fully vaccinated people.
