The former health secretary, who resigned after breaking coronavirusrules during an alleged affair with an aide, made the claim in an article describing opponents of vaccines as “blinkered and dangerous” and “miserable anti-scientific gloomsters”.
He added that anti-vaxxers were trying to stop the progress made over the last nine months and urged everybody who has not yet been vaccinated to “do the right thing and get the jab”.
“I’m incredibly grateful to each and every person who got the jab because they have played their part and made Covid so much easier to manage,” he wrote in the Mail on Sunday.
