The owner says her decision is a duty of care
The UK vaccine roll out continues with booster jabs being approved ahead of winter, but opinion is still divided with many yet to receive a first dose.
While the UK has rejected the introduction of a vaccine passport, many Brits who have escaped for a summer break have found it a requirement in many EU countries to gather in public places.
But the owner of a countryside holiday retreat in UK has gone against the tide banning all visitors who have been vaccinated against coronavirus.
Blaeneinion eco-retreat in Wales has announced it will only welcome unvaccinated guests with owner Sharon Girardi calling the vaccine “experimental”.
She decided on the ban out of a “duty of care” to her family and guests and had received an “overwhelming outpouring of love and support from like-minded souls”.
A public notice read: “With great sadness we have made the decision that we will be unable to welcome folk on site that are ‘vaccinated’ with the experimental CV19 jab.”
Blaeneinion is a conservation project set in 75 acres of land located at the head of Artists Valley.
Miss Girardi said: “We have honoured all previous bookings regardless of visitors’ beliefs on vaccination.
“There are many people with the same views that I are cautious about the experimental nature of the injections. They are grateful to have somewhere to go.”
“I would like to point people to the MHRA website to see the side effects of the vaccine,” she added.
Over 44 million people in the UK are now fully vaccinated against coronavirus, according to figures published on Wednesday (September 15).
Clinical trials have shown the Covid-19 vaccine to be safe and effective, providing immunity against the virus.
A notice on the resort’s website states that it is now fully booked until the end of September.
