James Whale has clashed with Kevin O’Sullivan on-air as he called him the “head of the anti-vaxxers at talkRADIO”. Kevin O’Sullivan responded by shutting him down, slamming: “You cannot just libel people”. The debate came after the Government accepted the advice from the independent experts at the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to expand the coronavirus booster programme to those aged 40-49.

Mr Whale said: “Antivaxxers are a thing of the past as far as I know.

“You’re the head of the antivaxxers at TalkRadio so I am leaving it all to you.”

But Mr O’Sullivan interjected: “I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I never said that.”

Mr Whale chipped in: “Of course you are.”

Mr. O’Sullivan said: “You know that you can’t just make false accusations.

You can’t just lie on air.

You’ll to get yourself sued. You might have known this by now. James.

“You can’t do it. You cannot just libel people.”

“It’s really unprofessional.”

Mr. O’Sullivan then turned his attention to the listeners before Mr Whale could respond: “James and Ash all night, he’ll take you through from 10pm until 1am.”

A total of 13,147,333 people in the UK have received a COVID-19 booster or third jab

In a speech to the NHS Providers annual conference, NHS England chief executive Amanda Pritchard said: “We had the latest advice yesterday from the JCVI on extending (boosters) to the over-40s, as well as giving second doses to 16 and 17-year-olds, and I think we can expect further expansions in the future.

“We are already thinking about how we can do annual booster vaccines if they are needed.”

Ms Pritchard urged people to take up vaccination invitations “as soon as possible” when called, highlighting that a third of people take between two and five weeks to come forward and book after they are contacted about a booster jab.
