Patsy Palmer has shared her thoughts on coronavirus, going on a rant about the new variants and vaccines for children. 

The former EastEnders star, 49, took to her Instagram story to write: ‘So sorry to hear the Indian variant that changed to Delta 457898654566 has now mutated into the Yorkshire variant and you will need to be poked every week for the rest of your life.

‘But you will never be allowed out unless you eat all your roast potatoes, and if you use gravy you will have to get on a train to a quarantine camp for 80 days until Fauci tells you you are safe.’

She added of US Covid-19 expert Dr Anthony Fauci: ‘He will be available for phone calls only.’

The mother of four also shared a clip of a debate about children being given the vaccine, with the hosts claiming America is ‘rushing’ into giving children the vaccine without knowing what it is ‘going to do in the long term’. 

Patsy, who played Bianca on the soap, added: ‘As a parent I have to share this. This is not ok!!!! It’s never been ok and never should be ok!

‘This goes way past arguing about individual choices as adults. Surely we can stand together on this.’

It was announced last week that the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine was approved for use in 12 to 15-year-olds in the UK after successful trials deemed it safe. 

Patsy’s posts about the pandemic didn’t end there, as she added: ‘We have all kinds of police now. We have the ‘don’t have your own views’ police, we have the ‘mask police’ [supermarket staff usually aged 16].

‘We have the ‘restaurant take out’ police [aged 16], we have the ‘hike’ police [mask awareness in open spaces with no-one else around], we have the ‘social media grammar & spelling’ police.

‘We have the ‘anyone that wanted a career in the force that now thinks they have the right to tell complete strangers what to do’. We then have the rebel people in authority telling kids that not talking to strangers is obviously so last season.

‘In fact, let strangers give you medical experiments, kids, without telling your parents. These are the most confusing type of police. They were supposed to be protecting our children from harm. Who do we go to for help with this crime?’

In May, the Department of Health and Social Care said that no firm decisions have yet been made on whether to roll out the vaccine to children.

It appears that any decision will be dependent on clinical trial results and advice from scientists.

The main reason why children may never be offered the vaccine is because the virus is seldom serious for them.
