Good Morning Britain is facing backlash on Twitter after asking followers whether unvaccinated people should be banned from public places.

The official social media account for the programme was slammed after the poll was posted online yesterday.

It asked: "Should the unvaccinated be banned from public places?"

Although some social media users tweeted their opinion, others questioned why the programmed had asked the "irresponsible" question.

Twitter account Big Brother Watch replied with: "This is irresponsible and discriminatory.

“The unvaccinated” will include all children, pregnant women, women trying to conceive, immunosuppressed people, people who decline for reasons of religion or conscience and more.

"No, we never allow their freedom to be taken."

Another angry user said: "No and you need to stop putting these ideas out there. I have a child with a cognitive disability who I refuse to vaccinate. And I won't let you bully's deny her the chance to live a free life to her maximum ability."

A third furious Twitter user wrote: "That's the most disgusting poll you've ever done, creating segregation, what about those that can't have the vaccine, this programme needs to be shut down."

The post has so far been retweeted nearly 1,000 times.

At the time of writing, 24.6% of people answered "Yes" and 75.4% answered "No."

This comes after the first batch of coronavirus vaccine was rolled out yesterday, marking a historical moment as those on the priority list were given the jab after nearly a year of the pandemic.

Last week it was revealed some Brits may be given an official ID card to prove they have had the coronavirus vaccine.

Yesterday a 90-year-old grandmother made history as the first patient to be given the Pfizer/BioNtech vaccine in the UK – as she urged as many Brits as possible to get the jab.
