EastEnders viewers baffled by Covid jab gaffe in Karen Taylor anti-vax scene

EastEnders viewers were left perplexed as a scene during tonight's episode saw the characters discussing the Covid-19 vaccine, but none of them were wearing masks.

Karen, Patrick and Suki were speaking about the coronavirus while in the shop, but none of them were wearing face masks inside.

Viewers found it puzzling that EastEnders included the jab as part of the storyline, but didn't show the characters following the government guidelines.

One viewer tweeted: "They can mention the vaccines but they still don't wear masks or close businesses…"

While another wrote: "It's funny how this is the only soap not to use masks yet they are banging on about the vaccine!"

A third typed: "If you're that concerned about Covid, maybe show people actually wearing masks etc?"

"Vaccination conversation between Karen, Patrick and Suki in EastEnders with no one wearing a mask inside that shop. Either ignore the pandemic altogether or show its realities…", penned a fourth.
