Would you turn down the vaccine?

Post by Jason » Sat Jan 09, 2021 5:29 pm

Saw this article today. A doctor has worryingly posted that some patients are turning down the Pfizer vaccine, saying that they want to wait instead for the English one.

Would you turn it down if offered?!

There are some idiots out there. If one wants the English vac, then that's fine as long as they pay for the vaccine, the private nurse, all the PPE required, and rental for the premises, out of their own pocket! Never happen, of course. Its like those campaigners against lockdown - if they catch covid, why should the NHS treat them? Again, pay for private health care.

I will happily take whichever vaccine I am offered when it gets to my turn.

The currently approved vaccines that are available in the UK have all been very carefully assessed and approved by regulators across most of the World, not one regulator has shown even a slight concern once all the data was fully assessed.

What also amazes me about this particular story is that if you were given the choice of which one to take then the Pfizer one would probably just edge it with me because although its only a slight difference it has the highest percentage of protection out of all of them.

Dean from Bromley doesn't think twice about snorting cocaine at weekends whilst out drinking. Dean also enjoys popping pills when he attends raves, which he purchases from a complete stranger at the venue. Asked if he would take the vaccine, Dean replied "No way, not a chance. You don't know what they put in these vaccines these days to control us".

Don't be like Dean. Hands , face, space.

Well Jason, I was watching a programme in the week and the manufacturer’s and the government have come to an agreement that if any side effects develop at a later date the manufacturers won’t be able to be sued. Has it been rushed?

So, is that a yes or no, or are you still thinking about it?

You're always going to get a difference of opinion on these things. I had my first dose three weeks ago and have been fine. A huge majority of my colleagues have also had it and are now starting to receive the second dose (I'm due mine on Monday).

Having survived 9 months of working with Covid positive patients and not, to my knowledge, developing the virus, I was unsure if I needed it. However, taking the vaccine to protect others, especially the vulnerable patients I work with, helped swing my decision. Regardless of where you work, protection of those around you should be at the forefront of your decision making. It's entirely your choice though. The joys of living in a democracy!

Probably the same kind of people who drive a German made Ford, have an iPhone made in China, likes Turkish kebabs and drinks Sol brewed in Mexico.

Not sure that the original story is actually 100% accurate to be honest, whatever the source may be.

I wonder which one was given to our Queen ? I bet they removed the nano-chips first.

I am a carrier of Epipens due to serious reaction to stings and bites causing anaphylaxis. I heard the news that I couldn't have the vaccine due to bad side effects but that has now apparently been overturned. It still does concern me that I could suffer some reaction as the vaccine has no history as it were.

But it will not stop me having it, when it's my turn!

I did read an article in the last few days from BBC North East & Cumbria that some people are ‘waiting for the English vaccine’.
