refusing COVID vaccineWatch
There is not enough research to say that this vaccine will make a difference, I will still be able to carry and transmit the virus to others and I can still be positive with COVID after I’ve had the vaccine. I don’t want something injected in me messing with my body that has not enough research into it
I think that there is a chance that some employers (e.g. hospitals) could make it compulsory in the future, just like medical schools currently require students to get vaccinated against Hep B and various other things. If this happens in the future then a) more time will have passed and more research will have been done and b) your employer would lay out what exemptions there are, if any. No point worrying about it now.
It’s also normal for medications to be prescribed before really long term studies. When we have something that will save lives now, we don’t say “let’s wait 10 years to test out all the possible side effects”.
I think it would be very irresponsible to refuse the vaccine when offered, but you do you. I had the Pfizer vaccine yesterday.
