More recent studies concerning the strength and longevity of natural immunity are coming to light. For me they greatly challenge the notion that everyone needs to get vaccinated. Many young people will have had Covid in the past year. Some will have been unaware of it given that 80% of cases show no symptoms but others will know they had it. Ideally you could get tested to determine if you've had it except that the government rather divisively instructed the public to "only get tested if you have symptoms".

However for those that know they've had it the great news is that the natural immunity you now have is strong and could last years, even decades according to the following articles. On that basis I can't see why those who have had Covid would opt for vaccination.

Immunity to the Coronavirus May Last Years, New Data Hint
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/17/h...-immunity.html

"How long might immunity to the coronavirus last? Years, maybe even decades, according to a new study — the most hopeful answer yet to a question that has shadowed plans for widespread vaccination.

Eight months after infection, most people who have recovered still have enough immune cells to fend off the virus and prevent illness, the new data show. A slow rate of decline in the short term suggests, happily, that these cells may persist in the body for a very, very long time to come.

The research, published online, has not been peer-reviewed nor published in a scientific journal. But it is the most comprehensive and long-ranging study of immune memory to the coronavirus to date.

“That amount of memory would likely prevent the vast majority of people from getting hospitalized disease, severe disease, for many years,” said Shane Crotty, a virologist at the La Jolla Institute of Immunology who co-led the new study."

people rarely die of mental health issues.
suicide is the biggest killer amongst men under 50, and that's only 50% of our population.

It's particularly bad news for the 40-49 cohort who would have been expecting to get vaccinated in late March/early April as vaccination centres have now been told not to offer vaccines to anyone under the age of 50 in April, unless they have underlying health issues.

However, the government have pointed out that we are still on track to vaccinate all adults in the UK by the end of July, thankfully that target has not been affected. It is also worth noting that 99% of covid deaths have occured in people in the top 9 priorty groups who are not affected by this temporary problem in supply.
