Nope, no chance, done with vaccinations. Who knows what the long-term effects are, I don't have any trust.... I'll stay home and be antisocial as usual, even if I hate that life.

my mum chose not to but they booked her in for another appointment.
I'm not, I'm going anonymous for this because of backlash but it's literally a thread asking if I'm getting the vaccine or not and I'm not.

Oxford and AstraZeneca are the same thing.

I think a lot of the people who are refusing the vaccine don't actually know how statistics work.

I got AZ, so did my mum. My dad got Pfizer.

Hi! i have had both the first and the second covid vaccine. the only reason i have got them so early is because i happened to be at a gp office for work experience and a whole old peoples home that was schedule to arrive for the vaccine didn't attend so they had to frantically find people to take it because of its volatile condition. (has to be kept in special freezer and would have been thrown out otherwise.) i experienced minimal side affects but i will be honest and say that the day after the first and second injection my arm was very stiff and i had a bruise for a couple of days. i can only say from my experience but unless you have something that would stop you from taking regular vaccines or you really are super worried i would recommend just taking it.
(i recieved the pfizer one if you want to know)

Exactly, I think people are listening to the minority of the media which is being very negative and they don’t actually understand how the vaccine program is actually doing

Yep, that and the vast majority of people are absolutely fine. If you have a pre-existing condition that would make the vaccine difficult, you'd likely be in specialist care anyway - for example, I have an immune condition that causes various difficulties including in relation to vaccines, I just asked my allergist about their thoughts initially for the first dose, and was approved to go ahead for the second one recently despite strange side effects (because of my preexisting condition, which is rare, my reaction to AZ is also rare in the general population as a result). The risk of a reaction is smaller for me than getting COVID which could kill me (I am CEV).

People need to chill and speak to those involved directly with them in their health care for logical discussion on risks and benefits.

Finally I’m glad someone understands and surely you are a great example for most people (especially on this thread) due to your health conditions. Having the virus would be worse and fatal in some cases as opposed to having the vaccine.

Once all the old and vulnerable people have been vaccinated, I sincerely hope that they will be protected. But the most common reason that is touted for young and healthy people like me to have the vaccine is to protect the old and vulnerable... I can only assume that those people aren’t confident that vaccinated people are protected, which doesn’t fill me with confidence in the vaccine.
Secondly, I would like to observe the longer term impacts of the vaccine before I jump in. We are in the process of gathering data on any immediate effects, but the vaccine has not been in use long enough for us to know for certain if there are any long-term repercussions. Let’s hope there aren’t any, but I’m not going to gamble where my health is concerned. And no, that doesn’t make me an ‘anti-vaxxer’ - I have had every vaccine offered to me in the past.
Finally, I will not be coerced into having it in the hopes that the government will deign to give me conditional freedom. As I mentioned previously, once the old and vulnerable have been given protection, why can’t the rest of us make our own risk assessments?

Yeah, that and even if they're not at risk themselves, loved ones might be or strangers. Part of living in a society means we have to protect vulnerable members, especially with things like this.

Thank you so much, that’s what I’ve been trying to point out, what’s the point in protecting yourself from ‘potential’ danger from the vaccine if your loved ones, friends and vulnerable people around you are put in risk.

No worries, I've thought about this a lot over the last year or so, lol, so have like main points I think are important, even if some people don't. Spoke with various specialists of mine over it, particularly those directly involved in my immune condition.

Do feel kinda exasperated with some people, but it is what it is. Hope you're doing okay with everything, particularly in your line of work!

I’m glad to hear that. To be honest I do get frustrated with what some people come out with.
I’ve had the virus and I’m fine thankfully, but if only we can control it, then things will start to regain a bit of normality. I love my job, but Covid has made everything difficult, I wish people would understand what it’s like having to see how high of a risk the situation is, and how hard some of us try to tackle the situation.

side effects scare her.
What side effects? 600,000,000 doses have been given with no widespread side effects. The vaccine works. Very well.

I hope it wasn't too bad for you? I've not had it (thankfully), neither have my parents, but I know some people who have and some of them have had it badly. Grateful they've not passed away from it though, not everyone is that lucky.

Yeah, can't imagine how difficult it must be in front line jobs like yours. I hope your place of work is doing as much as they can to keep you guys safe.

Thankfully it has not been too bad at all, I feel very safe at work, and we are managing the situation as best we can. However everytime we try to move forward, cases start to rise and people have to self isolate so it is difficult especially as the NHS want to start doing routine treatment.

Yep. Can only speak for myself, but some of my care has been interrupted because of this, not as much as some other people, but enough to have significant negative effects. Granted I'm still having appointments over the phone/video, and go in in person when it's deemed urgent, but my health is still deteriorating unfortunately.

Such massive interruptions in general and this will continue until enough of the population is vaccinated.

If you ever need to chat or vent, feel free to send me a message. Stress must be quite high for you at times, so if I can help I'm all ears! :hugs: Will stop derailing the thread now with our chat!!

I read that for those who do not have the vaccine, they will be turned away from many places, I'm not sure how accurate that is though. But, I have had the first one, and the second one is in a couple of months.

I'm not getting it, neither are a large section of my family. It hasn't been tested with enough vigour as it should have and therefore I refuse to put it inside of my body.
Same, **** that
