Yes. The vaccines reduce transmission so unless you can't have it on medical grounds, it's quite selfish to refuse it in my opinion. To be fair, I think you should be able to give a preference for which one to have at the same time. I wouldn't refuse the AZ one but I'd preferably choose the pfizer or moderna ones.

Yes,

As a healthcare student who handles some of the most vulnerable in society I feel its my moral duty to have it. And I've had every vaccine under the sun so why not add more.... I'd probaly be refused pateint access without it in the current climate.

I am however considering getting the alternative that will be offered to me instead of the AZ one. Not that I'll refuse having the AZ, just if there is a second option I'd rather have that as they are less controversial and have better efficacy rates anyway. Also seems side effects in general e.g. Headaches and fevers are less with other jabs.

Then, apart from the COVID vaccine, what's the reasoning for not wanting to get any more vaccines?

Yes, I care about my fellow citizens.
how tho? it doesn't stop you from getting infected. it's only supposed to make your symptoms less severe. and you can still infect others. so i don't see how vaccines supposedly protect others. it makes 0 sense to me

It seems to reduce transmissibility. However even with what we do know, less people in hospitals is less people blocking beds for those that need it especially those that need to use the NHS for something other than COVID.

they still won't use them for anything other than covid,everyone is dying from other stuff due to lack of treatment and most hospitals are empty. the whole thing is a scam. i mean, covid exists but there's much more to this whole thing.

In short, your infectious for a shorter period of time because you will be ready for it if you actually come into contact with the virus and could be sick for a significantly shorter period of time than without the vaccine meaning it makes you safer for society as a whole.

how do you know? because according to my super quick research, that's not what most sources say. some say 70 something. other sources just say 'by more than half'

Mix of personal preference, allergies, not keen on blood or needles.
I don't take painkillers, period delay medication or blood transfusions either.
Not a JW or religious.

absolutely. I want my freedom, I want freedom for everyone else, it's the smart thing to do dwhen it's possible.

I strongly dislike needles, but for the 2 minutes it'll all take, it's absolutely worth it. :yep:

Can someone please answer this question for me?
I can't find anything to tell me the answer so I'm hoping someone here might know it.
I've heard that the Covid-19 vaccine doesn't actually contain the virus however, I've also heard that it contains a "harmless part" of the virus. Does anyone know which one it is?

From my understanding (please don’t quote me on this), they have genetically edited a virus (not SARS COV-2) to contain the viral genetic code of SARS COV-2 in order to get it to get your immune system to produce an immune response to replicate the antibodies for SARS COV-2 without actually injecting you with an attenuated form of the virus. 🙂

Hence why you may have seen the term “gene editing” thrown around the internet whilst looking for it. 🙂

Wait, so it's not actually the current Covid?
