is getting vaccinated a good idea?Watch
i am 99% sure i will have the covid vaccine whenever it is offered to me, as i am generally quite a hypochondriac and have been avoiding leaving the house for the past year due to a fear of catching covid or unknowingly passing it on, however everything in the news about the vaccine is beginning to worry me slightly.
i am starting to worry that i will develop a blood clot, or that it will affect my fertility in the future and that i won't be able to have children. of course i would rather avoid a serious case of covid, even if it did affect fertility i think it is perhaps a situation where the pros outweigh the cons, but the blood clotting link is concerning me. i know the chance of this side effect is very small but i'm really not sure i would want to take the AZ vaccine as it would give me a constant fear that something was wrong, and on top of this the risk of me developing a blood clot is slightly higher due to the contraception i'm on.
any advice/reassurance is welcome, thanks
My advice would be if you have had Covid-19 not to take the vaccine, but if not then go for it try to get an alternative 1 if at all possible.
