Yes- to protect myself but most importantly to protect my family and other vulnerable people

I just got my invite today. I think it's silly that on the pamphlet attached they say they can't confirm how effective the vaccine is or how much it actuallt reduces the risk of infection and transmission - whereas on the news they're saying it's 75% effective. Not a good way to convince people

Yes - the benefits well outweigh the risks

Right now no because I am terrified of injections. However, I’m hoping to have at least the first one by September! Mind over matter

I do refuse to have the Astra Zeneca one though, someone at my mums work died from a blood clot after having it. I’m fat and on certain medications so already at a heightened risk

I'm getting my first dose on Sunday. I decided to have it because I have a feeling that the government will just make life difficult for those who won't get vaccinated, such as having to take covid tests frequently when travelling etc

Yeah because I don't want to risk my health or life from a preventable illness. Covid can still be spread through vaccinated people but the risk of serious illness/hospitalisation and death is reduced by 97%. That seems like a pretty good deal. And, if people are not being hospitalised due to covid, things like life-saving surgeries and medical treatments can happen without issue.
Also, I'm a female on birth control where the rate of blood clots is 1 in 10,000 as opposed to 1 in 3 million. The comparative risk is hella low.

Why would you not take it?

If you're under 40 the booking system will only allow you to book appointments for the Pfizer or Moderna! It won't show you any AZ ones. I had my injection the other day and the staff were really nice, they have a chat with you before they do it too which is a good opportunity to tell them you are scared of injections. They will have seen lots of others and know how to handle it. I went to a big vaccination centre and I get a bit fainty when having jabs so they gave it to me lying on a bed trolley and attendants came to chat with me before I was allowed to go. I also didn't feel it. Hope that reassures you!

Let me get this right; after your mother's friend was killed by this so-called 'vaccine' you still want to roll the dice with your health? I suppose you could say the same about COVID but, good luck.
You know what is more likely to give you a blood clot than the covid vaccine? covid.

No COVID-19 vaccines to date prevent communication of COVID-19, unfortunately.
It does reduce transmission. https://www.bmj.com/content/373/bmj.n1112

Yes, I've already had my first dose. I had covid in November last year and it made me unwell for many months, I am only just recovered now. If the vaccination can prevent me getting it again, or prevent someone else getting it then I will happily do so.

The appointment went very smoothly and I luckily had no side effects except for a sore arm. I had Pfizer.

No.
I've only had one vaccine in my life as a child for polio and I don't plan to have any more.
My parents were antivaxxers, as were my mother's religious family.

I've had both shots of the Astrazeneca. At the time of the first one the news about blood clots wasn't confirmed. I wouldn't have had the vaccine had I known that. I did try to have the second dose changed the Pfizer but they wouldn't allow mixing vaccines.

I had it mainly to reduce the risk of infecting my mum, who would certainly be doomed if I infected her.
