Iíve voted undecided as I donít like any vaccines, Iíll take my chances which % wise is low, Iím 54 ideal weight exercise 7 times a week, so if I get it Iíd be very unlucky

Now if you have to have the vaccine to go to the US then Iíd have it like a SHOT

I'm told this is because when my mum had my oldest sister (first child) she went for whatever the jabs were at the time and had a very bad reaction, nearly died, so my mum then said no to absolutely everything for all of us. I always remember going to the docs to ask about what jabs I needed for my honeymoon (dom rep) and they looked at me opened mouthed when I said I had none. it took about 10 mins to explain that none meant none!
There will always be some few who genuinely cannot or should not take a vaccine. It's to provide a herd immunity shield around such as these that the rest of us need to step up.

I voted undecided... but that is good as I was a definite no a month ago.

Problem is I have ankylosing spondylitis and I would want to know a bit more if people with this have had the vaccine and has any side effects since it is an auto immune disease...

... but I would maybe risk it as I really want things back to normal and if you NEED it for holidays then that will probably force my hand...

Copied from a friend, spot on. I wonder how many would change their minds if they were surrounded by it everyday at work?!

ďAnd for those who believe it is nothing more than a cold, I am so pleased you think that way as we are always looking for volunteers to help on our covid wards, simple jobs like fetching water, helping staff to doff their PPE and holding the iPad up for the families to say their goodbyes.
PPE is limited but that wonít be an issue as youíve survived a cold before and arenít over 80. All the best! ď

Now why would you think they would do that?. Your arm would have a few in there if itís a yearly jab.

I don't think they would but if people think that about Covid injection why not flu jab?

That has surprised me but it appears to be the general sentiment. I did a quick straw poll in the office today, 5 of us. 3 over 45s, 1 over 60 and a thirty something. 1 absolutely (me), 1 maybe (over 45) and 3 absolutely not. I have totally misjudged the feeling of a vaccine in the general population, and it saddens me.

Thalidomide is still used widely around the world for a number of conditions, but its use is controlled and not given to expectant mums.
