The issue is that people do not know statistics and read scientific papers. Few weeks ago was talking with my doctor and she said that people in the hospital are as follows, people vaccinated are mostly with hearth condition, lungs, kidney disease or other sickness like auto immune. There not many in the hospital that are vaccinated and have an underlying issue. People that are not vaccinated it does not matter ill or healthy they can get it really bad. My nephew is vaccinated and got covid but if he did notice that he was sniffling he would not never know it. Because he works in a hospital they know how and what.

You seem to me informed, level-headed and trustworthy here in your response. I have a strange feeling that you are not lying to me. Thank you for not talking down to me. I am actually less scared of getting a vax now and have made an appointment online to get one next Thursday, because of your post.

Why would i talk you down vaccination is personal, you need to make the choice. One advice if you have allergies please ask your doctor if you can take any vaccine or that you’ll need a specific one. A friend of mine needed from one company only because of allergies. One tip one hour before the shot if you may have it 1000mg paracetamol then 6 hours later 500mg and then 1000mg before sleep (only take this when you can handle this much paracetamol). The only thing i noticed was where they jabbed me a bit sensitive after a day nothing at all, not even a stiff arm.

What people forget is that vaccines are the only defense against viruses that really work in high percentage.

I unfortunately am unable to get it for the time being, for a couple of reasons. My immediate family has a general distrust of doctors – they're not antivax; I've been vax'd for other things before, and I explicitly asked to get some other vaccines in the future with no amount of blowback. Current COVID vaccines will also likely put me out of action for a time. Time that I need to be active to help the said immediate family with our job, which is quite low risk as far as exposure goes. Short of finding a substitute to help my family get paid, I'm not willing to put myself out of action that long while we're relying on each other to this degree.

I do actively want a COVID vaccine, though. When the time comes to get one, however, I'm not entirely sure which one's the best one for me...
