Along with my wife going to Wetherby this Saturday . Slightly concerned that the booster jab is 12 weeks after the first jab. Have booked our summer holidays in July of this year. Might be a gamble, although if we aren’t back to some kind of normality by then we are up the creek without a paddle.

Been on the fence about this for some time, but there's been a lot of debate about anti-Vaxxers on Facebook lately. I am now coming forward to stand up and say I'm firmly in the anti-Vax camp. And I know most will be rolling their eyes at this now.

I have my reasons, like many anti-Vaxxers, but it's important that everyone approaches this sensitive topic armed with the information THEY know to be true. I know my truth and I have first hand experience that backs up my stance. I had a Vax once and it was the noisiest, worst vacuum cleaner ever. I will never buy one again. All these armchair experts have clearly never experienced the disappointment of having to go over the same piece of carpet again and again to pick up the same piece of fluff.

I am firmly in the shark camp now, and I will not be told otherwise !!!
It's a good job I read posts fully through as you were just about to get your ear bent :D

For any naysayers
Covid

Everyone has the right to refuse the offer of a covid vaccination,but why would you.?

Are you really willing to continue to be at risk ,or indeed infecting others that could include

your nearest and dearest.Do you really want to negate the trojan efforts by all involved

in this world leading roll out.

The more vaccine refusers the more this disease is perpetuated,and data is emerging

that the chance of being infected after being vaccinated is very slim indeed.

I implore all right minded people who are offered a jab

Do the right thing

ACCEPT IT AND HELP THE WORLD BEAT COVD-19
Cant wait for mine

I've not had the jab.
I am 68, and have had heart failure and kidney injury in the last 12 months. :cry:

But I live in Bridlington, where 95% of the population is older and even more decrepit than I am, so there's a bloody huge queue in front of me.
It's all relative. :)

Just thought I'd post something to lighten the mood Dave. In reality I truly can't wait to get the injection and I really can't understand why anyone would choose not to, not just for themselves but for their family, friends and neighbours.

A couple of my neighbours have already had their first jab and they are only a year or so older than me so hopefully it will be soon.

Had mine today. Thank you to NHS and volunteers at Tidworth Leisure Centre.
Superb organisation from arriving to leaving. Could not be faulted.

Is crazy they've pulled off 10 million already, in essentially a month given very little happened before Christmas. Was thinking I might be facing a couple months in the summer where I'd potentially be post anti bodies but pre vaccine but if they carry on at this rate I could well get my first vaccine dose before my antibodies wane.

I've had the AstraZeneca one, felt a bit under the weather for 12 hours afterwards and then as right as rain. Wife had the Pfizer one, no reaction at all apart from a sore arm for a couple of days.

I can understand some younger generation not wanting the jab as covid will probably not kill them or make them bad but as more research and results come in and hopefully the jab does stop you spreading the virus then it’s really important for every age group to get vaccinated. For the country as a whole.
