It's interesting how scientists are still working out the long term affects of covid 19 but already have a vacine.
If they don't fully understands the disease yet why would people want it injected in them in the form of anti boddies. Ide rather wait till more is known.
Some people are stating they have symptoms months after!!! [Link]

Well.. I mean they're not being injected with covid-19. Just a segment that means that the body can fight it and it can't propagate. It's probably best to lean towards scientific knowledge rather than scaremongering.

Also, long term symptoms are of course a consequence of getting covid-19 to begin with. If there is a 90%M of that not happening as result of a vaccine, I would think that's a good thing.

We don't always need to search for some unfounded, terrifying angle for something that is likely positive and that humanity will benefit from. We're in a pandemic. They're clearly not going to hang around for about 5 years, because the vaccine would be all but pointless then. Some groups are already at dire risk, so a vaccine is not some kind of unthinkable option. It's a rational one and as the months tick by, people will be able to make their own choices as and when it becomes available to them.

As a 40 year old the odds of me dying from covid is absolutely tiny. I don't want a rushed vacine injected in me, surely people have got to respect people with my view have a choice.

If you want it have it, just like the flu jab!! I don't hear people moaning at those who don't get the flu jab.

Above and beyond all else, it's of course POSITIVE that this vaccine appears to be so effective. It may well save millions of lives. If the safety results are equally positive and it's offered first and foremost to those at serious risk of covid anyway, then that would seem like a sensible way to move forward.

I fear that some have found themselves into such a nay saying space that they're almost annoyed at the apparent success at the vaccine. Of course if it had been ineffective then the approach would've been how people were fools for holding out hope for an effective vaccine to begin with. Sitting on the sidelines sniping at both efforts of individuals and the scientific community to make a meaningful difference to the trajectory of a pandemic.

I fully understand the 'wait and see' attitude, and would never support any effort to twist anyones arm to have a vaccine, but people should mentally be able to both hold concerns but also see that potentially this is a development that it to be applauded.


Not me. The only aggravation I’ll have is encountering those who say we should’ve done a New Zealand. I spoke to someone on Saturday morning before and they said we should have multiple lockdowns for another year or as long as it takes.

I'm with you on that. As much as we seek to protect people as risk, they also need to protect themselves. The first lockdown was understandable since covid was an unknown quality. This one, when businesses have already taken a monumental battering is concerning with its 'businesses shut - schools open' approach. My thought is, if it achieves little will they drag it on and on just to justify it..

Even though some understandably have concerns about the vaccine, I feel a certain relief in that it might at least shift the focus to vaccinating the at risk and letting the world get back to turning for the rest of us!

I don't feel that any vaccine should ever become "mandatory", it should always be up to the individual (or responsible adult, in those cases) as to what they want to put into their body.

That said, I think that any decent vaccine, and this shows a lot of promise, should be made available on the NHS for everyone deemed "at risk". Basically, if you got told to shield, you're top of the list for the vaccine if you want it. If you don't, then that's your choice. Same situation for this in regular contact with it like doctors or nurses, they don't have to have it, but the choice is theirs.

I know this virus does randomly kill otherwise healthy people, but that happens with other viruses and diseases too - they're called outliers and they happen. Your average person isn't likely to die from Covid-19, so why lock up most of the population if you've got a viable way to protect those most vulnerable?

Whilst I cannot see the vaccine being mandatory I do believe that you will struggle to access “normal” life without one, for example I can see this being required to travel, work, enter sports stadiums etc.

Are you concerned about the method of delivery of your suppository vaccine?
