As far as I am aware, the oxford covid vaccine is a live vaccine. For me and my family this is a problem because my son (due to his illness) is not allowed to take a live vaccine or be near people who have taken a live vaccine.
Another issue for my son, currently there is a vaccine that is being tested for his illness. The Oxford covid vaccine and the aforementioned vaccine both share the same viral vector. This could mean that the vaccine for my son's illness may become ineffective if he takes the oxford covid vaccine.
However, there are other covid vaccines that do not pose the above problems. Even then I would prefer to avoid them because the long term effects are unknown.
So for now I will not be taking the vaccine, but maybe in the future I might change my mind depending on further information and data.
I think it goes without saying that most of the well-read folks are skeptical about any and all vaccines. The real question is, what if it's forced upon us? What are we supposed to do then? Like for instance, vaccination being required for travel? Even for Umrah and Hajj? Then what?
Maybe. I've already had covid so not in a rush to get a vaccine as i heard likelyhood of catching it twice is low. Also if most people get it then im safe anyway.
But i want to know what is the harm in getting it for those who decide to take it. Also as earlier post eluded too, you may not get a choice. Won't be surprised if you need it in order to travel, work, study, enter restaurants or public spaces...
Also out of curiosity what is main reason anti vaxxers don't want the injection. Is it harmful or will it giv govt too much info about us? I'm neither for or against but not sure what the prob is with it.
I think the main reason is because there has been no long term testing of the vaccine which would expose any long term adverse side effects. But I'm sure even after long term testing other excuses will arise.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
