Speak up about COVID Vaccine

I have not been very public about my views about the vaccine but in recent days, I have decided to speak up more.

I won't be taking the vaccine for the following reasons: 

  1. 1
    I have not been taking any western pharmaceutical drugs for more than 20 years. Not even panadol. When I get sick (fever or flu) I will take my high quality supplements, sleep, drink water and take plenty of rest. If I get a headache, I take my Amway Calcium supplements and it's gone after a while. I have been very lucky to say the least to have reasonably good health at my age.
  2. 2

    I understand that Covid is dangerous and not taking the vaccine may be seen as socially irresponsible. However, research has shown that taking the vaccine may still spread the virus and I may still become a carrier.

  3. 3
    I have read research on the mrNA vaccines. I don't like what I have read. I have also in my personal life known friends or friend's loved ones who have either been injured or died after they have taken the vaccine. It may or may not be due to the vaccine but I'm not going to take the chance.
  4. 4
    Vaccination is a deeply personal matter. I don't like that society would be divided into groups of the Have Vaccinated or the Have Nots.
  5. 5
    I also think that doctors and scientists should continue to speak up freely about this evolving topic. Lives are at stake and we cannot be afraid to rock the status quo boat. Science has always been about discovering the truth and the best step forward for humanity. We cannot afford to lose this.
  6. 6
    Anyway I won't be pressured into taking the vaccine and I'm aware that soon pressure may be increased or stepped up for more people to be vaccinated and I do not want it to affect me and I hope that there will never come a time where there will be compulsory vaccination. There is tons of research that shows that vaccination is not the only and best way forward.
    Even if you offer me $1 Million, $10 million or however much, I won't be taking the MrNa vaccine. And that is just me.
  7. 7
    I don't really subscribe to conspiracy theories. But I think in this day and age, with tons of information etc it is important to read and be responsible for our own lives, for the authorities to encourage healthy debate, for there not to be fake news spreading for all our sakes. And I stand for that.

Responsible and sensible news reporting and discussions because maybe covid won't kill us but fake news will. There is a lot of taboo surrounding discussion of vaccine and I think it is extremely unhealthy to shut down views which are different than our own.

And there are tons of people who will erroneously put two and two together and link things wrongly, whether it's vaccine related or not. Saying something is or is not linked to the vaccine is actually a very complex answer unless the person didn't even take the vaccine in the first place. I hope more people realise this and not jump to conclusions.

Read and be informed. All sides. Come to your own conclusions. Don't blame anyone, not even the authorities for what you want to do at the end of the day.

Stay safe and let's fight this virus together.
