who says the vaccines will definitely be free?
BAG does.

Die Covid-19-Impfung wird für die Bevölkerung gratis sein. Die Kosten für die Impfstoffe, die Impfung und das notwendige Material werden von Bund, Kantonen und der obligatorischen Krankenpflegeversicherung (OKP) getragen. Die Impfung ist von Franchise und Selbstbehalt befreit.

No gov can oblige people to vax, I think, unless they want to foot the secondary effects law suits. In CZ - they at 1st didn't want to vax the people who already got ill (and who wanted to be vaxed). But now they changed the approach, seeing how short the immunity can be and the reactions really individually different.

In terms of who wants to be vaxed, I think it is still 50/50 there.

Re: Covid Vaccine: Will you get it?

Apparently, a healthcare worker in Alaska recently had a severe allergic reaction to the Pfizer vaccine despite having no history of allergies. He or she required hospitalization after being administered with the allergy treatment epinephrine. Two similar cases had occurred in the UK.

I'm certainly not try to scare anyone with that or imply that I think people shouldn't be vaccinated, but before receiving the vaccine, I personally would make sure they have an EpiPen on hand.

It's normal that some people have allergic reactions to all vaccines. You just never hear about it.

"Rarely, the flu vaccine can cause a severe allergic reaction. Severe allergic reactions usually happen within a few hours of receiving the vaccine. "

I don't think Arte is showing The Constant Gardener by accident. It's on again at 1.30am.

It's not an accident. The author of the book on which the film was based, John Le Carre, died a week ago.

No ways. Not another vaccine to pollute my body. I will let my immune system fight it off naturally. What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.

Yeah, who needs all this modern medicine nonsense. 'Fighting things off naturally' has worked perfectly fine for humanity for millennia, right?

We already had the 2 UK mentioned - they have an extensive history of allergic reactions in both cases and 'got a rash' - hardly anything really to worry about.

There's always the extremely small chance for reaction with any vaccine (or over the counter meds in fact if you have a history of allergies) and that's why they ALWAYS have staff on standby, be that flu, MMR or any other jab when doing vaccination programmes. She may have not had a history in this case and that's your one in a million or so chance of a reaction right there.

Re: Covid Vaccine: Will you get it?

When I was getting weekly allergy jabs a couple of decades ago, they always had me wait an half hour afterwords to see if I had a reaction. I never did. I assume they will have epi-pens and adrenaline at hand.

How about taking it to protect others- especially those unable to take the vaccine?

All nonsense. First they create viruses in the lab, then they come up with vaccines for it. Big pharma business in making.

It is genuinely scary to think that despite such backwards and unscientific views, you likely had a good education and are possibly even raising children to believe that. I guess ultimately nature will take it's course one day against adults (and sadly potentially their innocent young families) that don't believe in vaccination.

I think you need to first go and read up to understand what a vaccine is.
