Covid 19 immunisations - would you have it?

Just that really. If and when one becomes available, would you have it?

Taking into consideration the lack of testing time on side effects (I’m meaning years not weeks or months).

Also say if we are tested for immunity and had already had the virus. Would you still have an immunisation? Really interested to hear everyone’s view.

absolutely I would have it.
even if it's not tested as extensively as vaccines normally are, it will go through a rigorous testing regime.

In my line of work it’s pretty certain that we wouldn’t be able to work without it

Yes definitely

NewChapter11 Sat 04-Apr-20 17:40:43

Hell yes.

I’d walk over broken glass to hug my family again.

If the NHS tells me it's safe, then I'm having it.

Because I'm not arrogant enough to think I know better than the top medical professionals in the UK, with medical degrees, doctorates and 50 odd years research experience.

Yes. Herd immunity and all that.

Shit yea, only a moron would say no

DramaAlpaca Sat 04-Apr-20 17:44:59

Absolutely yes.

ChainsawBear Sat 04-Apr-20 17:45:20

I suspect I've already acquired immunity the oldfashioned way but if antibody testing proves me wrong, absolutely, assuming it's been approved for human usage.

Helpwithaversion Sat 04-Apr-20 17:46:32

Yes because even if it’s fast tracked I think enough vaccines have been made for other diseases that they know what is ok and what’s not ok so I wouldn’t be worried

WhenDoesTheWashingEnd Sat 04-Apr-20 17:47:26

Although I highly doubt any vaccine would be released without rigorous testing.

Giggorata Sat 04-Apr-20 17:50:05

This was asked last week.
Too right I would have the vaccine. Even if it all quietens down, there will still be some of the virus within the community and I’m still vulnerable.

Good Lord yes. Like a shot. (Geddit? 😁)

Ponoka7 Sat 04-Apr-20 17:52:17

I would.

I was reading up about chimpanzee adenovirus (which apparently is going to be a possibility) and that and other components are separately well trialled and tested. So although this will be new the ingredients etc won't be.

Toooldfornonsense Sat 04-Apr-20 17:53:21

Just to clarify, not against immunisation at all, I’m interested on opinions on rush tested immunisations. Seems like the majority are ok with it?

Of course I would.

teainthetardis Sat 04-Apr-20 17:54:26


Don’t understand people who saysl no

Madre1972 Sat 04-Apr-20 17:57:43

Yes absolutely I would. I’m genuinely terrified of getting it- having been seriously unwell with Swine flu many years ago and even a cold knocks me off my feet.

Toooldfornonsense Sat 04-Apr-20 17:59:20

@madre1972 after having the swine flu did you have the swine flu vaccine or wasn’t that necessary due to immunity? Genuinely interested. Thank you

@NiceLegsShameAboutTheFace why wouldn’t you? Just curious.
