this one for me, comes down to a trust issue.
basically, from being a canna partaker for 40 years ... all the politicians, corporations and medical associations that are (let's face it) pushing these vaccines, are also the very people who have told me all my life that canna is bad for me and made sure that i have been classed a criminal for most of my life, because i disagreed with them. it is also interesting to collect data from sources from the beginning of c19 until the present. it wasn't that long ago that australians were advised by the australian cmo that masks were unnecessary.
if i was travelling to a country with a high incidence of polio ... i would be getting a jab in a second. the risk of adverse effects from the vaccine would be worth it, as a great deal of scientific research has been done over a fair amount of time, for a valid decision to be made.
at this stage ... after weighing up the situation in oz ... i think the money would have been much better spent making more emergency beds (and medical equipment) available, staffed by fairly-paid medical staff.
both israel and the uk should provide some interesting data on questions like:
Does the vaccine prevent or slow-down the spread of c-19?
Do vaccinated people become asymptomatic spreaders?
How effective is the vaccine in real-life situations?
hopefully more data will be become available soon.
until it does, i have decided to wait and see how this pans out.
