As the Covid-19 virus was never really an issue in Thailand, over 99% of people who do get infected survive, with the latest sthdies showing up to 97% of those infected are asymptomatic, and other new studies showing possible immune response to the Covid-19 virus from previous exposure to common cold corona viruses, and finally that any available vaccine has been rushed and most "first wave" vaccines have limited efficacy...for all these reasons I'll not rush out and get the vaccine if it should become available.

After watching the video on youtube by Dr Carrie Madej named 'Urgent Information on Covid Vaccine" and just recently hearing that the pharmaceutical companies are pushing for a new law that anyone who

Yes....but I want the forehead sticker that certifies me as a "Covid-Free-Farang" and gives me a 30% discount on Thai Airways flights

You do understand that chimpanzees are a different species to humans, so what infects them is less likely to infect us, don't you?

 

This particular vaccine construct was chosen precisely because it can't cause an infection in humans - so far it has been used in clinical trials of vaccines for at least ten different diseases involving thousands of people over a period of around a decade and it has never been found to cause any serious side effects. Its safety record is firmly established.

The bats or whatever exotic animal the Chinese were munching on were a different species to humans,.......but the disease had little problem infecting humans.

I don't believe in vaccination.

Refused my first vaccination (TB) aged 13, only had one since then.

Been everywhere in the world, caught nothing worth worrying about.

Hardly ever catch flu, but oddly my vaccinated friends seem to often catch it.

But how about tropical disease, you refuse also vaccination?

That is not wise.

the advantage is the same as with other vaccines when the so called important people and jobs get it first administered.

 

Makes them actually the real test cases. Same as we have seen with other prevention vaccines or medicines. 

 

When the common people get the vaccine administered this is in a stage that the safety and safety issues as well it will work is better known then it was during the period the lucky important people and roles got it administered.

 

So who is actually the lucky one?

It should be about the easiest thing in the world to give bung the nurse to not give you the vaccine as was mentioned earlier, but should pay more than 500Bt whether the nurse is a ladyboy or not.

 

Possibly but I wouldn't bet on it..

"Bung" the nurse may be equally happy to do her patriotic duty and report you-thus ensuring that yet another "farang" enjoys the delights of a detention centre before winging their way homeward.

There are 1,400 different species of bats. They make up around a fifth of all mammal species and are hosts to thousands of different viruses (they carry over 400 different types of coronavirus, for instance) so only a tiny, tiny percentage of viruses from bats ever cross over into humans. So I think the evidence actually shows that the vast, vast majority of bat viruses do have difficulty infecting humans.

It's hard to tell at this point. Will there be horrific reports of adverse effects? Will a vaccination be required to travel? Etc. etc., many aspects to consider.

 

That said, I'm leaning towards yes, provided it's both safe and effective. So that's what I voted for. I won't be in a hurry until that will be known with a high degree of certainty.

Indeed once proven I will take it. Countries will put barriers in place for those who wont take it as it will diminish the reflectivity (the non repsonders and those who cant take it for medical reasons) will be at the mercy of the anti vaxers. So i see a lot of countries especially Thailand and other autocratic countries making it mandatory for those who want to visit. 

 

I don't see that happening in my country though i wish they did. Too long have anti vaxers brought harm to others by not taking the vaccine. Especially in the bible belt many kids die because of the anti vax movement.

 

Too bad its not just them but also others that they hurt. (the two groups i talked bout). The higher the number of people vaccinated the more coverage there is for those who cant take it or who are non responders. Its purely selfish of people who can take it (after its proven safe) don't take it. Different from smoking oneself to death or drinking or doing drugs. This effects others.

 

But again only after its been tested and is safe. But I think with the eyes of the world on this they won't cut corners. Too many people would know too many people are watching. I mean there are many companies that make the vaccine now and they all want their stuff to work. So they will screen the competition too.   

No problem here. I don't expect 100% efficiency but if enough people take it transmission of Covid19 will be slowed. Those that are afraid just need to deal with their fears.

Nah, I'll go along for the vaccine and slip the Thai nurse 500bht to not inject me.

No need to let the world know you didn't take it.

You wouldn't want others to know your afraid of needles.

I have tried the Flu vaccine twice and both times I got a month long lasting irritating cough. 

 

Yeah, but if you hadn't taken the vaccine the irritating cough would have been worse, don't you know? 🤣

 

Incredible that vaccine junkies actually believe stuff like that.

That's fine but if there are too many people like you then a vaccine won't help reach the goal of herd immunity. It's kind of like masks. It's a collective thing to help the greater society. 

:crazy:

😂😂😂😂

 

It’s sad and funny how brainwashed you are.

Funny because of obvious reasons.

Sad because you represent the masses and people like you will be the reason why people like me will be forced into vaccination.

 

I wish I could I create two parts on the earth, one part where people like you get 274774842 vaccines, and one part where people get none.

 

It would be an eye-opener for you.
