In Uk, reported deaths and cases of coronavirus add up to 1 in 28 cases end up in death. Please take the vaccine people

That was based on

1’878,000 cases confirmed and 63,000 deaths a few days ago

I guess there may be many more cases, but I’m certainly guessing the true figure is not less than around 1 in 50 at best

So please take the vaccine people.
There were 2 allergies per several thousand and they recovered
Please if you are offered, take it
And please encourage others
Nothing else is more likely to help keep you well


I’d say the same for people here in the USA too.


Yes, and please wear masks and socially distance. The fact that many folks are still not doing this is what’s causing the rapid spread of covid.

The U.S. is on the brink of having 300,000 covid deaths and many of those deaths could have been avoided if folks had taken covid seriously and listened to the medical experts’ guidance.

Even with the vaccine rolling out over the next several months, people need to be smart and protect themselves and each other from covid. Otherwise, they may not be alive to get the vaccine.


Can somebody clarify something for me?

I don’t understand all this talk about if 70% of people aren’t vaccinated then the vaccine won’t work. I’ve thought vaccines can protect you regardless of how many people get vaccine. I’m willing to be only 40-60% of people will get vaccine.

I think you’re referring to the percent of people who need to get the vaccine to achieve herd immunity.


Below is an excerpt from the above link to the website for the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) —

What is herd immunity?

Herd immunity (or community immunity) occurs when a high percentage of the community is immune to a disease (through vaccination and/or prior illness), making the spread of this disease from person to person unlikely. Even individuals not vaccinated (such as newborns and the immunocompromised) are offered some protection because the disease has little opportunity to spread within the community.

Vaccines prevent many dangerous and deadly diseases. In the United States, smallpox and polio have both been stamped out because of vaccination. However, there are certain groups of people who cannot get vaccinated and are vulnerable to disease: babies, pregnant women, and immunocompromised people, such as those receiving chemotherapy or organ transplants. For example, the earliest a baby can receive their first pertussis or whooping cough vaccine is at two months, and the earliest a child can receive their first measles vaccine is at one year, making them vulnerable to these diseases.

Herd immunity depends on the contagiousness of the disease. Diseases that spread easily, such as measles, require a higher number of immune individuals in a community to reach herd immunity. Herd immunity protects the most vulnerable members of our population. If enough people are vaccinated against dangerous diseases, those who are susceptible and cannot get vaccinated are protected because the germ will not be able to “find” those susceptible individuals.

When can we expect herd immunity for COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a very contagious disease. A large percentage of the population will need to be immune against the disease (through infection or vaccination) before herd immunity will be achieved. It is not known when that will happen, but it will depend on how many people develop immunity after COVID-19 infection, how soon a COVID-19 vaccine is widely available, how many vaccine doses will be available for distribution, and how many people get vaccinated. Throughout this time period until herd immunity is achieved, it is very important to continue to wear masks in public and social distance to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Several drug makers have developed promising vaccines for COVID-19 and have submitted applications for emergency use authorization to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If the FDA approves the vaccines for use, then the focus will shift to manufacturing the vaccine, educating members of the public about the vaccine, and distribution of the vaccine. Although these efforts will take some time to achieve, vaccines have proven to be the safest, most cost-effective way to protect people from disease. APIC continues to monitor and advocate on policies affecting each one of these steps and will continue to share consumer information via our social media channels."


I always wear a mask when going to the supermarket. But you still get the idiots, mainly the 20 somethings that are wondering around not wearing one. Its not like they look like they got any respiratory disease either. Drives me mad.

I will be in the que for the vaccine here in uk - once they have done the other groups. They started here just a couple of days ago.

Im indoors most of the time and dont go out for days, so i reckon its a safe bet i wont catch it.

To put it in shorter terms, if 70% of people get the vaccine, the virus won’t be able to travel between people, so even unvaccinated people will be protected. If less people get the vaccine, only the people who have the vaccine will be protected.

I would probably take it if I was in the risk group. But most likely I already had corona and am immune. Also I think it is wise to see how the vaccine affects people long term. After all they have produced and tested it in record speed. They do not have any knowledge of possible long term effects.

Exactly what I’m talking about

No where near is the vaccine as dangerous as coronavirus
You would know if you had it, it’s an absolute horror monster of a virus
You don’t know if that makes you immune
Vaccine will not cause one in 50 deaths or one in 30 deaths

Well, I’m not talking about deaths, but vaccines can possible give people chronic diseases, especially vaccines like this one that has not been properly tested and has been given emergency clearance. This has happened in history before with other vaccines and is why some people are fundamentaly against them. I hope this vaccine is good though, but we won’t know for sure before some time has passed.

Are you talking About the MMR vaccine? Because that was a complete farce
Or others

Of course it’s not just you as well… by Vaccinating you’re protecting others, basically saving lives

I’m not debating against that ideally we should all take a vaccine that can protect us and save other peoples lives.

I’m simply making a argument that some vaccines have caused chronic diseases in some of the subjects that have taken it, and since the corona vaccine has not been properly tested we know nothing about long term effects.

I would hate to take a vaccine and get some weird chronic disease for life, like I’m sure others would as well. That’s why I won’t be first in line to take it.

Okay, sure, I can’t argue with that I just don’t feel the same way
