“You’re well within your right to know which vaccine you’re taking.

In this post, I am addressing the moral case for taking or not taking the Jab and I am no science or Medical guru. 

Everyone has a choice.   

When you get vaccinated, you should receive a card or printout telling you which COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date, and where you received it. You’ll also get a fact sheet listing the vaccine’s risks and benefits.

At the moment there are:  

Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine- USA.

Pfizer’s vaccine – USA

Novavax -USA

and AstraZeneca. – Uk

CanSino – China.

Others in trial.   Valneva, GSK/Sanofi Pasteur, Janssen.

Vaccines and drugs often take years to go through trials and development before gaining approval and being used to treat patients. So with vaccines ready to be delivered within months of Covid-19’s emergence, it’s fair to ask how we can be sure they’re safe.

Could issues present themselves years down the line? No one knows. 100 percent safety can never be guaranteed. 

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses within 28 days. These vaccines don’t contain live viruses and will not give you COVID-19.

They are mRNA vaccines that use a strip of genetic material called mRNA. Once the mRNA enters a cell, it triggers the cell to build copies of the spike proteins. The immune system learns to recognize these spike proteins through the production of antibodies that block the virus from entering healthy cells. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines work this way.

The Pfizer vaccine needs to be kept at super-cold temperatures of -70 degrees Celsius, while the Moderna vaccine must be stored at -2 degrees Celsius and must be used within 12 hours once it reaches room temperature.

The Pfizer vaccine is approved for individuals 16 and older.

The Moderna’s has been approved for patients 18 and older.

The AstraZenecaViral vector vaccines rely on another virus, called an adenovirus.

There is nothing in either vaccine that could affect anyone’s genetic makeup.“There is no evidence at all that they have any effect on fertility

For many diseases, immunity acquired naturally often lasts longer than immunity from a vaccine. But that means you have to suffer, and survive, the disease,”  So what is called herd immunity might well be achievable but at the cost of millions more deaths and suffering.   

To debunked myth that has with the help of social media morphed into a conspiracy theory after Bill Gates suggested creating a digital certificate of vaccine records.

There is no microchip and no tracking device of any kind in either vaccine.

It’s almost hard to deny this stuff because it’s so stupid or strange that even

to repeat it gives it credibility. 


Unfortunately, it’s too early for anyone to knows whether any of the vaccines

will actually affect the virus spread with a new mutation or whether

symptomless vaccine takers could still infect others.


Everyone wants to see the back of Covid-19.

The truth at the moment is that there is a carnival of wild claims, distortions,

and flat-out lies about whichever jab you happen to get.


The pharmaceutical companies that developed these vaccines did so

against their own  Data.

We don’t know how long vaccine-induced immunity is going to last.

Will we all have to carry either a digital health card or some other government Pass?

More than likely. 

If we need a booster jab does it have to be the same vaccine or anyone of the others? 

What would happen if you had one on each? 

In the end, we have to hope that there are no unseen consequences from any of the available vaccines. 

Should you take a jab?

The vaccines’ effectiveness isn’t dependent on the scientists alone. It’s also dependent on us. So, what should we do and why? Here’s why I am going to get vaccinated.

Vaccines are something we do for each other as much as ourselves.

It depends on a personal basis on what value you place on your life but with society-wide consequences.

As much as viruses are scourges and will always be here, vaccines are our friends. Before the measles vaccine, that disease killed millions of kids every year. About that gift horse, we should not be looking at. 

It will show what we’re made of.

All human comments are appreciated. All like clicks and abuse chucked in the bin.
