Will you get vaccinated for coronavirus?

  1. Yes, right away, as soon as possible, when the first vaccine becomes available

  2. Yes, planning to, but I will wait a while to see if there are any potential long-term side effects

  3. Maybe, I haven't decided yet one way or another

  4. No, I'm not going to get vaccinated

      Hi I chose not to vaccinate myself.

      My reasons are:

      - I don't take medical interventions unless it's absolutely necessary.
      - The information about the safety of the vaccines is clouded by political and commercial interests on one side and stories about side effects on the other. I rather wait until all the data is gathered, analyzed and the fog has cleared up.
      - The vaccine in 2010 against Mexican Flu had Narcolepsy as a rare side effect. It took 8 years for the Dutch government to admit this and pay for damages.

      I have COVID-19 now as I'm writing this. I have mild flu-like symptoms. I'll be getting a proof of recovery, but I will not install the Corona app, because I won't support a discriminating platform, which degrades people who aren't vaccinated to 2nd class citizens.

      And now that I have built up natural immunity against COVID-19, I don't see why I should ever take a vaccine in the future.

      Up until now my tinnitus remains the same during my COVID-19 infection.

      There are some early possible indications, coming from Denmark, Iceland, and Canada data, that being vaccinated might actually mean a HIGHER chance of contracting Covid than for unvaccinated people. Still early, still tentative, but fascinating new info if this turns out to be the case as more data from more countries is published as the Omicron variant plays out.

      Has Covid vaccine efficacy turned negative?

      I had an annual physical exam with my doctor today. I was dreading the question if I had received the Covid shots. I responded honestly that I had not, and explained why. The doctor was understanding, and he had even heard a bit about the side effects on the auditory system, and did not press the issue with me.

      A while ago there was a joke doing the rounds suggesting the one thing pro-covjab and anti-covjab have in common is they'll both never be fully vaccinated. Get ready for Pfizer V1.1.

      Anybody here from Quebec Canada who hasn't been vaccinated? What are your plans for the Quebec vaccination tax introduced by the government? I'm not sure if it's official yet. You could also get a medical exemption. I wonder if tinnitus would qualify. I'm really worried taking the vaccine... it seems some people have reacted badly to it.

      I spiked from the vaccine and now I’m spiking after recovering from COVID-19. It’s a lose-lose situation.

      I had got through most of COVID-19 until late November.

      I hadn’t taken any vaccine as I didn’t think I needed them. I may have actually had COVID-19 very early in 2020.

      However it seemed the right thing for work so I took the Pfizer jab.

      No bad effects until day 8 after the vaccination.

      Then all hell broke out in my head. Loud tones, heavy thumping pulsatile tinnitus. It has continued to this day.

      With Omicron being pretty mild by all accounts if you have any history of tinnitus or ear issues please think carefully before taking a vaccination.

      I only wish I had read a post like this before deciding to get vaccinated.

      False:

      Claim vaccines increase susceptibility to omicron unfounded

      Perhaps you think the AP has an agenda:

      This is part of AP’s effort to address widely shared misinformation, including work with outside companies and organizations to add factual context to misleading content that is circulating online.

      Your story has been debunked for weeks. The data is still clear that vaccines (1) reduce transmission and symptomatic COVID-19 (anywhere from 4 to 8 times less risk of symptomatic infection) and (2) reduce the risk of severe disease 10 fold.

      Please I beg everyone here to stop spreading false information.

      Sorry to hear that your tinnitus has spiked. While it's easy to blame the vaccine, I would at least consider whether other factors might be at play. For me personally, stress and anxiety play a huge role in my tinnitus.

      While on an individual basis, your theory on Omicron may work it's not going to be a good long term solution as other variants will likely pop up with varying degrees of severity.

      I do think on an individual level, considering whether to get vaccinated makes sense if you have tinnitus or other heath issues. I have been diagnosed with middle ear myoclonus which started after receiving my shot. I can't prove it's related to the vaccine and I can't prove it's not. Correlation does not equal causation. However, I live with vulnerable individuals so I will need to take into account what's best for them not just what's best for me.

      Also getting vaccinated is not just about you but also about others around you.

      Please. This is nonsense. Whatever his reasons, science wasn't one of them. You think his doctors have special secret information that the rest of us do not have access to?

      I am absolutely sure it was the Pfizer vaccine that caused my tinnitus to resume.

      I had been free of tinnitus for nigh on 3.5 years.

      8 days after the shot absolutely unprecedented tinnitus.

      An immunologist will tell you it takes 7 or 8 days for the mRNA vaccine to kick in.

      There were no other noise or stress factors involved.

      Unfortunately for some people the vaccines are toxic.

      Actually, I do think that.

      Do "the rest of us" have access to any meaningful data about the COVID-19, its effects, data about the vaccines, its secondary effects etc?

      Here in Spain journalists have spent 2 years talking about COVID-19 and we do not even know anything about the side effects produced by the vaccines!

      There was absolutely no information here about the approval process (if any) that followed these vaccines in Spain...

      So maybe Djokovic is better informed than us... who knows!
      At my workplace people who did get vaccinated are the ones getting sick, taking medical leave, and spreading the virus!

      I did not get vaccinated and have not caught COVID-19 so far. I have not missed a single day of work either.

      Quebec is part of the Canadian police state. I believe it's very difficult to get a medical exemption for this anywhere, not just Canada. The Government and Medical Board aka College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (incl. CPAO in Ontario, CMQ in Quebec) will not allow Physicians to grant exemptions. Any who do are threatened by these boards and they will go after them.

      I can find news reports if you don't believe it. Or you can investigate it yourself. It's simpler to just summarize it as THEY DON'T CARE - about you, about your tinnitus or about anything. They will try their hardest to coerce you and it's up to you to decide what is best for you. This site has plenty of people who claim COVID-19 vaccines worsened their tinnitus.

      He's been kicked out of Australia and banned for 3 years because "he might stir up anti-vaccine sentiments."

      This is, AFAIK, arguably, one of if not the #1 tennis player in the world.

      Lol. He's been kicked out because of a political agenda Normal people are up against this totalitarian society. Choose your side. Sports including the Australian Open is part of the political Clown World. What a joke.

      I don't really see the point of treating unvaccinated people differently, when it is those who did get the vaccine who are getting sick and spreading the virus. That's what I see at work every day...

      So this virus is sooo dangerous and Novak Djokovic has been travelling all over the place, without getting vaccinated... and hey, the guy is still alive!

      Yes, the Novak decision was totally political. It didn't seem to be an issue until the Australian public lost the plot about him being here. Then our pathetic government backtracked as though him being here had nothing to do with them in the first place.

      To makeyourownluck:

      Ignore Michael Leigh.

      He has with snarling vituperation initiated the most fatuous arguments with (I kid you not) too-many-to-count posters on this Forum (myself included) whenever he was confronted with the even the slightest difference of opinion.

      There is something REALLY REALLY wrong with him.

      It also never occurs to him that by this behavior he is conceivably the very worst advertisement imaginable for his highly vaunted insistence about the legitimacy of TRT.

      He is reminiscent of that Monty Python skit wherein John Cleese had a "practise" that involved "clients" paying to be inveigled by him into provoking ridiculous arguments.

      His utterly unsubstantiated recommendation that (according to "most" ENT Doctors) someone wait six months before seeing one "in case it just goes away by itself" is, even given his level of wrongheaded discourse, the worst possible advice.

      In fact, I myself made this inexcusably foolish assumption in early 2014, and when it did not go away I was then compelled to see an ENT Doctor.

      He said, "If you had come to me immediately I might have been in a position to try something, but after all this time there is nothing I can do."



      I found your report regarding the execrable state of patient care from your NHS to be very revealing. I am dismayed by this because I always regarded your System as exemplifying a Standard that should be emulated by the US.

      I suppose I should regard your comment about not believing that I come from Chicago because I should be read with an English Accent as the veriest kind of left-Handed Compliment (in fact, I found it to be rather amusingly clever and revealing about how Europeans still regard us).

      We have recently vacated our Neolithic Huts and will soon be catching up with the Modern World.

      Hey, the Nobel Laureate Saul Bellow lived in Chicago.

      Ernest Hemmingway also grew up in my suburb.

      You can’t possibly believe that vaccinated people are responsible for spreading the virus and unvaccinated people are not. If you believe that, then there is no logic or reason or hope for you. Good luck my friend. You’re going to need it. Might as well be talking to Joe Rogan.

      European countries are on 3rd and 4th boosters. As predicted, they are not considered vaccinated if they only had two.

      France requirement for triple-vaccination COVID pass begins

      Makes sense, right?

      Oh, these vaccines work until the next variant shows up.

      Just read an "expert" claim the next variants will be more troubling. I am so shocked, I really am. :rolleyes:
