Think the issue here is that the danger [from Covid] is low to 95% + of the population (and all signs point to Omicron being far less dangerous than even that) and that there will inevitably be [many] further variants discovered - so do we constantly 'boost' every 3-6 months forever? The other jabs you cite are mainly given to children/young people onceand not repeatedly and flu jabs are only offered and/or taken up by those people who either need them because they are vulnerable or choose to have them and there is not the same legalistic/moral browbeating around flu jabs is there? (I've never had a flu jab but equally have never been accused of being a 'granny killer' for not doing so!) - for context I'm having my 3rd ['booster'] jab tomorrow but will be reluctant to have yet further jabs – aside from which vaccines are not a panacea as the vaccine does not prevent 100% of deaths from Covid 100% of the time and does not prevent transmission (doesn’t make them a bad idea but they must not be seen as the ultimate solution rather a safety net)lowandhard wrote: December 19th, 2021, 9:21 pmAgreed. Isn’t it odd that being immunised against polio, tetanus, smallpox etc is uncontroversial and when going to other parts of the world, Typhoid, Hep B etc etc but a jab against a proven killer like Covid is a cause of enormous argument?County ranger wrote: December 19th, 2021, 5:31 pmI think both Liverpool and Wolves have come out and said all players are vaccinated two points doing all they can to avoid postponing matches and wasting fans money and also sending a good lifestyle choice message to both local community and fans.UPTHEPORT wrote: December 19th, 2021, 4:54 pmFu Ming wrote: December 19th, 2021, 4:00 pm What % of County players and staff have had jabs?
I know a lot are young and wouldn't of had the 2nd or 3rd jab yet.
It would great to know that our club and players are taking this matter seriously, and effectively insisting that all playing and non playing staff to do with the club get jabbed.
That's getting into patient confidential in my view
It would be great if County and other EFL teams could follow the lead.
I, like many, couldn’t wait to get my booster and will look forward to my omicron jab next year. Perhaps my generation that had parents and relatives who had suffered with tuberculosis and who had classmates irredeemably damaged by polio are more immediately educated in the benefits of vaccination and remember once upon a time penicillin was a new, experimental drug but it saved the life of millions as will this vaccination program.
