I will take my chance with the vaccine as soon as I am offered one.  I accept there is probably some risk of long term side effects, but I'm nearly 67, so not too worried. If I were in my 20s, I might think differently.

Mr Wah feels the same as me.  He's 73, and, although he is in good physical health, he believes he will surely die if he gets Covid.  Oh dear!!

67 is still young!  Look at the Queen!  You might have another 30 plus years in the tank!

I'm over 40 and under 60 so I guess that makes me 50ish  8)><( and afaik I don't have any health issues so I would prefer to catch covid and hopefully build natural immunity rather than be vaccinated.  But it might make life difficult without a vaccine eg overseas travel and insurance. 
Just my opinion of course but Jeremy Bamber is innocent and a couple from UK, unknown to T9, abducted Madeleine McCann - motive unknown.

Unfortunately catching Covid when being in ones fifties and being healthy is not without problems.
Our eldest  son, aged 50 and in very good health, caught Covid early March.
His breathing and lung capacity have not returned to as it was before the virus and he had to have a chest xray last week.
We await the results.
I should add that he wasn't terribly unwell with the virus and this was in March before testing was introduced.
He is a teacher and possibly caught it in school.
All teachers have been given a monthly blood test to see if they have had the virus and his test shows he has.
He still has the antibodies ........

I wish your son a full and speedy recovery. 

By the time the likes of me are offered the vaccine I might well feel differently about it especially if it presents issues with regards to travelling overseas, obtaining travel insurance etc.

Thank you.
And in spite of the supposed ability of this virus to easily infect others who share a home, our daughter in law who is also a teacher and has also been tested shows no indication of having had the virus.
I'm not too sure when we will be offered the vaccine,we are both in our early seventies, so possibly early Spring and it will be with some trepidation that we do attend.

All the health care professionals appear to be singing from the same hymn sheet over the safeness.  By the time your turn comes round thousands, if not millions, will have gone before you.  Assuming the US and EU medi regulators also approve sounds like it might be the way to go ie get vaccinated!

My hairdresser is around your age, and she says the same. She wont have a flu vaccine either. 

I suppose one reason why hubby and I want the vaccine is that we want to be able to travel----particularly to see our son and family in Canada. Would be wonderful not to have to worry about being tested, tracked, traced and isolated!

I hope your son recovers soon. We also know someone who had the virus in March, and who is still feeling the effects. Not good.

The results from his xray are fortunately clear.
However another teacher in his school came back after a five week absence because of Covid and has had to be declared unfit for work again.

Here I am ; the guinea pig.

Had my first Pfizer injection yesterday.  So far no ill effects.
Yet I had an allergic reaction to my annual regular flu jab this year, so was a bit worried.


Hubby has his second Phizer jab in a weeks time


After the first jab, we both immediately felt a bit liberated - but we still remain housebound.

Despite being in my mid-seventies with no health problems I am getting my first Covid injection on Monday. I'm happy to take it so that I don't end up occupying a hospital bed.
No-one here believes the parents were directly involved in MM's disappearance because belief without evidence is useless.

You’re very fortunate.  My parents who are in their mid 80s both with certain health issues have not had theirs yet nor been given any indication at all of when they are likely to get it.
“we have carried out a very serious investigation and there is no indication whatsoever Madeleine McCann's parents are linked to her disappearance” - Hans Christian Wolters, German Prosecutor..

“Conspiracy theories exhibit a strong obsession with detail, often taking the form of highlighting a tiny piece of evidence and blowing it up out of all proportion, buttressing their claims with a display of pseudo-scholarship.  When they examine the real evidence, conspiracy theorists do not accept that minor inconsistencies come from mistakes in reporting.” Sir Richard J Evans, author and historian

Looks like our relations with China will soon go down the pangolin...

Unlike the Russians, the Chinese are the silent aggressor. They have weedled their way into just about every facet of life on this planet. They are pumping money in everywhere with the intention of taking over the world by stealth. At least Donald Trump saw through them?

As I understand it the above is being worked on with various timescales given the longest some 18 months.  Those working on a vaccine have admitted it will not go though all the normal clinical trials to check for side effects because it can take months/years for any side effects to develop.

How do others feel about getting vaccinated given the above?

I think the new Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine which was developed in Oxford and which only costs a couple of quid will do the trick.
