Unusually for me, I find myself in disagreement with Paul. Pharmaceutical companies are now not liable for the harm or death their COVID vaccines cause (in the past they have paid billions in compensation to those harmed by their other vaccines). Also, this time the COVID vaccines have not been properly tested. The mRNA technology (also in some flu shots, which Paul hasn’t taken) is a worry for me and also the PEG ingredient, to which people can have bad allergic and respiratory reactions, such as anaphylactic shock. Add to that the business links between drug companies and SAGE committee members (for example, Sir Patrick Vallance, who has £600K invested in GSK, for whom he worked) and you have a recipe for trouble in my opinion. If a vaccine merely renders one asymptomatic, I for one will be waiting a while before I judge that a vaccine is safe.
