Jab better than ventilator

Forum –

I read your correspondent’s letter (“Policy ‘not in step with global experience”, CCN318) with a degree of astonishment bordering upon incredulity.

He seems to object to alleged “experimental” vaccines and that they are not 100 per cent effective.

On the contrary, they have actually been thoroughly tested by accepted standards, and no vaccine can totally prevent someone from catching any sort of a bug as vaccine resistance is not unknown.

I would rather take my chances with a minuscule possibility of my two AstraZeneca jabs not working than ending up on a ventilator with potentially fatal consequences as I happen to have a respiratory problem.

When I want medical advice I consult a doctor, not a social media page; what does your correspondent do?
