The prime minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern’s Fakebook post dramatically backfired. On the 26 September 2021, she posted this:
“I was reading some research today, on why some people have chosen not to be vaccinated to protect them against COVID 19 yet. One of the most common is that they’re worried about the side effects. So let’s talk about that!
Like all medicines, you might experience some mild side effects 1—2 days after getting your vaccination. That is totally normal, and also a sign that your body is learning to fight the virus.
Most side effects don’t last long. For me, I had a sore arm after my first dose (it reminded me of the tetanus jab) and I felt a bit weary after the second one, but not for long! If you’re worried about side effects, why not reach out to someone you know and trust who has had the vaccine, and ask how they felt? Or talk to your GP. You’ll also find more at https://covid19.govt.nz/…/side-effects-of-covid-19…/”
I had my first one and had anaphylaxis for the first time in my life. It’s a NO from me for the 2nd one! Thank you!
A good friends brother in law has died, and another friend has had a death at their work. A girl from my school days nearly passed out at Vac centre and couldn’t move for a few days and have heard of another contact who has had a Bell’s palsy turn …my immediate family have only had sore arms and tiredness. Lots of people are OK BUT alot are not, it’s very concerning
Are you reading the replies Jacinda? Story after story… this vaccine is not suitable for all people. Have some respect for individual needs, stop bullying your country. Let us live freely based on whats best for us and our families, not by whats best for your reputation.
