To Vaccinate Or Not?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

The salient question that is now foremost in most Bahamians and residents minds is: “Do I voluntarily take the recommended vaccine and just how safe is it?” During the past two weeks I have been polling listeners on my radio talk show: ExpressYourself @ 99.5 FM on exactly that same question. So far, in excess of 75% of the responders stated that under No Circumstances, except mandated by the law, would they be injected with the vaccine, Astrazeneca, now available in limited quantities in The Bahamas.

Some have expressed fears that the vaccine is the advent of the ‘Mark of the Beast’ and that it was foretold in The Book of Revelations. Others say that the potential side effects, such as blood clotting and breathing issues, were too risky. The rest said that they will simply rely on The Lord Jesus Christ to keep them safe and well. What will you be doing, my fellow Bahamians going forward?

Unless and until there is a better explanation about All of the properties of any vaccine and a better public educational relations programme I, for one, Will Not be receiving what is now available. Several nations around the world have rejected the purported safety of the AstraZeneca vaccination partially or outright. Apparently we do not now have access to the other vaccines that have been “approved” by other manufacturers. The FNM administration has indicated that “more dosages’’ are on the way.

One member of the medical task force, Dr Dellon Brennen, has indicated that we might not receive enough dosages of any vaccine until 2022! How many Bahamians and residents could/will die while we are awaiting these? Who will decide who will have access to the limited supplies on hand? A Death Commission? Are the raw data and test results on the humans clinically tested available to the general public? If so, how may they be accessed?

And so, as it stands right now I Do Not Recommend that anyone who values his/her life to be injected with what could be a “dubious” vaccination, at this time. I fully appreciate and understand that the nation must return to a sense of normalcy as soon as possible BUT at what cost? Will the available vaccine lead to more COVID-19 related deaths than the actual pandemic itself?

While the jury, so to speak, is still out on the efficiency and safety of the available vaccines, I, too, will trust in The Lord Jesus Christ to protect and sustain me. To God then, the Great Physician, in all things, be the glory.

If according to hench Covid woman, Bahamians refuse to bow to vaccine profits for our elites ' one day Haiti will face its media barrage of new strain, or The Bahamas, should we not fall to new Covid slave master dictatorship. Going on two years with Covid noose around our necks, masks on our faces, hands chained around our backs, and chains around our feet powers that be are Covid millionaires. The masses are broke.

Covid has a 99.9%+ survivability rate, that's my answer.

Take the vaccine like a good little slave and you may end up like the lady here:

What are you implying? No cause of death has been announced

Truly frightening to say the least. But not the least bit surprising given AstraZeneca's track record of putting profits ahead of the health and well being of the users of its products that have been rushed to market.

The drug companies are using the world population as guinea pigs for the global "vaccine" rollout! Big Pharma in bed with governments big time! Hopefully, in time, a non-corrupt scientist or group thereof will come up with a good "flu shot" for this virus. Of course their will have to be further "flu shots" for the "mutations". There's plenty good money to be made, supplying the world with the drugs of the trade!
