Are COVID-19 Vaccines Safe, Effective and Necessary?

COVID-19 Vaccine Risk Management (CVRM)

TermDefinition(s)
Safe– not able or likely to be hurt or harmed in any way: not in danger
– not able or likely to be lost, taken away, or given away
– not involving or likely to involve danger, harm, or loss.
Questions to ask:Question #1: Is there a possibility that you could be hurt or harmed in any way by taking a COVID-19 vaccine?

Answer: Yes. Possible side effects for the vaccines listed below:

– Comirnaty (Pfizer)
– Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca)
– Spikevax (Moderna)

Question #2: Is it possible, or are you likely, to lose, or have something given or taken away?

Answer: Yes. You could lose your job by helping implement the “No Jab, No Job” policy. You could experience a miscarriage due to taking the vaccine. There is evidence that miscarriages can occur after taking the vaccine most commonly between 6 and 10 weeks. If there is a chance of miscarriage, then loss is possible albeit “rare”. There is also  your loss of the right to choose what medical procedures are performed on your body and your children’s bodies.

Question #3: Is there a risk of danger, harm or loss due to taking the vaccine?

Answer: Yes. Even if serious injuries or deaths are “rare”, there are multiple adverse reactions that are deemed “common”. 
TermDefinition(s)
Effective– producing a result that is wanted: having an intended effect.
Questions to ask:Question #1: Do the vaccines produce the desired effect? i.e. do they reduce the symptoms of the virus? Do they stop transmission? Do they stop you from getting the virus? Is “herd immunity” likely to be achieved if everyone takes the vaccine?

Answer: There is evidence that COVID-19 vaccination reduces the chances of severe symptoms. However, there is also evidence that indicates you will experience the same mild to moderate symptoms if you take the vaccines which include: tiredness, headache, muscle pain, fever and chills, joint pain and nausea. “Similarly to Covid positive cases, most people who have an adverse reaction to the Covid vaccine recover without medical treatment.”

Vaccines do not stop you from getting the virus or transmitting it. Evidence suggests vaccination reduces transmission by 40 to 60%. “Unfortunately, the vaccine’s beneficial effect on Delta transmission waned to almost negligible levels over time.”Hence the need for booster shots. There is mounting evidence that indicates natural immunity is stronger and longer lasting than vaccine induced immunity. So you can catch the virus whether you’re vaccinated or not.

“Herd immunity” is not likely using the currently available COVID-19 vaccines. “I think we are in a situation here with this current variant where herd immunity is not a possibility because it still infects vaccinated individuals,” Sir Andrew Pollard, head of the Oxford Vaccine Group. One of the developers of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
TermDefinition(s)
Necessary– so important that you must do it or have it: absolutely needed
– unable to be changed or avoided.
Questions to ask:Question #1: COVID-19 has a recovery rate of 97 to 99.75%. Why is it deemed so necessary that we vaccinate against a virus that appears to be just as deadly as influenza?

Answer: It’s not absolutely needed.

Question #2: Is it possible to change the type of vaccine or can vaccination be avoided altogether?

Answer: There are vaccine alternatives that are potentially going to be available in Australia soon. This includes: Novavax and Covax. It is not necessary to take the vaccines as natural immunity does lessen severity and prevents reinfection for a period of time.
