Phuket Poll: Would you take a COVID vaccine?

PHUKET: With Phuket amid a big push to attract domestic tourists to the island and the call by all major Phuket businesses associations, not just tourism industry representatives, for the island to re-open to international visitors from Oct 1, all eyes are turning to COVID vaccination as Phuket’s big hope to restart the island’s economy.

Yet much about COVID vaccines are being hotly debated right now, with concerns over which vaccine to take, which vaccines will be available, which vaccines will be recognised by the Thai government if and when foreign tourists return, who will pay for mass vaccination of people in Thailand and exactly who will be vaccinated in which order taking centre stage.

To all this, The Phuket News asks one simple question: “Would you take a COVID vaccine if one were available?”

Responses available to the poll are:

1) Yes

2) No

Thai Residential

3) It depends on which vaccine

As noted above, the simple question involves many issues. If your preferred response is not available, feel free to mark it in the comments section below.

The poll will remain online until midnight Friday night next week (Feb 19).

anyone questioning the covid narrative and asking for transparency with a 2 sided debate are labelled conspiracy theorists by the media. i call them complicity theorists and please check the dictionary for the meaning. all i am asking for is for transparency regarding the science behind the PCR test and safety of the vaccine. it is quoted the vaccine is gene therapy and irreversible.

i am not against successful vaccines. informed consent and transparency of the side effects is a safety issue. WHO has released a statement quoting even if they reach 100% vaccinated that social distancing, travel restrictions and lockdowns will still be kept in place. life as we know it is over. they have won.

The US national library of medicine has quoted the vaccine is a 2 year experiment and only has a partial licence pending the results of the  2 year experiment. transparent informed consent of the vaccine side effects has not been forth coming by the media. under the nuremburg code any experimental vaccine cannot be made mandatory. this is russian roulette.

Yes, I would take Moderna or J&J vaccination the moment it is available in Chalong and surrounding. And I demand that it will be noted in my international vaccination book. Other vaccines have logistic temperature/transport problems. Chinese vaccine needs more time to judge as consumer.
