Lucky you are not this guy who died 2 hours after getting the vaccine.

Or this guy who went into severe anaphalactic shock.

Nothing is 100% safe.

True.
But the question is whether an otherwise healthy person should take a vaccine that is at best 95% effective in preventing symptoms which has a 2.5 % serious adverse reaction rate when the rate of serious symptoms of COVID for healthy people is far far less than 2.5%. Around 0.1%.

According to the UK NHS only 377 healthy people under 60 have died of COVID.
Out of 2.3 million cases that is 0.016%.

I support people's choice but its important to get risks and benefits clear.

On that point, I can agree.

For me, it's part of the job.
