I have no medical qualifications but I find it very difficult to disagree with the content of this video.

I don't wish to upset anybody, but nor do I wish poor health or worse on anyone for any reason.

It is I believe indisputable that these Covid vaccines have not been through sufficiently exhaustive trials to permit any judgment to be reached about their long-term safety, and on this ground alone they cannot be assumed to be safe. I am not alone in this viewpoint.

Add to that the comparatively low numbers of elderly who were involved in the vaccine trials and it becomes clear that the efficacy and safety of these vaccines for this age group should not be assumed to be as high as for other age groups.

Add to that the new mRNA technology upon which these vaccines are based has never been the basis for a successful vaccine previously (all attempts failed on safety grounds) - this is further cause for concern.

Any one of the above reasons should be sufficient to label these vaccines as "experimental" and to prevent the roll-out to the general public, and especially to the more vulnerable elderly.

Whilst this video from Irish campaigner Gemma O'Doherty is upsetting in parts, we live in upsetting times. Whether or not the actions suggested meet with your favour is for you to decide:
