Not Everyone Should Receive The COVID-19 Vaccine – See if You’re On The List
SHARE

After a long wait, the world finally has a COVID-19 vaccine. But there will always be skeptics out there, although many people had been eagerly asking for months about a vaccine to fight the pandemic. Whether you’re a conspiracy theorist or you just have too much faith in your own health, you have one more reason to be happy: the COVID-19 vaccine is not recommended for everyone.

Frontline health care workers and long-term care residents are the first groups that should be vaccinated for the deadly pandemic virus. But according to a new study of the Mayo Clinic, certain groups out there shouldn’t get the long-awaited vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine is not for pregnant women and those operated for bone marrow transplant

Besides pregnant women and those who have undergone a bone marrow transplant, people who have to deal with severe allergies should be cautious as well. But the problem is even more complicated than that, as the vaccine developed by Pfizer is also expected to have a requirement based on age. Dr. Virk from the Mayo Clinic says:

We don’t know what FDA’s cutoff is going to be and whether they’re going to allow us to use 16 as the cutoff. There are plans to study children between 12 and older but that has not been done yet.

However, this doesn’t mean the COVID-19 vaccine isn’t safe, according to health officials.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic is approaching its end, the overall numbers of worldwide infections and deaths are horrifying. There are over 71 million infections and almost 1.6 million deaths throughout the world because of the pandemic virus. The US remains the most affected country, and it reported a record number of deaths for Wednesday, December 9: 3,263 people. There’s a total of over 300,000 souls that left this world from the US because of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and the numbers will keep growing.

  1. I don’t need a doctor or any other authority advising me on whether I need to, or should not have a vaccine or any other medical procedure. I am completely capable of doing my own research and making an evaluation for myself as to what is right for me. This vaccine developed by Pfizer is horrifying and the research behind it has proven this type of technology to be, just that, for the past 20 – 30 years. For those who have not done their homework, they will pay a heavy price for their folly. And, those who have instigated this monstrosity will be counting their money and laughing.

    1. I understand your thoughts. Here’s my take. Many people die from the flu, flu shot, side effects of medications, negligence and other medical related issues. Frankly, I’d rather have the vaccine and did receive the Pfizer vaccine. I do not want the long term effects of having Covid. My former classmate contracted Covid and is currently on oxygen and a walker. The doctors do not know when these issues will subside or when she will return to normal. So, I would rather have the vaccine then not. We all wait and hope for the best.

      1. Yes, easy to say when you apparently have never had a near fatal encounter. I’m sure all those who have died from the covid vaccine if given a do over would not repeat it. With every jab is the potential of death. The CDC just needs you to agree that if death, it was worth trying to protect the living.

  2. Not sure if I will be available for me to get vaccine because I do have Rheumatoid Arthritis and do get REMICADE TREATMENT every two week —I heard that anyone who had RA should not be vaccine because of our immune system—is this true ????

    1. I also have RA and my Rheumatologist instructed his patients to wait til further notice !!! I am so interested in learning how other RA patients are dealing. All due to our compromised “Immune” system !!! And from what I have learned, the vaccine is all about getting ones immune system to ramp up !!! And if our immune system cannot, then what ????

    2. I also have RA and Crohn’s disease and other auto immune diseases. I take stellara shots now. Was on removals for five years but then I had a reaction and had to stop it. My doctors told me I had to wait in between stellara shots to get the vaccine. I just got the first moderna vaccine today. I’m getting nervous now because the news is saying it might not work on immune compromised rookie. Especially if they take immune suppressant meds. Even steroids. Which I also take. So we will see how it goes. I’m keeping my fingers crossed

      1. I got the Moderna and 4 months later I had chest pain, shortness of breath and dizziness. Doc said it was heart inflammation. Took a week to feel better but thought I was having heart attack.

    1. When you go to get the shot you will get a pamphlet of the ingredients before the shot. I’m like you a laundry list if med allergies and I took the Pizer and praise God so far so good.

    1. That is same reason I do not take flu besides other reasons. I do believe it must be an educated choice and also include masks, behavior to keep you and others safe.
