Our beloved Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah and our dearly loved and very capable Prime Minister Tan Sri Datuk Muhyiddin Yassin has proclaimed that the Pifzer and Moderna vaccines will arrive in Malaysia somewhere in February.
I am very thrilled and happy to hear this news I read that Japan, being a highly advanced, loving and very well-mannered superpower and country is going to be clinically testing these vaccines for three months, (wherever these vaccines are obtained from) to see if the vaccines are suitable for people with underlying health problems like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, liver, kidney and/or those on dialysis treatments as well as those who already have cancer cells or chemotherapy are suitable to be injected with all these vaccines as it is a new and untested vaccine.
I would like to suggest to the public that they buy medical health insurance policies in case they encounter are any side effects after vaccination.
Why hasn’t the former US President Donald Trump, leader of the free world, take the vaccination himself? This would reassure the whole world that these vaccines are safe and secure?
We must remember that Dr Anthony Fauci, an expert on infectious diseases, also mentioned that the immune durability and the life span of of these vaccines is only one year or less whereby we need to take the jab once a year.
I did some research on the immunity period for Moderna and found that it is only 119 to at most, half a year meaning that we have to rejab once half/one year.
This would be a very costly protocol for most world governments as they need to be inoculated every six months or one year.
I will take the vaccine myself, but not before showing the doctor my blood tests results.
What I also need to know is that after one year, if I failed to take the second series of inoculation, will it be detrimental to my health?
It would be nice if Dr Anthony Fauci can shed light on these concerns of mine.
Anyway, have a great 2021 but at the same time I am encouraging people to take the vaccines. If they are unsure about it, they should consult their doctors.
