Title. Not really comfortable with it because these vaccines are being pushed without any long-term studies and I've had bad experiences in the past. I'd rather take my chances especially since I'm fit and can look after myself, not to mention the survival rate (think it's 99.8-9% according to CDC) and experimental mRNA technology...
Are you able to object?

Side question - when yomping/tabbing, is it proper form to shuffle do you land on your forefoot to absorb impact?

There has been no recorded permanent side effects from any of the COVID vaccines, out of millions of people that have had them so far in this country alone. As for your question, I'm not sure but you might be forced to take vaccines at some point if you are heading to the jungle being an example. Hopefully trained ranks can answer your questions fully shortly

Hi,

This was covered quite recently and you may find this thread (linked below) useful. Comment #6 from @The guide addresses your question. Hope this helps.

Vaccines are safe, and you don’t want to transmit covid to someone who ends up on a ventilator.

Thankfully though, vaccines are our only hope to move on from the recent hell of lockdowns and the harsh infringement of our liberties.

My AFCO also mentioned that yellow Fever, hepatitis, and typhoid jabs will also be mandatory if deployed.

Putting it bluntly, anyone with genuine concerns about vaccines in general should have a good hard think about whether their individual beliefs are compatible with a service career.
Always better to make an informed decision.

Is having someone 'inserting' a vaccine into your body 100% safe- no. Probably 99.9999999 safe!

A RM career where people will be attempting to 'insert' any of the following - 9mm, 7.62mm, 5.56mm, .50 cal, mortar rounds, laser guided munitions.... 100% NOT SAFE.

Having a vaccine is about taking one for the team, i.e our society, to make it a safer place.

If you feel you don't need to do that as you will be OK anyway, how will you react when your Troop boss sends you out on the left flank to draw fire to enable the rest of your mates to succeed in taking the objective?

You have to take vaccinations depending on the country you are deploying to.
It’s compulsory. You even have to have a yellow fever passport for countries in Africa. It’s nothing new.

I'd gladly draw fire for comrades and I wouldn't conflate taking a jab in a chair like an obedient dog to listening to orders and risking your life in the field.

Vaccines aren't always safe and there is plenty of information online showing this fact. And the only way out of government mandated lockdowns? You're just parroting what the BBC says mate.
I don't mind the older vaccines as much. I should have stated SARS-CoV-2 vaccine in the original post.

Plenty of severe side effects already published as far as I know, along with minor ones. As I said, no long term studies because this is a rushed vaccine where vaccine companies are immune to being sued for malpractice.

Guys I meant the COVID vaccine, my bad. For reference my neighbour recently took one and a week later his foot has uncontrollable shakes and pain to boot. He's a tough bastard so I hope he'll pull through. And yeah you can say correlation doesn't necessarily mean causation, which is true. But he hasn't ever had anything like this so I need to draw rational conclusions.
It's tough. I'm looking forward to the career and lifestyle in the Navy but I was gifted the book "The Contagion Myth" by Thomas S. Cowan, MD and Sally Fallon Morell and now I'm deeply concerned about the whole charade and spiritually split.

23 million plus injections and counting (me included) not sure if your concerns are going to stand up against the obvious benefits to the wider population. Just my opinion

Terrible - there are as I write 125,464 people who I am sure would have swapped these side effects for still being on the planet.

My daughter had a pretty rough 24 hours after her first jab, her other option is living like a hermit or a very high probability of being connected to a ventilator and a probable exit stage left.

She took the feeling rough for a day - silly girl.......
