It's easy to be cynical and suspicious of anything to do with China, but to think that there is something sinister about the Chinese vaccine borders on paranoia.

So far NO one in the DR has been reported to have any serious side effects from the vaccine. NO one here has contracted the virus AFTER taking the vaccine. And anyone that does live here well knows that it would be all over the news if either one of those two happened..................

So the doom and gloomers from afar need to take a break...................

I studied the vaccine issue , was nervous... then looked at my immunization passport (yellow one) and saw the vast range of vaccines I had taken since 1997.
Suddenly I have no concerns about taking the Sinovac vaccine...

Exactly. Did anyone actually ask where the vaccines they had in the past came from?

Aside from childhood immunizations, what percentage of adults go through life reguarly receiving vaccines?
Not to mention, chronicling them?

I think the issue revolves less of where they come from and more the politics behind it all.
We have hit bottom when it comes to international trust of any kind.
The bigger the economy, the more they have to hide and protect from claims that could eventually risen from these “safe” emergency use shots...

I have a full book of extra vaccinations I got in the Military for my various foreign trips/adventures. I did famine relief in Ethiopia in 1988 and received a number of vaccines for protection against African diseases and parasites. Where the vaccines came from I haven't an idea.

Yes, understood.
But you must also admit that this is a special instance as you were a military member. Similar to myself with the UN.
But were we not the exceptions to the rule?
Has the normal, average, evrry day common person been injecting themselves with vaccines for decades?

Almost anyone that has done extensive travel has had vaccines as an adult on top of the flu shot.

I've a yellow vaccine record card that I've had and kept updated over the years. It's not at all uncommon where I've lived and for my generation and many others. Anyone (at least many if not most) born in the 50's through 70's at least had similar experiences and I would have thought it more widespread. North American and Europe and not at all just for those in the military. I did my bit but had my card and status updated while working in the broad "medical" field. I'm kind of shocked that it's not more common, of course it probably was not the norm in smaller, poorer countries like the DR.

I beg to differ, but we wear different glasses.

Chronicling vaccines are mandatory if leaving Canada and travelling to some specific destinations that have , for instance Yellow Fever. plague polio and many other serious diseases that could stop you in your tracks.... When I present my International Immunization Card to Immigration officials they actually read it then smile.
Also it eliminates a booster from Host country for Hapatitis, tetnus and other boosters that I cannot even pronounce.
So yes there are those whom travel the globe who find it necessary to both chronicle and present immunzation proof.

Has there been any report of a serious after effect from the Sinovac vaccine shots here? I have heard nothing, and when I got my first one absolutely no after effect at all. Get the second one Tuesday, so I will see what happens then. I expect nada.....................
I had an unusual craving for Chinese food but that was about it. I will let you know after my second shot on Tuesday if it happens again
