Are Vaccines That Safe? Experts Discuss 8 Popular Theories
Vaccines aren’t worth the risk
Like any other medical treatment, vaccines can bring a series of side effects. Additionally, some people may also experience allergic reactions. What some people fear most, though, are the potetial long-term negative effects of vaccination – even those that aren’t scientifically proven.
Sometimes these reasons may spark so much fear among people that they end up refusing to get vaccinated just because of what might happen if they do. This is the exact situation we’re in when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccines right now, which is slowing down the mass vaccination process a lot.
It’s true that the COVID-19 vaccines are all new and we’re still learning about their long-term effects on our immune system and overall health. However, there are plenty of other vaccines which have been administered for decades and there’s solid evidence suggesting they’re 100% safe for healthy individuals.
