Freedom and vaccines

My own opinion is that we are facing a very real threat to our democratic freedoms.

These freedoms have been eroded under the cloak of Covid-19. We have a government pushing hard for 90 per cent vaccination while not giving people the choice of vaccine.

When governments mandate medical procedures they have stepped outside their jurisdiction, in the same way that politicians do not define military strategies in time of war.

These rightly belong to the medical professionals. Politicians are elected to serve all the people, not just some of the people. There is a minority group like the Mayor of Coromandel who has expressed her conscience choice to prefer Novavax.

This is a more traditional process used in its manufacture and has a higher efficacy factor. Given that the Government had placed orders for four vaccines Pfizer, Astra Zeneca, Janssen and Novavax, we have to ask why this government is determining our choice by only permitting Pfizer.

There are also medications like Molnupiravir and Ivermectin that inhibit the virus by acting as a prophylactic.

Is it because they have shares in Pfizer or is it part of their Marxist thrust to control choice?

Either way, we must resist their claims and demand our God-given freedoms of choice. Yes, I have had the jab.
