Flu vaccine has much lesser efficacy than that(I think 20-50%).WHO/FDA recommended earlier 50% efficacy for Covid would be enough.Though more the better.

You are going to have to either back this up or retract it (and never make such claims in the future at risk of being banned). You can't use the excuse of some kind of risk to personal security/anonymity to avoid doing this.

Fake news is likely to be causing people from ethnic minorities to reject the Covid vaccine, a doctor has warned.

A recent poll, commissioned by the Royal Society of Public Health, ... found 57% of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people said they would take the vaccine - compared with 79% of white people.

go read previous post i sended...

if you like to blame people then tell that to the people who create videos and post it on youtube where they act like being serious ill caused by the covid 19 vaccine

not to the people who talk facts... and in my personal opinion i think that my own country (the Netherlands) is doing it the best compared to the rest of the world...

in my country lots refuse to take one and those are  FACTS!! and they arent the cause of fake news.. if you want to blame go blame the united states who are making dramatic videos on youtube like they are almost dieying of the vaccine.. 

 

edit.. i start to realize i wasnt tagged in it..but i thought it was meant to me because i said "in my country lots refuse to take one"

but if it is for public then ignore my post .. because I thought it was meant for me

i dont know where you get it from... we have euthanasia only with rules.. if it happens not according to it then the doctor has huge consequentes, including losing it job and geting infron of the judge..

detailed answer from dutch government:

Euthanasia is a criminal offense Ending someone else's life is a criminal offense. Even if the patient asks for it from the doctor. Sometimes people don't want to live anymore. For example, because they are seriously ill, suffer pain or have difficulty breathing. Sometimes a doctor is allowed to perform euthanasia or assisted suicide. For example if someone does not get better. Or when there is nothing left to do about the suffering. Art is not punishable if it adheres to all 6 requirements of the law. These 6 requirements together are called the due care requirements. This is stated in the euthanasia law. Only the patient can request

euthanasia Euthanasia is only possible if the patient asks for it himself. Family or friends of the patient cannot ask for it. That is different with children. If a child is between 12 and 16 years old, the parents or guardian must also give permission. If a child is between 16 and 18 years old, the parents must be involved in the decision.

What conditions can euthanasia be used for? Most people who request and receive euthanasia are so seriously ill that they do not get better. A person does not almost have to die before euthanasia is allowed. By law, euthanasia is only allowed for people with a medical cause.

For example: a psychiatric condition; Dementia; more than 1 serious condition.

Doctor does not have to cooperate with euthanasia No one is entitled to euthanasia by law. A doctor may therefore also refuse a request for euthanasia. Even if the patient has written down what he wants. Or if the patient's situation meets all the requirements of the law. If a doctor does not want to perform the euthanasia himself, he must always tell the patient this. Then the patient can go to another doctor. Sometimes the doctor sends a patient to the Euthanasia Expertise Center. People can go here with a euthanasia request if their own doctor or GP is unable or unwilling to carry out the request. The patient's request must meet all due care criteria.

scource:https://www.rijksoverheid.nl/onderwerpen/levenseinde-en-euthanasie/euthanasie

summary: soo it has strict rules in it, and people aren't getting it easily .. also its the patient who decides if he/she wants to take it or no, elsewhere a doctor isn't allowed to prescribe it

obviously the admin can delete this post..

i already explained you what the rule of euthanasia is in my country.... i sended you the link of the dutch government (100% authentic)

the patients are the ones who chose themselves if they want to get euthanasia or not elsewhere it isnt allowed to take it..hard to understand??? 

i have seen lots sunni who also are choosing themselves to get threatened with euthenasia (yet they know its haram).. soo whats youre point?

There, that wasn't so hard was it? The sky did not fall in just because you revealed that you are from the Netherlands and it was healthcare worker opinion from that country you were referring to.

I don't need to make any excuses. 

If you make posts about this issue without supporting evidence you'll be called out on it.  If you don't like that approach we can try another, we'll just hide your post that does not have supporting evidence so that you can repost with such evidence.

i will make a whole topic about it and there are lots sources..somewhere near February and march you will see yourself..

and about heakthcare.. in my country even doctors,people from the medical lab, nurses,nurse-assistants,nurse scientists,medical scientists are falling all under it..

youre question was to show you, scources that lots heathcare worker in my country arent taking it... soo i showed you

if you want scources why the reason is why waay to many healthcare worker including docors are againt vaccins is a whole different question and as what i just say there will come another topicbout it with authentic scources..about what exactly vaccins are and their ingrediants and where they come from/who invented it....
