If the benefits of vaccination are not in doubt at the level of society, everyone is free to choose whether or not to be vaccinated. This is still a matter of individual responsibility and freedom.
The question is topical because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the concerns about the serious side effects of the vaccine from AstraZeneca:
- Blood clots (thrombosis),
- High fever,
- Body aches,
- Dyspnea (difficulty breathing).
If you do not want to be vaccinated or want to refuse a particular vaccine, the safest way to ensure that your wishes are respected is to prepare and sign a letter of refusal to be vaccinated and give it to someone you trust or to your doctor.
Sample letter of refusal of vaccination
<First and last name>
Subject: refusal of vaccination
I, the undersigned <Name and surname>, born on <Date of birth> in <City of the place of birth> and residing at <Address, zip code, and city of present residence> have read the benefits and risks of the vaccine <Name of vaccine> against Covid-19 and declare that I do not wish to be injected with this vaccine (<Name of vaccine>).
<City>, on <Date of day>,
<Name and first name>,
