Anti vaccine

Brian from Papakura

I have a query for those that refuse the current covid vaccine. Are you anti vaccine and refuse any vaccine, or are you against the type of vaccine available in NZ, the mRNA one.
Would you be vaccinated if a non mRNA vaccine was available, as the usual annual flu vaccine is?
Some different types are here. www.healthcareitnews.com...
If you are against the mRNA vaccine only, would you all join together to lobby the government to buy in an alterative vaccine for you all, so enabling teachers, nurses, doctors etc to be vaccinated and stay safe and remain in their occupations.
