Watching news tonight they are all speculating as to who the first people will be to get the vaccine. the answer is simple.......The MP's
Note the bolded and especially underlined bit.
I`ll be glad to wait until the first million have been used as a trial ...... ! ..
see what happens to them.... some complain of severe headaches, body aches, and severe flu symptoms.. but they don`t say how long they lasted... so .. I`m going to stay "confined to barracks" for now ! ! ..

Well the obvious one for me would be anyone who works for the emergency services.
When I have had to deal with the police, for reasons I won't go into here (but that is a day I'd rather forget trust me!) they have been fine. It was nothing dodgy on my part, honest guv 😉
Doing my best to encourage everyone else to have it.......
That way no need for me to have it...
I by no means have a Biology degree, but I would have thought that isn't the case?
AFAIK (and all that) a vaccine works by injecting your body with dead cells so (a) They're dead so it doesn't harm you, and (b) Your body thinks it is real, so your immune system tells it to get lost?
So if I had it and passed it onto you, your body can't fight it off like someone else's may be able to.

That's just it - if you have had the vaccine then you wouldn't be in a position to pass the infection on as the it would never have taken hold enough to become contagious.
Gleneagles point (tongue in cheek acknowledged) is that not everyone needs to be vaccinated in order to reach sufficient herd immunity (i.e. enough people that are immune such that it is hard for the virus to propagate). However, it is not a perfect science and varies due to many factors, and if too many take the decision to be one of the non-vaccinated then the whole approach obviously breaks down regardless.

Fair enough @MJN
I assumed any vaccine wouldn't do that, so I could still pass it on to someone else. It might not affect my body that much if I had it, but someone else's it could.
I assumed it wouldn't stop the spread, just how it affects people.
