The anti-vaxxer, from Glasgow, made an eye-opening statement on her business Instagram page: “We will not treat anyone who has had a COVID-19 jab.” Sarah McCutcheon explained why she made this decision. “Many of my loyal, long-term clients follow a very natural path,” Sarah said. “And I want to ensure they feel safe in the environment that they come to relax in.”
Meanwhile, research conducted by Public Health England (PHE) demonstrated that the Covid jabs are effective against hospitalisation and deaths.
Two jabs of the Pfizer vaccine is 96 percent effective against hospitalisation from the Covid delta variant – the most dominant strain in the UK.
In addition, the AstraZeneca vaccine is 92 percent effective against hospitalisation.
Research published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) found that the Pfizer and AstraZeneca jabs were associated with:
- Reduction in symptomatic Covid
- Protection against severe disease.
Covid vaccine side effects
As with any type of vaccine, side effects are possible, but not everybody gets them.
“Most side effects are mild and should not last longer than a week,” the NHS said.
Common complaints include:
- A sore arm from the injection
- Feeling tired
- A headache
- Feeling achy
- Feeling or being sick.
“You may also get a high temperature or feel hot or shivery one or two days after your vaccination,” added the NHS.
More than 45 million people in the UK have now had their first Covid jab, the Government report shows.
The number of people who have had their second jab is creeping up towards 35 million.
The success of the vaccine programme has weakened the link between the number of Covid cases and the number of hospitalisations and deaths.
While the virus is infecting more people once again, the number of patients admitted to hospital and people now dying of Covid is not skyrocketing as it would if people were not vaccinated.
