Love Island's Alexandra Cane says she won't get the Covid-19 vaccine

Love Island star Alexandra Cane says she will not be getting the Covid-19 vaccine and hits back at criticism as she claims she ‘won’t be silenced’

Alexandra Cane has revealed she won’t be getting the Covid-19 vaccine, and hit back at criticism by saying she ‘won’t be silenced’.

The former Love Island star, 29, took to Instagram on Thursday to share her thoughts on the subject, before then defending herself in a further post on Friday.

In her original post, she said of the vaccine: ‘Had some questions regarding the injection so thought I’d share my perspective…

‘I personally will not be getting it as it is still very much in the experimental stages & I have no idea of the after effects. 

‘I am a sovereign being who has the basic human right of deciding what I believe is best for my body. (As are you).’

She added: ‘I choose not to inject something that I have not much information of, nor do I wish to follow suit just because others are. 

‘Follow your intuition. Do what’s right for you. & Be mindful that the mass media is just one narrative.’

Choices: Alexandra explained, ‘I personally will not be getting it as it is still very much in the experimental stages & I have no idea of the after effects’

After apparently receiving backlash for her decision not to get the vaccine, Alexandra said in a rambling post: ‘Don’t let people make you feel guilty about choosing YOU. It is not selfish’

After apparently receiving backlash for her decision not to get the vaccine, Alexandra said in a rambling post: ‘Following on from yesterday… I’m entitled to my own opinion, as are you. 

‘People calling me brave because most are living in fear… let me say this… Do what works for you. 

‘I’m just reminding you that you have a CHOICE and don’t deserve to be bullied into getting something that doesn’t resonate for you. 

‘Don’t let people make you feel guilty about choosing YOU. It is not selfish. We need to hold ourselves accountable for our own life choices.

Thoughts: Alexandra went on, ‘I am a woman. WOMB-an. My womb is my life force. My womb creates new life’

Rambling: Alexandra added, ‘I do not judge either way. I will not let this cause divide. Love unites us all. We are one’

‘That may upset some, it may empower others… either way… I won’t be silenced.’

Alexandra then went on to discuss her thoughts on the human body’s immune system, claiming it naturally fights infections and bacteria and suggesting that it is stress that causes it to stop working effectively.

She told fans she believed ‘the mind and body are connected and finding energetic balance within the vessel that is made up of trillions of cells’, and ‘breathwork’ was a way to stop stress from impacting the immune system.

The reality star went on to say: ‘I’m not responsible for your choices. YOU ARE. I’m just reminding you that you have one should you wish to use it.

‘I am a woman. WOMB-an. My womb is my life force. My womb creates new life. 

‘There is no data available to show me what potential effects it could have on fertility so I will choose not to take something on which I have little information on.

‘I do not judge either way. I will not let this cause divide. Love unites us all. We are one.’

Having two doses of a Covid vaccine slashes the risk of being admitted to hospital with the Indian variant by 93 per cent to less than one in a thousand but unvaccinated people are at a higher risk than in earlier waves.

Public Health England figures show just seven out of 9,427 people to have been infected with the new strain were admitted to hospital even though they had had two doses of a vaccine.

By comparison, 90 unvaccinated people were admitted in the same time and PHE warned in a report last night that the risk of admission to hospital with the new strain may be 2.6 times higher than it was for the Kent variant.

Despite the surge in cases, scientists and ministers will draw confidence from Public Health England data that last night suggested just one in 1,400 people have ended up in hospital so far after catching the new variant having had two jab doses – the risk appears 10 times lower than it is for unvaccinated people.

Medical news: It was reported on Friday that having two doses of a Covid vaccine slashes the risk of being admitted to hospital with the Indian variant by 93 per cent

Promising figures show just seven people out of 9,427 confirmed cases spent the night in hospital despite having had two jabs – only 0.07 per cent – compared to 90 who were unvaccinated (0.95 per cent).

One dose reduces the risk by about three quarters, to one in 400 from one in 100, but doesn’t offer as much protection as being fully vaccinated.

Unvaccinated people will be at a higher risk from Covid than they were with the old variant, PHE has confirmed, because it spreads up to twice as fast – so they will be more likely to get infected – and appears to increase the risk of hospital admission by up to 2.6 times.
