Dear NHS

I write in reply to the invitation I have received from you to come forward for a COVID-19 vaccination. Thank you for taking the time, energy, expense and resources to send me this letter but I am going to decline. Not that there is anything wrong with having a vaccine, I just don’t want one because I don’t believe I need one. If I do want one I will come to you and ask.

The reason is I’m alright. I’m fine. I don’t want anything from you because I don’t need anything from you right now. I get on with my life every day eating mainly clean food, drinking water, exercising, going out in daylight, working hard and when I’m finished with my day I get good sleep to restore may body and mind to make sure I am as ready as I can be to do the same thing again in the morning.

It’s a behaviour practice that works for me as it does many others so I’m going to continue to practice it for as long as I possibly can. It has given me a lot of success with my health so far and what’s more it’s made sure I never ever come anywhere near you to take up your time, energy and money. I don’t want to take up your time, energy and money, others less fortunate than myself can have it. One day, hopefully never, I might need you, god forbid should I ever be in an accident or suffer with any dreadful illness.

Currently though, I believe I have a fairly robust immune system that doesn’t need tinkering with because of the way I live my life. I trust in my immune system to fight off this virus you are warning me about.

I actually feel bad about taking up your time to read this reply but if I can be of any help at all then maybe I could suggest you give a little more guidance to some people by telling them how they might boost their own immune systems.

I’m not convinced that the directives to stay at home and cover your face is the best solution. There’s nothing in that message to improve our own health. Perhaps a little more along the lines of:

“If you know you could better your own health and relieve the pressure on the NHS then isn’t it about time you did it?

The world owes you nothing and we certainly don’t.

Eat real food, avoid takeaways, alcohol and cigarettes as much as possible. Get some exercise every day. Go out in the sunlight. Practice gratitude. Don’t think you are entitled.”

Maybe something like that would help?

And if your boss, the government, actually had some courage to stop the incessant fast food advertising that constantly streams our airwaves then maybe we could all do our bit to become fitter, healthier and happier to make sure a situation like this never arises again.

Kind Regards
