In efforts to encourage as many people to take the newly announced vaccines that have proved successful in preventing infections of COVID-19, Britain's Queen Elizabeth and a number of world leaders have announced plans to take the vaccine live on TV to end any suspicions of the vaccine's safety. Yet, many internet commentators don't seem convinced.

Last week, British authorities approved the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine for use across the country, with first dozes expected to be distributed next week. Considered the most important milestone in the efforts to end the coronavirus pandemic, the vaccines need to be taken by as many people as possible, so infection chances are minimized once and for all.
However, the long-standing anti-vaccine movement poses such a great challenge to hopes of eradicating the viral outbreak, especially as more and more people express worry that the vaccine might be a marketing stunt by pharmaceutical companies trying to make the best out of the global crisis.

Additionally, the vaccine news has sparked many conspiracy theories amongst anti-vaxxers, such as assumptions that side effects might impact fertility rates, especially as the UK's prescribing info include a warning for women to avoid pregnancy for two months following the injection.

For years, a growing number of people have been opposing vaccines, arguing it causes several disorders and health problems they don't wish to suffer from.
Commenting on the news of plans by the Queen of England, US former presidents in addition to the president-elect Joe Biden and his VP Kamala Harris, online users speculated that they will actually receive the vaccine, saying TV appearances might cover them taking placebos instead.
Every VIP who's vaccinated will almost certainly receive a placebo, as a bad reaction would sink the whole project.— UK Urbanite (@UKurbanite) December 6, 2020
