Alexandra Cane has revealed she will not be getting the Covid-19 vaccine, hitting back at criticism by saying she is ‘not being silenced’.
The former Love Island star, 29, took to Instagram on Thursday to share her thoughts on the subject, before defending herself in a subsequent post on Friday.
In her original post, she said of the vaccine, “I had some questions about the injection, so I thought I’d share my perspective…

“Personally I won’t get it because it’s still in the experimental stages and I have no idea about the after-effects.
“I am a sovereign being who has the basic human right to decide what I think is best for my body. (Just like you).’
She added: “I choose not to inject something I don’t have a lot of information about, nor do I want to follow because others do.
‘Follow your intuition. Do what’s right for you. & Keep in mind that the mass media is just one story.’

After apparently getting a backlash for her decision not to get the vaccine, Alexandra said in an incoherent post, “Don’t make people feel guilty about choosing YOU. It’s not selfish’
After apparently getting a reaction for her decision not to get the vaccine, Alexandra said in an incoherent post: “Following yesterday…I’m entitled to my own opinion, just like you.
“People call me brave because most live 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 suit you.
“Don’t make yourself feel guilty about people choosing YOU. It’s not selfish. We must hold ourselves accountable for our own life choices.
Thoughts: Alexandra continued, “I am a woman. WOMB-one. My womb is my life force. My womb creates new life’
Rambling: Alexandra added, “I’m not judging either one. I will not let this cause be divided. Love unites us all. We are a’
“That might upset some, it might empower others… anyway… I won’t be silenced.”
Alexandra then discussed her thoughts on the human body’s immune system, claiming that it naturally fights infections and bacteria and suggesting that it is stress that causes it to stop working effectively.
She told fans she believed that “mind and body are connected and find energetic balance in the vessel made up of trillions of cells,” and “breathing” was one way to prevent stress from affecting 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 if you want to use it.
‘I am a woman. WOMB-one. My womb is my life force. My womb is creating new life.
“There’s no data available to show me what potential effects it could have on fertility, so I’ll choose not to take something I don’t have much information about.”
‘I am by no means judging. I will not let this cause be divided. Love unites us all. We are a.’
Having two doses of a Covid vaccine reduces the risk of being hospitalized with the Indian variant by 93 percent to less than one in a thousand, but unvaccinated people are at higher risk than in previous waves.

Figures from Public Health England show that only seven of 9,427 people infected with the new strain were hospitalized, even though they had received 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 hospitalization with the new strain may be 2.6 times greater than with the Kent variant.
Despite the rise in the number of cases, scientists and ministers will draw confidence from data from Public Health England that last night suggested that only one in 1,400 people have so far been hospitalized after being given the new variant after taking two jabs. doses – the risk appears to be 10 times lower than for unvaccinated people.
Medical News: It was reported on Friday that having two doses of a Covid vaccine lowers the risk of hospitalization with the Indian variant by 93 percent
Promising numbers show that only seven of 9,427 confirmed cases spent the night in hospital despite two shots – just 0.07 percent – compared with 90 who had not been vaccinated (0.95 percent).
One dose reduces the risk by about three quarters, to one in 400 from one in 100, but does not offer as much protection as being fully vaccinated.
Unvaccinated people are at higher risk for Covid than the old variant, PHE has confirmed, as it spreads up to twice as fast – so they’ll be more likely to get infected – and the risk of hospitalization appears to increase to 2.6 times.
