Adam has not yet received the covid vaccine due to the “severe panic” he experiences every time he tries.

Adam really wants to get vaccinated against covid-19, but an extreme fear of needles paralyzes him.

The 23-year-old from Gainsborough, in the center-east of the United Kingdom, says that it is not the pain that he is afraid of but the idea of ​​the injection itself as the needle pierces his skin.

“It feels like the world is going to end”, describe Adam.

“It feels like you have no outlet, you can’t do anything, your heart rate hits 200, you can’t concentrate. It’s a pathological fear of needles“, Add.
