Almost certainly. What's the worst that could happen?




I get the flu shot every year and I haven't gotten the flu in decades. Common colds? Yes, at least one per year.

Yes....After I feel comfortable seeing others getting the vaccine and time passes with no bad Iíll effects. Iím certainly not rushing to get a vaccine that equals huge payouts to the first one to put one together. Sounds like a bad recipe. We canít even seem to get the testing thing down.

It depends on how it manufactured. To me, it is all about ethical considerations and personal conviction. If it developed on any of the fetal cell lines, then I will not get it.

But, this is not a one time vaccine. Unless they do something revolutionary, there will have to be more vaccines down the road as mutations occur.

I think this is what people have a hard time with. Some folks think they get a vaccine and this goes away. This will most likely be very much like a flu vacine ( not comparing Covid to the flu just the vacine) unless Something revolutionary happens as you said.

Maybe. Iím not too worried about it. If Iím at the Dr and they offer it and my insurance will cover it or cost is cheap, Iíll get it. Iím not going to go out of my way to get it. The virus does have a 99% survival rating. If I had underlying issues, I would likely get it. Iíll just be glad when people quit being so scared and freaking out.

Same for me. I will not have my kids get it unless they need it for sports or school.

This is about how I feel. I'm at almost zero risk; might as well let other people take it and see what happens to them. I'm not in any rush; there are practically no cases here, and fewer all the time.

Will I still have to wear a mask and not shake people's hands after I'm vaccinated?

If it's a live vaccine, no way. Also, remember coronaviruses have been around for over 70 years. To date, there have been zero successful vacinnations for any coronavirus. The gave up after 10 years trying to come up with one for SARS-1. I wouldn't hold my breath.

Negative. I'm not taking any sort of medical treatment that has been rushed to market. Especially since my life is not statistically in imminent danger.

Actually following SARS they did develop a vaccine, but the virus burned out so there was no need to spend money on going to trials. Trials are the costliest part of development of the vaccine. The reason why they were able to develop a vaccine so quickly is because they pulled the SARS vaccine off the shelf and repurposed it. This isn't as rushed as some would think.

Personally, I will get the vaccine...like I've done with every other, and I'm still here with no issues.

The planning phase has already begun for manufacturing, storage, and administering it. I was on a call last week detailing the process. It will be interesting and it will keep me very busy.
