Will you take a covid vaccine?
 
For me, it really depends on the type of vaccine it is. There are quite a few different promising candidates right now. Regardless, this vaccine will be the fastest created ever.

I think Iím about 60-40 that Iíll take it. It would sure be nice to be able to get back out in the world in a normal fashion again...

Not for a long time. I'm 40, no co-morbidities, and am working 99% from home. They'll want to guinea pig the old folks first. Why risk side effects or even the wait in line?

We all may be gone before it gets here listening to most of these replies/reports.

Jughed 07-16-2020 06:32 AM

Yes. 100% without a worry.

I'm T2 - very well controlled, but I don't want to chance getting it. But I also have to travel/fly often, and I wont live like a hermit for the next 2 years.

I know I've been exposed multiple times via travel & the office prior to shutdown & may have had a light case of it... I will get the antibody test someday - but I will get the vaccine.

Hell no

Sittin' Low 07-16-2020 06:40 AM

Nope.

Team Rock On 07-16-2020 06:43 AM

Things might get interesting if they require teachers and students get the vaccine before being allowed back to school....

ecjcrown 07-16-2020 06:47 AM

Polio is proof that the vaccine won't work.

msh0146 07-16-2020 06:48 AM

100.0% yes. Type 1 diabetic here.

Contrary to popular belief on this board and elsewhere, many high risk individuals didn't "do it to themselves."

Foregoing the vaccine would be the height of foolishness for me. If I could volunteer for a trial, I would.

nicecast 07-16-2020 06:48 AM

If the FDA and CDC say I should, I will.

For over 50 years I've enjoyed protection against polio, measles, yellow fever, and many other terrible diseases thanks to American ingenuity and mandatory inoculations. It would be the height of stupidity to delude myself into thinking I know better.

Oh man. People are ready to march on capital here in my state with pitchforks and torches just for suggesting that theyíre thinking about mandating masks.

I canít imagine the reaction if they did that.

skibum 07-16-2020 06:50 AM

No.

Snow Shovel 07-16-2020 06:50 AM

It would take a while before I had any confidence in a vaccine.

When I get the flu vaccine I always get the flu within two or three days. Then, I might get the flu later in the season too. So right now I am not wild taking a brand new vaccine.

meritmat 07-16-2020 06:51 AM

Yup.

Sooner I get the vaccine the sooner life can go back to normal

mikefloyd 07-16-2020 06:53 AM

I'm leaning toward yes but need more information. To get the virus under control we need herd immunity which means either people recover from the virus or get the vaccine to stop the spread. I would rather be in the second group. But want more information on who develops the safest vaccine and the results of the first round of use.

You can sign up right here. They need 30,000 volunteers...

Until proven otherwise, the cure could be worse than the cause.

InTheNet 07-16-2020 06:56 AM

most likely I will.

treadlife 07-16-2020 06:57 AM

A brand new vaccine rushed to the market, what could possibly go wrong??????

Hell no!

68 years old never had the flu shot and haven't had the flu in over 30 years. If the china virus vaccine is proven to be successful in something over 50%-60%, may consider it, otherwise will just keep taking my 10-15 vitamins
