If the worry is others getting sick, then wouldn’t the best protection be they get the vaccine?

I'm young and healthy. Im not nervous about getting sick myself, but my folks aren't. I don't want to be responsible for getting them sick when I could get the vaccine and protect others from myself.

If you aren't afraid of the virus, you shouldn't be afraid of the vaccine. I constantly hear people talk about 99+% survival rates. Well guess what? The vaccine has a 99+% survival rate too!
SMH, you should read up and understand this vaccine before you make such statements.

THIS. The biggest disgrace happening in modern times is that I am somehow responsible for YOUR safety or health. Sorry, your fat immunocompromised cheeseburger eating a$$ is not my concern. Why should I jeopardize my health for your safety? No thanks. No vax for me. I’m naturally immune from the virus.

Nah. Not until it's required by law or for employment purposes. Anyone who trusts big pharma on a rush job probably hasn't been on the planet long enough to know better.

I'll "believe in the science" of mRNA vaccines after a double-blind 10 year longitudinal study is completed on actual humans. Not before.

There's no "moral obligation" for this; OLD PEOPLE GET THE VACCINE FIRST. They'll be immune long before any of us get the vaccine. There's a term for this kind of posturing... it's called "cheap grace".

Young people do fine, and kids are statistically speaking, unaffected. I'm totally fine if anyone wants to take their chances with the 'rona. My body, my choice and all.

You may want to do the same. There’s a lot of articles and interviews out there with medical personnel explaining how vaccines work and why pfizer and moderna saying the CYA statement of “We don’t know yet” doesn’t equal “it doesn’t”.

I almost had the chance to get the vaccine last night. My sister is a Pharmacist. They were scheduled to vaccinate a nursing home yesterday, but for whatever reason, that didn’t happen so they had 50 or so doses that needed to be used because they had already been taken out of the refrigerator so she called me and asked if I wanted one. By the time I got back o her, the sign up sheet had been filled so no vaccine for me. I’m not worried about the vaccine. If that’s the price of admission to the rest of my life, so be it.

I will only get the Moderna vaccine though. I know they have special equipment to monitor temperature during shipping, but if the Pfizer vaccine thawed out during shipping, and I get a bad dose, I can’t go back and get the Moderna one after that. The second dose would give me some protection, but not the same protection 2 good doses would have. The idea that big pharma caused this virus, all in the name of profits, would be impressive if true. If they did, why didn’t they have the vaccine ready to go 10 months ago though? They didn’t have to wait for millions to die before bringing the vaccine to market. They lost Millions of potential customers. And if China created this virus as a bio weapon, you’d think they would have had a vaccine ready, at least for their people, before releasing it on the world.

What are you referring to specifically?

I've read a ton about it.

Already got it. Researched it, know plenty of people in medicine, some actually involved in the Pfizer trials and far and away all support it. I’m healthy, one of my main concerns w\ COVID was the clotting issues arising afterwards. Especially as pilots we should be concerned with this.

Big pharma doesn’t make their money off of vaccines.
