Iíve been exposed to it multiple times for prolonged durations and never got it (Nursing home and doctors office). Not to mention Iíve traveled and worked a lot. Also, I eat well and take care of myself, so your body tends to be able to fight things off naturally without the need for chemicals. I know thatís a hard concept for most to grasp.

Already got it. So far no third arm or glowing urine. Think Iíll be just fine. I just want to live in a world where I can once again smell the sweet Austrian Oak burning in fireplaces while I stroll freely to my schnitzel spot.

Maybe you also have O-type blood which they say can help. We got it in our household, three of us tested positive, thankfully with mild symptoms, and two negative. We didnít isolate from each other because by the time we see suspected anything it was already more than a week. You just canít tell how this thing moves.

If I were vulnerable I would definitely get the vaccine and be protected, but I would not demand others do the same for my safety.

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!
I'm not trying to knock you off of your soapbox, but with you being young and healthy you'll be the one of the last ones to be offered the vaccine. And by then I would hope that everyone who is NOT low risk will have already had the vaccine and therefore you won't be much of a danger to anyone at that point. I think the whole point of offering the vaccine to the young and healthy is to get us closer to herd immunity.

Thank you. Thatís all I argue for, is to be able to have a choice.

That's fair. I will be one of the later ones to be able to get it. But, there's a lot of people who won't get it, and I will. To protect others. I believe it's a moral responsibility to not spread a disease for which there is a vaccine.

I'll get it, but I'll be in the back of the line. I'd like to see how others respond to it first.

That depends on where youíre at. In my state, as flight crew/transportation worker, I will be eligible when the next tier (1b) starts in about a week. Right up there with people 65 and older.
