Covid vaccines

In response to whether or not I would take a covid vaccine when available, the answer is YES!

By the time the vaccine gets to people like us, tens of millions of people will have been vaccinated and we'll have months to see the results and make a more educated decision about it.

Live your life, but, don't infect us if you decide not to get it.

I have a 50 year work history, and retired at the end of April this year (2020). Normally, after retirement, you are pretty much free to do as you please, go where you want to go, and basically just live your life as you wish. Of course this year has NOT been a "Normal" year, as we all know. Even though I'm retired now, I somewhat feel like I'm "under the gun" to protect myself from exposure to the Covid 19 and thus, possibly affecting my quality of life in the retirement years. So having said that, I will get the vaccine just as soon as it is available for me, in hopes of getting some semblance of "Normal" back into my life.

Heck, I'd even stand in line for one. I don't think folks realize what an accomplishment this vaccine is. It's the medical equivalent of the effort industry made to manufacture equipment in WWII. Yes there will be people who have a bad reaction to the vaccine and they will be heavily covered by our news media. But the odds and consequences of a bad reaction are minimal compared to the disease.

Looks like the UK will be distributing the Pfizer version - same as ours - starting in January.

We'll be able to watch their experience and make our decisions with some data available.

I'll be right behind you.

I think the risk (for me) of getting Covid and not doing well are greater than the risk from the vaccine. Based on no particular knowledge of disease and vaccines, other than I'm at an elevated risk for Covid on several counts, as is DW.

If the vaccine is so valuably that you want to get it, why would you be concerned about getting infected from someone who doesn't get it?

Considering that it will take many months for a large percentage of the population to receive the vaccine then in the meantime those that won't get it will still be infecting people.
If someone doesn't want to get the vaccine then they should respect others that do and give them some space.

Yeah, sign me up. I have sufficient confidence in the years of work to develop vaccines for other coronavirus strains has been done correctly and that those foundational developments have already been subject to scrutiny.

I'd like to hold out for the Moderna vaccine but I doubt I'll have a specific choice when my turn comes. No matter which 'flavor', I'm ready.

That said, I fully understand those who would like to wait and see. I hope things work out and that waiting does not result in infection.

On the news this morning, they said once you get the first dose, it takes 10-14 days for it to ramp up, then once you get the second dose, it takes about 9 days to complete the effect. If you look at your white blood cells as an army, it's like training the troops for battle. Instead of being ambushed by the virus, it's like "hey, we've seen this guy before, lets attack" I'm going stir crazy too; spending too much time on the computer. Too cold to do much for very long outside. Winter is never a good time for me even in normal times. Can't wait for that vaccine. Most of us will have minor symptoms after the vaccine. That's how you know it's working; stuff like headache and maybe body aches. Sore arm for sure probably, but a small price to not end up in the ICU.

This is not your typical vaccine. It's an mRNA construct, and pharma are still infants in this arena. I have concerns over long term regulation of our immune system and am cautious when gene regulation is involved. I've had covid and it was extremely mild. You all get the vaccine. I'll see how you all fare on this one. The regular flu, however, flattens me, so I'll get that vaccine.
