    Yes, it is common sense and my social duty to accept the vaccine when offered. I do not want to catch Covid-19, nor be a burden on our overstretched health services, nor pass Covid to anyone else. The vaccines are safe.

    Nope. Doctors have even come forward with the flu shot, saying that even if you take the shot, you'll still get the flu, so there is absolutely no point in me getting this vaccine.

    Why I won't take the covid vaccine anytime soon:

    1. It is NOT approved by the FDA

    2. We don't know how covid immunity works, so we can't have a vaccine that creates immunity.

    3. We know that the vaccine is NOT mimicking the T/B cell changes that occur in the body during recovery from covid.

    4.There are ZERO reports, since the public began getting the vaccine, that the vaccine is actually stopping people from getting covid.

    5. I don't pretend that testing for 3 months on 22500 people is the same as testing for 5 year on 16000 people

    6. When I was having a one-on-one conversation with the Director of Infectious Disease at a leading US Medical School he tells me that we should be cautious about covid treatment that has EAU (emergency authorized use).  And I respond but the vaccines have the same EAU why should we be supportive of that -- and literally can't think of a single thing to say....

    7. the mRNA vaccine technology has failed for the last 15+ years but worked in 3 months?  Sure... that's make it feel safe.

    8. The "government" wants us to ignore the side effects:

    1 in 7500 people have severe allergic reactions vs 1 in 135000 people to the flu vaccine

    There is an 75% increase in Bells Palsey cases from the vaccine than occur in the general public.

    9. Obviously, our leaders don't expect it to work.  If they did, then after getting the 2nd vaccine you should be able to get antibody testing to opt out of all the restrictions, but that's not even a "thing". 

    There are other vaccines in the pipeline.  As each one is released we can evaluate whether this is the one that would make sense for us.

    In the meantime - there are some basic things we can all do:

    - have Vitamin D sufficiency is a big factor in not getting covid and having better covid recovery, if you do get covid.

    - avoiding close contact with people (inside for 15+ minutes during a 24 hour period) = almost all covid transmission occurs in this situation. 

    - spend most time outside when others (95% of covid transmission occurs inside).

    I just took the 1st dose the other day and have had no incidents whatsoever. My wife also received it and has a mildly sore arm and is otherwise good. With over 400K dead Americans, COVID is a killer and to not take it is foolish.

    Of course I will take it.  I have no reason to fear it, and if we can get on with a normal life again, I am willing to do my part.
