Politicians should be the first to take the vaccine...if they survive maybe we all will
If they don't survive maybe America will...!

I'll get .......... when it comes this way - but like you, gonna wait and see how it goes.

Kinda like buying the "newest" model of tractor or car - might have a few issues to solve!

anaphylaxis is not common with MOST shots....... however, if you look at other "shots" - typically a dr/nurse gives the first shot - to see if that person has any reaction to that shot.

even a allergy shot has that risk, and those that have a peanut allergy, those that have alpha-gal.....

that risk is even smaller than dying from getting the damn virus!!!!!!

How about the increased risk of getting HIV with the vaccine?

I suggest people get input from their own doctor and direct from sources such as Mayo and the CDC rather than headline-grabbing politically motivated financial bloggers (or tractor fan forums).

Now you're presuming CDC really knows what to say, and not change their mind? And remember, because your doctor says something doesn't make it so!! Would you like a first person example?

You might want to read this before you rush off to get the vaccine.

Okay, you take your chances and I'll take mine. If you don't like the link I posted I could find others for you, but I won't. you should do your own research. Don't let fear mongers control you.

Does anyone really know with less than 12 months of scientific effort - no. But weighing noted experts such as Mayo etc, experts in the relevant field, weighing multiple trained perspectives, actually reading the primary sources rather than the headlines or cherry-picked items in non-scientific blogs are all good steps to having the best-informed view you can have in any field with uncertainty. As for first-person testimony - such single data point anecdotes are usually the most misleading ones in any issue.

I don't need much to convince me that the vaccine is dangerous. I look at it from the perspective of one who actually went into anaphylactic shock from inoculations on two occasions. Once in January 1973 when I entered Basic Training in the Army and once again in August 1983 when I was given clindamycin during a surgery. I will always be a skeptic when it comes to injections of anything.

Considering the alternative, my wife and I will be getting it as soon as we can but, certainly not anywhere but at my doctors office which also happens to be at the hospital so if anything does happen, we are right there where it can be addressed promptly.

The alternative is this.. We personally know of 3 people who succumbed to Covid and none had 'underlying issues' either and a 4th who survived (but was on a ventilator and to this day is basically a non functioning human. Guy across the road contracted it on an Elk hunt and spent 3 weeks in bed and again, to this day, he's always tired and has no energy as it permanently damages your lung's ability to aspirate oxygen to sustain life.

Weighing the pro's and con's, we will get it as soon as we can. I don't like the flip side at all.

Besides, I'm getting tired of running around looking like a bank robber all the time...

I will say there is one good aspect of mask wearing and that is, if you are a gal and ugly, no one can tell... 😀

The CDC advice agrees that you as an individual should not get the vaccine due to a prior adverse vaccine reaction (the later antibiotic reaction is largely irrelevant to this discussion). But in no way does your personal unique (1 in a 10,000) experience with a different vaccine 50 years ago mean that this vaccine for a different virus using different technology 50 years later is "dangerous" for the other 9,999. They need to assess their own vaccine history and talk with their own doctor.

I'm in but pretty sure it won't happen anytime soon so plenty of time to change my mind. Judging from the amount of deaths due to the virus the odds are on the side of the vaccine right now.

Unless you have some comorbidities, you have nothing to worry about. The death rate is .002% and 80% of those are people over 65 with comorbidities.
