  • The Covid 19 Vaccine, will you be getting it and if so, when?

    Originally posted by xrox View Post

    I'd love to see a poll done here on TGN (not sure how to) on who will be getting the vaccine when it is available to them. With some discussion on why, or more interestingly, why not. I will be in line when my time comes but only if the safety and efficacy data stay as they are currently. From talking to others on this topic, I worry that the rush through clinical trials will scare a huge percentage away.

    The science of these new genetic mRNA vaccines, to be given to billions, is fascinating. Essentially instructing/disguising our own immune cells to look like a COVID virus. It looks to be groundbreaking in many areas of medicine, including cancer.

    Unfortunately it seemed to jog my memory of movies like Serenity, I am Legend, and World War Z, but I have WAAAYYY too active an imagination
    Your wish is my command! Hey guys might as well ask. I hope I cover enough options.

    I will get the vaccine ASAP available.

    I will get the vaccine after a period of time when it has been released and I feel it is safe
    21.28%

    I will wait for a long time to see how early adopters fare.

    I will not get the vaccine for personal reasons.

      Being a healthy male in his early 50’s I’m probably one of the Lowest priorities so will get it when it’s available to me

        Same, my expectation is my/our turn will probably be no earlier than late Fall 2021.

        A recent poll indicated that 70% of Canadians say they plan to get it. The number is ~40% in the US.

        as for antivaxers ......just put them on all the unused cruise ships and let them stay at sea.

          I voted C, wait for awhile. But not because I would be worried about the vaccine, but because the logistics of getting it to 35 million people will be daunting. I am not in a high risk group, but know others (like my siblings) who are and I would rather they get it ahead of me. However, I would have no hesitation about getting the vaccine.

            My wife is a nurse and will get it before me. As long as she doesn't grow and extra head or a tail, I'll get it as soon as the roll out includes me. I'm not in a high risk group but I can be a carrier, and so, though I'm not concerned about my own health, I'll get the vaccine so that I'm not an asymptomatic spreader.

              I will get the vaxine as soon as its available to me. I am glad the antivaxer movement is not as widespread in Canada. We are not big consumer of conspiracy theories as compared to Americans.

                I honestly can't find anything more of value to say. The previous posters have summed this up remarkably well.

                  I wonder if it will be mandatory for kids in school, but with an 'out' like other vaccines have. Or, will there by no opting out if attending in person.

                    Wow...this vaccine really is incredible. It's working magic and it's not even out yet!

                      That is the shortest answer I have ever seen AD give. It is magic!!

                        I am excited for a Vaccine but I won't be first in line for it. You first.
