    A rushed vaccine when they haven’t developed a vaccine for AIDS, the common cold or the flu?
    Nope

    Absolutely not. Even bigger absolutely not if it’s mandated

    If the vaccine was ready by January, it would probably not be widely available for another 8-12 months after that.

    I would fight like hell to avoid my kids having it, while still being able to attend school. Having my children take an "unknown" vaccine for a condition that does not really affect children does not seem logical. (And yes I understand herd-immunity, but I also understand that children thus far seem to be poor vectors anyways).

    Being in health care, I would likely take it by the time it is available. I would be doing some reading before I do though.

    When engaging in medicine for any patient, I always look at the risk/benefit ration. The risk long-term damage to children (as we currently know) is low... And while some studies will be done, I doubt there will be extensive studies on children, and it will be impossible to predict any long-term effects...

    On the other hand, I am in health care. I am in a field in which I am in close contact with patients and thus putting myself and patients at risk with every encounter. The recent history of vaccines put on the market is low risk, so I would presume my risk is higher with the infection than with the vaccine.

    We should all, to some degree be weighing the risk/benefit ration, including the risk to others that we pose by taking or not taking the vaccine, based on the information available.

    I’ll pass on the vaccine. Flu, COVID, whatever. No.

    I was refused a Covid test back in April ,I am 65, diabetic, have COPD,and my Dr.told me I didnt meet the criteria. This was back when all those NBA players were getting tests.
    No test no vaccines.

    My Wife is high risk and so am I. Yes, I'll take it as soon as it's available. I would much rather wait a year though.

    Hell no! If I should catch the Kung Flu, my plan is to make my way to Berkeley and cough on every liberal I cross paths with. Especially the old ones!

    Likely won't know the possible long term effects before its available and I'll be nervous but I'll get it. I'm high risk (heart, asthma, type 2) I get the shingles vaccine and flu shots. Had both before no fun at all so I do what I can to avoid them.
