COVID 19 VACCINE

May 27, 2021 1:43am CST
I would like to know what's your opinion about the covid vaccine? Would you trust it and get vaccinated or not? People are getting vaccinated here in our country but my parents (who are senior citizens) are against it. What are your thoughts?

Well, it's everyone's personal choice. If they want they can get vaccinated or not. like me, first I wasn't sure about it and then after seeing that everyone around me my friends and my family was getting vaccinated so, I decided to get myself vaccinated too.

Yes it's a personal choice however, Im quite disappointed that it is not a mandatory thing to do but some companies require their employees to get vaccinated. Is it against our human rights?

I got mine at the earliest opportunity and had no reaction to either of the two shots. My wife and daughter did too. I am a senior citizen too.

Of all the people I know personally, there is only one person who won't/doesn't want to get it and that's not for any reason that can't be debunked. There are conspiracy theories, of course, but I trust that our health care workers wouldn't give something that wasn't safe. There are some possible side effects, just as there are with any other medical treatment, but serious side effects are extremely uncommon. I'd rather have the vaccine than the disease anyway.

Yes, they are against it because of the conspiracy theories regarding the vaccine such as it is the start of 666 in the Bible.

@Ielky16 that's a new conspiracy to me! I've heard/read several but no Bible ones!

I'd probably get it, I am just worried for my parents because some of the side effects are severe.

Well the only thing that I can say is that we should be ready with precautionary measures and if taking vaccine is one of them then we must take it soon as possible. At least in the back of our mind we will have this thought that we gave our level best to fight from this vaccine.

yes, I believe that vaccine is really needed to fight the virus. It's just that I just can't shrug off some conspiracy theories regarding the vaccine..

I'm not 100% comfortable with the idea, especially seeing what happened with the Johnson and Johnson vaccine... there were a few people locally who had some of the really awful reactions to that one after getting it, and at least one of them that I know of is still out of work and recovering from the blood clots. Still going to get it, though, because herd immunity is important and both the Moderna and Pfizer versions are available here. I'll probably do my first dose early next week. I would have done it already, but with the side effects from the second dose being a bit more severe I wanted to time the first so I could receive the second during the week my husband is taking off work in July.

Yes, herd immunity is really important. I just hope I wouldn't get awful reactions once I got vaccinated too. Anyways, good luck on your first dose.

If you don't have a serious underlying medical problem it is better to get the vaccine. In Israel we only have to wear masks inside a building.

Don't think like idiots too, the vaccine is meant to prevent you from the disease; I hate those idiots who are spreading such ideas
