I'm one of those people who will wait.before taking the Vaccine. I don't have problems with Vaccines. I'm just cautious about a Vaccine for a virus that they are still learning about and I'm concerned that the Vaccine development has been rushed. I keep hearing "Emergency Use" which has the feel that something isn't complete, but the company has permissions to use it as an emergency.If we have a vaccine that has gone through reliable protocols and is deemed safe, getting vaccinated is simply the right thing to do. Some people are already talking about how they won't take a vaccine at all, or that they will wait until they see whether it 'works' or not. I have nothing but scorn for anyone who sits on the sideline and waits for others to do the right thing, and I just hope that enough folks do the right thing to save these idiots from themselves, or at least keep their stupidity from infecting the rest of the country.
I would rather they follow the normal process. I look at how many side effects that medicine has after years of development, now we are going to skip additional years of development for emergency use? That's what doesn't sit well for me. All through my life, I've seen things go bad because someone, or some organization Rushed things.
For me there is a difference between picking up the pace and rushing to complete something. I'm fine with picking up the pace, but I really do not trust Rush Jobs.
Even in a medical emergency when everyone is in a hurry. That's fine. But don't rush. Mistakes usually happen when people Rush. I understand the business side of this as well where companies are also racing to be First to Market. That bothers me as well to.
We know that it's possible to greatly reduce the infection rate, we just need to do what's needed to accomplish that so that a quality vaccine can be developed.
