Considering that the infection fatality rate is so low (I've read under 1%) I am not inclined to get the vaccine. My fear is that I have never had a flu vaccine, or any other vaccine for that matter, other than those given in childhood so I have no idea how my body might react now that I am over 60. I don't get the flu despite being exposed to people that do get it. I'm interested to see what happens as the vaccine is administered. According to the FDA, one of the long term side effects is Guillian Barre syndrome, brain swelling, muscle weakness and paralysis, convulsions and seizures, stroke, narcolepsy, shock, heart attack, autoimmune disease, arthritis and joint pain, and death. So not interested.

I formally studied holistic nutrition for 6 years and will continue nutritional and oxidative support to keep healthy. I stay away from people, wash my hands, and wear a mask in public.

Something that I think is interesting is that some people assume that if they are vaccinated they don't have to continue with protective measures. Fauci has acknowledged that the vaccine may prevent symptoms, but will not block spread of the virus. So going back to work we can expect to have to continue with masks, etc.

Something may change my mind in the future, but for now, it's a definite NO for me.

On the Net
TryingtoComply, the CDC site indicates that, "In 1976, there was a small increased risk of GBS after swine flu vaccination..." "The increased risk was approximately one additional case of GBS for every 100,000 people who got the swine flu vaccine." and "Studies suggest that it is more likely that a person will get GBS after getting the flu than after vaccination. It is important to keep in mind that severe illness and death are associated with flu, and getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent flu infection and its complications."

I'm not trying to sway your opinion as we can each have our own. But it's important to note that none of us are qualified in medical studies to offer too many opinions as fact. The best real statement I can make is that the vaccines have gone thru clinical trials and those are limited, even though they were scientific. Nobody knows the long term effect until we get long term. But we can each make our own choices based on the best information we have.

I am part of the higher-risk group, so I will be getting the vaccination as soon as it's available for my tier group.

I can see the benefits of the vaccine. I'm a fan of it. I can also see the hazards of it, therefore, I don't support it. However, with all of that said I am on the fence, although generally supportive of getting or not getting it.

I plan on lying. Feel great with it, although I may or may not have it.

To each his own - but if enough people refuse we will never get rid of this disease. We are going to have a hard enough time as it is because the longer we go the more variants it will produce and God help us when one of those variants is not only more contagious, but is also more deadly.

I just saw today that Boris Johnson announced that data is starting to show that the UK variant is more deadly than the original virus.

Yep! The only way to eradicate diseases is widespread vaccination.

Scheduled to get the vaccine and microchip implant this Thursday. Hoping they don't run us through a loading chute and brand us.

Funny, the day I posted this, my wife was diagnosed positive for COVID. Fortunately, her symptoms wound up being fairly mild. Definitely a blessing. I continued and still continue to test negative for the virus and negative for antibodies.

So glad Lynne had a mild case, Jim - and you continue to test negative.

I have recently recovered from covid and had pretty serious symptoms. Prior to being positive, I was unsure about the vaccine however, after experiencing this first hand, it is not something I care to repeat so when eligible, I will get the vaccine.

I had a similar situation, RV. My wife and my oldest son had COVID - thankfully both were mild. My daughter and I tested negative on 3 different doctor visits. Very strange how this disease can hit and miss like that.

Sorry you had a rough go of it - but certainly glad you've recovered. smile

I still do not plan on getting the vaccine - at least not right away when it becomes available to me. My very best friend is a NICU nurse and when I asked her what her thoughts were, she stated she would not be getting it. I am leery of it because of the quickness. Today she shared an article on FB about the side effect of masses on the breast. A friend of hers is now having to have biopsies due to these masses and has been in extreme pain. Hopefully they are not cancerous. I'm providing the link not as a deterrent, just as extra information. I would never tell anyone not to get it, especially those of you who have had Covid. I've had multiple friends who have had it and my brother also had it, my husband and I have either been very lucky or had it and never knew we had it. It is an all around scary situation we find ourselves in. frown

My wife had a history of breast cancer in her family and her doctor recommended her to take Tamoxifen. The side effects were not great so we decided not to have her on this preventative medicine. She ended up getting breast cancer and after her mastectomy she started taking----Tamoxifen for three years. It prevented it from coming back and twelve years later, she is still cancer free. We learned a valuable lesson not to be afraid of "side effects". The more people that get the vaccine, the more things will pop up. But I like the odds so far of no major issues.

That is not what that article says and who gets their information from facebook anyway? That article is telling radiologists to be aware that a COVID vaccine can cause enlarged or swollen lymph nodes in the breasts and not to confuse that with more serious conditions and that they should retest in 4-12 weeks before getting too excited. If they are doing biopsis without waiting then that lady has some very poor doctors or the imaging shows something totally different. The vaccine is not going to give you cancer in a matter of weeks.

My friend, who is a nurse and has been for over 20 years posted the information. She has a good friend who this happened to and has to get a biopsy on the 28th and is scared to death. It wasn't just fly by night information I found on FB. I trust my friend thoroughly as we are cousins and best friends. Again - it was not intended as a deterrent - I just wanted to share information that my friend provided me. Do with it as you want....
