Pulling people out of the ditc...
In old BOL days, i'd have done a poll, but since those no longer work, just curious if anyone is planning on getting the vaccine when it is available. not looking for this to become political or to become a soapbox about how it is 5G marking for tracking people. much less Bill Gate's evil plan to take over the world.

I plan on getting when available.

As of right now.....I do not plan on getting it right away when it becomes available.

I'm not anti-vaccine by any means, my only concerns are long term effects. How do you know what these could possibly be (if any)...

Considering it won't be available to the general public for a few months though, my mind could possibly be changed. We will see....

In my state, financial institution employees would be eligible in Tier 2. I have had more than one client remove their mask while sitting across the desk from me. Whether or not you think the mask is efficient or not is irrelevant at this point, as we have a state mandate, as well as orders from our CEO. I plan to get the vaccine once they get to Tier 2.

I'll get it as soon as I can once it's widely available. I'm back office, and have been lucky enough to be able to almost exclusively work from home, so I wouldn't want to take a more exposed person's dose even if possibly able to at tier 2 (I haven't checked the specific requirements).

I have a lot to say about people not taking recommended vaccinations (or wearing a mask) that protect society, including vulnerable populations unable to take it themselves, due to risks to their individual well being. I'll just leave it at that though.

Yes I want it as soon as i can. And I'll make sure my 71 year old mother gets it too as soon as she's able. It's the only way this pandemic will slow down to something manageable. The first clinical trial patients were given the vaccine in January and February and thus far the serious side effects are rare and have happened immediately after injection.

ASAP, but someone's answer might be dependent on how old they are.

I am not certain where I fall in the spectrum of availability but I am on the lower risk end of things both for myself and who I interact with. As such, even if I could get the vaccine I would want to be further down the line to make sure higher risk folks get the opportunities first.

I will get it whenever I'm told it's my turn. I'm definitely for it but, as others have said, know there are others out there at greater risk than I am and don't mind waiting for that reason.

My husband and I will receive the vaccine when it becomes available to us. Luckily I can also work from home (and he's retired).

I am generally wary of most things that are rushed (and pushed by the Government), however I will get the vaccine. It really boils down to "what other options do we have?" Plus by the time I get it there would have been plenty of guinea pigs ….

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
I'm taking a wait and see approach. I had such a bad reaction to the flu shot last year that it has made me wary. Will most likely be discussing with my Dr.

I am not planning on getting it. Too many uncertainties.

as you should, because relying on medical professional's advice is how we will get past this.

not listening to politicians or social media doctors or some's cousin's brother's ex-sister-in-law's former high school classmate that was in prison with someone who knows things like this are an evil plot to take over the world!

I am getting it as soon as possible and then I am getting on an airplane and getting out of the country. I have had enough of this sitting at home.

I plan on getting it as soon as possible. By the time we get it, my concerns over immediate side effects will be quelled. Long term, half the stuff we eat and drink have more dangerous side effects than a drug studied and approved by the smartest minds in the country in my opinion.

Anyways, side question.... if you choose not to get it, but your employer mandates it, what are you going to do?

During the H1N1 outbreak, the Labor Department had this to say: an employee who refuses vaccination because of a reasonable belief that he or she has a medical condition that creates a real danger of serious illness or death (such as serious reaction to the vaccine) may be protected under Section 11(c) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 pertaining to whistle blower rights.

I won't be getting the rona vaccine, at least not initially. Dr. doesn't want me to get my tetanus shot because of a bad side effect that I get so I will wait and see how this all goes.

I will get as soon as I'm eligible (not in the first tiers). My wife has several high risk factors including diabetes and asthma, so she will be getting it also.

Any where but work
My D-I-L won't let me visit my grandkid without proof of a negative Covid test, so if getting the vaccine will stop the ridiculousness I will get the vaccine.
