I personally think that I will refrain from taking the vaccine in hopes that it works and the virus is essentially eradicated without the need to. There are just so many unknowns, for me, in a rushed vaccine with small clinical trials. Unlike vaccines that have been around for decades, we won't know the long-term impact of a COVID-19 vaccine on the body (or even future body's).We are battling for our lives until a vaccine is available.
Having mentioned that, the more that choose to vaccinate will lessen my odds of contracting COVID-19 anyway.
Just a personal choice of mine as my sister had DTaP as a baby and almost died in the ambulance to the critical care unit ICU, hours away. My mom then chose not to give it to me. However, I did get whooping cough at about 6 years old.
I would advocate everyone to look into the trials and how many tests were conducted along with side effects compared to the placebos prior to injecting yourself with a vaccine
I'm not anti-vax as my children are vaccinated—I'm "18-month rush to the market for as much as a corporation can profit off of small sample sizes" anti-vax and will wait for hundreds of thousands of administrations.
