My answer would be no. While I am not anti vaccine in anyway my whole family is up to date on all vaccines I think they are just rushing this one to much. While I understand the need for the rush it really makes me nervous. There is no way to know long term side effects to so early on.

Serious question - not being snarky.  What happens if you become ill with C19 - how do you know what the long term side effects of that might be?  There are no guarantees on that either.

Yes.I see that nobody who voted no posted why they said so.

I voted no because I will wait until we really know the vaccine is safe.  This fast track stuff worries me about other things the cure could cause.   Give it a few years and I will get one, but even then we will not know of any long term issues.

I look at it this way.  For the vaccine I would have to stand in line and get it, if I catch the virus then the big guy upstairs decided I should have it.

I will be first in line for the vaccine. Heck, I’ve volunteering (or trying to volunteer) for any study that will take me. Has zero to do with cruising however. 
 

Note, I’m normally anti anti-vaccine. But I agree this will be rushed. While I think it is everybody’s civic duty to get vaccinated, I fully understand why someone might want to be at the back of the line.

Maybe the big guy didn’t want you to get it and helped get the vaccine out to protect you.

Exactly.  Research in Spain is currently showing neurological problems developing in over 50% of Corona-virus patients. Covid-19 will become a major 'pre-existing condition'. 

 

I have 100% confidence in the Oxford University / Astra Zenica vaccine that is moving forward at an amazing pace as I have followed that one most closely. They will not release a vaccine that is not safe. I will get it the first chance I can.
