Once the vaccine becomes widely available it will be a requirement needed to travel or attend school/university etc. It's just a matter of time when you will get it.

I think frontline persons should get it first (nurses, doctors, police officers, health workers), then the rest of the population would eventually get it within the year.

Most of tuner would be in the "wait to see" category since we won't be able to get it immediately.

I say make it mandatory that ALL politicians take it first to ensure our safety, then once none of them drop dead then we can give the general public..........

Smallpox had an even higher mortality rate than polio and it has all been eliminated since the vaccine was created.

These anti vaxers have no idea of how bad things were.

I'll give it some time to see how it proceeds. Maybe at least 6-8 months.

As early as possible , not old, not a frontline worker, no co morbidities so I’ll be anxiously waiting. Pushing for all my older family to get it so will have peace of mind knowing I’m not responsible for getting them sick.
They were sounding unwilling at first then a covid death of a distant family member made them realize this is not a game.

I agree dude. I'm relatively young and healthy (so likely mild or asymptomatic), but I work with two older guys one of whom is diabetic. Plus I see my parents and elderly neighbor often enough.

I do not want to be the one who brings an early death to any of them due to carelessly spreading covid. My mom's friend died at 62 (male) from covid months ago. My friend's dad in NY died as well at 71. A friend who is only 47 had covid in August and she still can't walk upstairs without feeling exhausted (she used to do crossfit prior to this).

So covid-19 isn't a joke.

And to be honest, I'm totally fed up with restrictions and masks. I just want things back to normal because living like this has been depressing as hell for me.

The more people 'wait and see' the more long term restrictions, economic impacts, mental health decline, and impacts on education we'll suffer.

Do the right thing and take the vaccine. Once it's not the Chinese or Russian vaccine you can be reliably sure it's safe long-term.

Once u young and healthy u could wait a couple months, not more than 3 to see how it plays out, the older and high risk population should get it right away although they can see what happens in other countries who get it early. Its likely young ppl would have to wait anyway based on Government priority groups.

Idk about people, but I waiting on the laundry list of side effects.

Vaccines different to drugs, but I not running for a vaccine that might not have a lasting efficacy or may not be effective in all patients that get it

What if the vaccine is 99% effective but has that one side effect after 2 years where it makes you extremely susceptible to developing a type of cancer? Or worse, maybe kill d coco? How will we know? I'll hang back at least two years before considering taking a vaccine of any type.

So if everyone adopts this wait and see approach, then who do you expect would be lining up for it?

Isn't that selfish of you? Modern vaccines have a minuscule chance (like a one in a million) of not having any long-term side effects.

Also, if long term side effects are your concern then how long will you wait? Remember tens of thousands of persons have already been through the trials, possibly more by now.

The entire point of all these phase 3 trials was to look for high-risk side effects to which there were none.

So again, why wait?

Technological advancements have significantly reduced the possibility of chronic side-effects. However, this is of course with adequate clinical trials and testing. 6 months to one year is not enough time for me personally. But when the world becomes desperate (which it has), shorter trial times suddenly become acceptable.

Nevertheless I'm glad that you are of this opinion. Go forth and take one as soon as it is available. If after two years you're good with no health issues, I'll consider being next in line. If you end up with cancer or ded cocolooks then I glad it wasn't me.

I understand your concerns but actually, the Phase 3 trials have not been rushed or short-changed, in fact, this is the whole reason why we still don't have a vaccine available yet all these companies pretty much had it developed by May/June.

Secondly, this vaccine is of the utmost importance for us to get back to normal life. Hence why we've gotten so far with it.

I don't get why so many people don't understand if you pump money and resources into something you can get it done significantly faster than at regular business as usual pace.

I rarely voice myself on 2nr put this entire post is making me sick with the selfishness I'm seeing.

This is why I fully endorse mandatory vaccines for those who are well enough to take it.

If not, anyone responsible for spreading covid-19 which results in death, after a vaccine has been available for at least 3 months (giving you time to get immunized) should be charged with manslaughter. Now legally I know that's not going to happen, but effectively that is what it comes down to.

You can be contributing to the death of people. Remember many of these vaccines at not 100% effective, so maybe 1 in 15 persons who did take the vaccine won't have protection.

These 'wait and see' people want the privilege of going back to a non-lockdown lifestyle, without getting vaccinated. You are no different from the anti-vaxers in the US who are responsible for new measles outbreaks.

That is utterly selfish behavior and I need to stress that again. Making everyone else get a vaccine while you sit back on your a$$ and hope herd immunity protects you and your family is SELFISH.

Realistically, if you're not vaccinated you should not be allowed in public spaces like schools, churches, workplaces, cinemas, gyms, parties, bars and restaurants.

The Pharm Companies need to do field tests on people who NOT in First World countries .

Now THEY ( The Establishment ) injecting" inactive COVID 19 virus" in vaccine form into a perfect young body ..

Hmm .. " I see dead people ! "

Chances are Trini will get the cheapest vaccine since who really cares about the Bananas from a Banana Republic ?
