I'm not getting the vaccine yet
I'm a 33 year old man. No health problems or comorbidities. I stay in the house and will be home for the foreseeable future. I live with another person, same age.
I'm also hesitant to get this vaccine at the moment, which I'm working on. Too many reported complications, roll out is a mess. I had COVID exactly a year ago and likely still have antibodies as well. It just makes sense for me to wait until fall to get it at this point. Maybe I won't even need to get it by that point.
If you're older and/or have health conditions by all means get it as soon as possible.

If you want to get it get it, if you don’t, don’t. It’s really not worth a thread. Also saying ‘the rollout is a mess’ really depends on what country you’re in which you didn’t mention. Also why would the efficiency of the rollout factor into whether you would be hesitant about taking it? Surely hesitancy would depend on risks? The whole thing is confusing, as in you seem confused.

R17 You do realize that most vaccines take years, if not decades, to create because they lack the funds/manpower needed to create them quickly, right? The COVID-19 vaccines were created quickly (but also based off of previous work to create a vaccine for SARS) precisely because of the unprecedent and tremendous financial and manpower that were basically racing against time to create them.

Eventually my friends were all getting it and I was feeling like I couldn't really participate if I didn't get it. Plus, I just want to move on and COVID has taken up 16 months of our lives. I got Pfizer, had no side effects, and I'm glad it's over. Now, I do wonder what they will tell us 6 months to a year from now about the initial vaccines, but I can't put years of life on hold. I like to travel, have sex, take group fitness glasses, get massages and drink in bars so it's what has to be done.

R53, I don’t know how old you are or what age you consider old. Of the 8 people I knew who died from COVID, three were in the 46 - 54 age range. No comorbidities. Another who did have a comorbidity was 21.
I know two people in their early 40s who suffered from COVID-related strokes. They each have a long road to recovery.
Last January, my friend made an agonizing decision to put her mom in a nursing home. She was dead by March. Another friend lost both parents over a three week span. Yet another friend lost his mother during a nursing home outbreak.
My 23 year old niece recovered after being sick for about 3 weeks, diagnosed after being sick almost two weeks because tests were so scarce. She still has no sense of smell, and can only taste bitter and sour. She says most food tastes like garbage or vomit.
A 26 year old coworker has such bad vertigo and tinnitus from COVID that he had to go on disability. He can’t work.
A young woman who works at my local market is suffering from COVID-related hairloss. She has several completely bald patches on her scalp.

There is widespread consensus among scientists and public health experts that the herd immunity threshold is not attainable — at least not in the foreseeable future, and perhaps not ever.
Instead, they are coming to the conclusion that rather than making a long-promised exit, the virus will most likely become a manageable threat that will continue to circulate in the U.S. for years to come, still causing hospitalizations and deaths but in much smaller numbers.

Does anyone know why having covid doesn't count for something as far as everyone being safer? Aren't there antibodies present for the same amount of time as getting the vaccine (6-12 mos)? I'm genuinely asking because I can't seem to find a proper answer. It'd be nice to know seeing that could take care of the vaccine shy portion of the population, and save vaccines for people that need it immediately. All I've been told is that the vaccine is way better, but no reason why, when the antibodies are present either way.
Anyone here with a background in vaccinations?

R119 - Ellen is a dingbat. These types of idiots are what is holding the whole of society back in terms of finally containing this virus. It's everyone's business because it's contagion.

And that's a genuine question above. I seem to get jumped on by people when I ask, even though I'm all for vaccines. The question really pertains to people that won't get one, to see if there's still some light at the end of the tunnel.
I remember when it began, how contacting it multiple times wasn't a big risk. I know vaccinating is the safest route, but surely there's got to be some reduced transmission among those that recover. I notice it with other transmittable viruses, people don't keep getting sick over and over, unless there's something that messes with their immunity.

Hi OP, I'd really think this through, if I were you. Those Russian winters are brutal and the sputnik vaccine might not be accessible in your district if you wait too long to get it.

R127 - it shows you his "depth". R124 - you are right...for an American to be that ridiculous and not understand the privilege of having the option of a reputable vaccine. At the Emerson American multinational here, there is a team from the Russian plant in Chelyabinsk and literally all of them signed up on the local government overnment's website as foreigners with work permits like I did so as to be able to get the Astra Zeneca or Pfizer because they absolutely don't want to take anything else. It's sad we have the anti-vaxxers who are so backwards and pull the rest of us back.

I don’t think that’s known for sure, but it might not be necessarily true. There’s some evidence that it depends on how mild or severe the case was. On the other hand, more is known about the vaccine.

R129 THANK YOU for giving me something. You have no idea how difficult it is to get any answer. Even when I look it up, I get info like this: "The immune systems of more than 95% of people who recovered from COVID-19 had durable memories of the virus up to eight months after infection. The results provide hope that people receiving SARS-CoV-2 vaccines will develop similar lasting immune memories after vaccination".
That's why I'm trying not to sweat antivaxxers or support special passes. Seems that they'll get it and be either somewhat covered by default, or die, even if it's not as perfect as getting the vaccine, especially if we do reach 70% vaccination.

[quote]Too many reported complications, roll out is a mess.
Sorry, OP. But if that's what you're basing your decision on, you're a fool. In the midst of millions of vaccinations, there have been damned few complications, and most of those are much less significant that the illness itself.
As for the roll out being a mess, that's not at all true. What Biden's people have been able to do in a few months is nothing short of miraculous. In any event, all you have to do is sit still when the professional gives you the injection. Everything that happens before the needle hits your arm is irrelevant to you being protected by the vaccine.

R132, WGU is actually a great school and pioneering online education. You can accelerate through courses and complete a degree in record time. I'm wrapping up a whole Bachelor's degree in just 14 months, but some have completed one in 6 months.
A lot of pandemic propaganda being spouted in this thread. Get the vaccine now or you'll drop dead tomorrow!! If you don't get the vaccine you're killing the granny down the street!! Cool it with the dramatics, people.
And the fascism needs to stop too. You can't bully or force people to get a vaccine if they decide they don't want it or need it.

When you haven't a fucking clue in hell what you're dealing with, the best thing to do is keep the masses scared, docile and compliant. That's been the prevailing government/medical/media worldview since December 2019.

Is immunity from the vaccine stronger than natural immunity from infection?
“The first time your body sees the spike protein, it activates some immune system cells to begin to recognize and develop antibodies against that protein,” says Bryn Boslett, MD, an infectious disease expert who is leading the vaccination effort at UC San Francisco. The response may be similar whether that first encounter is from infection with the virus or from the first dose of the vaccine.
Studies of the mRNA vaccines suggest that one dose may offer between 50 to 80 percent protection against symptomatic COVID-19. “We know you get some amount of protection after one dose of the vaccine or after infection with the virus, but we don’t know in either case how long that protection lasts,” she said. Some cases of reinfection have been reported after three to six months, so the protection from one dose of the vaccine also may wane in that timeframe.
“However, when you get the second dose of the vaccine, you’re further training your immune system,” said Boslett. “You’re strengthening that response from the antibody-producing B cells and you’re also activating T memory cells that stick around for much longer.” Getting both doses of the vaccine means your body is shown this spike protein multiple times in a short duration. “So that immune response might be bigger, better and longer lasting than just getting the infection one time,” she said.
Because the booster effect is so important, Boslett adds that this is why people who have had COVID-19 are still recommended to get the vaccine.

Long enough for the FDA to give them full approval.

[quote] I've actually had invasive surgery before, so anesthesia as well.
Then why the fuck are you so afraid of taking a Covid-19 vaccine?? Again, the risk of serious complications from surgery and the accompanying anaesthesia - EVERY TIME you undergo said surgery - is far greater than taking the vaccine.

R101 so I had this shot Tuesday at nine am. Zero side effects. I'm also 32 and very active, so that probably helps. Remember folks, the number one thing you can do to prevent covid or the next pandemic from killing you is lose some weight. Healthy-weighted bodies can pivot much faster than faster ones when fighting disease.

R146 - too true. I have been sedentary through this pandemic due to work and chores and, admittedly, my own fault. Over a year into this, I had a physical, MRI, and colonoscopy and am in perfect health. I used to go to the gym 5 times a week not to be a boring gym gay, but because I spent a lot on a gym that was a spa and my second home where I met some interesting people who became friends (doctors, writers, etc....not just muscle airheads). I invested in good nutrition and physical therapy and had maybe 2 drinks a few times a week. It pays off.
Screw the obese MAGA and anti-vaxxers. I did it all to stay healthy and at 43 got an excellent bill of health.
