Provided it's safe and effective, yes, I have no problem with it - although it'll be awhile where I live - since it'll be the elderly and the border force that'll get first dibs.

If it really is about mind-controlling people, good luck with that in my case... it won't work

I turn 70 this year, my wife is 66 and had pre-existing health conditions. (Yeah, I robbed the cradle.) I have been fighting to try to get HER vaccinated since they came out. If we get the chance, d@mn right we will get vaccinated! The only ones I would let go first are those in nursing homes (residents or staff), hospital workers and first responders, Professional Educators, and those over 75 because they are at higher risk than we are. Anyone who turns it down when they have a chance to get vaccinated is an idiot!

UPDATE: News received just today: we are on the schedule for tomorrow morning.

UpperDate: post shots and doing fine. Fast in-out with a short wait to ensure we did not have a reaction. Very efficient, and well worth the piece of mind. (No fee, did not 4even take out insurance information down!)

Hell NO! In 2-3 months the variants of covid will make this current vaccine $NULL and $VOID...

I've already had my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine and I look forward to my second. But then, not being a USian, I don't suffer from Tinfoil Hat Syndrome.

Just like all the other vaccinations I've had previously, it will help with protection.

I have had my first dose, & will be getting my second booster in about 2 months.

All I felt was something like a pin head rest against my arm, & it was all over, so don't be shy...

Trying to register, but the MASS state site is crashed under the weight of applications. Today is the first day allowing everyone over 65.

I've already had my first shot. I have the flu vaccine every year. I was vaccinated against smallpox, diphtheria and whooping cough as a small child and against TB and polio at school. What's so special about covid?

Then we modify the vaccine! Flu viruses mutate a darned sight faster than coronaviruses, so we have a new vaccine each winter with completely new strains in it. Actually an RNA vaccine like the Pfizer or Moderna ones can be modified in a week because it's basically just doing a spell check on a line of code.

I got my first dose last Saturday, and I had no hesitation, no regrets, no adverse reactions. My second dose is scheduled for March 6. I get an annual "Flu Shot," and I will get an annual COVID vaccination if it becomes necessary.
