So I was talking with someone about the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines coming out to protect again Coronavirus.
They tell me that the news is reporting 95% effectiveness and then they pull out their smartphone and show me a cartoon of someone taking the vaccine and their face is all deformed (I won’t go into the details).
So I ask him:
Are you going to talk the vaccine?
Do you take the flu vaccine?
Again he says :
No, it’s poison!
He thinks some more and says (jokingly, I believe):
And if some big burly guys try to hold me down and make me take it, I’ll tell them I’m gonna go out and get a gun and come back tomorrow and shoot them.
Bottom line: there is some real fear and apprehension out there about these vaccines.
And surely, some people do have negative effects–whatever that percentage is.
Personally, I will take the vaccine. I would rather try and fail (hopefully not), than never try at all!
How long the vaccine is effective for–that’s another matter all together. 😉
