Is it a good decision to get the Covid vaccine?
Let’s try to keep this civil. Respect other poster’s opinions and don’t make it political. I would really like to hear how the majority feel on this.
I was 50/50 when first notified my company was about to start administering the Pfizer Covid vaccine – for obvious reasons. I did get my first of the 2 injections earlier this week. The thing that swayed me towards taking the vaccine was my son and his heart condition as well as, just my opinion here, every one of us will eventually either A: Get the Vaccine or B: Be infected by the virus. And given that I am over 50 years old, have diabetes (insulin dependent) and High Blood Pressure, I felt A: was the best choice for me.
The biggest thing that does scare me a little is that this is somewhat of a “breakthrough” in how the vaccine itself works. Most vaccines are a dead version of the virus that is injected into your system (the flu shot being an example), but from my understanding this is a vaccine that actually makes a change in you DNA to prevent the Coronavirus from manifesting within your body. Now, I’m no medical expert, but that’s basically how it was described to me. I was also told, by a very reliable source that this how people with plenty of money are HIV positive for many, many years and do not contract the AIDs virus (Magic Johnson was the example used). They have the money to stay on top of DNA changes needed to keep AIDs out of the conversation.
For anyone who knows and understands this more, please feel free to correct me as I may be explaining this incorrectly – I know computers – not a medical professional.
