    Seeing as I am young and not in any risk groups, it'll probably be another year or so before that's an option. There simply.aren't enough produced yet, so it's distributed based on need. If you're asking if I would? Yes.

    Every moment of a life is a horrible tragedy, a slapstick comedy, dark nihilism, golden illumination, or nothing at all; depending on how we write the story we tell ourselves.

    I'm nervous. I don't think there's been enough time to detect potential long term side effects. I don't think the studies were in depth enough. But I also know that covid sucks, my familly is tired of the isolation, and I want life to get back to normal ish. We've been saying we want to give it six months, just in case. But we're tired.

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.

    what I've seen of the studies actually makes me calmer about it. The recorded side effects are pretty standard and pass in 1-4 days. You're right we haven't had the time to study long term side effects *if* there are any. But the biggest issue is really wen don't know how long the protective effect will last. First generation vaccines are rarely long terms, that takes a few tries.

    Truthfully no.

    Something to consider. When I was active duty we were given shots for everything and anything that came along. We had no choice in the matter. The only exception being if we were allergic to it. Does it mean that things might not change from what the article is stating, not at all. But Uncle Sugar sure didn't hesitate to line us up and stick us with needles or use new drugs on us back in the day so I don't really see him changing now.

    .. But as the two departments sort out the details on who should receive the vaccine and where, DoD officials stressed it will not be mandatory for U.S. service members, at least for a while.

    According to officials, the vaccine will remain voluntary as long as it is authorized under emergency conditions and doesn't have official approval from the FDA.

    Re: The COVID Vaccine

    I'm on the fence. I've had pretty bad reactions from flu shots, and I broke out in spots from the MMR shot, so I'll see how things go. Unfortunately my odds of squeaking by on "herd immunity" here are low since most of the local herd thinks the vaccine has a microchip in it. I'm a serious loner so that's in my favor for the time being.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    There is a little bit of nervousness there but given the option to protect my family I'll take that rist! I need people to be able to go out and eat!!! I need it, and I need them to be able to do so safely. My entire industry is hurting. My people are hurting, my family specifically is hurting!

    I may have to, since I work in a hospital. If I do, then so be it. I work on the covid wing of the ICU anyways, so I already risk getting it every time I come into work.
