This is very true. It's unfortunate as well, as there are people who just can't do immunizations and actually rely on others to do so.

It's too bad people are selfish, and stupid. It's a hell of a combination.

Which makes me fortunate that, if there are reasons for doubt, they should be evident before my turn arrives. And, like every medical treatment, drug or surgery I've ever used, there are potential side-effects, and I'll be weighing them.

But vaccines have been overwhelmingly effective, both in protecting me, and my participation in stemming the spread of diseases to others. Odds are, this will be the same, and I'm going with the odds as long as they're in our favor.
Our operation is collecting household size numbers to start planning vax distribution. Of course no timeframe yet, but as a health care/essential service we’ll be early on (probably just after hospital and EMS workers).

Also our community staged a drive-in flu vax clinic a couple weeks ago. In a town of ~30k people they gave 1.5k flu shots over the weekend. Partly to try to tamp down flu season and reduce strain on our hospital, but also as a proof of concept for a mass vax effort.

Based on a sample size of one (spousal unit):

First shot: No systemic effects, some soreness at the injection site (researcher was not experienced at giving injections). Spousal unit was worried that she had received a placebo.

Second shot: Mild fever, went away in a day with Ibuprofen. Antibodies within a few weeks.

Yes. I'm a health care worker. Any additional barrier of protection I can get helps my family stay safe. My nightmare is bringing this home.

How long would these antibodies last, post-vaccination?

Is this going to be something we need yearly shots for ala Flu?

My understanding is that vaccinations differ widely in how long they provide protection for.

Just curious if we have any answers for these questions yet.

I'll be getting vaccinated. From my perspective, the pros greatly outweigh the cons.

All good questions to which we do not yet have good answers.

Very hard to learn about long-term immunity for a virus that has been recognized for less than a year.

Moreover...

As a health care worker, I see it as a duty to my co-workers and patients that I encounter.

Perplexing to me, I have a couple of co-workers who are physicians from other countries whose credentials are not recognised in Canada. They are very much anti-vax. One of which just lost her 40 year old brother in law to COVID in Iraq. Even that didn't change her perspective.

:WTF:
