Will You Get the COVID-19 Vaccine When Available?
As we approach the end of 2020 there appears to be some light at the end of the Pandemic tunnel with positive announcements about vaccines to fight off COVID-19, or is there?
State health departments and governors' offices across the country are finally being told by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Operation Warp Speed how many doses of the coronavirus vaccine they will initially be receiving once the vaccine is authorized. The Pfizer vaccine emergency use authorization is expected later this month and the Moderna vaccine shortly thereafter.
The CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices has recommended that the very first batch of Americans to get vaccinated should be frontline health care workers and residents of long term care facilities such as nursing homes. If that practice is adopted, then the general public will be given the vaccine free of charge.
Even with this news, there are plenty of skeptical people who say they will not take the vaccine when it is made available to them. So I ask the question, Will you get the vaccine or not?
