I think I’m going to wait for the J & J vaccine.
That's what I am waiting for
That may not be a bad idea. The coronavirus mRNA vaccines are EXPERIMENTAL injections made available without animal studies or any long term testing. Considering that the chances for the young and healthy dying from Covid-19 are minuscule then why should those who are not at high risk volunteer to take it?
Covid Mortality Risk by Age (from the CDC):
0-24: 1 in 250,000
25-44: 1 in 16,666
45-65: 1 in 2,500
65+: 1 in 500
However many in this forum are immuno-compromised so the fatality statistics for the young and healthy may not apply. I am not a medical professional and don't really know, but perhaps the Johnson & Johnson vaccine might be a more viable option since it is an adenovirus-based vaccine.
I do not know if J&J's vaccine has been extensively tested for vaccine side effects, but adenovirus-based vaccines are used against a wide variety of pathogens, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and Plasmodium falciparum (malaria).
