COVID-19 Vaccine

I’m wondering who will take the vaccine, I will. I want to play with my grandkids and get back to doing things we did before. It looks like teachers and school personnel will be able to get vaccinated soon, I’ll get in line as soon as possible.

I don't ever get the flu shot so I'm going to pass. Hopefully, your post stays on topic with yes and no answers without going political. In the meantime, I've become old enough to apply for Social Security so that'll be more money for camping next year.

Still up for debate. DW now carries an epi-pen & when she heard several people have already had reactions, she is concerned. Will be discussed with allergist before she does anything. When tested she had allergic reactions & her first allergy shot she reacted.

My wife and I take a flu shot every year, We have never had a problem. Everyone’s situation is different but for us we are willing to take it. I know this thing is real, I lost an extended family member in Texas a month ago.

I'm definitely not going to be the first one in line, but I will be in line.
What will be more interesting is how many people will be forced into getting it by their employers. I'm sure essential workers will be , but where do you draw the line in the essential workers category? There are so many different types of essential workers. This kinda reminds me of the smallpox vaccine like 50 years ago. I believe that was forced on everyone. How many people made a stink over that? Now look at how many people are making a stink over this.
Not trying to throw this one off track by any means , just making discussion and I'll be voting yes on this poll.

Yes, I am planning to take the Vaccine when available. From what I understand, due to our occupation, my wife and I will be in one of the earlier phases of the distribution.

One of my daughters has severe food allergies. She is already researching the vaccines as they roll out to see what her best option is. She has never reacted to any other vaccines including the flu shot. But, it is definitely something that we will have to closely watch.

I do want the vaccine so we can get back to some kind of normal. My dw spent 2019 kicking cancers ass, and now is unable to live life to the fullest.
The back of my mind says- never ride the new ride the first year.

Big yes as I think without it you may not be able to travel in some places outside the USA.

We miss our travels in Canada terribly and if a shot will let us in , I am all in. Newfoundland and the Maritimes now prohibit travelers who live in other provinces never mind the USA. They are quite strict and require paperwork to back your claim you can travel there.

Both well used. Now up to 250 nights camping and 70,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

Yes - when it's offered. I believe I'm in the lower-risk category so I'll be waiting.
But yes.


I've been reading/watching everything I can about the Pfizer and Moderna ones. My preference will be for their mRNA vaccines.




I'm still thinking about the approach AZ/Ozford and J&J took.


I consider myself neither pro nor anti-vax, but the mRNA ones make me more comfortable than many others.

I'm not essential any more since retiring, but the DW is. We'll both be in line for it. I've never been allergic to anything (except housework), so if the first 10 minutes are uneventful I'm good with it.

I may. BUT, I want to see what the side effects are. How many times have the FDA approved drugs, then after a while or years found out they are not safe and withdrew them.

Have gotten all immunizations since 1981, and cannot wait to get the Covid vaccine. Wish it could be tomorrow, but might be 4+ months, even being 69 and high risk.

No, at least until there's a LOT more long term data available! DW already has an autoimmune disease and I have an allergy that puts us at higher risk for a reaction.

Very smart.


I read they're suggesting at least 15, preferably 30 minutes of observation.
Just to be on the safe side.



I've never had a reaction either, but the Shingles shot sure felt like Mohamed Ali punched my arm! That one made me sore for two days!

The sore arm is normal for any vaccine, not considered a reaction.

The flu shot this year gave me a sore arm. I never had that happen before. I don't know what the difference was this year, but it hurt for days.
