True, but at least we did get some clinical trials done, the vaccine(s) have been proven to be effective and relatively safe at least for most, and the way I explained my decision to get the vaccine to others who were hesitant was that I would rather risk the dangers of the vaccine than the dangers of covid itself.....It is clear to me, and should be to everyone, that there remains open, unanswered questions surrounding the efficacy and safety of the Covid-19 vaccines and calling them experimental at this stage of the process seems fitting to me. In a sense, those of you who have taken the vaccine are unwittingly participating in large scale trials.
I thank you.
And as Lynn said above, with covid raging out of control and basically destroying our entire way of life (in addition to killing many people) we just don't have the luxury to wait for a full phase 3 clinical trial of 5+ years to determine the full range of adverse effects.
However I do support & believe it is a matter of personal choice. If people don't want to get it then although I think they should it is their decision to make and not for me to pass judgement on them. However when misinformation is being spread to persuade others to NOT get vaccinated I do think that needs to stop since some people actually believe some of the nonsense that is being spread...
