When I’m asked to decide on getting the vaccine shots.

As of this post, millions of Americans have elected to get the two shots of vaccine, delivered a few weeks apart. The vast majority have shown no immediate adverse effects from doing so. Yet, I still have a few questions… and maybe some additional studies still need to be done…

In America, just under 4K have passed away within a couple of days of getting the shots? That’s a significant number when you consider that over a 15 year period (1998 to 2013) there were fewer immediate deaths from all vaccines given, than have been experienced in just the first four months using just the Covid-19 vaccine.

Scientists caution that all they know about these vaccines is what the companies have said in press releases. Really?

Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna have not yet released all the data on how well the vaccine works in different age or ethnic groups, or for people with different medical conditions.

Studies have not yet been done on children or pregnant women, and yet the government wants to proceed with the injections on a mass scale.

Yet, these vaccines are being mass produced and shipped all over the world. Wow. That concerns me.

Following are some questions that I’d like answered before sticking my are out:

  1. Why are some states giving out free goodies if you get vaccinated? (They’ve never done that with other vaccines). Are cash incentives coming?
  2. With herd immunity now taking strong effect, why the continued harsh line out of Washington DC to get vaccinated? Is there some sort of timeline I’m missing?
  3. If the concern over the virus is so high, why is Biden allowing thousands of migrants, who are sick with the virus, into the country? Really?
  4. Why is CNN in lockstep with the government’s approval? (That really concerns me).
  5. Why is Joe still wearing a mask, when he is among individuals who are vaccinated and considered immune?
  6. Why is the CDC thinking about giving the vaccine to the very young? Kids who have been shown to be very capable of throwing off the virus when and if they catch it.

These are just a just few concerns, right off the top of my head. Covid-19, while serious for a specific segment of the population, is still not the plague, it’s not a contagious Ebola or a leprosy or anything like those guys.

You know what? My gut feeling tells me that I need more information. A lot more.
