Topic of the discussion

How are you today?
The pharmaceutical groups Pfizer (USA) and BioNTech (Germany), as well as Moderna (USA), announced last month that their vaccine candidates are around 94 and 95% "effective" in preventing COVID-19 infections, according to preliminary results of their large-scale phase 3 trials, which are still ongoing.
Earlier this week, the White House Coronavirus Task Force was in discussion about the FDA approval (slated for December 10th at the earliest), with rumors of a vaccine launch as early as the week of December 14th!
What do you think about this? Would you be interested in getting vaccinated against COVID-19 once the vaccine is available?

I stay home and now I do mostly do online shopping. Since my daughter in law and I have disability issues I only go to 2 stores now. I now have health insurance and hope to see the Doctor this month. And get back on my meds. So the answer to the question is I'll see what my new Doctor says

My husband and I have tried to follow all of the guidelines, since March. We online shop for everything. We have not been in a store, activity or restaurant.
We are really looking forward to the vaccines. We will talk to our doctor about which one we should take.

No way I am taking it. It took 4 years to develop a measles vaccine but 8 months for this?? Seems kinda rushed and to politically backed.

No way, I have never had a flu shot and never have gotten the flu. I have read several places they will be chipping us with this vaccine and I will not let anyone control me especially since I was a little girl we were taught about being marked from the Bible. As much as I miss the normal life I had I will not be getting it.
Please know if you feel comfortable than by all means get it, but I don't believe they have done enough research and they might not know true side effects. Like with every other virus that is in this world I believe you still have to build your immune system against them, and right now with this virus and most of us under Quarantine were not getting any bad germs to keep our immune systems fighting against other things. So I do try to go shopping or get out a little like every 3 weeks, I wear my mask of course . But I do order online most of the time but who's to say that the person handling my groceries hasn't been in contact with the virus, it's just chance we still have to take, so what I'm saying is there is always that one percent we can still get it, I just have to hope by staying as safe as possible that none of us contract it.

I am feeling so alone being so far away from my family. I live 400 miles from my family. My mother and father have passed and i have 4 grown kids with families of their own.
Because of Covid 19 my husband and i won't be going to Delaware to visit everyone as we usually do. Summers they always come here for a visit as we live in Myrtle Beach. A lot of things to do. Costly though.
I havent seen my great grandchildren in over a year and them growing up i am missing out on. I don't feel a part of anything anymore and that makes me real say. I could go on and on but it would only be upsetting to me and boring for you.
I will close for now.
