What do you consider a truly legit reason not to be vaccinated? 

My mother had to make the choice between being vaccinated and a pending surgery because the surgeons didn't feel comfortable at that time doing surgery within 2 weeks of vaccination.  Would that be a truly legit reason?

How about people with severe allergic conditions that are advised by their doctors not to take any vaccines?  Would that be a truly legit reason?

How about women who are pregnant?  Although all 3 US vaccines have had representatives from their companies suggesting the vaccine is safe in pregnancy, the FDA has yet to assign any of the vaccines a pregnancy class. Would that be a legit reason if their doctors suggested deferring?

How about people who are concerned about the long-term effects?  None of us knows what this vaccine will do to our bodies in 5 to 10 years or more.  There is no way for scientists even to test those possibilities in animal studies because this is a strictly human vaccine.  Is that a truly legit reason?

We have had medications that have been considered safe for years by the FDA which are now found to cause cancer.  One of the latest, zantac, even passed the rigorous testing to get approved to be safe over-the-counter.  

Again, I think the risks of the vaccine are far outweighed by the benefits but I know there are risks.  I made the decision to get vaccinated because of MY risk v. benefit analysis based on the real studies, not what the government or media told me.  That's the only thing I'm supporting any American to have the right to do before they inject something that is potentially dangerous into their bodies.

My gods, what a sophomoric post. And you, claiming to be a medical professional...

There is noone, to my knowledge, that is forcing vaccines on people with physician approved medical excuses. Those people get a pass. In the event that the reason is temporary, it can be reversed based on physician approval.

There is NO medication 100% safe. None. All can cause harm. All vaccines, can cause harm. 

This was rushed because of emergency. Worldwide pandemic.

I was hesitant at first, especially for my wife. But there is no reason for most everyone to be unvaccinated at this point. My parents got Covid. They got the antibody treatment, that helped them stay out of the hospital. Still, got very sick. Still have lingering effects. And I have been on their @ss to go get at least an antibody test, and then the vaccine. If they get it again, they very well may not survive it.

Some of their elderly friends are in sad shape, post Covid infection. And I don't think they will ever mend.

Get the shot (he said, to anyone that hasn't).

Typical.  Can't face the tough questions.


C’mon “NW”…show a little mercy on this day of thanks. How can I or anyone else here be expected to respond to such an incredibly tough question posed by the self-proclaimed “smartest” poster here?

A better use of your time would be to get back to preparing that dinner you had to stretch your budget to enjoy this year. Maybe you’ll be able to take advantage of the heat being generated by the cooking and dial back your home heating source. Waste not want not.

When I hear people don't want to take the vaccine, it reminds me of two family friends that passed away from Covid. One passed away at the start of the pandemic and the other right before vaccines were made available. Both of those people might still be alive if they had a chance to get vaccinated.

The opposite of woke is being asleep, and sleepy people are a dictator's dream.

'Woke' has been weaponized to label those fighting oppression the oppressors

strategically changing the meaning of terms is a game conservatives have played for a long time.
