Thoughts about potential vaccine?

Hello everyone,

I am wondering how people are feeling about a vaccine that is being rushed through the regular FDA protocols. I have yet to do some solid research on what corners are being cut but I do think that it is important to comprehend. On the surface, I have some anxiety about a vaccine when/if it becomes available due to the rushed process. I was wondering if anyone had any information they could share on what the FDA is letting slide and how that can impact the efficacy and potential hazards of the vaccine? Considering those facts, would you be accepting of this vaccine? Would you be willing to take it and have your family take it? I want to strongly support the vaccine, as I do all vaccines but it should be clear why I would want to know more and have hesitations. I will do more research and try to post something in the thread. Maybe someone already has info they can post? 🙂

There's a couple discussions from before- not sure how current they are, but there may be some starting points for research ideas.

I feel much better about how fast they are pushing the vaccines after watching this video.

I watched this video too! Well, part of it. I love this Dr.! I didn't get to the end though because, ya know, kid. I will revisit it though, thanks!
