A garbage human being
I mean yeah.I've always been seriously annoyed at anti-vaxxers because there are decades of R&D put into the existing ones proving their safety.
Now I feel myself balking at taking the covid-vax because there aren't decades of R&D involved.
This doesn't mean people who are scared of the polio vaccine have a valid argument though.
A big difference between this vaccine and the polio vaccine is risk vs reward.
If I got bit by Savanna Vine snake tommorow, a venomous species for which there is no antivenom, I would gladly risk the side-effects of any experimental drug over the >50% chance I die a slow agonizing death hemorrhaging out of burning blisters. I don't care if the experimental drug has a 10% chance of killing me, the reward outweighs the risk.
Conversely, even if a rhinovirus ("cold") vaccine was 100% safe and effective, why would I take it when there is otherwise no risk of death or serious illness for me?
Why should those of us who are young, healthy (and already recovered) fucking bother with this shit when we are the darwinian fit group anways?
The reward doesn't significantly outweigh the risks.
For the record, I fully support the "right to try". The boomers and fatties have every right to try an experimental vaccine - that's their choice and not mine.
