If you are still hesitant to get the vaccine, please look at what’s going on right now in India. It’s the classic American attitude. We have a surplus of vaccines because we are wealthy nation and people here are “hesitant” to get vaccinated so the vaccines are sitting there unused. If India had the surplus of vaccine we currently have in the U.S. there would be a full stampede of Indian citizens to whatever clinic was giving the vaccine. We have very low IQ people here in our country. The Coronavirus is very dangerous and getting the vaccine and putting up with a few side effects for a day or two is worth the protection from the vaccine. The world has irrevocably changed. You either are vaccinated and protected or you are not. If you are not vaccinated, you may very well become infected by a deadly pathogen. If you get to the clinic and are offered J&J but are worried because of the blood clots, then opt out and make another appointment to try to get Moderna or Pfizer. Finally, we may not ever reach herd immunity because of all of the weird anti-vaxxers and those hesitant to get the vaccine, but if enough people get vaccinated we will reach a “new normal.”
