This will be rolled out to the elderly and vulnerable first just like the flu jab this year so someone like me won't get a look at a vaccine until it's been given to the 12 million over 65's in the UK and then the millions on top of that, that are part of vulnerable groups.

Suffice to say by the time it gets to me millions of human guinea pigs will have had the vaccine to know if it's safe or not. Hell it will have been through a larger more real world trial than most other vaccines before release to my age group.
I assume people will be tested prior to being administered the vaccine? But with the amount of COVID around it will be difficult to keep track of the success rate of the vaccine or side effects experienced by the early guinea pigs.

They've already done extensive testing on human guinea pigs. It wouldn't have got this far without it. Some have said the vaccine made them feel super shitty. There are reports out there.

Isn't the vaccine made from relatively well known methods? I think it's an offshoot of the SARS vaccine that was in development years back, so I'd have thought the longterm effects would be fairly well understood?

Plus there's a new flu jab every season and people aren't dropping dead from that every year.

I think I'll be putting Bill Gates in my death poll next year. Some gun nut, Christian, antivaxxer is definitely gonna take a pop at him soon, if the amount of deranged tweets I've seen recently flying around are anything to go by
