2 people I know have signed up for the trials. This has caused a lively debate at work about the vaccine if 1 was to be found.

Does anyone think it should be mandatory to have it?

Would you have it if given the choice?

I have heard both sides of the debate. On 1 hand it has the potential to save your life and others around you. On the other hand there could be side affects with it being rushed out surely there would be more risks.

1 guy was saying a flu vaccine in the States caused Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

Funny you talk about this. Gilead's clinical trial seems to have failed... at least in one hospital. You should have freedom of choice. We shouldn't force this on people.

In 2019 100% I would agree with you. Now I dont know anymore. If it was just myself who A caught the virus and B died from the virus that is on me. When you have the potential to walk around for 2 weeks infecting others I just don't know.

There are more viruses that we can culture. We haven't even scratched the surface. I'm not going to say that vaccination doesn't help, but my training tells me we can't force society. Honestly, a lot of the debates I have with my mentor have to do with the controversy that can potentially kill our drug (or pesticide) being marketable.

Imagine if I told you to use this OTC drug that has parts of a deadly virus that targets something. You'd tell me to go fuck myself :lol:.

There are also potential risks with vaccines. I mean a lot of the probability of the risks happening are small, but they are still there. We shouldn't force people to take risks they aren't willing to take, no matter how small. Again, I don't think there is a scientist that has been trained to force his or her invention onto people. Look at the scientist that discovered recombinant DNA technology. The dude put a moratorium on its use himself after people were talking about scientists creating Frankensteins that will leave the lab.

i'd imagine that a large enough portion of the population would voluntarily get the vaccine anyway. it doesnt have to be 100%

no,it need not be 100% to reach herd immunity...................at the same time,we cant let fuckwits opt out for no good reason because,as stated above,letting them do that has resulted in outbreaks of diseases we used to have fucking beat............

not everyone can be vaccinated,due to other medical issues like compromised immune systems...............so idiots who 'opt out' put other people at risk.................

It seems you're ambivalent on this question....

...still weighing up the pros and cons ?

I actually think 90% of people will willingly take it.

Between that and what herd immunity will be built up from people having gotten the virus and beaten it I think it would be fine.


I can see mandating it for those going to schools though (like we do for many other vaccines) and of course health care workers and some other public sector jobs.


Having said all that it does annoy me that the antivaxer tards get to enjoy the protection of everyone else getting the vaccine. We should give them their own island country and let them all skip out on the vaccines.

I'd assume just like with normal flu vaccine it would be given free to at risk groups like the elderly or those with asthma. Most healthy people can fight it off or wouldn't get serious enough symptoms. It's really those at real risk that need it. So you wouldn't need it to be mandatory and those at risk I assume would all willingly take it just like with the common flu vaccine.

I actually get the flu vaccine because its free with my insurance and I'm around my mom.


My mom gets it but it's not 100%. So my getting it helps...because if it makes it 70% less likely i will get it then that means it is 70% likely I might pass it to her.

This is going to be the same thing


The more people who get it the more overall effective it will be.


I happen to think more people will want to get it though.


I also have to say though that the list of people who fall into the "vulnerable " category for covid-19 seems to be larger than the vulnerable for the flu.

(in terms of our safety, obviously there are other effects) if me and everyone i care about has had it then how much do we need to care what other people do?

In the UK there's a massive problem with unhealthy (through their own lifestyle choices) people clogging up the NHS. It would ease this for starters. It's akin to forcing better habits through, say, removal of high calorific food options.

The percentage of people who would opt out would be so small, there'd be no real benefit in making it mandatory, it'd be well beyond the 70% of so Mark for herd immunity anyway. If a few people get the virus after that, at least they won't be able to pass it on in the same way they would have prior to the mass vaccination.
