COVID-19 Vaccines — Will You Be First In Line?

What are your thoughts on getting the vaccine?

Hello my WP family!!

Now that we are getting closer than ever to the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, what are your thoughts?

Tentative plans are to get it out to “front-liners”, then the elderly and those with pressing co-morbidities. Though many people are a bit leery of being inoculated with the vaccine, many others have stated their willingness to be first-in-line.

Since I recovered from COVID in July, I recently did an antibody test and I still have antibodies. I am not sure what the decisions will be concerning inoculating those who had COVID with the first doses.

The number of COVID cases rising rapidly everywhere even among our children. According to DR, Hawse, a Pediatrician speaking on NPR radio, the symptoms increase in severity the closer a child is to young adulthood.

This is the time to remain diligent on the social distancing, hygiene practices, and wearing our masks. Wear our masks the correct way, to cover our nose and our mouths, please.

Be mindful this Thanksgiving of the number of persons in a closed environment and if you are able the experts advise us to celebrate outdoors while still social distancing.

My boss and I plan to keep doing our own little experiment and will be checking my antibodies every 2 months to see where it stands.

So what are your thoughts?

Will you take the vaccine as soon as you are able or, will you play the game of wait and see…?

Be safe, be well, be blessed.

  1. Since I am high risk (heart transplant), I will defer to my Dr’s and if they advise me to get the vaccine, I shall. My transplant team has kept me alive for over 13.5 years, and they are the BEST in the world (Cleveland Clinic).

    1. I hear you. Happy you have medical personnel you can really trust too!!!

  2. First, it’s great to hear you recovered from covid; secondly, I’ll get my usual flu shot and hold off on the covid shot — one of your wait-and-see people.

    1. I completely understand that. Happy to see you doing well.

  3. I doubt I will be first in line, but I will consider taking the vaccine, I think 🤔. Until then, I’ll continue to take precautions!

    1. Very wise my dear friend.

  4. Glad you are recovered💯🙌🏻🙏🏻❤️ I am a wait see! My opinion is it was created very fast, FDA not sure of long term side effects, while most people recover 99.7% from Covid, Yes I wear mask 😷 super vigilante about sanitizing, washing hands, social distancing is easy I’m introverted! 😳My only thought is if Science can create a vaccine this fast for a new virus, where are the cures for other virus like HIV, HPV , Influenza, Flu, Cold, Pneumonia, Strep and many more, far to many to list on here! I pray we all are well this winter!

    1. Very very wise. I hear you, I like the way you think.

      1. It’s been said for over fifty years there is a cure for cancer, yet because companies make billions off treatment it’s been hushed up! John Hopkins has great studies on Vit D3 you should read on what having enough of this vitamin can prevent! Standards say optimal range on blood lab is 50-70 ! Does your doctor check your vitamin D3 each year? It cost $25 most places and you can get vit D3 naturally from sun 15 min a day, plus over counter supplements! If d3 levels are below range a person functions yet gets sick alot😷. If vit D3 goes below 15 cancer may start in body! I’m not a doctor , I read a lot to educate myself, to gain knowledge ! Hope this helps someone blessings!

        1. Thank you and I am sure that it will.
          Vitamin D levels are usually so low in so many of us. The regular / common blood tests do not check for much of these things and do not check systems…very sad.

  5. I won’t be first in line but more like center back!

    1. Lol, I like that, caution = wisdom.

      1. Right! 😁

  6. I am glad you are better little sister. In my state the healthcare providers will get it first, so there will be time for me to decide since I would be in line later.

    1. Thank you. God is given ALL the credit, I cannot take any credit.
      Many of the doctors and nurses I have asked do not want the vaccine either.
      So we will see.

  7. Robert and I had Covid19 and continue to have a multitude of aftereffects. We are in our seventies with chronic health problems. We think we may have some permanent damage, including heart damage. I am looking for a cardiologist, because we just moved here in February and don’t have one here yet. Robert had a negative nasal swab test last week.We are dealing with questions similar to yours. My doctor thinks it is unlikely that I still have antibodies, but says I may still be immune to a second infection.

    1. Praising God for your recovery🎉🙌🏻🙏🏻❤️

    2. I am so sorry to hear about your health troubles. Let’s keep each other in prayer on a continuous cycle.
      There are still sooo many unknown variables to this illness…only God can help us.

  8. I am praying for a quality vaccine, but we won’t know if the first round is truly quality just yet. So no, I will not be first in line. I continue to work on keeping my immune system well in order to ward off all types of viruses and other germs. I’ve been taking Airborne (including off brands) every day since Spring and also take Vitamin D3 daily, along with other supplements. Take care, dear sister!

    1. Great to hear from you. I understand your position. I have been keeping the immune system up as well.
      Take care and be well!

  9. Grateful to God that you have fully recovered. Love that you will keep tabs by taking regular tests too.
    Happy Thanksgiving, sis. 😊
    Greetings to your family. 🤗

    1. Thank you my sister. Stay well!

  10. I’m a little scared…

    1. I know the feeling.
      Stay safe.

  11. I’m ready as soon as they get around to my age group. I’ve got one sleeve rolled up and I’m waiting. Weighing the slight danger any vaccine presents against the massive danger of the virus makes it a simple choice.

    I’m glad you recovered.

    1. Lol. Hopefully you have gotten or will get your vaccine soon. God bless you and Merry Xmas!

      1. And may the new year bring us all health and safety.

  12. Considering the situation in Malaysia, the vaccination is broken down into several phases namely:-

    Phase 1 – February to April 2021, will cover 500,000 frontliners who are directly involved in the fight against Covid-19.

    Phase 2 – April to August 2021, will target 9.4 million people who are in the high-risk group, comprising senior citizens above 60 years old, people with non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, and people with disabilities

    Phase 3 – May 2021 to February 2022, is for all remaining individuals including adults aged 18 years and above

    There are several reasons why vaccines are not rolled out at the same time and instead by phases.

    First is the number of vaccines available is not enough to roll out to all in one go. Malaysia is yet to start it’s own manufacturing of the vaccines although some memorandums have been signed with some foreign pharmaceutical companies.

    Second is the government is also looking at different manufacturer of vaccines other than the famed Pfizer vaccine. Some of these vaccines like one from China’s Sinovac is still pending trials and approvals.

    Third is convincing citizens to trust and go for vaccination. Not surprisingly there are some people who still not convinced of the effectiveness of vaccines. Registration via the MySejahtera app is still low despite the government’s campaigns and reminders.
