The top running vaccines seem effective and with low immediate side effects (optimist), although I wince when they say "It' safe!...." without really knowing 3 to 5 to 10 to 30 years down the road if there's something they missed just for lack of testing time

As much as I know how desperately we need this vaccine, I am concerned the rapidity of it's development and deployment has not allowed for sufficient long term testing on both safety and efficacy.
I believe vaccination for Covid is critical and necessary - but the skeptic in me is wary, oh so wary, of the fast tracked nature of this vaccine. As of now, my personal conundrum remains, and I am compelled to continue to research this matter intensely.

I see how it goes... Our Pastor died of COVID-19.

Who is responsible if the long term effects are no good? I've read the vaccine companies have immunity deals.
There has been no chance to investigate the long term effects.
99% of people who contract Covid survive if not more. The people who do die mostly have underlying causes like obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
The chances of contracting it are significantly lower in the country side where i chose to live.

If you don't want to be in the first few million to be given out, and would rather wait and see, I don't think anyone is going to protest. But they might, for example, stop you visiting Granny in the old people's home if you choose not to get vaccinated.
When will I get a vaccine?
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised that people are given the vaccine in the following order, although there is likely to be some overlap between groups:
residents in a care home for older adults, and their carers
everyone aged 80 and over, and frontline health and social care workers
everyone aged 75 and over
everyone aged 70 and over, and those who are clinically extremely vulnerable
everyone aged 65 and over
people aged 16 to 64 with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and death from Covid-19
everyone aged 60 and over
everyone aged 55 and over
everyone aged 50 and over

I thought nanotech was still science fiction. Do they have functional nanobots?

Medical experts say that anything above 33-35 CT is measuring an astronomically dilute solution of dead virus fragments, that is incapable of infecting anything, and means nothing. This is the kind of question that gets me scratching my head... and I've never seen any reference to this important part of the test on the news.
