I would be very reluctant to get the first vaccine that came out of this hasty pipeline, especially since 1) Even if I get COVID-19 I most likely will either never know it or suffer only minor ailments, and 2) there are now a variety of treatments even if I get really sick.

I would rather wait a couple of years until they find a vaccine and have a chance to fully vet it.

“I would rather wait a couple of years until they find a vaccine and have a chance to fully vet it. “

I feel the same way, especially following the epic failure of one of a prospective SARS vaccines, which actually resulted in a much WORSE illness when animal subjects were infected with a later, mutated disease. That study was actually one of the first things I read when Covid-19 (a later version of SARS) started getting publicity and I thought “Oh, no”.
