What I hear in this thread from some is "We don't need no stinkin' vaccine"
The underlying reason for this position is an unconscious fear of a lack or macho or manliness.
The same applies to wearing a mask. (This is not a political statement.)
Just as homophobia really means a fear of being gay......anti vacc and mask are fears of not being manly enough.
If you worry about your macho (unconsciously),you may have a problem.
I get all shots that are available and if some don't work like the annual flu shot (sometimes),then I have not lost anything.
The funny thing is that in the past,the big anti vaccers were Liberal millenials who feared the shots could cause autism.

To be honest, I did not know there was any controversy surrounding a potential covid-19 vaccine.
Heck, if the researchers can actually get a vaccine developed and approved in less than a year, that is a monumental achievement.

I can see people passing out doing cardio.
