1. No long term effects study (obviously.)
Usually vaccines don't have such long time effects, either it works or not, either it brings collateral damage or not, but if it does, it does it pretty soon.
Long term studies are usually needed because the studies are damend slow and it takes long time to get a decent tested-people base.
This is not the case as there have been a huge amount money getting flooded into the studies, what has accelerated the research a lot and there has been a lot of people for the tests in the pre-market phases, bringing the same numbers in a couple of weeks that would usually take years in other studies.

2. No data on how long the immunity lasts (because it's so new)
Agree on this. But... I think that even if it wasn't more than a year or two... it would still help a lot to slow down the ratios right now until there is something better.
Marc Clifton wrote:
3. It doesn't appear to prevent the spread of COVID, just the symptoms.
About the spread... I partially agree with you. But one of the most important aspects is that it helps reducing the severity if you get it.

I do choose not to get the vaccine and I'll be damned if government or my neighbor has the authority to force me to.
And that's fine for me
Marc Clifton wrote:
Now granted, I would never stop someone from getting the vaccine
The same as you should not be forced to get it.
Free will, my / your decission

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
