1. No long term effects study (obviously.)
It is not a new substance that we need to test for years. It's mRna, and we know how the body reacts and how it works.

2. No data on how long the immunity lasts (because it's so new)
For some diseases, a lifetime. Let's hope this one too; but with this rate of mutation, I'm more worried it will become the next flu. That would mean a new vaccine every year Smile | :)

3. It doesn't appear to prevent the spread of COVID, just the symptoms.
It's a vaccine; meaning it teaches your immune-system how the virus looks before you get infected. Yes, you can still get the virus and when you do, you can infect others. But you will not be as sick as without the vaccine, since your immune system is already prepared for it. So, during those sick days you stay home.

There's no 100% prevention. Take a flu shot, you can still get the flu. It doesn't prevent you from getting it. But if you do get it, the immune system is prepared and you're a lot less sick than without that shot.

4. Immunization with SARS coronavirus vaccines leads to pulmonary immunopathology on challenge with the SARS virus - PubMed[^] Granted, #2 is a small study published in 2012.
A study on mice. While we share a lot of DNA, we do look quite different from mice.

An while I am not an anti-vaxxer
You present four arguments that a non-medic can disprove, to justify not taking the vaccine. That's an anti-vaxxer (who, ironically, has already been vaccinated against a lot of diseases).
