Actually, for the reason that this virus has not turned out to be nearly as bad as people claimed it would be at first.
But it is worse than many other people claim it to be to avoid complying.

And then the CDC keeps flip flopping it's position on masks and how the thing spread.
Not defending them, but with new situations it is logical to keep correcting the output depending on new incoming data. It is the same as in every regulation process, the output depends on the current situation and the fluctuation of the input.

And now there are variants that the vaccine does not address.
That's something that I was expecting to happen, if the virus started to mutate. I was kind of hoping he would not, but as he has started... then it is kind of logical that the vaccines might loose effectivity against the new variations.
As in the flu vaccine, we need one for each season.

And the risk of any serious stuff happening for most people is so low.
Are you sure you are not Ryan?
Anyways... tell that to all the families that have lost people due to it.
I know already several families who have lost people due to it, mostly elders, ok. But not only, a guy that went to school with me (one year older than me) died and the kid (not sure about the age but not 18 yet) of a known person in my home town too.

I am happy that the real statistics are lower than expected at the very beginning (using the official numbers of JHU is a 2,16% right now) but to say "the risk is so low" I find it a bit out of place sorry. Consider you lucky if you leave in an area where the stats are so low that you think like that. Because it is not a nice situation.

And the vaccine has not been time-tested and proven.
Vaccines usually don't need time, they need numbers. And (if the numbers are real) there have been more people for the pre-market tests in these studies in some weeks that other studies of pharmacs / medicines get in years.

That's quite a few valid reasons for not jumping to get in line to get a shot.
Don't do it. As I told Eddy. Right now it still is voluntary, so everyone with their own 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.
