Are you getting the vaccine?

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey »

OK, let's open this can of worms here.

I am letting everyone vote for more than one answer.

Oh. And I have a typo. "Already" not "Almost."

This is a fine thread.

I think there should be an option for "I will if the opportunity presents itself."

I will defer until after the people that need it most get theirs. This vaccine hogging that I have seen on the news is ridiculous.

What will do is this - if someone wants that option, pick two of the three answers. So we know it registers. And then write that here. In the comments. Cap eeesh?

Post-editing can't help if I haven't been jabbed? I'm changing the answers then?

Does anyone think that it would help post-jab?

I got the first round last week and I don't give a fuck what anyone thinks about my decision.

I chose "yes and no", because if my work or my wife says, here, go here to get vaccinated, I'll be like, sure thing boss! And if nobody does that, I'll just sit here.

Will you think more of us if we agree with your decision?

I'm sort of hoping for a 50/50 mix of my friends in terms of getting the vaccine. That way, if some of them get turned into a horrible mutant with ten eyes on stalks and the ability to breathe fire, I can go catch covid with the other half.

So no matter what your wife decides, I win.

I mentioned I got the vaccine on social media and immediately started getting passive-aggressive comments. "Wow, how lucky you got it, my (family member who they think deserves it more then me) hasn't been able to get it yet. How again did you get on the list?" Add that to my in-laws who literally told us "enjoy your government chips" and... yeah. I just can't worry about what people think any more. I'm done being the mask police, the vaccine police, the social distancing police, whatever. At this point I'm just about keeping me and my family alive.

Right? I cant imagine not being happy for everyone who gets it. There's a chance I get a call this month because they will have to throw some shots away otherwise. I can get to the hospital in 10 minutes, 9 if the flash drive is playing pop punk. Life happens. I want health care professionals, supermarket workers and O.J. Simpson to get it before me, but in my case, if it means I get a shot because those people can't make it to town fast enough, I'm in.

I can't IMAGINE following someone on social media and not being thrilled they got the vaccine.

Well, I'm pumped as hell that my pal Flack has it. The world is a better place for it and that is the truth. That's option 4, which I have now enabled in the mirror phpBB2 site poll.

When it gets as casual as a flu shot is when I'm getting one, after the privilege factor is gone. My friend, a radiologist, who works with cancer patients every day, gets the same 'oh, you must be so lucky' attitude by some of her social cretins. Everyone will be able to enjoy the vaccine eventually, there's no need to get all snarky about it

My wife constantly reminds me that "there's enough success to go around" and it has really changed my life.

"You must be so lucky to have had to seen infected people for a year." I'm sure it was a thrill.

People are so goddamn stupid.
