How Many are Willing to Get the COVID-19 Vaccine?

With the recent vaccine for the Coronavirus that has come out, I wanted to interview a few people to see whether or not they would get it and why. The answers all varied. Everyone had their reasons for getting the vaccine or not getting the vaccine. These are what the interviewees had to say about the vaccine.  

Would you get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Lynn Godwin says that she would not get the vaccine.

“Well I’ve had Covid. When you get the Covid, if you’ve done any research, you have the antibodies. The antibodies can stay in your body anywhere from three to nine months, depending on the person. But because the vaccine, in my eye, is experimental, I’m not going to inject myself with something that, you know, I don’t know what it is. And since I’ve got the antibodies, I feel like I can kind of wait a little while and see what some of the side effects that people are having,” Godwin says.

Jonie Howell says that she is still debating whether she wants to get it or not.

“The pros for getting it, for why I would want to get it, are because it would help reduce catching Covid. The cons are, it just, it came out too quickly, and I don’t think enough research has been done, and testing, to make sure it’s safe in long term effects,” Howell says.

Reya Peedin would get the vaccine. They say that “ It would help us slowly get the number of cases down.”

Is there anything that would change your mind?

Godwin wouldn’t change her mind, at least not right now.

“No, because you can research all that {the ingredients and what exactly the vaccine is} and you can watch videos. It just doesn’t interest me right now because I can wait,” Godwin says.

Howell says, “ I think if they took more time to test it, to make sure it’s safe, I would probably reconsider, and feel safer getting it.”

Peedin says, “If something comes out about it having bad stuff that would harm them or others” then she wouldn’t get or wait until a safer on comes out.
