You say the shot is nothing but follow that right after with fearing “putting shit” in your body and worry about possible “long term effects.” Thats classic vaccine fear.
As I said: consider that countless people, from teens to old people have had no problem rolling up their sleeves for the shot. Hundreds of millions in the USA. BILLIONS around the world. Does it really strike you as reasonable, 1/2 a year later to still be so worried?
Virtually every expert in immunology, communicable disease and vaccines is saying “get the shot, it’s very effective and has a very good safety profile!”
All of them got vaccinated when they could.
What is it that they know that you don’t?
They understand the history of vaccines, the design of the current vaccines, the safety and efficacy data.
They will tell you that there is no good reason to expect sudden “long term side effects” to pop out of nowhere far down the line. Severe side effects are very uncommon EVEN in those few vaccines in the past that were pulled from use!
In the entire hundreds of years long history of vaccines there has never been a severe side effect that occurred beyond 6 weeks after injection, most much closer to the time of injection. That’s why the clinical trials went longer than six weeks to catch anything.
The trials were large enough so that of any severe side effects existed they would be very rare. And the real world data from hundreds of millions of vaccinated have shown this to be the case. The original study cohorts still followed and over a year later and no problems. They are about as safe as vaccines get.
The fears people have are virtually always from their own lack of knowledge or from misinform, both of which should be easily remedied. It’s right to think critically about any of this. But then there is cynicism. If you go in to educating yourself full of cynicism about governments or scientists you are liable to either reject facts or be led down rabbit holes of misinformation. There are all too many stories now of folks who let their cynicism get the best of them, leading to putting off the vaccine, and regretting it ending up on oxygen or ventilators.
