Select qualitative responses

Please share any of your thoughts or concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine:

“Teachers should receive the vaccine right along with health care workers/elderly people.”

“I worry that the process was rushed too much for a political power play. I do not think there is enough information available for people with underlying health issues”

“I’m looking forward to the vaccine as a means of getting life back to normal.”

“I’m still on the fence about it. It was rushed through so quickly that I believe corners were cut. We won’t know any long term effects or the length of protection without longer studies.”

“I’m ready. I’m waiting.”

“I think more research is needed before recommendations can be made for vaccinating children.”

“Everyone should get the COVID vaccine.”

“Friend worked on vaccine for Pfizer and when he gets it we will, too, and encourage others also.”

“I’m on the fence about receiving it because we don’t know long term effects. Moderna sounds best to me. Getting vaccine vs. getting virus at age of 57 is probably a better choice.”
