It seems like the Coronavirus is gaining again in many US States. There is already talk of more lockdowns in some States, etc.

Already warnings of people gathering (or not) for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holidays, Christmas Holidays, etc.

Good news is there have also been some possible vaccines approved or under approval that may help in the fight against the virus.

Will be glad when this is all over, and hope that will be soon.

Well, supposedly there are several different possible vaccines for the coronavirus that may be available to the public before very long. I have read that there may be unpleasant side effects, however, but we will learn more as we go along.

Is it to early to expect everyone to just go ahead and get this shot or should there be a longer time to learn more about these vaccines, since it seems they were discovered or put together very quickly.

Thoughts or Opinions??

Several new coronavirus vaccines have been approved and are being distributed in many places in the US (and other countries) recently. First to receive the vaccines are health care providers, people in nursing homes, etc.

There is also an "at home" test kit:

Several people have experienced various allergic reactions and other reactions to some of these new drugs so far.

The Coronavirus continues to be a major news story in 2021. Several vaccines have been approved and are being given out in many areas of the US and other countries, although, there are also still many deaths from the virus every day. Many of these deaths are from people who also had underlying conditions as well.

Hopefully the New Year will see this coronavirus go away for good.

Johnson & Johnson now has a coronavirus vaccine that may be atleast 60% effective against the coronavirus disease. This 3rd vaccine joins two others that have proven to be in some ways effective against the coronavirus. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a one dose vaccine while the others are two doses.

Given the way things are rolling out? It will be a long time before I can get it. And I'm in one of the groups that should get it early given my chronic health issues.

The coronavirus pandemic is still going on but seems to be letting up a bit as time goes on and more vaccine medicines are discovered, etc. Millions of people have already received one of the vaccine's. Last count, If I remember correctly, there were atleast 3 different vaccines being given out.

Recently one vaccination site in Colorado had to shut down as several people were experincing severe reactions to the shots.

Reactions are normal. Almost every single medication (even the "safe" otc's) have a risk. You have to decide for yourself if the risk is worth taking. I've gotten shots where I had no issues and then years later get some nasty kind of revenge. Every single human is different. So each medication can have it's own kind of reaction. I am worried that they might have rushed things too fast. But given the bad shape some of the job markets are. A risk so we can get back to some kind of normal is worth taking.
