I don't think it's as much pure anti-vaccers

that are worried this time around (obviously they'll always be). There is a group of people worried about the speed to market issue of these vaccines.

My wife gets the flu shot every year (although she hates shots), and our kids always do as well. So she is far from being an anti-vaccer. Our kids are up to date on all their shots.

She is just concerned that this is a new kind of vaccine (the mRNA vaccines, which have never been used before) and is being rushed to market faster than any other vaccine in history. I believe there was a swine or avian flu vaccine that was pushed through as quickly but never went to market because the virus puttered out.

I think it's a fair concern, although I always err on the side of science and would be fine taking it myself. I do fear for giving it to my kids right off the bat, though. Particularly since they are not very susceptible to the actual disease. I figure if the high risk people take the vaccine, there is no rush for my kids to. I imagine I'll have them take it if/when the schools tell them they can't come in without one.
