I admit I was on the fence given the speed of development, use of new tech,


and lack of long term safety data.

I then did my due diligence regarding the use of mRNA in this setting and vaccines in general. The fact is is that historically, significant issues with vaccines have presented within the first two months of use. We have longer data than that already for these vaccines.

From a statistical perspective, let's assume that there's a 1 in a million chance that you can get a terrible side effect like an auto immune disorder. The chances of getting side effects from or dying of COVID are higher than that for most people. Hell, the odds of dying in a car accident far exceed 1 in a million, but we do that every single day without hesitation.

Given all of this, as well as the fact that we just can't wait five or ten years for long term data, I decided to trust the science and scientists as I've always stated. Basically put my money where my mouth is.
