A lot of people will not take the coronavirus vaccine when it is available.


"More than 1 in 3 Americans surveyed in a NPR-PBS NewsHour-Marist poll released Friday say they will not get a coronavirus vaccine once it is available.

Thirty-five percent of respondents said they would not take the vaccine, 60 percent said they would and 5 percent said they were unsure.

Those with college degrees are 19 points more likely to take a vaccine than those without, 72 percent to 53 percent. Democrats were also more likely to be willing to take the vaccine than Republicans, 71 percent to 48 percent.

The poll noted that in 2009 only 51 percent said they would take a vaccine for H1N1, though that disease was less deadly and had a narrower impact on daily life.

Dozens of vaccines around the world are in the process of being developed, with a handful of them in the final phases of trials. The timeline is crunched significantly compared to the production of other vaccines, and even then, one is not expected to be available until early 2021."

It seems to me the powers to be have decided on letting 'herd immunity' happen and not worry over the number of people who may die until that day comes.

Not by choice but some leaders are already talking of making it mandatory. The Australian PM said 4 days ago it should be mandatory.

"Hong Kong (CNN)With one comment, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison managed to turn a positive coronavirus story into a public relations disaster, and highlighted the potential next nightmare of the pandemic: a fight over vaccines.
Speaking about a plan to provide free coronavirus immunization to all Australians as soon as that is possible, Morrison said Wednesday that he would "expect it to be as mandatory as you could possibly make it," with some exemptions on medical grounds.
His health minister, Karen Andrews, reiterated that line later, saying the government was "looking at it being a mandatory vaccine." But by Wednesday evening, Morrison was already backtracking, telling radio station 2GB that "it is not going to be compulsory to have the vaccine ... there are no compulsory vaccines in Australia."
"No one is going to force anybody to do anything as a compulsory measure, but we certainly will encourage people to take this up," Morrison said. "Everybody needs to understand what we are trying to achieve here.""

The coronavirus has been good for handymen and construction material sales. 3 of my friends are redoing their kitchens, patios and one is even having an out door barbecue/kitchen build by his pond. People are spending more time at home and remodelling them instead of going on vacation. It's good for home prices and the economy.

The day they find a vaccine that is safe and effective it will be the day we can start getting our lives back to what we had.

Why the shift in testing recommendation, so if you think you have been near a CV positive person and have no symptoms yourself you are not required to get tested?
