“No, I don’t have any issues with it because it seems to be working with a lot of people. Some people do have some reactions to it, but we are all different. Those people with negative reactions may just have some allergic reaction to the vaccine.”

“Yes. There is not enough information and scientific evidence about this vaccine to make me feel as if it is safe to take. In my opinion, taking something that we are unsure of can do us more harm than good.”

“I work at the hospital in Hays, Kansas. I have had it, and I had symptoms and such, but it served me fine. I fully recovered from it in a few days, and I haven’t had any side effects.”

“I do not have any concerns. I know that people usually feel ill for a day or two afterward but feeling sick for a bit is far better than getting the virus and risking serious complications.”

“Yes, I have concerns regarding the Covid-19 vaccine. There isn’t enough information for me to know if it could cause harm to me or not. Yes, we need a vaccine, but we also need to make sure that this vaccine is scientifically sound before we give it to the population.”

“Not really, I’m not going to be one of the first people to get it, so I will probably be able to find out if there are any other people having side effects by that time.”
