it is hard to answer poll since I dont know how quickly it will be rolled out and how quickly it will be made available to someone fitting my profile during rollout.  but I intend to take it as soon as I can.

I assume you're asking if people would take it right away or wait until it's been better tested.  It's worded like you're asking when it will be available to you.

As soon as possible which probably means that medical providers would have taken it for an additional quarter or so which by that point it would have more data.  Frankly, the comfort of knowing that the vaccine protects 95% will be big mental relieve.

I'm in no rush to take it as I'm young and healthy. But we like to travel and looks like international travel will require it once it's widely available. Sooo, next time I want to take an international vacation i'll probably get the shot. By then, most of the kinks should be worked out, much more data etc.

based on this,  I'll get it after about 97% of Americans. My wife (who works in a hospital) will get it after 3% (potentially 1st dose in December, though there are more front-line types that are presumably ahead of her)
