If I have to make a guess as to what will happen: 30-40% of Western world population will not take it and the virus will still have mysteriously disappeared or won't be talked about in the news.

Regarding international travel, who is going to impose on Russian, Chinese, an American made vaccine while they claim their own? Question becomes what is an acceptable standard.

Then there will be the question of poor nation people not able to afford it and we will get an earful about compassion and the like and that they should still be allowed in without.

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)

Wife gets Pfizer vaccine on Monday (DC hospital, government affiliation, risky patient facing but not “front line” as in ER / ICU / covid unit)

 I imagine that most young and healthy people won't bother just like with the flu vaccine unless the government finds a way to force people to take it by imposing restrictions on people who aren't vaccinated. Even then they will probably still wait to see what happens to the guinea pigs receiving the first round of vaccinations.

As soon as it is offered to my age group. Death isn't the only possible bad outcome, this virus can cause damage through vasculitis in all kinds of organs including the brain. No thanks. I don't know why anyone would take that risk when a much much much less risky and highly effective vaccine is available.

i had it, no problem, just 2 weeks of some bed rest, as i would do with any other cold/flu. your conclusion is way out of proportion to statistical reality.

I've seen what Polio can do, and how easy it is to prevent it!

Attending live concerts, international travel, admittance to in-person university classes, contributing to the greater good as it relates to herd immunity.  And, you know, Gates and Soros whispering in your ear through the chip

Not being selfish and spreading it to the community and potentially harming / killing those at risk. I also know a healthy 30 year old who died... so there's that too.

Americans are way too skeptical of their government. Just take the damn vaccine to help yourself out and those around you. Be a good neighbor.
