The specific proteins used in this vaccine are new, but the mRNA technology and methodology has been around for years. It's been used for other virus' and in some cancer treatments.I don’t want to get one for two very simple reasons. #1, I hate getting shots. #2, I talked to a nurse I know and she said she will not get one unless she absolutely has to because there hasn’t been a long enough test period for it. Usually it takes years of testing for something to be deemed safe but this one has what, 1.5, 2 years of testing? I won’t buy a new 500i until they’ve been stress-tested and all the kinks worked out so why in the hell would I put something into my body that hasn’t been stress-tested?
