Dear Augusta Press Editor,

The person who is labeled vaccine hesitant is not one of the suckers born every minute. They refuse to blindly assume the known and unknown health risks of receiving an experimental vaccine while profit-driven drug companies are shielded from liability.

In 2005, a d...

  1. The past is something to study, in order to learn from collective mistakes. Thinking about profits only and not the potential benefits of getting the Covid vaccine is like cutting your nose off to spite your face. It’s OK to most of us if you are not one of our loved ones, or close friends, for you to die a horrible death in order to lower the drug companies profits, if that is your choice, but please stay isolated to not spread Covid-19 while you are protesting their profits and hard work to save the rest of us who are gladly taking the vaccine.

    • This is in response to Kevin’s post. There is so much information and misinformation out there that it difficult to make a decision. My advice is to talk with your doctor. Then make a decision based on his/her advice.

  2. With my objections, the Wife got the first shot (as an MCG retiree), 10-days later she was sick for five days with up to 103 fever, a rash around the shot area, no energy and slept most of that time. She just got the second one yesterday; this morning her fever is 101.5, body aches, no apatite and is now curled up on the couch with a cat. He seems to know she doesn’t feel well. I’m almost 72 and have no intentions of getting this, but will consider the J&J one dose, when/if it becomes available. Yes, I get the flu-shot yearly and never had a problem with it, as it’s time-proven to be effective.

  3. Fear of any medical treatment (or anything else for that matter) arises primarily from ignorance. In order to make a logically sound decision, an individual must understand the situation. Very few, aside from medical professionals have a really good understanding of this issue, so we must depend on those who do understand to guide us. Everything in life has a risk associated with it. I agree with the vast majority of physicians and medical scientists; for adults, the risk of not taking the vaccine is far greater than that of taking it. Particularly for those with predisposing issues.
