Despite this, I understand being a bit hesitant. Unless you have had some training/education in a relevant field and a lot of time to follow the development and testing process over the past year, you are being asked to take on faith that the Covid vaccines are good. That faith may be in short supply after the serious mistakes the scientific and health communities made, starting with the early claims that border closures and masks don't work. And there's a wealth of contradictory and alarming information that you encounter online and from friends and family, and no clear way to judge what information to trust.
So if you or any of your loved ones are hesitant about getting vaccinated for any reason - side effects, speed of development, the testing process, whatever - get in touch with me and I'd be happy to talk it over.
I for one am absolutely delighted to get vaccinated and celebrate each time one of my friends and family gets that same opportunity. I hope you and yours get that chance soon too, and take it.
*I am personally still moderately sceptical of the efficacy of the Russian, Chinese and Indian Covaxin vaccines, though I am glad they exist, would definitely take them if I didn't have alternatives, and am hopeful my concerns will prove to be misplaced.
