I'll need to do some research to decide if it's right for me.

My religion forbids this vaccine.

It's a matter of my freedom to not take this vaccine.

This "I Am Legend" reboot is slow to get going.

How's the 5G reception?

Let's wait for it to appear in peer reviewed journals, not Salon which publishes articles from interns about what on Fox News last night made them angry.

Remember you get more research time in if you prep the night before by eating a Taco Bell 6 pack and getting drunk on tequila slammers.

That's basically a cure for the common cold then eh?
It'd be nice if it pans out

One vaccine to rule them all, one vaccine to find them, one vaccine to bring them all, and in the darkness inject 5G mind controlling nano-chips.

Hey now, there's no cause to bring logic and facts into an internet vaccine discussion. That sort of thing is just frowned upon. Next you'll be expecting people to actually trust scientists and experts. That's chaos!

...does this mean we're close to finding the cure for the common cold?

HOOOLY hell

"common cold" just means a "mild viral infection," coronaviruses are only one kind. until CV came around the only coronavirus you were likely to get was the common cold therefore science writers would oversimplify.

moreover the vaccine would still mean you'd get slightly sick, it's not an enchantment by dumbledore where the virus particles bounce off you. in other words, it wouldn't do anything that having gotten the cold as a child would not do already. if you're a weak person the common cold can kill you. it's not an inherently mild virus only that everyone's already had it so the infections are mild.

Good, you'll be in line behind me.

There's a fix for that -- more religious holidays if you can't call in sick with a bad cold anymore.

Universal vaccine, provincial protest. It'll be fun.

Most common colds are not coronaviruses.

But let's not set any barriers in their way as long as they're adding features to their vaccine.

Only Rataxes has to worry about the rhinoviruses anyway.

They're just a burden which you'll have to bear.

Well if half of us won't take it and the virus becomes more deadly, then i am looking forward to earth's new golden age.
