Are you taking, or have taken, the COVID-19 vaccine? Why or why not?
I’ve been officially offered the vaccine in the current USA phase of vaccination due to being an education worker,

& so many thoughts are swirling in my head about whether to get it or not.

After hearing about my student teaching district will be returning to in-person teaching in a hybrid model,

I literally had an anxiety attack in the middle of the night, agonizing over the pros and cons of this.😞

There was no risk whatsoever doing my student teaching distanced learning, allowing me to simultaneously finish my schooling and bide time for the pandemic to pass.

Now there’s health risk on both sides no matter what I do!

On one hand, being around unvacccinated kids 4 days a week for several hours a day, when my state (California) and region (Sa Bernardino county) will be barely out of maximum risk rating for COVID cases for the first time in a year, without being vaccinated... sounds like a bad idea, especially living with someone that is high-risk.

On the other hand, this vaccine was rolled out EXTREMELY quickly, and there has been literally no time to test for long term side effects. Recalls and class action suits for bodily damages happen all the time years down the road in the medical field with medical products, and a situation like this rushed vaccine can easily be one of those cases.

With my school district in the United States going hybrid with the schooling (I’m a student teacher), and juveniles not being yet vaccinated,

I did decide to get the vaccine (Phizer vaccine, had the 2nd and final shot a week ago).
