There's no conclusive evidence to any of the choices above! If I don't plan on getting the vaccine because I get or got antibodies why shouldn't you give that as an option?
Maybe the option should be "decide then based on info available if I should get vaccinated even though I have antibodies"
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Good suggestion, but that is just creating more blurred lines. The big picture should be about immunity not administering a vaccine.
If you look at confirmed effectiveness (assuming when that happens) standpoint.
Having antibodies that are proven to give immunity is same as being vaccinated and that should be the appropriate answer.
Having antibodies that are not (yet) proven to give immunity is same as not planning to get vaccinated and that should be the appropriate answer.

I disagree with this. Even with it unproven they are still very much presumed to provide immunity.

I'm not trying to disagree with anyone. At least I want it only proven facts not assumptions or presumptions. Many people will still disagree even with proven facts.

If you care about immunity and antibodies you have are proven not to give immunity but vaccines does, you will still get vaccinated right?
If you don't care about immunity with or with out any antibodies you will not get vaccinated right?

My statement still stands.

How can anyone answer this question without knowing the (real) risks that will be associated with the vaccine?

That must  be why no one chose these two options:

The options are fine, they just seem to belong to a different, more narrow question than the one in the subject line.  It looks like @TheDroid wants to know:

Did you get the MMR vaccine?  Will you make the same decision regarding a future COVID-19 vaccine?

Though I agree with posters who think it's too early to make any decision.

That would make sense because nobody who knows the real risks would ever choose those.

I was using MMR as an example because the measles outbreak was one of the latest and in the spotlight, even technically I really don't need to be specific to MMR.

I also assume that if there were any vaccines, it would be safe. Otherwise, it wouldn't be a marketable vaccine right? So I'm looking more for people who are genuinely afraid of vaccines due to (debunked, but alleged) side effects.

Conclusion for this hour long media, 1 thinks vaccine is good, 1 thinks vaccine is bad, 1 is a referee adding more heat, 0 facts provided to audience.

This is why media these days are a waste of time.
They don't provide you facts. They just bring people to talk.
They pit 2 or more biased opinion people to argue each other.
I can be on any of these shows and talk whatever crap I wanted to.
The more famous the bigger d**ks they are.
This is no different then watching wrestling trash talk just without one sneaking up and slapping another with a chair.
I get more useful stuff watching Oprah or HSN.
Waste of time.

This is a faulty premise. After years of R&D, the MMR vaccine has been administered hundreds of millions of doses over many decades. You cannot equate that, with a vaccine that would presumably be available to the public within 12 months of mapping the genome for SARS-CoV-2.

Hmm. I would definitely rate it higher than that
Alan Dershowitz seemed to be convinced by many of the arguments.
Usually a debate noone convinces anyone just a useless argument, this I thought was different.
