It says "I plan to wait before I get the vaccine", not "I plan to wait and see/decide".
Why would you wait once it’s available to you if you know you’re getting it?

Who knows? I didn't vote for that option :)
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

But that would be the correct option for someone in your case. Choosing to wait means incorporating future information to make your decision.

All who agree with me like this post. ;)

I think the best argument for waiting is that more effective vaccines may emerge and those who got an early one will be precluded by vector immunity, but for me, better one bird in the hands than 2 on the tree.

Anybody who is truly worried about side effects or long term effects, is either hypercritical or doesn't drive/eat processed foods/sugar etc.

Anybody who isn't worried about Covid damages is uninformed or delusional. There is no argument to be made.

This is just anecdotal, but I know a lot of people in the hospital I'm in seemed hesitant about getting the vaccine when it was hypothetical. Then when they actually offered it to us, almost everyone I know jumped at the chance, to the extant that people were renting cars to go to satellite hospitals over an hour away that still had supply.

I think when people are actually offered an opportunity to take it, its going to be hard to actually turn that down.

Exactly. A lot of the “Well, I want to wait and see..” is going to fade quickly once it’s accepted and accessible.

Wouldn't that be the definition of wait and see?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Also, there are a lot of people who would like to see an approved vaccine that requires just 1 dose so those people probably would choose the wait and see option because the current available vaccines require 2 doses.

Even if two doses would be available to them long before the one dose option?

Honestly don't know. I guess it would depend if long meant years vs months - I'm guessing they'd be willing to wait a couple of months but if its years and the 2 dose is widely available to the public then I'm assuming that not.

You know anyone like this ?

Yes, I do. There are plenty of people out there, even adults that are averse to shots. The discussion wasn't if they wouldn't get it at all because its 2 shots but that they'd be much more willing if its a 1 shot deal.

I'm sorry but a poll with a sample size of 16 is meaningless

As of this post, there's 34 responses and the results are showing that double the amount of people who never had COVID would be willing to vaccinate. 18 vs 9.

So I wouldn't call a sample size of 34 very meaningful but its not totally meaningless either and continues to prove that @YitzyS  hunch was correct.

Yes. That’s my prediction of the “Wait and see” cohort’s eventual decision.
