So I see that opinions are split on the vaccine. Some people are saying it's safe and the risks of it are worth it, compared to getting Covid.
However I'm not sure how they can be so sure, seeing that the vaccine was made in a rush and there were reports of the thrombosis in some people. Considering how pushed the vaccine is good narrative is in the media, it seems to me getting even a few reports about bad cases might mean there could be much more bad cases, but just banned/unreported/ignored.
Also I've read that the Covid vaccine is fundamentally different from the other vaccines that we are all used to. From https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines/mrna.html:
mRNA vaccines are a new type of vaccine to protect against infectious diseases. To trigger an immune response, many vaccines put a weakened or inactivated germ into our bodies. Not mRNA vaccines. Instead, they teach our cells how to make a protein—or even just a piece of a protein—that triggers an immune response inside our bodies. That immune response, which produces antibodies, is what protects us from getting infected if the real virus enters our bodies.
It makes me wonder: the need for the Covid vaccine is urgent, so why make the new type of mRNA vaccine, when we could just make a usual vaccine made of the weakened virus? A middle of epidemic doesn't feel like a good time to hurriedly create and test a completely new kind of vaccine.
So, what are your opinions on the vaccine? Why wouldn't they make a usual vaccine and instead push for the new mRNA vaccine?
