‘When there is a vaccine for the coronavirus, will you take it?’


Oliver Bouie


“I would not take it. I believe that they’re rushing it and not taking the proper time to make sure that all of the side effects of the vaccine [are] taken into consideration. Also, I believe that if I take the necessary precautions and follow the instructions of the experts, I think I’ll be good.”

“I don’t think so. I don’t think it’s been tested long enough on enough people. They’re saying it might be ready by the election and I’m not buying that.”

Jay Davis

“Something fishy is going on and I don’t want to be no guinea pig for the government. I think I’d have to wait a while and see what happens.”

Oliver Vargas

“I wouldn’t want to be the first to take it, but eventually I think I would. We’re never going to get rid of the virus if no one takes the vaccine. It’s going to take some brave people at first and that probably won’t be me. But eventually, yes.
