    Really surprised by the responses in the other thread, so thought I'd ask a simple question. are you personally more worried about Covid19, or the vaccine RIGHT NOW in December 2020?

    I find both of the other covid threads scarier then either of them.

    The vaccine will be fine....covid has come and it will go. But I'm still stuck on this planet with the the big part of humanity's bell curve. It's distressing.

    Also, isn't the split over in that thread more or less representative of the population?

    Masks are scarier. Who knows what people are hiding under those masks.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    The vaccine will be administered to tens or hundreds of millions before it gets to most of us. I have 99.5% confidence we won't see any serious effects in the meantime... though this does look suspiciously similar to the start of 28 Days Later.

    While there has been general anxiety in the public over everything, I think most in Canada have held themselves together reasonably well. Especially in times of racial issues boiling over and political unrest (mainly in the US but here too).

    I was actually more concerned about the public going nutzoid than anything else. I mean, if you were ever gonna knock over a corner store or rob someone on the street, a time where mask-wearing is mandated is possibly the best time ever. Yet, as far as I know, despite some in financial crisis right now, crime has remained fairly flat. I expected people to panic (which they initially did) but figured that panic would rise proportionate to the severity of the virus, but that hasn't really happened. People are doing their best to adapt and live as well as they can under the circumstances, and more understanding and education has helped make that happen. It was scary when the first wave hit. Governments and citizens alike freaked out. But now only the activists are really still up in arms... no surprise there.

    Despite the pat on the back I just gave our public, the social dynamic, political fervor and paranoia has been fascinating to watch during these times. The pandemic sucks, but all things considered it hasn't exactly been the black plague. If some actual massive event actually caused a mini-apocalypse, I think a portion of our population would be very quick to become survivalist and abandon the structure of society as they know it. Seems the fabric is very thin...

    It's hard to choose a clear winner out of two things that are not scary in any way, shape, or form. Kind of a nonsensical question. It's like asking what tastes better, air or water?

    Fake poll.

    No option for both.

    The answer is neither. Driving to catch a trans pacific flight still has more risks that those two combined.

    Not afraid of either, per say, but I am being cautious. Not overly, as in it isn't stopping me from doing most things that are currently ok with the restrictions. Most of my apprehension centers around my MIL that lives with us, and I can 100% guarantee that if she does catch it, it's game over for sure with her current medical conditions.

    I'm curious if people are actually being serious with their answers.

    You see this a lot with polls on Beyond, either there are a ton of lurkers, or people are fucking with the poll results. Because there is maybe one or two posters that I think actually find the vaccine "scary".

    As spikers said, I'm cautious, but vaccines are essentially the backbone of modern society. What I find more concerning is that the crisis was essentially manufactured by delaying the rollout of a vaccine that was ready two days after western countries knew there was a pandemic in the making.

    Scared of vaccine? Definitely not. Scared of big pharma and government authoritarianism? Absolutely.

    Isn't this is same argument the anti-vaxxers have? Why be afraid of something you have a 99.7% chance of surviving?

    How do you know if people take this vaccine it'll be a 99.7% chance of surviving? None of these vaccines have been administered in a large scale like its about to be.

    That stat is the average UN-VACCINATED Canadian's chance of surviving
