    Well, I wouldn't be 1st in line for it but I'd sure be open minded about it if people were dropping dead all around me.

    The main thing about vaccines you have to keep in mind is efficacy, this is why vaccines go to trials before being declared viable. The vaccine was most likely developed in a similar manner as other vaccines and also most likely won't 'hurt' you. That said, it might not help you either. Putting in millions upon millions into something that when used does 'jack all' to stop the disease isn't the best move. IMO, they will boot any potential vaccine into trials immediately and continue working on antiviral medications to treat those in the early stages of infection.

    Well, this sounds kind of brutal, but the vaccine will be tested on the Chinese first. By the time it's available for Americans it will have a track record. At that point I'd take it with little reservation.

    No matter how big, no matter how small we are all still human beings. The average person in China probably doesn’t ‘love’ Communism anymore than most Americans do. Also, I don’t weigh even close to 200 pounds and I’m a ‘real’ person.
