Just play it safe, by contracting Covid-19 and recovering. You'll have strong antibodies, no fear in interacting with others, and can ignore any Covid-19 vaccine pressures going forward.

I agree , but what if a month from now you’re fighting for your life and the Novavax could have saved you or any of the others ?

Sounds good. I only looked up one reference though: Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine Less Likely to Cause Side Effects
Based on Novavax’s phase 3 clinical trials, their COVID-19 vaccine appears to have a substantially lower rate of side effects than the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines.
But what's behind this difference in side effects? It may due to the vaccine mechanisms at work.
The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines and the Novavax protein-based subunit vaccine were developed using different technology.
Then it goes on to explain Subunit Vaccines.
The Johnson & Johnson uses a method called Viral vector.
First, the vector (not the virus that causes COVID-19, but a different, harmless virus) will enter a cell in our body and then use the cell’s machinery to produce a harmless piece of the virus that causes COVID-19. This piece is known as a spike protein and it is only found on the surface of the virus that causes COVID-19.
Next, the cell displays the spike protein on its surface, and our immune system recognizes it doesn’t belong there. This triggers our immune system to begin producing antibodies and activating other immune cells to fight off what it thinks is an infection.
At the end of the process, our bodies have learned how to protect us against future infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. The benefit is that we get this protection from a vaccine, without ever having to risk the serious consequences of getting sick with COVID-19. Any temporary discomfort experienced after getting the vaccine is a natural part of the process and an indication that the vaccine is working.
The warning though: However, women younger than 50 years old should especially be aware of the rare risk of blood clots with low platelets after vaccination.
So wanting to discuss a different vaccine is being a government shill ? Lol

Pretty sure I had the rona. And if I didnt really not too worried. I have no health issues, I smoke, which I guess helps keep me from getting it. I'd have to find that article. And how much do you get paid for being a goverment shill? Do they give decent benifits still? I'm looking for a new gig. a reply to: ThothHermes
Good question. My wife & I were scheduled for the J&J when 36hrs before our shots , the FDA pulled it & now it’s back ?

I wonder why the J&J vaccine is never discussed when discussing the covid vaccines. I too am weary of the mRNA technology used by the majority, but that's exactly why my wife and I got the J&J vaccine. It uses the same technology that has been used in the ebola vaccine which although newish has still been vetted for several years in human trials at this point. It's effective enough that only 1 dose is needed and has a much better track record than Moderna, pfizer etc.
Is it just a matter of folks forgetting it exists? Is it harder to get? Is it a matter of personal bias with folks who are antivax leaving it out of conversations to dwell on the more risque vaccines in order to dissuade people from covid vaccines altogether?
It's really something I don't understand, It's very weird it's almost never brought up. My friends in the tech & medical industries have almost all gotten it over the mRNA vaccines but out side of those circles it seems like it's rarely discussed. And the conspiracy side who are antivax almost completely fail to bring it up when discussing them.
