    Selfishness. So many people suffering financial and health hardships and there are those who won't take a very small risk in order to end this pandemic. Ironically, many of them probably buy lottery tickets.

    And refuse to work because unemployment pays more.

    I notice said "frontline doctors" didn't dare put their names to this, nor footnotes to peer-reviewed studies.

    Anything of this nature is propaganda, not science.

    Dr. Shelly Cole.

    They like their jobs. Many a Dr has lost their job for voicing objections and reporting the dangerous side effects. This post was edited by my2cents at June 12, 2021 4:50 AM MDT

    If any physician lost their job for reporting true, legitimate side effects, I would like to see this data. That would be an outrage of epic proportion and deserves massive media coverage. Anyone who requires medical treatment post-vaccine, the medical provider is actually required to report potential reactions and side effects. 

    Ivermectin, really? Huh. I hadn't heard of that. Interesting.

    I've heard a variety of reasons. The most logical (to me) is concern because until COVID-19, this  specific type of vaccine hasn't been used on a mass scale. There is no data on long term effects. Many people are confident that their personal health, immune system is good enough to not be seriously ill from COVID. Many people have had COVID and didn't find it to be as serious an illness as Influenza strains. I know some people fear the reaction to or side effects from the vaccine might be worse than COVID, and sometimes they're correct. 

    If I were only considering my own personal health, I wouldn't have been vaccinated; at least not at this time.
