One of them, the wife of a friend, has been in ill health since getting the vaccine. The other was a healthy 25 year old (the child of a friend) and got flattened by covid symptoms for a week, but they've been fine since. Their sister had the J&J single dose vaccine and was fine. So I'm definitely pro-vaccine, I'd just be cautious with the Moderna one. Although as young, healthy, athletes NBA players should (in theory) be fine.You aren't allowed to talk about negative side affects of the vaccine. It's conspiracy stuff. Never mind the VAERS data.
All I know is that two iconic (admittedly older) athletes in Hagler and Aaron got the vaccine... so I can imagine there is a certain reluctance to trust the government over this stuff. Add the name Tuskegee and the word 'experimental', and I doubt they get a lot of the players to all jump in line to get a vaccine - unless they make it mandatory... and that presents its own set of problems.
I hope those you know that had negative side effects are doing well.
