I mean...if everyone thought that way we would be in the same situation as last year for several years. In fact, if everyone thought that way there would pretty much no vaccine ever....so yeah, that is actually kind of an anti vax stance.
My girlfriend works closely with the Pfizer and Merck studies. She has been working with sites which test and research COVID vaccines since June. She has been hesitant to take the vaccine because of the way it was rushed through FDA and how there have been no studies of long-term effects.
She is also the most pro-science person I know and she gets her flu vaccine/shot every year.
It is fine to be cautious and wanting to wait as long as possible to get this vaccine and also not
Anti-Vax is an extreme and a label used for people who equate "vaccines as killing people". There is no need to label everyone who is cautious of the COVID vaccine as an anti-vaxer.
