If a COVID-19 vaccine were available tomorrow, would you take it?

Here's a hypothetical scenario: If a vaccine were available tomorrow, would you take the shot? The upside would be immunity or at least increased resistance to the disease and being able to participate in society once again. However, there are segments of society that may be more risk-averse and would prefer to wait to see the effects of the vaccine. Then there are those who deny the efficacy of vaccines altogether—despite the overwhelming evidence about their safety and importance to public health. Would you take a vaccine?

Already, right-wing figures have positioned themselves against the vaccine.

Here is how they have been framing the issue:
