Even if two of the upcoming vaccines (names below) are slightly less effective, they are based on standard technology and “I trust the principles behind their development since they have a 60 year track record.”

The mRNA vaccines are troubling to me because we don’t know if any of us humans has the same RNA sequence that is used in the Pfizer and MODERNA vaccines.
Some of us may have that exact same sequence in our genome, and if it is a critical part of the transcription for a major biological pathway that could prove disastrous.
This whole mRNA method is “cute” but clearly has no track record for long-term safety. It is important to understand that most species share some DNA/RNA sequences from other species. Based on that, I have refused the offer made by my institution.
The upcoming J&J and AstraZeneca vaccines are based on standard technology and even if they are slightly less effective, I trust the principles behind their development since they have a 60 year track record.
Meanwhile, the standard MMR (Mumps-Measles-Rubella) vaccine used in early childhood vaccinations has shown some promise in ameliorating the COVID-19 disease process, at least in some studies that are currently being evaluated.
There is a correlation (thus not proof) that the higher one’s mumps antibodies are, the less severe the COVID-19 symptoms in those infected, and vice versa. Intriguing, but it is one plausible explanation for the low rate of COVID -19 infections in children (who mostly have been vaccinated with MMR). This suggests an alternative for adults who may be afraid to take the current offerings.
