There are those that trust and believe in the science and feel like the vaccine is our only hope at getting through the current pandemic.

There are others that don’t necessarily distrust the science, but feel the vaccine has been rushed out, has not been tested properly and is not yet FDA approved.

Also, not to be left out are the fringe that feels as though the vaccine will somehow alter your DNA.

We want to hear from you. When the vaccine is made available to the general public, will you receive it? Why or why not?

We have created a short survey that can be found by going to The Valley Times-News on Facebook or by clicking here. We’d love to hear from you about the vaccine and plan to use the data in future articles as we work to answer questions from the community.
