Opponents of mandatory vaccinations have cited the emergency approval as grounds for not requiring inoculations, so full approval is expected to lead more businesses and institutions to require mandatory vaccinations.
Side effects are a big barrier for COVID-vaccine acceptance.
Novavax vaccine should be A1 news. The recent results confirm that it has roughly the same efficacy as the two authorized mRNA vaccines, with the added benefit of being based on an older, more familiar science.
The protein-subunit approach used by Novavax was first implemented for the hepatitis B vaccine, which has been used in the U.S. since 1986.
The pertussis vaccine, which is required for almost all children in U.S. public schools, is also made this way. Some of those people who have been wary of getting the mRNA vaccines may find Novavax more appealing.
The Novavax vaccine also has a substantially lower rate of side effects than the authorized mRNA vaccines.

I don't need it. There are many that don't need it. By now, probably over a third of the population doesn't need it. Anyone with antibodies does not need it.
As has already been mentioned, the harder they push the more they are mistrusted.

Thanks for posting that.
After reading that, I would be willing to take that vaccine as I have taken other vaccines based on the same technology in the past.
I am wondering how far it will get us telling our employers we are willing to take that one, and only that one and we will wait for it.
