My husband and I spoke extensively about the disease and the vaccine. My incredibly healthy young nephew with Zero risk factors or potential exposure was infected in March. He is a long hauler who has recently been diagnosed with pericarditis as a result of COVID.
We decided early on that if either of us became ill, we would not go to the hospital. Neither of us wants to die without the other, to be separated when we need each other the most. We married later in life and having waited a lifetime to find each other, we are not going to be apart when either or both of us leave.
As to the vaccine, we will take it as early as we can. We are not priority; we are not healthcare or essential workers, and we arenít the FUCKING WHITE HOUSE STAFF who are getting it before anyone. At such time as the German government and/or the South Korean government - whose testing protocols are the most free of influence - approve a vaccine, we get that vaccine.

The officials said some White House staffers are expected to be given the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine this week.
But on Sunday, President Donald Trump said early vaccinations would only be offered in specific cases.
............Who will get the first vaccines in the White House?
Some of the first vaccines will be reserved for those who work in close proximity to Mr Trump, officials said told several US media outlets.
But eventually the vaccines will be offered to officials across all three branches of government, including the White House, Congress and the Supreme Court.
One unnamed official told Reuters news agency the vaccinations will ensure the government can "continue essential operations, without interruption".

The vaccination plan, first reported by the New York Times, was confirmed by National Security Council (NSC) spokesman John Ullyot on Sunday.
One aim of the programme was to build public confidence in the vaccine, he said.
"The American people should have confidence that they are receiving the same safe and effective vaccine as senior officials of the United States government on the advice of public health professionals and national security leadership," Mr Ullyot said.

Later on Sunday, Mr Trump clarified in a tweet that "people working in the White House should receive the vaccine somewhat later in the programme, unless specifically necessary".
Mr Trump, who contracted coronavirus in November and recovered after treatment in hospital, added: "I am not scheduled to take the vaccine, but look forward to doing so at the appropriate time."
