Well, we do need to take care of our immune systems for them to take care of us. Proper nutrition and getting plenty of reset are important for your immune function. It has also been shown that high levels of stress hormones over a long time can reduce the effectiveness of the immune system to protect you, so having a positive attitude can improve your ability to ward off infections.

You don't want the human to stress out excessively, but that's because it takes away resources from the immune system. You do want the immune system itself to work hard. And in the case of a vaccination, it should believe that it's the real thing. See Viral Vector Immunity Barmar (talk) 05:17, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

I would strongly prefer to wait 5-to-10 (to 30) years for long term studies before trying any new types of vaccine or medicine, but apparently my friends & family still want to see me in person before then. Oh well; at least I can keep wearing the mask at the grocery? ProphetZarquon (talk) 05:31, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
