Yeah, the normalcy bias is huge...American decline and whatnot.

BUT, I'm really not seeing how normalcy bias and ignoring safety precautions makes covid drag on longer. If anything, it would speed things up. I mean, if everyone just went out and had big covid orgies, sure it would cause a lot of death and overwhelm our healthcare system, but it would be "over" faster, as we'd reach herd immunity faster than taking precautions and flattening the curve. Flattening the curve makes it last longer.

In any event, it's looking like vaccines will put an end to the pandemic in 2021, regardless of what people do.

You assume it’s a one and done style virus

Evidence suggests otherwise

EDIT: $20 to barf we’re dealing with this in 2022 and not a little bit.

Pretty much. I think there's a very good chance the pandemic will be over by the start of 2022...about a year from now. Covid will still be with us, but it will cease to be a pandemic. At least in first world countries.

Not really sure what you're suggesting. Are you saying this virus is mutating like the flu? In any event, even if this thing will be prolonged into 2022 or whatnot, it won't be due to people ignoring safety protocols. Doing so leads to negative effects, but prolonging the pandemic isn't one of them.

I’m saying people won’t flock to get the 2 shot vaccine

We’re gonna hump a long this
As long as possible

Edit: especially as the CDC announced one should expect significant side effects from the 1st injection

My response would be that IF those vaccines are as safe and effect as they claim, and IF the vaccine is free to Americans as stated, and ONCE there is sufficient time for roll out where anyone who wants it can get it, at that point we're done, IMO. No more quarantining. No more shutdowns. Life back to normal. Oh, and at least in Cali, kids need vaccines to get into school absent a medical need. So make them get the vaccine or do home schooling.

Once an effective vaccine is free (or cheap) and available to all, my sympathy for those who refuse it goes way down.
