Have such 'Rona fatigue these days, that I might actually consider it. 

I hear you.

The more interesting question is: if you had the opportunity to receive right now one of the US or European vaccines that are undergoing Phase III testing either currently or soon, would you take it?

I wouldn't consider taking part in a Phase III trial, because they are placebo-controlled, so you might not actually get the vaccine, you might get salt water.

But if someone offered you the real McCoy, would you take it now?  

It seems to me that all of the preliminary trials have been going very well, so that would appear to indicate a fairly high degree of confidence that the vaccines will be both effective and safe.  The whole point of the Phase III trial is to confirm that.
