The governments need to just let us live!!
Not sure how much the government is leaning on big companies, but I went ahead and got my vaccine ahead of the FDA approval because I unfortunately still need to work and I'm 100% sure my company will be one of the ones requiring a vaccination. I still haven't gotten the 2nd dose, but the 1st one was amazingly benign considering how much flu vaccines screw me up(like having the actual flu + puking for a whole week). I don't even really recall if I had any negative effects whatsoever... although it's the 2nd one that's supposed to be a little rough. Kinda wish I had gotten one while J&J was still approved. That part is confusing because it's approved in the EU and in theory they are generally more strict in approving things. Maybe it's just because J&J offered them a deal and they were in a rock and a hard place with wanting to get everyone vaccinated or something.
