The difference between a government mandated mask order and a government mandated vaccine is body autonomy.  The government can mandate that you wear something (public nudity is generally frowned upon) or participate in various safety measures (seat-belts).  But the government cannot force you to become an organ donor (some countries heavily incentivize this) or how your body will be disposed of.  Body autonomy is a pretty big deal, which is why when forced sterilization comes up people take it very seriously, and the UN classifies this as a type of genocide.  Another example would be prisoners can't be used to test medical treatments without their express consent, even when you're incarcerated you're given a certain amount of body autonomy and nearly every industrial nation takes that very seriously. 

I doubt that the government will ever force people to be vaccinated, even today we have measles or TB infections that spread, partly because there's a certain subset of people who refuse to get vaccinated and some people who cannot be vaccinated (specific medical reasons).  I suspect that the government will do what it did with the Polio vaccine, which is a propaganda campaign.  There's the famous campaign of Elvis Presley getting a polio vaccine helped push the vaccination rate up dramatically.  I suspect we'll see some celebrities getting vaccinated or major politicians getting vaccinated.
Honestly I'm more concerned that the vaccine(s) will be in very high demand and relatively short supply, we might end up with a lottery type system or have people pay large out of pocket expenses for vaccines.  The massive logistics of making the vaccine widely available in this country alone will be a tremendous undertaking.

The possible explanation of T cell response for some asymptomatic people from similar viruses in the past was an interesting idea but also, AGAIN it is being stated that the size of the virus load matters and wearing masks can make a big difference.

A week after Gov. Gavin Newsom of California announced that a panel of experts from his state would independently review any federally approved coronavirus vaccines before they were administered to residents, the governors of Washington, Oregon and Nevada announced they’d join California’s effort.

West coast united.

Also all democrat governors so that probably helped.

So you got

  1. Moderna/NIH (USA). Must be shipped at 2 C. Can be 1 dose (70%+ effective) but will probably be administered as 2 doses (90%+ effective). "Old-fashioned" adenovirus.
  2. AstraZeneca/Oxford (UK) - Must be shipped at -20 C. Requires 2 doses (90%+ effective). Fancy mRNA.
  3. Pfizer/BioNTech (Germany) - Must be shipped at -70 C. Requires 2 doses (90%+ effective). Fancy mRNA.

That is just typical isn't it. The German engineered solution is good but expensive, complicated and requires tight tolerances.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield said Tuesday that a COVID-19 vaccine would be released “by the end of the second week of December.”

Timeline seems to fit with most estimates I have seen from other sources.

Conclusion Greater proportion of vitamin D-deficient individuals with SARS-CoV-2 infection turned SARS-CoV-2 RNA negative with a significant decrease in fibrinogen on high-dose cholecalciferol supplementation.

It has already been pretty universally agreed upon in the health and fitness community that just about everyone should be supplementing vit D3 and this is just another reason. There have also been multiple articles already talking about certain common vitamin and mineral deficiencies causing additional issues.
