Even though 2021 started with a high dose of positive sentiment around the world, as people hoped for an end to the pandemic that has rocked the world for over a year now, many social media users are starting to have second thoughts regarding vaccines that have already been rolled out in recent weeks, especially those who watched Will Smith's 2007 I'm Legend.

According to the Sci-Fi film set in 2021, Will Smith and his dog are the only survivors from a zombie apocalypse that was caused by failed vaccinations. Online people drew comparisons between the film's events and the fact that 2021 has been strongly linked to COVID19 vaccines, many of which are using new biotechnologies.

Similar comparisons with movies and TV shows' predictions have been widely shared throughout 2020, as people thought the popular Simpsons show had already predicted most of the year's events, including the COVID19 outbreak.

Moreover, in March 2020, social media users noted that a Korean Drama produced by Netflix had predicted a viral outbreak of a Coronavirus, one that was more dangerous than the 2003 SARS.

While millions of people across the globe have already received vaccines meant to stop severe infections of the novel Coronavirus, a lot of people are still expressing uncertainty over whether or not they would like to take any of the vaccines.
