Yes. "etc.", being shorthand for "et cetera", can ordinarily be
considered a drop-in replacement for the phrase "and so forth"; a comma
*might* arguably not be strictly required with the longer form, but with
the short form I don't think there's any question.

Warning: Simply because I argue an issue does not mean I agree with any
side of it.

Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
