(CNN)   Research on other vaccines has shown that they are less effective on obese people. Which means that even if an effective Covid-19 vaccine IS developed, Americans may still be screwed, blued and deep-fried bar-b-que'd   (cnn.com) divider line

So the fark what.  Take the vaccine.  Get two since you're so damn fat.  Donnie will need like 5 vaccines.

I read a medical journal article about how hospitals and clinics need to be using much longer needles to do intra-muscular injections these days when they have obese patients. We're talking 6" long needles to get through the fat and into the muscle. Fat people have been receiving vaccines and other injections into the wrong part of their bodies for decades.

I hate needles, and the mere thought of a six-inch needle makes me super-happy the parts of me that are fat are not the parts where they'd give me a shot.

Other than that, dosage based on weight doesn't seem like it should be something the medical community is needing to discover again, in 2020...

So vaccines are fatphobic also.

If we are going to tax cigarettes, booze, sugar, and a bunch of other sins, maybe we can follow Japan's lead and tax fat people?

We could pay off the national debt in 5 years.

And they probably need to adjust the dose based on body weight.

Sure, and let's get some legislation in there to do something about the inequities of health outcomes on those just for "livin' large".   Maybe the obese can take a path like BLM and walk in protest night after night until the situation is rectified?

There's just more to vaccinate!

Not upset. I like to argue and that's one of my favorites.

Check out the fatlogic subreddit. You will find a few references to complaints about this problem. Apparently scientists are fatphobic and are deliberately engineering a vaccine that is less effective for fat people.
