"As the U.S. braces simultaneously for a presidential power handoff and distribution of coronavirus vaccines that are expected to be approved soon,..."

No they're not. Not until January 20.

That's how pretty Trump is.

Both he and his coven must be prosecuted for negligent homicide.

The farks just don't get it: Joe Biden is not "the public."
 
2020-11-23 6:46:33 PM  
These Farks should probably be made aware that they could be held liable for impeding the distribution of the vaccine. They should VERY CAREFULLY consider their actions, lest they get dragged down with The Siberian Candidate.

The article was from yesterday and the transition was finally signed off today. I hope this changes now.

If you're really debating whether to work to end the pandemic or fark around for political reasons, just farking kill yourself. Some things supersede petty bullshiat, asshole.

Trump will authorize rolling out the vaccine to the states that voted for him.  The rest of them will have to wait.

*That's* how petty Trump is.

"The Omega Directive" Damn that's a deep cut.

I just want the farking vaccine to be reasonably priced (if free is an option...), available to everyone (regardless of insurance), and safe. Not everything needs a farkin' special name. When the President takes a shiat he doesn't call it "Operation Super Bowl".  Now that I think about it, he probably does, and I need brain bleach.

He spent four years undoing Obama and now three months sabotaging Biden. If you can't do well make others do poorly so you don't look so bad in comparison

In Trumps last days his final declaration is to torpedo the incoming Biden presidency in all ways possible so that he can then biatch about it as a deposed wannabe dictator and pretend like he could have saved the world.

Trump in particular, and Republicans in general, have no Code of Honor, and, with the pandemic, America has been put through a Year of Hell; the Prime Directive now should be to ensure that they end up in The Cage

Joke's on him. Biden's team already hacked into Agent Orange's files on the virus response.

Turns out, "Ivanka69" isn't the most secure password for classified info.
 
2020-11-23 8:00:50 PM  
As predicted Trumps fragile ego and narcissism only got worse once in office.  Not content to simply lash out like he used to, now he's deliberately sabotaging a vaccine for the pandemic of our lifetime because people didn't vote for him.

STICKING IT TO THE LIBS

Since 1988, and doubly so since 2016, the absolute ONLY thing that matters and that has ever mattered.

Trump is a vindictive, petty asshole. He will gladly let hundreds of thousands die if he believes he is "stickin it" to Biden.

Us NY'ers tried to warn everybody way back in 2015 that Trump in the White House would be a really bad idea.

Correct.  Trump's two major accomplishments as president:

1] Stickin' it to the libs;
2] Looking out for the interests of rich white people, in particular those who make monetary contributions in his favor.

The entire presidency has been this shallow.

Just asking questions.

Imagine the most painful death possible. Multiply that by 100. That's what Trump deserves period he deserves such agony that nothing in the world will stop it and as prolonged as possible

"Negligent"?

We're long past negligent.

It is hard to argue that it's not intentional, that it hasn't been from Day One.  Hell, it's been hard to argue that they would have done anything differently if they were tryingt to _run_up_ the total.

Arrest, try, convict, hang.  All of them.  It won't bring back the 263,678 dead Americans SO FAR, but it might give the next t(R)aitor who might try it a moment's pause.

If Trumpers don't want the vaccine, would providing incentives (e.g. no vaccination, no health care job) be a violation of the Prime Directive?

Do NOT go there. Others, perhaps, in the private sector, but it only ends in tears when we have to use violence
against people working in or for a government. Please, please trust me on this. Or do the wrong thing and end up in some dark cell someplace, or in an unmarked grave.
But we can and should do better. We can be civilised . We must . Or we are no better than them .

>I just want the farking vaccine to be reasonably priced (if free is an option...), available to everyone (regardless of insurance), and safe.

Free.

I have it on good authority that the vaccine itself will be provided at no cost to you whether or not you have insurance. The US government has purchased millions of doses of the Pfizer & Moderna vaccines, maybe more, maybe others. CARES Act ensures you won't pay, even if you're uninsured.

So far, they are two-part vaccines, and the government is going to track the shiat out of you to ensure you do BOTH parts, AND you do them on the right schedule. They're not interchangeable. If your first injection is the Pfizer vaccine, your second injection cannot be the Moderna vaccine.

The plan is to administer the vaccines in phases, states are working this out. In general, first wave will be healthcare workers, first responders, teachers, residents of long-term care facilities. Second wave will be high-risk & essential service personnel. Third wave is the rest of us.

Due to the vaccine's unique storage constraints, the real limitation will be WHERE you can get the shots. Both Walgreens and CVS are increasing their capacity in this regard.  It's going to be hard to get this stuff out to the countryside.

This. The administration deliberately let COVID run unchecked because they were told it would kill more people in Democratic demographics than Republican voters.

Trump told his cult that it was a hoax while privately admitting he knew damn well that COVID was a real threat. He told his cult that government precautions were 'tyranny'. He stole PPE from states that desperately needed it. He pushed farking snake oil for several crucial months.

This was Trump's attempt at his very own Holodomor; committing indiscriminate genocide by deliberately exacerbating a crisis (a famine in the original example, COVID in this one)..At the very least, he and his cronies should spend the rest of their lives in prison, while their business 'empires' are torn to shreds.

the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are the Betamax of biotech.
they are somewhat better than competition but will not get much share of the market.
they are too difficult to store, require man power for handling, shipping and injecting that do not exist.

if I had money I would short their stocks...

my bet is on a modified live (attenuated strain that can barely replicate in human cells) or some sub-unit inactivated vaccine.

now, I have some Nokia and pets.com stocks and a bridge to unload... any interest?

What's confidential about a public health vaccination program?

Probably nothing if they aren't lying about stuff.  If they are then the truth is treated like a secret

The Oxford vaccine is super stable and uses existing tech. It only needs refrigeration. It is a adenovirus modified to contain the code for the spike protein. And thanks to a mistake during the trial, a half dose followed by a full dose seems to be 90%+ effective. Two full doses only gave 62% effectiveness.

No way that's his password. "69" implies giving back.
