The official added that he wanted to have the vaccine available by March or April, but that was much too soon, and he cannae change the laws of physics.

Well, since this is a guy working for Trump, the odds of him making this up is high.

So, we're gonna wait for any substantive dates until after January 20th, then?

NPR the other day was talking about all the people that wouldn't take a vaccine, for one reason or another.

I'll take it, but I won't push to be one of the first.  I was socially distant long before it was cool, get it to those poor overworked hospital workers first.

And speaking of nurses, here's how one of them has gone this year...

I will get it but I know there are people that need it more than me and I am sure I will be part of the 4th or 5th wave to get it.
 
2020-12-01 6:42:21 AM  
Well between all the people getting the vaccine by then, and all the people who are gonna catch the Rona this winter, and thus not need it, because of Republican bungling, he may be right.

Being first in line for one of these rushed COVID vaccines is like buying a PS5 on launch day. I'd rather not be a RRD guinea pig for the rest of y'all.

MegaLib: The vaccine needs to be mandatory or we will always be dealing with this.


Thought about that, but then I realized.

Do I really care? No.

Everyone that can be vaccinated and wants to? Get the vaccine.

Don't want to get the vaccine because you're a special kind of special? Die.

Can't get the vaccine because of medical reasons? A wrench is <$10.  Help take care of the Specials.

MegaLib: The vaccine needs to be mandatory or we will always be dealing with this.


Eventually it should be, but I do think we should get all the willing people first, since there will only be a limited number of doses available each month.

We also need a priority system that establishes that people get it based on their vulnerability, and the likelihood they have of passing it.  Front line medical workers get it first, but we need a point system.  High risk factors, the amount of time you spend exposed to the public, and the amount of time you spend living or being with people who are high risk should be factored in.

Fauci said people who have had covid should still get the vaccine.
 
2020-12-01 7:05:59 AM  
Mrs Alt is a nurse, her hospital told them they will start the first round of vaccine by Christmas. Pharma is saying they can have 20 million doses for Dec, 25 million for Jan, there are 20 million Healthcare workers in the US. So if they start there, the general public, most likely people over 65 are next. I am hoping it is available to the general public low risk groups by April.

vudukungfu: How many sterile syringes do we have?


A lot, for now.  Most immunizations are in prefilled syringes, so we just put on the right size needle before administering (depending on how thin/fat the patient is).  Where I work we have MANY, many syringes with needles, which we use for reconstituted immunizations (Shingrix, varicella, MMR) and will likely use for Covid since it's a live vaccine.  It'll most likely be a powder we store in the fridge/freezer/dry ice, plus a diluent that we mix just before administering.

Still, I hope factories are ramping up production of those single dose vials and syringe/needle combos because they will go quickly.
 
2020-12-01 7:23:59 AM  
I'm curious if they're going to run an antibody test before allowing you to get the vaccine. If you had it and we presume some degree of resistance from reinfection, we shouldn't be using doses on you.
 
2020-12-01 7:29:22 AM  
I'm ready to steal the vaccine I'm so desperate. My coworkers in our crowded office are horrible with masks, we had five clerks all test positive last week on the same day, and December is hell at the post office and we're all spending more time in the office now. Knowing my luck I'll get sick right before it's vaccine time. Stay safe everyone, we're getting close to being in a much better spot with this, but this is also the most dangerous time with the spread and winter time.

2020-12-01 7:49:02 AM  
Mmmhmm. And 100% of people who wanted a test could get a test. I'll believe it when I see it.

I trust NOTHING coming out of this administration and its "taskforce," other than its ability to lie to us and f*ck things up.
 
2020-12-01 7:49:57 AM

There still is no vaccine. I know this all sounds very good but ....

1. Delay the transition.

2. Announce an optimistic goal before vaccines are even approved, with no plan in place and no responsibility after 20 Jan.

3. "But we had a foolproof plan to distribute a vaccine to everyone by June and Biden farked it all up!" OR "Biden only followed the Trump plan to distribute the Trump vaccine.  Only reason it was successful"

Profit

I believe it.

Getting the public vaccinated is an immediate and huge boost to the economy and everyone's safety & prosperity & peace of mind.

It is literally everybody's #1 priority right now. I would personally volunteer to suffer a serious injury if it accelerated vaccine rollout by one day and ended this bullshiat. I imagine most people who care about this country would too.

sad truth. millions upon millions of illegal immigrants are not going to come forth for medication. they are already in the high risk group because they do not wear PPE or practice safe standards. there are several groups this same way, and we're all pretending the 'rona is coming after them in force because racism. daily no shirts b-ball games and sharing blunts puts you behind the eight ball but take no responsibility, it's not your fault.
