Bullshiat-cutting list:
1. It's not yet available.
2. None of the vaccines about which you've heard are approved yet by the FDA, and probably won't be for at least another month. The Trump admin is, as we speak, trying to force the FDA to provide emergency use approval, circumventing even the bare-minimum practices put in place for such.
3. The figures in the article are based on Azar's bullshiat, not reality.
4. The CDC voting only applies when the vaccine's available.
5. We probably won't be getting it first.

What you're seeing here is, quite simply, the entire Trump administration's determination to be the folks who brought you the COVID-19 vaccine. They don't care if it's effective, or even safe, and sure as hell couldn't give a shiat about you. It's all about giving Trump's ego a big ol' handjob, and the GOP a "win" that they can claim out of all of this before Biden's inauguration.

Be wary.

DontMakeMeComeBackThere: meanwhile, all the maskholes will add screaming "There's a vaccine, if you're afraid of me, go get a shot!" and "I had my shot already!" (they didn't) to their stupid tirades.


There was a MAGA man-baby melting down when I was at the post office last week. He was told to wear a mask. He started with "masks don't work!!" and continued with, "how many times did you get tested this week. I got tested five times!!"

If the GOP is so eager to claim credit on a vaccine before January 20th, they sure as hell need to claim credit on all the American lives lost before January 20th.


The GOP admit to contributing to the death toll in the US?

Imagine a disgraced, former president seeking safety in another country, and all he has is a couple of hundred million vials of some room temperature stable vaccine with some semblance of effective power.

We have deals with Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZenica, and Novovax, if & when they produce an FDA-approved vaccine. Problem is, none of them have done so yet - Trump's trying to pressure the FDA into giving the first two emergency use auth because they're the front-runners in their clinical trials - and the Trump administration is desperate to do so before Biden's inauguration.

Even if you have to die, Trump wants a win. I'd laugh my ass off if it wasn't terrifying.

Except none of the vaccines are room temperature stable.

The Russian one needs a fridge. The American ones need Martian pole temperature cold (-70)

ZOMG! 200 year old technology is needed: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dry_ic​e
🥱🥱

LOL, you.

Dry ice is *constantly* needed - it's not hard to have dry ice in your warehouse in Michigan or Belgium (where Pfizer has it) or even to have some for the flight from ORD to wherever...

The hard part is having enough and maintaining the temperature for an extended period of time as you ship from Chicago to Timbuktu and god forbid there is a storm that makes the dirt road impassable. What are you going to do? Airlift ever single vaccine with helicopters to everyone?

There's a reason why many experts have said that much of the developing world outside of capital cities is likely going to have to wait for a different vaccine besides the American ones.

Have a nice day!

For the whole world? All 6 Billion people that live outside of USA, Canada, Western Europe, Russia and achina.

Do you realize how much money that will cost? Who can afford it? Surely not the countries who need it.

Again, they'll get a vaccine to a village in Laos or PNG or Mali - but it won't be the Pfizer one.

Okay, I get your point. We will neglect the poorer parts of the world initially. But ultimately they are probably doing a lot better with this as there is not as much movement among the people. You'd be surprised how long dry ice packed in styrofoam will last though. 3 days or so with basic refrigeration.


I will hold out hope that you are also correct.


My big concern is that I wonder how the fact that dry ice is -78 versus Pfizer recommending -70 degrees and how important that 8 degree difference is.

If -78 is as good as -70 then you may be right. However, if you need -70 +/- a degree (or whatever), then you need temperature management and now the cost skyrockets.

There are others of your ideological ilk who want to force inoculation on everyone. Which is it to be, deny the deplorables, or vaccinate them involuntarily by pointing a rifle at their head?

Not an expert, but my vote would be
-all medical workers
-cops
-essential workers that deal with the general public
-elderly and at risk people outside those categories
-the rest of the essential workers
-the general population

I could flip the essential workers that deal with the general public and the elderly/at risk population, but I just think it makes more sense to vaccinate the gas station clerk or grocery store worker that comes into contact with 500 strangers a day first.  We can limit visits at nursing homes for a few more months.

You slow a disease by hitting the people that are most likely to spread it.
