People in Japan and other countries are deeply envious. Japan starts its program in February. STARTS in February. I am sure it will all go in an orderly fashion, but the people of the US and UK are really lucky in this regard and should appreciate it.
 
2021-01-15 8:57:25 PM  
Every other country with vaccine shipments on the way had better keep a really close eye on those tracking numbers.

People in Japan are even luckier that they didn't have the kind of mismanaged response that killed hundreds of thousands. Maybe they'll get lucky in other ways, too.

So many people will be infected by then in the US that it won't matter much.  This needed to be done before the winter wave hit, not after.
 
2021-01-16 1:25:46 AM  
At that rate we'll get the whole country done in Feb. 2022. Woohoo?

Now that we have adults running the country, I think it's quite possible.
 
2021-01-16 1:28:08 AM  
Even if they dont hit that mark, I guarantee it will be closer than the current administration.
 
2021-01-16 1:30:33 AM  
Sounds like he's planning for the feds to run the entire effort from DC. Of course it'll go well, why wouldn't it?
 
2021-01-16 1:31:55 AM  
Not one vaccine manufacturer has committed to full production before March. They've all said by the end of Q2, which is June. Biden is desperate to sound like he's doing something, but unlike ... some... governors he won't be able to blame the feds for not meeting his own unrealistic boast. It might turn off voters in 2022 if they see it as Democrats lying to get elected (again), and then no more Senate majority, and goodbye House.

No need to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

The current plan of letting the states just kind of wing it has been a dismal failure.

Keizer_Ghidorah: Now that we have adults running the country, I think it's quite possible.


The factories only have the capacity to produce a certain amount per week, regardless of how much you shout at them. You can build more production lines but that takes time.

It will be easier to meet the goal if some of the other vaccine candidates are approved after successful trials, but that's not guaranteed to happen.
 
2021-01-16 1:36:15 AM  
So he makes the mark and it will be working off the back of trump's operation warp speed...which was set to deliver 200 million in that time frame.
he "only" gets out 90 million and we get to hear about the abysmal failure of Bidens vaccination program for the next four years.

Damnit, brain, stop being so pessimistic. It might be ok to hope again...just for a little while.

Nah, at 10.6M a month it's only out to late 2023.

/Seriously the goal is only 3x the current pace, that should be completely doable if the manufacturing capacity is online, and unlike the Trump administration I'm pretty sure Biden has intelligent people gathering facts and taking to responsible parties and doing analysis before making pronouncements.
 
2021-01-16 1:36:52 AM  
That's 1 million per day. Average of 20,000 shots per day per state, although larger states like CA would need 200,000/day.

30M turned into 12M. Trump maths. No wonder cops love him
 
2021-01-16 1:37:31 AM  
I can see it now. Shipments of vaccines being compromised as they get distributed across the country (refrigeration units being deliberatly shut off for those vaccines that require it) by trumpers, then them demanding Biden and his admin take full blame for these actions and be impeached immediatly so trumpy can be reinstated as President for Life, somehow..

Then, after the shipments get armed escorts to ensure being delivered safely, conspiracy theories about 5g mind control chips in the vaccine to flare up to new unimaginable heights. "Why do they need people with guns to force you to get vaxxed if it was gonna be good for you!!!" Calls for Bidens' impeachment and reinstatement of President for a thousand years, the Evil Shouty Yam of Chaos trumpy.

Then, their evil plan exposed, "patriots" (like the idiot terrorists that stormed the capitol on the 6th) will attempt to stage armed ambushes of said shipments, beutterly incompetent and mistly get themselves killed (with quite a few self-inflicted ballistic castration wounds) but a few feds get taken down as well. Right-wing media goes even more insane about the fed government denying good 2nd amendment patriots their rights by not just standing there and being killed with a "Thank you sir may i have another" on their lips, in clear violation of the Coocooland constitution. Calls for Bidens' impeachment and execution and installing trumpy as god emperor for all eternity and dissolving of other 2 branches of government to "save the constitution".

Then it'll start to get really stupid.

As far as I'm concerned the two mRNA vaccines are equivalent. I'd take either one if it was offered to me.

The current plan of letting the states just kind of wing it has been a dismal failure.


At least with 50 independent laboratories running trials, a few of them will likely find an approach that works. For example, Andrew Cuomo threatening massive fines if anybody innoculates an unqualified person. You never know, threatening to bring down the wrath of the state just might be the magic technique that makes it all fall into place.

I'm scheduled to get my vaccine on Monday. I didn't ask which vaccine it is. I don't give a fark. I've seen way too many farking tragedies during this pandemic. All I needed to hear was the local allergists and immunologists say that the vaccine is both safe and effective. That was it. I'm getting stuck in the arm on Monday. I'll get the second dose 6 weeks later.
 
2021-01-16 1:43:33 AM  
There are viable vaccines. Biden isn't making states fight over vaccines based on which ones voted for him. Also, people are using the terms "vaccine" and "cure" interchangeably which is disturbing in and of itself.

100 million sounds a lot like how many people the GOP is willing to kill to keep power.  More, actually.

I just made a appointment for March fifth. Yay me ! There's not too many vaccine distribution centers on Long Island but it looks like you can book a appointment easier late at night when there aren't a lot of folks filling up the appointments.
As far as I know there's just one place in Suffolk county and one in Nassau. Between the two counties approximately three million people.

Actually Cuomo did sign an executive order specifying a $1M fine for any provider found to be administering the vaccine fraudulently. That was in response to 1 NY clinic chain offering it first come first served to the general public while they were in phase 1a (healthcare workers and nursing home residents)

Which, the Cuomo story? It's 100% true. In fact, after Cuomo made the threat, it came out that hospitals were tossing out  vaccine that was close to expiring rather than risk getting fined for injecting ineligible people.

The german vaccine, but that's not as readily accessible due to its special storage requirements.

Man, I wanted to rail on you. Like, super bad. Like, James Brown Super Bad. But, dang it if you aren't right on the mark. Cuomo's putting the hammer down on vaccines...that are thrown out instead of being used. Nothing about "unqualified persons." How dare you make me research things instead of relying on strangers on the internet? The. Gall.

One they start getting past the olds and the healthcare workers, ever day will be incrementally safer to be among people. However, expect herd immunity percentages about a year from now. 2021 is going to be more of the same life restrictions pretty much everywhere.
