AZ's approval (or not) was initially a political decision as much or more than a scientific one and with so much Pfizer around almost an afterthought now. The trials from Spain and the UK show that those with mixed adenovirus/mRNA doses may even have better protection than 2 mRNA's, but you do you Broadway...
Weird Bruce would let himself caught up in this nonsense.

Oh yeah? Well I got the AZ and I'm not letting Springsteen be one of the 3 people who has never been in my kitchen, so there.

We genXers in Canada were the majority of the AZ first doese in Canada. Now we are all getting Pfizer or Moderna second doses. We will be the overlords of the rest of you plaguerats

Could be just a restriction of the venue, and Bruce has nothing to do with that decision.

I think novavax is in the same boat for their trial participants

This has affect 45 ppl world wide. They couldn't help it, they were blinded by the light.

I am one of those X'rs good man, AZ/Pfizer here. Day 3 post Pfizer, and once again fully symptom free.

Other than wanting to do a relatively smaller venue to what he could fill in a heartbeat.

more pressing question, will Trumpsters hanging onto power by their finger nails okay the use of Russia's Sputnik vaccine or China's Sinovac?

\or how quick will that get approved?
\\yes I know Biden's Pres there

The ticket prices would be a lot higher, and you can't guarantee that this rule won't be picked up everywhere on Broadway.
 
2021-06-18 3:23:03 PM  
Because it causes lockjaw?

Pretty sure I saw a thread the other day that all Broadway theatres were going with this rule as they re-open. But he could have been doing shows in The Park, or at Radio City or anywhere else that might not be quite as officious.
Although I guess the rule nearly only applies to double dosed foreigners anyway.

Yes us Pfizer sneetches are the best!

Astrazenica ain't approved here.  How many people could possibly buy tickets that have been vaccinated that way?  Canada border is closed still.

With that said if we're going to head that direction for more and more things... We should allow vaccines approved elsewhere or it could turn into a mess.

jake3988: Astrazenica ain't approved here. How many people could possibly buy tickets that have been vaccinated that way?


I didn't know they'd approved any vaccines for tickets. I thought it was acceptable just to wipe them down with bleach and then boil them for an hour.

Well you can always go get a second dose pfizer shot.

I wonder if some people are crazy enough that they got like 2 pfizer and 2 moderna shots or something. Surely this happened a couple of times since theres basically zero follow up on anything.
 
2021-06-18 5:07:06 PM  
I have received the right vaccine but as much as love Bruce ticket prices beginning at $400 are a bit too much for me. Anyway, I imagine I could see quite a few up-and-coming NYC bands for $400.

Broadway theaters have no "house rules". Each production is a separate negotiations with the theater owners. (Which in this case is a 45 year old billionaire)  Because of his enormous fiat Springsteen is responsible for pretty much every decision. Certainly every one he wants to make.

The earlier Broadway run was at an even smaller theatre.

You could develop superpowers

I knew the vaccines could protect against a deadly virus, but I had no idea the AZ vaccine could also protect against bad pop music!
 
2021-06-18 9:12:37 PM  
More importantly, do I HAVE to go if I have moderna?

Because he sucks.

I suspect that this was a decision made on legal grounds by their insurer.

I got Moderna.  Still won't attend.

Glory days. Born in the USA

I got the first Pfizer a month ago and just became eligible for second dose. No idea what Right Nut is doing.
