  • I'm listening to a town hall at my hospital, where our chief of ID has been discussing the vaccines, their safety and importance.

    But what does he know. I should listen to Chuck. It's nothing.

      I’m sure Jeb has some analytics that are much more relevant.

          If I'm the last person in the country that the vaccine is offered to, I won't complain. I'll take it as soon as it's offered, but I don't fear the disease and I've managed to live without it this long, so a few more months are fine.

          My wife and I actually were talking about this last night after she read something about priorities for vaccination. Front line workers in hospitals, first responders, LTC, etc..., obviously have to be first.

          But then I think it gets interesting. The aged, those with underlying conditions, people in LTC facilities, are most at risk of death. They are, in my opinion, also the people least likely to be spreading this virus.

          If we go with vaccinating the vulnerable first, I think we will see a much slower decline in the spread than we would if we vaccinated everyone between 18 and 40 first. That's the group where most of the spread occurs, but as a group they have the least serious outcomes. But if we stop the spread, we also stop the deaths, including in the vulnerable population.

          So, it's a decision between stopping the spread (and resulting death) sooner, or protecting against death now and working on the spread last.

          If it were up to me, I'd vaccinate the vulnerable first (after the front line workers) and work on the spread in the younger generation last.
          the UK is prioritizing by those most vulnerable -- not those most likely to spread. They're vaccinating the 90-80 year olds first.

            they can be, but they don't want to do that. They want to spread out the available doses to get as many people their first dose as possible. Then more get manufactured, and show up a week to a few days before they are needed for the second dose.

                Yeah, I assume that's the way we'll do it to. Hard to argue with that position.

                But I think it would interesting to see a case study where one group vaccinated the vulnerable first and the other vaccinated the spreaders first.
                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                    no, I believe the US is putting non-covid healthcare workers and non-healthcare essential workers at a higher priority than the UK is. The UK is basically starting with old people, even ones not in nursing homes

                      Sorry, I meant the priority for non-healthcare workers.

                      Are they not getting healthcare workers vaccinated first? That's lunacy.

                        I'm sure those treating covid patients are high priority, but they started vaccinations of 80-90 year olds on day one of approval.

                        I think it's so out of control here, we need to be more worried about slowing the spread in the general population than they do at the moment.

                            Are the two doses the exact same thing? I didn't realize that.

                            Although, having gotten shots for rabies, I guess I should have figured that out. We had 6 shots the first time, and then two follow ups a few weeks later.

                            Ok- then the plan makes more sense.

                                Yeah, same thing per dose. The second is more of a booster.
