Between Moderna and the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine I'm cautiously optimistic that we'll have something by early 2021.

I don’t have big doubts on the science. Tho vaccines don’t just get produced cause we hope or how hard people work.

Where i have my pessimism is the US government under Trump rolling out a vaccine plan successfully

The problems are significant - you need multiple doses, it doesn't appear that even with multiple doses it will be anywhere near fully effective, and you have to produce AND deliver those multi-doses.

Even if something is available in 2021, by the time they administer it to high-risk populations - elderly, healthcare workers and other essential workers, it will be months and months before the public will have access to it.

I'm not expecting the first round of vaccines to wipe COVID 19 from the face of the planet.

But if the first batches can make this out to actually be like the flu (like for reals, not a figment inside gZus's Ordinary Spring brain), then we can get back about our lives.

And maybe that's too optimistic for round one - but, well, we'll see.

The unique combination of this pandemic's severity and the level of medical and scientific advancement that we have reached makes precedence and projection fairly useless. I'm just going to wait and see what happens because, well, that's all I can do.

I think it's more about managing expectations.

It should be obvious to everyone that the first to be vaccinated have to be those in the highest-risk groups, including 65+, immuno-compromised individuals, those with serious co-morbidities and healthcare workers. After that you start going down the list of other essential workers, and then make your way to the general public.

My concern is that people will start losing their shit if/when a vaccine is out and they are realistically told that their turn will be in 4-5 months.

Which is to say nothing of the idiots who will refuse it altogether on the grounds of being terrified of Bill Gates.

20% say they will not take a Covid19 vaccine
30% are unsure.

Not really good numbers to build a herd

I want to get back to taking body shots off of drunk coeds in pacific beach. I stopped because i care about the well beings of others

For the greater good.

But at what cost. At what cost

Where are these numbers coming from? They sound extremely high.

I have seen a wide range of figures for what would constitute herd immunity in this case, some of which are far below the traditional 60% threshold.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0623111329.htm

However, even if it weren't enough for herd immunity, 43% of the population being immune would significantly slow spread by limiting available vectors. It's not an all or nothing issue. The difficulty is getting it to 150 million Americans efficiently.

Just quietly, don't think anyone wants to see you doing this, McBeal.

Why don’t they teach if you have sex in a dream (human or demon) that it creates a baby in real life ???

It’s like a really dumb attempt at Inception knockoff

If you don't count the cases then we don't have any cases. Duh.

I actually think they are low.

Influenza vaccine uptake is just under 50%. And nobody (at least I think nobody?) thinks that Bill Gates is microchipping us by way of flu vaccine, meaning that there is a whole new group of idiots who will decline.

But aren't all of these idiots already anti-vaxxers who wouldn't take the influenza vaccine. The Venn diagram here is a circle.

I guess there are those who continue to insist that covid is no different than the common flu. The only place I see that mentality is YouTube comments on sports videos, though. I can't imagine that is 20% or more of the population.
