Good progress with the vaccines ramping up + 3rd vaccine now. It won't ever be quick enough but May is better than July (and a heck of a lot better than developing countries). On the other hand, May probably means July before everyone gets their shots.

I like the emphasis on teachers for sure.

Quote:

President Biden said on Tuesday that the U.S. will produce enough vaccines for every adult in the U.S. by the end of May, while making a fresh push to vaccinate school staff over the next month.

"We're now on track to have enough vaccine supply for every adult in America by the end of May," Biden said, crediting his administration's efforts to boost production and moving up the timeline from the end of July, which is what the president was saying just a few weeks ago.

sterlingice 03-02-2021 09:42 PM

I don't quite get why he threw May out there - I don't see the logic there. Though I suppose it might be that we're going so fast that they figure by May, everyone who wants one will have one because 30% of people don't want one.

SI

molson 03-02-2021 09:50 PM

The U.S. will collectively have the supply by May, that seems pretty clear, but it will take a while longer to actually distribute it.

I'm still not expecting mine until June or July. We have a trip planned for June in Boston, my girlfriend's family is going to meet some of my family, and it'll the first time I'll have seen anyone I'm related to in about 2 years. There's a good chance I will be the only one of the 10 people involved not vaccinated yet. I'm still going though. That might be the last straw for my mental health if I had to sit that out. I'll keep masking up and keeping my distance. Though it would be pretty glorious if I could get a vaccine a few weeks earlier and find my way into a Red Sox game.

RainMaker 03-02-2021 10:35 PM

Vaccine distribution seems weird. Been trying to get my parents the shot for weeks with no luck. Then I read about how towns in other states are going door to door giving the shots.

The screeching on Next Door and Facebook last night and this morning is both amazing in its intensity and disheartening in its content. I guess you could say that for most interactions there. But, man, this one goes to 11.

There's a clear culture war divide (which makes it sound like there are two sides to be on reasonably), but even after pressing a number of folks, no one could tell me what will actually be open this weekend that wasn't open last weekend in this "reopening the economy". The excitement is clearly all about the oppression of face masks or something.

Lathum 03-03-2021 08:45 AM

My wife and I were discussing this last night and came to the conclusion this could very well hurt businesses. It forces them to chose a side. People who support stricter health measures aren't all of a sudden going to let their guard down, if fact I think they will get more vigilant, as the maniacs have now been let out of the asylum. On the flip side the anti maskers are going to flaunt it any way they can.

What this means is a business is going to lose a significant portion of their customer base regardless of which side they fall on. Still enforce masks, lose the anti maskers, open wide up, lose the support of the maskers. then there is the inevitable flood of fights breaking out we will see over this.

Lathum 03-03-2021 08:49 AM

Dola- also curious how the sports leagues in Texas handle this. Are we going to get 18k indoors at a Spurs game? What could possibly go wrong.

miami_fan 03-03-2021 09:17 AM

I may be switching to the "other side" re:the reopening of the states. Is it really that big of a deal? I feel like now we are in the place we anticipated being in last year around May/June.

I know this is not the case but in theory every one will have the vaccine by June. For most people, once they are vaccinated, everything begins to goes back to normal. I feel like that was what we all said earlier. I know that will be the case for me. Those that are not vaccinated will probably continue to adhere to the same protocols that they have until they do get vaccinated.

One way or another, we have to figure out the next stage of this. COVID probably isn't going to entirely disappear, and we have no idea how long immunity from the vaccines last. There's a good chance it will be an ongoing cat-and-mouse game indefinitely. I think things CAN be back to normal by summer, but that requires us to make that choice even though COVID still exists and little outbreaks will still happen. There will always be resistance to opening anything up, and, I understand how even regular people are just getting exhausted with that. "Just a few more months". We could easily still be saying that in a few more months, and in a few more months after that, based on what our threshold and COVID risk tolerance is.

I have nothing to add other than I went to the gas station to get a chicken biscuit this AM (surprisingly delicious) and had to wait about 5 minutes.

All employees were masked. Of the 50 or so people who came in while I waited, I was 1 of the 3 who wore masks. At church Sunday, about 1/3 of the 150ish people there were maskless.

The South just doesn't give a shit.

I think the key words are choice and normal. I acknowledge that I have the privilege to make many choices to avoid risky COVID behaviors that others may not have. I think that the lack of choice drives most of the hesitancy that I see now. I am sure the same can be said about opening up. As far as normal goes, I don't know how we can just erase everything we have learned in the last year to go back to normal the November 2019 edition. For example, I can't imagine sitting in a packed waiting room with a bunch of sick people unmasked when I could just as easily sit in the car and have them call me when it is time to go in.

Ksyrup 03-03-2021 01:49 PM

I am getting my first dose tomorrow and don't intend on changing a thing I'm doing. Still masking up, still not eating at restaurants, etc. It doesn't really change much in my mind. It's just added protection, but for how long no one can tell us and I don't even think they know whether a vaccinated person can be a "carrier." I believe all a vaccine does is stop you from getting it or from getting really sick; it doesn't necessarily mean you can't spread it. I think that's the case for all vaccines, right?

miami_fan 03-03-2021 02:08 PM

Since the vaccine was made available, I have been unable to get an appointment for either my mother or mother in law to get their first does through the state. Everything was booked up solid and/or no vaccines were available. Today the federal govt opened up one of the state's four federally funded vaccine sites. Of course, our governor did not initially want the sites calling them "FEMA camps" but that is enough on that.

Well I took my mother and mother in law down to the local FEMA camp manned by mostly Air Force personnel for what I can tell. We arrived at about 1:15pm with no appointment for either. I started my car at 1:52pm with both women receiving their 1st Pfizer doses including filling out the required paperwork on site and waiting for 20 minutes for any reactions to the injections. Both say they feel fine. I would say there were about 50-60 people in the waiting area and the end. I had a quick conversation with one of the NCOs that was there and she said that this was the smallest number of people that they had there to that point. Now I just need to get my wife hers and I will be a little bit more at ease.

When you talk about the costs associated with the pandemic, I am sensitive to that argument. Closing stores, schools, other restrictions, etc., all have a cost. Wearing an effing mask costs... what? Your manhood? It's so stupid.

The good news is that there is a lot of anecdotal evidence building up that the vaccines do prevent you from being a carrier. To my knowledge, no formal studies have come out (and I'm sure that we will hear when they do). But the general trend of what people are seeing is apparently very encouraging.

Wife was able to make an appointment for the first shot through Publix for Monday (one day before students come into the building in Dekalb County, GA - I know it takes two weeks for immunity benefits of any shots). She's very happy. Publix had a lot of slots this morning for next week or seems.

Edward64 03-05-2021 05:49 AM

I was able to make an appt for Wed for a shot at Publix.

Wife called and said she found out from a co-worker that Publix was taking appts and she was able to sign up (she cancelled the AL appt). She told me the site did not ask for any eligibility info (e.g. are you a healthcare provider, a teacher, over 65+ etc.), just basic demographic info.

So I went to the site and sure enough. I was able to sign up without lying (clean conscience). I went back to the site after, everything was booked up but it said GA was going to Phase 1b next week.

In earlier readings, I did not think I qualified for 1b (which I knew included teachers) and I was eligible in Phase 2. But in reading eligibility for GA 1b, it said something like parents of X, Y, Z and X = serious asthma children. My daughter had bad asthma and uses prescription albuterol & some sort of steroid so I figure that I'm qualified here.

The ethical dilemma is that my daughter is a college kids (so is she still a child?), asthma has gotten better but she does keep the albuterol handy for once-in-a-while incidents. I think arguably I qualify but am amazed they are willing to give shots to "parents of" but not the kids with the actual asthma. If they were, I would give my daughter my slot.

I think I'll take the shot but can't help but feel I gamed the system some. What do you guys think?

miami_fan 03-05-2021 07:20 AM

Given the corruption that I have seen with vaccine distribution so far, I can't really get too worked up about your situation Edward. It feels like one of those letter of the law vs spirit of the law situations. If they say you are eligible, then you are eligible. Take the vaccine.

Lathum 03-05-2021 07:32 AM

I wouldn't feel guilty at all, especially because you didn't lie and say you were a smoker or something. There are plenty of people who are eligible who are choosing not to get it. You also have to consider everyone vaccinated, regardless of health, age, etc....gets us closer to herd immunity.

Edward64 03-05-2021 08:07 AM

Thanks guys. I feel better.

(If there is anyone here that thinks this is wrong, interested in hearing your opinion)

BTW - I noticed in my confirmation printout that they scheduled my 2nd shot on April 7. That's a bonus and guess this is the Moderna or Pfizer and not the 1-shot J&J.

I somewhat see his argument but honestly think he is being stupid and short-sighted. I would not be happy if I lived in Detroit.

Quote:

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan declined an initial allocation of the newly authorized Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine this week even as nationwide demand continues to outpace available supply.

Duggan, a Democrat who has been mayor since 2014, said he turned down the shipment because the city is able to meet current demand with its supply of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines -- even as his administration expanded vaccine eligibility Thursday to residents ages 50 and older with chronic medical conditions.

"So, Johnson & Johnson is a very good vaccine. Moderna and Pfizer are the best. And I am going to do everything I can to make sure the residents of the City of Detroit get the best," Duggan said during a news conference Thursday.

Just remember, if you give away your slot, then some asshole like me could get the shot instead of you and no one wants that.

albionmoonlight 03-05-2021 08:19 AM

I've seen a lot of talk of J&J as a second-class vaccine.

I think that the public health folks really need to get ahead of this. We lose a LOT of effectiveness if folks stay unvaccinated so they can wait for the "best."

miami_fan 03-05-2021 03:42 PM

Uncle Sam (actually my local VA) just sent me a text saying they have appointments available next week for the vaccine. I have my appointment next week. So the feds say I am eligible, the state says nah.

Well, let's be honest here. J&J is second class in efficacy when compared to Moderna & Pfizer. It has the benefit of 1-shot and also something like 100% prevents death.

Regarding the preventing death, nothing is 100% so I think they are overplaying that. Also, as some here have commented, there are serious side effects for "some" (I don't think we know the %) that recover such as loss of taste. With this in mind, it makes sense that "all things held equal" that I would very much prefer higher efficacy.

But all things are not equal, so yeah, IMO J&J is second class but still pretty game good all things considered. So I wouldn't hesitate to get it. I assume I can pay for Moderna & Pfizer out of pocket 6 months down the road or something.

I assume you signed-up with the VA to get a place in line? or did they just text you out of the blue?

Brought up the question about vaccination for military. It does seem military are Phase 1a (or their own special phase). Below article below is as of Feb 2. Total US active and reserves are < 2.5M so the 800K and % of does far exceeds non-military. Makes sense to me especially if you are cooped up in the Pentagon, or in a ship/sub, or in a foreign country.

This is why so few troops have gotten the COVID-19 vaccine
Quote:

According to the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tallies, the Defense Department has distributed more than 800,000 doses of the novel coronavirus vaccine, but has only put about 60 percent of those “shots in arms,” as the tagline goes.

There are several reasons for this lag, Air Force Brig. Gen. Paul Friedrichs told Military Times on Thursday, most of them similar to reports out of every corner of the country.

“What we’re seeing right now is similar to what we’re seeing across the entire United States, in that there’s ... a higher percentage of people who are older who are opting to have the vaccine, and it trends down with age,” Friedrichs said.

I get healthcare from the VA so they is why they texted me.

The military does have their own categories with the military. For example, people deploying overseas were eligible before those that were not and so on. This is why I was questioning the transitioning through the phases in the general public. Since it is still voluntary, if the 23 year old E-3 deploying overseas decided she did not want the vaccine, that is cool. A 45 year old E-8 in a different category might get the call to get that dose if they want it.

In earlier eligibility stuff I read, I did not see the "parents of" below qualification. But this is from the Publix site.

COVID Vaccine | Georgia Department of Public Health
Quote:

Beginning March 8, 2021, the following groups will also be eligible for COVID vaccine:

Educators and staff (Pre-K, K-12, DECAL licensed or exempt childcare programs)
Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their caregivers
Intellectual Disability is a disability characterized by significant limitations in both intellectual functioning and in adaptive behavior, which covers many everyday social and practical skills. This disability originates before the age of 22.

A developmental disability is a physical or mental impairment that happens before the age of 22, is expected to last a lifetime, and impacts at least three activities of daily living. Activities of daily living include self-care; receptive and expressive language; learning; mobility; self-direction; capacity for independent living; and economic self-sufficiency.

Parents of children with complex medical conditions who are at high risk for COVID complications
Malignancies requiring active treatment
Immunocompromised state (weakened immune system) including organ transplant (bone marrow or solid organ) within 2 years
Critical congenital heart disease
Asthma (moderate to severe)
Sickle cell disease
Diabetes
Obesity (BMI >95%)
Cystic fibrosis
Significant neurologic injury or condition (e.g. hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, traumatic brain injury, congenital anomaly, acute flaccid myelitis) with functional/developmental impairment (e.g. cerebral palsy, developmental disability, prematurity, mitochondrial disease)
Technology dependence (e.g. BiPAP, trach)

Since we have been working from home, my company turned our office into a clinic and vaccinated over 5,000 people yesterday.

molson 03-06-2021 09:51 PM

The U.S. is starting to kick some serious ass on vaccinations. 2.9 million today. That pace is enough to give doses to 70% of the U.S. adult population in under 50 days. (that's if we were starting from scratch - but of course we've already given 88 million dosages.)

My state, which has not been great at dealing with COVID, but is picking up in vaccinations, had 104 new COVID cases today - our peak was 2,298 in a day on December 9. Suck it COVID!

Good news on the effectiveness of just 1 (of 2) shot I guess. I don't have great perspective but the "real world study" of 57%-60% is still pretty good.

Single dose of AstraZeneca or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine cuts hospitalization risk by more than 80%, study shows - MarketWatch
Quote:

A single dose of either the AstraZeneca–Oxford vaccine or the Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 shot cuts the risk of hospital admission among older adults by more than 80% percent, Public Health England (PHE) said, citing a preprint study.

The real world study, which was published on Monday and hasn’t yet been peer-reviewed, showed that protection against any COVID-19 symptoms in those over 70 ranged between 57% and 61% for one dose of the Pfizer–BioNTech shot, and between 60% and 73% for the AstraZeneca–Oxford one four weeks after the first shot.

PHE said the data suggested the vaccine from U.S. drug company Pfizer PFE, +0.56% caused an 83% reduction in COVID-19 deaths among the over-80s. There were no equivalent data for the vaccine from Anglo-Swedish drug company AstraZeneca AZN, +1.76%, which began to be administered at a later date.

I don't have them at my fingertips, but I remember seeing in a couple of places that one of the potential reasons J&J showed less effective could be because part of the clinical trial was while the variants were spreading and we have inconclusive data about how well Moderna/Pfizer do against the E484K variants. It was a theory, tho, not conclusive.

We do have strong evidence that all three are very good w/very low side effects

Wife (teacher) had her first shot today. It was Moderna, slight soreness but nothing else of note.

We celebrated with Red Robin burgers.
