Despite the promising news from Pfizer and Moderna, other efforts – which may be even more effective – continue around the world
Agree with this. Despite all the talk of whether it should be mandatory, it will be a long time until there is enough vaccine to give it to all the people who want it. Moderna has consistently revised their promised delivery downwards.I'm sure there won't be any forced vaccinations. Instead there will soon be a fight over who gets it and who doesn't and I have to say that at least concerning Germany I am surprised that there isn't a larger discussion about it.
They say people in the high risk group first - while saying that's about 40% of the population. So who of those gets it first? I don't see any discussion at all about it. Don't know if there are plans, somewhere, but since it could be happening in one month, I am surprised. Then people who are working in the health system (which I don't get, really, I would definitely vaccinate those first (those that want to, of course, but that should be the large, large majority). Just getting a vaccine for these people will take its time. Next are other system-relevant persons, especially policemen and teachers, I'd say.
When everyone who wants a dosis, has gotten it, the governments won't press for a mandatory vaccination, because, realistically, they are not interested in people's lifes, they are interested in being elected again and not have any uprisings. So when they can point to the possibility of getting vaccinated, they won't have a reason to enforce anything.
In the context of holding a leader criminally liable for every covid death in the USA, which is what the Fauci mask opinion/policy was getting at, I’ll say you are 100% correct: Education needs to improve - a lot.Well, extreme opinions seem to be the mainstream in the US these days. Everything is politicized. The media likes "clear" stories and soundbites, pitting opposing views, etc. That makes it rather difficult to relay a complex story or stories with caveats. For example, not many people seem to understand how science works. "Fauci once doubted face masks, now he's pro - that's not right!" Seems education needs to be improved - a lot.
This is what I believe. To add, I think it will likely be a couple years before everyone who want a vaccine is able to get one. Further, I think coverage percentage... at least in the US, will be multiples of what we see every year with flu shots.Agree with this. Despite all the talk of whether it should be mandatory, it will be a long time until there is enough vaccine to give it to all the people who want it.

So you blame - criminally - POTUS for not panicking the public? You are so far off the rails...
Are these lies?The U.S. President lying about the Covid-19 virus is not in dispute. The issue is if you think that the lying was ok or not.
The other option was to look at history. But the underlying theme is to lie as a natural reaction to everything..remember even needed a Sharpie to alter reality of a storm.We should have had POTUS scaring the sh** out of everybody. It would have been sooo much better.
Clearly he should give a presser and tell all Americans we are doomed, everyone will get C19 eventually and that we are all going to die someday.I mean what else would you do with a quarter million dead of your countrymen,cases skyrocketing and the public desperate for accurate information?
Presser saying doomed..nah just need to say I misspoke..there are not tests for everyone who wants one..Clearly he should give a presser and tell all Americans we are doomed, everyone will get C19 eventually and that we are all going to die someday.
Inspiring stuff right there. Is that the kind of truth you are looking for?
Likely be sooner than that once the j&j trial finishes in early 2021. It is single dose and would help immensely. Basically, the more pipelines, the quicker it will be.This is what I believe. To add, I think it will likely be a couple years before everyone who want a vaccine is able to get one. Further, I think coverage percentage... at least in the US, will be multiples of what we see every year with flu shots.
