Yes but those morons who got the illness and survived do figure into the equation. That will help getting to 70% a lot quicker in this country.

Re: Itís the beginning of the end of COVID-19!!! Vaccines are here and Iím getting mine in a few days.

I’ve been told mine is 2 weeks away, so realistically I’ll be surprised to get it any earlier than 1/1/21.
It looks like most of these vaccines 2 doses. Pfizer has them 21 days apart, Moderna and AstraZeneca have theirs 28 days apart. Johnson & Johnson is the only one that doesn’t require a second shot. I wonder if that's factored in on the numbers? If they say 20 million vaccines, is that enough for 10 million people or do they count both doses as one unit?

Re: Itís the beginning of the end of COVID-19!!! Vaccines are here and Iím getting mine in a few days.

Who's going to enforce the "rules"? How do we know there won't be riots over which (non caregiver / first-responders) can call first dibs on the vaccine? Is there a truly co-ordinated effort ("triage" as it were) to enforce the vaccine "guidelines" 100%? Is skipping in line an arrestable offence? Fineable? Or just a really shitty thing to do, with no real repercussions, except being selfish and denying others who need it more the right to have it first? How do we know there won't be people who try to skip / pay their way out of / insist that *they* come first??

Me? I couldn't care less. Hell, I'm happy to be at the last of the pool, because I do intend to remain very cautious for the next 6 months to even full year. Until most, if not all the people who are going to vaccinate, DO actually vaccinate. Meaning receive both doses. I can wait, I've been waiting 9+ months already.

Just because it's available now, people are going to start going hogwild in abandoning the stay-at-home rules, go out with abandon doing all the things they "missed" because, well now we've got the vaccine, and BAM! we're "normal" again. I wonder just how prevalent that highly mistaken mentality is going to be.

I'm in no hurry to get it. I want to see what the side effects are before I receive it.

After six months of no side effects it will become, "I'll wait to see if any side effects after one year."

Meanwhile, the pandemic continues because everyone is waiting.

I have a family reunion next July (that was postponed from July 2020) so all I really hope for is that everyone gets vaccinated before then.

I'm probably way down the list but I'll definitely get it as soon as I'm able to. I just got my flu shot the other day and that was way later than I intended to.
So excited for the first folks to get it, and thank you, health care personnel, for all you have done and risked during this crazy and dangerous time.

I would definitely prefer a zombie apocalypse over more Trump cultists, though it's not all that easy to tell the difference. At least the zombies are actually looking for brains.

My wife is turning into one of those. Me, I'd like to see 3 months in the general population and then I'll be comfortable. I'll be comfortable by end of March and since my number won't be up to get it anyway it all works out for me.

I should be sooner rather than later. Education is fairly high on the list. Group 1B or 1D, from what I've seen. Since my department is essential on-campus professional staff, I expect it sometime in January. Can't freakin' wait.

I'm not really sure where I'll fall on the list. I technically work with first responders, but we would fall behind a few other groups. Plus, I'm able to work remotely in my position, so I know I wouldn't be a high priority even within my company. I'm happy to wait.

Which side effect are you hoping for? Length or girth? A bit of each would be great, but if I had to choose one, what a tough call. Iíll think on it and get back to you.

Hope I get a email from my local CVS when they received the vaccine.
