100M doses in 100 days.
« on: January 21, 2021, 07:41:41 AM »
100 Days is May 1st.

100M doses is 50M people.

Less than 1/4th of the adult population.

Oh, somehow we will have doses available in pharmacies for people to just get like the flu vaccine by February/March.  Not 2022, February/March this year.

40% want to wait an see.  That still leaves 120M.  240M doses.

Better that the previous, but still woefully short of what is needed.

...and that assumes they can deliver that amount and in a timely basis..which they can't and they won't...nothing really changes, there is no magic wand.

The math is tricky here as there was chatter from the incoming administration about 1 jab of the present vaccines resulting in less than 50% resistance but also the Johnson and Johnson single shot vaccine should be approved in the next 30 days which could improve the numbers.  Then you've got to overcome state governance issues. California's governor has shown he can't work his way out of a paper bag compared to the 49 other state governors. If there is a one size fits all Federal rule, who's to say it's going to work everywhere, or end up being run like a supersized DMV?

Any boost in vaccination rates is welcome, but when the government says "100m in 100 days", given past performance of these kinds of claims, it's simply not going to be the case.

I've heard people will wait at the larger vaccination sites for cancellations/no-shows and take that persons place. Anyone tried that yet?
