DragonladyThe Johnson & Johnson vaccine looks very hopeful - one dose and simple refrigeration. The problem seems to be that Trump didn't buy anywhere near the amount of vaccine he claimed he had, and now you're running out. The J&J vaccine is still a month or more away from approval and then there's distribution.Joe doesn't seem to be aware that Johnson & Johnson has a new vaccine in Phase-3 trials that will apply for Emergency Use in February, and that vaccine will be a 1-dose vaccine.
This should allow the first two vaccines to provide 2nd doses to those who need them, while still keeping people getting their 1st dose at about 1m a day of the JNJ vaccine. i.e. the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will concentrate primarily on 2nd doses.
I have not yet seen projections from the Biden admin on how they intend to manage the various vaccines and the 1st and 2nd doses.
Biden said he has a goal of 100m doses in 100 days. That makes no sense considering what's in the vaccine pipeline.
That makes no sense considering the new JNJ vaccine preparing to be distributed within Joe's 100 days. So why isn't Biden projecting when the JNJ vaccine will be distributed? Britain has 3 vaccines now, the one that the US doesn't have is Novavax. Is Novavax being planned for distribution in the US or not?
I want to see another daily update from Drs Birx and Fauci along with the CDC director showing the infection rate, and the distribution plan and progress for vaccine distribution. Joe's goal of 100m doses in 100 days is just silly.
Biden doesn't know when the J&J vaccine will be approved for release. Dr. Faucci said a couple of weeks, on Rachael Maddow the other night. I think Biden is still trying to get sorted on where things are at. It seems that the transition team was kept from finding out just what a mess to distribution was in. I think they came in with a plan and expectations, and are now in the process of making adjustments based on the reality of the situation.
100 million doses in 100 days really isn't close to enough. Even 100 million Americans vaccinated in 100 days still means that it will take a year or more to vaccinate everyone.
USA: 21 MILLION doses administered.
KKKanada: 2.1 million administered.
That means the USA is 10 Times better than KKKanada.
