Genuinely curious to see who gets on the list of "Frontline" Americans. How it's compiled. Do doctors have to self-isolate for 2 weeks after injection, for example? The old? (imagine complications more likely with elderly). Wal-Mart employees? Bus drivers?

Biden said upwards of an additional 250,000 dead by January. Basically 50,000 a week then? Total death count for Vietnam was about 58,000. This is like 5 Vietnams in a month, quoted the party of science, which we all believe in.

Frankly, with that kind of mortality rate, it's amazing vaccine stations aren't going to be guarded with M-1 Abrams.

This vaccine doesn't even confer immunity, right? Just lessens the symptoms? Will we be required to self-isolate for Covid symptoms after the shot(s) until literally every person is inoculated?

Not out of the woods yet, not by a long shot.

My front line medical spouse (an MD) is not going to take it. Most of her peers and counterparts are not going to take it.

Apparently more are not going to either:

You should be concerned, if teh docs are balking at this crap, you should probably look at it again.

HCQ is a known cure. Simple, cheap, effective.

Sad they are trying to force vaccine that has at least a 2% negative to severe side effect for a bug with like .02% mortality rate. Clown world.

Best of luck to you all.

Virus to zero by May 1

Not only is gzsg wrong, gzsg has been impressively wrong.

While I am excited for vaccine rollout, there is no way we vaccinate 30 million people by 12/31/2020. I would bet my next paycheck on that.
His predictions are as solid as that Phins nutjob.

Party of science, remember. Party. Of. Science. P.O.S.

So I guess that's happening now, because science. Only mention it because it has obvious implications for vaccine distribution, vaccine security, businesses reopening, and airlines resuming normal operations.

I’d consider the man a more reliable source for prognosticating if experience had shown he reliably knew what state he was in, what office he was running for, and if he could reliably distinguish between his wife and his sister.

in fairness, not many politicians have a good grounding in math or the sciences, hence the attempt by a state legislature once to change the value of pi - just in the one state - by act of the state legislature.

You are completely full of BS.

My wife actually is a frontline medical worker (nurse and paramedic), and they are required to be vaccinated as terms of their employment. The stuff you post on here about your supposed MD spouse and “teh docs” is laughable. You are clearly just a liar.

HCQ is not a “known cure”. The only “clown” is deniers like you. Btw .02% of the US population is 7 million people. Let it spread and eventually everyone gets it. Mortality rate isnt the only issue. Just another flu eh? The let it spread till heard immunity crowd is out of their minds and takes their “science” from talking heads. We are basically trying the heard immunity thing right now and we had almost 3000 people die in a single day yesterday. Oh but wait it’s the 100s of doctors and medical examiners putting their licenses on the line to commit insurance fraud to get more money for the hospitals by inflating Covid deaths right? Covid case numbers are 6 times what they were in the Summer. Positivity rate is insanely high now. 10% more testing and 40-50% higher positivity rates. I’m surprised with someone with a spouse in the medical field being so obtuse. Anyway I know I’m just yelling into the void.

All I know is that a President elect like Joseph Biden, who is on record as having claimed to have marched with Nelson Mandela (!)...and arrested!!! (Well, “detained” when asked to clarify), who is the leader of the POS (Party of Science (!)) Party, has told us to expect 50,000 deaths a week for the next 5 weeks because “You won’t listen”!!!!

Listen. Listen to the Leader of the POS. If you don’t follow the POS President elect, you’re complicit in the deaths of a quarter million fellow Americans in less than a month...more deadly than any US war. This man is the leader of the free world, and when your duly elected POS leader tells you something, you should listen.

And obey.

(I actually am a bit concerned about Covid spikes, but am unconvinced that the vaccine(s) will have their desired effects. Hence resume updating. Not optimistic about Major US carrier fortunes, including SWA for the 1st time)
