NFT: covid vaccine

Hilary : 1/12/2021 2:26 pm
in NY the vaccine is being made available to people 65
ny.gov/vaccine
The spots are in high demand. We got 3/14 as first available for my wife.

I am in health care so I have had my 2 doses. I had no problems with shot.

Good luck to everyone on this site.

Maybe other MFGs will be allowed to produce the vaccines on license so more are produced.

That’s already being done.

Family is in healthcare administration and do not see this happening at all. It’s limited distribution sites. Most healthcare workers would be appalled at the thought of this given what they have went through.


It's a mess.

Check out this article...kind of interesting.

research labs support the best hospitals in this country
the research studies cannot be done from home
we would not have the vaccine without the research labs

The DOH website was a bit slow last night due to all the traffic. But it was a fairly easy process signing up. I’m surprised I got an appointment so soon.

If that’s a response to the article, I’m not sure it is one. Nobody here appreciates research labs more than me, I can guarantee you that. And nobody here knows or respects what they’ve done to advance the COVID response more than me. But, valuable research need not be rewarded by limited vaccine. There’s chaos because protocols and priorities are not being clearly defined or clearly followed.

Was told by someone I know who works in a capital district hospital that the vaccine was offered up to everyone who works there. She got hers, even though she has nothing to do with covid patients. I get that a hospital, overall, is a higher risk area than your average office setting, but it goes to show that 'front line' is a rather gray area. This sort of tale could be construed as jumping the line/cronyism depending on how it is spun.

Not sure which hospital you mean but the one across the street from me is a repository and is giving it out freely to employees from what I understand. This hospital has a med school and grad school component and a friend who is a professor in the grad school (teaches and does (non-COVID research) got vaccinated. Her lab is in a fairly distant wing from the hospital part.
I won't name it

because I don't know if the internal distribution is legit or unwarranted. But, I'm pretty sure we're talking the same place.

uconngiant : 1/12/2021 11:42 pm : link
is what happened in my hometown. The mayor who is 28 got the shot while we have people over 75 who still don't have it along with first responders.

I will wait my turn like most people should and pray my wife gets it sooner with her health issues.
65+ here, no surprise given my handle.  
Del Shofner : 1/12/2021 11:55 pm : link
But, pretty chaotic here in the state of NY. One of my kids made an appointment for me (and Mrs Shofner) for late February, but let's see if that happens. I have my doubts based on what I've seen so far.

I am affiliated with both hospital systems in the capital district
The medical school made the vaccine easily accessible to it's employees

the other system used a very tiered system of who could get the vaccine first and it has been much less effective in getting it's employees protected.
JJ data - which is a one shot more traditional vaccine  
bhill410 : 1/13/2021 7:06 am : link
Due out “very soon” according to CEO. Traditional vaccines are super easy to manufacture that said the supply chain is 1000x easier since it’s one shot and more standard temp range. Between JJ cutting trial short and the CEO seeming bullish at JP I would be cautiously optimistic they like what they are seeing. Cutting the trial short means they got to clinical significance fast enough, generally if it’s at all murky you keep it going, if it sucks you would have to announce in a 8k, so to me that means positive. JJ working say above 75% will change everything.
Got my 2nd Pzifer vaccine yesterday.

So sad to hear your loss, Pete. Saw well put together segment on PBS news last night on recurring long term pulmonary and/or vascular symptoms of young, healthy adults who have already recovered from Covid. Many very disturbing symptoms of vascular weakness and failure.

I work in an area where far too many people have swallowed the "Covid is fake news" horse pucky. In retail, have daily confrontations with non mask wearers...

bubba0825 : 1/16/2021 12:20 pm : link
At the Javits center, it’s pretty obvious that the issue is with supply. They could easily turn 1000 people over an hour. I know we all want to point the finger at whose fault this is that it’s taken time but there are only a handful of people in the world who know how to manufacture this new type of vaccine. It’s going to take a WWII type of effort from the govt to figure out who to assist these companies in manufacturing.

Didn’t you have to wait 15 minutes after the vaccine before leaving.

The way they are doing it in SC is a 15 minute wait after the shot to make sure there is no reaction and for those who have had allergic reactions in the past or are susceptible - a mandatory waiting time of 30 minutes afterwards.
