Here is an update on J&J. We need a few more manufacturers to be successful/approved.

Johnson & Johnson confident of March rollout for its COVID-19 vaccine, still aims for 1 billion doses in 2021
- https://www.theglobeandmail.com/business/international-business/us-business/article-johnson-johnson-confident-of-march-rollout-for-its-covid-19-vaccine/

Johnson & Johnson is on track to roll out its single-shot coronavirus vaccine in March, and plans to have clear data on how effective it is by the end of this month or early February, the U.S. healthcare company’s chief science officer said.

Dr. Paul Stoffels in an interview on Tuesday also said J&J expects to meet its stated target of delivering 1 billion doses of its vaccine by the end of this year as the company ramps up production.

The New York Times reported earlier on Wednesday that J&J was experiencing manufacturing delays that would reduce the number of doses initially available. Stoffels declined to say how many doses would be ready to go into people’s arms in March, presuming it receives emergency authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

“We are aiming for 1 billion doses in 2021. If it is a single dose, that means 1 billion people. But it will be in a ramp-up throughout the year,” Stoffels said.

Who would have thought? Perhaps conspiracy theorists? Despite repeated cries from Fuuci about the worst being ahead of us....Cuomo is now looking to open NYC...does anyone know what changed in the past couple months?

In related news, Chicago has also decided to suddenly re-open schools. Bizarre.

I think its 100% a coincidence that Cuomo wants to open up now a week before Biden is inaugurated. 6 weeks ago there were signs flashing all over the I-90 to be smart and not get together with family because of an apocalypse that would ensue. 6 weeks later......Time to open up.  Makes perfect sense if you think about it really, really, really hard lol.

 My guess is that Biden does not want to be accused of supporting lockdowns so is telling his Democrat governors to ease up.

The reality is that they need to kickstart the rebound so Biden can not only get credit for curing covid and cancer, but also saving the economy. Especially those of deep blue states. Notice how the news outlets are already declaring it "Biden's $2,000 stimulus checks"? Odd, because unless I am mistaken, one guy called for $2,000 checks, and it wasnt Joe, it wasnt Nancy, and it definitely wasnt Mitch.

 Yup too busy putting as much pork to dilute Trump's deal as possible so that he could claim is Covid relief deal was the one that made the difference.

It's amazing how quickly things change with covid.  The state that was ridiculed in this forum 6 weeks ago, South Dakota, has already vaccinated nearly 6 percent of its population.  If you believe that the over-65 year-old sub-group is the principal threat to the integrity of health service delivery, South Dakota is roughly one-third of the way to getting that high risk group vaccinated and have a real prospect of easing pressure on their hospitals.  Other states are very much lagging behind.  If you would have asked me in November which states would be leading in the vaccination process and which would be lagging, I don't think that I would have guessed that the Dakotas would be among the best.

Let's forget about sunk costs (argumentative and otherwise?). How can we learn from the Dakotas? It seems they are focusing on healthcare workers first, with a slight adaptation from the 'national' guidelines. One could argue for or against that modification but it appears that frontline workers have been going through a rough (mostly bipartisan) patch (especially in the Dakotas). i see that the protocol in North Dakota includes to vaccinate people who, themselves, vaccinate others (again another area to argue).
i assume you are from Ontario. As you know the neighboring other-solitude province has been reporting terribly high numbers (cases, hospital capacity, deaths etc). Well, despite this previously sunken past, it looks like the vaccine rollout is evolving relatively well:
https://covid19tracker.ca/vaccinationtracker.html
Word has it (as of 2 days ago) that, in my province, 50% of elderly people living in the most at-risk homes (the "CHSLDs") have received their first doses as well as 25% of relevant frontline healthcare personnel. (irrelevant addition: i'm periodically giving a lending hand to push the plunger but will wait my turn according to national guidelines)

 Yeah it seems pretty obvious you do the healthcare workers first, then the people in managed care facilities (you can just roll up with a ton of vaccines and knock them all out in a day) and then move on to outreach to knock off the age demographics. If you do it by age then you avoid most of the prioritization issues and you can make it first come first served.
