Lol. J+J isnt even that good, and is still better than seb's shitty astrazenca vax.

Meanwhile, our pfizer vax is fucking elite:

"AZ Efficacy: 76% globally"

Suspect. AZ may have fudged numbers, is under investigation, and has not been approved in the US for this reason.

Also, this neglects the blood clots and the near 0% efficacy against SA strain. J+J pulls a lowly but better 63% there.

Keep in mind this is the worst and last of the 3 american vaxs. Our worst beats your best.

J&J is one shot, easier logistically since it doesn't require extreme sub-zero temps, has milder side effects, and is effective against UK/SA strains.

% isn't a huge deal, getting a cough is part of life, it keeps you out of the hospital and the morgue, which is the point.
Sam Adams

Thu Apr 01 15:50:57
A bigger efficacy number probably reduces the spread of the virus a bit better, even if both keep you out of the hospital.

The improved logistics does help for sure, especially if you live in a third world location, like the UK or alabama.

The issue with the efficacy % though is they are real world tests which if it was tested during a spike or a slump in cases drastically changes the outcomes.

Atleast 1 dose

Fully vaxed

US 29.8

NW 12.7

Norway has given out 970k shots.

US has given out 153 million.

So N has upped its game by rate, but they still cant catch up to the US.

A very telling # for me was 46% of US has already had 1 shot.

So within a few weeks we should have over 50% fully vaxed as a large chunk of people get their 2nd dose plus 2.5-3 million doses daily (some overlap though)

It's not 46%. You are double-counting people who got their first shot and people who got their second.

Currently 30% of the US has had one shot, while 16% have been fully vaccinated. 30 + 16 = 46.

A member of the Republican Party, he was elected governor in the 2016 general election with 52% of the vote.[1] In 2018, he won re-election to a second term by a wider margin.[2] Scott was elected to a third term in 2020 with a 41% victory margin, the largest for a state gubernatorial election since 1996 and the largest for a Republican since 1950.[3] He was previously the 80th Lieutenant Governor of Vermont, an office he held from 2011 to 2017. Before serving as Lieutenant Governor, he was a State Senator representing the Washington County district from 2001 to 2011.

As of 2021, he has been the only member of the Republican Party to hold statewide office in Vermont.

The FDA approves vaccines that are found to be safe.

Emergency use authorization is given when documentation strongly suggest any harm will be less than the benefits.

Its actually a pretty high bar in the case of vaccinating children as the benefits are very small.

But its all political, so who cares really if the harm is greater than the benefits for use on children.

Herd immunity is at 80-85%, dummy. It's not achievable. Covid in your country is endemic and given its mutation rates, will require yearly booster shots for personal protection.

So you are ok with children being injected, though the harm is likely greater than the benefit for them?

One, 80-85% is not an an established figure for sure.

Two, between vaccinations and previous infections, herd immunity is quite achievable. 30 million cases have been reported in the US so far, which probably means that 20-30% of the population has already gotten the virus (including those who were asymptomatic at the time).

Three, who said the vaccinations were harmful in the first place? "Not proven safe" is not the same as "is unsafe." Logic fail.

Four, kids are relatively safe from Covid, not completely so. As long as the vaccines don't kill more than 250 of them or so, vaccination will be better than no vaccination.

Five, you said that less than 50% of the population would be vaccinated by 2022. lol!

Thete are trials on child vaccines, licensing will follow.

The lack of licensing isn't so much about harm be as lack of trial and the lack of direct benefit to offset risk of harm. One trial data shows they face no risk from the vaccine, licensing will follow.

And yes ultimately it's a good idea to avoid children being a vector and reservoir for the virus facilitating the evolution of more vaccine escape candidates.

jergul

Herd immunity is not a static number. It is achieved when R0 is less than 1. R0 depends on the virulence of a disease on a population with certain characteristics.

New variants have a R0 = ~5.5 for a business as usual US population.

More than 80% of your population needs to be immune for R0 to fall below 1 (each infected person infects less than 1 other person).

CVS has 10,000, Walgreens has 9,000, Rite-Aid has 2,000...and also, these places are administering vaccines over a period of many months, as opposed to polling places which need to accommodate everyone who plans to visit one in 12 or fewer hours.

The lack of licensing is becaus no vaccine has been proven to be safe for any age group.

Take the case of blood clotting. Not safe. But the benefit outweighs the harm for adults above the age of 50 almost certainly.

The number of participants to verify safety in use on children would need to be in the 100ds of thousands given the small benefit a given vaccine provides to that group. It may be feasible, but I doubt it.

What even is this inanity?

The dynamics of food deserts are way different from those of vaccine sites. You need to buy food on a regular basis, but you only need to visit a vaccine site twice.

The incentives for making a one-off trip to get a shot are big, even if you don't live in the immediate proximity of a vaccination site. The incentives for choosing to hike it to Whole Foods every week instead of just getting McDonalds for dinner, not so much.

But all of this is irrelevant as pharmacies aren't the only places offering vaccines; I didn't even begin to list all the places that do or will. Hospitals and medical facilities in particular tend to be accessible to the urban poor.

The fact that you were weren't aware of this suggests that it's you who knows nothing about this country.

I am sure the UK has its own way of approving medicines. Mass programmes have to be proven very safe, even in the UK.

You are still on emergency licensing for all covid vaccines, right?

Lots of things are nice to do, but not under emergency authorization with the emphasis on vaccinating the entire adult population.

I am sure the covid booster shots will eventually follow the same format as whatever you are doing for seasonal flu. But that is a few years down the line.

But this is political of course. But I would not expose children before proper formal approval is in place. The ethics of even a few kids taking one for the team is not really acceptable.

Am am not antivax in any way, but as it stands, vaccinating children may very well have a negative marginal utility (expanding vaccination to include kids might do more harm than good.

Jergul:

There was no vaccine manufacturing capacity in the UK in 2019. It has moved to the EU.

Such capacity there is now operating is due solely to UK govt investments in 2020, with the first wave made in April 2020 (which also included 20m in invested in the Dutch plant at Leiden, Halix). For the production lines HMG financed, they ask for the first X doses. This is the why they made the investment and did not yet on global existing capacity.


Firms are free to export to the EU, which is why I'm August, Astrazenica agreed to expand production facilities at two of the UK sites to service the EU. The new production lines to service the EU contract are not yet producing - set up time, plus 70 day culture, plus 1 month QA process.





Seb

I suspect though, the EU having in effect comandeered the UK investments in Halix, the UK will do the same to the UK investments in Cobra and Oxford Biologica.
Seb
Member
Sun Apr 04 05:40:10
The UK investments in the CMOs (Halix, Cobra and Oxford Biologica) are direct and predate Astrazenica's award of the exclusive license.

I suspect the obligations those firms have to UK were transferred to AZUK.

AZAB appears to have been an intermediary between the ECs contract and placed and holds the contract with the CMOs that serve the EC contract.

A simple solution to the EUs export ban then is for AZAB to agree a variation in its own contracts to such that when the prod capacity at OxfordBiologica and Cobra comes on line, this is used to make up the lost capacity from Halix, and the 20m investment cost is applied to the EU contract via the price variation mechanism (the investment in Halix being a direct cost of manufacture).

Banning exports through the use of contracts is still a ban.

I am not questioning the UK and US doing it so much as I am EUs not acting with repriocity immediately.

The gap in vaccinations is fully explained by the UK and US having export bans and the EU not having one.
Seb

Sun Apr 04 10:38:42
Jergul:

Incorrect. The UK govt bought new capacity in UK to supply itself, rather than relying on existing manufacturing capacity.

The argument that as it does not allow that capacity to supply other contracts until it's own are fulfilled is thereforetantamount to an export ban is absurd.

Indeed the ECs argument to justify their own export ban is that AZ should preferentially fulfill EU orders in full ahead of others.

The UK didn't block exports jergul.

The EU expects it's own contracts to be honoured before firms take new orders. They even wrote a clause into their contract requiring those signing an APA not to undertake any contract that would prevent a supplier fulfilling the EC contract. That's not an export restriction either. But if it is, then the EC was so swift to act they had an export ban in place (impressively banning export of AZ drugs from UK based CMOs to anywhere other than the EU) from August 2020!


The only reason AZ isn't exporting drugs from the UK to the EU is that, having only got an order in August, the CMOs production isn't ready for export.

Had the EU placed an order in May, the exports would be happening.

So basically, the EU doesnt want to pay much, buys late and gives very little in R&D and are salty and shocked that they are not placed first.

What a bunch of cheap, snobby tight wads.

And then have the demented idea that the US "broke capitalism", what a crock of shit.

We treated this like a military attack, have we broken capitalism by having government control of the military? No

Sore losers, throw tour temper tantrum and ban exports, the US doesnt need EU vaccines anyway.We have received 1 million doses from them, gave away 6.5 million and still dwarf them.

I mean how entitled and bitchy can you get?

Vaccines made by giant US for-profit pharmaceutical companies: 100s of millions.

Vaccines made by eu state governments: 0.0

Hmmmmmm

The UK and US designed contracts that banned exports. A variant of the cunning use of flags as Izzard puts it.

The only flaw with the EUs handling is that it was too slow to invoke repriocity.

Stop whining about wanting the EU to export its vaccines, mkay?

You know that will be gloating like crazy once we get to the final accounting of the toll covid-19 made.

I wonder what metric you will try to use then to showcase American superiority.

Perhaps the quality of engineering put into your mass graves?

"I wonder what metric you will try to use then to showcase American superiority."

Norway did ok, but I doubt the EU fared as well. Do we have complete gdps and job rates etc. Yet for comparison?

In this thread alone, you have maintained your stance that 50% of the population won't be vaccinated by 2022, compared vaccination sites to both polling places and food deserts, and argued that one-fifth of the population should be kept unvaccinated because you confused a lack of research on harmful effects with proven harm.

Maybe you should consider cutting your losses and accepting your defeat already? We can of course continue here if you want to persist in being embarrassed on a repeated basis.

"Rugian, SC has a program now to send Nurses to your house to administer the shots for people who have trouble getting out.

And SC is objectively one of the shittier states, but they do ok at dewling with rural issues."

Yep. All 50 states are doing their best to maximize access for residents. Some states are admittedly doing a better job of this than others at the moment, but at the end of the day everyone is eager to fully reopen.

The fact that jergul doesn't see this is one of the (many) reasons why he is failing so hard here. It's difficult to accurately gauge the extent of the vaccination effort in the US when you've spent the last year being holed up in your Arctic igloo.

It is pretty obvious that emergency used authorization should not include use on children if doing is provides very little benefit to them and is likely to cause net harm.

What? You needed the under 18s to make your 50% by 2022?

How incredibly unethical of you.

"You needed the under 18s to make your 50% by 2022?"

No, according to the NYT covid vaccine tracker:

http://www...us/covid-19-vaccine-doses.html

"78%
This is equal to all adults, 18 and older. Children under 16 are not yet eligible."
