@jwildeboer We need to be careful with the vaccine, though. From what I've read, it may not work for everyone (e.g. the elderly), and we don't entirely know how long the immunity will last.
At least some of the restrictions will be loosened when the immunity of the vaccinated is proven.
@Ertain it will not be one vaccine. There will be several.
@jwildeboer Well yes ... it's a win-win. We'll have more data before going to general population, and people in need of it get it earlier.
@jwildeboer I disagree: the first people to get the vaccine should be pharma executives and seniormost politicians. Because if anybody should be taking that risk, it should be them. When they have skin in the game, they'll make sure that shit's safe. After we've seen what it does to the politicians and CEOs, then let's think about giving it to teachers and doctors. Like when China ordered airline executives to fly on January 1, 2000: that will get them focused.
