Vaccine Roll out in USA is Very Good

The pandemic needs data and until enough in compiled, we are going to see a flood of doubt, or speculation and of misinformation.
This is going to come, mainly, from emotional responses.
-- How does this affect me & my family?
-- I heard a story about a story from some guy who heard it from...
-- I am afraid so I will voice my fears, even if I don't understand what a threat could actually be for me.

There is a great Axios article comparing the vaccine roll out for the USA, for the EU, etc.
- I think this geographic comparative is disingenuous at best, because the vaccine, hell the virus itself does not rely on any geographic limitations. It's everywhere and it's for everyone.

But, the article does show that the US roll out of vaccine distribution is about three times faster than the EU.
-- We did have an actual vaccine before the EU, we can manufacture it faster than the EU and we have a far larger medical access network that the EU does.

I for one and glad that, both the USA and EU and other 'continents, are rolling our vaccinations as fast as they can.

This aggressive roll out means our governments are working well, and are effective.

When is cannot deliver one vaccine, within a geographic location, then raise the alarm.
Not one nation is not vaccinating it's citizens. Not one.


Oops... forgot the Axios link.... https://www.axios.com/vaccine-distribution-by-country-us-rollout-doses-9c47fa53-6a2e-4c56-8792-dd31bee34b10.html

1. "As fast as they can?" Here in the EU, it's not fast because they can't.

Specifically, here in Germany, it's state-by-state chaos. Here in NRW (Düsseldorf area), Germany's most populous state, we still don't know if or when we'll get vaccinated, with what, or even whom to call. We sure know who NOT to call--and that's everybody we call. Doctors, government, they all say, "no idea, try calling this number...."

3. It doesn't seem so good here in Ohio. I put myself on the waiting list at the county at least

a month ago and haven't heard anything. I will be am 73 next month and have younger friends that are Florida snowbirds that have received two shots in Florida. So far I haven't found any shots available at the local pharmacies. The people I know that qualify for VA benefits have all got shots. I am a veteran but have an AGI over $34000 I don't qualify for the VA benefits. I have friends that sold out their pensions for cash that get full medical care from the VA.

4. Call your primary care doctor

and they can help you get an appointment. At your age.

Take action on your own health care. It is what you can do that counts. Don't wait for someone to contact you, you take charge.

Good Luck

Great advice!

6. Haven't heard anything yet in KCMO.

I guess the shots went to the red rural areas.
