Covid Vaccine

Although I rarely comment on social issues, Am I missing something? If we have Covid Spread at an alarming rate Why Wouldn't You Vaccinate the general population who are spreading it. I'm 75 with conditions but I can say with certainty that us old folks including Nursing Homes are not the ones spreading it. I also think the Military should be at the top of distribution. Is the current plan the Medical Community's way of perpetuating Care $$$$$$'s. Hospitalizations, Nursing Homes etc. Think about it.

Not sure, but think the point of the vaccine right now is not necessarily to stop the spread but to hopefully protect the most vulnerable from being infected and that would include health care workers who are more likely to be exposed via their jobs and nursing home patients who are not able to protect themselves.

You have to stop the bleeding before you can treat the wound. Heath care is an easy first because of the frequent contact. Next is to treat the most vulnerable groups. If they get it, the chance of death is much higher. There is really no right or wrong answer here though. All points are valid.

It's going to be a long while before there's enough shots to create a herd immunity. Stopping the spread could be accomplished by just following the safety guidelines, but there some amongst us that that think a piece of cloth worn over the face infringes on their Constitutional rights. Seat belts, no problem, the hundreds of safety regulations, no problem, but a little mask? Now you've gone too far. It's sad how selfish it is.

Oh no......this just in: UK reports new Covid strain spreads more quickly and may be more deadly. Are we going to need another vaccine for the new variant of Covid 19?

It is a virus which will mutate, why would one not expect this too happen. Sad to say but lets hope we can put a damper on this virus, as to eliminating it all together it will not happen. Just like the flu it is here and we need to learn to live with it.
