Europe and U.S. should donate up to 5 percent of vaccine doses to developing nations, Macron says (msn.com)
...
Macron suggested allocating between 4 and 5 percent of current vaccine supplies in Europe and the United States and transferring them quickly to developing nations “so that people on the ground see it happening.”

“It’s not about vaccine diplomacy, it’s not a power game — it’s a matter of public health,” he said.

Groups that track vaccine distribution and supply say that wealthy nations have not only raced ahead in the number of doses they have administered but also have placed large advance purchase orders with a variety of manufacturers before poorer nations.

So much for America First and American taxpayers if (when) it happens.

I see this as beneficial for American's too. Kind of like how you vaccinate your dog for rabies - if the dog gets rabies and bites you then you are in for either a painful death or a series of painful shots. Either way, vaccinating the dog is to your benefit.

Our local government to the north (Shelby County, TN) is more of a threat to public health than the CCP bat virus ... JMO.

Shelby County Health Department's vaccine debacle part of longer list of inconsistencies in dealing with public (wreg.com)

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — When Shelby County Health Department Director Alisa Haushalter spoke last Friday about 1,300 vaccine doses they let expire, she cited the winter storm.

“You’re all aware we’ve had to close sites the last week because of weather conditions,” she said.

But the Tennessee Department of Health’s investigation yielded more concerning results.

“We believe the majority of this wastage was not weather related. It was six different expiration events that occurred between February 3 and February 12,” Dr. Lisa Piercey said.

State officials said the county actually had to throw away a lot more than Haushalter said due to mismanagement: around 2,400 doses. And they reported Shelby County had an excess of 30,000 doses in storage.

Those are just some of the inconsistencies since January regarding vaccine distribution in Shelby County.

From the beginning, the Health Department told people to bring proof of eligibility to vaccine appointments but never followed through on confirming eligibility when people showed up, leading to questions about whether the most vulnerable people really were getting the vaccine.

“They had my license with me in case they checked that. They did not ask for that,” said a clinical psychologist who got the vaccine at the Pipkin Building in January.

March 1st, COVID-19 vaccination eligibility will be expanded to include teachers, staff and employees in K-12, preschool or childcare settings as well as to first responders and personnel in law enforcement, public safety, fire services and emergency management.
Which was what it was originally supposed to have been before the goobinor decided to put the elevated risk class ahead of teachers and first responders.

Thank Goodness the President then took care of the elevated risk people ahead of those that was not a high risk. Whats really shameful is the people that would take from the elevated risk category to give to others.

If I believed COVID was as bad as is alleged. (I do not.) and if I beloved this vaccine was safe. (I do not.) I’d probably put those that are necessarily exposed due to a job that must be done, like medical workers, first responders, and even grocery store workers, ahead of the vulnerable that could be protected through other means.

A new form of the coronavirus is spreading rapidly in New York City, and it carries a worrisome mutation that may weaken the effectiveness of vaccines, two teams of researchers have found.

The new variant, called B.1.526, first appeared in samples collected in the city in November. By the middle of this month, it accounted for about one in four viral sequences appearing in a database shared by scientists.

The various mutations probably won't be as scary as those two researchers, the nytimes, and uniformed arm-chair internet medical specialists, make them out to be.

"Dr. Danielle Ompad, an epidemiologist who was not involved with the two studies, said she is not surprised that a new variant has been identified in New York.

"Moving forward, we will see a lot of reports like this of new variants emerging," Ompad said. "I don't think this is going to be unusual. It's just that we're keeping track of it better right now."

The new variant may weaken the effectiveness of vaccines, according to the studies. West called that "a possibility."

"The most likely scenario is that it might tend to cause people to have mild infections more frequently," he said.

So far, neither study has undergone scrutiny by a peer review to confirm the data have been collected and interpreted properly. That will be the next step."
