Want COVID 19 Vaccine In America?

Wait your turn!

Take what vaccine comes your way first!

I’ve kept my mouth shut thru the entire COVID crisis, not one post. Today is my day. 

In order for the WORLD to kick the COVID  19 virus and prepare for the next killer virus, 70-80% of the world population has to take the vaccine to stamp it out! That’s a TON of vaccines. That’s a TON of science behind creating a vaccine in under 10 years. It’s a TON, a logistic nightmare that is not managed in a central process under a standard set of rules.

Each state, county, and city can do their own processes, they are given guidance by the CDC, which by the way is the leading scientific organization we have in America, but each entity who thinks they know better can serve the vaccines as they wish.

I know you’ve heard all this information in bits every day but the bottom line is there are so many moving parts and time is still only 24 hours in a day. We have several promising vaccines and possibly one getting approval this week. We still need millions and millions of doses and companies and time to make enough for everyone to get a vaccine.

Why am I stating the obvious, I just need to vent. There are people who truly need the vaccine first, and even if you don’t or I don’t agree, which may be on a number of issues, there are some clear lines. Even with what I see are clear lines, my state, county, and city may not administer exactly as I would prioritize. That is life!

Dr. Fuchi has made it clear when he thinks we will all have a chance to get vaccinated, there are logistic hurdles in there beyond his control but I buy into his theory that by the end of this year everyone that wants a vaccine will have a chance to get one. Last week I heard him say a much more aggressive timeframe but I’m not buying into or repeating that one. I work hard to deliver no FAKE news here.

Everyone will get a shot, we have to wait our turn and realize science is already working at warped speed and our day will come.

If you’ve already received your shot, Thank GOD! You’re a good American and a smart person. I look forward to my day, I’m on the High-Risk list but no vaccine has been available to me yet. I will be in line with pride, with my MASK ON to take my shot and kick COVID 19 in the ass.

  1. Considering the situation in Malaysia, the vaccination is broken down into several phases namely:-

    Phase 1 – February to April 2021, will cover 500,000 frontliners who are directly involved in the fight against Covid-19.

    Phase 2 – April to August 2021, will target 9.4 million people who are in the high-risk group, comprising senior citizens above 60 years old, people with non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, and people with disabilities

    Phase 3 – May 2021 to February 2022, is for all remaining individuals including adults aged 18 years and above

    There are several reasons why vaccines are not rolled out at the same time and instead by phases.

    First is the number of vaccines available is not enough to roll out to all in one go. Malaysia is yet to start it’s own manufacturing of the vaccines although some memorandums have been signed with some foreign pharmaceutical companies.

    Second is the government is also looking at different manufacturer of vaccines other than the famed Pfizer vaccine. Some of these vaccines like one from China’s Sinovac is still pending trials and approvals.

    Third is convincing citizens to trust and go for vaccination. Not surprisingly there are some people who still not convinced of the effectiveness of vaccines. Registration via the MySejahtera app is still low despite the government’s campaigns and reminders.

    1. We have the same issue here with people not wanting to take the vaccine. It’s going to take the majority of people to take the vaccine in order to kick it out, otherwise, it stays around and remains a big problem. I see some huge challenges in getting the vaccine to the poorest countries and those with governments that are not allowing them to enter. It’s been 100 years since we had a pandemic and if we don’t get this one under control no telling how quickly another one will come. I was venting because there are so many arrogant people who think they need to be at first of the line when they don’t qualify. This is no time for ego’s we have to vaccinate with some system and reasoning. I’m concerned that teachers are not a priority in our country. Yet we force them to go into classrooms as possibly expose themselves.

  2. Wise words, Melinda.

    I wish I could have the covid-19 vaccine. But my doctor has advised me not to, because I have had severe anaphylactic shock reaction to a chemical that she believes may be related to an ingredient in the vaccine. I’m tempted to get the vaccine anyway, because that’s how much I want it. But I won’t. I hope you can get your vaccine soon.

    1. I know what you’re talking about and it can be very dangerous. It’s a shame you don’t have another option, I guess the EpiPen won’t do? I think we’re in this for the long haul until we can control the variants. My gut is this is going to become an annual vaccine because it mutates so much just like the flu does each year. Buy and wear a good mask and limit exposure and you are as safe as you can be. And of course, take frequent Clorox Showers.
