Johnson & Johnson vaccine approved for Chile. My wife and I have searched high and low here in the 5th Region for Pfizer with no luck. Hopefully J&J will be more readily available.

To be fair, he's 73. Not all elderly people develop a large enough antibody count.

now they are saying he tested negative on a PCR test.

perhaps he was just hung over and needed to sleep in.

The vaccine numbers are still shockingly low in the poorest and most populated parts of the metro region.

the worse estation central, which is super loaded with foriegners from Haiti, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, etc.

well, who knows. perhaps locking down Santiago will motivate a few more people to get their vaccination just to get the mobility pass. 😆

Have you looked at the DEIS page where they track the vaccines administered? It can show you where (what health center) is using Pfizer.

I was about to post a link to the news of a new shipment of Pfizer arriving, but the admin beat me to it.

at last some news on the variants:
https://www.latercera.com/la-tercera-pm ... A4KU43C2Q/
so, 80% approx is Brazilian and Peruvian - I think that goes a long way to explain the current wave in Chile. Went from none-existent in Feb...
As always, information about data is lacking. No idea how they reached those numbers.

Thanks for the news on the variants.

Makes sense and would perhaps be the main reason why cases have not declined as the vaccines have been rolled out. This is probably the missing piece in the jigsaw that I was going on about earlier, the explanation why cases always seem to be on the high end of the possibilities.

Presumably if 100 people are dying per day at the moment that would be 200-300 per day if it wasn't the vaccine given the 2-3 higher death rates in other countries that I posted a while back. So the vaccines given out in Chile may be saving 100-200 lives per day or 700-1400 per week or 3000-6000 per month.

This bit from the article you shared is slightly alarming "Así, la variante P.1 -según los primeros estudios- sería doblemente más transmisible que la cepa original y tendría cierta capacidad de evadir la respuesta inmune de infecciones previas y de las vacunas."
More info on P1 https://www.businessinsider.com/p1-vari ... ess-2021-4

I think Chile should start to offer Pfizer to older/more vulnerable people that have already had Sinovac (provided they are able to conclude that it is safe to do so).

And perhaps add next to the "% of target/objective vaccinated" we should have "% of adults" and "% of total population". The original idea that 70% vaccination levels might end the pandemic looks a bit suspect at this point - at least in Chile- given that we are already at about 50%. This idea of an objective target might turn out to be just a milestone rather than an end goal.

It probably makes sense at this point to aim to vaccinate about 80% of the entire population of Chile. That might mean something like 90% of adults and 50% of children. Looks like a tall order to be honest.

They are going to have to come up with some new ideas.

How about going door to door late evenings and weekend? I think 10% of the population is probably too busy/lazy etc to go the vaccine centre, and is slightly resistant to getting the vaccine, but not quite enough that they will say no to a nurse knocking on their door and asking them to help themselves and their family and the country.
