Chile has passed 25% of the population vaccinated.
I don't think so - about 12-13% have received 1st dose in Chile. Very, very few have received 2.

The problem with the "wait and see" approach is that if too many adapt it, then we will not reach herd immunity...
I am healthy, in my fourties etc, but will accept the vaccine when available (even the Chinese one), because I think that is the only way that we in time will overcome this pandemia.

sorry, correction. 25% with at least one dose. I made that distinction earlier, and forgot to do it in that post.

so pfizer vaccine is found to be 85% effective after 1 dose in a new study, and they have also informed the FDA that their vaccine can be stored at standard refrigerator temps now.

Still thinks that is too high, but they are moving quickly. Last figures I saw was 2.6 million have received 1st dose. That should be about 14-15% of population.

As much as I would like to feel protected, I will wait to hear from people (braver than I) with severe penicillin allergy who survived their two-vaccination series before I line up for mine.

but, do not under estimate the vaccine influence war that is going on in the world right now.

It is simply too tempting for those that would like to reorganize the world order to ignore; and niether should you.

Chile now fifth in the world for the population receiving at least one dose of the vaccine. 12.27%.
Remarkable considering the time span.

the doctor on new studies supporting a single dose strategy for Pfizer and Moderna, delaying the second dose to 3 months to maximize the supply.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=is7XpudFGJ8

notice, we still have no data of any sort for sinovac, even though supposed phase 3 trials were completed months ago.

the Chinese are refusing to publish or share the data with anyone. not even hong kong was given the data. They refuse to submit it for aproval to any regulatory agency cable of providing any in-depth scrutiny (e.g. EU,U.S., etc). They won't submit to medical jounals, beyond vague PR releases that cherry pick the data.

In Hungary, they insisted on rewriting their supply contracts to not guarantee 70% efficacy, and they also wanted to remove responsibility for manufacturing quality control from the contract.

But, here we are with no data about its effect on the varrients that are out there; although there is some speculation that as it is a killed virus, it should match more of the genome of the virus overall. still, no data on that.
