    When offered the Vaccine, will you take it?

    Given the fact that most airlines are running a little less than half capacity and the FAA just cleared all the 737 Max's to fly again, they should be able to find the planes and pilot capacity. However, the refrigeration might be an issue.

    After studying your charts for several minutes I find them highly similar! lol!

    Do you think 70% of the people will take the vaccine given the opportunity? (we almost all take measles and small pox shots but many people still don't take flu shots even though they have been proven very safe and effective) Also, do you think we need at least 70% of the population to get vaccinated or, for example, if we get 30-40% of the most vulnerable people vaccinated will the seriousness of the problem be reduced to the point where it no longer warrants all the economic/travel restrictions.

    The CDC says the vaccine will be made available in the US toward the end of the second week of December in a “hierarchical way with priority going to nursing home residents and then some combination of health care providers and individuals at high risk for a poor outcome” It feels good to have a date that will likely mark the beginning of the end of this crap.

    I’m hoping that once the vulnerable population have an opportunity to get the vaccination then the rules will be relaxed...because those who are most worried can be protected.

    Lol, yes there is certainly a lot of political BS surrounding the issue. I was just hoping someone had more info than I could google.

    Sorry if this was already discussed, but does anyone have any current/accurate information (info-guesses) when the vaccine will actually be available in the US for the average person.

    European Travel Guesses?

    I have no idea whether WestCoast has another account or not, or if he does, what he is saying on the other account, but I found his responses on this thread to be directly relevant to the questions I asked. In fact, I found his responses to be the most relevant and informative regarding what is actually happening in Europe now. Also, while I'm well aware that there are strong opinions on the matter, nothing Westcoast said on this thread showed that he has "no regard for those who have lost their lives, their health or their income." In fact, he seems to have more regard for some European's need for income than many of those who strongly objected to his traveling. Regarding their lives and health, I assume he merely has a different opinion about the threat he is personally posing.

    Not the best data for sure, but you can use that data to get an idea if COVID is the only lethal risk that is increased in 2020 by taking the baseline average and the percentage 2020 increase to calculate a real death total and then compare your calculation to the yearly number of COVID deaths for that age range. Granted, there are a large number of confounding variables, such as likely reductions of daily hazards that are related to commuting and other activities that many people are doing much less.

    I admit that I just found this report in response to the request for a link. I think I originally just heard a statement from someone related to the CDC says something to that effect (perhaps it was the quote BlatantEcho posted) However, Figure 2 in this report shows a fairly significant increase in deaths in 2020 compared to the same weeks in 2015-2019, by age group. (actually more significant in the 25-44 year old group) The assumption is that the increase in deaths is lock-down stress related (suicide and alcohol and drug related)

    I would interpret his statement as meaning that we are experiencing more additional suicides and/or drug overdoes than COVID deaths among teenagers (or school age children), which are possibly because of lock-down related stresses. But this is a rather innocuous statement because the number of people 18 years old or young that have died of COVID is very, very small. (20 or so total).

    I have heard from many sources that US domestic flights are now typically pretty close to full (although there are still many fewer flights). In July and August many of those flights were relatively empty.

    I definitely agree regarding effective therapeutics, in fact, I think the average survival rate is already much higher than last spring.

    Yes, the Chinese and Russians are certainly not dumb so there is a decent chance that they may have a good vaccine but I trust our scientific protocols a bit more. Another related question might be: What percentage of the population needs to take the vaccine in order to consider rollout successful? Certainly not everyone. Is there a science-based answer to that question?...eyesailor?)
