2.8 million does, which means 1.4 millions people, as the Pfizer vaccine requires two doses within 21 days.
Smaller states, like Hawai'i and Wisconsin will get only 5,000 doses (so halve that getting it). Northeast Ohio is only slated for 89,000 doses.
Also, a recent survey said only 43% of Americans are on-board with getting the vaccine. I am one of those 43%.
Watch your xmas packages slow to a crawl, as transport - especially air - has been given priority by the government to move these doses. This is fine. Your nut logs from Harry & David can wait.
Maybe it's irony, or coincidence, that the advisory approval comes on the (so far) deadliest day from Covid in the United States.
Anyway - to the site.
I'm not 100% sure this NYT site on where you fall in line for a vaccine by your location is horribly accurate. At least in Ohio, the governor got to be the determining factor in where the shipments go. The hospital system for which I work - and is large - isn't even ON the list for the first go-round. It's unclear when we will get any other than the left-over doses from the trial we did.
The questions are a bit vague too. I work in a hospital - but am I healthcare worker? I think not. Am I essential? Lord, I hope, but in reality, perhaps not. Can I milk my past cancer to move up on the list? Yes, but probably shouldn't. It's past.
It might just be a very very very rough guide. And if so, it seems I'm roughly one-third the way down the list in my county to roll up my sleeve.
I can live with that.....................assuming I live till it happens.
