Kate Brown’s plan is largely a copy, if not actually a verbatim copy, of the CDC’s guidelines for vaccine distribution.

Exactly. Bezos and Bezos’ company does not get first dibs.

They will once the must haves are done.
If they could get enough for everybody at once then great but the reality is there are people at greater risk of exposure and they need to be done first.
Of course the screams of equality will ring out but many of those voices will be the same that refuse to wear masks and think the 6 foot rule is silly.

The idea is that if we produce the spike protein and not the rest of the virus, our immune system will recognize it and build a defense against it, so that when we are exposed to COVID, our immune system is already prepared to destroy the virus.

Now, mRNA is also in something called a retrovirus like HIV, which reverse transcribes its RNA into the host cells DNA and then the host cell transcribes the DNA back to RNA to be translated into more viruses, which eventually destroy the cell and burst out to go find other cells to infect. But, these retroviruses also have unique enzymes for converting the RNA back to DNA. A normal cell doesn't normally have these enzymes. If it did then they would be constantly cloning copies of their own DNA.................
Now, what the hell could go wrong there? -

The book was awesome, the movie not so much. No surprise I guess.

Iím sure it will change even if there was a poll, and a poll here is likely not representative. Many people might pass on the initial batch, but might take it later when the rest of the world isnít turning into zombies or developing cancer or dying. Also, the adoption rate will be much higher with people who have the worst preexisting conditions and the oldest.

There are other vaccines going through approval as wellómany. Some of them uses inactivated or weakened viruses and others use viruses from other animals that would not normally cause illness. Regardless, these viruses deliver the spike protein, have the spike protein or code for the spike protein to cause an immune response. Several are much more stable at manageable temperatures.

Quote:
Currently, there are 11 vaccine candidates at the last stage of phase III trials, including the four named above. Overall, as per the latest data released by the WHO on COVID-19 vaccines (last updated on 12 November 2020), there are 48 candidate vaccines undergoing clinical evaluation at various stages, whereas, 164 candidate vaccines are in preclinical evaluation.
