Government should not commit to any long term agreements for the supply of vaccines since the Johnson and Johnson version, which was supposed to be approved yesterday, seems to be the most practical for this country and is the only one that promises to prevent persons from getting critically ill from the corona virus and also promises to help prevent deaths in critically ill and hospitalized patients. Other benefits touted are (1) the J&J vaccine does not have to be stored in sub-zero temperatures, which makes the logistics of distribution less costly and less complicated. And the J&J vaccine only requires one shot annually, which will also be more cost effective and easier to administer.

At some point we should be allowed to get vaccinated by our doctors not just government...

Will the vaccination be some other means to restrict and control? They are now requiring a travel visa. Will they eventually require persons to be vaccinated to travel or to attend events and institutions? Are the corona cases falling too rapidly for some people’s benefit?
