After the Vice president comments it is looking more and more likely that residents will not be included in the vaccination program in this country. The VP said the roll out should start next week and will be based on the electoral roll, which does not contain the names on legal resients with a no vota Cedula.

We may have to purchase our vaccine and that will probably not be an option until much later in the process. So unfair and short sighted in my opinion - but no one asked me. I wish there was a way to point out to the Govt that they are making a mistake adopting this limited plan. While not a major portion of the population residents interact with society every day and they can and do get sick and spread it around.

Mr AE agrees with you and just went on a rant. Most legal residents can afford to buy the vaccine (assuming that’s even a possibility), but what about the millions of poor Haitians and Venezuelans? They’ll never contain the virus this way. Is the thought to protect citizens first, and the others later? 🤦‍♀️

Also I would suspect that a large number of residents also fall into the older age bracket which is more susceptible to complications and lots of these older retired folks will have underlying health issues that make them even more vulnerable to Covid. I am very disappointed in the DR. Govt. I had such high hopes that they would care about everyone living in the country and as we struggle through this pandemic together.

Everything I am seeing does confirm that vaccinations are to be for citizens with cedulas. Articles are appearing about citizens being confused as
to which voting location they have to go to for the vaccinations.

Others can perhaps eventually purchase them. For those who cannot afford that, it has been mentioned in the news that the WHO should be responsible.

I very much doubt the DR government will vaccinate illegals if they don't vaccinate even legal residents.

Nobody knows how long the various vaccines protect for. So if it takes until the end of 2021 to vaccinate everyone and the vaccine has already worn off for the first group that were vaccinated, it becomes a continuous cycle even if "everyone" were vaccinated.

There are no vaccines made in RD.
As a consequence we are in the 100% of being a receiver consumer; and we are consumers regardless of the product.
It is only my opinion, but before buying a consumer product we usually buy based upon knowledge of product, history of product and impact the product will have upon our lives and lifestyle, depending upon product.
bear with me please!
If I was to buy a new car in the RD I would be asking about if the Warranty was good, service was available and the historical facts about that particular car.

This is a health product with no actual history, without full trials and scientific conclusions.
SO, it is quite normal to go on line and assess the results of ''vaccines'' already in the operational applications.
I personally think this outside RD assessment is important to discuss whether or not to accept the vaccine here in RD ; however it is just that ''subjective information at best''.
Sure maybe people have died and have had adverse effects from the CV19 Vaccine worldwide; the same happens every year when people get the Flu Vaccine.
That is the risk we take.... but we do have a choice and that is the genius of the whole thing, isn't it?

Good debate about an ''unknown'' is just that ;Good Debate!.
In this case there is no right or wrong, simply suppositions based upon subjective information ...objectivity can only enter into the equation once scientific /medical information is available from the most reliable sources.
So being the human being that I am , I am influenced by what I hear, see and touch....
The Jury is still out on this matter, we should assess what we can garner and make initial opinions that can be turned over by the next information presented. Let us be flexible, understanding, and willing to compromise.
All your opinions are important to me; as are the opinions of others in the Global Community.

In the end , it is my choice of what I do ''Will I take the COVID 19 Vaccine in the RD?"
It has nothing to do with the government but everything to do with my personal opinion and ultimate decision ''To do, or Not to do".

OK you all have a good debate, Blessings.

Some men will swallow the little blue pill produced by Pfizer without question, and they won’t get the Pfizer Covid vaccine because they fear side effects. The battle of the two heads, I guess.
Correct and should understand that the ''little blue pill'' was developed to treat cardiovascular disease ( sildenafil) ... .
Cialis one (Tadalafil ) invented to treat BHP a known Prostatic Hyperplasia medical condition. Both have been tested and approved for the designated conditions. The side effects seem to help ED as well... so be it. Although never initially intended.
So I return to Ivermectin, like Viagra worked well on Animals; works well on humans as well.
The Vaccine is an unknown, no proof as being a long term solution ...simply because there is no historical long term data , so far only effective for 3-4 months. Side effects are important , and need to be assessed both by Medical Profession and you personally.
An intelligent individual will make full assessments before accepting any vaccine. I have taken many vaccines over the past 77 years, all were proven and we know the side effects, risks and mortality rate of those who had adverse side effects.
It will be a matter of history , objective data and real measurable criteria that will determine the effectiveness of the Vaccines.
Yes it is a crap shoot...then again what isn't?
But I will say that my BHP is under control... great side effects. LOL
