Not sure of I fit in the first group to get it or the second group. I am 64 with a quadruple bypass so probably that qualifies me for first group. I have no problem taking the Indian vaccine or the others but hesitant about the Chinese vaccine. My sons have both had their second shots of Moderna and my mother is getting hers at the end of the month.
why would you be "hesitant" about taking the China vaccine?

Why wouldn't I be.
Perhaps its the complicity of the World Health Organization in accepting the Chinese attempted cover up that there was no evidence of human to human transmission of the virus;

How China Deceived the WHO

U.S. senators are calling for investigations and the president is threatening to cut off funding. What happened?

Or the two courageous doctors (Le Wenliang and Ai Fen) who blew the whistle and either died...........or disappeared.

Step right up and roll up those sleeves............what could go wrong.........China to the rescue lol.

I had Pfizer one five weeks ago second dose in April, they are doing it 12 weeks apart in the UK. Arm ached less than with a flu jab, all good so far.

This may be the answer to travel

Interesting. In the USA, Pfizer shots are 3 weeks apart. Moderna are 4.

Anyone know how DR is scheduling 2nd doses?

I don't know the answer for the DR but what I do know is important to consider: After I got my second Modena I asked the tech if all I got for proof. was my appointment card filled in on the second line with the date, etc. He turned his computer screen around and showed me the data he was filling in for the CDC. Compete record of what vaccine, batch number, date, what center and my personal information.
There will come a day when you will need to prove you are vaccinated to fly. That day is on the way. All signs lead to that.
My question: What is the DR going to do for its' people?

Why would it be the answer to travel, if it only "lessens" systems.
It does not make one immune to the virus themselves, nor passing it on to others.
You can still make Nana sick.

It was going to be 3 weeks but they decided to give more people a first dose and extend the time between doses to no more than 12 weeks apart. 1 in 3 adults have had a first dose some of the 80/90 year olds had both doses in the early days, before they changed the timing.
They are using Pfizer and AstraZeneca here. Moderna has been approved but has not started to be administered yet

Caonabo is correct that being vaccinated does not preclude spreading CV19. With so many different vaccines in the mix, proof of being contagious will not be easy to determine with testing prior to travel for infection. Proof of vaccination makes sense for cruise ship liability, but not for airline liability.

BUT, they probably will require vaccinations for flying. Just to be "safe". But will they also require testing just before flying as well?
We should know at about the end of 2021.

In the past you trusted China for your new tires on the Korean car.
How did those tires work out for ya.

Vaccination precluding spreading is a technical issue.

What the vaccine does without question is near 100% guarantee you will not get seriously ill or hospitalized.
I like that part just fine.

The only part of this posting that is correct, is in regards to the Chinese tires.
"Vaccination precluding spreading is a technical issue." ????????????? :oops:
Yes, those technicalities we endure in life.
Precious indeed.

Tires are good. Vaccines with 50% efficacy that just barely pass muster? Not so good.
I buy a LOT of stuff made in China. Which is not the point of the Chinese deception and lack of producing a good vaccine.
But some people like to present illogical arguments, like you did.

Seeing various discussions about people in the UK refusing to accept the AstraZeneca vaccination because it underperforms.
The Chinese vaccine severely underperforms compared to others. The DR has positioned itself perfectly:

SINCE NOBODY ELSE WILL WANT EITHER OF THOSE VACCINES, THE DR SHOULD SOON GET MORE THAN IS NEEDED OF THEM.

Was part of getting rid of Pultarco Arias because he ordered those underperforming vaccine versions?
