Well yes I think its interesting to know. Also I wasn’t sure that as a non resident you could get coverage here. Or is it international plans like Bupa.
Not sure about Bupa.
American friend of mine lives here
has Humano. He's under 30.
Doesn't have residency.
The shot from what I understand is two doses.
Perhaps they DR will over it to everyone.

For those with eyes to see:

Pfizer CEO
Albert Bourla sold shares worth more than triple his base salary on the same day his company announced the vaccine, hours after proclaiming that excellent results from the pharmaceutical company's COVID-19 vaccine in a late-stage trial made it a "great day for science and humanity."

Gee, I wonder why he did that? Perhaps he knows something we don't? In any case, hardly a vote of confidence for the new vaccine, I tell you guys, 2020 is getting weirder and weirder...

The sale was announced way back........

Did they wait to announce the vaccine so that he could make big bucks ? Probably.

Did he sell because of the announcement? No.

Not a freaking chance in hell...They have no idea of side effects and long term consequences of the shot, your immune system is over 99% effective against covid, I'd bet on that.

maybe your is but we already know that not everyone's immune system is up to the task. On an individual level that is a 100% failure rate if you don't survive or suffer any of the other long term side effects attributed to this disease in some patients.

Agree 100%. Those with a compromised immune system should take precautions.

Let everyone with compromised immune systems and pre existing conditions take the vaccine.

The rest of the population should absolutely not be required to take it for any reason whatsoever.
If it ever becomes mandatory for travel, that's when you'll know there's something rotten behind this plan.

Just ask yourself why did they have to rush a vaccine in record time for a disease that has literally a 98% survival rate. Rushing in with billions and billions and working overtime only to save 2% of the ill? Nah. I don't buy that.

The people who think you are stupid enough to fall for their BS stats ..
It is still amazing to me how most people cant grasp the most simple STATS..
I posted a simple example a while ago.
Even before Covid . for every 100 Friends you have on Facebook. 1 person at least will die , each and every year .
When its your turn, you will be that person, and your friends will mourn..
This is Life .
Not many people live to be 100. so its a mathematical certainty .
So Covid is =to Running the TIME CLock a full year .. period .
in effect you aged one year ..IF you got Covid .

A REAL DISEASE gives you much much worse ODDS , like 90 % survival rare ( which is kind of good ) ... or like 30 %,, which would be BAD..

A real Plague ,, kills like 50% + dead ... a flip of the Coin .. thats a Real KILLER ,,, but that is IF you get it ..

Now factor in all the fake stats of people who died with Covid , not from it ..

I like you fear a lot of things more than Covid-19. So these people behind it. What do you think is their plan for the DR ?

I wanted to provide this info and link to DR residents who are on the fence about taking the vaccine:

Patricia was involved in a C0VID-19 vacclne study recently and has had a severe adverse reaction. She has not been able to walk or go to work for almost 3 weeks now because of huge bleeding sores on her feet. These sores are called a Fixed Drug Eruption for those who may want to dig a little deeper into how this comes about..
She’s been to the emergency room and has seen multiple specialists for this issue and has already lost a significant amount of money due to missing work and paying out of pocket what insurance will not cover. Through the pandemic she has already struggled with making ends meet, as I am sure many of us can understand and relate to in these trying times. The pharmaceutical company which administered this vaccine will not reimburse her for lost wages as of now and with her position at work if she is not there she does not get paid. It is a lose, lose financially.

Here is a link to the gofundme along with some pretty graphic photos (please be aware, they are quite disturbing):

So, is Patricia in the DR? Did she accept the vaccine made available in the DR? Do you remember the title of this thread?

And you wonder why I delete things.

No idea on that yet since any discussion is currently speculative.

AstraZeneca is expected to sell the Oxford drug to certain European governments for only $3 to $4 per dose, according to SVB Leerink analyst Geoffrey Porges. AstraZeneca inked a $1.2 billion deal... Cost is apparently not very high for the vaccine the DR signed up for.
Great if true.
Title of article is "Heres how much Coronavirus vaccines "MIGHT" cost.

Everyone "honestly" involved in CV19 trials is completely covered for any even remotely related side effect.
This is an outright money scam from a fraudster.
How much money did you send her?

Up to, and including death?
Well, that's definitely reassuring.
I'll take my chances with the Chinese Virus.
At least I know what my survival chances are with that.

Correct. If one read the entire news article they would discovered that the date of execution was set back in Aug. He had no rights to sell earlier and besides he still retains millions of shares

Its a novel virus and no one is immune, not even the new guy.
Confusing wildly different degrees of infection with immunity.
Doctors have no idea why a small percent die, some have no symptoms but spread it and some are near death for a long time but recover eventually and then there are those that suffer long term effects.
The trials showed no deaths, no serious side effect and there is no reason medically to expect any serious long term issues.
People may be suspicious, may be anti vaxxers but no scientific reason to believe the vaccines will cause problems.

Never been a vaccine for any Corona virus because it was never needed as Corona virus infections in the past were only mild upper respiratory illness. This one is different.
Only a small percent die from the virus but lots are so ill they feel like they are dying.
A serious case is like slowly drowning and is agonizing.

Long term poster here had it and recovered.
Ask Playcaribe what it felt like if you want to know.
As I recall he is looking forward to the vaccine.
You get this disease once and are lucky enough to fully recover you will not want it again.
There will always be those that cannot learn from the experiences of others.

I suppose it is true that the vast amount of people who are asymptomatic are still not immune.

Since this vaccine is the first for corona viruses, nobody can guess at the long term effects from the disease or the vaccine.

About 0.5% of those infected die. I have no stats on how many are seriously ill or have long term effects.

I suspect more than one poster here had it and recovered. Far more that had it and had no idea.

I just got a message from a friend that was tested and he had it and had no idea he was infected.

I do know that in order for shutdowns and restrictions to stop, there will have to be the appearance that enough people are immune.
A herd immunity plateau will have to be reached.
Could be a while. Experts say maybe as early as next winter. My guess it Q2 2022.
