Mary Lou and the Covid 19 Vaccine

When the government announced that they had purchased 3 million doses of the vaccine Mary Lou suggested that some of these vaccines be sent up to the 6 counties thus depriving the people of the republic including SF supporters of the benefit of the vaccine.
 
It is the responsibility of British government and stormont assembly
to source the vaccine for people in the six counties, If we had a surplus then
id have no bother sending some up,

SF have no problem accepting handouts from London this shouldn't be any different in this case.
 
When the vaccine is allocated to the north just wait and see the bitter
battle between parties up there as to who gets priority ,

Wonder what the criteria will be to distribute the 3M vaccines amongst the 5M populace down here.


Is this the Pfizer vaccine?

I'd say you'll be hard-pressed to get it delivered to people, the storage requirements for it are really complex, it needs to be kept at -80c, you need specialise refrigeration units on an unprecedented scale, you need dry ice on an unprecedented scale, the pressurised jars need a special kind of sand, and you need to manufacture the stuff itself.

It might just be easier to administer to people in the more urban areas first and cover those at high risk, etc, or give it to working aged people first, and get them back into the workplace.

Yeah, I think it's the one that requires -80C. Urbane urban dwellers certainly more deserving than yer yerrahs from kirry ;-)

Probably 4m - I'd say 20% or so will refuse to take it.
WHO have issued guidelines re rollout of vaccine - frontline healthcare workers and those with underlying conditions first, then essential workers followed by general roll out from older to youngest.

School vaccination programs will be last on the list with only immuno-compromised kids getting vaccine earlier in the cycle.
