    Ooh now we getting interesting. If the AZ vaccine may be marginally less effective, BUT you may be able to get it earlier, would you wait? Only @Buster knows.

    AstraZeneca to be offered to adults under 64
    Alberta will soon begin using the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine, the minister said, and plans to offer the first 58,500 doses of that vaccine only to healthy adults aged 64 and under starting on March 10.

    "These Albertans will have a choice," Shandro said. "They can book an appointment now for the AstraZeneca or they can wait to receive the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine when Phase 2D begins in early May.

    If we could get a few million of those J&j relatively quick, end of June or maybe even earlier is starting to look really realistic to have all adults vaxxed.

    Normal Summer is looking a lot more hopeful now

    Hah, let's see how the rollout logistics can be handled now. Hope we don't fuck it up too bad.

    What's the advantage of taking a less effective vaccine if you're not a high risk demographic? Wouldn't it make sense to have the "best" one if you're going to get one? Dumb it down for me like Suntan does with the macroeconomics.

    Has AHS released anything on their AZ dosing schedule? My understanding is that efficacy climbs with either a longer interval between doses or a lower initial dose followed by a standard second.

    you can't compare some of the simple efficacy figures that are being thrown around in the media. They aren't really appropriate to use in a head to head way.

    This doesn't make me feel scared, are you sure you're doing it right?

    What “effective” means isn’t exactly universal. It can depend on who and what you’re looking at being effective. So you can have a vaccine that is only 60% effective in preventing people from getting Covid, but 100% (or 99.9%) effective in reducing the severity and hospitalization in a population age range, and 80% effective in reducing spread. So if you’re a low-risk individual, a “lesser” vaccine helps reduce the spread and virtually eliminate your own risk, which is good.

    Getting the vaccines as they become available speeds up the rate of vaccination which helps us get to herd immunity faster. High risk groups getting the best vaccine and lower risk groups getting a vaccine that’s ‘good enough’ for them in 4 months is better than everybody getting the best vaccine in 6 or 8 months.

    We focus on the efficacy in preventing getting the disease, but if you’re a low risk demographic that isn’t as big a concern. Reducing the chance you get it, significantly/completely reducing the severity of the symptoms you get, and also reducing your chance of spreading it to somebody else is harder to quantify with a single efficacy percentage. So if you’re low risk, any of the vaccines are effective.

    That's a great dumbing down, thank you.

    Any data on which is best against up and coming variants? I know the RNA ones are supposed to be IF you get the second dose on schedule, but are the non-RNA better if you only get a single shot?

    I think the idea is get you damn shot now and worry about the 4 major variants later. We just don't want to deal with 16 variants by summer if this thing keep spreading back and forth.

    Efficacy is hard to compare because the trials were all done differently and in different areas. For example AZ and J&J vaccines say they are slightly less effective against the variants, particularly the south african variant but that doesn't mean the mRNA ones are necessarily better against those variants, much of their trial data was before those variants were more common in the wild. So could just be less out there so less people ever got exposed to them.

    That being said, I have faith in technology advancements so I'd rather take a mRNA one strictly for the sake of it being newer (and hopefully better).

    Not a huge concern. Literally ANY of the current vaccine makers can simply print a new vaccine (ie booster), which has identical code to any variant that is potentially harmful. The media (and frankly the policy makers) is still overplaying the variant angle, though.
