    The vaccine is a clear liquid so likely just saline solution like the yearly flu shots I get. /s You can do all the trials you want but until (if) the entire population gets poked no one knows the effectiveness. It won't matter anyway when the right strain comes out that's vaccine resistant, spreads easier and is XX% deadlier to seniors.

    I'm taking bets on wave 4 and a variant from the African continent until real panic ensues.

    You shouldn't make business decisions (including when to make major announcements) based on when a single executive planned stock sales. That's literally the whole point of the law.

    What if the CFO or other execs/Board members also had stock sales scheduled? Do you think every manager at Pfizer has calendar reminders on when scheduled stock sales are happening and that they should consider optics of announcing anything around stock sales? That's a great way to build a fucked up culture at your company.
    No, the CEOs stock sales - as well as the boards, are all known by the upper level planning departments. And as for not building up fucked up corporate cultures - thats pretty much lesson 101 in working for many major corporations - who can we fuck over without having legal get mad at us? Have worked in several corporations like that.

    No, that's just the reality unfortunately. I've worked in amazing corps and some truly awful ones too.

    I've purposefully been avoiding posting or reading in any of the Covid or politics threads but night shift suckered me in. Can someone tell me if this guy is serious or if he's just trolling and acting like the collective Karen and Kyle conspiracy theorists? This is wild.

    Has anyone's company announced that they are looking to buy vaccines for their staff? There was speculation that ours was (large multinational) but they announced today they would not be looking to do this saying that it would be unfair to society to skip the line and instead donated some money to the COVAX initiative.

    Was kinda hoping they could pull something off, but totally makes sense they took the woke optics route especially being an already-vilified O&G company.
    Our company looked into it (Global Petrochem). There is agreements between the manufacturers and the government that prohibit private sales until the government gets what they need. We do have our own tests though incase one of our sites gets an outbreak and we have to test before entry to one of our sites.

    Yeah i always thought it was a stretch for it to happen, but the fact that our executive team had to put out a message saying they weren't means the rumour mill was active up to our global management levels.

    They did say though that energy staff were considered "critical workers" in many countries, so maybe at least field/operations staff could be prioritized before general public in some places.

    Also means you can travel for work pretty easily. I know an energy executive that's been back and forth to the USA every couple of weeks all of 2020 without issue, and weirdly, no quarantine when he gets back . . . Not sure if that's how that's supposed to work or not, so i won't mention the company.

    Who is exempt from quarantine
    You may be exempt from the mandatory quarantine requirements under certain conditions, including if you:

    -provide essential services
    -maintain the flow of essential goods or people
    -are receiving medical care within 36 hours of entering Canada (non-related to COVID-19)
    -regularly cross the border to work
    -live in an integrated trans-border community

    Although your reason for entering Canada may fall under an exemption, you may still have to follow certain provincial and territorial restrictions (which may include quarantine), depending on your destination. Being exempt from quarantine does not mean you’re exempt from the pre-boarding test requirements.
    They must meet one of the criteria.

    I guess it's the "essential service" criteria. Energy workers are essential in both countries.

    It took Weber and his team about 45 minutes to administer the six vaccine doses.

    “We went through a lot of cars before we found six yeses,” Weber said.

    Export controls are now in place, Canada is not listed in the exemption. Can't wait to see Trudeau standing in front of a camera later today to tell us how this isn't an issue and all those deferred Pfizer doses will still be here on time.

    I'm not sure what kind of contract talk/language could have side stepped this?

    The answer has always been throwing billions away to have the ability on our own soil. But nobody like money losing businesses, especially ran by government.
