Expert explains why medics and the elderly are vaccination priorities

Thailand’s well known virologist, Dr. Yong Poovorawan, has explained why Thailand must prioritize COVID-19 inoculation of medical personnel and senior citizens.

 

Dr. Yong, posting on his Facebook page, said the studies have shown that the COVID-19 vaccines are able to prevent severe symptoms and, therefore, reduce fatalities but, in the short term, will not be able to provide sufficiently widespread immunity that will help contain the outbreak.

 

He says he believes that inoculating the working age-group, who are usually symptomatic or suffer mild symptoms, will not help to contain the spread of the virus. They are still able to infect others.

Are there any vaccines developed for Covid that will supposedly provide the recipient with immunity?  Not thinking there are, however Moderna claims its Covid-19 vaccine provides one years worth of immunity.  Hard to believe, if the trials have not covered that period if time yet.

Can tell you that there is a lot of "hot air" re vaccination in Europe. Shortage of vaccine.

In Europe there is a shortage of vaccine, when the EU has to order for 27 other countries, after it has been approved for use in all those countries.

The UK was smart with Brexit with this, as just the UK to order for and get approval for.

 

The main problem is that people believe that after the first injection they are not vunerable, and even before vaccinating they are not tested, if they tested before and educated people about what to do after the first vaccination then there would be not so many deaths that people are harking on about after a vaccination.

 

Correct way forward would be those in the health system (Nurses, doctors etc) then the older generation, who would be expected to live for another couple of years, then start with the next stage. In the UK they are hoping to have vaccinated everyone over 18 by the end of June.
