Doctors and nurses want more data before championing vaccines to end the pandemic

  Doctors and nurses want more data before championing vaccines to end the pandemic Health-care leaders say they are finding unexpected wariness among medical workers about taking the novel vaccines, based on concerns about President Trump’s politicization of the government’s reviews, their rapid development under Operation Warp Speed, and a lack of information about longer-term safety and effectiveness. Large health systems, medical societies and the federal government are launching an effort to persuade front-line health care providers to take novel vaccines that were developed, and are likely to be granted emergency approval, in record time.

The impact of a new Covid vaccine will kick in significantly over summer and life should be back to normal by next winter, one of its creators has said. Prof Ugur Sahin, BioNTech co-founder, also raised hopes the jab could halve transmission of the virus, resulting in a "dramatic reduction in cases".

LONDON (Reuters) - People who refuse a vaccine for COVID-19 could find normal life curtailed as restaurants, bars, cinemas and sports venues could block entry to those who don't have proof they are inoculated, Britain's new vaccine minister said on Monday.

Several major COVID-19 vaccines have been announced in recent weeks, raising hopes that the world could soon return to some semblance of normality after the coronavirus killed 1.46 million people and wiped out a chunk of the global economy.

Vaccines Won't Stop the Pandemic Unless at Least 50 Million Skeptical Americans Change Their Minds

  Vaccines Won't Stop the Pandemic Unless at Least 50 Million Skeptical Americans Change Their Minds More than four in 10 Americans say they won't get the COVID vaccine when it becomes available. Big problem: Even a highly effective vaccine won't do much to rein in the pandemic if enough people can't be persuaded to get the shot.It would be hard to exaggerate the degree to which experts have been surprised, and relieved, by these preliminary results. Early in the pandemic, conventional wisdom held that the best we could hope for was a slightly better hit rate than seasonal influenza vaccines, which in a good year protect 50 to 60 percent of those inoculated; the Food and Drug Administration set the target for COVID vaccines at a modest 50 percent.

Vaccine sorcery is underway folks, and you if don’t learn how to read vaccine literature right now, you are in for a rude awakening. Let’s face it, there’s a lot we don’t understand about novel Covid - 19 which is why a vaccine will NOT work. This virus is using the whole human body as a host to spread.

Vaccines save millions of lives each year. Vaccines work by training and preparing the body’s natural defences --- the immune system--- to recognize and There are now vaccines to prevent more than 20 life -threatening diseases, and work is ongoing at unprecedented speed to also make COVID - 19 a

The British minister responsible for the vaccine rollout, Nadhim Zahawi, said getting vaccinated should be voluntary but that Google, Facebook and Twitter should do more to fact-check opposing views of vaccines.

Asked by the BBC if there would be an immunity passport, Zahawi said a person's COVID-19 vaccine status might be included in a phone app that would inform local doctors of a person's status.

"But also I think you'd probably find that restaurants and bars and cinemas and other venues, sports venues, will probably also use that system as they've done with the app," Zahawi told the BBC.

"The sort of pressure will come both ways: from service providers - who will say 'look, demonstrate to us that you have been vaccinated' - but also we will make the technology as easy and accessible as possible."

The vaccine is a "significant step" forward for getting life back to normal , but challenges remain.

Health authorities in many countries have become increasingly concerned in recent years by the growth of anti-vaccine groups, which are especially active on social media.

Asked if it would become virtually impossible to do anything without the vaccine, Zahawi said: "I think people have to make a decision but I think you'll probably find many service providers will want to engage in this in the way they did with the app."

Zahawi declined to give any specific date on a vaccine rollout as none have yet been approved for public use.

The message, he said, should be that a vaccine is good for the community and the country.
