When will vaccination ramp up in the EU? I had heard there was a delay with the upgrading of the Pfizer plant, but it seems the vaccine supply has not ramped up yet. Is this still coming?
There's another form of vaccine hesitancy among people who say they're not going to get vaccinated unless it means they no longer have to mask, distance, etc. because otherwise what's the point. Shockingly, I have several friends / relatives in this camp - adamant that they will not get vaccinated unless vaccination results in clear and immediate easing of restrictions.
I've told my friends that they're being silly. Easing of restrictions is (or should be) tied to the percent of population vaccinated, so each "jab" contributes to the benefit they want, even if it's not immediate. Plus, selfishly, sooner or later, vaccination will be required for something that they want to do. Why go through the process of needing to get vaccinated in a hurry if they can get vaccinated now and be set? But if they really don't want to get the "jab," I'll happily take their spot.
Well I would be happy with July at this point. It sounds like Pfizer is back on track delivering to Canada. I think it is every three weeks they are doing a delivery.NB revised their vaccine rollout plan. Depending on deliveries, healthy people under 70 seem to have to wait until July or later. Meanwhile they plan to do school staff and students aged 16-24 in June. (number of deaths in the 0-19 age group in Canada = 4; in the 20-29 group = 30. Number of deaths in the 60-69 group = 1586)
I'm sure this plan will get adjusted as time passes....

“Fill a jar,” she explained. “Nine raisins a day after it sits for nine days.”
That’s a thought, but we are already anticipating a ”breaking stay at home” celebration, so any delay is annoying. Kinda like the build up for Montreal!Yay!
I think it’s better to be on different schedules.
That way if one has bad side effects, there is always the other one to help.
Congratulations on the vaccination!My husband got his first Pfizer dose last night. He has type 1 diabetes and has been so worried all year, getting tested every time he feels a little "off." Big weight off his shoulders.
We cancelled a big trip last summer to Europe. Re-scheduled to this summer but that is on the verge of being cancelled. I am waiting until Easter just to make sure it is toast, as it's all refundable anyway. It looks like the Portland teachers union will be cancelling school for ALL of 2021, so we may be able to go in the fall if the kids are just dialing in to class anyway. (I am so sad about what is going on in my city, it just feels lost to me anymore.) At any rate, my oldest has his Bar Mitzvah August 21 so hopefully we are allowed to have a little party with people we aren't related to by then.
