Ah, that doesn’t sound good.

Why? Im sure the most vulnerable will be given it first and then everyone else. Once the most vulnerable are taken care of we can move on to normality. Not everyone will "need" the vaccine though everyone at some point should get it.

Not bad actually.

CDC says U.S. should have enough coronavirus vaccine to return to ‘regular life’ by third quarter of 2021

CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield told a Senate panel he expects vaccinations to begin in November or December, but in limited quantities with those most in need getting the first doses, such as health-care workers.

“If you’re asking me when is it going to be generally available to the American public so we can begin to take advantage of vaccine to get back to our regular life, I think we’re probably looking at third ... late second quarter, third quarter 2021,” he told the U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies.

No one knows exactly when the vaccine will be available to everyone. But I am certain that for the first time in our history public and private companies are working at unpeasidented speed to make a safe and effective vacine.
That’s good. If it was Presidented speed, it would be rushed into use before the election.

This not or should not be a political issue. Politicians are mainly lawyers who know little or nothing about
the very difficult medical issues. Hopefully we will learn from our mistakes and be better prepared for the next
even more dangerous virus that is out there even as I write.

WHO warns of 'very serious situation' in Europe, with 'alarming rates' of virus transmission
https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/17/europe/coronavirus-europe-who-second-wave-intl/index.html

But WHO regional director Hans Kluge said at a Thursday news conference that the increase in cases should serve as a warning of what is to come.

"Weekly cases have now exceeded those reported when the pandemic first peaked in Europe in March," Kluge said. "Last week, the region's weekly tally exceeded 300,000 patients."

"This pandemic has taken so much from us," Kluge said, citing the nearly 4.9 million recorded Covid-19 cases in Europe and more than 226,000 deaths. "And this tells only part of the story," he said. "The impact on our mental health, economies, livelihoods and society has been monumental."

Just a little FYI, Oklahoma ranked #3 least restrictive in terms of Coronavirus mandates. South Dakota is #1 least restrictive. Hawaii is #50 followed by California at #49, or most restrictive followed by 2nd most restrictive. Kind of interesting.

Good to see active cases going down @BOOMER. Thanks for the update.
