US is sitting on 15 million doses of AstraZeneca that won't get used by the US. I'm guessing it will be given to another country but I wonder if there is concern about "giving" a secondary shit vaccine to a poor country and not the good shit.I don't get which one relates to which harry Potter house.
But as it stands in Aus. At the moment older folks 50+ are getting Astra Zeneca. My old man got his first one Tuesday just gone.
For 50 and younger looks like we are getting Pfizer. Seems like a good thing because form what I've heard and read, Pfizer and Modena are the top performing vaccines. But Aus Government put a lot of their eggs in the AZ basket. Shifting a lot of us to Pfizer is slowing things down tremendously.
There is actually a big new debate starting here that AZ vaccine isn't good enough and doesn't perform well enough against variants. So Aus is going to have to find a new way to herd immunity.
