The Covid-19 vaccine rollout has been sluggish. Here's how we can speed it up
This is a good read on where we are, and ways it can be better. Their solutions are common sense ones like -- vaccinate on the weekend, open up earlier, stay later, hire more workers, incentivize healthcare workers to get vaccinated, open up age groups if some seniors are reluctant.
And just in general that they started this process during the holidays and that might be partially responsible for the initial slow roll out. That and its a novel task that you would expect them to get better at as the weeks and months roll on.
All that said I don't expect to be able to get a vaccine anytime soon. My guess is a few months from now at best. But I really don't know. I know that they are now doing about a half million vaccines a day, and that the vaccines require at least 2 doses. So most idealistically that's 250k people a day x let's say 5 days a week.. that's 1.25 million a week. If you are younger and relatively healthy, imagine you will be in the lowest priority group. In a country of 330mil, that's a lot of weeks to wait.
Let's hope they ramp up production.
