Will 🧵 soon if interested.
(I go into detail on vaccines and trails & everything on upcoming #inthebubble).
People are getting it post-COVID & some will in a challenge trial. 4/
There will be multiple vaccines after the first expected in the Fall. Each likely progressively better. 5/
Frustration that some vaccine trials are moving too slowly & not sharing data other than in press releases. That’s something people can advocate for. 7/
Also viruses become less deadly over time and there is cross-immunity and other potential 10/
Safety and a 50% or greater chance of improvement. 12/
Yes, there will be a new normal. 14/
The answers landed on “I hope so.” But no promises. 15/
Hope that we are more like Asia where this becomes a norm, particularly when people are sick. 16/
Take it slowly. Masks and immunity and digital apps will help. But people will be taking risks.
Antibody therapies could make catching CV less deadly & therefore a more acceptable risk. 17/
Crappy. Horrible response in the US. Way too many unnecessary deaths. Fall will be awful. 18/
It’s an issue.
Likely. Will look at the data.
Would you take a vaccine?
Depends on the data.
Expect there to be data before approval?
Will you speak out no matter what?
No “life before vaccine” or “life after vaccine.” But gradual changes. 21/
I know the marathon is harder to run when you don’t know what mile you’re at. But if you count on & help others, I view it better as a relay race. /end
In this area, I’m not an expert. Just trying to give the benefit of my network.
