Old-First is probably not the optimal vaccination strategy if you ask me by the way.

I think there's more to be said for workers-first. Especially public-facing-workers-first.

Possibly children after that, so you can open the schools.

Old people aren't super-spreaders, in general are they?

You wanna vaccinate your super-spreaders I reckon.

@pre Dude, You are talking about boomers who are afraid of critter that only kills 3% of the people who got that. Who do you think gets the swab first? The fucking boomers of course.

@maxmustermann

It's not boomers who made the plan to vaccinate the vulnerable first though. At least in the UK. Johnson is more of a Gen-Xer and the planning committee are mostly not retired people.

3% chance of death is pretty scary if you ask me. A waking day's worth of hourly Russian roulette.

I wouldn't agree to it even for fuck-you money.

It's a full on catastrophe applied to everyone in a population and breaks a health-system if it's all at once. Broken health systems mean the death-rate goes up more.

Targeting the vulnerable makes first-order sense, but I think targeting the spreaders is second-order sensibler.

I also wouldn't be delaying second doses like our lot are though.
