Should Ontario follow Quebec and adopt a one-dose Covid-19 vaccination policy for now?.


Recommended Posts

Yes. With slow vaccine roll out some provinces like Quebec has already adopted or provinces considering to adopt a one dose policy and Ontario should follow that policy too in order to save precious lives. It has been shown that a single dose of Pfizer vaccine would provide a very high efficacy of 80% maybe even 90% so why give the second dose to those already reasonably protected and provide a likely 10% higher efficacy while depriving millions of any protection at all and by doing so leaving millions others totally defenseless. Policy makers take note that the your right decision would save many thousands of lives while your wrong action would results in thousands of avoidable deaths.

THIS DOES NOT MAKR SENSE and the consequence will be thousands of unnecessary covid related deaths in Ontario and other provinces.

I think the answer is yes.  Vaccinating most people with one dose, and giving them 92% protection makes more sense than using the second does to bump it up to 94%.  High risk people could be given the second dose I guess.  But the majority of the population should just receive the one dose.  You could vaccinate the country a lot faster that way, and achieve great results.

I don't think it is a loaded question but a good question why decision makers in Ontario are making bad decisions likely causing harm and more deaths than needed. When one dose provides very close to two dose immunity as suggested by scientists then why give non-vital second dose and deprive others the vital first dose and deprive millions of slightest immunity?

Look at their stupid timetable for vaccinating elderly Ontarians!!!

80+ year olds - starting third week of March

75+ year olds - staring April 1st

70+ year olds - starting May 1st

65+ year olds - starting June 1st

60+ year olds - starting July first

They are doing worse than any other province. They have been saying that they were ready for mass vaccination for a long time attacking Federal government for slow rollout but they proved that they are much worse.

With warm weather just around the corner the fed up young population will restart socializing and will pass the virus to elders. Some won't listen to incompetent decision makers or governors anymore. How many elderly would  have to die till July till they realize their bad decision?

Even if they the Ford government had 20 million doses they could not get it done in time. I wish we could take this issue out of the hands of politicians and give it to the health care system lock stock and barrel.

I am truly tired of listening to Doug's stories day after day. I am even tired of our PM and his stories of how we are ramping up the vaccines.

Just my opinion!

News just in that British Columbia is going to follow Quebec and New Brunswick and for now follow the ONE dose policy (Second dose 4 months from first dose when plenty of vaccines will be available) when there is a shortage of vaccine to save lives as one shot for Pfizer and Moderna has been proven to be almost as effective as two.

Ontario politicians and decision makers where the hell do you stand on thsi? Don't play with people's lives with your stubbornness and bad decisions.

Alberta too is likely to follow BC, Quebec and New Brunswick.

Those in Ontario may pay a very high price (with their lives) though for electing incompetent stubborn politicians to government. No word yet from Ontario so based on their two dose policy it takes months to vaccinate the most venerable in Ontario.

It appears that Ontario too is coming down the wild horse eventually.

Christine Elliott also said the province is looking for guidance from the NACI on delaying the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by up to 16 weeks in an effort to dramatically expand the number of people receiving their initial inoculation, and suggested those recommendations will be the final key Ontario needs to unlock its plan.

“This could make a significant difference for Ontario in reducing hospitalizations and deaths,” Elliott told reporters at Queen’s Park. “As soon as we receive that [recommendation] we will be able to finalize the plan and get in front of you.”

They (Federal, provincial and health authorities) eventually do the right thing but always too damn late days on in case of border closures and wearing masks months after I posted and demanded it here!!!!!
