Should the public have full access to vaccine distribution information?


Recommended Posts

As an aside, in my city it's kind of interesting. Some neighborhoods have very careful traffic planning, many generous measures, all-way stops, speed bumps and limits of 30 km / hr. And in some others, there's none. No measures and no limits, literally. All, nice and careful planning, and nada planning is paid from the same city budget financed by our property taxes.

Back to vaccines, obviously they are paid by the public too. And they can be considered somewhat more critical resource, than traffic control important as it is. So should public be able to see in real time what vaccines are distributed to the population, where and how?

I'm asking this for two reasons: first, in my understanding of a responsible and transparent democratic government this would be done immediately and at the same time with the beginning of the distribution (remember, "training" from September of last year?) as an absolutely necessary condition of transparency that doesn't even need to be discussed. And in the reality, it appears to be about the last item on at least some administration's agenda, not even discussed.

And secondly, we have seen already the reports of CEO and members of the board with the family receiving compassionate doses. Should we, the public have the right not just to know (eventually) but to see and immediately, what happens to our critical public resource?

That is, if we are still a democracy. If anybody still cares about questions and answers.

Do you mean 'open and transparent government' ? We already have that . . . 

It is for sure that we will never see transparency in Canada anytime soon from comrade Trudeau who keeps trying to push the Covid vaccine on the fools who will take this Covid vaccine. Just saying. 

Those voices that I am hearing are voices of smart and intelligent people who dare to ask questions and challenge anything that the government tries to sell and throw at them as the gospel truth. Are

Hurray, hurray and hurray, in it together again and now there's more of the vaccine! Wait, not so fast please, which "vaccine"? There's vaccine and vaccine, for example one vaccine is 95% effective and the other - 62, both purchased for public money and which one did you mean?

Suppose in a city we get 10 batches of the first vaccine and 25 of the other. So which postal codes and "local facilities" will get which? Do we know? Can we know? Do we have the right to know?

And if we cannot know that, then how do we know that we're still a democracy?

BC has already decided. Now that LTC homes and their workers are done it will be done on an age basis starting on March 8 with those over eighty and other highly vulnerable first, then working down in five year increments. The AZ vaccine will initially be offered to first responders, teachers etc out of their age bracket if they want to be done right away or they can wait until they are eligible for the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

The AZ vaccine trials showed it 62% effective against symptoms. Real world use has shown it to be over 90% effective in preventing hospitalizations and 100% effective against deaths. Most of the people vaccinated in the UK have had the AZ vaccine.

Kudos to BC for at least looking at this question. It is all fine and great but first, the public has the right to know and more importantly, any responsible democratic government imv has to and would make such a policy clear and transparent to the public upfront, before distribution has begun.

Why do you think they won't. BC just announced this today and they were very clear that it all depends on how much of each vaccine we get and when. No one's plan can be cast in stone

I would prefer that the public first try and find out as to what are all the ingredients in this Covid vaccine that they are all trying to eagerly inject into their bodies. I heard that some of the junk in the vaccine may do more harm than good to their bodies. And I also heard that some people that took the vaccine had very serious reactions and complications some taken the vaccine and some have even died from the vaccine. Transparency is what we need here and not just more brainwashing of trying to get us to all take this Covid vaccine and that it is supposed to be safe. I will not be taken any vaccine. Just call me a radical anti-vaxxer rebel. Works for me. ;)

You should get some help with those voices you are hearing. Do you actually research them or just swallow everything you want to believe?

Are you still one of those fools that still believe your Canadian politicians and the Canadian media? Have you not learned by now that those two misfits have become real and true professional bull chitters in Canada by now. Everything that those two misfits I mentioned above has to say about this con job Covid virus is all bull chit.

For your information there have been many doctors and scientists that have already said that this China virus is no more serious than any other viruses that have come along over the centuries. Are you going to challenge and question their opinions and points of view? 

So tell me, have you done your own personal research on this China virus, oh mouthy one? What proof do you have from your own personal research that can make me believe that this China virus is all for real? Come on, doctor, give me something will you? If you think that you know it all about this China virus then it should not be a big problem for you, right? 

Maybe it is you that has never done any actual research on this China virus and you are just too willing to swallow everything that you want to believe and hear from your snake oil politicians, doctors and those so called health officials that you believe and enjoy listening too? Maybe you are the one that needs immediate help. Just saying. ;)

Because I try to read essential news and there's been nothing on this subject in my city and the province since vaccination began some time back. And I would much prefer to have a complete clarity on the matter, with the capacity to see it myself before any such program started (and that is already not the case).

Yet you can't provide links or sources for any of them.

The BC plan was outlined a few weeks ago. Today there was the big announcement giving details.

Why would or should I? I know that you will call any of those link sources just more conspiracy nonsense link sources. I have tried to do so with others here in the past by providing links and either I was told that they were not credible enough for their liking or they were just a bunch of conspiracy white supremacist links. This is not my first rodeo dealing with people like you. Anyway, my links are a lot more truthful to believe than your links. Chuckle-chuckle.

Oh, whoopee-de-thrill. Another big BC useless plan announcement brought to us all by our dear BC elected officials. I am just so excited and I cannot wait to hear or read all about it. ;)

You won't be able to read it through the tin foil.

Now you see why I will not be providing any links. Personally, I think that your halo on your head is way too tight. You are unable to properly think anymore. All you can say is "tin foil". You need to slacken up that halo on your leftist liberal head. Just some friendly advice. :D

Btw it is worth noting that obscurity and confusion can be in the root of mistrust breeding these theories. General public may not have those degrees but when a roomful of so-called experts nods in wonderful consensus to quite obviously nonsensical "policy" of the day, even a high-school graduate could tell that something isn't right. The problem is, the public bureaucracy long forgot how to speak with meaning and act effectively. Just plop something out and hope that it'd work somehow, even by sheer luck. Like "travel from Wuhan? not a problem!". And that surely goes a long way to explaining the difference between 26, New Zealand and 23 thousand, Canada.

Brand new virus. Why did people expect 100% knowledge on day one? Some scepticism of political motives is not unhealthy, rejecting science is.
