Was bound to happen at some point. A school in Surrey, BC has been ordered to close due to an outbreak. 7 people infected so far, school to remain closed at least until the end of November. One of the 7 is a music teacher who is in ICU.

More good news this morning. Thank you Mr Trump.

A US-developed vaccine has been shown to be 94.5% effective at protecting people from COVID-19, according to interim results.

Produced by Moderna, in collaboration with the US government's "Operation Warp Speed", the vaccine has also been shown to last for up to 30 days in household fridges and at room temperature for up to 12 hours.

It also remains stable at -20C, equal to most household or medical freezers, for up to six months.

Suggesting that by Spring there could be enough people treated to make a difference. Those who do get it after being inoculated seem to just a mild version.

Moderna hopes to produce between 500 million to 1 billion doses in 2021, but they can't produce beyond that in a year due to manufacturing constraints.

I wonder how good people will be with going back to get their 2nd dose?

Not enough for everybody to get one dose.

It's obviously going to be a multiple year process to vaccinate the world.

Also seems to be the question of how long will the vaccines provide protection for? Life, 1 year? 2 years?

Is there any way to know the length of protection in a vaccine only been tested for a few months?

IMHO - Anyone who hasn't had their normal childhood vaccinations (chickenpox, measles etc) should not be allowed the COVID jab until everything else is up to date.

Additionally, flat earthers should also be denied this vaccine.
