"This is going to explode." A next wave of #Covid vaccines will soon be put into use, vaxes that will be both far easier to use & somewhat less protective than the first two. The messaging about these vaccines is going to be a huge challenge, experts fear. statnews.com/2021/02/17/the…

Yesterday we published a piece on the dangers of the emerging narrative of good & less-good vaccines. statnews.com/2021/02/17/the… It is really becoming a thing, as this WSJ story on HCWs in Europe refusing the AZ vax illustrates. Nothing good this way lies. wsj.com/articles/these…

Some Covid-19 vaccines are perceived as "good," and others "bad." That, experts say, is a problem. buff.ly/3atbxTY

WHO Deputy Mike Ryan to his 80-year-old mum. “Whatever vaccine they show up with, you take it.” Please do not refuse an approved vaccine because an even better one might come along later. Having one vaccine now does not preclude having another later. statnews.com/2021/02/17/the…

“And while it would be great … to say, ‘Let’s use J&J in settings where it’s going to be most feasible and appropriate,’ once it’s thought of as the less well-performing vaccine, then it’s like ‘Great, send the [expletive] vaccine to the poor people.’” statnews.com/2021/02/17/the…
