Well Pence isn't going to wait to get vaccinated, but anyways it's better to raise confidence now, when millions of people are vaccinated inevitably some will be dropping dead and many other maladies from unrelated causes.

Respecting? It's simply a marketing decision. The frum world, even if they don't have TV, will be aware it's happening if he waits until after Shabbos, and they'll be opposed to it if he did it before.

It's possible that he gives a flip about Shabbos, but it certainly is not evident from this decision.

His wording was "respecting." I find fault with that wording, as it probably has nothing to do with respect.

During his first stint as PM he very conspicuously walked relatively long distances between events on Shabbos and has done the same numerous times. I can't find it now but this included a walk to events in Washington where he said that even though he isn't personally observant it is different when he is representing the countryor something like that.

Since they're not involved in front-line medical care or nursing homes to the best of my knowledge, does that mean that local connections were able to get them moved up to the front of the line? If yes, that could also explain why they wouldn't want to draw public attention to it.

Former President Trump and former first lady Melania Trump were both vaccinated at the White House in January, a Trump adviser tells Axios.

Trump declared at CPAC on Sunday that "everybody" should get the coronavirus vaccine the first time he's encouraged his supporters, who have been more skeptical of getting vaccinated, to do so.

Its not that complicated. An influencer relies on trust to stay in business and misleading their followers is career suicide. So in theory they will do due diligence before influencing people because they have a lot to lose from a bad recommendation. Not so politicians, actors, and doctors, who may often stand to gain moreso by misleading their followers.

Trump says he recommends taking the COVID vaccine, urges supporters to get vaccinated.

"I would recommend it and I would recommend it to people who don't want to get it... But we have our freedoms and we have to live by that... It's a great vaccine."

I know this is a joke, but it's not branding, it's a 70 year old Belgian company owned by J&J who developed the vaccine. TIL that this company is (at least historically) full of by graduates of the Institute of Tropical Medicine. An organization put together by Leopold to protect his 'investment' in the Congo from disease, which outlasted his 'problematic' legacy to become a world leading organization in combating tropical diseases.

Stating the obvious: Politicians are getting behind JNJ because it's logistically simpler and likely to have higher supply/lower demand vs. the mRNA vaccines. They also have to reinforce that it's good enough despite the lower efficacy.

One more point- if we can reduce the loud anti-vax position to being mostly against mRNA (because their chief complaint is currently its a new unproven experimental technology) then it should be much easier to leave an opening for people on the fence to take the J&J vaccine (because its a good old regular vaccine).

Boris Johnson and AZN is more than that, there's strong sentiment in Europe (EU/EEA) against AZN, and the UK has been pushing it hard, so they have to shore it up. It's way more than just efficacy concerns.

Two things:

1) J&J is actually quite effective at preventing illness and is nearly 100% effective at preventing severe illness and death

2) I never really understood that train of thought, short of the shot being annoying and the danger of the flu not too great. Because something is not 100% effective is no less of a reason to take it, its all about risk reduction.

I believe Ive said this elsewhere: Someone told me they wont take the shot because its not 100% effective anyway. I told them they shouldnt go to work because theyll never be the richest man in the world anyway.

Your analogy isn't even close. I don't get flu shots. The only times I've ever gotten sick were when I got the shot. I don't feel like my risk is lessened by getting the shot. Same for J&J. I see no reason to introduce this disease into my body. Like most people who are somewhat leery of new tech, I will most likely eventually get one of the mRNA shots. Not liking new tech doesn't mean I'd rather settle for inferior solutions.

Many people are not concerned about themselves personally getting covid. So the only incentive to take the vaccine is to be allowed to travel, avoid quarantine requirements, end masking. The J&J is not widely accepted to fulfill these criteria.

But feelings dont matter, data does, and the data is clear that getting the flu vaccine lowers your risk of contracting the flu (by varying levels each year), anecdotal experience notwithstanding. Im not saying everyone has to take the flu shot, or that its fantastically efficient, but its laughable to say your risk isnt lessened.

You cannot contract COVID from getting the vaccine.

Like most people who are somewhat leery of new tech, I will most likely eventually get one of the mRNA shots. Not liking new tech doesn't mean I'd rather settle for inferior solutions.
As I have posted previously I agree that getting the mRNA shot is far better, and would probably have personally held out a bit longer for Pfizer/Moderna even if J&J would have been available to me a bit sooner.

It lowers the risk of contracting the flu, should you come in contact with it. For whatever reason, my lifestyle hasn't put me in a situation where I've had significant exposure to the flu for the last 10-15 years. BH people tend to stay home when they get it, for some weird reason.

Didn't say you could. I don't want to put that into my body if I can avoid it.

I understand what you were trying to illustrate. My point is that people like me are not looking for 100%. We understand lowering risk. We just don't like the J&J vax, and skepticism regarding mRNA as a new tech is keeping us from taking the plunge to lower risk immediately. That skepticism isn't a lifelong commitment. I'm not looking to be the richest man in the world; I'm just not willing to take a job I don't like if I don't absolutely have to. I'd rather wait for the right job, at the right time.

No reason is also obviously a false absolute, because lowering risk is at least a reason albeit perhaps an insufficient one for you.

When I saw a headline about Russell Wilson hosting a televised vaccination program, I was hoping this would be a well-thought-out and effective harnessing of celebrity power to reach out to minorities and the young who look up to him to get vaccinated as well.

Unfortunately, while I give him credit for trying, as I read the article about the programming including an interview with Fauci to dispel vaccine myths, an appearance by Biden, etc., I'm not sure how effective it will be at reaching its target audience.

I think they would have gotten a lot more bang for their buck rounding up some A-list athletes, musicians, and actors to talk about how important it is to get vaccinated and how safe it is, and then have them get dosed on camera.
