Have no idea.

More than 1% of the population?

20% depending on your definition of rural.
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half
Dow Jones Industrial Average Tops 40000 for the First Time

So rural that you can't get 1000 people vaccinated in 10 days.

You say that, but it's not like just because 20,000 (making up a number obviously) live in a particular providers 'coverage area' that means you can get an average of 100 people to come in each day. Add to that the fact that Moderna's Pfizer's (though Moderna's is also 2 doses) vaccine needs 2 doses, and the logistics start getting complicated for a smaller, rural healthcare place.

I think the amount of people impacted by this is so miniscule in the big picture, that's it's really irrelevant. Places which would have these issues would likely have a very low Rt, if they have even seen any infections at all. If you've vaccinated over 70% of the rest of the country, it becomes a total non-issue.

I only mentioned rural and the cold chain issue because someone mentioned last mile issues, and I assumed last mile is harder/more expensive in rural areas. The reality is that this particular vaccine has additional challenges related to the supply chain, that will adversely affect rural areas. That's why the CDC is apparently hoping to have one of the other vaccines online sooner than later to service those areas. Is it a huge barrier to getting control of the virus? I agree with you that it's not.

The entire world came to halt and more than a million people died. Are we now worrying about people who can't come to a city to get a shot?

Important stuff but Howard Roark won't like it.

Of course you will only hear those type of quotes from some professor somewhere.
