    Gotta get that daily vaccination number higher.


  2. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Jan 14, 21 @ 12:39 pm:

    Agreed, Stu.

    That vaccine rate means over 425 days to get the initial shot. Not exactly warp speed.

    =That vaccine rate means over 425 days to get the initial shot. Not exactly warp speed=

    Give it time - the current vaccines are getting shipped in volume. As of 1/12/21 “25 million doses of the Moderna and the Pfizer Inc.-BioNTech vaccines have been sent to 16,000 locations throughout the United States”. The J&J single-dose vaccine can be stored in a refrigerator and that one is hopefully only a month out. Keep up the masking and social distancing for just a few more months

    Businesses in some regions can move back to Tier 2 tomorrow (allegedly) and still the Restore Illinois website gives no guidance on what that means: https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/restore-illinois-mitigation-plan. You can sort of find Tier 2 if you look but it certainly isn’t clear what the rules will be. Glad we are moving into this territory but businesses need to be able to plan.

    There was a bit of bad news on the J&J vaccine (which I have high hopes for as well) - apparently they are pretty far behind in their production schedule. I hope Biden seriously considers invoking the Defense Production Act - I don’t know how quickly third party production of vaccines can be set up, but if they can I hope they do it.

    Tier 2 mitigations: https://www2.illinois.gov/IISNews/22253-Tier_2_COVID-19_Resurgence_Migitations.pdf


  8. - O-Man - Thursday, Jan 14, 21 @ 1:39 pm:

    As equally important to getting the vaccines shipped is the ability to have enough people available to distribute them. That is the other half of the equation.


  9. - Almost the weekend - Thursday, Jan 14, 21 @ 1:50 pm:

    Pritzker held back regions going to phase 3 because of concern of holiday outbreak. Once regions enter phase 3 all this data resets meaning regions can’t move to phase 4 until after 28 days of data. Phase 4 is where indoor dining and bars can open. Be interesting if he changes this and allows data to carry over. Restaurants and bars not being able to open until mid February or later could be the final punch.

    Fumble after fumble won’t win the game.

    Coach Biden has a new playbook…hopefully.


  11. - Downstate Guy - Thursday, Jan 14, 21 @ 2:13 pm:

    Stu, I know you can find Tier 2 if you look, but how hard would it be to put it on the Restore Illinois website where businesses and citizens are trained to look. And here is a challenge: You own a movie theater that had to close in Tier 3. Can you open?
