Kind of sad to see the US killing us on the vaccine response.

Huge F to Ontario thus far on the rollout. Incompetence at every turn. Case in point, Public Health randomly emailed everybody today informing them that Southlake Hospital in Newmarket will be cancelling all future vaccination appointments to doctors and staff who had their first vaccine there but do not live in their catchment area. Nobody has any answers of where they now need to go for their first or second shots as "they don't have those answers as of yet".

Embarrassing stuff.

It would probably take less than a month for them to produce enough vaccines for the rest of Canada. That's the frustrating part.. We don't need many doses!

Not to mention, this timeline doesn't seem to include Novavax, which is likely to be approved by early May. They are supposed to have 110 million doses for the US by the end of June (enough for 55 million folks). Share with your northern neighbor, Joey B. Well I guess you can share with Mexico too.

A highly transmissible COVID-19 variant that emerged in Brazil and has now been found in at least 20 countries can reinfect people who previously recovered from the disease, scientists said on Tuesday.

In a study of the mutant virus’s emergence and its spread in the Amazon jungle city of Manaus, the scientists said the variant – known as P.1 – has a “unique constellation of mutations” and had very rapidly become the dominant variant circulating there.

There's another variant in NY with the same immunity escaping property as well. They don't appear to be more transmissible but there will be a small drop in efficacy for the vaccines. The Oxford one likely won't be great at all though, but that's on minimal data. The other vaccines will probably do just fine in preventing severe cases + we already knew we needed a booster for the SA/Brazilian/NY variant. They're all the same in terms of how they escape immunity.
