Some States Consider Who Are The Most Vulnerable In Vaccine Distribution? | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC


    1. Time for progressives in the House to withhold their votes for Speaker next month until PElosi agrees to hold a floor vote for Med4All

  1. I love that the Garden of the Gods is always proudly shown in the background. Homesick Colorado boy over here.

  2. One of the most vulnerable of populations would be Republicans, many of which never took it seriously, but would that fair to the rest of us who did?

    1. @Ginger Nightmare no there not there at the top haha some magic rule that says they have to be working no matter what entitles them to the vaccine look it up actually hilarious.

    1. Not bad at all, watching from Ireland ,
      Congratulations America democracy as poetry in motion…. I am loving it ….
      QED !

      And the Vaccine for your People after all you had to endure under that Political Fiend…. It is a Good Day

      Stay safe and take care still

  3. America is

    23 in education.
    25 in democracy index.
    34 in raising family index.
    37 in healthcare.
    No high-speed train.
    Highest number of homeless people.
    Highest number of incarcerated people.
    78% of people live paycheck to paycheck.

    Stock market is not economy of Americans! Where 90% of money belongs to top 10% of the population, it’s wallet for the rich.

    Let’s talk like adults, instead of name calling.

    I have left the proof on my playlist, if you would like to check!

    Let’s make our country better together… .

  4. Lucifer-ase, programmable nano technology,, DARPA hydrogel, immunity passport, and modified RNA. Versus getting a form of a common cold. Sure all looks normal until they turn it on and hook you into the system. Common sense says no thanks!

  5. In the UK we’ve worked it out already! Healthcare workers, all of em, then elderly and most vulnerable. Your lottery system… is insane. But you only have 100 million supply because of your president.

    1. SGinger Nightmare • The reporting I saw showed a 90 year old woman receive the first vaccine. An elderly man named William Shakespeare was the second. They don’t seem like health care workers to me.

    2. @Yvonne Tomenga That was a show piece for the Press! Elderly getting vaccinated. I know it is hard for low education in the US to comprehend the significance.

  6. Wow, we had this discussion a few weeks ago in Germany and still have no Biontech vaccine and YOU start thinking about now ?????

  7. To continue to want Trump to remain as President is to continue to want the virus death tolls and infections to rise, mass failures in every aspect of our economy to continue, ongoing economical demise of small businesses and ongoing world shame and disgrace  upon America under his leadership. Thank God Trump was NOT re-elected.

  8. I’m sorry but LOTTERY is B/S!!!! Get the people closest to the disease. The most likely to contract it or spread it. Medical personnel first. Yes, those closest to the patients but at the same time you have to decrease the contact of those who are not typically EXTREMELY close to them! Teachers. You want kids back in School? Vaccinate your teachers and your JANITORS that clean BEHIND them! Those in ‘Rescue’ operations! Our SENIORS, the most vulnerable. Strong, healthy people who are TYPICALLY less likely to contract or be hospitalized from the disease should be LAST! And that’s going to EXCLUDE YOUNG kids. Vaccinate AROUND them! Persons who ‘clean behind people’ without benefit of proper PPI. Food Service workers who are still feeding us, especially our Grocery Stores and Fast Food folk. Area Clusters where the disease is ‘rampant’. LOTTERIES???? REALLY?!!!!

  9. What about if those people who are vaccinated, transmit the virus to other s. It can be worse if they transmit the virus to their immediate household. Then, you may consider to vaccinate the more vulnerable communities first, like African Americans, or people with the preexisting health conditions and their household.

    1. @Susan Long Thank you for replying to me. I think that I heard from Dr Fucci that the vaccinated people may still be able to transmit the virus, but it could be in a milder form, or in the early stages of vaccination.

  10. The initial purpose of the vaccine is to clear out our hospitals so that everyone can get the care they need. Make a list of all the hospitalized Covid patients and rank them by length of stay. Vaccinate those in the groups with the longest hospital stays, first, and then work your way down. Some statisticians will love this job.


  12. No, Andrea, we should not administer the vaccine based on skin color. No one is more biologically vulnerable because of their ethnic background, as far as we know.
