What’s Up With the Oxford AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine?

It looks like the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19’s drug trial data contained some errors — particularly errors in administration of the vaccine itself and then documentation of the results. Not gonna lie, AstraZeneca’s clinical results for the new vaccine trials they have initiated should be given a searching review. Apparently, they have not always been fully forthcoming to the FDA on drug trials. I recommend Katherine Eban’s Bottle of Lies for those who would like to learn more.

Is the COVID-19 Vaccine Available Yet?

I discussed the reports of Americans arriving at CVS and Walgreens for a COVID-19 vaccination. I asked my students to send me a picture of any sign warning no COVID-19 vaccine is yet available if they came across one. It took the first student to locate one only three days to send the picture on.

I can’t make up my mind whether this is a hopeful sign concerning take up rate once there is a COVID-19 vaccine or a harbinger of doom over Thanksgiving plans made dependent upon a vaccine-generated immunity.
