There was a long line at Tuodong Stadium when I passed this morning on my way to the PSB.
I would guess that the majority of people in line were in their 20s or 30s and most seemed to have some kind of form in hand.
I makes sense to use a stadium for large crowds since they want everyone to sit for a while after getting the shot.
Lots of seats available at the stadium.
The times I have seen big queues at stadiums, it has been around this time of year, and it was recruitment fairs for those who will graduate this year, and anyone else who wants to queue for that matter.
The signs out front (including pictures) along with the medical personnel and ambulance say this was definitely vaccination queues.
Tomorrow I have to get a vaccine, it's scary as I don't know what x) Tomorrow I will write what and how.
Now the most reliable vaccine is considered to be Chinese and Russian.
As algebra or calculus teachers would write, "please show your work." In Oliver's case, reputable sources citing how Chinese vaccines are "most reliable," granted Sputnik V reportedly has high efficacy above 90%. The Russians recently signed a vaccine production agreement with a Chinese drugmaker for Sputnik to be manufactured in China. We'll see how that alliance goes in the coming months for foreign expats here.
reliable has a totally different meaning in research. and totally dirrerent to effective. if a watch is always 10 minutes slow it is reliable as you can rely on it to be 10 slow. not accurate but reliable. my grandad had a reliable bladder, he always pee at 6am, problem was he didn't get up until 8. reliable is not always good.
Chinese government has now approved American vaccines for foreigners to visit China (this notice only for Dallas, at the moment...)... www.china-embassy.org/eng/visas/zyxx/t1870474.htm
A reliable grandson who always wake grandpa up at 5:59am may be good. ;)
Scientific method in research (with minimal human bias errors) doesn't care about subjective good or bad. It just seeks to obtain the truth.
Reliable data in controlled research (e.g. vaccination test trials) maximizes reliable predictions in the real world. Healthcare policy makers use these data to minimize pandemic fallout for the collective. That is to say, in a perfect world san vaccine diplomacy.
if every field test of vaccine x shows it is 20% effective, the results are reliable. this has nothing to do with how effective the vaccine is. reliability is not a word i would use in describing any vaccine. if every field test of vaccine y shows it is 95% effective, the results are reliable. i also think that the more effective vaccine y would be described as better. if field tests of vaccine z show results of 60-90% effective, the results are unreliable, but vaccine z could be said to be better than vaccine x, assuming all other factors including side effects remain similar.
