“A CoV-19 vaccination program is not just about vaccines, but about getting those vaccines to people who need them...Operation Warp Speed delivered Cadillac vaccines to us, but they've come with empty gas tanks & we have a long and difficult road ahead." https://t.co/0wDopDBqu4— Jeffrey Duchin, MD (@DocJeffD) December 21, 2020

“People who are ages 75 and older and frontline essential workers should be next in line to get a COVID-19 vaccine, a federal advisory committee to the CDC determined. Those groups follow frontline health care workers and nursing home residents” https://t.co/t6ThX45wMY— Dori Toribio (@DoriToribio) December 21, 2020

People who are ages 75 and older and frontline essential workers should be next in line to get a COVID-19 vaccine, a federal advisory committee to the CDC determined Sunday.

A CDC panel just voted on who should be included in the next wave of vaccinations:
- people 75 and older
- and about 30 million “frontline essential workers," which is fewer than the 87 million that were originally expected to be includedhttps://t.co/rBHTwsoM87

Seems like the 8MM people 70-75 who have a high risk of dying from COVID (in some cases 10-30X) should be prioritized before the 30MM essential workers under age X who really dont?
Maybe make it "essential over 65 and all over 70?" pic.twitter.com/YlvLkoh3CY
CDC guidelines have been updated: following HCW, people 75yo+ and "'frontline essential workers,' including emergency responders, teachers and grocery store employees" are next in line.— Meena Bewtra (@DrsMeena) December 20, 2020
Again: the exact prioritization is up to the state. https://t.co/sEB5nqGYFA
“A CDC panel voted Sunday to recommend that people 75 and older be next in line to receive the coronavirus vaccine in the US, along with about 30 million ‘frontline essential workers,’ including emergency responders, teachers and grocery store employees.” https://t.co/gAZz7iUoVi— Katie Phang (@KatiePhang) December 20, 2020
Why are politicians cutting the line, when the CDC says old people and frontline workers should be first? Maybe old men and working MDs at the CDC should be instilling confidence by rolling up *their* sleeves. https://t.co/cLUHi0o6dY— the barsh consulting co. #AntiCommunist (@EmilyTVproducer) December 20, 2020

This strikes me as a wisely Solomonic splitting of baby: takes >65yo/essential worker groups, divides them into higher & lower risk, & says hi risk from both groups go next. https://t.co/5QzEJ9gkJH— Bob Wachter (@Bob_Wachter) December 20, 2020
But geez, you look up "Devil is in the details" in dictionary, & you'll see this.
Hi @GovParsonMO, would you mind confirming that Missouri will be following the CDC guidelines (specifically the part about prioritizing "frontline essential workers") on vaccine distribution? Thousands of grocery store workers want to know. Thanks! https://t.co/FBNcqYNtCi— UFCW Local 655 (@UFCW655) December 21, 2020
