This is okay if managed correctly. Deviating from the FDA requirements of 2nd doses at 21/28 days for mRNA vaccines is too much of a gamble. On the plus side, with Pfizer running ahead of schedule in it's production ramp - there is more hope that this can be accomplished. I'm not sure how this will affect me, just read in Sunday's local paper that 1b folks will be vaccinated in February-March. I'll get a call from my provider's hospital network with scheduling and location info. And the NH national guard are the ones doing the actual injections, as well as directing traffic and crowd control.Government wants to not hold on to 2nd doses now and adjust eligibility to 65+ and anyone over 16 with conditions. CDC expected to announce today.
Bourla was on CNBC and upped Pfizer's production to 2B doses for 2021. Says production expansion proceeding over previous expectations and material supplies are in line.
