The top priority is to reduce the deaths and the quickest way of doing that is give it to those most likely to die of it first, i.e. the old and vulnerable.What I don't quite get is what happens to the 50 mill who aren't vaccinated. Say the 10 million most at risk from CV are vaccinated initially - by Easter for example. Care home and medical staff, the over 75's and the otherwise most vulnerable. That might tick the box of shielding people and 'protecting the NHS', but it doesn't stop CV from being in general circulation.
Is it left to rip through on the basis the effects are milder for everyone else and the NHS can cope with those that it isn't or are we still severely hampered?
Once you've got everyone vulnerable and over 70 covered, then you work your way down. 60-70 yr olds, then 50-60 yr olds etc, etc.
I guess once you've got to most people over 50 covered then it doesn't really matter how much it's left to rip across the rest.
