Sometimes I wish Northam were not so predictable.
The CDC recommendations for vaccine distribution allocate the first doses to healthcare workers in contact with COVID patients and to Long Term Care Facility residents and staff.
Then the CDC recommends distribution to the most vulnerable adults, those over 65 and over 55 with co-morbidities. But there Virginia differs.
Northam’s plan inserts “Essential Workers” ahead of high risk adults. Who are essential workers?
Public Employee Union members including teachers, first responders, transportation workers. Pretty much everyone who works for the government.
Vaccination of high risk adults could be pushed back months depending on supply.
So much for ‘follow the science’ and having a doctor as governor, it’s all about political payback.
