Today my wife and I got our first dose of Pfizer BioNTech Covid 19 Vaccine after probably more than 14 months since the first lock down notice from 2020. Of course it is still too soon to declare victory, as our second dose is still scheduled 3 months from now.
On a related note, the Ontario government has also declared the AstraZeneca vaccine will no longer be available as a first dose: “the decision was made out of an abundance of caution.”
I can’t help but think that this sounds a bit contradictory to what the government was peddling a few weeks ago. It kind of makes you think whether their 3 months guidance between the two doses of mRNA based vaccines is warranted and backed up by facts or not.
Regardless, this is another case of inconsistent information provided by our institutions. It certainly will continue to chip away at the credibility of the same institutions.
I hope we learn something from episodes such as this. In the meantime, both of our sons, who are age 17 and 16 should also be eligible for Pfizer or Moderna soon. We are now just monitoring our local clinic schedules to see when they can be booked. Fingers crossed, and three months cannot come soon enough.
