    BTW, Bacolod has already received 1,950 vials of Pfizer, and we have no notice of any. At this point it is highly unlikely we will get any of that shipment methinks.

    They sell Champix at the Mercury near the Tsangi, expensive at $150 for a 28 day supply, but it really helps with not smoking.

    This is from the WHO report on Sinovac. I note especially the clause "On the basis of available evidence..." And the request at the end of continuing data retrieval from users.
    "WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE) has also completed its review of the vaccine. On the basis of available evidence, WHO recommends the vaccine for use in adults 18 years and older, in a two-dose schedule with a spacing of two to four weeks. Vaccine efficacy results showed that the vaccine prevented symptomatic disease in 51% of those vaccinated and prevented severe COVID-19 and hospitalization in 100% of the studied population."

    Few older adults (over 60 years) were enrolled in clinical trials, so efficacy could not be estimated in this age group. Nevertheless, WHO is not recommending an upper age limit for the vaccine because data collected during subsequent use in multiple countries and supportive immunogenicity data suggest the vaccine is likely to have a protective effect in older persons. There is no reason to believe that the vaccine has a different safety profile in older and younger populations. WHO recommends that countries using the vaccine in older age groups conduct safety and effectiveness monitoring to verify the expected impact and contribute to making the recommendation more robust for all countries.

    The Delta variant has immunity escape, even from mRNA vaccines.

    My wife has heard that to get the vaccine in Dumaguete you have to provide proof of negative covid test. Is that true? If true that would greatly slow down the administration of the vaccine.
