The first Argentine volunteer for the Oxford vaccine against coronavirus. Pablo Andrés Berra is 54 years old and has lived in South Africa for 12 years, the fifth country with the most cases of coronavirus in the world, with more than 380 thousand infections.

I heard a very positive podcast today about the Oxford vaccine by two very well regarded American epidemiologists. They think it will be available in the U.S. in large numbers in the Fall. I don't know if that means September or later towards November. Hopefully the former.

Let's hope it comes soon, hopefully Argentina has / will manage to secure early access to vaccines after hosting trials here otherwise it could be a long wait until it reaches our shores.

My hypothesis is that even when a vaccine appears to be imminent, most governments (especially this one...) will continue tourism restrictions until travellers can provide certification of having a current vaccination as well as various restrictions on social gatherings and business activities where there is circulation. Otherwise the political risk or "defeat" of normalising these final frontiers before the vaccine "cures it" could simply be too damaging. With over a billion international travellers to vaccinate and a few billion others, most of us probably won't have our wings back until well into 2021, especially if priority goes to elderly and immunocompromised etc.

In 1976 a vaccine was used in the US. 25 people died; at least 500 were paralyzed. I know one of those who was totally paralyzed. It took two years for him to recover speech and movement. This vaccine is being rushed and we cannot know for some time if it is really safe.
