Great question. These recommendations make over 152M people eligible for the vaccine, but don't speed up our rate of vaccination. Good to have more people vaccinated but we need to remember the 2nd dose and prioritize those at highest risk of infection - like essential workers. https://t.co/ZwkbStizGN
#AskReuters How will the Administration’s decision to release all vaccine doses now (instead of holding back half for 2nd doses) and also allowing states to open eligibility to anyone over 65 affect the ability for the general public to get vaccinated?

@HeatherHPierce @Reuters If I remember the Pfizer data correctly, there was a significant protective effect with just the one dose - not enough - but at the 50% level IIRC.
