    The vaccine everyone is talking about lately is based upon a new process for developing vaccines and so far it appears to be safe and 90% effective after a phase three clinical trial of 10's of thousands of people. All that remains is for all their data and so on to be vetted for accuracy but that could take until the end of the year.

    Assuming the vaccine works as advertised and is approved by health agencies like Health Canada and the FDA, estimates of how long it will take after that to distribute it widely enough for people to be able to return to more or less normal life vary from roughly 3 to 24 months depending upon regional conditions like access to healthcare and overall economic status. Personally, I'm guessing that it will take at least 6 months into 2021 before we can safely reopen the Canadian border to United States travelers without some sort of vaccine passport and I haven't heard much about any plan for something like that. Anyway, that would be a good enough sign to me to consider the pandemic over, basically.

    So, given the timeline for full distribution of the vaccine is only an estimate, but also given that pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer will have already started producing doses in the millions in anticipation of approval, how soon do you think things will be fully returned to as normal a condition as possible in your area?

    Depends on how many people take it. You're going to have those CT nuts pushing their vaccine hesitancy crap. 94.5% effectiveness is great. At least it nearly guarantees immunization. But the idea is to try and irradicate this virus before it mutates and so long as it continues to exist, it'l have a chance at doing that. also we don't know how long the immunization lasts.

    JHC you sure are doubling down. So a four part poll that has a 6 month period a 1.5 mid summer period, and a next winter seems like the best way to capture the question.

    you are very smart

    Do you know any of the potential long term side effects this slap dash vaccine can cause? No? Great, neither do they. But yeah, the hesitant people are the real nutters...

    Sorry the poll wasn't set up the way you wanted it, but your inability to understand that spring is included in "before summer" is not my fault nor is it my problem

    Unfortunately TS I am not very optimistic that it will generate the zombies we deserve.

    It does not seem like our overlords intent for life to ever go back to normal, vaccine or no vaccine.

    You have an IQ of a cucumber. A poll asking about the vaccine that has a 6 month period, a 1.5month period and a next winter period makes as much sense as your folks deciding to breed. Both completely stupid and accomplishes nothing.

    Look I'm sympathetic to that, but at the same time not not taking it means continued outbreaks and lockdowns.

    Next time say that first instead of stupidly going "Where's Spring?" even though it was included in the poll under "Before Summer"
    Could have saved everyone a lot of time if you just properly expressed your opinion in the first post
    Harping on this is not a good way to save face, and projecting your own intellectual failing onto me is weird
