Good news from Moderna about its vaccine.  Over 90% effective and doesn't have to be deep-cold stored like Pfizer's.   So if two vaccines get approved soon, that should greatly increase the amount of vaccines available.

Now you just have to wait.  I feel terrible for all the people who are going to die between now and next spring, when they might have been saved by a vaccine but weren't.

To add to this the Moderna vaccine is 94.5% effective.  It doesn't require the deep cold storage the Pfizer vaccine does which makes it easier to distribute but it is also a two shot dose 28 days apart.  It might also be a required annual vaccine.  Not enough data on that point yet.
