6. That is not the real problem

The problem is that many of the countries that need the vaccine do not have the type of infrastructure to store some of these vaccines - notably the mRNA vaccines. Full Stop.

Most of the rest of the world has been distributing the adenovirus-type ones which have easier storage requirements, and it's a matter of getting more of that out AND getting the logistics and infrastructure in these countries up and running. We only have one of those types approved (Janssen (J&J)).

We have seen over and over and over and over when there is some "disaster" - countries and individuals will donate stuff, it's shipped to those countries, and there it sits - on a plane in a hangar, on a ship at a port, in a warehouse shoved in the corner, NEVER getting out to those who needs it because there is no distribution plan, no trucks available to load to get it distributed, no places to store the stuff temporarily, and often no roads to get to the "last mile" places where people who most need the stuff, live.

It's sadly a shit show.

And right now, I am listening to the FDA VRBPAC meeting, where the "public comments" session going on right now and all the FUCKING ANTI-VAX loons signed up to give their presentations.
