No one has ever died from missing their 2nd dose

In the Pfizer vaccine trial results, there was 91% protection in the first 7 days after the second dose, a period in which the second dose has not yet kicked in .

In other words, you get an amazing bounce in terms of herd coverage from just a single shot of the Pfizer vaccine (and it’s very likely that there’s a close similar effect for other vaccines).

So for a country that ranks in the mid-2-digits in terms of vaccination stats, why would anyone in Canada be getting a 2nd shot until we have far more vaccine doses provided?

Or to cite Dr. Marty Makary, editor of MedPage Today, “No one has ever died from missing their 2nd dose.”
