    Sth,

    That’s easy. EWs. They face potential or actual exposure countless times per day per shift.

      I feel that your heart is in the right place, Ronald. But another way of looking at the question is: Who should we use as guinea pigs, essential workers or the elderly?

        Good point. I had to smarten up fast when I first took future life span into account in forming my opinion. I changed my mind damned fast when I started to get a clue to as to how most people die due to COVID-19. No one should die that way, no matter how old or how young.

        This discussion is a gold mine for medical ethics profs. You could go on until the cows come home.

    In a perfect world there would be enough vaccine resources so that there was no need to choose.
