Vaccine news is fantastic. We need effective ones But, they won't be available to most for months We can't take our focus off public health measures that can fix this now - Universal masking - No indoor gathering - Physical distancing - Stay home if you've got symptoms

Today, almost 2500 American lives were lost to COVID Thanksgiving cases yet to hit + almost 100k patients in hospital The next 3 months are going to be disastrous but our actions can still have impact - mask, stay home if you're sick, avoid gatherings especially indoors

Most common Q I get: who should get vaccine 1st? Frontline workers: EMS, ED/ICU/Hospital RNs, environmental staff, docs, RTs High risk: eg nursing home pts A group not mentioned is prisoners. COVID tearing through prisons. We must protect this high-risk, highly-vulnerable group
