The first vaccine batch to come to Korea - the British version. It’s lower cost and less effective than the American versions - also easier to store because it doesn’t need to be kept as cold ... but it ain’t gonna hurt you either. Trials have been done.

Re: fast tracking of vaccine approvals

They have been tested (the Chinese one has some unknowns) as usual, but it is the “sitting in the in the queue for  months” part that was fast-tracked.

I doubt we'll get the vaccine before October. So no chance of a holiday until summer 2022 at the earliest if you wanna keep your job. I also think masks will be here to stay, especially in schools for at least the rest of our lives in SK.

That's the toughest medicine to take.  Another summer vacation spent in Korea.

We’ll have to stay in Korea all of 2021 .... but winter vacation of 2022 maybe we’ll be allowed to go abroad. Big maybe. 50% chance?

If we can't, and Europe and North America are open to travel I think I'll crack and have to split.  I'm already pissed at the the thought I'm going to be stuck here in the summer of '21.  I like it here, but I need to get out at least once a year.  I believe I only went one year without leaving the country if memory serves me right.  And that's in a total of about 15 years cumulatively.

Currently there is a bill in the Korean National Assembly proposing to make the Covid vaccines mandatory for all adults.

https://pal.assembly.go.kr/law/readView.do?lgsltpaId=PRC_C2D1G0D1W1R9V1Y1K2Z6B2K9Z9K0A4

Dr.  Sucharit Bhakdi, a famous Thai-German microbiologist has explained in interviews that these vaccines will cause autoimmue problems. Also, Dr. Micheal Yeadon, who is a former Vice President of Pfizer, has created a petition to stop the use of mRNA vaccines, citing the possiblity of the vaccine triggering ADE (antibody dependent enhancement) and autoimmune issues.

Dr.  Sucharit Bhakdi interview.

Please discuss this situation with Korean friends, spouses, family members, and other expats, if you have not already.
I am not against all vaccines. But, forced injections are a violation of basic rights, and in this case there is scientific evidence that the mRNA vaccines are more dangerous than the virus itself.



A tolerance for fascism here isn't there? 


A lot of the vaccines due to lack of testing and fast runs have given some folks problems.  A friend who has read a lot about this and followed the issue more than me seems to be of the opinion the astrazeneca one is the best one to have.  Less reactions and such.  All I know is the first batch of vaccines will be that one and given to doctors and nurses.

I'd be happy enough to teach there when Corona is gone in another year or two, but that doesn't mean I fully trust the place.  Ha ha.
