    The image is from Economic Times. In India, some businesses are offering discounts for those who had been vaccinated.

    The image that went with the story could focus the attention of people on the wrist jewellery of the injector:

    P.S. A large dimple would mean either a blunt needle, or a needle that is unnecessarily too thick for the purpose. Big gauge needles are needed only to inject suspensions, not solutions.

    Bharat Biotech seems to have shot themselves in the foot about their own vaccine...
    The phase III data is now delayed until July 2021. Only after that, and its peer review, Covaxin might get WHO approval, and those who got a certified shot will be able to travel into certain foreign countries.

    Here is Barkha Dutt and company discussing that:

    In India we think there is Vaccine hesitancy. Muslims think it is Modi's way of sterilizing all of them. The Aasha foundation volunteers are not organizing vaccinations in two queues, one muslim followed by one non-muslim from the same vial of the vaccine. In America we have it really bad. The top guy is now becoming infamous for having lied all along with various advisories.

    Fauci in the dog house.... Got himself into this mess by fudging things as he went along through press conferences and congressional hearings.

    Pretty soon, I expect Fauci to come out and say " I am not a crook...", resign and go away.

    What I heard from my parents was in the beginning when there was enough supply of vaccine, people weren't willing to take and so much was wasted. Especially, in villages volunteers faced bad experiences.
    Now, everyone wants and runs to get vaccine but the supply is less. Even some of them have been waiting to take second dose of vaccine from 2 months.

    True. My parents in Chennai were telling they were constantly getting messages about vaccines in different locations.

    Not true.

    This clip is nothing but propaganda by the rightwing pushing all the blame onto Dr. Fauci in order to save their orange God, the former guy.
    Surprised to see made up info posted here on this thread.

    In America we have
    • Democratic Socialists -- leftwing nuts
    • Progressives -- leftwing, but occasionally pragmatic
    • Democrats -- pragmatic, feckless, thoroughly focussed on reelections
    • NeoConservatives -- Right leaning democrats in both social/fiscal policies
    • Conservatives -- proper GOP republicans
    • TEA (taxed enough already) Party'ers -- Totally opposed to taxing, and expansion of government
    • Ultra Rightwing nuts - Build That Wall, Lock'er Up, Hang-Mike-Pence Crowd
    Jimmy Dore was a Bernie Sanders supporting Socialist and a standup Comedian. Not a Trumpista by a long shot.

    My post was about how in relatively free societies, with such a lot of talking heads on TV and youtube, Vaccine hesitancy can get twerked up from all corners. Even the socialist, leftwing.
    Jimmy Dore@jimmy_dore
    In fact, Jimmy had tweeted on April 25th:
    I had my second Moderna shot last Saturday.

    And now that the rightwing nut Baba Ramdev is going to get his Covid Vaccine shot, that event would be even more valuable in overcoming India's vaccine hesitancy.

    The Dr. Fauci advisories on masks, opening the economy, NIH funding for ecohealth alliance that got into Wuhan Lab, gain-of-function research, and congressional hearings etc. etc.. would all provide the grist for cable TV and comedians for a good long time. There would be enough blame to go around, in the "if only yada-yada had/hadn't happened..." narratives. Eventually nobody would be accountable.

    addded later...
    Trae Crowder [The Liberal Redneck] is my favourite talking head. His political commentary is true as well as quite hilarious. Here is his comment on the JNJ vaccine PAUSE, and the general vaccine hesitancy among his ilk.

    Right?

    59 pages of a thread that is filled with accurate facts laid before the reader so that they can come to conclusions on their own; and all of a sudden now @Hopikrishnan giving us theories, conspiracy theories and opinions?
