New M's job has her's scheduled
Nurse in a nursing home, doesn't get any higher priority. Me on the other hand, I assume it'll be available at 6 months. At least M won't keep on bringing it home. Maybe. They're not sure if a vaccinated person can still carry and transmit.
New That's the big question
I saw someone suggest that instead of prioritizing those most likely to catch it, we should prioritize those most likely to transmit it. So all the college students and other idiots who you know aren't social distancing.

Then someone pointed out that we might keep them all from developing symptoms, but we don't know that we'd keep them from carrying. I really hope there's people who know what they're doing in charge by the time we start giving it out.

New NO. And I do mean NO! That is the *WRONG* group to immunize first.
Think about it. Who are the most likely to spread it? The anti-mask crowd. You want to protect idiots first? No. Just no.

New Why not?
Suppose a vaccine prevents someone from carrying/spreading? Each dose given to a senior citizen saves one person. Each dose given to an idiot on their way to spring break saves 10 people.

New "Suppose" is doing WAY TOO MUCH heavy lifting.
There's no proof a vaccinated person cannot transmit the disease. If such were the case, you'd have an argument. As it is, all we know is that by vaccinating an idiot you'd be protecting an idiot whilst consuming a dose that's in terribly short supply.

So, again, no. Just NO.

New You don't seem to understand how hypotheticals work

New A major problem with 'weighing' hypotheticals is surely: Today==when so much data is suppressed,
fabricated, outright politicized ..or just an [unknown-Unknown]. We Know this, by now.

I no magick for telling-the-Difference (either) ..since common-sense has become an embattled brain-sense.
