Subject: [ExI] how does it work?


Are the people making the vaccine getting rich?  Are they getting any price they ask for?  Is there a possible monopoly here?  If they are getting so rich, why can't they open new labs to meet the demand and get even richer?  Are there supply problems?


Just asking 'What's the holdup?'   bill w




A person who knows things clued me exactly on that Billw.  Turns out the supply was not really the most limiting factor in many cases.  The bottleneck was in getting enough qualified people to watch the recipients for allergic reactions.  That turned out to be a bigger challenge than expected, because not just anybody can do that.  The recipients need to be kept apart as they wait for half an hour or so, and that takes a lotta floor under a roof, which costs money.  It takes a lotta people to watch them and people cost money.
