Healthy 20- and 30-somethings should let the vulnerable get jabbed first


Nurses have access to proper PPE. They're not relying on ill-fitting cloth masks. Their employers have instituted all sorts of mitigation processes and procedures. The data show that there is extremely low mortality risk associated with COVID-19 for healthy - meaning non-obese, non-diabetic, etc. - people under the age of 40. Plus, there's no evidence to confirm the vaccine prevents transmission.
The case fatality rate for medical personnel ages 16-44 regardless of underlying conditions was 0.15% (Source: CDC) and it is undoubtedly lower if you eliminate the obese, diabetics, etc., from the sample and if you adjust for the earliest infections when PPE may not have been readily available and less was known about means of transmission. The CFR for people 70+ with co-morbidities is many times higher. Like 20% for men over 80.
If the purpose of vaccinations is to prevent deaths, we're starting in the wrong place.
