The bulk of the covid cases and transmission occurs in the age groups 18-24 and 25-49. I've felt that the best way to reach herd immunity as fast as possible is to target these age groups and would also keep the economy moving by keeping workers productive. I've found a study that seems to support my assumption.
From the report:
Following initial declines, in mid 2020 a resurgence in transmission of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) occurred in the US and Europe. As COVID19 disease control efforts are re-intensified, understanding the age demographics driving transmission and how these affect the loosening of interventions is crucial. We analyze aggregated, age-specific mobility trends from more than 10 million individuals in the US and link these mechanistically to age-specific COVID-19 mortality data. We estimate that as of October 2020, individuals aged 20-49 are the only age groups sustaining resurgent SARS-CoV-2 transmission with reproduction numbers well above one, and that at least 65 of 100 COVID-19 infections originate from individuals aged 20-49 in the US. Targeting interventions – including transmission-blocking vaccines – to adults aged 20-49 is an important consideration in halting resurgent epidemics and preventing COVID-19-attributable deaths.
Cases, data, and surveillance to track and analyze COVID-19.
Are you suggesting a 30 year old should get vaccinated before a 65 year who is 1100 times more likely to die. Young people get covid more often because they know their risk of dying from it is small. They therefore go to parties hang out with friends all the things that cause infection. All that is fine because for them its the flu for older people its deadly.
That type of thinking that only 30 year olds have a life and work is symptomatic of the times I guess
