Prioritizing Covid19 vaccinations?

The following article about Covid19 vaccinations appeared on page 4A of the January 25, 2021 issue of the Courier-News:

Although the issue of priority is real, this evokes something of "deck chairs on the Titanic," with the exception that, unlike Covid19 vaccinations in Somerset County, New Jersey, there really were deck chairs on the Titanic.

The lead story on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt on 25 January 2021 was indeed about the difficulty in getting vaccine appointments (and about not getting a vaccination for an already scheduled appointment.)

Separately, there were pieces on Dr. Fauci recommending "double masking" and on the new Covid mutants. Of the latter, a math biologist from Great Britain asserted that the new mutants were 70% more likely than the earlier strain to infect someone through a short, chance encounter.
