Trucking Companies Will Start Rolling Out the Coronavirus Vaccine

undefinedTrucking companies will begin rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine to first-responders from a manufacturing plant in Michigan on Sunday the 13th of December.

Once again, trucking companies and their drivers are delivering much-needed cargo to people across America. Truckers have been risking the virus and ensuring necessary supplies of food, water, and medicine restock the shelves in grocery and convenience stores, hospitals, and pharmacies.

Now, they will ensure those who care for Americans, the doctors and nurses, get the vaccine first.

Since the first incident of COVID-19, nearly a year ago,       more than a million and a half people have died, and 71 million have been sickened by the virus worldwide. Now, it seems help is on the way.

Nursing home tenants, the military, and healthcare workers will be some of the first recipients to get the two-shot series. The initial batch is around 3 million vaccines, so 1.5 million will receive immunization in the first wave.

This is considered a bright spot in the fight against the pandemic as many have ignored isolation orders and physical distancing. Nearly 300,000 in the US have died from the effects of the disease.

Trucking Companies Use Refrigerated Trucks to Lead the Push

The vaccine must remain frozen while in transport to hospitals and clinics across the US. Refrigerated trucks will transport the vaccine at -94 degrees Fahrenheit.

Many healthcare workers are being notified to prepare for the vaccination. The initial vaccine will be followed by a second, about two weeks after the first. Those allergic to any of the ingredients are warned not to participate without consulting their doctor.

Although there is some skepticism about the FDA rushing the vaccine's implementation, it is believed to be safe for those without an allergy to any of the ingredients, yet only time will tell.

Trucking & Traffic Tickets, What You Need to Know  

Many commercial drivers don’t realize that whenever they receive a traffic ticket, their livelihood is at risk. It seems shameful that the very people who keep our pharmacies, department stores, and groceries stocked are most at risk of losing their job from a traffic ticket.

Just one ticket could get a commercial driver fired, even a minor infraction, such as speeding, following too closely, or an unsafe lane change. These are “serious offences,” according to the FMCSA, and a second conviction will lead to a 60-day disqualification. The best method to avoid a second conviction is to challenge every traffic ticket with a traffic attorney.
