As far as I'm aware, there is nothing being given to those having received the vaccine to prove the fact, although their health records will be suitably noted. It's difficult to understand as well why 'passports' would be given, unless some of the people have already had their second dose? For those of us well down 'the list' for a vaccination, it does seem very strange to let loose those who've had a jab... As I understand it, the vaccination doesn't mean you can't get Covid, it means the effects are likely to be much less - or have I misunderstood that?

I think that depends on which virus you receive.
What is reported is that the Pfizer developed vaccine should give you about 6-10 months immunity, when succesfull.
However the same article stated that the vaccine - like getting over the actual virus will have an independant effect on each person, as it is all about the personal immune system developing the resilience.

Many who get over the COVID-19 virus with close to no symptoms do not evolve the antibodies at all and can get infected over-and-over again.

A big part of the long circuit is a public road. So this part doesn't cost so much to the ACO.

Does the ACO have to pay the local council or the department for the road closure Eric?

Sadly I'm sure you're all well aware of the disfunction on my side of the pond, so who knows what is happening or going to happen over here as far as the vaccine is concerned. I'm 44, and my wife is also 44. I did a little question and answer thing on the New York Times website a few weeks back, where is your place in line? It had a graphic of 100 people, put in your details, age, location, industry, and then it would show you your place in line. I was 99th in line. My wife same age, same location, but she's a nurse. First in line! I totally get it, just thought that the difference between us was funny.

She'd taken some time off work due to an injury. She went back to work last week (yes, the situation in a hospital in California is as dire as the reporting from the news), she's getting pinned this week...

Can you borrow her uniform put on some makeup and a nice wig and jump the queue? Or go right to the top of the list by becoming a politician. Only joking but here the arguments as to who gets the jab and in what order has produced some heated discussions for certain. I am still hopeful for 2021 or should i say desperate that we will be able to do something.

Andrew, the works on the circuit are paid by the local authorities ( Le Mans, the district of Le Mans, La Sarthe Département and the region) pay the works all around the circuit

Thanks Eric. Presumably on the basis of the huge economic boost that the race week brings to the area....

personally I do not think anything with public allowed will be held before the end of the summer, Europe is in a big mess right now and things are not looking better at all... vaccines will not change the fact that the virus is still around and WHO is talking about African and UK mutations that are even worse in spreading....
I hope for better things but it is not looking good at all.

I think the whole WEC calendar is going to need major surgery. Sebring seems up in the air from a travel perspective.

I'd move Spa into the Le Mans dates and maybe it can run with limited fans of BCD. Do your pre-season test at Spa too. Then run Monza in it's scheduled slot and then push Le Mans into mid-late August so it's still the third round.

Like I said before, at least that way you can plan with more certainty.

There will be no fans at Spa until either a) Covid is resolved or b) mass immunity (70% or higher) has been reached.
