I think the issue with how much vaccine to give is to do with how we do research on drugs.

We do research on them from the perspective of toxicology. That is to say we are obsessed with how much exposure is lethal.

It means that in the animal research it is often 'how much exposure will kill them'. So we subject animals to high dose... Fly spray. Cosmetics. Anasthetics. Etc. We want to plot a dose-response graph... And we sort of dissociate from the fact that we mostly can extrapolate from the known without running many trials that we know are likely to inflict harm or death...

But it's routine for animal research.

And that's why there is concern (rightly) about experimenting on people, too. Toxicity studies.

Methodology needs to develop more humanely.

I think a lot of it just comes from this idea that more must be better. So people are over-dosed not because of greed, really. Just because people want to do everything they can and there is a natural inclination or tendancy to try something... More invasive than what is needed. Or whatever. A young male thing... Because we valued that in doctors... Get in there. Have a go. Be bold. Be a pioneer...

And the science, too.
