Regarding the data. I looked at those tables. They show maybe an effectiveness of about 50% with one shot, but it wasent tested much. Considering half of the USA wont even take it in the first place, that would leave us with a vaccine that is only providing a 25% effective rate.

No one buys into that plan.

A study in the UK found no difference in mortality for hospitalized patients receiving convalescent plasma.  i.e., just as many patients died.   It may be that, if it were administered earlier (before they got so sick), it would help.  It's not that widely available or cheap, so routine administering upon positive test isn't going to happen anyway, so that is academic.

This was almost a year ago and still today Doctors are trying just about anything to save lives. Sounds like the new protocol is monoclonal antibodies and ivermectin. At this point trying anything is on an individual case basis and what seems to work best for that particular person. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But, God bless the healthcare professionals for trying.

Sometimes a clearly-defined mission really helps — they’re trying to save lives and preserve hospital capacity. The vast majority really don’t care about politics as it intersects their real job. 
That’s also true of a lot of election workers, a lot of police, and even programmers.
