Making money from hysteria...great!

Lets give everyone a third "booster" shot and make more money... shameless!

-4 ( +5 / -9 )

Such good fortune that the pandemic arrived just as the new mRNA vaccines had been developed. It has certainly saved the reputation of an industry that had taken a few dents from the opioid scandal.

The long term story will be all the other vaccines which become possible using the mRNA techniques and how existing vaccines that aren't over 90% effective can be vastly improved.

The change to the vaccination world from mRNA is just as great as when the first cowpox innoculations for wealthy Europeans were used against smallpox. The world will be very different.

And mRNA has many other capabilities. Small groups of subjects with sickle cell have been using mRNA treatments to effectively cure that deadly disease.

The world is changing. The $4B is next to nothing compared to what is coming.

Thank you Moderna and Pfizer

I hope more people are starting to understand the massive incentive they have for getting those cheap, safe, and effective repurposed drugs banned.

That would be placebo, and it is unethical, even if inert drugs are used, much more with drugs that not only don't give any benefit but also come with health risks

Moderna and Pfizer are the gold standard, if you can locate them. Literally, the gold standard, each vial worth its weight in gold.

Hold your horses. Let's wait for more data and make sure these wonder vaccines live up to the hype or take us down the pipe. Ongoing safety data review!

Data concerning the issue of lack

of data concerning the mRNA injectables

Data concerning the issue of lack

That source is extremely deficient, makes a lot of complete misrepresentations and mistaken assumptions, I would not recommend to give too much importance to what is written there.

For example

"When the FDA grants EUA for a vaccine, many questions about the product cannot be answered because the testing data is unavailable."

That applies for all kind of approval, no matter how much something is studied there is always questions that require more testing data, aspirin or penicillin are still being studied, that does not mean that they are still in process of approval

"It not only typically takes years to create a new vaccine, but most often, despite the best efforts of scientists, a successful vaccine proves impossible."

COVID vaccines depend on development of over 10 years, and already have been proved to be successful above any expectation.

"the clinical trials the FDA will rely on to ultimately decide whether to license these vaccines are still underway and are designed to last for approximately two years to collect adequate data to establish if these mRNA injections and vaccines are safe and effective enough for the FDA to license."

This is completely false, full approval of the vaccines do not depend in any way of any study that would take years to complete, this is an imaginary requirement. The actual requirement consist on being able to evaluate if the vaccines are safer than the infection (already proved) and that they are effective preventing complications and death from COVID (also already proven).

At this point full approval could be given without any problem.

So, why have Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca all been granted legal indemnity against damages IF their products are so safe?

Happy jabbing!

And why aren’t all countries not accepting injections given abroad as valid?

PCR tests are still required for fully vaccinated people!

PCR tests alone not sufficient for travel, it seems

So, why have Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca all been granted legal indemnity against damages IF their products are so safe?

The answer is simple, they are not given immunity. The government is absorbing compensation for people that ask for it (to the huge benefit of the population in general and specifically to those that ask for compensation), that is a completely different thing. If vaccine developers deliver a faulty vaccine or are found to be lying in the data they submit for approval they can perfectly be held responsible and be even prosecuted, that is no immunity at all, nor it has anything to do with any of the many problems in your source.

And why aren’t all countries not accepting injections given abroad as valid?

For many reasons, none of which has any relevance on the false information included in your source, which is still deeply mistaken.
