Easy to distribute effective vaccine. Good news

1 ( +7 / -6 )

We are still at the point of needed as many vaccines as possible, so another option proved effective and safe is something very positive. Each option have their own advantages over the others and all together will help the world recover from the pandemic sooner.

I hope this one is safer than the mRNA vaccines, which quickly spread throughout the body and accumulates in the spleen, liver, kidneys, brain... where the spike protein can cause serious damage.

I wonder if the spike protein provided by the Novavax vaccine (produced by a moth cell line) has similar toxic effects and body distribution.

I hope this one is safer than the mRNA vaccines, which quickly spread throughout the body and accumulates in the spleen, liver, kidneys, brain... where the spike protein can cause serious damage.

There is no evidence of this ever being the case, and the scientific consensus is that this do not happen. The existence of asymptomatic infections where the amount of the protein accumulating in tissues of the body is much more important should be enough to prove this explanation makes no sense.

I'm starting to think that websites should be accountable for what their users post. Maybe then dangerous misinformation like this wouldn't be permitted.

You could perhaps argue that serious damage might be rare; but you're wrong in saying that it is never the case. Bio-distribution studies have shown it to spread throughout the body and the spike protein has been shown to trigger blood clotting and other issues. And I’m sure you’ve heard about the CDC calling an emergency meeting (tomorrow!) over heart inflammation after Covid vaccination.

I think more harm is caused by preventing the public to have access to important information.

What I am saying is that there is zero evidence of this damage happening because of vaccination, and there are many examples of it not happening even with several orders more of magnitude of protein accumulating in the body. There is also zero evidence of issues from the spike protein at the concentrations observed from the vaccine.

Lies and conspiracy nonsense are not important and do not qualify as information.

still below Sputnik...

There was this bloke down the pub who said that these new fangled vaccines caused gayness in lab rats. He got that from the internets! So it must be true right?

But seriously, Could people stop posting anti vaccine nonsense they picked up from their favorite right wing nutjob website. If you are not a doctor, pharmacist, public health professional or have a phD in virology etc.. you are probably not qualified to even try to counter the real experts.
