Oh wait, politics are more important than lives.

Vaccine denier supports vaccine. What a shocker.

”Denier” is correct.

Millions of Europeans want to take the Sputnik V vaccine.

Why are they being denied the vaccine they are willing to take?

But you don’t. Why not?

But you don’t. Why not?

Because I have the right to choose and so do they.

Whether a person chooses to take the Sputnik vaccine or not is their personal choice.

Nobody should be denied their right to choose.

I agree, let people decide for themselves what they think is good for them and their bodies. I would like to get vaccinated to be honest, but I’ll wait a few years, hear a lot of problems and side effects and I’m just a cautious person, that’s my choice.

Some countries stockpiled more vaccines than they needed, this is European Union! And they were fighting for more!

Look.

Nobody is being forced to take a vaccine and nobody is being denied. People are having to wait for a vaccine, everywhere, because of this little thing called approval and logistics.

You are complaining about fast-tracking in another thread, so that’s no excuse.

You also conveniently forgot to mention that over 60% of Russians have expressed refusal to take Sputnik.

But you see no problems with ‘fast-tracking’ it across Europe except that it’s all a political conspiracy, of course.

Bob,

My position is 100% individual choice.

Nobody should be forced to take a chemical injection.

The Russian vaccine is available, nobody in Europe should be denied it if they want it.

There’s nothing inconsistent in my position.

Wrong again.

There is no ‘individual choice’. Everyone is beholden to whichever vaccine their government approves and buys. Countries have the choice to buy Sputnik, 39 countries have.

No individual is being ‘denied’.

No individual is being ‘denied’.

The people in Europe who are willing to take the vaccine but can't because it's being blocked for political reasons are getting denied their right to choose which vaccine they want to take.

The government should not make decisions for people.

If they want to take Sputnik V, let them and don't block it.

If they don't want any vaccine, leave them alone.

Why is individual choice such a difficult concept to understand.

It's simple.

Freedom and choice.

Poor show today. I can’t see you getting a bonus this week.

You know nothing. 

Seems like a lot of the scientists don’t know a lot either given the daily changes

It doesn’t mean nothing is known.

Bingo, especially with the some of the side effects people have been having

Is this how the Russians felt before they were allowed blue jeans and McDonald’s? Is that your point?

You keep talking about political reasons. Explain why Russians overwhelmingly don’t want to take Sputnik. What’s the reason for that?
