While the FDA decision came only after public review of data from a huge ongoing study, it has also been dogged by intense political pressure from the Trump administration, which has accused the agency of being too slow and even threatened to remove FDA chief Stephen Hahn if a ruling did not come Friday.

Trump to FDA : "Forget about process, safety, or science. Approve it now or your fired."

How reassuring.

As per usual,the bullying of Trump forced the FDA to act now.Of course he'll be looking to take credit.His credit can be for the close on 300,000 deaths on his watch while he mostly held outdoor events and played golf.But you can also cast blame on those who voted for him back in '16.As Gandhi once said," If there's an idiot in power,it means those who elected him are well represented."

Don't take something rushed to market, just research "pathenogenic priming" ...

99% survival rate, vs. 95% effective in preventing SYMPTOMS ... not in preventing infection

And China and Russia didn’t wait for final-stage tests before beginning vaccinations with some homegrown shots.

...And, of course, we'll NEVER know just how many of those 'early test cases' didn't go well especially in China where this whole mess started and was covered up until it was too late.

And China and Russia didn’t wait for final-stage tests before beginning vaccinations with some homegrown shots.

Each had 40000 plus study tests that showed safety and response to be at least as high, actually better than vaccine approved for use in the USA and Canada. It is all about politics and money. Western governments, western medias and their heavily brainwashed populations are Sinophobic and Russophobic while their own scientific medical communities say otherwise.

The mRNA "vaccine" is extremely Dangerous. In Pfiezrs stage 3 Trials 6 died and ALL of the Drug Co.

in their trials had Serious adverse reactions. In England 2 Nurses require Resuscitation and now will

Only Administer the shots if there are Emergency teams next to you.

Moderna and the other mRNA Bio Weapon shots were Catastrophic.

I wish Americans well with it. Even those who need saving from themselves.

The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found only half of Americans want the vaccine when it’s their turn. About a quarter say they won’t get it and the rest aren’t sure.

Most of those who won't are Republicans. Trump should make himself useful, get on Twitter and tell 'em to do it.

Pathogenic priming is precisely one of the possibilities that is eliminated during clinical trials, if vaccinated people got the infection and its less symptomatic that means there was no pathogenic priming.

Also, that is how every single vaccine works, its realistically impossible to prevent incoming viruses to infect even a single cell, that defines infection. But if the infection is interrupted before the disease is established then the vaccine completely fulfilled its purpose.

False, whatever source you used to read that information is lying to you. In the trials there were no COVID-19 related deaths (obviously you are not going to blame the vaccine for not protecting people from their pre-conditions or accidents, are you? specially when the deaths happened in non-vaccinated people) And no, there was no resucitation necessary because the reactions were pseudo-anaphylactic, having equipment to solve possible allergic reactions is something that has to be in hand for every vaccine (at least in civilized countries) Why do you think doctors are the ones that give you the shots?

Where’s your proof that most of the people who refuse the vaccine are republicans? Or is this more tds still even after Biden has won?

I wish Americans well 

Usually how an anti American from the commonwealth or continent starts their sentences. It means the total opposite: they DO NOT wish Americans well. Expect a follow up of: I got friends and family in the US.

But you can also cast blame on those who voted for him back in '16.

So you’re saying those who voted for Trump in 2016 are responsible for the deaths of COVID-19? That’s sick! And disturbing! Don’t let yourself be defined by Trump. Also, you’ll need scientific data to back up that claim, or else it sounds more like tds.

And when did you guys become so fond of political persecution of people who vote differently from you?

Yawn. Because even you know that was not said.

Mr Noidall:

Didn't see your preposterous reply until today, but can't let it pass, just in case anyone's still reading.

Heaps of proof, if you can be bothered looking. Here's just one, found after 5 seconds on the internet and plucked from among the many.

Democrats, and those who lean to the Democratic Party, were found to be 14% more likely than Republicans to get a vaccine (58% vs. 44%).

You really are a cynic, aren't you? No, I really do wish Americans, and everyone else, well, I don't want them to get sick and die. Why the hell would I? I think you're extrapolating from your own feelings, and you can't imagine anyone else would feel differently about people on the other side of politics. And No, I don't have friends or family in the US.

Clearly didn’t see the meaning the of the article either, to which you provided a link.

Nearly Half Of All Americans, Including Most Republicans, Say They Would Not Get Covid-19 Vaccine

reread what that headline says. Half of all Americans are not republicans. You guys are so insane: first you say Hilary won the popular vote by a landslide and should have been president; then you say Biden won both popular and ec by a landslide; but then you assume half the country is republican who refuse the vaccine. You guys get so manipulated by the media whenever they throw a poll around. At least you can take the time to understand that poll.
