Default Vaccine Results Looking Good!

I just read that they are reporting this morning that the phase 1 vaccine trails are looking better than expected. EVERY single person given the vaccine is producing anti-bodies at levels of someone who was actually infected with Covid-19. They are starting phase 2 now, and hope to have FDA approval for emergency use of the vaccine by early Fall. This is good news I think....

An accelerated push of this vaccine is the only thing that will encourage pre-virus travel prior to the estimated 2-3 year recovery window. Good news indeed.

Here's some recent vaccine media coverage, all relevant and positive, none of it from the fake/agenda news outlets....

So assuming this works, will you need to show proof of vaccination to get past tsa, into a ball game, on a college campus, federal courthouse etc? Maybe get to 60-70% of the population then call it good?

It really looks like Moderna is onto something with their vaccine ending phase 2 this summer and possibly being approved for the public next winter.

Plus JNJ is already building a facility to mass manufacture vaccines 24/7 by early 2021.

I'm not sure if they're counting on the mass production of their own vaccine to eclipse other vaccines that may get approved earlier, but won't be as widely available, or if they'd be willing to partner with Moderna or someoone else to bring their vaccine up to speed faster (or if that's even technically possible, I'm not a pharmacist but I'd imagine that could be like converting a Boeing factory to an Airbus factory).

Either way, if a vaccine can be widely disseminated before the economy core locks from defaulted loans, small business failures, and unemployment, then this might be the "V" recovery we're all hoping for.

If a vaccine is freely and readily available then it's like smoking cigs... if an individual chooses to smoke (or chooses not to get vaccinated), the individual is responsible for the consequences.

The trials are expected to be successful, they were in the past for coronavirus. The problems come when they actually try and manufacture the vaccine.

Whatever we do don't let our guard down given a potential second wave this fall.

And hopefully all of us will remember the lessons learned and we do everything we can to mitigate the environment that supports transmission of these pathogens in the future especially with respect to air travel. Even the people who still have jobs have had a lot of family members who have lost their job and one paycheck doesn't cut it. Hammer China to get and keep their house in order with respect to their labs, wet markets etc. so we're less likely to face this again and for heavens sake bring critical manufacturing back to the U.S.

Agreed, heavily biased, left wing propaganda.
