Pfizer, a pharmaceutical company that recently publicly said they did not receive money from the US government and that they were not involved in Operation Warp Speed, has launched a pilot program for delivery of its experimental coronavirus vaccine in four states: Rhode Island, Texas, New Mexico and Tennessee. According to a report, the company chose those four states to test any distribution challenges that may arise amid ultra-cold storage requirements. During an update on Operation Warp Speed last week, President Donald Trump said that the Pfizer representative’s words were an “unfortunate misrepresentation.”
Here’s the rub. Pfizer’s vaccine, which has gotten results of being more than 90 percent effective, has to be shipped and stored at minus 94°F, which is undoubtedly below the standard temperature for vaccines that is normally between 36-46°F.
UBS analysts have predicted that between approximately 5 and 10 percent of Pfizer’s vaccine may become ineffective “due to inadequate storage conditions.”
According to Reuters, roughly a third of US states are now purchasing ultra-cold storage equipment. Manufacturers are assuming months-long back-orders and delays for the products, that can range in costs from $5,000 to $15,000 due to unprecedented demand.
That’s a small price to pay for saving lives and helping to eradicate the over-hyped coronavirus that has a 99 percent survival rate. In fact, this particular virus has helped the world morph into an Orwellian dystopian nightmare with politicians and the usual suspect media types to support them, using the hype of the virus to push for mail-in voting in the United States in an effort to cheat in the 2020 election, something we are having to deal with today.
They also used the virus to usher in the tyrants of Democrat-run states where rules only apply to citizens the dictators disagree with politically. We have also learned that coronavirus is the only intelligent virus that takes sides politically having infected citizens who protest to be able to open their small businesses in the wake of draconian lockdowns to feed their children while never affecting people who protest, loot, riot and burn cities to the ground because of the death of George Floyd, which later turned into a movement to push for Marxism in America. But I digress.
“We are hopeful that results from this vaccine delivery pilot will serve as the model for other US states and international governments, as they prepare to implement effective COVID-19 vaccine programs,” Pfizer said in a statement Monday.
The four states were chosen by taking into account the differences in size, in diversity of populations, and immunization infrastructures, etc., along with the ability to be able to reach people in urban and rural settings alike.
Pfizer was clear that none of the four chosen states will have doses delivered sooner than anywhere else in the United States because of the pilot program, and they will get the same considerations as everyone else.
The pharmaceutical company predicts that they will have enough safety data on the inoculation from the late-stage trials by the 3rd week of November prior to moving toward applying for emergency use authorization. Will we experience deep state politics in the interim that will create a lot of government red tape in the never-ending quest to make President Trump and his administration look bad? Who knows, but the odds are in favor of it.
Even though Pfizer said they received no money from the federal government, they were given a deal worth $1.95 billion to distribute 100 million dozes to the federal government, and there is an option to disperse 500 million more doses.
On Monday, Moderna, an American biotechnology company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts that focuses on drug discovery, drug development, and vaccine technologies, made an announcement that their vaccine is 94.5 percent effective in late-stage trials, and that unlike Pfizer’s vaccine, Moderna’s is stable for up to one month at standard refrigeration temperatures.
The Democrats have corrupted just about everything in our lives.
Monday morning’s news about Pfizer showing a 90 percent effectiveness rate in its soon-to-be-available vaccine ought to have been a moment of national unity and celebration. Beyond that, it should have been treated as an incredible achievement of the Trump administration and its efforts through Operation Warp Speed to develop a vaccine. However, no sooner had the news come out than the usual suspects like the New York Slimes and Washington Post went out of their way to make sure Donald Trump got no credit for it.
Kathrin Jansen, the head of vaccine development at Pfizer was quoted by the Times saying, “We have never taken money from the US government or from anyone,” and then she went on to state that Pfizer was never a part of Operation Warp Speed. That just not true. In fact, it’s a bald-faced lie.
As NPR reported back in July, the government reached a deal for close to two billion dollars to help distribute the vaccine. In July, Pfizer itself gave a press release where they announced that the US government put in an initial order for 100 million doses at about $1.95 billion. Money didn’t go into the vaccine’s research and development, but Pfizer most certainly did take government money, and they was forced to walk Jansen’s statement back.
Even Wikipedia mentioned Pfizer is a part of Operation Warp Speed. Go find it quickly, because the leftists at Wikipedia read this and have it taken down.
Look right here:
Newsweek updated the story to give the following clarification:
“This page has been updated to clarify Jansen’s comments following further details from a Pfizer spokesperson. The spokesperson clarified that its vaccine is linked to Operation Warp Speed, though its research and development has not taken funding from the federal government. The headline was also updated for clarity.”
There’s a game that’s played by news media outlets, and it’s really despicable. Instead of the news being that rather than having to wait the normal span of years to come out with a vaccine, the Trump administration’s efforts through Operation Warp Speed saw to it that a vaccine will be out before the end of the year, and according to those involved in the creation of the vaccine, Operation Warp Speed did not eliminate any safety precautions or steps in the manufacturing of the vaccine, but instead these lying bastards in media are going out of their way to try to take away any and all credit from Donald Trump. Truth is not sacred to left-wing news outlets. We’ve known that for at least four years as they got Pulitzer prizes for writing lies about Russian collusion, and they still haven’t apologized for it. But you would think something as serious as a vaccine for what the Left has labeled the Armageddon of viruses, they would at least give some credit to the Trump administration, and apparently, that’s too much to ask.
Seriously, was it too difficult for the Times do a little bit of research to find out that Pfizer was in fact a part of Operation Warp Speed? Would it have killed them to even care about it? I’m sure they heard of Google. Maybe they use Bing? Pretty sure Bing would have told them too. Out of all the people who work at the New York Times, including the writer who reported that Pfizer wasn’t a part of Operation Warp Speed to the editor to let it slide, not a single person believes in following up for facts when it means Donald Trump will be trashed? What a disgrace.
This is what we have become accustomed to since Trump was first elected. You just know darn right well if a Trump person had made that claim, the New York Times would have done the research and they would have pointed out the bullschtein.
What it really comes down to is the Paper of Record is not real journalism. Journalism died in the 1990s and now we have a bunch of leftist activists who claim to be journalists, with a penchant to trash our president at any cost, including their own reputation.
No matter how many lies the Fake News media tell about Donald Trump and his administration, the vaccine(s) coming out, as well as the fantastic therapeutics of late, are a product of the hard work done by the men and woman who worked in Operation Warp Speed. And you can take that to the bank.
On Sunday, CNN host Humpty Dumpty Brian Stelter attempted to virtue signal that Fox News hosts are not sharing “vaccine selfies” to help promote the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines. What business is it of Brian Stelter to complain about what hosts from other networks do? What a little Nancy he is.
Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that about 22 percent of the American population is fully vaccinated, and 187 million doses of vaccine have been given as of Monday.
So, little Brian Stelter goes off claiming “it is important to see all of the TV anchors, personalities showing themselves getting the shot,” even though millions of vaccine administrations per day are happening in the United States.
Then the George Costanza lookalike turned his attention to the importance of “vaccine selfies.” No, I’m not kidding.
“We’ve seen a lot of vaccine selfies from lots of folks at lots of different networks. It’s been really inspiring to see,” Stelter said. “The ‘Today’ show even brought the co-hosts outside for a live group vaccination this week.”
Forever with a rager about Fox News, Stelter mentioned MSNBC host Rachel Maddow getting the vaccine even though she spoke about fears of getting it, and then attacked Fox news hosts because they didn’t follow their Fake News counterparts.
“I get it is a personal choice between the hosts and their health care provider,” he continued. “But everybody else is doing it … all across television, all of those anchors are rolling up their sleeves.” So, if everybody else started doing drugs even though it was not their personal choice, Stelter would expect Fox hosts to do drugs too?
“Fox has a really unique responsibility here.” No, they really don’t. Getting the vaccine is a personal decision, and they shouldn’t be bullied on-air into showing off and virtue-signaling the event.
Gertz argued that by not being more vocal about COVID-19 vaccination, Fox News hosts “are raising questions about its effectiveness, raising questions about whether it is dangerous. That does a lot of damage.”
Okay, but what about the fact that one of CNN’s famous legal analysts just died from the vaccine at the age of 47? Midwin Charles, a legal analyst for CNN and MSNBC passed away after receiving Pfizer’s experimental mRNA. She joins thousands of other people who have reportedly died in the days and weeks after getting their experimental covid-19 vaccinations.
“Steve Doocy should get vaccinated live on ‘Fox and Friends,'” Gertz suggested, to which Stelter replied, “Absolutely.”
What if Doocy already got vaccinated before the Brian Stelters of the world decided to use the event to virtue-signal the world?
Stelter gets paid by CNN to attack Fox News week after week. Maybe it’s because the Fox network beats CNN in the ratings faithfully each week and so CNN president Jeff Zucker probably lost a bet and hired Stelter to be their Pit Bull.
It’s funny how CNN is now concerned with Fox News hosts not televising their flu shots, er, their COVID shots, when it was high-ranking Democrats that broadcast their distrust of the COVID vaccine last year when their TDS rose and they said they don’t trust the vaccine because it was created under Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
During the 2020 campaign, Joe Biden speaking in Wilmington, Delaware last September after being briefed by health experts about the possibility of a vaccine sowed doubt about the vaccine in one of the most irresponsible ways.
“I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don’t trust Donald Trump,” Biden said, “and at this moment, the American people can’t, either.”
So there you have it. The current President of the United States said that you shouldn’t trust the vaccine because of Donald Trump. He’ll now deny he said. He probably doesn’t remember saying it.
CNN, Stelter’s network, ran a story in September that Kamala Harris said she wouldn’t get the vaccine because of Trump, claiming he rushed through the development process to gain support from voters.
“I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump, and it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he’s talking about,” Harris said. “I will not take his word for it.”
“I’m not that confident, but my opinion doesn’t matter. I don’t believe the American people are that confident,” Cuomo said last October. “You’re going to say to the American people now, ‘Here’s a vaccine, it was new, it was done quickly, but trust this federal administration and their health administration that it’s safe’? We’re not 100 percent sure of the consequences? I think it’s going to be a very skeptical American public about taking the vaccine, and they should be!”
We know Joe Biden is known for plagiarism, which is using someone else’s work and actively or passively claiming it to be your own. Biden plagiarized in school and later as a politician said it was not malevolent. As if that makes it okay. He also plagiarized a speech made by a British politician and fortunately for him said a British politician is a bonehead who said “Joe’s an honest guy,” and followed up with “If Trump had done it, I would know that he was lying.” Again, the Biden camp said it was unintentional or Joe forgot to give credit to the Brit, even though no one has ever done so in how Biden plagiarized his words. Biden made Neil Kinnock’s words personal to his own life, and no one would give credit in a scenario like that, because doing so would have invalidated Biden’s lies.
First, Joe Biden is not an honest guy by any stretch of the imagination, and second, had Trump “accidentally” plagiarized someone’s speech, he would have acknowledged it and apologized profusely. How could the moronic British politician have known how Trump would have reacted when Trump never plagiarized anyone?
Dr. Moncef Slaoui, who was a chief scientific adviser to Trump’s Operation Warp Speed panel, has said that 90 percent of President Joe Biden’s vaccine rollout plan is the same plan as the previous administration’s to vaccinating US citizens against coronavirus. Biden is apparently taking credit for someone else’s work yet again.
During an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” host Margaret Brenna brought up allegations made by Biden, who said the Trump administration didn’t secure enough vaccine doses when he took office. In reality, Trump had ordered about 800 million doses enough to vaccinate about 450 million people given that some would require double doses. And remember, we only have about 328 million people.
“Just over four weeks ago, America had no real plan to vaccinate most of the country. My predecessor — as my mother would say, ‘God love him’ — failed to order enough vaccines, failed to mobilize the effort to administer the shots, failed to set up vaccine centers,” Biden said on Feb. 21. “That changed the moment we took office.”
Slaoui responded to Biden’s assertions, “I think that’s a very negative description of the reality. I do think that we had plans, and in fact, 90% of what’s happening now is the plan that we had.
“Of course the first thing was to accelerate the development of the vaccine,” Slaoui said. “We contracted specifically 100 million doses of vaccine, but also built into the contract options to acquire more vaccines once we knew they are effective. And the plan was to order more vaccines when- when we knew they are more effective. So I think what’s happening is right. But I think what’s happening is, frankly, what was the plan. Substantially what was the plan.”
Like any other manufacturing operation as you work through the models being used to manufacture something, over time you work out the kinks in the system and improve the efficiency of the effort. This happens with any manufacturing including building cars, furniture, and yes, vaccines.
Slaoui noted that the Trump administration didn’t plan on using sports arenas as vaccination sites and hadn’t discussed using the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as part of their vaccine distribution strategy. Well, whoopty flipping Ding! The Biden people came up with someone unique, but that doesn’t give the Biden administration license to lie about the previous administration’s achievements. How petty do Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have to be to refuse to give Donald Trump and his administration any credit for their efforts to bring three and very soon four coronavirus vaccinations to market in under a year?
Slaoui did point out however that Operation Warp Speed laid out the vital groundwork to use health care centers and pharmacies, which he said is where “the bulk of vaccine distribution is happening.” In other words, by using a capitalist system already in place at places like CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens pharmacies that already do vaccinations and flu shots, etc., there was no need to push for large arenas to do mass vaccinations which is what communist politician systems would probably come up with.
Slaoui mentioned the Trump administration had an original plan of having “most of adult Americans over the age of 18 that want to be vaccinated will have been vaccinated” by June.
In December, which correct me if I’m wrong came before the Biden administration became a thing, Slaoui told the Washington Post, “Hopefully by the middle of the year, I hope most Americans will have been immunized, which means the level of hesitancy that exists currently will have been decreased because people will have learned more information … about the vaccine.” He added that the Trump administration “should have this pandemic under control in the second half of 2021.”
Another lie to buy new ministration went around with was that during the transition the trump people were not cooperating with the Biden transition team. Vice President Kamala Harris lied when she told a reporter that the Biden administration had to start from scratch because the Trump administration left them empty-handed, and if we had an honest news media, the reporters would have countered by asking then how were there over 30 million Americans vaccinated by the day Joe Biden was inaugurated. The Trump administration was already underway to reach Biden’s goal of 100 million Americans vaccinated in his first 100 days. The Biden administration has since squandered that hard work done by the previous administration.
Slaoui, who previously ran the GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccine division, acknowledged that the Trump administration was in negotiations with Merck to use their facilities for “pandemic purposes.”
Brennan never acknowledged the achievements Slaoui mentioned, but instead asked if there were any flaws in Operation Warp Speed.
“I think there were two areas for me that are key lessons to learn in terms of how things should have been done differently,” he replied. “One is on the communication, and I think we have failed to communicate the fact that vaccine doses availability is going to be, you know, slow over time because- because we went so fast. There is no stock of vaccine. It was impossible to have enough vaccine doses quickly enough compared to the expectations. So we were unable, as we communicated in the month of November and December and January, to- to manage the expectation.”
“And I think the second thing is indeed, in the actual immunization, the approach taken was a philosophical approach that was frankly part of what the previous administration philosophy is, which is the federal government is going to provide vaccine,” he continued. “The states should be accountable for actually immunizing. And that’s- that’s the principle on which we have worked. Clearly, there was a need for the states to actually learn, which they did in reality. And that’s how improvements are happening now and also for the central government to participate in that learning process and accelerate it.”
Slaoui said the politicization of the coronavirus pandemic and the COVID-19 vaccine rollout has been a “big mistake” by some.
“I do believe that it’s a mistake to politicize a health issue. It’s a big mistake,” Slaoui said. “Many people probably have died or suffered because the whole situation became so political that, you know, emotions overtook rationality.”
“I’m very concerned, very concerned that for political motivation, people decide to actually place themselves and the people around them in harms’ way by refusing to be vaccinated,” he added. “I think- I think we need to do every effort we can to explain to people that vaccines have nothing to do with politics. These vaccines are safe. They are highly effective. They’re going to help them protect themselves and protect the people around them from the spread of this virus and critically from the potential appearance of new variants.”
President Joe Biden gave a speech on Thursday where he either lied about the last administration concerning handling the COVID-19 pandemic or he outright took credit for things the Trump administration did from having advanced therapeutics to now three vaccines all done in record time.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki recently responded to a question of whether or not the Biden White House will give any credit to Donald Trump for vaccines saying that the Biden administration does not believe anyone should be given credit after allowing 500,000 deaths to occur.
The level of disrespect the Democrats have shown to Trump is insufferable and it is especially unbearable since he was the greatest president of our lifetime.
Not everyone in the Biden administration feels the same way.
On Thursday prior to Biden’s speech, President Biden’s White House senior adviser for COVID-19 acknowledged that former President Donald Trump and the Trump administration deserve credit for the creation and the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines under Operation Warp Speed.
Andy Slavitt said he “absolutely” would tip his hat to them for their achievements in such a short time for something that was so needed at the time.
During an appearance on Fox News, Slavvit told Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino he was grateful for efforts that were made to get the vaccines done before Biden stole the White House saying, “I would absolutely tip my hat” when Hemmer asked him about giving credit for the success of Operation Warp Speed.
“This is a scientific process that actually began more than a decade ago with scientists inside the NIH…creating this mRNA vaccine,” Slavitt said.
He added, “I think the Trump administration made sure that we got — in record time — a vaccine up and out. That’s a great thing and something we should all be excited about.”
Hemmer then asked Slavitt why other members of the Biden administration “were talking about the shelves being empty,” noting, “on inauguration day, you had what. 1.5 million shots in the arms of Americans.”
In fact, before Trump left office he ordered from all of the vaccine makers enough doses to vaccinate 400 million people. Joe Biden lied Thursday night when he told the American people that there weren’t enough doses of vaccine ordered when he came into office.
“When I came into office, the prior administration had contracted for not nearly enough vaccine to cover adults in America,” Biden lied. “We rectified that.”
The Biden administration has previously said that the Trump administration left them “a mess” on Covid vaccination and President Joe Biden himself called Trump’s vaccine rollout in the early days a “dismal failure.”
Last month, Vice President Kamala Harris lied to Axios saying that the Biden administration had to start from “scratch,” a claim Dr. Anthony Fauci dismissed weeks before when he said “we certainly are not starting from scratch” on vaccine distribution.
Slavitt was also asked if Biden was going to give Trump any credit at all for his role in the vaccine rollout when Biden was to lie to the nation Thursday night.
“He will try to look forward and talk about the commitments that he has made and that we’ve got to make to getting the country vaccinated, to getting people back up and standing,” Slavitt replied. “Our view is there really are no bad guys here. We are going to succeed together or we are going to fail together.”
In other words, no, and Biden did not. In fact, he lied about many things and took credit for many things that happened under the Trump administration.
Even though President Joe Biden said this week that the United States is going to have enough COVID-19 vaccines by the end of the summer to vaccinate 300 million Americans, he told the American people that they’re going to have to wear face masks until at least 2022.
It’s interesting that I find myself thinking that if President Donald Trump had said that I would have believed him because through four years of his administration he has demonstrated that he delivers on his promises. With Biden, however, I’m back to tossing that promise on the steaming pile of horse manure, because his administration already admitted they were having problems getting a hundred million people vaccinated in the first 100 days, and that was after the Trump administration had already vaccinated 30 million Americans by the time Biden was inaugurated.
This week, Biden visited the National Institutes of Health complex in Bethesda, Maryland, and during a news conference with Dr. Anthony The Fouch Fauci and NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins, Biden told Americans he was breaking his original commitment and that he is now ordering that people wear masks for the rest of the year.
“I had a little discussion with my friends behind me, Dr. Collins and Dr. Fauci, about whether or not I should take my mask off, and the truth is, although we’re more than 10 feet away, I think it’s important that I not,” Biden said.
It’s about control.
“It’s critically important the message, and I realize I’m speaking to a vast majority, at least, I hope I am, of the folks out here at NIH,” he stated. “You know that wearing this mask through the next year here can save lives, a significant number of lives.
“We lost over 100,000 — 100,000 of our fellow citizens,” Biden said. “We’re on track to cross 500,000 dead Americans this next month.”
“The new strains emerging create immense challenges, and masking is still the easiest thing to do to save lives,” he asserted. “But we need everyone to mask up.
“I know it’s a pain in the neck, but it’s a patriotic responsibility,” he said. “We’re in the middle of a war with this virus. It’s a patriotic responsibility — not only if you care about your family if you care about your fellow Americans.”
This for a virus that has a 99 percent survival rate.
Biden said that the federal government signed the final contracts for 100 million more Moderna and 100 million more Pfizer vaccines. He then lied and said, “That means we’re now on track to have enough supply for 300 million Americans by the end of July.”
No journalist, and I do mean NO JOURNALIST, including the ones who live in those little mud huts will dare to ask the Emporer why he missed his goal of 300 million Americans vaccinated by July when July comes. Maybe like the Obama administration when it came to reporting unemployment numbers, they’ll just make it up.
Biden said that the government “provided $3 billion to 37 states and territories and tribes to bolster existing vaccination centers and create more of the centers to administer where we administer the vaccine.”
Biden promised back in December that he would only ask for 100 days for Americans to wear a mask. At the time I wondered if it was because he lived in his basement throughout the entire campaign of 2020 that he didn’t know that we have been wearing masks all year long and they did absolutely nothing to stop the spread of the pandemic virus.
“On the first day I’m inaugurated, I’m going to ask the public for 100 days to mask,” Biden said on December 3rd. “Just 100 days to mask, not forever, just 100 days. And I think we’ll see a significant reduction.”
April 30, 2021, will be 100 days after Biden’s inauguration that took place on January 20.
Fauci just moved shifted the timeline of when the US could reach the state of herd immunity. Back in December, Fauci said the US could reach herd immunity by summer if the majority of Americans were vaccinated by the second quarter of 2021.
Fauci walked back his timeline last Sunday, saying it would be “very difficult” to achieve herd immunity before the end of the summer. Who got to him? Was it the Big Guy himself? Was it the Communist Chinese Party? Who got to Fauci to change his tune?
Biden’s COVID team is now saying the “US may not reach herd immunity until Thanksgiving or even the start of winter.”
Democrat Joe Biden and his administration, including Anthony Fauci, are accustomed to great power and are apparently on a new power grab, deciding overnight that, after going back and forth on their “Pandemic plans,” a decision has been made about vaccinating American children. Just like that, they have decided, and Americans will learn about it in the media.
MSNBC reported on Monday, “COVID cases are plateauing, which is good news, and the vaccine is on the way—but there may be darker days to come. New COVID variants are proving more transmissible—one, in fact, can reinfect you even after you’ve had COVID. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, appeared last night on CNN’s The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer to issue a warning—and sage advice about how to stay safe.”
FAUCI CHANGES HIS MIND AGAIN
After laying out the demands that people will have to all be vaccinated, the story comes out that their plans will include children.
On CNN Fauci said, that although things are getting better and children do not really face dangers, “It is conceivable that things could get a little worse. What we’re starting to see, which is a good sign, is that we’re starting to see a plateauing of the numbers of cases, which will always be followed by a diminution and a plateauing, and then ultimately a diminution of hospitalizations as well as deaths.”
In other words, this whole thing is never-ending, and they will just continue to grab power without the consent of the people.
Monday night, a new report from Yahoo was published about Fauci and his new plans for the new Covid:
“As the Biden administration continues its push to vaccinate millions of Americans before COVID-19 mutates further, health experts and drug manufacturers have begun focusing their attention on inoculating children in the hopes of surpassing the herd immunity threshold for the virus.
“Hopefully, by the time we get to the late spring, early summer, we will have children being able to be vaccinated according to the FDA’s guidance,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said last week.
While children are less likely than adults to develop severe illness from COVID-19, they are known to contract and spread the disease asymptomatically. Fauci has estimated that the herd immunity threshold for COVID-19 is between 70 percent and 85 percent of the population, meaning that those vaccinated or exposed to the virus reaches a high enough level to prevent its further spread. Given that almost a quarter of the U.S. population is under the age of 18 achieving herd immunity will require that at least some children be vaccinated.
As of Feb. 1, over 31 million Americans, most over the age of 65, had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. In the coming weeks, the vaccine rollout is expected to extend beyond health care workers and the elderly, yet neither of the two vaccines has yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for children. Pfizer’s vaccine has been cleared for people 16 years and older, while Moderna’s is approved for those 18 years or older.
Both companies have started trials for children as young as 12, but Moderna has struggled to find enough young participants. Yahoo News Medical Contributor Dr. Kavita Patel explains the need for trials in children younger than 18 and 16. “Many of the doses of vaccines that we use in a childhood age population are not as strong or are at a different dosage than what we might use in adults and especially the elderly,” Patel said. “Plus, we do need to make sure that the two-dose approach is still necessary.”
Health care workers are chiming in after a nurse from San Diego tested positive for COVID-19 over a week after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine made by Pfizer.
On December 18, Matthew W, an ER nurse at two separate hospitals, posted on Facebook about getting the Pfizer vaccine earlier that day. He had reported that his arm was sore for about a day or so, but he didn’t get any other side effects.
“Got my Covid vaccine! The 15 minutes afterward sitting around with a bunch of others while health care workers asked us how we felt made me think of an opium den. I’ll report back if I start to grow a third arm,” Matthew wrote.
However, on Christmas Eve, about six days later, he had ended a shift in the COVID-19 unit when he suddenly began feeling sick. He reported he had the chills and later felt fatigue and had muscle aches.
He got through Christmas day, but the day after he drove to a drive up hospital testing site and learned that he had tested positive for coronavirus.
“It’s not unexpected at all. If you work through the numbers, this is exactly what we’d expect to happen if someone was exposed,” said Dr. Christian Ramers, who servers as an infectious disease specialist with Family Health Centers of San Diego. Dr. Ramers also serves on a clinical advisory panel for the vaccine rollout for the county.
Dr. Ramers noted that the RN could have gotten infected prior to getting the vaccine since the incubation period could be as long as two weeks. He added that if the nurse got the virus after receiving the vaccine, it can still make sense with everything we now know.
“We know from the vaccine clinical trials that it’s going to take about 10 to 14 days for you to start to develop protection from the vaccine,” Dr. Ramers said.
Pfizer vaccine regulators have discovered the best immunity against COVID-19 is found about seven days after the second dose, which you get three weeks after the first dose. This means there’s a distinct possibility that someone who got the vaccine could still get infected with the virus during that time period.
All patients require two doses of the vaccine to achieve their immunity.
The doctor mentioned that he knows of several other local cases in which other health care workers were infected around the time they received their vaccine, and pointed out that the cases he’s familiar with all demonstrate that results aren’t ever immediate.
“That first dose we think gives you somewhere around 50%, and you need that second dose to get up to 95%,” said Dr. Ramers.
Matthew said he felt better since his symptoms appeared last week.
The Trump administration’s goal to vaccinate the majority of the US population in the first half of next year has been harmed by the slow rollout. According to a new report, at the current rate hitting that number could take close to 10 years to reach. And since people no longer believe the news, the Democrats, or the deep state, we have no way of knowing if that information is valid or not.
At the current rate, this means more than three million Americans will have to received vaccinations daily in order to meet the government’s June deadline.
Dr. Ramers believes Matthew’s experience dictates that even with the vaccines, this pandemic isn’t going to turn around instantly.
“You hear health practitioners being very optimistic about it being the beginning of the end, but it’s going to be a slow roll, weeks to months as we roll out the vaccine,” Dr. Ramers added.
Matthew said he’s feeling a lot better since Christmas Day when his symptoms had reached a peak, but he also said he still feels tired. That’s to be expected, but we hope he fully recovers.
A very large database of close to two million registered Chinese Communist Party members was leaked, allowing the world to see a remarkable view of the structure of how China can penetrate Western businesses and academia in the US, the United Kingdom, and even Australia.
Folks, this list will let us know how many agents of the Chinese government are infiltrated inside other governments. I think they should all be systematically removed from any positions they hold in the West. This isn’t diplomacy we’re talking about. This is China’s method of taking over the world economically and even militarily. We already know they bought the Biden crime family, but how many other prominent people in Western governments have the Communist Chinese Party purchased?
The troubling leak was disclosed by Sky News Australia, who reported that the database breach “lifts the lid on how the party operates under President and Chairman Xi Jinping.”
“Communist party branches have been set up inside western companies, allowing the infiltration of those companies by CCP members — who, if called on, are answerable directly to the communist party, to the Chairman, the president himself,” Sky News’ Sharri Markson said. “Along with the personal identifying details of 1.95 million communist party members, mostly from Shanghai, there are also the details of 79,000 communist party branches, many of them inside companies.”
“It is believed to be the first leak of its kind in the world,” Markson proclaimed.
“Detailed analysis” of the database leak revealed that there are 123 “party loyalists” employed at Pfizer and AstraZeneca, according to the Daily Mail. Both pharmaceutical behemoths are developing coronavirus vaccines. That’s not a good thing for us.
There were reportedly “hundreds” of Chinese Communist Party members who worked at “firms with defense industry interests” like Boeing and Rolls-Royce “employed hundreds of party members.”
We already know that a Chinese military contractor used Hunter Biden to purchase a strategically sensitive manufacturer in Michigan, a company called Henniges Automotive, by a company linked to Hunter along with a Chinese military contractor on an American watch list over its close ties to the People’s Liberation Army.
There were reportedly 600 Communist Chinese Party members working at 19 branches of British banks in 2016, banks like HSBC and Standard Chartered. according to the report, they even infiltrated British consulates and universities.
The data leak exposed the names, the date of birth, their positions in the communist party, their national identification number, and even their ethnicity. Some of the people on the list even have their phone numbers included.
The database breach took place in April of 2016. Chinses dissidents and whistleblowers allegedly pulled the data and leaked it on an instant messaging app called Telegram. I wonder how much the leaked database has been used to stop the infiltrations?
Markson added, “It is worth noting that there’s no suggestion that these members have committed espionage — but the concern is over whether Australia or these companies knew of the CCP members and if so have any steps been taken to protect their data and people.”
As we try to come to terms with the extent of communist Chinese influence over the Biden crime family, this leaked database of registered members of the Chinese Communist Party of people who have infiltrated Western governments and organizations comes with serious national-security implications. I’m concerned that if Joe Biden actually gets through to the Oval Office, he should be impeached immediately as he is an active national security threat by being in the back pocket of the Communist Chinese Party. Not a joke! Now, this is not my first rodeo, and I don’t expect Nancy Pelosi to do anything concerning getting rid of Biden, but in 2022, the Republicans have a great chance to take over the Congress, and they should remove him immediately. That is if the Democratic Party gets away with stealing the 2020 election. If they do, we may never have another legitimate election again.
