Taking No Chances

The Democrats and their powerful allies deployed a host of weapons and spent billions of dollars to assure a Joe Biden victory in the 2020 presidential election. Nearly everyone agrees that the coronavirus pandemic played a large role in the election outcome. This week Pfizer released the results of their joint vaccine with BioNTech, a week AFTER the presidential election. I am not alone in questioning the timing of the release. Had it been done BEFORE the election, the President may have been re-elected. Big Pharma and Wall Street have aligned themselves with the Democratic party and over 90% of corporate donations go to the Democratic party. As if the Democrats had not pulled enough dirty tricks and outright cheating to ensure their victory, here is yet one more example. Although Pfizer did not officially participate in the federal Operation Warp Speed and developed the vaccine (along with partner BioNTech) without federal assistance, they did accept $1.95 billion from the fed to produce 100 million doses of the vaccine. This was done to facilitate the distribution and administration of the vaccine once it receives Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval. Early analysis of the results demonstrated that individuals who received two injections of the vaccine three weeks apart experienced greater than 90% fewer cases of symptomatic COVID-19 than those who received a placebo injection. This surpassed initial projections that proposed a vaccine might only be 60% or 70% effective.  Although Pfizer’s results are very promising, they were from a total of 94 patients. In order to receive emergency use authorization (EUA) from the FDA it will be necessary to submit data on 164 patients and accumulate at least 60 days of safety data..

The Pfizer vaccine requires ultracold storage and necessitates a second dose which will require some logistical maneuvering and tracking of patients. Moderna’s vaccine is at a similar phase in testing as the Pfizer vaccine and has the advantage of not requiring ultracold storage. An important factor that is yet to be established with each of the vaccines is length of immunity. How strong for how long? That will ultimately be proven through long-term monitoring of patients who have received the vaccine over periods of months and years. By the time one or more vaccines has received FDA approval, production and distribution, President Biden will have been inaugurated and be in charge. Hopefully we will be allowed to receive the vaccine without more Democrat delays and/or government intervention. The Democrats are famously known for taxes and government bureaucracy!
