As Vaccine Science Makes Major Breakthroughs, Manufacturing Strains To Keep Up With Demand


  1. President Biden is sincere and genuine in his efforts to vaccinate people and save people from the virus. Truly his leadership is excellent.

    1. @V L rolling around a gold statue of a leader is pretty damned cultish lol get over it. It’s even described in the Bible as an activity of apostates, so whatever.

    2. @TheDiamond2009 The USA and EU wanted the prosecutor to be fired due to him being on Putin’s payroll . I agree that Hunter Biden just got the job because they thought it would gain them , however that ain’t illegal . Not even the Russians could cook up solid enough evidence that would hold in a court of law , ask Rudy he knows .

    3. It’s difficult to know what to believe, because there are different stories from different sources. I wouldn’t believe anything USA Today says, but by the same token I can’t necessarily believe sources on the other side.

      The more fundamental point is, regardless of legality, It seems clear that Joe used his position to secure a very well remunerated position for his son, who had no knowledge of the industry, and he also lied about meeting Burisma officials, which is all well documented and evidenced.

    1. @Bernie Simmons Johnson & Johnson single-shot vaccine 85% effective against severe COVID-19 disease. I think i also saw it was 100% effective against hospitalization and death. I’m just glad there’s more options

  2. Keep on top of quality control? The very last thing we need is trump’s propagandists fuelling the AntiVaxers with a contaminated batch or something? The need may be great, but mistakes are made, when the pressure is too high. Make sure people are keeping an eye on the ball?

    1. This whole thing is being mismanaged on a wide scale, you can’t get this shot anywhere on Long Island, New York (a top metro area in. America) every place is “fully booked”, there’s no waiting list either so you don’t know where you are on the waiting list to get it? All it takes is a simple waiting list, but no they have everyone running around like a chicken without a head trying to find this stuff. What a total complete mess if a delivery system.

  3. China and Russia are donating vaccines to poor countries. Reminds me of Wicked the musical. The “wicked” are the good, the “good” are the wicked.

    1. @TheDiamond2009 it may be true though we do not know yet, but US has been doing that for decades, still bombing Syria, Yemen starving, check out the New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, a semi-autobiographical book written by John Perkins, they follow with CIA assassinations, sanctions, coups and military invasions. This is why 15% world population owns 80% world resources.

    2. Gaza: An Inquest into Its Martyrdom
      by Norman G. Finkelstein
      Professor Finkelstein presents with careful study and solid evidence how US backs Israel in the killings, and he lost his job.

  4. This is exactly what happened with testing. First, it was reactants, then it was capacity, then it was the sterilized swabs and vials. Apparently, we learn nothing.

  5. It was a deliberate humiliation, just like the time the Chinese “forgot” to roll the flight steps up to Air Force One when Obama visited.

    1. @allabout perspective That’s horrible. Funeral businesses shouldn’t even exist..nor should any business profiting from death.

  6. Would be nice to see how this vaccine affects the fertility of both women and men… Sorry to bring science into this, but kind of a life decision. Thanks.

  7. Grading a chemical vaccine is very complicated and precise. We just can’t make enough of it by adding water to a batch of vaccine. Great care should be given in the manufacture of these new vaccines. There should not be any political or social pressure on the pharmaceutical companies to recklessly rush the manufacturing process. The results could be catastrophic.
