Moderna Co-Founder On New Vaccines And Profiting During The Pandemic | The Beat With Ari Melber

    1. Check out Oxford AstraZeneca. There has been no data to presume it is not as good as the others, regardless of the propaganda. But it is the only non profit vaccine, with no patent so can be made in other countries for themselves. Governments are even coming out with propaganda. All about money. We are all in this together. But the richest will get richer.

  1. Well done! He didn’t mention Oxford AstraZenera. Two vaccines, but only needs normal freezing temperatures. Funded by UK government, in Oxford university with AstraZenera. None profiting, no patent. Three dollars for the two shots, factories opening all over the world, vaccines donated all over the world. This is a pandemic yet big pharmacies justifying the billions they are making on this. Well done America and Germany for giving them a patent. They are 25 to 36 dollars for the two shots. Shame on them.

    1. Are you suggesting that these companies should just give the stuff away for free?
      Germany and France have recommended that the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine NOT be used on older patients – but it is the older population who are most at risk from Covid, so it seems reasonable to focus on those vaccines which CAN be taken by the most at-risk people.

    2. @omi god I have been following a guy called Dr John Campbell. Massive difference between non profit and Billions, but yep you should support the pharmaceutical companies. There is no proven data regards to opinions thrown around, check the data and sources. We are all in this together.

  2. I don’t know, 18 billion seems like too much money. I like this company, and I want them to succeed but I don’t want to see them turn into another greedy pharmaceutical company.

    1. Why not? If I make a product that the world wants, I should be able to make as much money selling it as the market will bear. Businesses are not charities.

    1. @omi god What gets me about these eugenicists is that they want to cleanse the world of other human beings, yet they don’t want to cleanse the world of themselves.

  3. “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever. The moral that is to be drawn from this dangerous nightmare situation is a very simple one; don’t let it happen, it depends on you.”- George Orwell.

  4. What gets me about these eugenicists is that they want to cleanse the world of other human beings, yet they don’t want to cleanse the world of themselves.

  5. Trying to make something out of nothing, Ari. Why shouldn’t they make billions? How much is a life worth? The vaccines are saving lives.
