Vaccines Aren't A Light Switch But Developing Process, Says Doctor | Morning Joe | MSNBC


    1. Neither Biden or Trump should take credit for the vaccine, nor should anyone give them credit for its development.
      Did no one listen to this doctor?
      The vaccine was the accumulation of more than a decade of research into coronavirus, which by the way, was discovered more than 40years ago. if anyone wants to give credit, it needs to go to scientists and medical researchers, not any of our politicians. Besides, the medical community was already underway in the development of a covid-19 vaccine long before Trump’s operation” warped” speed was instituted, and without any additional government funding , so get off thegags back, this person’s facts may not be spot on, but neither are yours!

    2. @Captain Kirk oh so they been planning this for decades ?
      Funny how all of sudden it got released to hurt Trump. And democrats say it’s not a political weapon

  1. I’ll be honest, I’m not trying to be in the front of this line. What are the side effects? There are several different vaccines with various delivery processes. Hard to know which to trust, ESPECIALLY with this administration.

    1. Luckily there is no administration that has anything to do with the actual vaccine. They only take credit for it.

    2. @Mario Off-Topic I understand that but this administration will put pressure on the FDA and CDC to capitalize on the politics despite any risks to the public.

    3. Did you have any allergic reactions to regular flu vaccines so far? If you did, you should talk to your physician before taking the vaccination. Regarding this administration, all Trump wants is the credit. He’s not pushing people to take the vaccine. He’s still sports the idea that Covid is a regular flu 🙂

    4. @Steven DowFlu vaccines have been around for a while so I am not skeptical there. The fact that he wants credit is the issue. Has the vaccine truly been vetted? Is the first one necessarily the best one or is Trump pressuring the FDA and CDC to approve it so he can get credit? What’s the sample size? Is there one that works best for certain blood types? I need more information and don’t trust anything come from the Trump administration.

  2. I get the feeling that Dr. Hotez can flash a world class “I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed” look at the drop of a hat. I feel like I need to apologize to him for something. Anything.

    1. Still thinking of getting your vaccine? Spread and share this to anyone lining up to take the Covid vax!

      Brain-Damaged UK Victims of Swine Flu Vaccine to Get £60 Million Compensation

      Patients who suffered brain damage as a result of taking a swine flu vaccine are to receive multi-million-pound payouts from the UK government.

      The government is expected to receive a bill of approximately £60 million, with each of the 60 victims expected to receive about £1 million each.

      Peter Todd, a lawyer who represented many of the claimants, told the Sunday Times: “There has never been a case like this before. The victims of this vaccine have an incurable and lifelong condition and will require extensive medication.”

      Following the swine flu outbreak of 2009, about 60 million people, most of them children, received the vaccine.

      It was subsequently revealed that the vaccine, Pandemrix, can cause narcolepsy and cataplexy in about one in 16,000 people, and many more are expected to come forward with the symptoms.

      Across Europe, more than 800 children are so far known to have been made ill by the vaccine.

      Narcolepsy affects a person’s sleeping cycle, leaving them unable to sleep for more than 90 minutes at a time, and causing them to fall unconscious during the day. The condition damages mental function and memory, and can lead to hallucinations and mental illness.

      Cataplexy causes a person to lose consciousness when they are experiencing heightened emotion, including when they are laughing.

      The Pandemrix vaccine was manufactured by pharmaceuticals giant Glaxo Smith Kline, which refused to supply governments unless it was indemnified against any claim for damage caused. The company will pay the bill, and claim the money back from the government.

      “There’s no doubt in my mind whatsoever that Pandemrix increased the occurrence of narcolepsy onset in children in some countries – and probably in most countries,” Emmanuelle Mignot, a specialist in sleep disorder at Stanford University in the United States told Reuters.

      Mignot has been paid by GSK to research the effects of the drug.

      Among those affected are NHS medical staff, many of whom are now unable to do their jobs because of the symptoms brought on by the vaccine. They will be suing the government for millions in lost earnings.

      Note how Covid-19 will be offered to front line workers and NHS staff first…

      However, the vast majority of patients affected – around 80% – are children.

      Among them is Josh Hadfield, 8, from Somerset, who is on anti-narcolepsy drugs costing £15,000 a year to help him stay awake during the school day.

      “If you make him laugh, he collapses. His memory is shot. There is no cure. He says he wishes he hadn’t been born. I feel incredibly guilty about letting him have the vaccine,” said his mother Caroline Hadfield, 43.

      Despite a 2011 warning from the European Medicines Agency against using the vaccine on those under 20 and a study indicating a 13-fold heightened risk of narcolepsy in vaccinated children, GSK has refused to acknowledge a link.

      “Further research is needed to confirm what role the vaccine may have played in the development of narcolepsy in those affected,” the company said in a statement.

    2. @Darktolight You might have a point thinking about Donald Trump who seems like ‘vaccinating’ his own supporters to brain-damaging.

    3. @Darktolight

      You forgot to tell that the compinent of Pandemrix which caused the narcoleosi is found and that the vacvine is withdrawn from the market.

  3. this guy knows his business.
    the right man, at the right time, talking about the right subjects.
    good luck to you!

  4. Hi, MSNBC. Your title would be more accurate if “Evolving” replaced “Developing”. Still available for proofing. 🙂

  5. The ‘vaccine summit’ won’t change the fact that there will be an additional 10,000,000 cases and possibly another 100,000 deaths by Jan. 20th. Nor will it make Trump innocent. The vaccine distribution cannot dent the growth of this virus for another 3 mos. Trump and the Republican’s disinformation campaigns (no masks, no distancing) thru the spring and summer were negligent and caused this COVID explosion.

  6. Any vaccine is going to be crippled if it is deployed in a country full of anti-vaxers which has already shown itself unable to socially distance or mask-up. Pfizer needs to focus on countries which are already managing the pandemic successfully. Better for their reputation, and it will save more lives.

  7. The US does have precedence for distributing vaccination to a wide populace! It was done with the Salk vaccine for polio!

  8. Wow Georgia republicans you have already lost Republicans why risk your life to vote for someone who has already lost why not join the winning Democratic team and be American

  9. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is not a cure, it does not keep you from catching or carrying the virus, only keeps you from get super sick!.. Fact check it!

  10. If the ‘vaccine’ changes your DNA permanently that might explain the obsession with collecting peoples DNA years prior – point of reference – they can see how the vaccines changes your DNA over time
