kinda fast huh?

operative words here, "in conjunction with Operation Warp Speed". Trump wants this to save his presidency. Wonder if it'll work. And how many people will die from this hastily created vaccine? And how will the numbers be skewed to show it is effective.

And don't get me wrong. I hope it works for suffering COVID patients. Yet I thought these vaccines took years to perfect after exhaustive trial and error

1. They are just starting phase 3 trial.

This vaccine development is actually behind the other 3 (Moderna, Pfizer, Oxford) that are already in phase 3 trials.

3. ok, but still kinda fast

to be putting humans in harm's way since down the road these vaccines can cause problems even as soon as a year out from inoculation. The usual time for judging safety and efficacy is longer I thought. I see the trump administration putting extreme pressure on these companies to save his p-rezidency.

2. So who will take these vaccines? Anti-vaxer COVID-hoaxer MAGATS?

Or Dems who see them as Trump-tainted?

I don't see a market for them until Biden comes in and cleans things up.

4. no doubt about what trump and GOP

will do, tout this vaccine as heaven-sent even if it kills numerous human beings. I trust nothing associated with the criminal-fascist organization running this country at this time.

5. No doubt.

He is desperate and hopes it will save his campaign even if it costs lives by being hastily delivered. He doesn't give a s$&% about lives.

7. A vaccine can't help anyone who is already suffering from COVID-19.

By definition, a vaccine is a preventative measure.



We need TREATMENTS for those who are already infected, and I hear very little about research into treatments (some, but not a lot).
