Too indiscriminate and the wrong decision criteria, but "the theory is still sound."
do you suppose the military gets a different vaccine than the proletariat? like one that won't have them all keeling over when it's time to go "over the top"?

they prolly all get the placebo

Only raggedy-ass "insurrectionists" go over the top anymore. In a Jihadi Fighting Vehicle (Toyota pickup) with AK-47s and RPG-6s.

Today's military launches an attack by hitting "ENTER."

Good to see you, Merc. Happy New Year. Hope you and yours are well and prospering.

The premise is kind of weird - i thought we'd gotten over the stupid notion of trying to make sure nobody gets it. I thought we'd accepted that what we were really looking for is to make sure nobody got THAT sick and hospitalized (or dead), and then let nature take it's course. As long as it's just like a really nasty flu it's not much threat. So - why is this all about immunization again? there's no numbers on how effective it is in preventing serious illness or death? Isn't that what we care about most?
Medicago cuts ties with Philip Morris as WHO rejects plant-based COVID shot
Denied due to links with tobacco industry

Medicago Inc. severed ties with cigarette maker Philip Morris International Inc after the World Health Organization rejected the Canadian company’s COVID-19 vaccine, according to a tobacco control body.


Covifenz, the world’s first plant-based COVID vaccine, was jointly developed by Medicago, which is owned by Mitsubishi Chemical, Philip Morris and Glaxo. The Canadian government, which provided $173 million in funding for its development, has cleared it for use.


“Tobacco corporations, vaccines and governments don’t mix well and we applaud the expulsion of Philip Morris from the Medicago collaboration,” Les Hagen, the executive director of a not-for-profit organization ASH Canada, said in a statement Monday.


Medicago’s request for an emergency-use listing was denied earlier this year by the World Health Organization because of the links with tobacco industry.

“We are relieved that Canadian governments have washed their hands of this unethical and embarrassing collaboration with a tobacco giant,” Hagen said.
That is one of the stupidest things yet.

was recently talking to an antivaxxer I know, and she is convinced that many of us got a placebo. Her thought is that if you didn’t get sick from the jab it was a placebo, and if you got sick you are a Guinea pig.

U.S. FDA, CDC see early signal of Pfizer bivalent COVID shot's link to stroke

A safety monitoring system flagged that U.S. drugmaker Pfizer Inc and German partner BioNTech’s updated COVID-19 shot could be linked to a type of brain stroke in older adults, according to preliminary data analyzed by U.S. health authorities.


The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said on Friday that a CDC vaccine database had uncovered a possible safety issue in which people 65 and older were more likely to have an ischemic stroke 21 days after receiving the Pfizer/BioNTech bivalent shot, compared with days 22-44.


An ischemic stroke, also known as brain ischemia, is caused by blockages in arteries that carry blood to the brain.

The FDA and CDC said that other large studies, the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, other countries’ databases and Pfizer-BioNTech’s databases had not flagged this safety issue, adding that it requires more investigation.

“Although the totality of the data currently suggests that it is very unlikely that the signal in VSD (Vaccine Safety Datalink) represents a true clinical risk, we believe it is important to share this information with the public,” the health authorities said.


Pfizer and BioNTech said in a statement that they have been made aware of limited reports of ischemic strokes in people 65 and older following vaccination with their updated shot.

“Neither Pfizer and BioNTech nor the CDC or FDA have observed similar findings across numerous other monitoring systems in the U.S. and globally and there is no evidence to conclude that ischemic stroke is associated with the use of the companies’ COVID-19 vaccines,” the companies added.

This safety concern has not been identified with Moderna’s bivalent shot and both the CDC and FDA continue to recommend that everyone aged 6 months and older stay up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccination. (Reporting by Bhanvi Satija in Bengaluru; Editing by Devika Syamnath)

Did they already know it wasn’t working when they implemented segregation of the baptized from the heathens?
Probably knew some of it .certainty they knew masking and lockdowns were ineffective at best .
