Profiteers gonna profiteer. I remember when medical science was used to ELIMINATE diseases, like Polio and Smallpox. Now they just monetize :treatments" to prolong the patients ability to pay for as long as possible.

To be clear...this vaccine isn't "different" from others other than the delivery method. The smallpox and polio vaccines weren't any more efficient - we just didn't have mass disinformation networks throwing FUD into the equation. Vaccines prep your immune system to know how to fight an infection.

I'm of the opinion that had vaccines been adopted en masse without the ridiculous conspiratorial bullshit, many if not most of the new variants wouldn't have had the opportunity to mutate into existence.

Obviously the fact that a profit motive exists is bullshit and needs to be removed, but let's not act like an efficacy below 100% (which literally no other vaccine ever has had) means that this necessitates some kind of conspiracy to prolong profit without actual evidence to support such a claim.

What do you mean? Like, vaccinating the whole global population in less than two months? Has that ever been possible?

Same thing is going to happen to these vaccines as before with the Bird and Swine flu vaccinnes. They are going to end up somewhere in Atlanta Georgia USA not to be used because of overstock. Then you will see them available for free at every chain store like CVS, Walgreens, Walmart. History repeats itself. I guess I lived too long and started noticing.
