What We Need to Know About Vaccines:

  Many of the pharmaceutical companies researching potential coronavirus vaccines are using old (DNA) methods. They take a proverbial pinch of the virus and infect your immune system at a very low and slow rate, allowing your body the time it needs to build up a natural immunological resistance to the illness. But developing those types of vaccines is a slow and arduous process, and the current leaders in the race to mass global vaccination are pharmaceutical companies using a radical new method that has never been tried before: mRNA.
  • mRNA stands for messenger ribonucleic acid, which is a molecule in cells that carries codes from DNA to make proteins
  • An mRNA vaccine encodes proteins of a virus, which is inserted into a cell to trigger an immune response and create antibodies (hack the cells in your body in order to make them into drug factories; alter the function of your DNA in your body)
  • There has never been a successful mRNA vaccine before, but studies show they can elicit immunity against flu, Zika, rabies and coronavirus
  • mRNA vaccines are non-infectious and could be produced quickly at large scale
  • mRNA vaccines are considered risky because the technology is still new
  • Many other vaccines, such as the flu vaccine, are egg-based, cell-based, or synthetic
  • mRNA vaccines are said to work by breaking in two part of your DNA, through what is said to be a natural process, then combined with the experimental mRNA in a way that seems esoteric to many people. It's almost impossible to imagine such a process taking place in one's own vulnerable biological system, in one's DNA, the most precious building blocks of life that define our very existence. After a preprogramed strand of mRNA has merged with a naturally severed part of our DNA, it will "request" the production of a protein that should help trigger our immune system. In theory, this should boost our immune system and aid in the mass production of the proteins necessary to successfully fight the specific illness. The inserted messenger-RNA (thus, mRNA) should be relatively easy to design and program as long as the scientists involved have the genetic coding for the infection it is to fight. In this case, the necessary data was released in January 2020 by the Chinese.


  • mRNA vaccines is a potential treatment for almost every human illness on earth. Opening this mRNA floodgate would mean normalising regular vaccinations for nearly every imaginable ailment. In the best-case scenario, you could be vaccinated against cancer, heart disease, diabetes, dementia and Alzheimer's, and any other human ailment that derives from a fault in your DNA. In the worst-case scenario, you could be left dead or crippled like Pfizer's victims in its experiments on Nigerian children during the late 1990s. (Pfizer eventually settled the case for $75 million on condition that it would not be held responsible for its actions.) See Pfizer's record here.

  • Pfizer and Moderna have stated that their mRNA vaccines need to be kept at -70° C and -20° C, respectively, which is a significant logistical challenge. Without these extremely cold temperatures, the mRNA and combined nanoparticles will lose their integrity. There are no studies on the effect of poorly stored mRNA vaccines on the human body. In comparison, DNA vaccines are much easier to transport and store as they are much more stable molecules.

  As of January, 2020, the leading pharmaceutical company creating mRNA drugs was Moderna, a company funded by the Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Moderna has produced an mRNA vaccine against Covid-19, which it claims is about 95% effective.

  The scandal-ridden Pfizer pharma company has teamed up with BioNTech, a small German company, (which received funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2019) to produce an mRNA drug to compete with Moderna. Pfizer, in anticipation of the seemingly imminent and assured approval of their vaccine candidate, has already been manufacturing hundreds of millions of doses of its vaccine for weeks and has received praise from governments and mainstream media alike for its self-reported claims that its vaccine is 90 percent effective. The US government has already agreed to pay Pfizer and BioNTech some $2 billion for 100 million doses of the vaccine, and the companies have struck similar deals with other institutions and companies.

  Pfizer has applied for emergency-use approval from the FDA, which would allow for almost immediate use of vaccines.

  What we have NOT been told by either Pfizer or Moderna is the long-term effects of either of their drugs! We need to have this information as soon as possible to make a decision on whether to use these drugs or not.

  One of China's top state-backed vaccine makers--the state-owned Sinopharm--claimed that roughly one million Chinese have already received their COVID-19 vaccine under extremely broad emergency-use criteria. A study published earlier in November, 2020, in the Lancet showed that the vaccine produced by Sinovac produced an immune response to the virus, though it wasn't as strong as the response seen in patients who received the American mRNA vaccines.

  US Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said Wednesday that authorization and distribution of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines could start within weeks, and that the US would have 40 million doses of the two vaccines ready to go by the end of the year.


Questions:
  • Would testing (wihout vaccinations) be a better solution to the Covid-19 challenge?
  • COVID has been mutating and scientists assure us that it will keep mutating. So what happens if the vaccines that are being developed end up being completely useless against new mutant strains of the virus? Would that put us all the way back to square one (or even worse)?
  • What happens if one of these new strains become dominant in the world?
    • In Denmark, a new strain of COVID is being passed to humans from minks
    • South Australia is battling a new strain of COVID-19 that is spreading up to five times quicker than the old strain
  • Is the Duke Global Health Innovation Center estimate that there won't be enough vaccines to cover the world's population until 2024 correct?
  • Would it be safer for the FDA not to allow emergency-use approval and require that more testing be carried out before mRNA vaccines are used?
