Default [Merged] How About Some Really Great News?

So, while y'all are bitching about Trump (WGAF) and Biden (WGAF), Pfizer and BioNTech have announced today that a Covid Vaccine they have developed is MORE THAN 90% EFFECTIVE.

The Dow has soared 1100 points to a new record.

Quote:
Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a former FDA commissioner, told CNBC the vaccine could be available in limited use as early as late December and widely available by the third quarter of 2021.

And in the latest poll only ~40% of Americans say they'll get it.

I'm not paying attention to polls. The whole system of polls are faulty. I'm pretty sure anyone who really needs a vaccine will get it. And anyway, only 60% of Americans got a regular flu vaccine in 2018-2019 and there was plenty to go around. So even if 50% of the people get the vaccine, the idea is to stop the spread.

It's still a couple of months away. By then, they should know of any safety issues.

That doesn't matter. If the vaccine is truly 90% effective (I have my doubts), and the government makes it free and widely available, all shut downs and mask wearing should stop within a few weeks. (but we all know they probably won't)

Damn right I'm not gonna be the first in line to take a brand new vaccine that was rushed through clinical trials at a record pace. I'll wait and see how many guinea pigs die before I decide.

They forced the Anthrax vaccine on us and nobody protested. Why should you be special?

Phred and MurraT will wear their masks until at least 2025. Can't be too safe.

Seriously, the mask mandates won't go away any time soon unfortunately. Porous cloth masks are magic and badly needed, until you sit down at a table in a restaurant, at which point you're magically protected by the table or something.

Anyone who listened to Trump and not the fake news, or Faucci, already knew this. Weird how this bombshell breakthrough came out JUST IN TIME for the election to be over. Why I remember just a week ago when people were saying this wasn't going to happen any time soon, because Orange Man's Warp Speed project was a failure.

What are the odds?

My Grandfather told me that he became allergic to strawberries during his stint in the US Army shortly after receiving all of the Inoculations prior to shipping out for Europe. (WW2, 332nd Engineers)

2, I think. I was also told that I had no choice on giving up my DNA. I avoided it until they threatened me with NJP.
