Britain’s transport secretary has warned that the COVID-19 vaccines being rolled out may not work properly against the mutant variant of coronavirus first found in South Africa. So, do we all get to be injected with another rushed vaccine?
We really all should have known this was coming. Now Big Pharma can force more concoctions in our arms and rake in billions of dollars in the process while people suffer the devastating side effects of these things.
Speaking on Friday to LBC Radio, British Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said there was concern amongst the scientific community as to whether the vaccines produced will offer protection against new virus strains, according to a report by RT. “The South African variant is worrying the experts because it may be that the vaccine doesn’t respond in the same way or doesn’t work in quite the same way,” Shapps said. “This South African variant – this is a very big concern for the scientists.”
According to a laboratory study conducted by the US drug maker Pfizer, their Covid-19 vaccine still demonstrates efficacy against a key mutation in the highly transmissible new variants of the coronavirus discovered in the UK and South Africa.
The study by Pfizer and scientists from the University of Texas Medical Branch, which is yet to be peer-reviewed, suggested that the vaccine was effective in neutralizing the virus with the so-called N501Y mutation of the spike protein. –RT
At least 1.3 million people across the United Kingdom have received their first dose of either Pfizer or AstraZeneca’s vaccine.
The country has big plans to immunize 13.9 million people before mid-February. The media insists infection rates are soaring in these winter months and lockdown measures are ineffective at containing the new “more transmissible” virus variants. An estimated 68 million people live in the UK.
It sure looks like someone is going to come up with yet another vaccine…
