The world awaits the Second Coming.
I refer of course to the frantic haste to inject us all with some dubious concoction which is apparently going to save the planet from imminent destruction.
The first notice of the Coming was when a pharma announced a success rate of 90%. Wow! But then another pharma comes along and announces a success rate of 94.5%. Even bigger WOW! So the first pharma comes back and says they have looked at their figures again and their success rate is in fact 95%. And so the bidding continues. First past the post with the best bid stands to increase their coffers by many billions.
I’m not a doctor. Nor am I a biochemist or indeed any kind of an expert on vaccinations but I have a simple question.
I can understand how ploughing millions into rushed research with tens of thousands of tests can produce impressive results in a relatively short time. The numbers are collated and the success rate is calculated and so they announce that the vaccine is ready for public consumption. But my simple question is this – how can they possibly guarantee no long term side effects? It doesn’t matter how much they spend, or how intensive the research, long term side effects can only be discovered long term. You can’t rush time no matter how hard you try.
Naturally the Great Unwashed are going to queue in their millions for their little injections. The world will rejoice. Alleluia! Maybe a few will drop dead from some allergic reaction, but that’s a small price to pay to save the human race [unless of course you’re one of the few].
I’m in one of the chosen few on account of my age which places me near the top of the queue. Doubtless Doc will drop by some evening and insist that we both have The Jab. Being the gentleman that I am I shall insist he does Herself first.
If she shows no reaction after a while then maybe I’ll think about having a jab myself.
