How can they stop a rollout of a vaccine on nearly no data (when the world and the pandemic continues) but not understand the same principle for closing borders early? Is there incentive to block certain vaccines?
I am trying very hard to have faith that there was a good reason for this decision, and the CDC/FDA did not withdraw one of the vaccines over such a small number of reported adverse reactions. Because if that’s truly all there is to the story, the harm they will do in giving fuel to anti-vax skepticism will outweigh any good they might do by studying these reactions.
I’d gladly take the J&J vaccine — the risks are so tiny. If nothing else, just reserve that one for men.
Can’t give the anti-vaxxers an inch. And this will probably cost an extra 20,000-40,000 lives, and possibly far more.
