I have already seen articles describing folks travelling to Saudi Arabia on the promise of a black market vaccination for a mere "$10,000 USD".
Somehow I am reluctant to let any black marketer sell me any injection on a "promise" of a result. Why counterfeit coins or currency, when drugs are so much easier to counterfeit?
The Moderna vaccine looks like 1/2 cc of water in a syringe - I know this, because that is what mine looked like last Thursday, which was provided by my local county health department, at no charge to me, and administered by a retired Registered Nurse volunteer. I have had no significant symptoms other than minor tenderness at the site of injection which lasted only about 48 hours.
In this context it is worth considering this article. Who really is responsible for creating safe, and very effective, vaccines in only 10 months? Despite Dr Fauci's estimate that it might take 18 months to four years or more.
There are also a Russian vaccine and a Chinese vaccine being used in several nations around the world. These vaccines have no received approval by the FDA, for use in the USA, yet; nor are they likely too, I hesitate to point out.
As for vaccinating the world, that is on the way too, beginning this spring, I suspect.
I worked for Eli Lilly for two full summers while I was in school, so I spent one summer working out of doors in their veterinary medicine facillity and their viral labs, and one summer as an intern, in downtown Indianapolis, in their gastrointestinal biochemical research lab.
I never met a single Lilly employee who didn't display the highest regard for the importance and veracity of their companies products. These were line employees, not corporate officers, and they all took their tasks very seriously, and understood the importance of the purity of their products to the world at large.... They knew their family members, or their neighbors, might one day be treated with drugs they, themselves, helped manufacture, or create, and they carried that trust with them every day. The character and credibility of Eli Lilly is their real product, not a single drug.
It is currently fashionable by some folks to believe all corporations are vile actors, yet corporations are like individuals. They deserve to be evaluated on the basis of their character and value to society, not by being a "member of a tribe".
All I really know, is that successful vaccination is going to be required to really get this pandemic rolled up, and the sooner the better.
Johnsons and Johnson and AstraZenica vaccine will be approved within a couple weeks....
