I’m not touching this experimental vaccine with a 10-foot pole, but if I were to ever consider it I would certainly need to be convinced it was EFFECTIVE!
Looks like it can’t even promise that according to a recent report out of Michigan where over 200 people still contracted COVID and 3 died (!) …. after being fully vaccinated.
I can’t wait to see how they spin this one…
Take a look:
Complete utter brainwashed BS! Just what do they plan to do when one or several vaccinated come down with the virus on one of these ships? https://t.co/XjcaboJfN5

So, how is this experimental gene therapy working in the real world?

Here are more of the stunning details, from the Detroit News:
As many as 246 Michigan residents considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 were later diagnosed with the virus, and three have died, state officials confirmed Monday.
The cases were reported between Jan. 1 and March 31, and the 246 had a positive test 14 or more days after the last dose in the vaccine series, said Lynn Sutfin, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, in an email.
“Some of these individuals may ultimately be excluded from this list due to continuing to test positive from a recent infection prior to being fully vaccinated,” she said.
“These cases are undergoing further review to determine if they meet other CDC criteria for determination of potential breakthrough, including the absence of a positive antigen or PCR test less than 45 days prior to the post-vaccination positive test. In general, these persons have been more likely to be asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic compared with vaccinated persons.”
Brianne Campbell, 21, of South Lyon receives her vaccine shot from medical assistant Tiarra Brown at the walk-in clinic at the TFC Center in downtown Detroit on Monday.
The department had hospitalization data for 117 of the cases, but 129 were incomplete, she said.
“Of the 117 with hospitalization data entered, 11 were hospitalized, 103 were not hospitalized, and 3 are reported as unknown,” Sutfin said.
CNN confirms that about 7% of people who got infected after getting the jab required hospitalization, and that’s according to the CDC data:
About 5,800 people who have been vaccinated against coronavirus have become infected anyway, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tells CNN.
Some became seriously ill and 74 people died, the CDC said. It said 396 — 7% — of those who got infected after they were vaccinated required hospitalization.
This is the CDC’s first public accounting of breakthrough cases, and the agency is searching for patterns based on patient age and gender, location, type of vaccine, variants and other factors.
“So far, about 5,800 breakthrough cases have been reported to CDC. To date, no unexpected patterns have been identified in case demographics or vaccine characteristics,” the CDC told CNN via email.
About 77 million people in the US are fully vaccinated against coronavirus, according to a CNN analysis of CDC data. The CDC’s reports on breakthrough cases will lag day-to-day reports of vaccines given, so many, if not most, of those breakthrough cases will have happened weeks ago.
Nonetheless, the total represents a very small percentage of those who have been vaccinated.
Maybe that’s why the head of Pfizer has NOT personally gotten the vaccine yet….
You think he knows something?
Ding, ding, ding!
How about the producers?
Pfizer CEO, Albert Bourla, doesn’t want to ‘cut the line’
These people are so altruistic! https://t.co/HVruLrEkoe

Reminds me of Dr. Oz saying his family does NOT get the flu shot…but he definitely wants YOU to get one.
Here’s more on the oh-so-very-altruistic Pfizer CEO, from CNBC:
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla hasn’t received his company’s Covid-19 vaccine shot yet, saying Monday he and other executives will not “cut the line” as U.S. officials kick off a massive effort to distribute the vaccine across the country.
The vaccine, which Pfizer developed in partnership with Germany-based BioNTech, is the first approved for emergency use in the U.S. to prevent Covid-19. The Food and Drug Administration on Friday authorized the vaccine for use in people 16 and older, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday officially recommended its use.
However, there are limited doses available and as such, the CDC has recommended states prioritize health-care workers and long-term care residents for initial distribution.
While Bourla’s company developed the vaccine, he is not a frontline health-care worker himself. He said he’s also 59 and in relatively good health, so it’s not entirely appropriate for him to receive the vaccine before other people who need it more. If he was vaccinated on camera, he said it might help increase the public’s willingness to receive it, citing Pfizer’s internal research. But he emphasized that “none of the executives and board members will cut the line.”
Bourla also urged Americans to “trust science” and encouraged people to get vaccinated when appropriate, based on their age and occupation.
“This is a vaccine that was developed without cutting corners from a company with 171 years of credentials,” Bourla said Monday on “Squawk Box.” “This is a vaccine that was developed in the spotlight, in the daylight, with all the data being put in a server.”
Bourla’s comments come as the first deliveries of doses are set to arrive at more than 100 of the country’s 636 pre-determined distribution sites. Some frontline health-care workers are due to be vaccinated as soon as Monday morning and vaccination is set to begin among long-term care residents next week, according to Operation Warp Speed officials.
It’s a monumental logistical challenge. The federal government has partnered with UPS, FedEx, McKesson, CVS, Walgreens, among others, to help distribute the vaccine and actually administer it. But state immunization officials have warned that the so-called last-mile delivery of the vaccine will be the most challenging, and states are largely responsible for that effort. State officials have repeatedly called on the federal government to provide more funding to hasten the effort.
So let me get this straight.
If I get the vaccine, I still have to wear my mask.
I still can’t sit in a full church.
I still can’t eat in a full restaurant.
I have ABSOLUTELY no guarantee of not getting the virus.
I just might have an anaphylactic reaction.
I still could get COVID.
And if I do get COVID, there’s a 7 percent chance I might be hospitalized.
And a possibility that I might die.
Gee thanks, Dr. Fauci.
I really want that vaccine now.
