re: #93 Hecuba’s daughter

Many of us are concerned that, due to the plans to develop this vaccine on such an accelerated schedule, the initial version may be neither safe nor effective, but designed solely to improve Trump’s re-election chances. Suppose a vaccine is released on October 15. Do you really believe that it’s a good idea to take it? It would not be surprising if the manufacturer is not liable for adverse side effects and if the government also refuses to accept any responsibility either.

The accelerated schedule is the same sort of schedule used for the Ebola vaccine which was developed.

The safety is probably not in question; companies have been making vaccines for a long time. They know what can safely go in a vaccine. That argument is FUD from antivaxxers.

As for it being released in time for the election as an October Surprise, most epidemiologists are pretty sure that no vaccine could be developed even within twelve months, simply because of what goes into researching a vaccine.

Pharma companies are largely protected from vaccine lawsuits because there is a very low profit margin on vaccines and vaccines are vital for public health. That doesn’t prevent a pharma company which put out a bad vaccine from being destroyed in a boycott.
