    Mm…the US FDA is about to give full approval to the use of pfizer BioNtech vaccine. One less barrier to remove vaccine hesitancy. Also, it will pave the way for pfizer to market and sell to the general public (commercialization) just like other vaccines. Removes one key argument that the vaccine is experimental.

    edit: full approval was just given for 16 year old and up.

    Mm…side effect for me from pfizer: slight pain (2/10 pain scale) and swelling/ redness on the injection site. Also, an itchy rash on my left leg. Small area. Other than that, I seem to be okay. I expect the side effects will be worse/pronounced once I get the 2nd jab.

    ohh man...

    From Aljazeera:

    “It’s true that Moderna has better protected people from infection, but the two vaccines are almost equivalent in effectiveness against severe disease,” said Professor Cyril Cohen, vice dean of life sciences at Bar Ilan university and a member of the health ministry’s coronavirus vaccine advisory board.

    “This is important so that our hospitals won’t be overwhelmed.”

    More than 1.3 million Israelis out of a population of 9.3 million have received three doses of Pfizer so far, but there have been “breakthroughs”: some people have become infected with coronavirus despite having received three shots.

    We would also see news headlines that some (paranoid) people will die of vaccine overdoses. Jeez. :rolleyes:

    ^I've seen YouTube tutorials on how to inject Gluta at home.

    I'm thinking of starting my own tutorial on how to inject Pfizer (Comirnaty) at home :ROFLMAO: $$$

    Not necessarily. As far back as May, there was an update from Pfizer and US FDA that once thawed, the Pfizer vaccine can be stored in a refrigerator temperature (2-8 C) for up to one month (link below). Shipments go directly to a cold-storage facility by a distributor such as Zuellig which should have those -80 C freezers, then the drugstores can get them provided that they use them within a month. Based on known public demand though, they would probably sell like pancakes and won't even last a few days.

    So the family of our ninang in our wedding had covid, & the husband just passed away. They were supposed to get vaccine shots but declined because it was Sinovac. They were able to get Moderna at a later date, & just had one shot pa lang. I wonder if the husband would still be alive had they chosen to push thru with Sinovac in the first place.
