  • Ooo..all roads lead to Bihar..the migrant workers walked and walked..and now they will have vaccine,that too for free..wow..just wow..achhe din..tak din..aa..din..

  • In 5 to 10 years you will be hearing "If you received the vaccine during the panademic call 1-800-baddrug".

  • What the hell? so you are calculated by the people who didn't get vaccinated and got covid? What kind of logic is this?

  • Rasicosy vs efficacy

  • Pfizer vaccine has not been tested by the FDA. One week observations after the second dose is not enough time. Let the FDA follow its own protocol/procedure. Moreover this vaccine has to be stored at minus 74 degrees Fahrenheit. Very few hospitals in the USA have such facilities...what to talk of underdeveloped countries. I realize Americans want to peddle the vaccine of an American Company... Pfizer.. Safety is more important than Cash. I would not trust this vaccine till it is observed and cleared by the FDA... For its safety and effectiveness. The Oldman 😊 Former Pakistan Air Force 🇵🇰

    • If a vaccine can be produced having a facility or something to store and minus 74degree shouldn't be that difficult , we are loosing thousands of people in days we need this soon

    • Zulqadar Rashid I completely agree with you on all the these important points you are making!!!!!

  • Means nothing. It would take a year to reach to common man, but Bihar will get it first and for free

    • @Aayam Ankan it's not about Khan's and bacchan it's the people with power and money

    • @Just Joking ya but this country only cares for khan's and Bachchan's.

    • @Aayam Ankan politicians can afford it too, business Giants can too. Only left ever is the common man

    • who cares fir the common man? if bollywood can afford it, good enough!!

    • Good joke keep it up

  • Very informative

    • So,if gene sequence calibration electron micrographs do NOT show purified particles claimed to be viral. And "alleged" mutations NOT isolated How can a vaccine even be produced? The very definitions criteria prepared from the causative agent synthetic substitute -can NOT be met- - Exemption claim Violates the Nuremberg Code (1948) and the Declaration of Geneva (Physician’s oath) that are adopted in the Australian Medical Association (AMA) Code of Ethics. It also violates the International Covenant on Economic and Cultural and Social Rights (ICECSR) - Article 7 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights ,states that “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. In particular, no one shall be subjected without his free consent to medical or scientific experimentation.” The International Covenant on Economic and Cultural and Social Rights (ICECSR) protects the individual’s right to autonomy over their own body (bodily integrity) as well as the community’s right to non-discriminatory social welfare policies. - Article 17 of this covenant is the Right to Privacy that includes ‘the right to personal autonomy and physical and psychological integrity over one’s own body’ (AG APb p58) - The implementation of mandatory and coercive vaccination into social welfare policies also requires that all conflicts of interest in the development of the vaccination program be presented to the public The use of financial incentives and employment to encourage the uptake of vaccines effectively removes free and informed consent to vaccination because people’s livelihoods are affected by this decision. We The People Declare Providing a full coverage compensation program for those damaged or affected by vaccine inoculation. (Not a no-fault compensation scheme, as this puts the responsibility on the tax payer to pay.) 0 virus
