Latest fun fun encouraging news on COVID vaccines !The soon to be released-approved “Novavax” appears to be the best current COVID vaccine on the planet … especially in protecting us from all the different new variants of COVID:
With Oxford-AstraZenica vaccine down at just 56% protection for people getting their doses just 30 days apart (vs. the manufacturer’s recommended 84 – 90 days) … and with JnJ vaccine down at just 66% protection … and with even the vaunted Pfizer vaccine failing to protect us up to 12% of the time … from just incidental contact with COVID … there is NOW some good news.
” the fascination with the newest, shiniest (COVID vaccine) options obscured some basic facts. These two particular (Pfizer & Moderna) mRNA vaccines may have been the first to get results from Phase 3 clinical trials, but that’s because of superior trial management … “
“… not (due to some) secret vaccine sauce. … “
“For now, (Pfizer & Moderna) are harder and more expensive to manufacture and distribute than traditional types of vaccines, and their side effects are more common and more severe. “
INSTEAD: “The latest Novavax data confirm that it’s possible to achieve the same efficacy against COVID-19 with a more familiar technology that more people may be inclined to trust. (The mRNA vaccines delivered efficacy rates of 95 and 94 percent against the original coronavirus strain in Phase 3 trials, as compared with 96 percent for Novavax in its first trial,
and now (Novavax offers a very special) 90 percent protection against a mixture of variants ” !!!
This last item on Novavax’s 90% protection rates against all the different COVID variants is STUNNINGLY better than even Pfizer or Moderna.
Groundbreaking Stuff !!
Finally notice that Novavax may become the vaccine of choice for people needing a booster next year !
