Vaccines In The Hands Of Amateurs

While Pfizer pharmaceutical made headlines announcing the imminent release of their COVID-19 vaccine, to much fanfare, a former Vice President and Chief Scientist for the company has flatly rejected the need for any vaccines to bring the COVID-19 pandemic to an end.

In a recent article, Dr. Michael Yeadon, who “spent over 30 years leading new [allergy and respiratory] medicines research in some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies,” and retired from Pfizer with “the most senior research position in this field,” wrote: 

There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I’ve never heard such nonsense talked about vaccines. You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease. You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.

I imagine poor Dr. Yeadon feels as frustrated but amused as we did when we heard ol’ Jerome Adams chortle, “Exercise and promote your freedom by choosing to wear a face covering.” What a horse’s rump, and how totally, abysmally, shamefully ignorant!

More likely, though, Adams et al aren’t ignorant but evil: though they know the truth, they betray it.
