When the media started portraying the coronavirus vaccine as the key to going back to normal in early 2020, it was easy to see that an endless vaccination campaign is what the people in power were going for.
It was never going to end with just one shot, because this isn’t about public health.
This is about transforming society.
Oxford University and AstraZeneca plan to have a new Covid vaccine ready by the autumn to tackle new variants of the coronavirus, they confirmed today.
Growing evidence suggests that a mutation first found in the South African variant of the virus, and now cropping up elsewhere, can reduce how well current vaccines work because it changes the shape of the spike protein that the jabs target.
And to overcome this, vaccine-makers say they are already working on updating their jabs because they need to be extremely specific to offer the best protection.
The Oxford/AstraZeneca team, makers of one of the world’s most advanced vaccines so far, say they will have theirs ready and manufactured before the end of 2021.
Oxford’s Professor Andrew Pollard, who is leading studies of the jab, said it would be a ‘short process’ compared to making the original vaccine from scratch.
The update could be used either as a booster for people who have already had a different vaccine or it could be used on its own for those who are still unvaccinated.
AstraZeneca’s executive vice-president, Sir Mene Pangalos, confirmed today: ‘We’re very much aiming to have something ready by the autumn this year.’
Professor Andrew Pollard told a media briefing: ‘I think the actual work on designing a new vaccine is very, very quick because it’s essentially just switching out the genetic sequence for the spike protein, so for the updated variants.
‘Then there’s manufacturing to do and then a small-scale study.
‘All of that can be completed in a very short period of time, and the autumn is really the timing for having new vaccines available for use rather than for having the clinical trials run.’
Vaccines are likely to have be updated to cope with mutated variants of the coronavirus because they make super-specific molecules to target the virus.
Professor Pollard said it was ‘very difficult to know’ which mutations and variants would pose the biggest problems by the autumn this year.
But he said: ‘At this moment, researchers are looking at current variants that are dominating… I suspect that this is going to be an ongoing challenge to follow what the virus is doing.’
They are going to pump out an endless stream of mysterious vaccines alleged to address some innocuous or outright made-up virus strains. Coronavirus didn’t raise the yearly death toll, which, in practical terms, means that coronavirus is being blamed for the deaths of people who were going to die anyways in a normal year.
What’s more, it appears that “coronavirus cases” are literally just cases of the flu.
The “pandemic” isn’t real.
All of this discussion about vaccines, mutated strains, cases rising, and social distancing is not a public health crisis being addressed but a trick to rapidly change the world while encountering the least amount of resistance.
