Since the announcement came just a few days after election day, Trump is convinced that the timing was somehow intended to hurt his chances of getting reelected.
Trump went off on Twitter right after the news broke, accusing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Democrats of trying to prevent him from gaining a “vaccine win” by delivering the news after Nov. 3.
“The @US_FDA and the Democrats didn’t want to have me get a Vaccine WIN, prior to the election, so instead it came out five days later – As I’ve said all along!” Trump ranted.
According to Pfizer, early survey results from 94 trial participants in a study involving 43,538 human guinea pigs supposedly showed that the company’s Wuhan coronavirus vaccine (Covid-19) could be up to 90 percent effective against infection.
Based on this claim, Pfizer is planning to seek Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA sometime later this month to start injecting Americans at warp speed with the jab, which has greatly upset Trump.
As long as Pfizer can show that adverse effects in at least 30,000 test subjects are minimal, the company could receive a green light from the FDA to begin jabbing the fearful by the end of November.
Trump, meanwhile, is trying to claim credit for the Pfizer jab as resulting from his “Operation Warp Speed” plan to have the military “powerfully deliver” Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccines at warp speed. Pfizer, however, is now denying any involvement in OWS.
“We were never part of the Warp Speed,” Kathrin Jansen, a senior vice president and head of vaccine research and development at Pfizer, told The New York Times. “We have never taken any money from the U.S. government, or from anyone.”
Pfizer now says it did, in fact, participate in Operation Warp Speed
Not long after Jansen made this claim to the Times, Pfizer walked it back by insisting that Jansen’s statements were taken out of context.
We, too, can confirm that Pfizer did, in fact, secure an agreement with the federal government back in the summer whereby $2 billion worth of Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine that did not yet exist were purchased in advance with American taxpayer dollars.
“Pfizer is proud to be one of various vaccine manufacturers participating in Operation Warp Speed as a supplier of a potential COVID-19 vaccine,” Pfizer now claims, according to an official statement.
“While Pfizer did reach an advanced purchase agreement with the U.S. government, the company did not accept BARDA funding for the research and development process.”
Pfizer insists that all of the investment for research and development along with manufacturing was footed by Pfizer “at risk.” This, the company claims, is what Jansen supposedly meant when she told the Times that Pfizer was never part of OWS.
Even if Pfizer’s vaccine for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is approved by November’s end, it could take a little bit more time to fast-track production of all the doses necessary to begin jabbing Americans with them at warp speed.
According to Trump himself, senior citizens and other “vulnerable” people will be first in line to receive the shots, followed by everyone else who chooses to get one – though refusing, it is important to note, could result in the unvaccinated not being allowed to fly, engage in commerce, or go to school.
