Americans are desperate for relief from the cloud of the Wuhan virus.
The coronavirus vaccine has been offered as a ray of hope.
But one report about the vaccine has Americans concerned.
It’s time for society to reopen.
Tens of millions of Americans are out of work and countless businesses permanently destroyed.
But there are some concerns about the vaccine after one frontline worker had an allergic reaction and is now in the hospital.
From Fox News:
“A health care worker suffered a severe allergic reaction within 10 minutes of receiving Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday, marking the first such instance in the U.S. The health care worker, whose identity is being withheld but was described as a middle-aged woman, has no prior history of allergic reactions and had to be hospitalized for treatment. She was admitted to Bartlett Hospital’s emergency department, which is the same facility that she had received the vaccine.”
Officials say the woman is doing better and is soon scheduled for release, but the reaction raises questions about how much—or how little—is known about the vaccines for COVID-19.
The incident caused the Centers for Disease Control to change its COVID vaccine guidelines to say that if a person has “ever had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient in a COVID-19 vaccine,” then they “should not get that specific vaccine.”
However, the CDC still recommends people with other allergies should get the vaccine.
“CDC recommends that people with a history of severe allergic reactions not related to vaccines or injectable medications—such as allergies to food, pet, venom, environmental, or latex—may still get vaccinated…People with a history of allergies to oral medications or a family history of severe allergic reactions, or who might have an milder [sic] allergy to vaccines (no anaphylaxis)—may also still get vaccinated.”
But that isn’t terribly reassuring with such a new vaccine. And it also doesn’t help that the health experts have blown their credibility over the last several months.
Dr. Fauci and other bigwigs have reversed themselves on almost every major health position.
In February, they said the virus was tantamount to a bad flu season – but that ended up being based on faulty information from the World Health Organization.
Suddenly, it became verboten to compare COVID-19 to the flu.
Politicians rushed to close down the schools over coronavirus fear, but then the science showed that schools were not super-spreaders of the virus and children were not at risk.
The patience of the American people has run out.
They don’t want to be held hostage over a virus with a 99.8% survival rate.
Total vaccine compliance should not be a condition for allowing the economy to reopen.
