Outstanding, and thanks!...are your protocols different than the general public as a participant in their study? Seems like you could get a shot regardless....(I know as a participant in their study, you wouldn't....)
Nice to get the "official poop".....its appreciated....
I don't know if I'm getting any special consideration but I really don't think so. I guess the only advantage is that I can call Pfizer direct and get a straightforward answer to my questions. To me that is a great little advantage especially when you look at all the bull chips that are spread as 'facts' in the media and on forums similar to this.
My jollies come from knowing that with my miniscule participation in the study I have helped to develop the first useable vaccine for Covid 19. I trust Pfizer as one of the largest pharmaceutical/research companies in the world.
Yes the vaccine was developed rapidly (by necessity). But I assure you and everyone else, there were no shortcuts and that is a stupid reason to listen to the nonsense that it was developed too fast and is therefore no good.
I've had many vaccines over my lifetime and always to my benefit. I even had polio one year before the Salk vaccine came out. But you can bet I got the vaccine ASAP thereafter because my parents were deeply concerned about my life and health.
And at five years old, I well remember that pandemic, the quarantine, the iron lungs, the Sister Kenney treatment, learning to walk again, the PT, etc .
I am appalled at the amount of ignorance, lies, and misinformation that circulates in our society. Don't fall for it.
Buck up! Get shot! Don't cry! You might even get a lollipop for being a big boy or girl.
Now off my soapbox!
