The mRNA Vaccines Are Extraordinary,
but Novavax Is Even Better

Original Article

At the end of January, reports that yet another COVID-19 vaccine had succeeded in its clinical trials—this one offering about 70 percent protection—were front-page news in the United States, and occasioned push alerts on millions of phones. But when the Maryland-based biotech firm Novavax announced its latest stunning trial results last week, and an efficacy rate of more than 90 percent even against coronavirus variants, the response from the same media outlets was muted in comparison. [SNIP] If the FDA sees no urgency, the Novavax vaccine might not be available in the U.S. for months.

Atlantic would be one of the LAST places I would get advice on ANYTHING, especially something critical like health care. No, thanks. Not getting it. I have spent a great deal of effort understanding these 'vaccines' and all of them are entirely untested on any mammals before this, and I am no guinea pig. And the CDC's own data shows that there are a dramatically higher number of deaths and other serious reactions to these vaccines than have happened with ANY of the old, normal vaccine technologies used up until this one. Not a chance I will take it, ever.

From what I have read, this is an actual vaccine similar to the ones we got at school in the '60s, not a new experimental version of "vaccine". That said, I don't plan to get it until and unless I am allowed to know a lot more about it. The msm and powers-that-be not trying to shove it down our throats is a point in favor of this one in my humble opinion.

I'm sure it wasn't this author's intent but the difficulties Novavax has had getting approved and making it to market are a testament to the achievements of Operation Warp Speed. You know--that program put together by Donald Trump.

Fta: The protein-subunit approach used by Novavax was first implemented for the hepatitis B vaccine, which has been used in the U.S. since 1986. The pertussis vaccine, which is required for almost all children in U.S. public schools, is also made this way. Some of those people who have been wary of getting the mRNA vaccines may find Novavax more appealing. (Also) Lower rates of adverse events are likely to be a bigger issue still for parents, when considering vaccination for their children. --- You bet your buttons it does. Known more tradition vaccine technology that has been in use for decades, fewer adverse effects. That sounds much better for kids.

The clinical trial shows that Novavax is almost as effective as Moderna and Pfizer, with low rates of mild side effects. It can be stored in domestic refrigerators. It looks like a great product, but there is now no urgency for the FDA to grant it emergency authorization, so it may linger a bit before approval in the US, It has an enormous future in Africa etc though.

I agree that the Novavax not putting the mRNA into your body is a huge improvement over the mRNA vaccines, and if I was really worried about this virus, I suppose I'd take Novavax WAY before the other ones. However, there is substantial indication that the spike proteins, by themselves, are the cause of much of the health problems associated with these shots, and Novavax does use the spike protein. The Novavax shot doesn't instruct your body to make large, unknown numbers of these spike proteins. Instead it injects a finite quantity of spike proteins, bound into a ball of them, as the vaccine. A finite amount of something harmful has got to be at least somewhat better than your body making unknown large quantities of the harmful thing, but the difference may be small. Still, the spike proteins, by themselves, are harmful. I don't want them in my body.

A resident of the collapsed Miami condo has revealed he only survived the tragedy because his girlfriend persuaded him to stay at her place on the night the building fell and said he would repay her by buying her an engagement ring. Erick de Moura, 40, said he was supposed to be staying at his two-bedroom apartment on the 10th floor of Champlain Towers South on June 23 but by a 'miracle' he wound up spending the night at Fernanda Figueiredo's home less than two miles away.

Suppliers that want to land Inc. as a client for their goods and services can find that its business comes with a catch: the right for Amazon to buy big stakes in their companies at potentially steep discounts to market value. The technology-and-retail giant has struck at least a dozen deals with publicly traded companies in which it gets rights, called warrants, to buy the vendors’ stock in the future at what could be below-market prices, according to corporate filings and interviews with people involved with the deals. Amazon over the past decade also has done more than 75 such deals with privately held companies.

Western loggers, mill workers, and small communities were shocked when President Biden nominated Tracy Stone-Manning as the Director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Stone-Manning was part of the notorious domestic eco-terrorist group Earth First! when she was a 23-year-old graduate student at the University of Montana. As an editor of one of the group’s publications, she provided fodder to the faithful who opposed congressionally mandated logging on federal lands. On one occasion, however, she went beyond advocacy. In 1989, she was an accessory to an act of eco-terrorism called tree spiking in an effort to stop the sale of Idaho national forest timber.

The government watchdog organization Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) after they failed to respond to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request which sought coronavirus data records on illegal aliens the administration has continued releasing into the U.S. interior.

A middle school teacher from Washington State has come in for criticism after handing out flyers that advised students on sex and how to go about getting a abortion, without first getting the consent of parents. The fact sheet, which was said to have been produced by Planned Parenthood, told eighth-grade kids aged 13 and 14 that they could obtain abortions 'AT ANY AGE' and without parental consent. It went on to state they could also purchase condoms 'AT ANY AGE' and that someone could engage in sex as young as 11 so long as their partner was less than two years older than them.

Vogue, the world's fashion bible, has placed Jill Biden on her cover as the epitome of fashion. She's a "goddess," they explain. Which is a stretch, given that the first lady has sported getups like this loud red zebra print dress, or these huge-print patterned pantyhose worn with elfin spike heel ankle boots. It goes to show that its whole schtick is politics, not fashion. After all, the big fashion bible for the world's stylish somehow managed to overlook the nation's truly stylish first lady, Melania Trump, a former super-model, who not only was quite beautiful, but age-appropriate and elegant in her four years as first lady.
