Our Father WHO art in CDC, hallowed be thy name.
Thy vaccine come. Thy liability none.
On Earth as it is your fairytales.
Give us this day our daily dose and forgive us our questions
As we destroy those who have questioned before us
Lead us not into anti-vaccination
But deliver us from disease.
From the StatNews article below: He (Moderna test subject Ian Haydon) and his girlfriend arrived home at 7 a.m., and he slept until noon. His temperature was 101.5. He got up to go to the bathroom, and became so nauseous he threw up. On his way back from the bathroom, he fainted. His girlfriend caught him and kept his head from hitting the floor.
Do you have someone around at all times to keep your head from hitting the floor? Perhaps in addition to $1,200 to keep us afloat, Americans need funds to hire a CoVax Buddy.

He even said he’d volunteer to be exposed to the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, if researchers want to test to see if the vaccine was actually effective. But up until now he has left out a key detail: He is, apparently, one of three people in the trial who had a systemic adverse reaction to the vaccine.
Twelve hours after receiving his second dose, he developed a fever of more than 103 degrees, sought medical attention, and, after being released from an urgent care facility, fainted in his home. He recovered within a day.
He has not brought up the side effects previously, he said, out of “an abundance of caution.”
“I understand that sharing the story, it’s going to be frightening to some people,” he said. “I hope that it doesn’t fuel any sort of general antagonism towards vaccines in general or towards even this vaccine.... Read more here.
