'Grave disservice': Merck CEO warns against virus vaccine hopes

Head of US pharmaceutical giant says health officials may not be able to distribute coronavirus vaccines widely enough.

Coronavirus vaccines under development are not guaranteed to work, and people who raise hopes of developing a vaccine before year-end are doing a "grave disservice to the public", Merck & Co Inc's chief said, according to a Harvard Business Review report.

The potential vaccines may not have the qualities needed to be rapidly deployed in large numbers, Chief Executive Kenneth Frazier said in an interview published on Monday.

"If you're going to use a vaccine on billions of people, you better know what that vaccine does," he was quoted as saying.

A United States official said Monday that drugmakers partnered with the US government are on track to begin actively manufacturing a COVID-19 vaccine by the end of the summer, Reuters reported.

The Trump administration aims to produce 300 million vaccine doses by the end of 2021 through its Operation Warp Speed Program.

Some previous vaccines "not only didn't confer protection, but actually helped the virus invade the cell, because it was incomplete in terms of its immunogenic properties," Frazier said. "So we have to be very careful."  Read more here.

"No study volunteers experienced a serious side effect, but more than half reported mild or moderate reactions such as fatigue, headache, chills, muscle aches or pain at the injection site. These were more likely to occur after the second dose and in people who got the highest dose.....If your vaccine can induce a response comparable with natural infection, that's a winner," Fauci said in a telephone interview with Reuters. "That's why we're very pleased by the results."
Sounds like Fauci is admitting that the manufactured infection is worse than natural infection. Most of us don't even know we had this cold. Why would we take a vaccine that has a 50/50 chance of giving us the symptoms we are all trying to avoid.

Hans Litten,
Yes, and wouldn't one have thought that, if this really was a world-wide pandemic, our government would want a world-wide effort to stem it, rather than worrying about the MONEY they're likely to make out of being the first to bring one to market? Are we starting to see the truth coming out?

Perhaps the whole vaccine thingy has gotten so out of hand that even the CEO of Merck is gettin scared?
Which means geesh, nothing to my family at this moment, but for society? Well now it looks like it is breaking down to me. I mean when you got some one with a big long stick in broad daylight running up and beating the head policeman over the head, and then they let him gooooo???? What? How dangerous is that man to the rest of us?

But as far as vaccines for our family we finally a fork in it, we are done. Too bad though that I let it over cook way, way over the time we should have been done.

A much needed reminder of the potential danger in "fast tracking a vaccine at warp speed" … I applaud CEO Frazier for having courage to voice his convictions at a time when it is much easier to just stay silent.

Frazier, one of only four Black CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, said the US pandemic, with a higher death rate among people of colour, has highlighted "huge structural elements of racism that have existed in this country for a long time."

Probably just silly old me .. but .. I suspect Frazier weakened his cautionary warning by introducing "huge structural elements of racism that that have existed in this country for a long time"?

In any event … MR FRAZIER'S WARNING THEY BETTER KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING BEFORE VACCINATING BILLIONS OF PEOPLE IS COMMON SENSE .. A BASIC "STRUCTURAL ELEMENT" LACKING WITHIN THE VACCINE INDUSTRY.

Apparently Kenneth Frazier, the Russians have been trying to steal our vaccines.

Well Ken, as far as I am concerned, and I now know I speak for probably at least 58m, Russia can have our vaccine, and in fact, it can take all the others too. I will even put a bow on for them.

The English Press is a bankrupt piece of lying filth as far as I can see. The whole of it led by the BBC & Guardian.
