Covid-19 Vaccine to be fast tracked- but…

First of all, this might be labeled conspiracy theory.  Which of course is complete B.S.  This is not an anti-vaccine statement at all- this editor has nothing against vaccines and opinion is that if tested properly they can be safe, most people do just fine.

It is simply something to provoke a debate and dredging up history for that.  Big Tech- Evil Google, Facebook and others will attempt to squash the debate as they want to force feed you their narrative, the mainstream media is pure evil.

Vaccines are designed to be safe, however when manufactured- things can happen.  The idea that a vaccine is rushed into use is for some people- disturbing.  Some others a blessing.

Fast Track Disaster with Salk polio Vaccine.

Let’s also be reminded that India’s children took the oral vaccine because it was cheaper and nearly a half a million children were paralyzed because they were given a “Cheaper version” using an oral vaccine.

“While India’s oral polio vaccine (OPV) drives have eliminated polio from the country, they have also resulted in over 490,000 cases of paralysis during 2000—2017, says a new study based on national surveillance statistics.”- SciDev.net

Polio Vaccine History- excerpts

This article states the history with footnotes available.  Read it directly at the URL provided.  Here are some statements:

SALK AND THE CUTTER INCIDENT
On March 26, 1953, American physician and microbiologist Jonas Salk announced on national radio that he had successfully tested a vaccine against poliomyelitis. Presumably, the nation cheered. Because of the tremendous fear created by the advertising campaigns, parents in Canada, Finland and the United States readily offered up their children to serve as test subjects for Salk’s clinical vaccine trial in 1954. Over six hundred and twenty thousand “polio pioneers” were injected with vaccine or placebo, and “more than a million others participated as ‘observed’ controls,” in what would become the largest public health experiment in history.
Licensing of Salk’s polio vaccine was then fast-tracked by the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. The government approved the vaccine for commercial use after only two hours of deliberation, persuaded by the one-year field trial that the vaccine was both “safe and effective.”

Unfortunately, fast-tracking the vaccine proved disastrous. In the spring of 1955, Salk’s newly approved inactivated polio vaccine (IPV), manufactured by Cutter Laboratories, was administered to over four hundred thousand people, including many schoolchildren. Of those, over half—two hundred and twenty thousand individuals—in five Western and mid-Western states were injected with a bad batch. Because Salk’s vaccine used a “killed” version of the polio germ, it “supposedly carried no risk of giving recipients ‘vaccine-associated polio paralysis,’”11 but within days, reports of paralysis began surfacing. Within a month, the mass vaccination program against polio had to be suspended. Salk’s vaccine had caused seventy thousand cases of muscle weakness, one hundred and sixty-four cases of severe paralysis and ten deaths. Three fourths (75 percent) of the victims remained paralyzed for the rest of their lives.

This tragedy became known as the “Cutter incident.” Investigations confirmed that the formalin (or formaldehyde) used to kill the poliovirus did not do what it was supposed to do. Rather, the manufacturing process “resurrected” the poliovirus, which led to injection of live polioviruses into recipients.14 Moreover, the vaccine formulation used during the 1954 field trial had contained Merthiolate, the trade name for the thimerosal mercury compound, which, while problematic in other respects, had a virus-killing effect. However, manufacturers removed the Merthiolate from the 1955 vaccine to induce a faster antibody response in vaccine recipients, causing the vaccine to retain live viruses of a highly neurovirulent nature.

IPV AND OPV
In 1963, the U.S. replaced Salk’s IPV vaccine with an attenuated (weakened, not killed) oral polio vaccine (OPV) developed by American physician and microbiologist, Albert Sabin. As a live virus vaccine, it, too, was (and continues to be) capable of giving its recipients polio. Not only can OPV trigger vaccine-strain polio in recipients, it can also cause polio in those who come in contact with recently vaccinated individuals due to shedding of live vaccine-strain poliovirus in bodily fluids.

In validation of this very theory, Dr. Salk testified before a Senate subcommittee in 1977 that the oral polio vaccine had caused most of the polio cases in the U.S. since the early 1960s.

Today, the U.S. has reverted to using an updated version of Salk’s “killed” IPV vaccine. Meanwhile, Sabin’s live OPV vaccine continues to be widely used in other parts of the world, and particularly in lower-income countries, as it is less expensive to produce.- August 3, 2019 By Kendall Nelson, Weston A.
