From the standpoint of having worked in pharma drug development- and having had my name on an INDA (Investigational New Drug Application) to the FDA,
I can say from precise experience that this happens ALL the time, and not just with vaccines.
If a drug shows promise- of any kind, and in any bodily system, it is often "fast-tracked" to the FDA; and through clinical trials.
Normally, vacines should take a minimum of one year, and ideally, 3-5 years of clinical trials before going into humans. A new drug for pulmonary or
cardiac disease, for example, can spend 5-10 years from bench to clinic.
When the FDA thinks the drug shows enough promise and few "enough" side effects, and with a big bunch of cash from the company, it will be put on
the market sooner than other drugs. Basically, Phase 3 clinical trials are ignored- the PUBLIC becomes the Phase 3 trial---that's why you see a drug
on the market for a year or two- and after adverse side effects are reported in large numbers, a "black box" warning is then placed on the drug,
indicating it is dangerous to certain groups, or in general. The problem is, the drug is STILL prescribed, as it's on the market- and drug reps push
it even harder, due to the new warnings, and doctors' caution in prescribing it.
In the case of a Level 6 WHO Pandemic declaration, the pharmas have even more freedom- the Emergency Use Authorization (a Federal "statute") gives
pharmas the ability and funding to quickly produce a vaccine "in the best interest of the public health", and also indemnifies those very
companies--and the government-- from any legal recourse if the public takes ill from their hastily whipped-up "cures". Did you get MS from the
vaccine? Too bad- you can't sue. It's all in the greater good.
The cynicism in a pharma's highest echelons is so stunning, it's hard to conceive. Truly, these laws allow our governments NOT to protect us, but
to do us great harm at our expense (tax dollars are paying for the vaccine research- not pharma money); most likely we will be vaccinated without
choice (if they reach us) and if we take ill after the vaccine we have no chance to seek legal recourse.
We have been guinea pigs for many years. This is not new- it's just faster. Fight back as hard- and as thoughtfully- as you can.
