So this is another moronic slide into American marking schemes where 0 is 50 and everybody who's going through school is coming out dumber and dumber. The excuse in the US is profitable grift from education. The excuse in the UK is nobody who matters gives a fuck because none of their kids would be going anywhere near the state run schools.
Why are these big corporations Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca given vast public funding to develop their vaccine tech, but then no taxpayer share in the astronomical profits and no free access to the medical innovation they've funded?
Why are these corporations private profit, public funding, immune from ALL legal consequences of the vaccines AFTER full approval i.e. they're no longer experimental?
Why is AstraZeneca vaccine not available in the US, even after its proven to last considerably longer than the Pfizer/Moderna mRNA vaccines?

'Ultra-potent' antibody against SARS-CoV-2 variants isolated (22-Sept-2021) @ PRE-REVIEW ARTICLE on sciencedaily.com website.
Why does none of the Covid-19 testing include antibody/t-cell scores or variant tracking? Why is a negative Covid-19 test + high natural antibodies score not equivalent or better to vaccination certication? Antibodies/T-Cells score is the measure of vaccine immune system successful response, can't be faked. Vaccine certificates can be faked and vary wildly person to person even among the vaccinated. It defies logic.
Why wasn't testing focused on antibody levels from the get go - or as soon as possible - as it is effective, useful data before and after vaccination, determines who reacts well, who may need boosters, who's fought off SARS-Cov2 and gotten high immunity, who may need vaccine despite prior infection; and maybe most important: how SAFE a person is from getting or giving Coronavirus.

"In most cases, there is no deferral time for individuals who received a COVID-19 vaccine as long as they are symptom free and feeling well at the time of donation. There is no deferral time for eligible blood donors who are vaccinated with an inactivated or RNA based COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by AstraZeneca, Janssen/J&J, Moderna, Novavax, or Pfizer."

CDC data shows very very low risk from Coronavirus vaccines (mRNA or ad-vector) though the chance of serious side effects increases - separate to co-morbidities - for much younger patients, especially males under 21. CDC site numbers give between 5000-1 and 20000-1 serious myocarditis/pericarditis risk for mRNA (Pfizer/Moderna) vaccines, especially after second dose. This risk is far higher than the risk of serious Covid-19, for that age/gender group. Is it OK to put young lives at greater risk for the sake of older lives potentially facing greater risk, e.g. coronavirus caught by grandkids passed on to grandparents?

Antiviral medication Ivermectin was invented in Japan and mass-produced by Merck. It is now out of patent, cheap and available worldwide. Merck is developing Molnupiravir (MK-4482) as a therapeutic to treat COVID-19 infections. It would be an antiviral, like Ivermectin, but patented and therefore potentially worth tens of billions profit versus Ivermectin which is worth nada. Molnupiravir is in Phase 3 trials. Merck received a base award amount of $1.2 billion on 7-Jun-2021 from the Federal Government (1.7 million doses). Comparison Study: Molnupiravir v. Ivermectin
"Not surprisingly, the two are similar. With neither showing any serious adverse side effects. "Molnupiravir is a pro-drug of the novel active antiviral nucleoside analogue ... It's a broad spectrum antiviral agent. ... Ivermectin is a broad-spectrum, anti-parasitic, antibiotic and which has demonstrated broad-spectrum antiviral activity" ... Merck had the patent on Ivermectin until 1996. So it is not a coincidence that they have developed this very expensive drug, Molnupiravir, funded by the US taxpayer and which is similar. It follows, then, why there is so much disparagement of Ivermectin. If widely accepted, it could rain on Merck's parade and greatly embarrass BARDA. What I cannot grasp is that for the 10 months when the vaccines were being developed, certain caring, critical care physicians sought out existing drugs and developed protocols. These have been changed multiple times and are currently undergoing more changes to address the variants issue. The FLCCC Alliance recommends the use Ivermectin as part of more expansive protocols which they have developed for the prophylaxis and treatment of COVID-19 at all stages by both the vaxxed and the un-vaxxed. These physicians should be lauded, not abused."
"Vioxx" is the name is a smear campaign playbook used by Merck Pharmaceuticals to campaign against its own competing drug—the FDA-approved, Nobel prize-winning antiviral Ivermectin, which is generic, cheap and globally available with very little scope for significant profit. See Merck's deadly Vioxx playbook redux (7-Sept-2021) @ ARTICLE on TrialSiteNews website documenting corporate malfeasance.
Much media propagation of the NIH having concluded "there's currently insufficient data to recommend ivermectin for the treatment of COVID" i.e. don't use it, don't explore it. In fact, NIH current status on Ivermectin is there is not enough data to recommend or to discourage its use. NIH recommendation prior to December 2020 was to discourage Ivermectin usage. The change itself is significant and would usually be accompanied by a rush of funds to study its antiviral efficacy. No such funding has been forthcoming.
Interestingly, two other COVID modalities have exactly the same recommend/discourage status. That would be remdesevir and outpatient monoclonal antibodies. EXACTLY the same status on both of these as ivermectin currently. The NIH states there is not enough evidence to recommend or to discourage the use of either of these. And yet we continue right on with both the others without a blink of an eye.
A little maths –
Eventually, if things keeps looking, smelling and tasting like shit then we have to conclude it is shit.
