Moderna Files For Emergency Approval For New Coronavirus Vaccine

Published

on

Moderna released a statement on Monday saying they are going to ask the Food and Drug Administration to give emergency approval to its new experimental COVID-19 vaccine.

This makes Moderna the second company to file this request, following hot on the heels of Pfizer who filed their application earlier in the month. Moderna stated that new data shows their vaccine as being 94.1 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 infection.

Pfizer’s effective rate was 95 percent.

“We believe that our vaccine will provide a new and powerful tool that may change the course of this pandemic and help prevent severe disease, hospitalizations and death,” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in a statement. Bancel said last week that 20 million doses will be available by the end of the year.

The FDA’s vaccine advisory committee is set to meet Dec. 17 to review data from the two companies.

Pfizer said on Nov. 9 that its developmental vaccine for COVID-19 may be 90% effective at inoculating people against the disease. The rate of effectiveness was calculated by analyzing early data from 94 trial participants in a study involving 43,538 subjects from all over the world. The small early sample means that the protection rate could change by the time the study ends and all the participants are accounted for, according to the AP.

One of the major differences between the two vaccines is that the one being produced by Moderna does not need to be put in sub-zero storage, while Pfizer’s does. This makes the Moderna vaccine much easier to distribute.

A third vaccine is also in the works from AstraZeneca and Oxford University. This particular vaccine is said to be 90 percent effective.

Guess now we’re just playing the waiting game to see which of these companies gets approved first. They probably all will be made available rather quickly.

The real question is whether or not these companies are being completely forthright and honest about what is in the vaccines and what the potential side effects of taking it might be.

Answers to those questions could make all the difference between folks taking it or opting out of it.

Dem Senator: Troops Remain In DC Because Trump May Incite Another Capitol Attack

Bush league.

On a scale of 1-10, this quote from a Democrat Senator hits 11 on the side of stupidity. People like Chris Murphy just can’t help themselves. They are literally obsessed with President Donald Trump. Hey, Connecticut – want a do-over on this guy or what? If you live in the Constitution State and said no, you may want to re-evaluate. During an appearance on CNN, Murphy said: “The threat to the country is not over. We still have 5,000 National Guard members surrounding the Capitol complex. Why? Because there are still existing threats, present threats to the security of the Capitol. And so long as Donald Trump is empowered by Senate Republicans, there’s still the chance that he is going to incite another attempt at the Capitol or stir up similar trouble at the state legislative level or in a governor’s election when things don’t go his way. The threat is still very real to American democracy.” From The Daily Wire: Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) added to the already deep divide in our nation during a online meeting with constituents in San Francisco on Saturday, claiming the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday chose their “whiteness over democracy.” Pelosi said, “When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all. The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’” She added, “I thought it was going to be an epiphany for those who were in opposition of our democracy to see the light. Instead, it was an epiphany for the…

Report: Biden Forming Committee With Intent of Packing the Supreme Court

Uh oh.

Biden refused to answer on the campaign trail if he would pack the court. He even said the American people don’t deserve to know his position on the matter. But since SCOTUS currently leans 5-4 conservative (though, four of the five justices sometimes side with the liberal minority), Joe is now making it clear that he’s planning to bump up the total from nine. From Politico: The Biden administration is moving forward with the creation of a bipartisan commission to study reforms to the Supreme Court and the federal judiciary. The commission will be housed under the purview of the White House Counsel’s office and filled out with the behind-the-scenes help of the Biden campaign’s lawyer Bob Bauer, who will co-chair the commission. Its specific mandate is still being decided. But, in a signal that the commission is indeed moving ahead, some members have already been selected, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions. CONTINUED: Among those who will be on the commission are Cristina Rodríguez, a professor at Yale Law School and a former deputy assistant attorney general in the Obama Department of Justice, who will join Bauer as co-chair. Caroline Fredrickson, the former president of the American Constitution Society, and Jack Goldsmith, a Harvard Law School professor and a former assistant attorney general in the Bush Department of Justice, will also serve on the commission, those familiar with discussions said. Fredrickson has hinted that she is intellectually supportive of ideas like court expansion. In 2019, she said in an interview with Eric Lesh, the executive director of the LGBT Bar Association and Foundation of Greater New York: “I often point out to people who aren’t lawyers that the Supreme Court is not defined as ‘nine person body’ in the Constitution, and it has changed size many times.”…
