or not to be shot. That seems to be the question!
The shot I am referring to is the covid vaccine. After months of everyone keeping their fingers crossed a vaccine could be developed, there are a number on the horizon. 2021 should be the year of the jab.
But with the desperate wishes of a world finally being answered, it seems the conversation has changed tune. Many people who had been begging for a vaccine are now hesitant to line up to be jabbed. “It’s too fast” a common refrain (referring to how quickly this vaccine has been developed compared to other vaccines which take something like 5 years).
I imagine anything can be done faster if a) the project is given priority over everything else and b) there are virtually unlimited funds!
I have no idea what the checks and balances are like in other countries, but in Australia the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Association) are the mob who approve drugs like the covid vaccine. The various covid vaccines will have to meet the same standards for approval that every other drug has to.
Good enough for me (yes, I’ll be lining up for my shot).
Are you planning on getting the covid vaccine?
