yah no, that’s not helping, not helping at all
If I can read the damn letters from the FDA and spot that they’re requiring additional testing to be done, some of which won’t be done until 2027!
If I can read the damn letters and spot the fine print:
The licensed vaccine has the same formulation as the EUA-authorized vaccine and the products can be used interchangeably to provide the vaccination series without presenting any safety or effectiveness concerns. The products are legally distinct with certain differences that do not impact safety or effectiveness.
So basically they approved A VERSION of the Pfizer shot, but not the one that everyone got, and they’re extending the EUA on the version that everyone got…..
….and wonder why the hell it’s been “FDA APPROVED!!!” but they’re still looking at needing more data to be sure its safe, and why are they extending the EUA if its approved……
…..and there’s legal distinctions and why does that matter….
…..except that the EUA version means that the company isn’t liable and while the approved one means the company is liable, and BY LAW the EUA vaccines can’t be mandated and FDA approved ones can, and gosh, I wonder how long it’s going to take them to get actual approved one across the USA while everyone who’s now going for a shot is thinking they’re getting an FDA approved shot and legally they aren’t, and just what are the changes/differences, and if it’s been so thoroughly tested why do those tests that aren’t going to be done till 2027 even matter, except clearly they do, so clearly they don’t know that it’s THAT safe and…..
…..and I feel like a goddammed conspiracy theorist, but this whole mess has me wanting to turn into a hermit and say fuck it to the world….
And if I’m having this set of thoughts there’s going to be an awful lot of other people reading these letters thinking the same things I’ve been and thinking that there’s no way in hell.
