The CEO of Pfizer made a potentially ruinous admission about his company’s COVID-19 vaccines, though because the ‘mainstream media’ is in lockstep with the global pandemic regime it’s not likely to amount to much.
Still, what he said was definitely noteworthy and newsworthy — namely, if we all continue to just dutifully take his company’s jab, we’ll be fine.
In, say, a decade.
“We will have perfectly normal lives, with just injection maybe once a year,” CEO Albert Bourla told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Monday. “And the pill that in case we are sick will help us make it more flu-like rather than a life-threatening disease.”
“Here the situation has been deteriorated because of the omicron, which had a very quick ramp-up,” Bourla additionally added in an interview with Yahoo Finance on Monday. “It is a disease that manifests a little bit less in terms of mildness. I mean, it’s more mild. But, you know, because of the higher infectious rates, still, the hospitals, in absolute numbers, are going much higher in terms of severe disease, ICUs’ occupation, et cetera, et cetera.”
Then he dropped a bomb.
“So — and we know that the two doses of the vaccine offer very limited protection if any. The three doses, with the booster, they offer reasonable protection against hospitalization and deaths.”
— ‘Two weeks to slow the spread.’
— Don’t worry about a mask.
— Wear a mask. Oh, and socially distance, as well.
— We have to lock down the country for a couple more months. It’s to continue to ‘slow the spread.’
— Right, the spread isn’t being slowed, and we don’t have a vaccine yet, so yeah, the lockdowns have to continue.
— Hey, we have vaccines now so we’re good.
— Make sure you get a vaccine. Herd immunity won’t cut it for this virus.
— Uh, some will require — well, most will require — two vaccine doses.
— Even if you’re vaccinated, you’ll still need to mask up and socially distance.
— Now you’re going to need a vaccine booster as well, but only one.
— Okay, maybe two boosters.
— Well…..come to think of it….disregard literally everything we’ve been saying for nearly two years. Line up on our cue to get your vaccine over and over again. And if you don’t, we’ll cut you out of society.
Western Journal notes:
So the return to normalcy we were long ago promised if we took a few shots seems to have evaporated. Because it looks like the shots by Pfizer and others are not working as well against omicron as planned.
But wait, omicron isn’t that serious in most parts of the country — so, why the booster at all?
Because the boosters ‘keep you from getting as sick.’ Oh.
““I believe it will continue to be present because it’s spread everywhere and because both natural infection and vaccinations seem to produce not very durable immune protection, so it’s going to be coming again and again,” Bourla told CNBC.
“But we can have it perfectly controlled … hopefully, with annual revaccination and with pills available and with our ability to stay constantly ahead of the virus because we can produce very fast, we can make the newest version 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 over the vaccine, but it will be more and more effective as the virus mutates.”
Cha-ching! And up go Pfizer’s shares.
“I doubt that we will reach a level — because you will have everyone vaccinated and everyone, all the rest of the people, diseased — [that] we will control [COVID], say, within the next 10 years this virus will continue to be present,” Bourla said.
Obviously, Bourla — and Pfizer — are in this for the long haul. And why not? This is what billion-dollar vaccines will do too, um, for, society.
“Modern medicine works seeming miracles and there’s a lot to be thankful for. But it also works a lot of profits. And we know where the love of money can lead,” The Western Journal’s Mike Landry notes.
