Personally I make no ‘bones about it’, to use a 15th century English phrase. I am ‘leery’ about the ‘vaccination stampede’. An example before the Covid-19 days was a reluctance to continually subject oneself to the ‘speculative’ ‘flu vaccine! From my past training and knowledge of the agonizing history of vaccinations, the development and refinement historically has sometimes taken eons! That is not to say that high speed computerized processing can now eliminate much time and ‘rote’ in their research which I believe is quite evident in the development of the new mRNA Vaccine choices.
Recently the BMJ, which is a weekly peer-reviewed medical trade journal, and published by effectively the ‘trade union’ of the British Medical Association came out with some surprising news. The BMJ has editorial freedom from the British Medical Association and is one of the world’s oldest, published medical journals.
They reviewed leaked documents that contained early clinical trial results for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. These files were apparently exposed to a cyberattack on the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Subsequently the material was ‘leaked’ to certain media outlets, and in particular to the BMJ reporters which gave the impression that “regulators had major concerns” over the integrity of the mRNA, and this just shortly before its approval for the vaccine release for public use.
After examining the documents, the BMJ determined that EMA scientists tasked with ensuring manufacturing quality of the vaccine, were concerned that “truncated and modified mRNA species” were “present in the finished product.”
A drawback of the documents was that they were “partially doctored” emails that came from multiple users. However, The BMJ determined that what was in there was enough to cause a discussion on how the vaccine came to be approved. Points in that review include:
- Specific regulatory guidance for mRNA-based vaccines do not exist
- Intact mRNA molecule is essential to the vaccine’s potency
- It’s unclear how the vaccine came to be approved on the heels of findings that the mRNA integrity might be compromised
“Of particular concern is RNA instability, one of the most important variables relevant to all mRNA vaccines that has thus far received scant attention in the clinical community,” The BMJ said.
It is an issue relevant not just to Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine but also to those produced by Moderna, CureVac, and others, as well as a ‘second generation’ mRNA Vaccine being pursued by Imperial College London.”
Frankly given ‘Hobson’s choice’ of Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca, I would opt for the third. Now there is a fourth vaccine that being the Johnson & Johnson. Ironically understanding that this approaches a true vaccine and they may have got it right, given the opportunity, I now opt for the 4th. from the ‘Hobson Choice’ Box!
