I’m wondering why, if vaccination is the answer, why the government didn’t just mandate a “generic” ruling right off the bat with both vaccines, and pretty much hand the batch production records over to every (already FDA approved) contract biopharmaceutical manufacturing operation willing to start immediate production.

It would suck for the companies that developed the technology, buuuuut isn’t this about saving as many lives as possible as fast as possible?!??
You're wondering why the government doesn't just steal the property of private companies? I mean, we did that with the Indians, so why not?

In Pfizer's case, it might be sort of justice for Kelo v New London.

P.S. The Pfizer vaccine is so unique I'm not sure there is a generic house capable of producing it.

Sounds like a nice way to thumb their nose at the previous administration. I also read somewhere that the current administration officials were shocked and dismayed at the lack of planning for vaccine distribution started by the previous administration.
I read that too, the media will be taking whatever is said and kicking a dead horse for a long time...Not playing by the "rules" does that. Point being previous administrations are always set up as scape goats for new ones...happens every time. While the truth is some success and some mistakes are made with all Administrations. Hopefully this one can take the positive work of the last one on vaccines and get the distribution process working better. We should cheer for whatever helps us the most, not look back and jeer whatever didn't.

Per CDC Vaccine tracker:

38 million doses have been distributed in the USA
17.5 million doses have been given in the USA
490K doses have been distributed in Oklahoma
260K doses have been given'
Texas and California have both given over 1.5 million doses each to their populations, Florida is over 1,2 million, New York @ over 1.1 million. Good work!

Traction is being gained and a faint light is at the end of this long tunnel.

White House responds after President Biden and his family violate Federal Law on federal property requiring visitors must wear a mask. One day after Biden signs the law!!!!


"We have bigger issues to worry about at this moment in time," Psaki said.


Well, so much for concerns about Covid....

Yeah actually... I’m a little bit surprised that if vaccination is pretty much the only thing that will save our lives, then why don’t we have EVERY possible hand making it?

Is this a pandemic or not?

*Not that I believe in this type of “theft”... just saying that with every passing day we are losing thousands (just in the US) and yet we are totally fine with only a handful of manufacturers producing the vaccine.

So BA is doing the smart thing and quarantining 10% of their students while also keeping the school open for 90% of the others ....and that is supposed to show Stitt was wrong to be a critic of Tulsa Public Schools which hasn't had in -person classes for nearly 1 year??

What BA is doing is called being safe, but also thinking about the education of our young people and keeping in-person classes available as much as possible.

This was debunked by Dr Fauci.
I generally believe Fauci, but also, a lot of rump lovers have been telling me that he likes to lie about stuff.

So, just to make sure I'm clear, you want government to steal the intellectual property and take over the production?
