Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, August 04, 2020

American company Novavax released a statement about the Phase 1 success of its coronavirus vaccine: All subjects developed anti-spike IgG antibodies after a single dose of vaccine, many of them also developing wild-type virus neutralizing antibody responses, and after Dose 2, 100 percent of participants developed wild-type virus neutralizing antibody responses. Both anti-spike IgG and viral neutralization responses compared favorably to responses from patients with clinically significant COVID-19 disease. Importantly, the IgG antibody response was highly correlated with neutralization titers, demonstrating that a significant proportion of antibodies were functional.

My concern is that there seems to be an emphasis on the results with little regard for side effects. I've read some of the trial results and the side effects were less than optimal.

Is this being rushed?

Sorry to hear that. Do you have access to your car where you can use it to recharge devices?

Geez, I hope not. We lost power for about 6 hours. Just came back on a little while ago. Good luck to you!

I almost feel guilty. That storm was originally coming right for Broward County, Florida. Then it slightly turned and we got nothing but a little rain and wind but nothing serious at all. Hope they get your power restored sooner rather than later.
