How Do You Simulate Passing Time When Vouching for the Safety of a Vaccine in Development?

The title says it all about where we are going here.  As you probably know, the company Pfizer has announced that it is very, very close to having a coronavirus vaccine that is expected to be 90% effective.  They are now doing a final analysis to verify that the vaccine is safe before asking the FDA for emergency approval.

Okay, kids, who wants to be first?

Despite the ongoing pandemic getting worse by the minute, there have already been multiple studies that conclude that a large amount of Americans are skeptical of the “warp speed” process by which this has all taken place.  Put simply, no one is all that excited about being the first to take a vaccine hot off the press developed in a highly-politicized climate with emergency authorization, which by its very title indicates that it is not given the full vetting that it would be in a normal situation.

Common Sense Conspiracy isn’t trying to convince you to not take the vaccine.  If you think that is a good choice for you, by all means, get on the list at the first.  We are just asking some questions about how exactly these good people that stand to make billions off of coronavirus vaccine arrive at these conclusions.

As we said in the title, how can anyone know what will happen six months down the road?  A year?  Ten years?  You don’t, because no matter what they tell you, they cannot simulate the passing of time in any of their experiments.  It just isn’t possible.  So, yeah, they think it’s safe, and they have done as much due diligence as they can, given the circumstances, but they can never say with any real certainty that it is safe.

The irony here is that never mind the millions of Americans skeptical of the vaccine.  They are giving it out to one group whether they want it or not, and that is doctors and nurses on the front line.  I mean, it’s the right thing to do.  They need an effective vaccine more than anyone.  But how ironic that you give a vaccine that you are not sure is safe to the people that you can’t afford to lose first.

We’re sure it will be fine, but man, that’s not a good way to do business.

What do you think?  Would you take the vaccine on the first run?  Why or why not?  We want to hear what you think in the comments below.
