Letter obtained by CNN shows FDA defended new monkeypox vaccine strategy to vaccine maker

quote [ The FDA also detailed other options that the agency had considered. But the use of alternative vaccines to prevent monkeypox "was determined to be either impractical or inadvisable at this time," according to the letter. Specifically, the ACAM2000 vaccine, which is FDA approved for prevention of smallpox, "may not be appropriate now for a potentially immunocompromised population," the letter said. ]

A potentially immunocompromised population? Huh. I wonder how that happened?

The WHO declares monkeypox a public health emergency

quote [ The World Health Organization on Saturday declared the monkeypox outbreak a public health emergency. The move is aimed at boosting coordination and sharing of resources and information among nations. ]

Maybe a virus capable of damaging our collective herd immunity through damaging individual immune systems, wasn't the best choice to let run wild through the entire fucking population of earth. Thanks, Capitalism!

WHO: Approximately 14.9 million deaths globally were directly or indirectly associated with the COVID-19. That?s 9.5 million more deaths than reported. - And this was BEFORE the big Omicron surge of Jan 2022.
