Here’s how the U.S. could release a COVID-19 vaccine before the election—and why that scares some | Science | AAAS

When President Donald Trump accepted his party’s nomination for another term last night at the Republican National Convention, he pledged that the push by his administration’s Operation Warp Speed to deliver a COVID-19 vaccine would succeed “before the end of the year, or maybe even sooner.”

That promise concerns many vaccine veterans. They worry that political forces—the U.S. presidential election on 3 November, nationalistic pride to “win” a race, the need to resuscitate economies—could lead to premature and dangerous approvals under mechanisms such as the emergency use authorization (EUA), a pathway used by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to allow rapid access to diagnostics, treatments, and vaccines. Long a bastion of regulatory rigor that many other countries look to for guidance, FDA has been criticized for issuing EUAs for two COVID-19 treatments, convalescent plasma and hydroxychloroquine, based on scant data and apparent political pressure. (The hydroxychloroquine EUA has since been revoked.) Paul Offit, a pediatrician at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia who is a member of a group that advises FDA about its vaccine decisions, suspects the Trump administration might seek a COVID-19 vaccine EUA before the elections and say: “We Warp Speeded our way to a vaccine.”

China and Russia already have approved limited use of COVID-19 vaccines outside of clinical trials, offering baffling—and sharply criticized—rationales. In the United States, Operation Warp Speed, as its name implies, hopes to move vaccine candidates forward more quickly than ever before. It has invested more than $10 billion in developing eight different COVID-19 vaccines, with much of that money pre-purchasing hundreds of millions of doses so they will be at the ready if an FDA approval comes through. Three of the Warp Speed-backed vaccines have entered efficacy trials, and one manufacturer has pledged to start delivering the first of 300 million doses as early as October—though one person close to Operation Warp Speed says, “There won’t be enough vaccine in October to create anything other than a news story.” (more)
========================================================================================
The coming election will be the perfect opportunity to launch perhaps multiple vaccines with little control or oversight.

What is it with you people? You want the vaccine, you don't want the vaccine. Make your minds up people. So long as I am not made to take the ****in things I don't give a **** about them.

What's extremely likely is that a "vaccine" is released right before the election. This could perhaps be the thing that puts him over the top and helps him to win re-election.

Then the vaccine is immediately shown to be a sham, at which point it is of course too late to do anything about it. Democrats will accuse Trump of misleading America with a false promise (as usual), at which point trump supporters accuse Democrats of having TDS.

And really, at this point, if Americans can still be fooled by such an obvious scam, does the country deserve any better a person than Trump for President. I would say...perhaps not.

They don't want the vaccine. These anti-American pukes would rather people keep dying so they can continue to blame, and point their finger at Trump.

If some haven't realized it yet, the die hard anti-Trump cult are always talking out of both sides of their mealy mouths.

Bs fearmongering. Shoo.

Everyone should be hoping for the vaccine ASAP. I know the Trump administration cut all red tape so a vaccine could be available ASAP. There are multiple companies working on this vaccine which the Trump administration has funded all of them. A vaccine would protect the most vulnerable that are who are the overwhelming number that have died.

Will it be ready prior to the election? Who knows but I will be standing in line as soon as it is available. And I am very thankful that it is coming as I am one of the vulnerable.
