They're not going to give a vaccine out that is unsafe, so that's paranoia at work.
Try telling that to the families of those affected previously.
A quick google will reveal many stories of death and injuries caused by vaccines.
We're more technologically advanced since the horse and cart days.

Safety is always a priority

How the hell do you expect them to ever find a vaccine for any disease if they don't test it on humans?

That's the point of seeing if it works, they go through 3 test phases, they test the safety of it.

Its just the same as going into hospital for an operation and they want you to sign a disclaimer to say that you won't sue them if they mess up.

The courts protects the surgeons, what's the difference? 🙄

Society won't get anywhere if we aren't prepared to take risks for the greater good.

Nailed on.
Herd immunity and natural cures - not poison injected in our bodies.

They do safety and efficacy tests.

Poison 🙄

Herd immunity - years get to that stage

Vaccine - months

Many more people could die, but nah, let's get herd immunity instead.

IF there's a working vaccine available, it'd be our way out to get the economy back on track, and save lives.

They would have to shoot me first before they force me to have an injection :lol:
Anyway, I don't think a vaccine will come and even if it does I reckon it will have mutated and so it will be always a case of catch up.
Might as well all go and lick a bus hand rail and be done.

It doesn't mutate fast enough for a vaccine not to have any effect.

Be it immunity or making it less likely to make you ill. Unless the scientists at Oxfords jenner institute are lying?

But there is no vaccine and there will not be any either.
These are just false hopes and a way for organisations to get publicity and possibly funding to line their pockets.
Nobody is accusing anyone of lying because they don't know everything about the virus, it is just what they believe in right now.
Their opinions change on a weekly basis.

So when polio or measles was about, nah, there won't be a vaccine...
