  1. Getting Marie Curie vibes from all this adenovirus/mRNA vector vaccine chat. Oh we just do this and do that and inject it and it works, brilliant stuff. At a very high level it sounds simple easy and safe, but once you look under the hood you find out that there's a lot of room for things to go wrong. Playing with fire.

  2. Dose mRNA Can heal Aids HIV viruses becouse it shift it shape?

    So mRNA its the base of the viruse so it can identifiable by humans ammunty system

    So is there is future of healing uncurebale viruses or the difficultie viruse ?

  3. I'll never get it. For no other reason than Ii am still a free man. I don't care if I catch the virus itself especially since there is an over 99% survival rate. If you want the vaccine, by all means get it. If you want to force it on people you are a tyrant and an enemy of freedom… period.

  4. I got the vector vaccine (JnJ) back in April '21. I thought the technology, while not as elegant as the MRNA or PFE vaccine, seemed as effective in keeping people out of the hospital and alive. Only needing one injection was another benny.
