Probably the best thing that can happen to many vaccinated persons is to get the COVID Delta variant so as to develop full natural immunity.
Was this a surprise?
Pfizer is raising the price of its covid-19 vaccine in Europe by over 25% under a newly negotiated contract with the European Union, according to a report from the Financial Times. Competitor Moderna is also hiking the price of its vaccine in Europe by roughly 10%.
WIND: the Trump vaccines that are more of a therapeutic than a vaccine (do not yield immunity, but suppress symptoms) and with all probability need a yearly booster shot.
Raise the price and charge for booster shots. What a gravy train! And with government guarantees all along. This is not take-a-risk business, it was/is guaranteed profit—not exactly a free market thing.
I’ve never supported a “windfall” profits tax (laws of supply and demand vis-a-vis competition are far superior), but we don’t have that here. Something around a 150% tax rate seems about right for these pigs, slopping at the canyon-sized trough of public money.
Actually, I’d like to see the bulk of the profits seized and used to benefit those harmed by the COVID lockdowns and similar.
