You know what time it is?
It’s the same time it always is.
Time to cancel cardio.
Pfizer Inc and German partner BioNTech said on Monday they had sought U.S. authorization for a COVID-19 vaccine retooled to target the Omicron variant.
The request to the Food and Drug Administration was for a so-called bivalent vaccine containing the dominant BA.4/BA.5 variants of the virus along with the original coronavirus strain. It is intended for ages 12 and above.
Pfizer said it was ready to deliver doses for September under a $3.2 billion deal in place with the U.S. government for 105 million doses, including the Omicron-tailored shots.
“Having rapidly scaled up production, we are positioned to immediately begin distribution of the bivalent Omicron BA.4/BA.5 boosters, if authorized,” Pfizer Chief Executive Albert Bourla said in a statement.
The FDA in June asked COVID-19 vaccine makers to tailor shots to target the two subvariants, and said it would not require new studies testing the shots in humans for authorization, similar to how annual changes to flu vaccines are handled.
It’s an emergency.

It’s the never-ending emergency.
Everything is always an emergency, forever. The Ukraine Democracy is an emergency. Black people are an emergency. Child trannies are an emergency.
Everything is an emergency, forever.
Emergency for what ?

Crimes against humanity. Pfizer and those who pushed these injections and using them on children should be all tried. Genuinely makes me sick how they get away with this.
