The FDA just approved the Novavax vaccine for COVID under EUA. It won’t be available until the CDC outside committee approves it. The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is scheduled to meet July 19.
I have nothing personally against Novavax. It might turn out to be the safest COVID vaccine to date. But “safest” and “safe” are two different animals: one is relative and the other is absolute.
Here are my top 5 reasons to say “No” to Novavax:
- COVID is a disease which is easily treatable. Why would you take a risk on a new product with unknown risks when you don’t need to?
- As Andrew Wakefield and others point out, we’ve never had a vaccine where the benefits > outweigh the risk. While this might be the first one, you’ll want to wait for an independent study that proves it.
- You can’t trust the FDA, CDC, or drug companies. They have to come clean and admit their issues before we can ever trust them again.
