Pfizer applies for FDA emergency use authorization for coronavirus vaccine

https://www.axios.com/

Pfizer and Germany's BioNTech said that they applied on Friday for an FDA emergency use authorization for their coronavirus vaccine.

Why it matters: This could set the stage for initial vaccine distribution in the U.S. by mid-to-late December. It also comes less than two weeks after Pfizer released efficacy data for its vaccine, and just days after releasing safety data — which suggests that fellow vaccine developer Moderna may apply for its emergency use authorization around Thanksgiving.

The herpetologist in the office next door to mine took the university's suggested free test.  It came back positive.  He's experiencing symptoms now.  We spoke twice on Tuesday and Wednesday from office doors, 6' away, one masked both times.  We're not close but he's a friend.  Got his PhD from my alma mater.

Here's a good overview article about the Pfizer, Moderna, and Astra Zeneca COVID vaccines.

WaPo is publishing this for free.  (I can post the article here if it's blocked.)

Neil Gorsuch's majority opinion in this case is absurd-- or, at least, unscientific.  He doesn't understand the biology and physics of aerosol COVID infestation.

Meanwhile, look at this precedent.

From the Supreme Court over 100 years ago...

“The Constitution does not import an absolute right in each person to be, at all times and in all circumstances, wholly freed from restraint. A community has the right to protect itself against an epidemic, and its members may at times, under the pressure of great dangers, be subjected to such restraint, to be enforced by reasonable regulations, as the safety of the general public may demand.” Jacobson vs Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11, 7-2 majority

Wow!

Idiot conservative SCOTUS justices!  (The current ones.)  Morons.
