    Default What is the true cost of the vaccine?

    Saw this video and it made me think what was our deal with Pfizer.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYIJxoh7gqw

    What has our government really paid for the vaccine? What other things were in the deal that we don't know about?
    Have we been charged way more than what it really costs?
    We will most likely never know. The government will claim commercial sensitivity (which is mostly government speak for "we paid too much").

    So if the vaccine does not live up to what they say or causes any problems in the future we may have no come back on Pfizer.
    It could be our government that foots any bill.

    I also see Pfizer currently hold the number 2 spot on the largest pharmaceutical settlements in the US.

    Really gives a lot of faith in pharmaceutical companies doesn't it.
    Now you can see why they need their large profits.

    more tin foil hat nonsense .

    If NZ wanted a supply of the Vax , we are competing against every other country that wanted to be top of the list.
    PLENTY of govt contracts are kept secret . Why have you not complained about all those . Only because Big Pharma is involved .

    And God forbid a Pharma company would like to make a nice profit.
    Because you work for free and where you work doesnt expect a profit I guess, thats only fair.

    despite all the proof that vax's make a real differnence ....... and Pfizer vax being one of the best.
    So, whats your alternative, you must have one.
    The Russian vax. No vax. Wait a few years for the price to drop. Wait for the usual pharma 5-10 years trials to finish ?

    I'm amazed that anyone believes that any big corporation are honourable and will charge fair prices (lol, naive beyond belief) , it's all about ripping off and pharmaceutical companies are amongst the worst, this is common knowledge ever since corporations have been around.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    1101 and KarameaDave did you not read the list of violations the pharmaceutical companies have done? Does that not concern you?

    It amazes me how some people have such blind faith in our government and the pharmaceutical companies when in the past they have shown they have done some "dodgy" things.

    1101 you say "Wait for the usual pharma 5-10 years trials to finish ?", so you realize that the present vaccine has not been fully tested. So the mid to long term affects are not known.
    Did you take that into consideration before taking the vaccine? Or did you just ignore that?

    If no one is willing to ask questions, how are we supposed to find out the truth?

    Anyone with the slightest ability to think for themselves has to realise that it is only a totally deluded individual that believes he/she is always right and anything that runs counter to their current thinking automatically has to be misinformation. It is a great idea to have a look at a lot of different sources of information even ones you would not normally agree with before making up your mind and even then reserving the right to change your mind should new information present itself. Just your own ability to be able to solve some rather quite complex computer related problems after searching for and trying out various fixes should be sufficient to prove that to you.
    If you believe everything our government and their paid for media says is always true then you have just as many false beliefs as any dedicated tin foil hat wearer does.
    I have no problem with Big Pharma making a profit but one has to be aware that that is what they are there for not because they are trying to save the world.
