What was/where is the data that Brianne was talking about?
I really appreciated this episode. It seems to me, though, that the conversation about vaccines centered around the mRNA vaccines. What is the corresponding current information about efficacy of the J&J vaccine?
My question as well…. there seems to be a “blackout” on JNJ vaccine info.
Not helpful in this anti vaxer environment with so many spinning conspiracy theories.
We need the UNVARNISHED Truth….NOT the co-ordinated “messaging”…. that “we” are being accused of broadcasting.
It’s the BEST defense against unfounded arguments and excuses against vaccination and lack ( or loss of) “free will”.
National treasures. The government should be footing all your bills. Help some seniors in southern Ontario please? Have you reviewed the data from bioNtech about the 3rd inoculation with the present stocks? Ty if you can email, or share on any of your next YouTube’s? Even just peer reviewed citation we can review? Heroes thanksgiving you are there.
