I'd think defenestration as a possible side effect as well

Does it come with a free side of Russian window glass and some polonium tea to wash it down with?

These mudskippers, do you get them all over or just on your trunk and lower limbs?

Comes with a vodka chaser for synergistic effect.

Based on the fact that people have gotten reinfected and that some people have lost the antibodies within 2-3 months after an infection, I tend to think that a vaccine isn't possible. But I'm just a poker player not a scientist.

FTFA:
Russia has released no scientific data as to the safety and effectiveness of its vaccine.

Well, that's always a great sign... It's so safe and effective they are keeping their results secret. Because reasons.

Well, sure, gear up for it.  Syringes, alcohol wipes, etc, get 'em distributed to places designated to administer the vaccine. Get Styrofoam coolers to keep possibly refrigerated stuff in.  Et cetra.  Start everything that will be needed, probably or likely, whatever the vaccine eventually is.

Mudskippers? The least Russia could do is come up with something original, rather than shamelessly steal ideas from Star Trek Voyager.

So, can we get a dose or two for President Kuntface?  He seems to like Russian stuff, and trying untested drugs...

I'm sure this will turn out just fine.

I'm worried that whatever they are trying could actually make things worse.

Meanwhile, actual studies have shown that the vaccines have worked.

They're in Phase 3 tests in the US and UK, testing for long-term side effects and safety.

As to your first point. . .the vaccines require more than one dose.  The body apparently has to be exposed to the virus repeatedly to build up a strong immunity.  Hence the coronavirus vaccine will require at least 2 doses, 4 weeks apart.

And if there's anything he knows more than anyone, it's a little prick that'll probably do nothing and help no one.

i'm taking those hacking "news" with a grain of salt, it might just be a seed laid to claim "O the other countries have a vaccine before u.s because they stole our data" kinda operation.

Me too, because if the vaccine was showing to be safe and effective in their trials so far they would be blasting that data out too everyone willing to listen. The fact that they're not doing so makes me very skeptical.

If the vaccine is dangerous, obviously people would die from the reactions to it. But even if it's not dangerous itself, if it gives people a false sense of security then lots of people are going to catch COVID and die or have the internal damage so many survivors get. Either way, this doesn't seem great for the Russian people.

A) Some people's immune systems suck.  Some tests had a false negative to start with.  There's many perfectly normal explanations.  This is insanely rare.
B) I will repeat for the 80000000000000000th time: ANTIBODIES DISAPPEARING IS PERFECTLY NORMAL.  They are what actively fights an infection.  When the infection disappears, the antibodies disappear.

How many more times are idiots like you going to troll around in these threads?  Stop repeating these stupid lies.

Especially since if they were actually true, we'd be talking about death on an unfathomable scale.  Do you just secretly WANT mass death and destruction?  Is that it?  Do you derive some sort of sick masochistic pleasure from it?  I'm genuinely curious.

That's like assuming someone has a royal flush every hand. A poker player who doesn't know the odds is a pretty poor player.

"It's a Sputnik moment for many people who didn't expect Russia to be the first," RDIF CEO Kirill Dmitriev told Abu Dhabi newspaper The National last week.

Considering that Sputnik produced no actual science and was just a political stunt just to put Russia ahead in the Space Race, that's probably not the best analogy to go with, Sparky.

While you're right about the antibodies, it is also definitely possible for people to get reinfected - though we don't know for how many people this is a concern, could just be a rare few. But one of the people on my team at work caught COVID twice - it is possible to happen.

Luckily the second time was far, far milder. That in and of itself might go to show that even if immunity is not 100% after infection, at least it is partial so even a vaccine which doesn't stop the virus completely could still be helpful for people not getting nailed so hard by the virus on their first go-round, if they've been inoculated.

Russia has released no scientific data as to the safety and effectiveness of its vaccine.

If they are going to give it to millions of people without having this information, then they will have that information real soon based on what happens to those millions of people.

Best of luck to them. Unfortunately, luck is what is going to happen here. I would not want to be on the receiving end of that inoculation yet, but I do benefit from them experimenting on their population.

To the psychos above who went crazy on me for my comment, I'm very pro-science and pro-vaccination. I get the flu shot every year and have gotten Hep A+B because I like to eat raw oysters and that was recommended to me.

I'm also glad to hear that there are vaccines showing promise and that maybe a booster shot is all that will be needed.

Clearly you all need some anger management classes.or something. I probably do too. I've been on edge since November '16.

Now why aren't there vaccines for HIV and Ebola?

Seriously I just think this coronavirus might be a tough one, and could mitigate as well.

Have a nice day.

There is a vaccine for Ebola used in recent successful containment of it, and there are test vaccines for HIV.

And neither of those had pretty much the entire global medical community focused on them all at the same time.
