Simply, Covid is still not under control and no mandates issued can bring a definitive end to a disease that will continue to mutate as time goes on.
And while profits and profit margins are what a successful business is all about, remember that no business is solely designed to be a charity for millionaires, billionaires, or even for the federal government itself no matter the tax break or “write off” they might garner at year's end. Also, remember that when you’re talking about a business, even a business regarding the “health, safety, and welfare” of the American people, said business still requires a monetary investment to help kick start their operation, if you will. And in the case of the Covid vaccines, even though, for the most part, the government was footing the bill what with most drug makers accepting government grants...those grants themselves came courtesy of “We the People's” taxpayer dollars...which by definition means we too would expect a return on our investment.
Breaking it down into simpler terms, it’s just like if you or I invested money in the stock market, wouldn't we expect to see a monetary gain on whatever we invested in...we surely would. Same goes for those who invested in the companies that actually produced the vaccines...as in those who knew all along that once the Covid vaccines were officially approved and went to market that huge “cash cow” rewards, in the area of hundreds of billions of dollars, would be both the companies and their investors reward. And said monetary rewards would then filter down to actual pharmaceutical company stockholders... which we have since found out includes members of Congress...48 of whom have stock in Pfizer; 47 with stock in Johnson & Johnson; and includes over 50 of those in Congress who attended a private briefing concerning the danger of Covid-19, and who then invested upwards of six figures or more each in the three different pharmaceutical companies that produced the vaccines used here in our country.
Now consider this “cash cow”...Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine is priced at less than $20 per dose, yet Pfizer expects sales of the vaccine...a vaccine developed in conjunction with the company BioNTech...to total about $15 billion out of the $46 billion Pfizer expects to garner in total from its pharmaceuticals by the end of this year (which is five billion dollars up from 2020's total of $41.9 billion) which equates to a profit margin of nearly 30%. And those dollar numbers will probably go even higher now that Biden has mandated that all Americans be vaccinated...not that all of us will comply nor should we have to for the caveats of the “jab” seem to we the unvaccinated to far outweigh its supposed benefits.
And you can see that here in regards to Moderna, a company relatively new to the pharmaceutical industry what with it having had no FDA approved products for sale as recently as 2019. This company had only $60 million in revenue in 2019, however in 2020, Modern garnered $529 million in government and other grant revenues as well as $200 million from early on sales of its vaccine. And now by this year's end Moderna is projecting a revenue of $16 billion from just its vaccine sales as well as seeing its stock shares going up by over 187% within the last 12 months alone.
So how does our government make money from the vaccine...simply by making use of the advance purchase commitment contracts that assured the vaccine manufacturers that there was a sufficient demand for their vaccines. In other words, the U.S. government basically underwrote Covid-19 vaccine development costs for our three main vaccine producing companies in exchange for licensing fees, which itself adds up to a pretty penny. In fact, Johnson and Johnson had a $1 billion contract for 100 million doses of their vaccine; Moderna had contracts totaling $4.95 billion to produce 300 million doses; and Pfizer had advance purchase contracts totaling $5.97 billion for 300 million doses, even before the first vaccine was administered. Imagine the licensing fees collected...a profitable turn of events I'd say especially when the government now gets to specify exactly how the grant funds are being used, when and where they are used, and how in the case of the manufacturers they will report said use.
And logic alone would also dictate that our government's now funding for global vaccinations would enable us to fully capitalize on our original monetary investment via said licensing fees as Covid will eventually go from being a pandemic to a vaccine manageable endemic not unlike the seasonal flu, which itself demands a “jab” for it not to become a pandemic. The dollars made here is astounding for flu shots are given on a yearly basis because the flu, like now being proven with Covid, “morphs” into a different variant of itself almost every year...thus equating to a different version of both the flu and Covid vaccines being needed every year.in dictating to whom, when, and where the Covid vaccines should go. Claiming that without an additional U.S. commitment of between $15-$26 billion spread over the next three years to support global vaccine distribution "equally"...meaning to prioritize underdeveloped poorer countries...that our and the wealthier nations efforts to reopen the “global economy” could be jeopardized. But really, how can that be when underdeveloped countries...countries still mired for the most part in their tribal past...basically contribute nothing to the global economy. Just another effort and threat by WHO to dictate to us their version of how the world should be.
And so even with other options available in the Covid fighting arsenal, the fact is that it's more advantageous to the agenda to force folks into getting three “jabs” plus a booster... after all we have to support the government's Covid money making machine now don't we...sarcastically said of course. Case closed.
