Yesterday there was a conversation that contained several blatantly anti-vax comments. I had previously included in the community description a rule against anti-vax posts and comments, but I was not enforcing it well. I will be enforcing that rule going forward. I have also included a new rule against personal attacks. Please remember to report violations.
If anti-vaxxers wish to have a discussion, they are free to create their own community. This community is not a home for that sentiment.
Any news or discussion around the pandemic. Anti-vaccination posts and comments will be removed, as well as personal attacks.

LOL I don’t care dude. I’m on narwhal.city.
In any case, it’s true. If your official stance is to ignore any potential danger of unvetted vaccines, it seems reasonable to assume that you’re on the side of big pharma.
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines went through the full FDA approval process. This is a first warning. Further such posts will lead to a ban.
Oh no! I’m so scared!
I didn’t mean that they didn’t get approved by the FDA, so don’t cry. I meant that they skipped many typical vaccine test requirements because of Trump’s Operation Warp Speed plan.
They have long since gone through the full approval process. Plus the millions vaccinated. They are far from “untested”.
They are tested, they just haven’t been as thoroughly tested as previous vaccines. While they have indeed gone through the full approval process, that process was shortened in order to get vaccines rolled out in a timely enough fashion to respond to the pandemic.
You are confusing two things. They went through the shortened process (“Warp Speed”) initially to get them out with emergency approval, but after they were out they were further taken through the full (as in, not shortened) process and now have full approval.
The have been as thoroughly tested as anything else with full FDA approval.
There is no such thing as “the full approval process, [but] that process was shortened”. A shortened process is not the full process, by definition.
Ah thanks! I wasn’t aware of this, I’ll have to look into it
