At least, anyway, according to one of its greatest proponents, the legendary Fauci the Fraud:

White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Friday that the chances of scientists creating a highly effective vaccine — one that provides 98% or more guaranteed protection — for the virus are slim.

Scientists are hoping for a coronavirus vaccine that is at least 75% effective, but 50% or 60% effective would be acceptable, too, Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during a Q&A with the Brown University School of Public Health. “The chances of it being 98% effective is not great, which means you must never abandon the public health approach.”

“You’ve got to think of the vaccine as a tool to be able to get the pandemic to no longer be a pandemic, but to be something that’s well controlled,” he said. 

The Food and Drug Administration has said it would authorize a coronavirus vaccine so long as it is safe and at least 50% effective. Dr. Stephen Hahn, the FDA’s commissioner, said last month that the vaccine or vaccines that end up getting authorized will prove to be more than 50% effective, but it’s possible the U.S. could end up with a vaccine that, on average, reduces a person’s risk of a Covid-19 infection by just 50%.

A 50% effective vaccine would be roughly on par with those for influenza…

Importantly, despite having a flu vaccine that is 50% effective, we have flu epidemics every single year in every country in the world. That Fauci and company claim that a vaccine with that level of efficacy would let us “control” this virus is an admixture of hubris and, somehow for people with eminent qualifications, stupidity. We don’t control the flu and never have.

The fact is, this virus isn’t the sort that can be controlled through human intervention. Japan, Hong Kong, and Australia are all experiencing their seasonal curve now, despite universal mask-wearing and various forms of lock down. The truth is, this virus is fairly mild, historically speaking. What we’ve done to ourselves in terms of fear, however, is historically unprecedented. We are quickly seeing the world divide between the terrorized and the rebels. Churches, communities, and families are beings split, with half in thrall to their fear and the other half desperately trying to lower that fear.

Sweden was right. May God hasten the day that everyone knows it.
