COVID- 19: Vaccine with 'double punch' in progress

by News Update

As new variants of COVID-19 appear, scientists will have to adapt vaccines to make sure they stay on top of mutating strains of the disease.

In Nottingham they are already a step ahead, as work is in progress on a COVID jab with a ‘double punch’ against variants which are likely to reduce the effectiveness of existing vaccines.

Get the trial jab made in a bio lab, they say its nothing bad, oh how sad, just to end up like a drug addict who never left rehab because he's gone completely mad, and speaks in tongues because he feels he has been had by the jabby junk lads.
