Why AstraZeneca Insisted on Exemption From Liability
“This is a unique situation where we as a company simply cannot take the risk if in ... four years the vaccine is showing side effects”
Ruud Dobber, a Senior Executive at AstraZeneca explained to Reuters last year why the company insists it must be exempted from liability:
“This is a unique situation where we as a company simply cannot take the risk if in … four years the vaccine is showing side effects,” Ruud Dobber, a member of Astra’s senior executive team, told Reuters.
“In the contracts we have in place, we are asking for indemnification. For most countries it is acceptable to take that risk on their shoulders because it is in their national interest,” he said, adding that Astra and regulators were making safety and tolerability a top priority.
AstraZeneca can not know and can not guarantee that four years after taking the injection you won’t start to manifest side effects, and for that reason can not afford the risk of being financially and criminally liable.
The injection maker has no clue of the injection causes side effects in the long term and at what rate, yet hundreds of millions of the not-at-risk are getting themselves injected just for the fun of rolling the dice.
Funny how these people who obviously love taking risks, especially completely unnecessary ones, were afraid to get groceries because there was a very bad flu season (and were afraid if you tried to live your life even as they holed up).
Even funnier how those who insisted on unleashing North Korea-style totalitarianism on us, in order to “keep us safe,” are now usurping our civil rights to force us to take an injection the maker of which itself does not know if it won’t cause side-effects four years from now.
