    Never been more proud of Munster 😉

    Never known a vaccine to skip the normal 10 -12 year non human trials and have the largest human trial in history. The human test subjects must have total fate in their rulers and the system. I don’t know why?

    Also, I have never known a person to receive a normal vaccinate and still be capable of getting and transmitting the the disease?
    That’s interesting!
