Is this a vaccine? My understanding is this is only for emergency use? And that it does not prevent the virus? The uncertainties in what is in the vaccine are troubling to me, and the outcomes of the effect it is having on people who have taken them are more troubling, those of you who have volunteered to be part of this study by taken the vaccine did the person administering the injection explain that this is only approved for emergency use and that you are part of a study not a cure? If you die from the injection will your life insurance policy pay out? Weighing out the pros and cons I am going to pass any information on questions would greatly be appreciated
