Moderna announces 2-for-1 Vaccine for Flu and Covid…

  • Moderna’s new vaccine, which the company is calling mRNA-1073, combines its current Covid vaccine with a flu shot that’s also under development.
  • The company’s stock rose after the announcement.

Moderna shares rose Thursday after it announced it’s developing a two-in-one vaccine booster shot that protects against both Covid-19 and the seasonal flu.

The new vaccine, which the company is calling mRNA-1073, combines Moderna’s current Covid vaccine with a flu shot that’s also under development, according to a press release. Shares of Moderna jumped by more than 5% after the announcement.

Food Shortages Hitting A Critical Crisis Point In America – Visual Evidence That Things Are Far Worse Than What The Media Is Telling You

By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine 

The sign above was sent to ANP by a reader in NW New Jersey – a rural area and the date shown in the bottom right side is August 24, 2021, giving us a time frame of when this particular store in this state printed up those signs and started announcing they were having supply chain issues.

The message accompanying the image said:

Hi Susan and Stefan,

Saw this sign on Monday when I went to the store. This is in NW New Jersey – a rural area. Forgot to take a picture but the butter section was low too.

Will keep on sending as I can.


As seen in previous food shortage pieces
 in this continuing series, milk, creamers, eggs and dairy seem to be products where we are seeing shortages in multiple states from one end of the country to the other, with this being the first image of a sign like this that has been sent to ANP during this second wave of supply chain shortages, even before the nation had a chance to catch up from the first round.

In the images our wonderful readers have sent since the last article on food shortages, we see a continuing pattern of specific types of foods, drinks and other products, being depleted from store shelves, while other states and/or store chains have different issues beginning, helping to show us what we need to be stocking up on before it is too late, and too expensive, even when purchasing online.

Before getting into the pictures sent showing the massively increased prices for meats, especially in comparison to a year ago, or even two, and the empty shelves from different states, we want to once again thank our readers.

Having so many different readers sending us visual evidence of what is happening, and how serious the issue is, despite being downplayed by the MSM, does a better job informing and offering proof of the assertions, that a million typed words could.

So, thank you.

More images can be sent to tips@allnewspipeline.com or wakeupamerica.spree@gmail.com

 

Image used previously from Wilmington North Carolina

 

The only reason I used an image from a previous piece above , is to prove our assertion that milk, eggs, and dairy of different forms is turning into a serious food supply issue from coast-to-coast, as multiple readers have noticed, some of which have sent over images of those sections. 

As images are used, we will list reasonably priced substitutes to what you get at stores, with timely delivery dates.

(ANP EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER: Due to renewed censorship by ‘big tech’ upon ANP articles, we’ll be running an emergency fundraising drive over the next month or so until we catch up on upcoming expenses. We also want to thank everybody who has donated to ANP over the years. With donations and ad revenue all that keep ANP online, if you’re able, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this fight for America‘s future at this absolutely critical time in US history. During a time of systematic, ‘big tech’ censorship and widespread institutional corruption, truth-seeking media and alternative views are crucial, and EVERY little bit helps more than you could know!)





SHORTAGES IN LOUISVILLE, KY


The image above and those directly below are from a Kroger in Louisville KY. The cold cuts are yet another section where we have seen in previous emails an issue with different stores, in different states seemingly having an issue with keeping them stocked.

The reader stated in the email with the cold cut section images “The cold case meat items have been out for as long as I can remember.”



 

 



Gatorade, again we used an image in the last piece, showing the same type of empty Gatorade section in another state/store.

This is indicative of a supply chain or manufacturer issue rather than a particular store simply having a problem with their ordering process.

Same goes for sodas or as some would call them, pops. Previously people have shown us images of single rows of Pepsi products with no products behind the first row, and now we see it goes beyond Pepsi and into other brands of soft drinks.





Gatorade

Energy Drinks

Pepsi Products

Coca Cola Products



In the last of this set of images, another product apparently hard to keep on the shelves is laundry detergent. While we will link to the search page, we did find some decent deals with reasonable delivery dates, which will be listed first.

SOUTH CENTRAL, PA SHORTAGES

The next two images comes to us from a Giant’s store in South Central PA, with the following note:

 

Good evening, Susan and Stefan! The attached photos were taken today in my local Giant’s here in South Central PA. I have been unable to purchase my canned pet food here (Nature’s Promise, grain-free) for months. I’ve been buying a different brand at my local Tractor Supply, although the inventory there is not looking much better.
Thank you for all that you do, and God bless you!!




 

 

 


Once again we note a pattern as we were sent empty shelf images from someone previously informing us of pet food and supply shortages, with some specifically noting their favorites brands are just gone, they cannot find them.

Dog Foods

Cat Foods

Pet Supplies

Don’t forget pet treats!!!

 



PA Giant, pasta shortage

 



MORE PA SHORTAGES

The next set and the one above is from PA as well, taken at Walmart and Giant, by a different reader.

When we noted in our last piece that images showed shortages in bulk cans of tomato sauces, I said “Apparently spaghetti sauces are also a problem at that store, which means pasta is not far behind,” and sure enough, today we have images from one of our PA readers that pasta is now showing signs of depleted shelving.

The Walmart images the PA reader sent is interesting as well where we see their shoe/boot/slipper aisle hauntingly bare.


 

 



Last but not least from PA’s Giant, we see more empty space in the refrigerator/freezer section than we see stocked.

 



PRICE SPIKES IN NEW JERSEY

The next reader has been tracking the spiking prices for meats in New Jersey, at both Costco and Shop Rite, and as she points out, she saves the images to show her grown kids because “Nothing gets the point across the seeing an item double in price – a picture truly is worth a thousand words.”

Her note:

Hi Susan and Stefan

This is from a Costco in NW New Jersey. Yes, prime cuts but ouch!!

I had sent some pictures to you a few weeks ago showing the great increases in the price per pound for I think it was pork London broil and pork chops. I am keeping my eye on this and if I see more changes I will send those to you. I have been keeping these photos in my phone to show my grown kids what I mean when I say “stock up as best you can”. Nothing gets the point across the seeing an item double in price – a picture truly is worth a thousand words.

 

The first two were sent in early September, so it is noteworthy to see the date she circled.



 

 



The next two were sent a few weeks ago from the same reader, offering us a look into the changing prices. 

Correction: Note from original emailer – It went from $2.69 a pound to $5. 49 a pound! That’s what you call sticker shock! (Thanks!)

 

 

 

 


As we have suggested before, getting freeze dried meats can often do the job, at least for salads, soups, stews and casseroles, saving the need to purchase meats from the store for meals where you are eating meat separately from your vegetables.

Freeze dried is expensive, but the benefits outweigh the cost as a handful added with veggies can make a meal, the shelf life is more than a decade to 25 years, and using it per meal, makes it so nothing goes to waste.

The different types of COVID-19 vaccines

This article is part of a series of explainers on vaccine development and distribution. Learn more about vaccines – from how they work and how they’re made to ensuring safety and equitable access – in WHO’s Vaccines Explained series.

As of December 2020, there are over 200 vaccine candidates for COVID-19 being developed. Of these, at least 52 candidate vaccines are in human trials. There are several others currently in phase I/II, which will enter phase III in the coming months (for more information on the clinical trial phases, see part three of our Vaccine Explained series).

Why are there so many vaccines in development?

Typically, many vaccine candidates will be evaluated before any are found to be both safe and effective. For example, of all the vaccines that are studied in the lab and laboratory animals, roughly 7 out of every 100 will be considered good enough to move into clinical trials in humans. Of the vaccines that do make it to clinical trials, just one in five is successful. Having lots of different vaccines in development increases the chances that there will be one or more successful vaccines that will be shown to be safe and efficacious for the intended prioritized populations.

Vaccines Topics Four images working 01

The different types of vaccines

There are three main approaches to designing a vaccine. Their differences lie in whether they use a whole virus or bacterium; just the parts of the germ that triggers the immune system; or just the genetic material that provides the instructions for making specific proteins and not the whole virus.

Vaccines Topics Four images working 02

The whole-microbe approach

Inactivated vaccine

The first way to make a vaccine is to take the disease-carrying virus or bacterium, or one very similar to it, and inactivate or kill it using chemicals, heat or radiation. This approach uses technology that’s been proven to work in people – this is the way the flu and polio vaccines are made – and vaccines can be manufactured on a reasonable scale. 

However, it requires special laboratory facilities to grow the virus or bacterium safely, can have a relatively long production time, and will likely require two or three doses to be administered.

Live-attenuated vaccine

A live-attenuated vaccine uses a living but weakened version of the virus or one that’s very similar. The measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine and the chickenpox and shingles vaccine are examples of this type of vaccine. This approach uses similar technology to the inactivated vaccine and can be manufactured at scale. However, vaccines like this may not be suitable for people with compromised immune systems.

Viral vector vaccine

This type of vaccine uses a safe virus to deliver specific sub-parts – called proteins – of the germ of interest so that it can trigger an immune response without causing disease. To do this, the instructions for making particular parts of the pathogen of interest are inserted into a safe virus. The safe virus then serves as a platform or vector to deliver the protein into the body.  The protein triggers the immune response. The Ebola vaccine is a viral vector vaccine and this type can be developed rapidly.

The subunit approach

Vaccines Topics Four images working 03

A subunit vaccine is one that only uses the very specific parts (the subunits) of a virus or bacterium that the immune system needs to recognize. It doesn’t contain the whole microbe or use a safe virus as a vector. The subunits may be proteins or sugars. Most of the vaccines on the childhood schedule are subunit vaccines, protecting people from diseases such as whooping cough, tetanus, diphtheria and meningococcal meningitis.

Vaccines Topics Four images working 04

The genetic approach (nucleic acid vaccine)

Unlike vaccine approaches that use either a weakened or dead whole microbe or parts of one, a nucleic acid vaccine just uses a section of genetic material that provides the instructions for specific proteins, not the whole microbe. DNA and RNA are the instructions our cells use to make proteins. In our cells, DNA is first turned into messenger RNA, which is then used as the blueprint to make specific proteins. 

Vaccines Topics Four images working 05 DNA RNA v2

A nucleic acid vaccine delivers a specific set of instructions to our cells, either as DNA or mRNA, for them to make the specific protein that we want our immune system to recognize and respond to. 

The nucleic acid approach is a new way of developing vaccines. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, none had yet been through the full approvals process for use in humans, though some DNA vaccines, including for particular cancers, were undergoing human trials. Because of the pandemic, research in this area has progressed very fast and some mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 are getting emergency use authorization, which means they can now be given to people beyond using them only in clinical trials.

How are vaccines developed?

Most vaccines have been in use for decades, with millions of people receiving them safely every year. As with all medicines, every vaccine must go through extensive and rigorous testing to ensure it is safe before it can be introduced in a country’s vaccine programme. 

Each vaccine under development must first undergo screenings and evaluations to determine which antigen should be used to invoke an immune response. This preclinical phase is done without testing on humans. An experimental vaccine is first tested in animals to evaluate its safety and potential to prevent disease.

If the vaccine triggers an immune response, it is then tested in human clinical trials in three phases.

Phase 1

The vaccine is given to a small number of volunteers to assess its safety, confirm it generates an immune response, and determine the right dosage. Generally in this phase vaccines are tested in young, healthy adult volunteers.

Phase 2

The vaccine is then given to several hundred volunteers to further assess its safety and ability to generate an immune response. Participants in this phase have the same characteristics (such as age, sex) as the people for whom the vaccine is intended. There are usually multiple trials in this phase to evaluate various age groups and different formulations of the vaccine. A group that did not get the vaccine is usually included in phase as a comparator group to determine whether the changes in the vaccinated group are attributed to the vaccine, or have happened by chance. 

Phase 3

The vaccine is next given to thousands of volunteers – and compared to a similar group of people who didn’t get the vaccine, but received a comparator product – to determine if the vaccine is effective against the disease it is designed to protect against and to study its safety in a much larger group of people. Most of the time phase three trials are conducted across multiple countries and multiple sites within a country to assure the findings of the vaccine performance apply to many different populations. 

During phase two and phase three trials, the volunteers and the scientists conducting the study are shielded from knowing which volunteers had received the vaccine being tested or the comparator product. This is called “blinding” and is necessary to assure that neither the volunteers nor the scientists are influenced in their assessment of safety or effectiveness by knowing who got which product. After the trial is over and all the results are finalized, the volunteers and the trial scientists are informed who received the vaccine and who received the comparator.

Topic Two CIinical Trials_Static 29 Oct

When the results of all these clinical trials are available, a series of steps is required, including reviews of efficacy and safety for regulatory and public health policy approvals. Officials in each country closely review the study data and decide whether to authorize the vaccine for use. A vaccine must be proven to be safe and effective across a broad population before it will be approved and introduced into a national immunization programme. The bar for vaccine safety and efficacy is extremely high, recognizing that vaccines are given to people who are otherwise healthy and specifically free from the illness. 

Further monitoring takes place in an ongoing way after the vaccine is introduced. There are systems to monitor the safety and effectiveness of all vaccines. This enables scientists to keep track of vaccine impact and safety even as they are used in a large number of people, over a long time frame.  These data are used to adjust the policies for vaccine use to optimize their impact, and they also allow the vaccine to be safely tracked throughout its use. 

Once a vaccine is in use, it must be continuously monitored to make sure it continues to be safe.

Surfactants

Surfactants keep all the ingredients in the vaccine blended together. They prevent settling and clumping of elements that are in the liquid form of the vaccine. They are also often used in foods like ice cream.

Residuals

Residuals are tiny amounts of various substances used during manufacturing or production of vaccines that are not active ingredients in the completed vaccine. Substances will vary depending on the manufacturing process used and may include egg proteins, yeast or antibiotics. Residual traces of these substances which may be present in a vaccine are in such small quantities that they need to be measured as parts per million or parts per billion.

Diluent

A diluent is a liquid used to dilute a vaccine to the correct concentration immediately prior to use. The most commonly used diluent is sterile water.

Adjuvant

Some vaccines also contain adjuvants. An adjuvant improves the immune response to the vaccine, sometimes by keeping the vaccine at the injection site for a little longer or by stimulating local immune cells.

The adjuvant may be a tiny amount of aluminium salts (like aluminium phosphate, aluminium hydroxide or potassium aluminium sulphate). Aluminium has been shown not to cause any long-term health problems, and humans ingest aluminium regularly through eating and drinking.

Preservatives

Preservatives prevent the vaccine from becoming contaminated once the vial has been opened, if it will be used for vaccinating more than one person. Some vaccines don’t have preservatives because they are stored in one-dose vials and are discarded after the single dose is administered. The most commonly used preservative is 2-phenoxyethanol. It has been used for many years in a number of vaccines, is used in a range of baby care products and is safe for use in vaccines, as it has little toxicity in humans.

This article is part of a series of explainers on vaccine development and distribution. Learn more about vaccines – from how they work and how they’re made to ensuring safety and equitable access – in WHO’s Vaccines Explained series.

What are the ingredients in a vaccine?

Vaccines contain tiny fragments of the disease-causing organism or the blueprints for making the tiny fragments. They also contain other ingredients to keep the vaccine safe and effective. These latter ingredients are included in most vaccines and have been used for decades in billions of doses of vaccine.

Each vaccine component serves a specific purpose, and each ingredient is tested in the manufacturing process. All ingredients are tested for safety.

Antigen

All vaccines contain an active component (the antigen) which generates an immune response, or the blueprint for making the active component. The antigen may be a small part of the disease-causing organism, like a protein or sugar, or it may be the whole organism in a weakened or inactive form.
