Pfizer in Major Marketing Push to End Pandemic

Uploaded: Apr 1, 2021
Fauci: “This is a game changer”

US-based drug maker Pfizer announced today that it has successfully test-marketed its covid vaccine in a unique package with the company’s Erectile Dysfunction pill Viagra. Emergency FDA approval is anticipated shortly.

“We know that there’s been vaccine resistance among older men, especially in some parts of the country,” said CEO Albert Bourla. “We were stuck for how to address that - running some ideas up the flagpole, and this one popped-out. The Venn diagrams of potential customers and vaccine resistors overlap almost perfectly.”

The company chose Utah, Nebraska and Arkansas to test its concept. “We were particularly gratified by the reception in the Beehive State,” continued Bourla. “The governor’s office called it a win/win for public health, under the state's motto ‘Go forth and multiply.’”

Nebraskans were similarly upbeat: “It’s been a long year here, and there just ain’t that much to do,” said one Cornhusker.

The CDC’s response has been upbeat. “We hope that other vaccine makers will get creative and market their own package deals. We favor stiff competition, but Pfizer’s clearly got out ahead. I mean, what’s J&J got to offer – Tylenol?”

Pfizer will conduct its campaign under the title “Operation Hard Immunity.”

America’s epidemiologist, Dr. Anthony Fauci, expressed optimism. “This is big. It being April First, we’d be Foolish to think the pandemic won’t peter-out in the second quarter.”
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?

Great news on the same day the Oakland A's announce they plan to out spend the Mets and every other team on signing all-stars, with Billy Beanne saying, "screw analytics, and money ball b.s., we are finally going to start throwing money at players".

Marketing during a pandemic is no easy task. Yes, it's still important to push your outreach goals with regards.

INDIA! Vaccines Or Vitamins & Minerals? Now that France has completed studies on the efficacy of maintaining Vitamin D levels as well as Vitamin C, with needed minerals, a shift in understanding is occuring.

Reports that autopsies are indicating those with well above average Vitamin D3 are not found in Covid diagnosed deaths.

I would like to see American Corporations at least split our charitable contributions to India: 97% Vaccines and at least 3% Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, and Minerals.

An effective prophylaxis of 3% Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, and Minerals seems to buy as much more protection than 97% of the dollars pushed 100% into Vaccines.

3% does not seem to be significantly misusing charity and seems to be better than the long term consequences of the vaccines that we will not know until after May 2023.

What's magic about May 2023? A large diverse group of respected researchers are saying that most long term effects are seen within 18 to 24 months as regards to vaccines. That's the date we can party again... hopefully.

Tests on Vitamin D3 are inconclusive. There are reasons to take vitamin D supplements, but claiming that there are beneficial with Covid-19 when we have a safe and tested vaccine available are misguided.
As far as Pfizer is concerned, they should be licensing their technology, and if they refuse, we should issue patent waivers to get this vaccine to the rest of the world. They have already made huge profits, and they need incentive to figure how how they are going to stop covid-19 around the world, and not just hold out for obscene profits. Most of the research they depend on is government funded. Their "intellectual property" is miniscule, yet they have complete control over it because the research taxpayers fund is not patented.
