The Cult of the Vaccine Neurotic

“Yesterday, I ran a story that had nothing to do with vaccines, about the seeming delay of the development of a drug called molnupiravir …. In the time it took to report and write that piece, conventional wisdom turned against the drug, which is now suspected of ivermectinism and other deviationist, anti-vax tendencies, in the latest iteration of our most recent collective national mania — the Cult of the Vaccine Neurotic. The speed of the change was incredible. Just a week ago, on October 1st, the pharmaceutical giant Merck issued a terse announcement that quickly became big news. Molnupiravir, an experimental antiviral drug, ‘reduced the risk of hospitalization or death’ of Covid-19 patients by as much as 50%, according to a study. … it took less than 24 hours for the drug — barely tested, let alone released yet — to be accused of prolonging the pandemic.” (10/07/21)
