US health agency awards $9.27 million contract to bio-tech firm to test a Covid vaccine in pill form


The following is from The Vaccine Reaction.

Biotechnology firm Vaxart, Inc. announced on Jan. 19, 2024 that it received a $9.27 million contract from the U.S. Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) to fund preparations for a Phase IIb clinical trial to evaluate the company’s oral pill XXB Covid-19 vaccine candidate.

The trial is expected to involve 10,000 participants and will compare Vaxart’s oral pill vaccine candidate to an approved mRNA (messenger ribonucleic acid) biologic.

“We are very honored to receive this BARDA award, which will support the innovative approach of our oral pill vaccine platform,” said Michael Finney, PhD, Vaxart’s interim chief executive officer. “We believe our oral pill vaccine platform may ultimately hold the promise of revolutionizing how we fight pandemics and how we vaccinate against several infectious diseases.

According to Vaxart’s chief medical officer, James Cummings, MD, the company’s oral pill vaccine could improve existing Covid biologics in “two important ways”…

First, a thermostable pill vaccine such as Vaxart’s offers the chance to overcome needle-phobia, a documented obstacle to vaccination, and offers the potential to make it easier to vaccinate more people faster than with traditional injected vaccines. Second, our previous research on other vaccine constructs found Vaxart’s oral pill vaccine to be cross-reactive against all tested SARS-CoV-2 variants and to trigger long-lasting immune responses, potentially offering broader, longer protection than the current first-generation vaccines. We believe our vaccine does this by triggering both a systemic and mucosal response.

The contract to Vaxart was awarded as part of a $5 billion initiative called Project NextGen, which is based at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and led by the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response’s (ASPR) BARDA and the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

  1. Sharyl and Full Measure Team,

    Excerpted from your above article :
    —-“. . . found Vaxart’s oral pill vaccine to
    —-be cross-reactive against all tested
    —-SARS-CoV-2 variants and to trigger
    —-long-lasting immune responses . . . “

    The entirety of modern medicine, regarding human
    health, is a placebo-effected, SNAKE-Oil-Like money
    generator, much of it causing serious harm to its
    patients (( particularly if hospitalized, where one may
    be exposed to MAL-Practice via mere incompetence,
    mostly due to dumbed-down education standards,
    for advancing minority men and women—to be
    Marxian F A I R )).

    See GLUT of TV ads for drug-pushing those ever-new, hardly tested – questionably advanced – weirdly named ”cures” / “meds.”

    As Jon Rappoport keeps explaining, SARS-Cov-2 had
    N E V E R been isolated—to prove the bug even exists;
    yet, we’re to believe its “VARIANTS” exist (( read/study
    his book – “AIDS Inc.” – about that HOAXED AIDS bug,
    which bug is a FUNGAL disease !—resulting via
    repetitive anal intercourse, with multiple sex
    partners )) ?

    Covid-19 was hoaxed—to prevent Trump taking office (( Red China, and a certain TRIBE, conspired against FAIR-Election results—against TRUMP ever taking office, as Biden couldn’t get sixty folks on a parking lot his entire campaign, compared with Trump’s multi-thousand attendee-events, so Bumbling-Basement-Biden wins ? ? ? Only morons believe that—or the truly DEMONIC, immoralist folks )).

    Normal year-to-year flu/cold symptoms had been weaponized—FOR an eventuated capture of TRUMP’s White House, and for massive financial gains (( Pfizer : from about $19-billion per year – normal profit – to Covid-Hoax-Generated profits of about $93-billion )).

    MSM are controlled and complicit—not M O R A L !, nor J O U R N A L I S T I C in the traditional pre-Abe-Lincoln definition of that term/profession.

    P.S.

    – snip –
    “Journalist” is a pejorative term—as is “conservative,” and require new names
    which can shed the MSM-/pop-culture-/Leftist-generated TAINTS, such as using “CHRONICLER” to replace the former and, say, “FACTUALIST” for the latter.

    NOTE :

    “There is no such thing, at this date in the world’s history, in America, as an independent press . . . If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks; they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.” -John Swinton ( 1888 ), former Chief-of-Staff of the New York Times, speaking before the New York Press Club—to toast an “independent” press.
