Quotes from the news wire:
Much of National Institutes of Health is this disinformation that is so widely spread on the internet, and which has, I think, caused a lot of people to be confused or fearful about what the vaccinations might do to them, and that is truly heartbreaking when we see, still, more than a thousand people losing their lives to this disease( daily), almost all of them unvaccinated, and therefore didn't have to happen.
Christians, of all people, are supposed to be particularly worried about their neighbors, if you are a Christian, or if you're anybody who has not yet gotten vaccinated, hit the reset button on whatever information you have that's causing you to be doubtful or hesitant or fearful, and look at the evidence.
What has it meant for them to be out of school, which is normally the place where a lot of socialization and education happens for this prolonged period. And what about this issue of being fearful of an illness that might actually affect your families, might suddenly be blamed on you if you were the one who happened to bring the illness in ?
There is a tendency in many White evangelical churches to assume that science is atheistic, god gave us both a sense of God's love and care and compassion, but he also gave us the brain and the opportunity to understand God's creation, which is nature, which includes things like viruses. And I think God expected us to use those gifts to understand how to protect ourselves and others from disease. If we have the opportunity to heal through medicine, I think God expects us to do that and not count on some supernatural intervention to come and save us when he's already given us the chance to be saved by other means.
We shouldn't feel hopeless here and we know what works, we know that if we could, as Americans, agree to take those recommendations to heart, that we would keep our masks on when we're outside, we'd stay more than six feet apart from each other and we would avoid indoor gatherings where there's a big chance of spread, we wash our hands and all that, then we could implement what we know has worked.

Because we have a number of these( trials), and they all use a different strategy, I am optimistic that at least one, maybe two, maybe three will come through looking like what we need, we want to hedge our bets by having a number of different approaches, so that it's very likely that at least one of them -- and maybe more -- will work.
