Our low cost @TexasChildrens @BCM_TropMed recombinant protein COVID-19 vaccine is being scaled/produced in India @biological_e and Indonesia @biofarmaID. Our aspirational goal is to vaccinate the world's low-income countries in the coming months

Pre-pandemic I tried to tell them that all this would come back to bite them. Even offered to help them get ahead of crescendo of rising antivaccine disinformation. Was told I didn’t know what I was talking about or something like that. But it wasn’t a super high level of contact

Just spent 2 yrs working day/night to slow control reverse the antivaccine aggression spread by FB/Instagram. Their tone deafness/lack of situation awareness shocking. Impressive how hard his policy staff works to make him disliked. Guessing he's probably a pretty interesting guy

A recombinant protein COVID 19 vaccine that uses an older technology (yeast fermentation technology similar to that used to make recomb hepatitis B vaccine) that can be scaled now. No limit to what can be produced, simple refrigeration, widespread acceptance, great safety profile

There are: 1.1 billion people in Sub-Saharan Africa 650 million in Latin America 1+ billion in low-income Asian countries, That's 3 billion people, 9 billion vaccine doses. As any engineer will tell you, going from zero to 9 billion for a new technology takes time. Our answer?

Reasons for this situation complex, among them: US G7 were too enamored with speed/innovation, and made interesting vaccines but ones that won't be scaled globally until 2023. But even without help from the G7 our @TexasChildrens @BCM_TropMed Covid vaccine might soon fill the gap

Less than 10% of African countries are projected to hit the #COVID19 vaccination goal of fully vaccinating 40% of their people by end of year This comes as the Region struggles to meet rising demand for essential vaccination commodities such as syringes

As a medical parasitologist I've written extensively about ivermectin, link to my latest in @nejm attached. Among its anthelminthic properties, ivermectin causes the expulsion of large Ascaris roundworms from the anus. Hopefully, they benefited from this pharmacologic effect.
