Theory vs. Conclusion: An Ongoing Issue In Scientific Discussions
According to the CDC, "We are still learning about how the virus spreads and the severity of illness it causes," yet so much information about COVID-19 that we hear in the mainstream media (MSM) and from our Governor, members of the Federal COVID-19 Task Force and popular TV Doctors is presented purely as "fact." Any alternative viewpoints are often dismissed, quieted or suppressed.

Available COVID-19 Vaccines
According to an article on icandecide.org: Many Americans have been led to believe that a COVID-19 vaccine will prevent individuals from having a serious case of COVID-19 and will stop people from spreading it to others. However, the clinical trials for Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson’s products are not designed to determine either of these.
Both Pfizer and Moderna published data suggesting that COVID-19 vaccines might reduce the spread of virus, but the data requires closer scrutiny according to many mainstream media outlets, including Time Magazine.
The FDA has provided emergency use authorization of 3 separate COVID-19 vaccines to date. You can find the latest information about authorization vs. approval at the following address: FDA.gov/emergency-preparedness-and-response/coronavirus-disease-2019-covid-19/covid-19-vaccines
On December 11, 2020, the FDA issued the first emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine to be distributed in the U.S. for use in individuals 16 years and older.

Yale researchers identified several specific sex-linked immune system differences that can impact on male susceptibility to severe COVID-19, as well as to female heightened reactivity to COVID-19 vaccination. It appeared that women tended to mount a stronger T-cell response to infection in general. In contrast, men in the early stages of COVID-19 infection showed higher levels of cytokines, inflammatory proteins involved in the “first response” to invading pathogens.
