Did anyone older than 17 get a first dose of Pfizer in the last month?

Yes, me and my husband, sadly both way over 18.


It was Zurich Messe, I imagine they get more Pfizer than other smaller places.

Moderna, with a HUUUUGE disclaimer stating that the vaccination is carried out as a so-called "off-label use"....

largest ever clinical trial offered for free to the pharma industry.

Do I feel like a guinea pig?....I do.

Of all the places to make a totally incorrect claim (off label), a forum full of expats in Switzerland, a huge number of whom work in pharma.... is probably not the place to do it.

Here is the label https://www.modernacovid19global.com...ge-leaflet.pdf. It clearly states "Covid-19 vaccine". It'd be "off-label" if it were used for an indication other than Covid-19. For instance if SARS came back and it was hoped that Covid-19 vaccines provided some cross-family protection.

I think what you mean is that in the USA it has only been approved for emergency use;

"The Moderna COVID‑19 Vaccine has not been approved or licensed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but has been authorized for emergency use by FDA, under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), to prevent Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID‑19) for use in individuals 18 years of age and older. There is no FDA-approved vaccine to prevent COVID‑19." https://www.modernatx.com/covid19vaccine-eua/

man of poor faith.... here is the photo.

off label usage can refer to various situations - not just usage out of approved indication . Also dosage or galenic form usage out of approved indication.
Among other situations - I guess you also know that ;-)

Lol. So it's "off label" in so far as they eek out 11 doses from the bottle rather than 10. I'll give you that. But not in any substantive way. This has zero difference to the patent - the dose to the Patient is still 0.5 ml - it's Just the bottle contains > 5.5 ml so chucking it away after extracting 5 ml (10 doses) would be wasteful.

To follow a statement that it's off-label immediately and without qualification by "largest ever clinical trial offered for free to the pharma industry" I think is highly misleading.

I don't see a HUUUUGE disclaimer stating the vaccination is carried out off label, no mention of a clinical trial and no guinea pigs either. Quit your Daily Mail hyperbole

Doh... the vaccine itself isn't off-label use. What was not originally intended was getting 11 doses out of the vial... they then discovered it was possible and approved that off-label to maximise doses.
