"(Pharma has to be making a killing)"
Big Pharma WAS making an annual killing off of the 'vaccine' business for many years, but recent scrutiny by researchers showed the 'vaccines' weren't as effective as they claimed, an increasing number of people were declining to have them, and most had mercury and other many long term side effects......Profits were dropping.
What to do? ..........create a scare virus........[pretend] you don't have a 'vaccine' (believe it or not)....THEN next year, again bribe the media and politicians into forcing everyone to have a 'vaccine'. They already have Bill Gates on-board (perhaps he has his fortune in 'Pharma') and Bill is already in the 'Fake News' media promoting 'vaccines' need to be 'must get or ???' laws.
In the meantime, the Big Pharma's medical equipment supply subsidiaries are currently raking in the cash, they aren't suffering, until next year's 'vaccine season''.
Watch for this in their 'Forward Looking Statements' in their Annual Reports (it will be subtly worded---wink-wink-nod-nod type stuff.)
