    Came across this by accident, but I found it to be interesting enough to talk about. I didn't know this, but apparently there is a vaccine in pill form that is in the early testing phase. Let's hope by the time it's ready we don't need it anymore. The company making it is called Oravax. They're saying it could potentially enable people to take the vaccine at home. Which I think is a little scary given the fact that people have to wait 30 min after getting the shot just to make sure they don't have a reaction. Has anyone heard of this?

    It's amazing how fast we can change stuff once there's a working prototype or fully functioning final product. Once it's proven to work in one state it can be successfully changed to another extremely fast. I hadn't heard of the pill form of the vaccines yet but I wouldn't put it past the experts to be working on this.

    I actually saw a paper on this today. It's the pfizer vaccine that they are trying to make into pill form.

    Given that this virus won't be fully going away, there will most certainly be a market for this for years to come. I'm all for it provided its just as safe and effective. Wish it was an option now. Nothing easier than just taking a pill.

    Wish this would have come out first. Ugh. I'm about to get mine and I hate needles!
