VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- USA News Group  -  Despite the approval for the Comirnaty vaccine from Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE) and BioNTech SE (NASDAQ:BNTX) by the FDA back in August, vaccine hesitancy in the USA persists and is unlikely to disappear. Now with what PFE/BNTX are calling encouraging results for their Covid-19 vaccine trial on kids in hand, it's expected that parents are going to be even more hesitant to jab their own children. Reports of heart inflammation are adding fuel to the fire, spurning closer studies into myocarditis risk taking place inIsrael and the USA, and Canada particularly with mRNA vaccines such as those from Pfizer, BioNTech and Moderna, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRNA), while earlier this year multiple European countries suspended the use of AstraZeneca PLC (NASDAQ:AZN) over worries about blood clots. While these manufacturers are standing by their safety and efficacy, a new study on the hapten-modified spike protein used in the BVX-0320 SARS-CoV-2 vaccine from BioVaxys Technology Corp. (CSE:BIOV) (OTCQB:BVAXF) is giving hope to another method that could potentially mitigate some of these abnormal life-threatening side effects.
