To back up Serge, there are at least three currently approved cancer vaccines:

I know, vaccines are preventative, so this isn't a vaccine, but there is a treatment for an extremely aggressive form of brain cancer which uses transmogrified viruses (Polio viruses? I forget).

The cancer somehow fools the immune system into not detecting it as foreign. The transmogrified virus is injected into the body, and infects the cancerous tissue. This then tells the immune system, "We've got a foreign invader here!" The immune system then attacks the cancerous tissue.

Fred Saberhagen had an incident in one of his his Berserker novels which was oddly prescient of this treatment.

Got my Moderna shot today. So far so good, not too sore.
(Our site received Pfizer first and used ~2000 for some employees, and this week received many more of Moderna and our department was next in line.)

Moderna demonstrated 94% efficacy already at 14-day timepoint after 1st dose, Pfizer didn't report this endpoint (Pfizer's reporting endpoint was 14 days after 2dn dose). It is very likely that both have very similar effect. 2nd dose is still done for both.

P.S. ...one of the hidden benefits of working in a hospital. Ben, how about you? (Mayo?)

Not afraid of the vacine and looking forward to take it. Also I would like to know if ONeil gets infected and if you get to a state of requesting treatment, will you go to private or public health system?

People are dying in huge numbers. If it is not COVID-19 (something that we do know exists) and is something that we don't know exists, then we are in deep
I have been tracking the deaths in the USofA from all sources by week and plotting the data vs the average for that week (in the past 6 years, which keeps it reasonable for population growth). The attached chart shows the deaths above that average from any cause. If it is not COVID that is killing about 8,000 or more extra Americans every week since the end of March, what is it?
