I’m hoping this is a conspiracy theory. I really am:
Vaccinations can be a controversial subject for many people, especially when it comes to injections. So what if you could replace your next shot with a salad instead? Researchers at the University of California-Riverside are working on a way to grow edible plants that carry the same medication as an mRNA vaccine.

Please say that’s a joke.

What’s not a joke, or a conspiracy theory, is that Project Veritas is taking on the vaccines starting tomorrow evening:
“Project Veritas will be launching a series of videos exposing government health agencies and pharmaceutical companies — showing what they really think about the COVID vaccine.
We’ll start tomorrow night, with a federal whistleblower who shot hidden camera footage — and it gets more devastating with each successive release.”
I’m terribly curious. And have zero capacity to stream video right now

I have had only one orally administered vaccine. It was a polio vaccine, sometime in the late 1960s.
I had the oral typhoid vaccine. But that makes total sense, because typhoid is an illness one contracts digestively.
And growing anything pharmaceutical in commonly-eaten plants (or their relatives) is, and always has been, a freaking terrible idea. They act like that stuff is never, ever gonna escape its field/greenhouse and get out into the regular food supply. Scientists, for reasons I cannot figure out, think that plants live in little plant monasteries and never, ever engage in gene-spreading hanky-panky. Because they’ve never heard of pollen. Or bees.

I have had one vaccine that was given orally (eaten). It was a polio vaccine more than 50 years ago.
Too much hubris. Just state when and where COVID vaccines are being given and let us decide for ourselves when, where, and whether or not to get the next one (as/if needed).
I remember the sugar cube vaccines they passed out in grade school in the ’60s.
Each classroom had to line up, one by one, in the auditorium (you know, where school plays were performed, and all that) as they handed out the cubes one by one to each kid.
