Re: How to ethically vaccinate the world?

Dear Editor
Cordozo and Veasey (1) point out that the well-established phenomenon of Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) or Pathogenic Priming, in relation to coronavirus vaccines (2), has not been communicated either to medical professionals (3) (4) or to the general public. (5)
