Less haste, more safety

Dear Editor

David Healy [1] makes very important points, and too often in the present Covid debacle we have rushed forward with agendas which had insufficient evidence. I do not find myself among those who say we should have done even more perhaps without knowing really what we were doing. I feel concerned at an article such as the one by Andy Extance yesterday [2] which calls for the extension of mRNA technology as if its usefulness and safety have actually been established by the roll-out of current products, noting particularly the recent abstract by Steven Gundry [3] as well as the alarming issues raised by Paul Thacker [4].
