Yeah - so they do make a profit from selling covid vaccines. Wouldn't be great for them if we had to have one every 6-12 months. I think you give these companies far too much credit - they have no issue with being unethical if they can get away with it.Yes.
Companies exist to make profit. Big Pharma in the US has done it occasionally in a way considered unethical, but that is more a result of their bloated, misdirected health system and political influence than any inherent evil.
People in jobs take home an income because companies make profit. And they use it to drive an economy - which in Australia is largely stagnating because we're locked down.
My work place pays for the flu shot every year, because they recognise that it is far more cost effective for me to be at work or home with a sniffle instead of laid out for 2 weeks not contributing (as happened a few years back).
