Scientists Develop New ‘Vaccine’ Against Fentanyl

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, drug overdose deaths reached a record high.

In 2020 alone, 91,799 people died from overdoses and a majority of those overdoses were linked to Fentanyl.

Fentanyl is the number one cause of death among Americans aged 18-45.

In an attempt to have a “solution” to the opioid pandemic, researchers at the University of Houston are in the process of creating a new “vaccine” that prevents fentanyl from reaching the brain.

As of right now the vaccine is in trial stages but could be on the market in 3 to 4 years.

Per Smithsonian Magazine:

In a study published in Pharmaceutics, scientists tested their vaccine on 60 rats. The immunized animals could produce anti-fentanyl antibodies that stop the drug’s effects, allowing it to exit out of the body via the kidneys. This blocks the “high” caused by fentanyl, and it would theoretically make it easier for people to quit using the drug or avoid a relapse.

When it comes to the war on drugs, the United States has taken an approach that allows people to do drugs but they must do them safely.

Since the record number of overdoses, progressive cities such as New York City have opened up injection sites that allow drug users to shoot up “safely”.

The two injection sites are located in east Harlem and Washington Heights where medical personnel provide clean needles, reverse overdoses and check drugs if they contain traces of Fentanyl.

Many families who live near the injection sites are outraged that their children have to step over heroin users on their way to school.

    Vaccine that will kill you slower probably. That was awful fast, don’t you think. I agree CLOSE THE DAMN BORDER NOW! BUT when will you all understand that Communist Biden wants that border open. With 5 million illegals in this country now, Biden plans to give them all amnesty. In doing so they ALL become legals and can VOTE! Biden is very confident they will vote Democrat and the Communist will retain control of the USA for a very long time.

    Gotta question…..will the vaccine make one immune to the effects of Fentanyl? Since Fentanyl is a synthetic opiate, it is similar in chemical make-up to the other commonly used analgesic opiates. They are closely enough related that Narcan (Naloxone) works as an antagonist on overdoses from fentanyl as well as the other opiates.

    If you use a vaccine that makes you immune from Fentanyl, will the vaccinated person also be immune from the effects of all opiates?
