Bullcrap. The Chinese vaccines have proven adequate time and time again in multiple studies, the largest with over a million subjects.
Old fashioned inactivated vaccines may be less effective than the new mRNA or adenoviral vaccines with their stunning efficacies, but they pretty clearly cut down on deaths by four-fifths and infections by half to two-thirds. The double dose gives protection in the ballpark of a single flu vaccine dose (seasonal flu shots based on the same tech are about 50% effective), so it could be better, but that's why the regimen is two doses and not one. Cut the old tech some slack.
Sure, once they roll out 14 billion doses of Pfizer, they'll be obsolete, but we won't have 14 billion doses of Pfizer until maybe 2022, 2023. Until then, any vaccine is better than no vaccine.
