This is a scam. When did we ever talk about variants until now? Wake up.

Have millions of people REALLY gotten a vaccine?
Isn’t it risky undermining public confidence by omitting or delaying the recommended 3-week gap to 3-month gap between doses?

Weren’t the US the one who PULLED OUT of five agreements, the Paris Accord, TPP, INF treaty, NAFTA and Iran deal?
Can any country withdraw from treaties any time they want if they’re as powerful as the US?

But big US Pharma opposes the waiver on vaccine patents and threatens “If you go ahead to suspend our patents, we're going to stop innovating.” Given that they're making billions with the vaccine orders and the fact that Covid-19 vaccines are funded by taxpayers’ money.

US Pfizer has hiked its prices on future orders of its vaccine for the EU, raising the cost by more than 60%, to $23 per dose (moderna is $18). Whereas the cost for AstraZeneca is only $2.15 and the cost for Sputnik V is $10.v

But we’re expected to believe that the US intends to defend the "rules-based order" that Russia and China are posing a challenge to.

Is mandated the same as mandatory. Strange how pharma works, if you can pay, it will be mandatory to get vaccinated, if you’re in a poor area of the world and can’t pay or won’t because of the cost inflicted on their governments, then you’re on your own and good luck to you. Big Pharma is so concerned about the spread!!!

Only 1% of people died.
Survival rate is 99.99%
Why are they forcing the injections?
I BEG YOU, wake up, PEOPLE.
It is getting so scary.
They clearly want to hurt all of us and ruin this world eventually.

Still finding stuff out about meds injected into our bodies. Nothing experimental sounding about that at all. So glad government is mandating this stuff for college kids in NJ. Scumbags

And let's remember that Moderna waived their patents to their vaccine back in October. So despite the media lies going on right now, there's nothing stopping others from making one great mRNA vaccine at least. In fact, they've had plenty of time to be up and running producing millions of doses by now.

Hilarious! Americans now are stuck in this politically enforced ‘political correctness’ and dare not comment on the contribution that’ll be made by the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine on the global pandemic effort.

India and Brazil are falling through the cracks because they have leaders who completely ignored the problem and they chose not to prepare.

Yet is now BRITAIN that that has gone from one of the worst affected countries to ZERO deaths and extremely low infection rate in FOUR MONTHS… using the AZ OXFORD NON PROFIT vaccine that they set to cure the world with A YEAR AGO.

This video had no information, substantive or otherwise, about the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines' efficacy against variants. Complete click bait!

All this nonsense happened because country with about half of youth are engineers and doctors elected a tea seller . We did the same mistake you did with trump

How is it that India is a country that is considered poor when vaccinating people when they produce more medicine and vaccines than any other country🤔🤷🏻. Something is not right with that

Pfizer has been a “habitual offender,” persistently engaging in illegal and corrupt marketing practices, bribing physicians and suppressing adverse trial results. Since 2002 the company and its subsidiaries have been assessed $3 billion in criminal convictions, civil penalties and jury awards. Also, Pfizer, the world's largest drugs company, has been hit with the biggest criminal fine in US history as part of a $2.3bn settlement with federal prosecutors for mispromoting medicines and for paying kickbacks to compliant doctors.
