There are still some wild cases (worldwide) but, (at least a few years ago) there were more vaccine-derived cases, which was why they were switching vaccines to the more expensive one.

TBH, the CIA fucked it up by running a fake vaccination program for hepatitis in Pakistan as a scheme to find Bin Laden. Ruined people's trust over there that foreign medical workers are actually there to help, contributed a lot to the local antivax stuff.

Are those the same anti vaxxers that questioned covid vaccine effacy long before the Pfizer ceo admitted they actually had no idea wether the vaccine stopped transmission ?


sei556 t1_iso5h2l wrote

I see this argument so often recently and as someone from germany, I am so confused.

Around here it was pretty much said everywhere that the vaccine does not stop transmission. It was also said by scientists on TV that it doesn't stop you from getting it either, it will only make you have milder symptoms and saves you from the hospital in most cases.

Which, if you remember back, was a huge issue because hospitals were filled up to the brim.

People here still got vaccinated - because it was (and still is) a reasonable thing to do.


dolphins3 t1_isoi709 wrote

Unfortunately, antivax has been mainstreamed in US society as a GOP political position. Trump wanted Covid to just go away and not deal with it, so he promoted all the "Covid isn't a big deal" people and quack cures, and antivaxxers along with it.

tRumpo dismantled the Pandemic response team, ignored our own vital intel, lied/denied there was an issue and then touted un-proven/unsafe remedies. He also ignored the pandemic playbook that was left by Obama. Obama successfully fought and won against 3 pandemics. Trump IGNORED the pandemic response playbook.

He also failed to protect Americans when it was finally admitted and when states were taking action he fomented discord among his cultists. i.e Michigan.

We were a leaderless nation at the worst time.

It not a hard dot to connect.


Rodereck t1_isqdmyp wrote

You know when Trump was in office he was working with the medical companies to get the vaccine released faster and liberals were all saying that they would never trust a vaccine promoted by the Trump administration then months later when the Biden administration was put into office those same hypocrites were first in line to get the very vaccines that Trump was trying to endorse lmao. Like I said I'm not Trump fan but the hypocrisy some ppl say is absolutely disgusting especially when nobody even brought him up in the first place lols. But regardless of how much u hate Trump he had nothing to do with the hundreds of lies the current administration has been telling us for the past 2 years which we now know most of it turned out to be untrue and the divide this administration has put on our country and practically started a persecution that cost millions of Americans their livelihood all so they can fatten their pockets...

sei556 t1_iss8xh2 wrote

I've just read the official covid preparedness plan of your gov. It was released in march (?) this year and already truthfully talks about the vaccine (that its cause is to stop hospitalizations and death, not transmission).

I bet if I dig deeper I'll find earlier dates with that info to, just how they were honest about it here aswell.

Rodereck t1_issascz wrote

I'm clearly not talking about a covid preparedness plan that was supposedly updated in March. If you haven't seen the hypocrisy and lies our government has told everyone in the past 2 years by now then you choose to ignore it or probably only watch uncredible news stations like CNN. The fact that ppl can still defend these organizations despite the bombshells that have been released is baffling to say the least...


sei556 t1_issctof wrote

Well this thread was talking about the covid vaccine, so it only makes sense to mention it.

What other lies and hypocrisy you mean? Care to elaborate?

Also, no, I never watched CNN (except for that one time during the election because it had better covering than our tv stations).

Our neutral TV stations actually do cover the US quite a bit every once in a while since you are a big international player and your politics are important to us aswell.


Rodereck t1_issdxkj wrote

Actually this thread was talking about Bill gates pushing "his" polio vaccines on other countries. You want an example ok well here's just one of the many lies that we're told. Initially in the beginning of the pandemic our government was spreading mass "Misinformation " saying that if you were to get the covid vaccine you couldn't get covid, then when we found out that was a lie the new lie became you can't spread it if your vaccinated then when we found out that was a lie the current lie is it'll stop severe hospitalizations. There's been many other things we found out weren't true that our own government had been spreading and having ppl believe but when these organizations spread "Misinformation " there's no one to hold them accountable for it... Also I don't know what country you are from but I highly doubt your news station are unbiased about the news they air.


sei556 t1_isslemo wrote

Can you actually link any speech where this was said? That the vaccine prevents you from getting it. Because if so that's pretty rough

Actually every citizen here has to pay a monthly fee to fund unbiased news. Of course, if something objectively bad happens, they report it as something bad - but overall they just report what factually happaned/was said.

It's inherintly boring to watch but a good source of information on what's going on.

I made some research, and here are some official statements regarding the covid vaccine in the past 3 years that were publicly available in the US (and also directed at US citizen)

The TLDR is:

There was very little missinformation at the beginning which was INSTANTLY reacted to by scientists and health departments.

(Edit: added quotations)


Dec. 21.2021


>If you are not fully vaccinated, you have good reason to be concerned. You’re at a high risk of getting sick. And if you get sick, you’re likely to spread it to others, including friends and family. And the unvaccinated have a significantly higher risk of ending up in a hospital or even dying.
>Almost everyone who has died from COVID-19 in the past many months has been unvaccinated. Unvaccinated.
>But if you’re among the majority of Americans who are fully vaccinated, and especially if you’ve gotten the booster shot — that third shot — you’re much — you have much, much less reason to worry. You have a high degree of protection against severe illness.
>And because Omicron spreads so easily, we’ll see some fully vaccinated people get COVID, potentially in large numbers. There will be positive cases in every office, even here in the White House, among the unv- — among the vaccinated — among the vaccinated — from Omicron.
>But these cases are highly unlikely to lead to serious illness.
>Vaccinated people who get COVID may get ill, but they’re protected from severe illness and death. That’s why you should still remain vigilant.

I agree that the first sentence may lead to misinformation. Not sure if it's just poor wording, but I get how that one was misleading. Overall, he makes pretty clear that the vaccine does not save you from getting sick though.


Sep 09. 2021


>I want to emphasize that the vaccines provide very strong protection from severe illness from COVID-19. I know there’s a lot of confusion and misinformation. But the world’s leading scientists confirm that if you are fully vaccinated, your risk of severe illness from COVID-19 is very low.

Again, mentioning how vaccinated people can still get sick but the chances of severe illness are lower (which is true to the current scientific standpoint)


March 17.2021


>"I would recommend it," Mr Trump said during an interview on Fox News Primetime on Tuesday.
>"I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly."

Trump recommending vaccine. I also have to agree that here he makes it seem as if the vaccine stops transmission with "I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it" (because they will still get it even with the vaccine)

However, in a later interview in december he said the same as Biden (that the vaccine merely protects you from severe illness.


Dec 08. 2020

>The president said the vaccine “will save millions of lives and soon end the pandemic once and for all.” The assertion contradicted health officials who note that it will be months before many Americans can be inoculated and that eradication of COVID-19 is far from assured.

Source: VOA

>Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, meanwhile, said millions of vaccine doses are being shipped but that, despite the good news, Americans must “double down” on public health measures.
>“As Americans get vaccinated, we need to continue taking steps like washing our hands, social distancing, and wearing face coverings to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities,” Azar said in a statement.

So this is the most of missinformation I could find. And it's not even that bad. Trump made an overstatement with how good the vaccine was, but this was instantly disproved by scientists and PUBLICLY AVAILABLE.


sei556 t1_issnrzu wrote

This one is interesting, because he contradicts himself in the video.

He says

>[...]That any virus, including the delta virus, which is much more transmissible and more deadly in terms on non-vaccinated people[...]

Which does imply they can still get it - but then the next sentence he basically says you not gonna get it if you get the vaccine.

So yeah, this is indeed a pretty bad speech of him and terrible wording.

Reading the article onwards:

>While vaccinations have been shown to protect against severe infection and death, they are less effective at preventing infections altogether. Biden's complete remarks during the CNN Town Hall included this context, although he did overstate and say that the vaccines would protect against infection in general.
>"If you're vaccinated, you're not going to be hospitalized, you're not going to be in the IC [intensive care] unit, and you're not going to die," Biden said during the event. "So it's gigantically important that...we all act like Americans who care about our fellow Americans," he added.

So yes, he did spread some missinformation with that first overstatement, but it was directly disputed by himself.

I see how such poor wording can cause confusion and make people angry, but since the real info was out there even before that and he did say it correctly the same day, I don't really see this as a huge issue.


Rodereck t1_issp6vh wrote

The real info wasn't out there. At the time of the president saying this, this was the actual general consensus and if you said otherwise you were banned or shunned. All the media was going around telling ppl that if you were vaccinated you couldn't get covid and your helping the community lols. The reason you can't find a lot of info on this major fck up is because the government along with Google have made every attempt to suppress and cover up all the misinformation that they've put out over the years so the things that everyone knows they said that was completely untrue are hard to find on the internet today because they had it forcefully removed. Cdc has even been caught ghost editing their policies without changing dates on edits. This is just one of the many lies that were told and if this is your first time hearing about this then that means the censorship has been working...


sei556 t1_ist4e7o wrote

But if you read my reply carefully, you'd know that Biden himself corrected it in the context at the same event where this first quote was said.

It was missinformation, but also put out of context and the real info was in the exact same speech (if the source you linked can be trusted)


Rodereck t1_ist5214 wrote

No man it wasn't wrong word choice or something he misspoke, our president and the organizations under him were legit saying that if you were vaccinated you couldn't get covid in the beginning and like I said this is just 1 of the many lies that had been told...


sei556 t1_ist6k13 wrote

I'm not saying he didn't.

I did confirm that what he said was wrong.

But you need to read/listen to the context given. It's literally on the site you linked and I quoted it above.


Rodereck t1_ist9phh wrote

I just linked that site cause it was the 1st one I saw that had the video of when he said it. The article doesn't elaborate the misinformation and divide at the time that this happened and frankly they all try to sugarcoat what he did. If someone like u or me were to go around saying false medical information especially on reddit we would be shunned or banned but when your own President is making false medical statements to the entire world there's no checks and balances. If it was a one time thing it might be somewhat acceptable but when you look back and realize a majority of the things they told the general public was a lie or made up it makes you question the administration's credibility...

Doesn't matter how much they pledge if they can't stop the anti vacsers from sticking their egos in the way.

I am a human being. Bill Gates is a human being. I cannot fathom the prospect of having as big an impact on the world as he has had / is doing, or having the mindset to take on such challenges. Awesome to see.


Rodereck t1_isqactt wrote

The ppl here that think Gates pushing "his" vaccines on more poor countries giving his fail track record is a good thing are probably the same ones who endorsed the Tuskegee experiments lols...

Some more information on his philanthropy

He paralyzed hundreds of thousands in India, they made him leave

His vaccines actually CAUSED polio

Another of his vaccines cause the death of 7 kids, and injury of 1200

Efforts he funded were found things were done without consent and massive ethic violations ... pressuring vulnerable village girls into the trial, bullying parents, forging consent forms, and refusing medical care to the injured girls. The case is now in the country’s Supreme Court

In 2010, the Gates Foundation funded a phase 3 trial of GSK’s experimental malaria vaccine, killing 151 African infants and causing serious adverse effects including paralysis, seizure, and febrile convulsions to 1,048 of the 5,949 children

Killed 151 infants

Without consent paralyzed 60 kids in Africa :

Link to even the original news article printed in Africa is in here:

In 2014, Kenya’s Catholic Doctors Association accused the WHO of chemically sterilizing millions of unwilling Kenyan women with a “tetanus” vaccine campaign. Independent labs found a sterility formula in every vaccine tested WHO finally admitted it had been developing the sterility vaccines for over a decade. Similar accusations came from Tanzania, Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Philippines.

Their DTP vax, is killing more children then the disease itself

And committed human rights violations

So I don’t think posting a bunch of links without a bit of context will help people understand the flaws of the Gates approach to medical intervention.

Vaccines have MUCH more good than harm to society as a whole. There is really no way to contest that. They have done so much good to society but I just want to offer a more skeptical view of the Gates Foundation. The Gates Foundation, with its funding and power, has warped and taken the sphere of global health interventions in a way no other institution has. It has found itself integrated in so many global health institutions such as WHO, GAVI and many others. And as a result, they have built a monopoly on humanitarian aid via philanthrocapitalism. And while they funded many endeavors in research and biotechnology, there is an overconfidence in the power of biotechnologies, such as vaccines for dysentery, rather than fixing deficiencies in social determinants, such as lack of access to sources clean water in third world countries. I mean, why fix access to clean food and water when we can just give these people vaccines or medicine to prove how great biotechnology is? And as the technological monolith as he is, Gates has mentioned and only promoted his personal motive of biotech related developments.

In general, Gates’s funding has turned the landscape of public health into a business that has skewed research to primarily vaccines as a pancreas for social determinants, warped global health initiatives to the motives of billionaires, and created a world where less developed countries are reliant on the biological development of biotech in developed countries rather than receive sustainable aid and development.

I know this is a lot and Gates is doing more than any of us will do in our lives but just have a little bit of skepticism on if you think any billionaire or person in general could take over and influence a whole aspect of global health because of their money.

Edit: It seems I have attracted a couple of crazies with this post. I know about Gate’s history and failed vaccination drives but also how he has arguably saved more lives than he has destroyed despite how much I don’t like him and his approach to public health. I know how much power and influence he has but I’m not writing a whole fucking thesis in a Reddit comment that’s already too long to begin with.


Rodereck t1_isq92yp wrote

These vaccines aren't new unlike this crap we have now yet it seems everytime Bill Gates imposes "his" vaccines on ppl from poor countries there's always some kind of mishap where the ppl that take them suffer irreparable damage and it gets brushed under the rug. You can claim to be in denial of his misdoings and try to turn it into some vax vs antivax argument which it is not but you can't deny that his organization has a long list of Medical mishaps when he trys to push "his" vaccines on poorer countries and it's easy to read into it but you won't find it on liberal news stations like CNN. I honestly can't believe people are soo foolish to trust a person who blatantly said he plans to depopulate the world and has such a shitty track record as him but if you don't believe all the red flags then you should go try out his latest products lols...

Are you one of the guys employed by gates?


0verlimit t1_isob0eb wrote

I fucking wish. I just believe in more holistic and social determinants based approaches to public health and just disagree heavily against the vaccine-dependent policies of Gates. I especially just don’t think rich people like Gates should have that much influence of global health.

Meanwhile, Musk hoards $300 billion like a dragon, sides with Russia on the Ukraine invasion and supports China's plan of invading Taiwan.

Like the gates foundation he could do so much good even with a fraction of that money.


DonHohnson t1_isrbijv wrote

Yea he's siding with Russia alright by enabling Ukraine's military with their only vital communication on the battlefield resulting in one of the very large reasons Ukraine is on the offensive ? Gtfo here good sir! I don't care if he wants to be paid or not it's a lot more effective then "sanctions ". Cheers !

Bill gates continue his business journey. Being ignorant means thinking this article is a positive only news.


NathamelCamel t1_isnquqw wrote

IIRC he's matching donation money for Rotary International's effort in polio eradication. This is essentially a tax write-off, though the cause that it is going to is good and the amount is reasonable given the fact that it is extremely difficult to eradicate a disease

Just think that maybe a month of profits for Microsoft can cure all of global polio

You know if there's one group in this polical climate that's destroying America, it's the Pro-Polio lobby and the Big Polio conglomerates fucking it up for the rest of us.

If I had a nickle every time some bigshot celebrity goes to congress to rant about the wonders of polio...

He's an expert on this now, and even if you say he isn't, he has a team who most definitely are, he knows what he's doing, BRO

yes Dr Gates is an expert on this now. Don't worry these people shooting down anyone with a different opinion or having a worried attitude are the same people who would become nazi's in nazi germany for sure, don't question anything just do your job and adopt the hive culture mind.

You know this is literally the entire sub? The point is to have a cynicism-free space, which is quite rare. You can see cynicism about this on other subs if you want.

Also they don't actually remove the comments, I've said negative things before

I did not know this was a blanket thing across this entire sub. That makes MUCH more sense. Many thanks
