The UK’s approval of Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine was heralded by the government as a breakthrough for ‘humanity.’ However, its announcement was met with a surge of vaccine scepticism online.
Britain became the first nation in the world to approve the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine for widespread use on Wednesday.
One assumes therefore that a great many parliamentarian parasites heavily invest in the notorious US-based international conglomerate.
The announcement was delivered in haughty style by the government, with Business Secretary Alok Sharma celebrating how ‘the UK led humanity’s charge against this disease,’ and Health Secretary Matt Hancock volunteering to take the jab on live television with ITV’s Piers Morgan.
Not everyone was as thrilled. Shortly after the announcement, two curious terms began to trend on Twitter: ‘Swine Flu’ and ‘Thalidomide.’
Commenters did a little digging and realised that vaccines and medications have, in the past, caused some dreadful side effects. Back in 2009, the British government approved a swine flu vaccine manufactured by Pfizer-linked drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline. The shot left 60 people with brain damage in the UK and caused narcolepsy and cataplexy in around 800 children across Europe.
Many brought up recollections of Thalidomide, a tranquillizer and painkiller given to pregnant women in the 1950s and 60s to treat morning sickness. Thalidomide caused up to 10,000 cases of birth defects and death in new-born babies in the UK alone.
Outside of these trending topics, users researching a defective Pfizer chanced upon a litany of misdeeds by the American pharma firm, including illegal marketing of its drugs, swindling the NHS or rather the sorely-pressed taxpayers, testing dangerous medications in Africa, and bribing doctors to prescribe its products.
Whatever the relevance of these scandals to the upcoming vaccine, a discussion like this poses a direct challenge to the British government’s vaccine rollout, at a time when more than a third of the UK population already say they’re either uncertain or very unlikely to take the shot.
Hancock told LBC radio on Wednesday that the ‘anti-vaxx’ movement in the UK isn’t growing, and claimed that ‘the number of people who want to have the vaccine is increasing.’
According to a recent Sunday Times report, part of this effort to brainwash people into accepting the government-approved dodgy vaccine involves deploying an army psychological warfare unit to hunt down anti-vaccine content online. The unit involved was initially created to aid the fight against the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, but ahead of a vaccine rollout has been directed to wage an information war closer to home.
The UK’s signals intelligence agency, GCHQ, has also been tasked with countering what government claims is disinformation. Source
