Did WHO Admit Vaccine Passports Were A Scam?!

Did the WHO just admit that vaccine passports were a scam?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!


Claim : WHO Admits Vaccine Passports Were A Scam!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that the WHO (World Health Organization) just admitted that vaccine passports were a scam!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) confusing article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

World Health Organization Admits Vaccine Passports Were a Scam

The World Health Organization (WHO) has admitted that vaccine passports were a massive scam designed to erode the sovereignty of countries and strip away the freedoms of citizens worldwide.

Truth : WHO Did Not Admit Vaccine Passports Were A Scam!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : WHO Did Not Admit Vaccine Passports Were A Scam

Let me start by quickly pointing out that the WHO (World Health Organization) never admitted or said that vaccine passports were “a scam designed to erode the sovereignty of countries and strip away the freedoms of citizens worldwide“.

If that actually happened, it would have been reported worldwide. Yet, no legitimate media reported on such a shocking admission. That’s because it never happened.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article did not provide any actual evidence that the WHO admitted that vaccine passports were a scam.

Fact #2 : Dr. Hanna Nohynek Is Not WHO Official

While the The People’s Voice article suggested that Dr. Hanna Nohynek was a WHO official, that’s not accurate.

Dr. Hanna Nohynek is the Chief Physician and Deputy Head of the Infectious Diseases Control and Vaccines Unit of the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare.

Dr. Hanna Nohynek is also the chairperson of the WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE), but she is not a WHO official.

SAGE comprises of 15 members, who serve in their personal capacity, and are not WHO employees or officials. Neither do they represent the WHO, or speak on its behalf. The SAGE team only advises the WHO on overall global policies and strategies on vaccines and immunisation.

Fact #3 : Dr. Hanna Nohynek Did Not Call Vaccine Passports A Scam

As far as we can tell – Dr. Hanna Nohynek did not call COVID-19 vaccine passports a scam. There is no transcript of her testimony in court that I can find yet. Certainly, no one has provided a transcript of what she testified in court.

These claims appear to be based on a video by Ike Novikoff (archive) telling us what Dr. Nohynek testified in court, and this was what he said:

[She] testified that the Finnish Institute of Health was aware already latest by the summer of 2021 and possibly earlier that the COVID-19 vaccines do not stop the transmission or prevent infection fully.

She also testified that the Institute advised the Finnish government by the end of the year 2021, that there was no basis to continue the COVID Pass. The government continued anyway, demanding the COVID Pass of its citizens. She said that the COVID Pass gave a false feeling of security.

As you can see, even Ike Novikoff never said that Dr. Hanna Nohynek called the vaccine passports a scam. If what Ike Novikoff reported was accurate, she only said that because the COVID-19 vaccines cannot fully stop the transmission or infections, the COVID Pass was no longer useful.

I should point out that it also clearly shows that the Finnish government exercised its sovereignty, and controversially its independence of experts like Dr. Nohynek, when it decided to continue with its COVID Pass.

However, I must point out that this is merely based on reporting by Ike Novikoff. Dr. Hanna Nohynek’s alleged testimonial in court has yet to be confirmed or verified.

Fact #4 : Dr. Hanna Nohynek Did Not Call Vaccines Ineffective

According to Mikko Korhonen (archive), a Finnish commentator who heard what she said on the court audio recordings, Dr. Hanna Nohynek did not call the COVID-19 vaccines ineffective.

She stated that they had around 50% efficacy against infections, and 90% efficacy against severe disease.

Because you obviously can’t check the story, why spread lies? She definitely didn’t call the vaccines ineffective. Take this from someone who can actually understand what she says on the court audio recordings. She said they had around 50 % efficacy (infection), 90 % (severe).

This would accurately reflect the COVID-19 vaccines’ efficacy against the Delta variant that was spreading globally at that time. So this isn’t “shocking” news by any means.

Obviously, the COVID-19 vaccines were effective in preventing hospitalisation and death from severe disease.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Passports Do Not Infringe On Sovereignty

Claims that vaccine passports infringe on national sovereignty is also nonsensical, as vaccine passports were created by national or regional governments, like the EU Digital COVID Certificate.

Such COVID-19 vaccine passports were not initiated or implemented by the WHO. Instead, it is up to each individual country, to determine whether to implement such vaccine passports. That’s the very definition of national sovereignty.

Fact #6 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:
