Did US Vice President Kamala Harris say that virtually every COVID-19 patient in the hospitals are vaccinated?!
Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : VP Kamala Harris Say All COVID-19 Patients Are Vaccinated!
People are sharing a video of US Vice President Kamala Harris saying that virtually every COVID-19 in the hospitals are vaccinated.
In the video, she can be heard saying,
It was originally posted on Twitter, but was quickly shared on Facebook and later, WhatsApp, as evidence that people were weakened by the COVID-19 vaccines.
Truth : Kamala Harris Said That All COVID-19 Patients Are Unvaccinated!
The truth is – the video was edited to make the US Vice President look as if she was speaking out against vaccination. That’s completely false.
Fact #1 : Audio In The Video Was Edited
The video was edited to make Kamala Harris sound as if she said “vaccinated”, when she actually said “unvaccinated”.
Take a look at this montage of the edited video that went viral, and the original video.
You can clearly hear Harris say that “Virtually every person who is in the hospital sick with COVID-19 right now is unvaccinated.”
She then said, “virtually every person who has recently died from COVID-19 was unvaccinated.”
Fact #2 : Video Was Recorded At Vaccine Mobilisation Event
The video was originally recorded at a vaccine mobilisation event in Detroit, Michigan on 12 July 2021.
Why on Earth would the Vice President be claiming that vaccination causes hospitalisation at a vaccine mobilisation event?
More so when she later said, “So, it is time, and it is time to roll up your sleeves and get the shot.”
Fact #3 : Full Transcript Is Available Online
You can also read the full transcript on The American Presidency Project website. Here is the relevant section, with my emphasis in bold and underline :
Fact #4 : Full Video Is Available Online
You can also watch the video of the entire event on YouTube!
She starts speaking about this at around 45 minutes and 50 seconds of the video.
Fact #5 : Hospitalisation Rate Comparisons Are Available
Hospitalisation rate comparisons of vaccinated and unvaccinated people are available online.
Here is an example from the CDC, showing the hospitalisation rate of fully-vaccinated persons vs. unvaccinated persons.
The difference is so stark, it’s not even funny. According to the CDC, unvaccinated people are :
- 18-49 years old : 14X more likely to be hospitalised
- 50-64 years old : 15X more likely to be hospitalised
- 65 and older : 9X more likely to be hospitalised
