Did Bill Gates Develop mRNA Vaccine Patches For The Poor?!

Did Bill Gates develop a new mRNA vaccine patch technology that he hopes to force poor people to wear?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!


Claim : Bill Gates Developed mRNA Vaccine Patches For The Poor!

People are sharing an article by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that Bill Gates just unveiled a new mRNA vaccine technology that uses patches that he hopes to force poor people to wear!

Here is an excerpt for that long-winded article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts:

Bill Gates Developing mRNA ‘Vaccine Patches’ That Low-Income Families Will Be Forced To Wear

Bill Gates has unveiled a new mRNA vaccine technology that uses patches instead of needles that he hopes government’s will force low-income people to wear.

Truth : Bill Gates Did Not Develop mRNA Vaccine Patches For The Poor!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created about Bill Gates, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Bill Gates Did Not Develop VMAP

As clever as Bill Gates may be, he did not develop vaccine-containing microarray patches (VMAP), or even the microarray patch technology.

Microarray patch technology, which is also known as microneedle patches, was first developed by a research group headed by Mark Prausnitz at the Georgia Institute of Technology,

Just because the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has funded some of this research, does not mean Bill Gates invented or developed VMAP, any more than any stock investor or venture capitalist can claim to be the inventor of the technologies developed by the companies they invest in.

Fact #2 : VMAP Has Been In Development Since 1998

Vaccine-containing microarray patches (VMAP) isn’t really new technology. They have been in development since Mark Prausnitz’s team demonstrated in 1998 that microneedles can penetrate the uppermost layer (stratum corneum) of the human skin, and therefore could be used to deliver therapeutic agents.

Since then, many research teams have worked on developing and improving the microarray / microneedle patch technology, and there are now 5 main types:

  • Solid microneedle array to create microscopic wells in the skin, for the drug to be applied via a transdermal patch.
  • Hollow microneedles to deliver the drug directly into the skin.
  • Coated microneedles to deliver the drug directly into the skin.
  • Dissolvable microneedles to ensure the drug only dissolves once inside the body.
  • Hydrogel-forming microneedles to create a hydrogel that releases the drug inside the skin.

Fact #3 : There Are No mRNA Vaccine Patches

The claim that Bill Gates has developed mRNA vaccine patches that he hopes to force poor people to use is utter nonsense. There are no mRNA vaccine patches, period.

No mRNA vaccine patches are known to have been developed to date, never mind tested and approved!

In addition, there is no evidence that Bill Gates ever claimed that “mRNA patches will solve the problem of vaccine hesitancy”. After all… there are NO mRNA vaccine patches!

Fact #4 : No One Is Forcing Poor People To Get Vaccinated

The claim that these non-existent mRNA vaccine patches are being developed to force poor people to get vaccinated is utter nonsense as well.

As UNICEF points out – the VMAP technology is an alternative immunisation method that has the potential to:

  • increase acceptability by caregivers and recipients
  • make vaccines easier to administer
  • improve safety for healthcare workers
  • reduce the need for cold chains
  • enable easier storage and transportation
  • remove the risk of needle waste

There is no mandate to vaccinate using VMAPs, just as there is no mandate to vaccinate using standard intramuscular injections.

Truth be told – if people are really forced to get the COVID-19 vaccine, poor or otherwise, the “evil government” can just inject them all using existing intramuscular syringes. There is no need to develop new VMAP technology at all!

Needless to say, The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch) offered no evidence to back up its claim that Bill Gates developed mRNA vaccine patches that “he hopes governments will force low-income people to wear“.

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is A Fake News Website

The People’s Voice is the new name / brand for NewsPunch, which likely changed its name because it has been so thoroughly discredited, its brand was worthless.

Like Real Raw News, NewPunch was a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

It was founded as Your News Wire in 2014, before being rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news spread 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 personally debunked earlier:
