Did British Study Confirm 1 Billion People Now Have VAIDS?!

Did a British study confirm that over 1 billion people now have VAIDS from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!


Claim : British Study Confirmed 1 Billion People Now Have VAIDS!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that a British study confirmed that over 1 billion people now have VAIDS (Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine!

Truth : British Study Did Not Confirm 1 Billion People Have VAIDS!

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

Fact #1 : Vaccine AIDS Does Not Exist

Let me start by pointing out that there is no medical disease called Vaccine AIDS or VAIDS – Vaccine-Induced Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. It appears to be something made-up by anti-vaccination activists to scare people.

AIDS is caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Nothing else causes AIDS. Certainly no vaccine, not even the COVID-19 vaccine, causes AIDS.

Robert Charles Gallo – one of the two scientists who independently discovered that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was responsible for AIDS, said in response to the 2021 claim by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro that COVID-19 vaccines cause AIDS:

[I]t’s hard to believe anyone would claim that the covid-19 vaccine causes AIDS. We know what causes AIDS.

I don’t know what your president said. So I don’t want to be too critical. But it is obvious that neither the covid-19 vaccine nor any other vaccine causes AIDS.

Fact #2 : British Study Does Not Even Mention VAIDS!

Curiously, The People’s Voice article does not link to the British study (N1-methylpseudouridylation of mRNA causes +1 ribosomal frameshifting), which you can read here.

Perhaps it’s because anyone who even skims through the study will quickly realise that it does not mention anything about VAIDS (Vaccine-Induced Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome). That’s not a surprise because VAIDS does not even exist!

So why would anyone claim that this study showed that mRNA vaccines cause Vaccine AIDS or VAIDS?!

Fact #3 : Study Did Not Say 25% Of Vaccinated Are Now Suffering

The People’s Voice article claimed that the British scientists said that “at least 25% of the fully vaxxed population are now suffering extreme immune responses to the toxic chemicals found in the Covid shots”.

That’s not true – the British researchers did not say that 25% of vaccinated people are now suffering from extreme immune responses to the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

For one thing – it was ⅓, not 25% of the 21 vaccinated people in the study who developed “off-target proteins” caused by ‘slips’ along the mRNA sequence. On top of that, the researchers clearly pointed out that those “off-target proteins” did not produce any ill effects:

In collaboration with researchers at the Universities of Kent, Oxford and Liverpool, the MRC Toxicology Unit team tested for evidence of the production of ‘off-target’ proteins in people who received the mRNA Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19.

They found an unintended immune response occurred in one third of the 21 patients in the study who were vaccinated – but with no ill-effects, in keeping with the extensive safety data available on these COVID-19 vaccines.

To be clear – the British study did not conclude that any vaccinated person was harmed by the “off-target proteins” that can be produced by the current Pfizer mRNA vaccine.

Fact #4 : No Evidence mRNA Vaccines Cause Altered Cytokine Response

The People’s Voice article referred to another study which supposedly showed that a “sharp decrease in immunity following vaccination is caused by altered cytokine response“. That is not true either.

I actually wrote about that study, and what anti-vaccine activists have been writing about it in a separate article, Did Study Show COVID Vaccines Cause VAIDS In Children?!

Here’s the gist – the study also did not mention anything about VAIDS, and was only conducted on blood samples. The children participating in that study did not report any side effect or disease from their COVID-19 vaccinations.

Fact #5 : 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:
