Did Chris Cuomo Contract VAIDS From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did Chris Cuomo contract VAIDS from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Chris Cuomo Contracted VAIDS From COVID-19 Vaccine!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that Chris Cuomo contracted VAIDS from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine!

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

Chris Cuomo Says He Now Has Full-Blown VAIDS Following COVID Shot

Former CNN host Chris Cuomo has revealed that he contracted Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS) as a direct result of taking the mRNA Covid jab.

Truth : Chris Cuomo Did Not Contract VAIDS From COVID-19 Vaccine!

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 a nonsense term 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 : No One Mentioned VAIDS In The Video!

According to The People’s Voice article, Chris Cuomo revealed that “he contracted Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS) as a direct result of taking the mRNA Covid jab“???

That’s utter nonsense. Chris Cuomo and Sean Barcavage never mentioned vaccine AIDS or VAIDS in the video!

To be clear – Chris Cuomo never said that he contracted VAIDS from the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. In the video, he only said that he has long COVID, which he blamed on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Recommended : Did Study Show COVID Vaccines Cause VAIDS In Children?!

Fact #3 : Vaccines Protect Against Long COVID

While Chris Cuomo suggested that his long COVID could be due to the COVID-19 vaccines he received as he was never infected, that is not the case. After all, long COVID is broadly defined as signs, symptoms, and conditions that continue or develop after someone is infected with COVID-19.

Even though Chris Cuomo claimed that he was never infected with COVID-19, that’s impossible to know, as vaccinated people who get infected with COVID-19 are often asymptomatic or have mild symptoms, and may not be aware they were even infected.

More importantly, COVID-19 vaccines have been shown to be protective against long COVID. A large study of almost 1.2 million people in Hong Kong, that was published in February 2024, has shown that the more vaccine doses people receive, the less likely they are to experience long COVID.

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 : Vaccine Side Effects Were Acknowledged

Although Barcavage appears to suggest that the government did not acknowledge that there will be side effects or reactions to the COVID-19 vaccines, that’s not true.

The COVID-19 vaccines underwent large clinical trials, where the most common side effects were identified and announced. After mass deployment, rarer side effects like anaphylaxis, and myocarditis, were identified and publicly announced.

On top of that, both health authorities and vaccine manufacturers continued their surveillance of vaccine side effects through vaccine surveillance systems like VAERS and the British Yellow Card system.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Covered By CICP

Although Barcavage appears to suggest that there is no fund to handle COVID-19 vaccine side effects, that’s not exactly true either.

Serious side effects from COVID-19 vaccines are compensated through the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) in the United States.

Fact #7 : 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:

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!

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…

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

Claim : Amy Schumer Developed VAIDS After Third Booster!

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

Amy Schumer Says She Developed VAIDS After Third Booster

Recommended : Did COVID vaccines kill 14X more people than they saved?!

 

Truth : Amy Schumer Did Not Develop VAIDS After Third Booster!

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

Fact #1 : Amy Schumer Did Not Say She Developed VAIDS

The People’s Voice article claimed that Amy Schumer “revealed that she developed full-blown Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS) as a direct result of getting multiple COVID jabs“.

Amy Schumer has not made any statements claiming that she developed full-blown VAIDS after getting multiple COVID-19 vaccine injections.

As usual, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #2 : Amy Schumer Was Diagnosed With Cushing’s Syndrome

On Tuesday, 13 February 2024, Amy Schumer appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where people noticed that her face appeared puffier than usual.

After her puffy appearance went viral on social media, Amy posted on Instagram that she was going through “some medical and hormonal things” due to endometriosis.

I’ve enjoyed feedback and deliberation about my appearance as all women do for almost 20 years. And you’re right it is puffier than normal right now. I have endometriosis an auto immune disease that every woman should read about. There are some medical and hormonal things going on in my world right now but I’m okay.

Later, she would be diagnosed with Cushing’s syndrome, which was caused by getting steroid injections in high doses.

ISo finding out I have the kind of Cushing that will just work itself out and I’m healthy was the greatest news imaginable. It has been a crazy couple weeks for me and my family.

Fact #3 : Endometriosis Is Not AIDS

Just in case there is any confusion, endometriosis is not AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), which is caused by HIV – the Human Immunodeficiency Virus.

Why would anyone claim that Amy Schumer developed AIDS when she clearly stated that she has endometriosis???

Fact #4 : Cushing’s Syndrome Isn’t AIDS Either

While high doses of steroid suppresses the immune system, it isn’t AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), which is caused by HIV – the Human Immunodeficiency Virus.

To be clear – COVID-19 vaccines do not cause Cushing’s syndrome.

Fact #5 : Vaccine AIDS Does Not Exist

This is silly, but let me also point out that there is no medical disease called 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.

Fact #6 : Amy Schumer Had Endometriosis For Years

Just in case you think that Amy Schumer might have developed endometriosis from her COVID-19 vaccinations, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

For one thing – endometriosis affects roughly 10% of women in their reproductive age, since time immemorial.

But more to the point – Amy Schumer had been struggling with endometriosis for years. While she did not reveal when she was first diagnosed with endometriosis, she revealed that she had her uterus and appendix removed in September 2021, after years of suffering.

So, it’s the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out. The doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis that he removed. He removed my appendix because the endometriosis had attacked it.

There was a lot, a lot of blood in my uterus and I’m, you know, sore and I have some, like, gas pains.

Amy Schumer also revealed in August 2020 (before the COVID-19 vaccines were approved!) that she “couldn’t be pregnant ever again” due to how her endometriosis affected her fertility.

To be clear – Amy Schumer’s endometriosis isn’t new, or related to the COVID-19 vaccines. She has been suffering from endometriosis for many years.

Interestingly, the cover photo of The People’s Voice article were taken from Amy Schumer’s September 2021 Instagram posts. So it appears they knew she was suffering from endometriosis for many years, and it had nothing to do with multiple vaccine booster doses.

Fact #7 : Study Did Not Mention AIDS / VAIDS!

The People’s Voice article pointed to a study which purportedly showed COVID-19 vaccines causing VAIDS in children. That’s not true.

The study did not mention AIDS, VAIDS, or even immunodeficiency. It was also conducted only in a laboratory, using blood samples from 29 children – none of whom were found to have developed any side effect or disease from their COVID-19 vaccinations!

So why would anyone claim that this study showed children developing Vaccine AIDS from the COVID-19 vaccines???

Recommended : Dr. Peter McCullough Has (Finally) Been Decertified!

 

Truth : Vaccinated People Are Not Developing Full Blown AIDS!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice and Peter McCullough, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause AIDS

This is silly, but let me just start by pointing out that there is no medical disease called 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.

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 : HIV Is Different From SARS-CoV-2

Just to be clear, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a completely different virus from SARS-CoV-2 – the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

HIV viruses are single-stranded retroviruses from the Lentivirus genus, and are transmitted through sexual contact, or transfer of blood and bodily fluids.

SARS-CoV-2 is a single-stranded coronavirus from the Betacoronavirus genus, and is airborne, mainly transmitted through respiratory droplets and aerosols.

There is no conceivable way for COVID-19 vaccines, or even COVID-19 infections, to cause AIDS…. or to create a new form of AIDS. That’s utter nonsense.

Recommended : Did Top Docs Just Warn UK Parliament About Deadly Vaccines?!

Fact #3 : Vaccine Candidate Gave False Positive HIV Results

It is odd that Peter McCullough should bring up the VAIDS claim, when it was debunked more than 3 years ago! This vaccine AIDS claim was based on news in 2020 that the Australian COVID-19 vaccine produced false positive HIV results.

In early 2020, the University of Queensland (UQ) and Australian biotech company CSL, worked on a COVID-19 vaccine based on UQ’s proprietary “molecular clamp” technology. The UQ molecular clamp basically used an 80 amino-acid fragment from a HIV virus protein to stabilise the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

While the Phase 1 trial results were promising, they also showed an unexpected problem – the HIV protein fragment was generating antibodies that were resulting in false positive HIV tests.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Candidate Did Not Cause AIDS

To be clear – the UQ-CSL vaccine candidate did not infect anyone with HIV, or cause AIDS. The vaccine was merely causing HIV tests to return false positive results, as UQ explained:

There is no possibility the vaccine causes infection, and routine follow up tests confirmed there is no HIV virus present.

Why would anyone continue to claim that COVID-19 vaccines cause full blown AIDS???

Fact #5 : Vaccine Candidate Did Not Cause Immunodeficiency

The Australian COVID-19 vaccine candidate also did not cause immunodeficiency, as claimed.

In fact, the UQ-CSL team continued its Phase 1 clinical trial, as the false positive HIV results did not present any health risk to the participants.

The Phase 1 trial will continue, where further analysis of the data will show how long the antibodies persist, with studies so far showing that levels are already falling. The University of Queensland plans to submit the full data for peer review publication.

Why would anyone claim that COVID-19 vaccines cause immunodeficiency??? Where is the evidence???

Recommended : Peter McCullough Testified To EU Parliament On Vaccine Safety?!

Fact #5 : Australian Vaccine Candidate Was Abandoned

For the Australian vaccine candidate to move forward, there were two possible paths:

  • UQ and CSL could re-engineer their vaccine candidate, but that would take another year or so, or
  • HIV testing procedures would need to significantly changed.

After consulting the Australian government, CSL and UQ announced that they would not proceed to further develop their COVID-19 vaccine candidate on 11 December 2020.

… [f]ollowing consultation with the Australian Government, CSL will not progress the vaccine candidate to Phase 2/3 clinical trials.

With advice from experts, CSL and UQ have worked through the implications that this issue presents to rolling out the vaccine into broad populations. It is generally agreed that significant changes would need to be made to well-established HIV testing procedures in the healthcare setting to accommodate rollout of this vaccine. Therefore, CSL and the Australian  Government have agreed vaccine development will not proceed to Phase 2/3 trials.

In other words – the Australian COVID-19 vaccine that produced false positive HIV results was never approved for use. It did not receive any Emergency Use Authorisation. Heck, it did not even proceed to the Phase 2/3 clinical trials!

Bill Gates Invested In BioNTech Because COVID Was Coming?!

Did Bill Gates invest in BioNTech two months before COVID-19 was announced, because he was forewarned, or planned the pandemic?!

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

 

Claim : Bill Gates Invested In BioNTech Because COVID Was Coming!

People are sharing a post on X (formerly Twitter) by PeterSweden (archive), which appears to suggest that Bill Gates invested in BioNTech because COVID-19 was coming. Here is an excerpt:

I recently discovered something very weird. Bill Gates invested a whopping $55 MILLION in BioNTech that made the Pfizer mRNA injection. You will never believe the date that this happened…

This led some people to conclude or suggest that Bill Gates must have been forewarned, or even planned the pandemic himself! For example:

Thunder26 : It’s not a coincidence. It was all planned People who pulled the strings made a fortune out of this “pandemic”

Recommended : Is Bill Gates Planning To Kill Billions Using Turbo AIDS?!

 

Truth : Bill Gates Did Not Invest In BioNTech Because COVID Was Coming!

Let’s take a look at those claims, and find out what the facts really are…

Fact #1 : Investment Was Made By Gates Foundation

Let me start by pointing out that Bill Gates did not invest $55 million in BioNTech. It was the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). You know, the world’s second largest charitable foundation?

While Bill Gates may be its most public face, the BMGF is governed by a board of trustees, with a CEO and five independent experts, and advised by a Scientific Advisory Committee.

Fact #2 : Agreement Was Signed In August 2019

Both BioNTech and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced the investment (here and here) on 4 September 2019. However, the investment agreement between the two parties was signed 5 days earlier, on 30 August 2019, as filed with the SEC.

This may seem like a small point, but a mistake here, a mistake there, and you end up with complete bollocks.

I should also point out that such large investments would have taken weeks, if not months, for both parties to negotiate, and their lawyers and boards to vet and approve.

Fact #3 : Investment Was Limited To HIV + TB Vaccines

The BioNTech press release made it clear that the BMGF investment was a partnership to “develop preclinical vaccine and immunotherapy candidates” for HIV and tuberculosis.

This was not mere PR. There was actually a legal agreement between the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and BioNTech SE, restricting what the funds can be used for.

This agreement on the “Strategic Relationship between the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and BioNTech SE“, which was also filed with the SEC on 30 August 2019, clearly stated that BioNTech will complete work packages on the Initial HIV SOW (Scope of Work) and the Initial TB Project SOW.

It also stated that “Additional Projects will not be funded by the Foundation Investment except in the limited circumstances following a determination that it is futile to continue with a workplan as set forth in the TB Project Statement of Work or HIV Project Statement of Work.

In other words – the $55 million BMGF investment was limited to the development of HIV and TV vaccines and immunotherapies.

Recommended : Is Bill Gates Facing Life Behind Bars For Child Rape?!

Fact #4 : $55 Million Is Chump Change For BMGF

As the world’s second-largest charitable foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation hold some $69 billion worth of assets. On top of that, it has given away some 7 billion dollars to fight disease and poverty.

In short – a $55 million investment is chump change. If Bill Gates was forewarned about COVID-19, and somehow knew that BioNTech’s mRNA vaccine technology would be a winner in the upcoming pandemic, he would have invested BILLIONS, not just a paltry $55 million.

Imagine if Bill Gates invested $10 billion into BioNTech, instead of just $55 million. The BMGF would be $100 billion richer, not just 0.55 billion richer. Ah, what a lousy businessman!

Fact #5 : BMGF To Grant Additional $45 Million

The BioNTech press release pointed that the total funding could reach $100 million, but oddly enough – the viral post failed to point that out. Why?

Possibly, that’s because the investment agreement stated that if BioNTech achieved its HIV and tuberculosis project milestones, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation would provide additional grants of up to $45 million!

Now, if the BMGF only invested in BioNTech to make money, why would it provide $45 million in grants when it can simply purchase $110 million of equity at one go?

Imagine if Bill Gates invested $110 million into BioNTech instead of just $55 million, he would have earned $1.1 billion, instead of “just $550 million” as claimed by the viral post. Ah, you silly, silly man…

Fact #6 : China Only Revealed COVID-19 In December 2019

Finally, the viral post claimed that we first heard about the novel coronavirus that would be known as SARS-CoV-2 in November 2019. That’s not true.

While later reports suggested that SARS-CoV-2 was circulating in Wuhan in October and November, the public was only made aware of the new coronavirus on the very last day of 2019.

On 30 December 2019, the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission sent a hard-copy of guidelines on fighting “a possible outbreak of infectious pneumonia” to its affiliate institutions. It was only on 31 December that the Commission publicly announced the pneumonia outbreak in Wuhan, which was picked up by the WHO office in China and international news media.

Claim : Bill Gates Plans To Kill Billions Using Turbo AIDS!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which suggests that Bill Gates is planning to kill billions of people using Turbo AIDS from his new HIV vaccine!

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

‘Turbo-AIDS’ Set To Kill BILLIONS After ‘Disease X’ Rollout, Gates Insider Warns

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

 

Truth : Bill Gates Did Not Plan To Kill Billions Using Turbo AIDS!

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

Fact #1 : Turbo AIDS Does Not Exist

This is really silly, but let me start by pointing out there is no such thing as Turbo AIDS. Like Turbo Cancer, Turbo AIDS was made up to scare people.

The People’s Voice certainly offered no evidence to back up its claims about the non-existent Turbo AIDS.

Fact #2 : No Bill Gates Plan To Kill Billions Using Turbo AIDS

Bill Gates took part in a panel at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, on 17 January 2024. He also spoke to CNBC about AI, technology, and healthcare.

However, Bill Gates never once said anything about a HIV vaccine, or using Turbo AIDS to kill billions of people, at WEF 2024. So why would anyone claim that he did? Where is the evidence??

Fact #3 : Gates Financed HIV Vaccine Research In 1998 + 1999

Bill Gates does not have a “new HIV vaccine”. He only funded research into AIDS vaccines more than two decades ago!

After reading up on AIDS vaccines in 1998, Bill Gates gave the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) a $1.5 million gift, with another $25 million in 1999 through The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Fact #4 : No HIV Vaccine Has Been Approved

To date – no HIV vaccine has yet been approved. While two potential HIV vaccines have been tested, they were found to only protect few individuals, and the protection was not long-lasting.

HIV vaccine research is still ongoing, and HIV vaccines are unlikely to be approved for many more years to come.

And just in case you are wondering – no, even current HIV vaccine candidates do not cause turbo AIDS, which does not exist.

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing 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:

Did Study Show COVID Vaccines Cause VAIDS In Children?!

Did an official study show that COVID-19 vaccines cause VAIDS in children?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Study Show COVID-19 Vaccines Cause VAIDS In Children!

People are sharing an article by The Expose (formerly Daily Expose), which claims that an official study just showed that COVID-19 vaccines cause VAIDS (Vaccine-Induced Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) in children!

Here is an excerpt from the really long article, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

A new study shows covid injections cause VAIDS in children

Recommended : New Study Proves Pfizer Vaccine Causes Turbo Cancer?!

 

Truth : Study Did Not Show COVID-19 Vaccines Cause VAIDS In Children!

This is just another example of fake news from the notorious fake news website, The Expose, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Expose Is A Notorious Fake News Website

Like Real Raw News and NewsPunch, Daily Expose is a website that capitalises on making shocking but fake or misleading stories to generate page views and money. It was later rebranded as The Expose.

Founded in November 2020 by Jonathan Allen-Walker – a mechanic from Lincolnshire, The Expose / Daily Expose is infamous for publishing COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news or misinformation, so you should NEVER share anything from Daily Expose / The Expose. Here are some of its stories that I personally debunked earlier:

Everything posted by The Expose / Daily Expose must be considered fake news, until proven otherwise.

Fact #2 : Study Did Not Mention AIDS / VAIDS

You can read the study, which was conducted by Australian scientists, here – BNT162b2 COVID-19 vaccination in children alters cytokine responses to heterologous pathogens and Toll-like receptor agonists.

Anyone who reads through this study will note that it does not mention AIDS, VAIDS, or even immunodeficiency.

So the claim that this study showed that COVID-19 vaccines cause VAIDS is utter nonsense. The study has nothing to do with AIDS, VAIDS, or immunodeficiencies of any kind.

Fact #3 : It Was A Laboratory Study On Blood Samples

I should also point out that this study was conducted in the laboratory, using blood samples from 29 children.

To be clear – no children were found to have developed any side effect or disease from their COVID-19 vaccinations.

Again, the claim that this study showed that COVID-19 vaccines cause VAIDS is utter nonsense.

In addition, because this is an in vitro (laboratory) study, it does not necessarily mean it accurately reflects what happens in our bodies. This research will need need to be verified and replicated in animal and human studies.

The study authors also pointed this out in their paper, noting that:

There are currently no data on the clinical effects of COVID-19 vaccination-related heterologous effects in children.

Fact #4 : Study Showed Changes In Cytokine Response

The study does not show any actual changes in the children’s immunity against viral or bacterial infections, because it was only evaluating the cytokine response in their blood samples.

A whole blood stimulation assay was used to investigate in vitro cytokine responses to heterologous stimulants (killed pathogens, Toll-like receptor ligands) and SARS-CoV-2 antigens.

The study showed that there was a decrease in cytokine response to bacterial and viral stimulants one month after vaccination. But that changed six months post-vaccination – there was increased cytokine response to bacterial stimulants.

In addition, it should be noted that while the study showed “evidence of temporal associations between BNT162b2 vaccination and altered heterologous effects”, there was “no consistent correlation between BNT162b2 vaccination-induced anti-RBD IgG antibody titre at V2 + 28 and cytokine responses”.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Cause AIDS

To be clear – there is no medical disease called 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.

Perhaps your president wanted to say that, immediately after vaccination, HIV can become a little more active, which is true of any foreign antigen. Or that vaccines might activate immune cells, but that doesn’t have any meaning, and it doesn’t last long.

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 #6 : HIV Is Different From SARS-CoV-2

Just to be clear, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a completely different virus from SARS-CoV-2 – the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

HIV viruses are single-stranded retroviruses from the Lentivirus genus, and are transmitted through sexual contact, or transfer of blood and bodily fluids.

SARS-CoV-2 is a single-stranded coronavirus from the Betacoronavirus genus, and is airborne, mainly transmitted through respiratory droplets and aerosols.

There is no conceivable way for COVID-19 vaccines, or even COVID-19 infections, to cause AIDS…. or to create a new form of AIDS. That’s nonsense.

Truth : CDC Did Not Say COVID-19 Vaccines Increase AIDS + Cancer

This is just another example of FAKE NEWS from the notorious fake news website, The Expose, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : The Expose Is A Notorious Fake News Website

Like Real Raw News and NewsPunch, Daily Expose is a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money. It was later rebranded as The Expose.

Founded in November 2020 by Jonathan Allen-Walker – a mechanic from Lincolnshire, The Expose / Daily Expose is infamous for publishing COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation.

Everything posted by The Expose / Daily Expose must be considered fake news, until proven otherwise.

Fact #2 : Adverse Events Are Not Side Effects

Anti-vaccination activists and websites often mention “adverse events” instead of “side effects”, and that’s intentional.

Adverse events are simply “unfavourable” or “unintended” events that happen after vaccination, even if they are unrelated to the vaccine itself. Adverse events can include vaccine-related events like an anaphylactic reaction, or something completely unrelated like getting into a car accident right after vaccination.

Just because they were reported to monitoring systems like VAERS in the US, or Yellow Card in the UK, it does not mean that they are vaccine side effects. Reported adverse events have to be investigated to find out if they are related (anaphylactic reaction) or not (getting into a car accident) to the vaccine or drug that was taken.

Even if an adverse event was “possibly caused” by the vaccine, it must still be confirmed that the vaccine directly caused it, because an anaphylactic reaction (for example) can also occur from a bee sting, or an existing peanut allergy.

Only once an adverse event is confirmed to be caused by the vaccine, is it then a vaccine side effect. Otherwise, it is merely an adverse event, not a side effect.

That is why it is not only wrong, but grossly irresponsible, to use adverse events to scare people into thinking that they are vaccine side effects.

Read more : Why Adverse Events of Special Interest Are NOT Side Effects!

Fact #3 : Adverse Event Monitoring Systems Are Open To Abuse

Adverse event monitoring systems like VAERS and Yellow Card were intentionally designed to be open to anyone to report anything. This lets scientists catch as many adverse events as possible, to hopefully pick out very rare side effects that even large trials may not catch.

Unfortunately, this open design also makes them notoriously susceptible to abuse, and false reporting. Not just doctors and their patients, but literally any Tom, Dick, or Harry with nothing better to do, can create and file nonsensical adverse event reports.

This is why VAERS, for example, is a favourite tool for anti-vaccination activists. Not only can they create fake reports to inflate the numbers of adverse events, and/or to generate fake news, they often use its unverified adverse events statistics to drive the perception that COVID-19 vaccines cause a lot of death and injuries.

The CDC is well-aware of this problem, which is why they explicitly pointed out to everyone that :

  • Reports may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.
  • The number of reports alone cannot be interpreted or used to reach conclusions about the existence, severity, frequency, or rates of problems associated with vaccines.

For certain, CDC did not say that the VAERS reports show that COVID-19 vaccines increased AIDS and cancer by 338X in 2021!

So next time you see any report that mentions VAERS, take it with a big pinch of salt. Better still, ignore it completely.

Fact #4 : AIDS Is Caused By HIV Infection

The Expose / Daily Expose falsely claims that AIDS have multiple causes, including “drugs or medications”. That’s nonsense. Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is only caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

HIV infections go through different stages – from an acute infection, to clinical latency, before it progresses to the AIDS stage, which is defined as a HIV infection with either :

  • a CD4+ T cell count below 200 cells per µL, or
  • the occurrence of specific diseases associated with HIV infection

The Expose / Daily Expose (intentionally?) confused AIDS with Secondary Immunodeficiency Disorders (SID).

Since AIDS can only be caused by a HIV infection, the entire premise of its article falls into pieces. It’s complete and utter nonsense – COVID-19 vaccines do not cause AIDS!

Fact #5 : HIV Is Different From SARS-CoV-2

Just to be clear, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a completely different virus from SARS-CoV-2 – the COVID-19 virus.

HIV viruses are single-stranded retroviruses from the Lentivirus genus, and are transmitted through sexual contact, or transfer of blood and bodily fluids.

SARS-CoV-2 is a single-stranded coronavirus from the Betacoronavirus genus, and is airborne, mainly transmitted through respiratory droplets and aerosols.

There is no conceivable way for COVID-19 vaccines, or even COVID-19 infections, to cause AIDS…. or to “create a new form of AIDS”. That’s nonsense.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Damage Immune System

COVID-19 vaccines do not damage your immune system, because they are really just training camps for your immune system.

All they do is teach your immune system how to identify the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Your own immune system will then develop its own antibodies to protect against the real coronavirus when you get infected.

Like special forces training for soldiers in an army, vaccines boost your immune system’s ability to fight back against a new enemy.

COVID-19 vaccines certainly cannot cause AIDS by damaging your immune system Again, AIDS can only be caused by a HIV infection!
