FALSE: DO NOT SHARE
The Gates Foundation just lost a court case, proving that vaccines are unsafe.
False. The court case did not find that vaccines were unsafe.
In a video on YouTube, a man who claims to be a doctor from Georgia (United States) claims that a court case that has ruled against the Gates Foundation meaning that vaccines will not be mandatory in the US and have been proven to be unsafe.
This is false, the lawsuit the man references was between Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) and the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Gates Foundation donates some funding to the CDC but was not involved in this case. The court did not rule in favour of ICAN, it was dismissed after the CDC produced numerous scientific studies that show that vaccines do not cause autism. There is no link between vaccines and autism. Vaccines are designed to aid the body’s immune system by helping it produce disease-fighting antibodies to specific diseases. There is no vaccine yet for COVID-19, but an international scientific effort is underway to try to find one. According to the WHO, vaccination is safe and side effects from a vaccine are usually minor and temporary.
We have written before about the movement in the US that are concerned about vaccines and forced vaccination. The man credits the result of the court case from the work of some discredited figures in the anti-vaccination movement, Andrew Wakefield and Robert F Kennedy Jr, as well as ICAN which spreads falsehoods about vaccination and the unfounded links to autism. There is no basis for the man’s claims about Bill Gates, another issue that Infotagion has written about previously.
