30% So high! No wonder some doubt if vaccines work? PGeorge9601 LawrenceWongST Don’t believe data can be manipulated This is actually misrepresentation. The stats are out once again and MODERNA RULES. Pfizer is HORSE SHIT. Next time people should listen. TOLD YOU SO. HA HA (à la Nelson from Simpsons). Oh don’t you hate it when you are proven wrong over and over and over. 😆😂🤣😅

Do you have an anti-vaxxer writing this article? Shouldn’t it say “The minority that is not fully vaccinated account for the majority of deaths”? From what i saw, there were less death cases before vaccine was available. These data is easily manipulated by people in power. Shut up and get vaccinated. U say we must believed?

Interesting headline CNN...I mean CNA (difficult to tell the difference). The alternative is 70% died unvaccinated, but that wouldnt get you the clicks eh! Pointers. Did not breakdown the 70% between Unvac, 1st Dose, 2nd Dose less than 14 days. Hiding something? Please read. Pushing for Booster and still unsure if more Booster coming. Nothing on alternative measure after these 3 years. Purely relying on 'Unreliable Va$$ine'.Experts.
