    This is just Duterte's way of communicating and getting free press for the narrative that he wants to push. He simply wants people to consider the importance of getting vaccinated.

    Obviously, considering the re-posts here on DI, Duterte's way of communicating works very well.

    In a couple of months, when this shock has worn out, he will say that he will "kill" anyone who refuses the vaccine.

    I wonder if he will start shooting from that jet ski he promised to ride while saving the South China Sea, I mean the West Philippine Sea.

    I'm aware. Let's see if my priority level (likely the lowest priority level) comes around before all of those doses are used up and, of it does, if I'm lucky enough to get one of the vaccines I'm willing to accept.

    It has been too short of time to even know if a vaccine is effective or dangerous. There are numerous variants also and one or 2 pokes of WTF... ain't gonna do sh#t. I have offered all my inlaws financial assistance to get the jab, but I will not be nor ever will be taking it.

    Over 2 billion vaccines have been administered world wide, 3 million and counting deaths due to Covid, and nary any attributable deaths due to the vaccines. You are a real skeptic.

    I have had the A/Z jab not a skeptic, but we don't know if any long term issues and this bothers people.

    Well, so far there are 5,479 reported vaccine related deaths in the US according to VAERS, and it is pretty much accepted that is a significant under reporting. Now, that is out of 300 million doses, so it is a small percentage, but it is a bit more than "nary any". It is more than for all other vaccines combined over the past 10 years. Under any other circumstance even a much smaller number than that would be enough to justify ordering an immediate halt.

    What you say is not an accurate truth. You could have done a simple Internet search that would have shown that this has been debunked.

    These deaths are simply the circumstance of timing. Remember that old people are offered the vaccines first. Every day old people die from other causes. If you vaccinate millions of old people then some are going to die of other causes shortly after receiving the vaccine. If they had not received the vaccine, they still would have died of these other causes.

    VERDICT
    Missing context. There is no evidence that the deaths reported to VAERS after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine are caused by the vaccine.


    These reports do not necessarily imply that the vaccine caused the death and often include entries not yet confirmed or verified by the government agencies.
