Right now, the biggest thing I’m seeing is people scared to death they’re going to be forced to take this coronavirus vaccine. I’m not aware of anyone who is afraid of the virus.
I am seeing a lot, lot of fear, but it is all fear of the government using its new powers, which it gave itself as a response to the manufactured coronavirus crisis, to hurt people.
The media is claiming the opposite – they are claiming that the rich are swarming to get access to the vaccine.
They’re offering tens of thousands of dollars in cash, making their personal assistants pester doctors every day, and asking whether a five-figure donation to a hospital would help them jump the line.
The COVID-19 vaccine is here – and so are the wealthy people who want it first.
“We get hundreds of calls every single day,” said Dr Ehsan Ali, who runs Beverly Hills Concierge Doctor. His clients, who include Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, pay between $US2000 ($2654) and $US10,000 a year for personalised care. “This is the first time where I have not been able to get something for my patients.”
With the first doses in short supply, California has laid out a strict order of vaccinations based on need and risk: Healthcare workers and nursing home residents, then essential workers and those with chronic health conditions, then, finally, everyone else.
But to those with power, money and influence, rules can always be bent. California’s stern messaging about serving the neediest first hasn’t stopped the rich from trying to leap ahead of teachers, farmworkers and firefighters.
Dr Jeff Toll, who has admitting privileges at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, one of the first hospitals to stock the vaccine, recalled a patient asking: “If I donate $25,000 to Cedars, would that help me get in line?'” Toll said no.
Watchdogs have been warning that the COVID-19 vaccine’s initial scarcity could create a thriving black market, particularly if well-connected people in the healthcare industry skim off a few doses here and there for friends, family or the highest bidder.
But getting earlier access to the shot may not even require much backroom deal-making. Some wealthy patients may get the shots sooner than the average person because they’re members of exclusive healthcare groups that offer the kind of high-quality, primary care most Americans can’t afford.
Those patients are already on waiting lists with concierge doctors who charge as much as $US25000 a year for 24-hour access to top-notch care, which includes working to get their clients vaccinated as soon as it’s available.
Concierge practices are fielding frantic, repeated phone calls from well-heeled clients and their assistants. They’re busy assembling lengthy patient files with medical histories and potential COVID-19 risks.
And they’re snapping up expensive, ultra-low temperature freezers, which are in short supply, to store the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine, which must be kept at minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit (minus-70 celsius).
Doctors in boutique practices say they will adhere to public health guidelines in determining who gets priority. But being on a waiting list at a practice that has special freezers and other high-quality resources means you’re already near the front of the line once the supply opens up.
Some boutique practices have already applied to California health officials for approval to store and administer the vaccine at a time when the typical primary care doctor has little idea when and how their patients will get access to the shots.
“As soon as we heard about the vaccine coming to market, we started looking for freezers,” said Andrew Olanow, co-founder of Sollis Health, a concierge practice with clinics in New York, the Hamptons and Beverly Hills.
I don’t know for sure, but I would suspect that this is completely fake. Rich people might not all be smart, but they have access to smart people. We know that the ruling elite mock the mask rules and other aspects of the coronavirus lockdown, which is clearly seen as being something designed for the goyim.
I can’t imagine that the rich are not overwhelmingly aware that this vaccine is a sham, and that the only people who are rushing to take it are the most uninformed of peasants.
Presently, every single government has ordered more doses of the vaccine than they have people willing to take it, so the clear implication is that they are going to begin a program to somehow coerce the population into taking it. This is the exact opposite of “there are not enough doses to go around and the rich are trying to buy access.”
Currently, the United States has 200 million doses ordered.
The total number of adults willing to take it right now is under 150 million. They are claiming that these numbers have gone up over the last few months, but they’ve gone up from 26% to 46%. I don’t even know that I believe these polls, but whatever the case, this is far from “high demand” given the massive supply.
However, if we look at this news article in context, we find: it costs nothing for the media to print articles falsely claiming that this vaccine is in high demand, and that celebrities are scrambling for access.
This article literally names Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. It doesn’t outright say that they’re looking to get the vaccine; many peasants will read this and walk away from it with: “I read that Justin and Ariana are trying to get the vaccine and they can’t.” Then, if they are offered the vaccine, they will think: “I’m being offered something that top celebrities want and can’t get! What an opportunity!”
It costs the establishment nothing to run hype campaigns. It is frankly bizarre to see the exactly opposite of the truth printed so brazenly in the media, but it’s something that we’re going to have to get used to.
