Biden Mandate Sparks Price-Gouging for Fake Vax Cards

  Biden Mandate Sparks Price-Gouging for Fake Vax Cards It just got more expensive to be an anti-vaxxer. In the days before President Joe Biden announced all private sector businesses with more than 100 employees would have to require their employees be fully vaccinated, fake vaccine cards cost approximately $100. The day after his announcement last week, fake vaccine card prices doubled to $200. The number of sellers peddling bogus cards also went up, spiking from 1,000 to more than 10,000 sellers, security researchers at Israeli security firm Check Point, which was founded by veterans of an elite cyber unit of Israel’s military intelligence directorate, tell The Daily Beast.

The president also issued a strict new vaccine requirement for US federal workers, the nation's largest workforce with some two million people. The order requires employees to show proof of vaccination or be subjected to mandatory testing and masking. Mr Biden added that the monetary incentive may seem unfair to already vaccinated Americans, but "we all benefit if we can get more people vaccinated ". States would use money from the .9tn American Rescue Plan legislation to fund the incentives .

The Therapeutic Goods Administration ( TGA ) closely monitors suspected side effects (also known as adverse events) from the use of COVID-19 vaccines . The TGA uses its adverse event reporting system to closely monitor reports of death following COVID-19 vaccination . During the early stages of the vaccine rollout in Australia and many other countries, deaths were reported following vaccination in older people living in aged care as this is where the vaccine rollout started.

The list of incentives encouraging Australians to get fully vaccinated against coronavirus is growing, with free desserts now on offer alongside travel vouchers, complimentary beers, phone credits and toll-free travel on roads to name a few.

More offers are likely to be announced after the Therapeutic Goods Administration changed their stance on the NRL's decision to issue 3000 complimentary finals tickets to fully vaccinated Queenslanders.

A row erupted yesterday after the TGA said the NRL finals series tickets for this weekend's games wouldn't be honoured as the offer went against the rules on what was appropriate.

Government lawyers DEMAND Craig Kelly stop spamming people

  Government lawyers DEMAND Craig Kelly stop spamming people Lawyers for the Therapeutic Goods Administration allege Mr Kelly had breached copyright by distributing incomplete extracts of adverse vaccine event reports.Mr Kelly, who quit the Liberals over his refusal to stop spouting unfounded Covid-19 treatment claims, has engaged in a text message campaign about vaccines.

The type of vaccine being developed against the virus has never – outside of Ebola – been used before. The trials have been extremely rushed & involved testing only small numbers. Since the first positive results on vaccines have come out, a lot of people have asked me if I think everyone should take them? For some reason, a number of people out there trust my judgement on such things. I noticed that the Daily Mail recently ran a poll, which showed that three quarters of Britons would agree to have a jab – although 40 percent wanted politicians to take it first to prove it was safe.

For some age groups the vaccine is more dangerous than the virus. I have also reported to you from official reports that the largest percentage of new cases are associated with those who are fully vaccinated . The question is: are these actually new cases or are they vaccine -associated illnesses? He is so solid a member of the establishment that the Department of Defense has relied on him for years. Where Dr. Malone differs from the establishment is in his unwillingness to keep quiet when he sees that the ruling Covid narrative does not fit the facts.

a stadium full of people: The TGA backflipped on the decision to stop the NRL offering finals tickets tickets to Queenslanders. © Sportsfile via Getty Images The TGA backflipped on the decision to stop the NRL offering finals tickets tickets to Queenslanders.

The TGA — which regulates the marketing and advertising of medical products — issued advice that the promotion was against Australian guidelines.

The decision had footy fans up in arms and Queensland Health Minister Yvette D'Ath labelled the TGA advice as "bureaucracy gone mad", urging them to reconsider.

Today the TGA backflipped on the NRL announcement and confirmed "under the 2021 permission, any party can offer valuable consideration (cash or other rewards) to people who have been partly or fully vaccinated under the Government's national COVID-19 vaccination program, subject to certain conditions".

Are COVID booster shots needed? Here’s what you should know

  Are COVID booster shots needed? Here’s what you should know Some rich countries are preparing COVID vaccine boosters as lower-income countries struggle to vaccinate at-risk groups.Countries including Israel, the United Kingdom and the United States, which have already vaccinated a substantial share of their populations, have started or announced programmes to offer fully vaccinated people an extra dose of vaccine in an attempt to increase their populations’ protection against COVID-19.

The Covid-19 coronavirus vaccination campaign in Russia has been underway since last December, but so far, only four percent of the population has been vaccinated . The country’s flagship shopping mall on the Red Square was the first vaccination station in Russia to be opened outside a medical institution. Direction signs posted among the window displays state that the station is situated on the second floor, on the premises of a former bookstore. Reminders are broadcast on the public address system that anyone who wants to can be vaccinated , without appointment. But there is an absence of

  Health Minister invites Pfizer to apply for approval to vaccinate kids Overnight the pharmaceutical company said its mRNA coronavirus vaccine works for children ages five to 11, marking a key step toward beginning vaccinations for kids. Mr Hunt said he was "heartened" by the research results and asked Pfizer to submit an application to the Therapeutic Goods Administration.

Vaccine demand in the United States was well below supply. Some states refuse new shipments altogether, as the drug goes to waste. As previously reported by News Front, in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, the American authorities took the path of national selfishness. American skepticism about vaccines is attributed, in part, to dangerous side effects. Recently, the country’s authorities have suspended the use of the drug Johnson & Johnson, as it provokes blood clots. Problems were also observed after the use of the Pfizer vaccine , which had a detrimental effect on

In remarks made earlier this week, the Mexican leader said his government was still waiting for the scientific community to demonstrate the benefits of vaccinating minors. Until conclusive evidence was provided, Mexico would refuse to purchase jabs for children, Obrador announced, adding that Mexico will not be held hostage by pharmaceutical companies that only want to do business and scare children with the idea that it is necessary to vaccinate against Covid-19. He was similarly critical of plans by drugs companies to introduce third- or even fourth-dose booster shots, opining that the jabs could be

Will we hack it? What life is like with vaccine passports .
The rollout of vaccine passports across Canada's 14 provinces and territories gives an insight into what Australians can expect.Like Australia, the rollout differs among the 14 provinces (think of them as states) and territories. The difference in the vaccine passport mandates is kind of a problem, particularly considering that domestic travel in Canada, unlike Australia, is not restricted. Some provinces have QR codes, others have cards for the wallet, and some are dodging the term “vaccine passport” for political clout, even though that’s ostensibly what they have. Four have no plans to introduce a passport — yet.
