      Well since the 3rd dose did nothing to stop COVID or it’s spread, let’s just go for a 4th death jab and kill off a bunch of elderly who are a drain on the social system. Isn’t that called crimes against humanity? Governments KNOW full well these jabs are DANGEROUS yet they continue to push them!!
