Bill Gates says your life will not return to normal until you are inoculated against Covid-19 with his vaccine.
In a new blog post last week, Gates explained everything you need to know about his Covid-19 vaccine.
In March, Gates stepped down from the boards of Microsoft and Berkshire Hathaway to personally oversee his vaccination program.
In cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO) world governments, and pharmaceutical companies, the 64-year-old Microsoft founder plans to roll out 7 billion doses of his vaccine -- enough to vaccinate nearly every man, woman and child on the planet.
New factories will be built to develop and distribute the vaccines to the world. The vaccination effort is funded in part by a $250 million donation from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Gates is determined to vaccinate the world. He said health care workers would be inoculated first, followed by poor people in low income countries, because they have less access to healthcare.
"Realistically, if we're going to return to normal, we need to develop a safe, effective vaccine. We need to make billions of doses, we need to get them out to every part of the world, and we need all of this to happen as quickly as possible."
And to make sure future generations are vaccinated, the billionaire philanthropist said his vaccines will become a routine part of newborn immunizations.
To confirm that everyone in the world is immunized, Gates proposes invisible ink tattoos or even an implantable chip that will track people who received the vaccines.
The chip would submit someone's updated health and vaccination data into a centralized COV-ID database that will also contain their voter ID information and criminal history.
You could lose your job if you decided not to take the shot or be chipped. As one Redditor explained: "They're going to pressure corporations to require their employees have it."
The vaccine only needs to be 60% effective or usable, Gates says. The vaccine is being fast-tracked and Gates is optimistic that a safe and effective vaccine will be available within 9 months to two years.
Since Gates published his post on Thursday, hundreds of comments from skeptics have been deleted. But a few sarcastic comments remain:
"I am sure Bill has the best interests of everyone at heart and can understand the importance of building confidence through a very public injection of his whole family in a ceremony which will be independently verified, followed by injecting all of the billionaires, leaders of industry and politicians because it is very important that they be protected from infection first."
