From having friends and family across the world in multiple countries I am seeing one particular fear preventing many from getting vaccines. In the Philippines for example my fiancée has family and they are afraid of vaccines there because they read online , and I see articles as well, stating that the vaccines there like sinovac was approved by WHO for developing countries. So a fear has arose that these poor countries are getting worse vaccines then America and they refuse to get them wanting American vaccines. I guess there are even supposed black market American vaccines brought there. The fear is so great that it seems even the President in the last day or so in the Philippines have stated they will be begin arresting anyone not getting vaccinated.
They have the same fears that we saw in USA about vaccine safety except they have added this layer of being test dummies for lesser known vaccines that first world countries won’t use themselves.
I sent my fiancée links to various sites that specifically mention sinovac to send to her family or translate it since they don’t speak English or know how to read it. I don’t know if it’s a urban legend that has developed or not but her family stated it even goes as bad that people are leaving their jobs snd homes and fleeing to more remote islands to live off the land and in the process several have died because of being out there when the recent storms hit and so on.
Was wondering if anyone knew of any good info that can perhaps dismantle this secondary fear of their vaccines versus ours?
