    This vaccine business itself is murky, to make more billions in artificial milk, lab made meat, including force these through artificially created food shortages with so called these shots or vaccines. Not only that, gene editing for transgenderism for productionless, milklessness and other purposes so elite can rake billions, same time, they are making sure population under control and food also controlled to the masses. Basically greed for control and rule and with less population for better control.

    Better first complete all the necessary formalities of getting green signal from Hindu activists and BD, in case of unforeseen eventualities. Precaution is better than cure! I have expressed my foresight/concern !🙏
