If Your Time is short

  • Microsoft Corp. co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates didn’t post a tweet in support of adding vaccines to the food supply to solve vaccine hesitancy. 
  • This fake tweet appears to come from a website called NewsPunch, which featured the image in a false story about Gates supposedly trying to force mRNA vaccines on people by pumping them into the food supply. 
  • The story centers around comments Gates made in 2018 — years before the COVID-19 pandemic and mRNA vaccines — about vaccinating livestock. But he didn’t say anything about using the food supply to force vaccinations on people, as this suggests.

The screenshot appears to come from a Jan. 10 story by NewsPunch, a website known for spreading misinformation, about Gates supposedly trying to force mRNA vaccines on people by pumping them into the food supply. The story featured a photo illustration that included an image of the fabricated tweet. 

But the story revolves around comments Gates made in 2018 — before the COVID-19 pandemic — about vaccinating livestock.

In the video, Gates spoke about a partnership between his foundation and a United Kingdom agency then known as the Department for International Development, which is now part of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. 

“The Gates Foundation has partnered with DFID on a great number of things and, among those, are work we do together on livestock,” Gates said in the clip. “Helping animals survive either by having vaccines or better genetics, helping them be more productive. It’s making a big difference.” 

Gates didn’t say anything about forcing vaccines on people by using the food supply.
