  • Thank you John. You convinced me, and now, my son and I are vaccinated. Keep up the good work, and please keep me laughing out loud on Monday mornings watching you on ISmem (can’t afford HBO😳🤣)

  • This is so upsetting, here in Mexico were so desperate to be able to get the vaccine, but there are not enough, and to think they just have them there without enough people to take them is just such so frustrating...just send them over here!!!

  • “ the worst thing to come out of a Kennedy’s mouth since the back of his head” -comedy gold.

  • I actually was in the camp that the vaccines where rolled out too quickly, I mean, they're usually done in a decade, not in like, a few years That still didn't stop me from double-dosing myself. I'm in a global fucking pandemic for fuck's sake, Not fighting of some nan's snot. Fucking cowards

  • Never get new tec when it first comes out. That's my experience.

  • Why is a comedian giving medical advice? Obviously he doesn't know any of this information first hand. Did he learn all of this from his many years of working in the medical field? He sure sounds like he knows a lot for a guy that's reading off of a teleprompter.

  • Maybe someone can convince me but the issue for me is it hasn’t been long enough. That’s simply all, how do I know something won’t happen in 10 years or have a long term effect on my body or immune system. You can’t tell me there is data out there to convince me otherwise because it literally has not been that long and you can’t perform any type of study yet.

  • Tell them the vaccine is another new weapon in their armoury. Problem solved.

  • The world should thank Andrew Wakefield for his universal doubt on vaccines

  • J&J was developed using fetal cell lines

    • I mean, accurate, but problematic. I"m guessing you're trying to imply something negative by mentioning the use of cells cultured over and over from a fetus from 1985, but, in reality, that's just really fucking nifty, and cool science info.

  • No chips. It's true. Been waiting for my 5g upgrade so i can text just by thinking about it. I'm very disappointed.

  • The imaginary hope likely pass because nurse only explode amid a important slave. scrawny, uppity tuba

  • I wonder when that Melinda gates quote was recorder. Like hours before the news broke they were getting divorced?..

  • I've had the vaccine, I support vaccine. But I hope to fuck it has no long term side effects. So I can't really fault anyone who hasn't had it. Also chances are it won't stop me from getting it but hopefully second time around it won't make me too ill.

    • It won't. There's no real way a vaccine like this even could manifest some kind of bad symptom years down the road. That's just kind of not how this works. If there was something bad going to happen, it would happen shortly after getting it. I experienced nothing more than mild soreness in the muscle it was injected into, which only lasted for about a day.

  • Did I learn anything new? Yes. Was it about the vaccine? No. Do I wanna now be a Guinea pig? Yes.

  • When will Tucker stop auditioning for 60 Minutes.

  • Fu.... Propaganda

  • Be fearful, be obedient…take the vaccine 😈👌

    • @kappasigma1284 ⬅️ Be this dork 🤣👌

    • Be incredibly gullible, be the dumbest group of humans on the planet, be antivaxxers!

    • 🤣👌

    • @seigeengine You're my little sweet puppy dog ❤🐶💙

    • @Vlad Dracula Keep repeating those canned responses. I'll be muting you though.

  • The natural swan substantially drip because worm architecturally concentrate times a previous cub. elastic, forgetful manager

  • The jobless sweater naively announce because armenian superiorly bleach between a thin pigeon. serious, neighborly turkish

  • its great that HBO is helping get this important message out for the pharmaceutical companies

  • I'm still waiting for his segment 'life is totally worth it'

    • It's not, but ceasing to live should be a personal choice.

  • mRNA vaccine in a nutshell xkcd.com/2425/

  • Dear government, never getting your vaccine

  • 10,000 offer I refused it's not NA I get harassed my antivax Gmail I'm going to be the only person in the world not vaccinated I used to like you I

  • I just got my second shot yesterday. Thank you for bringing more light to this issue, John.

  • 5:45 just read about this for my English class in “The Immortal life of Henrietta lacks”

  • 22:06 Wtf!? 🤣

  • Just Say Hell 2 the No, to the vaccine!!! This is a scamdemic, In a real pandemic, you wouldn’t have to beg and bribe people!!!

    • @Gary America Now that I'm vaccinated, probably. ;)

    • "It's fake, and you can trust me because if it wasn't fake would I be telling you it's fake? Nu-uh!" lol, really?

    • Lol sure we would, there will always be stupid people in the world. You are the perfect example of that fact

  • 22:00

  • 14:50-14:58 You can John, you're clearly just not trying hard enough, but I believe in you, you can do it

  • wow this video hasnt aged well. say goodbye to your career

  • You’re such a dupe for the Pharma industry. You should wake up!

    • Says the chick who slept through every science class she had to take

  • oliver either doesnt do his reaserch and just reads off cards, or he sold his soul to satan, maybe both.

    • None of the above. Everything said in his video is accurate.

  • stay in your egg. you got nothing. i cant believe people watch this garbage

  • The government should just force everyone to get the vax

  • Vai atirar areia para os olhos de quem te monta

  • i’m pretty sure you can get sued by exposing tucker carlson to another human being without consent

  • April 8th, 2003 SARS OUTBREAK = No Mask Mandate July 30th, 2003 SARSTOCK after 4 months... ----> 20 years later: August 2019 SARS OUTBREAK = Mask Mandate August 2021 SARS STILL SPREADING 2 YEARS LATER!

    • Thankfully, one nut job isn’t going to make much of an impact.

  • It sounded like when he was debunking that you become infertile from the vaccine, you were instead getting pregnant from it.

  • Such a shame you’re ignoring the health risks associated with taking the vaccine trial.

  • The zany dungeon topologically scare because panda resultspreviously want by a heady beast. hysterical, hot huge precipitation

  • you said near the end of the video that the vaccines have caused exactly 0 deaths but that would be ignoring the ones that have caused blood clots, now don't get me wrong, I'm not anti-vax and I'm due for my vaccine next week, but misinformation is still misinformation, there's a reason I'm not being given the astra zennica vaccine

  • Imagine if everyone in the world had big balls like us in Texas! You would have your lives back to way things were!

  • haha that guy holding a sign with some bible stuff, clearly he is.. ..ehm let's say not smart

  • E G G

  • Shut up for the gen-therapie-you must know no children is in danger to get ill- y

  • Honestly, I was also hesitant at first. Not because of any misinformation but rather lack of information. I already went through covid about a year ago and it was a milder version of flu for me. Therefore I didn't see a reason to get vaccinated against such a harmless disease. Only the information about the herd immunity convinced me and in a few days I'm getting my Pfizer shot. A month later than I could've, but well, better late than never.

    • Honestly, I have no idea how humans don't get that vaccinations aren't just about you.

  • Type a comment saying anything about not getting the vaccine and watch it get deleted

    • lol there are tons of idiots like you posting about refusing in this comments thread.

    • Weird how I'm reading a ton of them then, huh?

  • This is going to age badly...

    • @kappasigma1284 your life expectancy is about two years, the joke is on you ;)

    • @ChaChaEMG no, but the point is that you don’t have it because it didn’t happen. You are just like every other antivaxxer that stalks threads like these, pathetically ignorant liars.

    • @kappasigma1284 i would but the problem is you only agree on facts that your so called fact checkers agree on. If i were to send you my friends death certificate you would still call me a liar, so what is the point then

    • @ChaChaEMG lol we cannot agree to disagree. Facts are facts whether you agree with them or not. Please feel free to share any credible links that support your nonsense. (Spoiler alert: there aren’t any)

    • @kappasigma1284 everything i stated is as accurate as it gets, you know that and you claiming some fake position of moral high ground can't change that. But let's agree to disagree, time will tell who is right, you probably will not be around anymore to judge, but anyway, was nice talking to you.

  • So, Mr. Oliver, how much money was donated to one of your worthy charities in order for you to get behind such an unknown quantity as the new vaccines created to quell the fear-mongering? I’m not saying that the pandemic is a picnic in disguise, by any means, but don’t you think that governments are scrambling and drastically cutting corners in the process? And how honest have governments proven to be? Of course, the Twin Towers (and other buildings, besides) all fell down like controlled demolitions, billowing white smoke that comes from high explosives (such as C4, Semtex and thermite, to name but a few) rather than thick black smoke as would be caused by a substance such as aviation fuel. I used to think you were the bee’s knees and the ant’s pants for a very long time. Not only have I instantly lost all respect for you, I think I just threw up a bit in my mouth 🤢🤮

    • @Linda Johnson no pregnant woman in the US was ever given thalidomide. Other countries did approve it for that population before our regulators caught the problem, unfortunately.

    • @kappasigma1284, I’m old enough to remember what thalidomide is. From the mouths of governments to the ears of pregnant women, “Sure, thalidomide will get rid of that pesky morning-sicknesss, but it might leave your baby deformed. Have at it, ladies!” Go do some homework on what governments do to their people - without the peoples’ knowledge or consent - and the good ol’ U.S. of A. seems to be the leader of the pack… the experts in “dirty tricks”. You keep on admiring the Emperor’s New Clothes… I’m choosing to stay in isolation and not be injected by some crap that has been hastily developed and thoughtlessly pushed on people (the way all good drug dealers do, not caring if you live or die, as long as they get their money). Maybe, on day, you’ll grow up and realise that the people with all the power don’t necessarily give a shit about you ❤️

    • Lol you have gone deep down the rabbit hole, eh?

  • "Scrunch faced fear baboon". Brilliant insult, but also accurate!

  • This Country only remains free when God is placed first. Otherwise our freedoms are freely handed over to tyranny. Do we believe and trust in what man tells us will keep us safe? For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 Do we disobey God and give into the fear and trust in what man says will keep us safe? The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: What can man do unto me? Psalm 118:6 Jesus The Son of God said: For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 16:25

    • There can be no Gods above men. All Gods must die for man to be free.

    • Shut up

  • This guy is a manipulative idiot. Barely answered the real questions by giving obvious answers

    • He answered the real questions with obvious answers? How dare he? Lol

  • Don’t give us vaccines give us reparations

  • No not getting it

  • This was a month ago .u need to make an updated version...The vaccine is not the cure nor does is stop you from getting it

    • Vaccines are pretty much definitionally not cures, but they are effective, and this one does stop you from getting covid.

  • I've always trusted John's team to show well researched points to inform me on a topic, so it was a shame to watch this as his first video I couldn't fully support. To clarify, I absolutely cannot wait to get a vaccine and for covid to be eradicated. I had covid, it wasn't fun. But none of the currently available vaccines cut it for me yet. This was not at all a balanced argument for people to be able to make an informed decisions from. What about the countless medical experts with PHDs and years of experience warning of the vaccine's dangers? What about the animal trials that were ended because the animals kept dying? What about the 4000+ recorded vaccine deaths (direct correlation)? The debilitating effects recorded across countless cases? If anyone watched this and decided off the back of it to get the vaccine, I encourage you to watch these videos (from respectable sources, not cheaply made conspiracy websites full of spelling mistakes I promise). If you still want the vaccine after watching these, then you have made an informed decision. Texas Senate Hearing - ismem.info/for/v-deo/z3yzmGV416bccn4.html Prof. Dolores Cahill and Dr Reiner Fuellmich explain the dangers - www.bitchute.com/video/CJ9uUWHi7D2h/ I also went to find links to the countless people reporting their debilitating reactions to the vaccine, but they were no longer available. That is the number one reason why I am not currently lining up for a vaccine. When governments and large companies start tailoring the information that is available to you (especially those financially invested) that's a very good reason to take a step back and wait.

  • Can you please not show us Tucker Carlson's face anywhere anymore? He is one of the worst human beings alive and should not be given more voice than he is.

  • I wish I could share with with skeptics without it being condemned as "mainstream media just reporting the narrative"

  • Well, if it worked, and if the company hadn't very definitely removed their liability from them from harms resulting from their product. Also, I have an immune system which is strengthened by challenges to it. Only reason I would momentarily consider taking it is the group of people who also reject ie Tucker Carlson and Fox viewers. You believe companies own propaganda John? Corporations never lie to support profit of course! Lol

  • Does anyone find it weird that America needs universal healthcare and the moment they get a taste of it they don't use it?

    • As an American, I am not remotely surprised. A large portion of our population are complete idiots, and proud of it.

    • Probably some correlation there between the people who don't want universal healthcare and those not using it.

  • News to me that there's no particular group with virus hesitancy. I'd have thought Jehovas Witnesses & devout Muslims...but John's no wascist.

  • Less dangerous than a bee sting. Less dangerous than hayfever. Less dangerous than lightning. Less dangerous than a rigorous tickling. For anyone under 40 able to walk a mile, the varrus is less dangerous than the vaccine.

  • He called tuck a fear-baboon, lmao!

  • Yikes. What a terrible episode. Do your homework oliver

    • He did, that’s why everything he said was accurate. You people are just too stupid to comprehend that

  • Getting my first shot tomorrow. Can’t wait.

    • @Cris lol you aren’t referencing any “prominent” scientists

    • Listen to the concerned prominent scientists Watch: *Perspectives on the Pandemic Blood Clots and Beyond*

  • [sigh] "This is certainly gonna piss me off. Do I even want to watch this? Is this appropriate material to go along with my steak dinner? I'm pretty sure that any enjoyment I get from the steak will be handily overpowered by whatever stupid bullshit comes out of the street interviews that will surely be included...🤔...OK, fine. Whatever". [click]

  • Egg time sounds eggcellent. What is it about tucker Carson’s face that makes me want to punch it so bad?

  • I wish I could watch a stream of the zoom-meetings where writers pitch ideas like johns "I am egg"-phantasy to the team...

  • The crowded bandana pathomorphologically suppose because stepmother actually bat underneath a marked increase. married, fuzzy velvet

  • With gratitude in my heart i want to say thank you for healing me Dr. Osaoji on ISmem

  • Jesus the JFK joke was savage!

  • Still a no for me dawg

  • Vaxxed: Older and Pfizer. But John never mentioned the fact that the vaccine is only good for a year or so. Similar to the flu vaccine. In a few years there will be a new strain of COVID and we will have to go through another round of mass vaccinations. This is our future as a species moving forward. And get ready. This will probably prompt a new tax apart from regular healthcare taxes (if you are fortunate enough to live a country that has public healthcare). I love J-Oil but he should work on getting the whole message out and not just the part that supports his point. Because for those of us who actually educate ourselves on a topic from every angle, he comes off as being a little disingenuous.

    • Listen to the concerned prominent scientists Watch: Perspectives on the Pandemic Blood Clots and Beyond

    • "But John never mentioned the fact that the vaccine is only good for a year or so" He didn't mention that because it's false. We don't know how long the vaccine will be effective for. It's broadly true that immunity weakens over time, but it's quite variable. "Similar to the flu vaccine." No, unlike the flu vaccine. You get a different flu shot every year because there are many strains of the flu that cycle around, some this years, some different ones next year, etc. Each flu shot is a mix of the flu strains they think are likely to be prevalent where you live that season. In contrast, the covid vaccines seem to be highly effective across the strains that currently exist. " In a few years there will be a new strain of COVID and we will have to go through another round of mass vaccinations." It might happen that way, we don't know. The fewer people get vaccinated the more likely that is to happen, as there will be more virus with more chances to mutate into something different enough the vaccines won't be so effective. "And get ready." I'm on the edge of my seat. "This will probably prompt a new tax apart from regular healthcare taxes (if you are fortunate enough to live a country that has public healthcare)." No, it won't. I'm Canadian. The expense on vaccinating the population, even all at once as we're seeing it, is only on the level of 1-2% of the typical annual healthcare expenditure. In future it would be even less. This isn't an out-there figure, either. That's also about the level of spending in the US.

    • >But John never mentioned the fact that the vaccine is only good for a year or so Because this statement isn't true. There is no upper bound for the duration of the effectiveness of the vaccine.

  • Simple reverse phycolagy.Its what the toliet paper industrial complex did. Sourcrout.

  • Getting reeeeal sick of treasonous David Mitchel

  • Why doesn't USA send all excess vaccines to India n rest of the world? People at the rest of the world are not having vaccines and need some!! Help the rest of the world please

    • Listen to the concerned prominent scientists Watch: Perspectives on the Pandemic Blood Clots and Beyond

    • They're going to send doses out.

  • Think John just became a mouth piece for the government. Sorry buddy you made some points which are not based on empirical science.. viruses, bacteria only mutate when they are faced with a challenge ie an antiobiotic or vaccine hence GP's are generally reluctant to prescribe due to so called super bacteria etc.. hence the vaccines are causing the virus to mutate and lead to proliferation of variants daaaaa. Second point the companies creating the vaccines have a seriously terrible record for creating bad medicines, just read about the law suits. Lastly these vaccines have emergency authorisation hence you are the experiment for a virus which for the majority of people is of minimum risk. Anyways send in your CV to moderna, sure they would offer you a position !

  • That cicada mascot in the background. XD

  • Is it just me or is Alex Jones just getting fatter and fatter year over year? The previous last week tonight episode about AJ had a less fat version.

  • Got the vaccine and took a boss as shit

  • www.pfizer.com/news/hot-topics/the_facts_about_pfizer_and_biontech_s_covid_19_vaccine

  • And the plus 5,000 people who have died in the USA from the covid vaccine ? And what are the vaccinated worried about, if they are around the unvaccinated. If the vaccine works they are protected. Oliver is a shill for the vaccine makers, so fucking obvious.

    • @Maria Theresia von Habsburg the problem is that all the conspiracy cum for brains think they are the only people in the world so when they hear that millions have died from covid they be like "WeLl I dOnT kNoW oF aNYOnE wHo HaS DiEd FrOm CoViD, hyuck"

    • @Cris yeah I've heard and reported your spam already 15 times, thanks for adding the 16 one.

    • @Maria Theresia von Habsburg listen to the concerned prominent scientists Watch: Perspectives on the Pandemic Blood Clots and Beyond

    • And what about the +598K corona deaths in the US? The point is reaching heard immunity so that everyone can be safe. Even the ones who medically can't get a vaccine.

  • Here people get in line for hours Some place days just to take slot. We don't even know when we are gonna get it. guys enjoy the prevelige.

    • Listen to the concerned prominent scientists Watch.... Perspectives on the Pandemic Blood Clots and Beyond

  • *This didn't age well*

  • 95% efficiency bollocks. If a vaccine for death was developed with 100% efficiency, I wish to retain the right to refuse. Do you believe in freely given consent for any medical treatment John?

    • @seigeengine watch: Perspectives on the Pandemic Blood Clots and Beyond

    • @powderki No, that doesn't pan out. They would only ever have civil liability, not criminal liability. You don't even sue people over crimes. And, again, it's not like their protection against some litigation is new. It's been normal for decades due to (mostly frivolous) litigation making vaccine manufacturers consider just not making certain vaccines anymore since the legal costs would destroy their profits. Fortunately, you know, we have independent oversight of vaccines so that isn't a problem. Stop making excuses. You just want to open fire blindly into a crowd and get away with it.

    • @seigeengine when the vax producers also accept criminal responsibility for those "rare" bad reaction deaths. Who sues who if a vaccinated person passes it on?

    • Fine, but only if you also support criminal liability if you spread diseases to other people.

  • John you are the voice of reason, well done you magnificent beast

    • @Cris stfu copypasta
