Luc Montagnier expressed his concern about vaccines, but he did not say that vaccinated people would die.
Luc Montagnier recently gave an interview to a U.S.-based grassroots and investigative organization named RAIR Foundation. The full transcript of the interview is published on the RAIR website, which clarified that some were attempting to discredit Luc's valid scientific observations about the vaccine and said it's an outright misrepresentation of his words.
In the interview, the professor said that the vaccine program for the coronavirus was an “unacceptable mistake” and is creating variants leading to more deaths. He has also expressed concerns about antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE). He further said that persons who have taken the vaccine jab are creating variants resistant to the vaccine.
However, WHO and many other health authorities have claimed that the vaccines are safe against COVID-19, and changes or mutations in the virus should not make vaccines completely ineffective. Despite making some controversial statements during his interview with the RAIR Foundation, Luc Montagnier did not say that individuals vaccinated against COVID-19 will die within two years. Such quotes attributed to him on some social media posts are baseless and not true.
