Covid Vaccines: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

John Oliver explains why some people don’t want to get the Covid-19 vaccine and how they might be reassured. (Even you, Mike in Baltimore.) Connect with …


  1. 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.

  2. 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 🤢🤮

  3. 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

  4. 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 –
    Prof. Dolores Cahill and Dr Reiner Fuellmich explain the dangers –
    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
