“The Big Catch-Up”

In response to the marked decline in childhood vaccination rates around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic of the past three years, the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) and other organizations are partnering in an international campaign designed to boost vaccination rates among children. The effort, expected to last 18 months, is being touted as “The Big Catch-up.”1 2 3 4 5 6 7

According to the WHO:

This effort aims to reverse the declines in childhood vaccination recorded in over 100 countries since the pandemic, due to overburdened health services, closed clinics, and disrupted imports and exports of vials, syringes and other medical supplies. Meanwhile, communities and families experienced lockdowns, restricting travel and access to services, and financial and human resources were limited along with access to health commodities, due to the emergency response. Ongoing challenges like conflicts, climate crises and vaccine hesitancy also contributed to the decline in coverage rates.2 3

In July 2022, the WHO and UNICEF released global data showing the largest sustained drop in childhood vaccinations in three decades. Reportedly, more than 25 million children missed at least one dose of the routine childhood vaccines in 2021, which is an increase of six million and two million compared with 2019 and 2020, respectively.1 2 3 4 5

Twenty Countries Will Be Targeted

The focus of The Big Catch-up will be on 20 low- and middle-income countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America where 75 percent of the children who missed vaccinations lives. These countries include Afghanistan, Angola, Brazil, Cameroon, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, North Korea, Pakistan, Philippines, Somalia, Madagascar, Mexico, Mozambique, Myanmar, Tanzania and Vietnam.2 3 4

In the United States, less than 70 percent of the children under two years old were considered to be fully vaccinated during 2020-2021 for diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio and measles.5

“To ensure progress on childhood immunization, partners are working with countries to strengthen health care workforces, improve health service delivery, build trust and demand for vaccines within communities, and address gaps and obstacles to restoring immunization,” states the WHO, adding, “In addition to catching-up on childhood immunization, intensified efforts are needed to introduce the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to adolescents to prevent cervical cancer, particularly in low- and middle-income countries where the burden is highest.”3

Biggest Push to Get Kids Vaccinated Ever?

The Big Catch-up may end up being the “largest childhood immunization effort ever,” said Chelsea Clinton, vice chair of the Clinton Foundation and also vice chair of the CHAI. She encouraged the “public sector” to “stop doing things like stripping away public health emergency powers from state public health agencies”—comments which suggest Clinton is in favor of strictly enforced mandatory vaccination policies.8 9

She is co-author of a 2021 article in the Lancet that called for the U.S. government to target “anti-vaccine activist groups and state actors,” concluding that:

Interagency government task forces need to be established to examine options for countering coordinated disinformation from both national anti-vaccine activist groups and state actors. Beyond the Health and Human Services agencies, such as the CDC, all government agencies must recognise the impact of anti-vaccine activities on homeland security, commerce, and justice, and consider representation from these branches of the federal government. Efforts must also include the Department of State to address the weaponised health communication around COVID-19 vaccines.10

Clinton is also co-author of a 2022 article published in the Lancet calling for COVID vaccine mandates in the U.S. On the Clinton Foundation website established in 1997 by her parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton, who have been longtime champions of mandatory vaccination, she is quoted in People Magazine as being “on a mission to combat the small but vocal anti-vaccine movement.”2 5 7 11 12 13

    1. Indeed!
      This is ALL about money and the Medical Industrial Complex.
      What’s next? If the communities refuse the shots for their children, they starve them out?
      Praying for Peace Around the World.

  1. It’s a veritable cesspool of collaboration amongst the most privileged virtue signaling garbage that is once again telling other countries what to do with their children’s bodies and dictating health outcomes. The same cesspool that doesn’t know what a woman is and is perfectly fine with the exploitation of children at clown queen shows. They are so incredibly desperate.

  2. I cannot believe this and yet I am not surprised at all (should we invite Chelsea Clinton to the website so she can read real information… She should be able to read since she “writes” books for children nonetheless!!!). Why are they targeting those specific countries???? I hope it does not end-up in big corruptions of those governments to get to the end results they are are looking for. I have been watching some historical movies lately and really this is becoming similar to witch hunt and other persecutions of particular groups for whatever reasons.

  3. This family of Colorado deplorables is not catching up with anything these psychopaths suggest. We are not ‘obstacles to restoring immunization’ levels. We are conscious intelligent humans whom understand what a monumental fraud the entire vaccine industry has become, we routinely inform other people how the pharmasuetical industry is beyond corrupt. An astounding volume of people are now better informed that these products are not actually safe and effective. Clearly, the vaccine industry destroyed their own credibility, what illusionary credibility they had left anyways.

  4. Chelsea should read Turtles All The Way Down. Then she should read Evidence of Harm by David Kirby. Then she should read A Shot In The Dark by Barbara Lowe Fisher. Then she should read The HPV Vaccine On Trial by Mary Holland J.D. Then she should watch the movie Vaxxed. I wonder how much money the pharmaceutical industry is giving her to write and speak about this issue? She also needs to talk with Dr. Paul Thomas (retired) and see his latest report on his unvaccinated patients who have much lower rates of autism, allergies, ADD, ADHD, etc. Shame on you Chelsea!

  5. Profit driven elitists with the goals of reducing the population and making $ off the unsuspecting masses . This has nothing to do with the health of anyone.

  6. I would be interested in seeing any statistics on whether the overall health of children in these particular countries has gotten better or worse as a result of missing these jabs. I remember hearing the stat that there was a 70% reduction in pediatric emergency room visits during the time when parents were not taking their kids for their regular check ups. Now THAT is something we should be looking into as to why that would be happening!

  7. I am not surprised at anything Chelsea Clinton does. After all, look who her parents are! Bet you Fort Knox that she will NOT get all of those damn shots, nor has she ever gotten all of those damn shots. As the Clintons are asshole buddies with Gates they feed off of each other. Disgusting and very dangerous.

  8. The masses are not interested in what any of the tyrants believe or want! Tyrants have proven they are ONLY interested in themselves and their kind. They do not have the good of the world at heart! They are NOT the benevolent “do-gooders” they try to portray. Sadly, they are wolves in wolves clothing; and the masses had better wake up and realize this once and for all. Those who are paying attention don’t want the tyrants’ deadly shots or anything else they are pushing. The masses need to push back and demand that the tyrants face criminal charges and more for the tremendous harm, death and destruction that they are being allowed to intentionally unleash on the world!!!!!!

  9. Big Government was just not big enough.
    They allowed INDIVIDUALS, like Gates and Clinton (not an exclusive group) to become so ENORMOUSLY wealthy and powerful, they are behaving like sadistic countries and overtaking less-powerful countries.

    First, they take your HEALTH.
    Then, they take your MONEY.
    Then, they take your LIFE.

    God Bless all the Children of the World!

  10. Due to the extreme corruption of big pharma, all vaccines should be banned from the planet immediately. No more poisoning children for the sake of profit.

  11. All they do is to continue pushing more to vaccinate kids as well as adults. What kind of health care is that? WHO is a plain corrupt like pharmaceutical industries. I can no longer respect Hillary Clinton. Chelsea Clinton isn’t trustworthy either in my book. Screw them anyway.

  12. Who better to push death jabs than Chelsea!
    now that we know they promote sudden death, neuro impairment and other physical and mental inhjuries.
