There’s no evidence that the Pfizer vaccine, or other COVID-19 vaccines, have caused deaths.

A Facebook post used a 2010 clip of "Conspiracy Theory with @GovJVentura ” to prove COVID-19 was planned. But the clip, showing Ventura and Alex Jones claim that the government stored plastic coffins to kill thousands in a pandemic, is baseless.
