The state of North Carolina announced that on Wednesday, June 23 at 10 a.m., the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) will hold the first drawing of random numbers for the state’s “Summer Cash Drawing and Summer Cash 4 College Lottery.”
Earlier Tuesday, the state announced a large expansion of a different program that pays people $25 to get vaccinated for COVID-19 – or to drive someone to a site to get vaccinated.
In other words, the state really, really wants people to get vaccinated and it will pay them to do so.
On Wednesday morning, after the numbers are drawn – with a little help from friends at the NC Education Lottery – NCDHHS staff will determine the identity of the winner who holds those lucky numbers. NCDHHS workers will also check to see that the winner doesn’t fall under any exclusions from participation in the program. So the process of naming a winner may take several days. Before that process is complete, state officials won’t give out any identifying details.
The Summer Cash and Summer Cash 4 College Drawings – which will give out a total of $4 million in prizes – will run until early August.
Random number generator drawings will take place every other week on Wednesdays. New entries will close at midnight on the Sunday prior to that week’s Wednesday drawing.
Any North Carolina residents 18 years of age and older who have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will be automatically entered into four drawings for a chance to win $1 million. Those between the ages of 12 and 17 who’ve received at least one dose of a vaccine will be automatically entered into four drawings to win $125,000 towards their post-secondary education.
Free donuts, free beer, cash incentives, and now lottery tickets to participate in their human trials for their genetic experiment. Wow.
These are not vaccines, people! These are experimental mRNA concoctions that have never been approved, until now. All the viable and safe treatments (HCQ, Ivermectin, etc.) for Covid were poo-pooed in the press and by Democrat governors, all so that these bogus “vaccines” could be approved for emergency use.
Instead of injecting a weakened form of the virus, like all traditional vaccines, these mRNA vaccines program your body’s cells to produce spike proteins, like the ones that cover the covid-19 virus. No one knows how long this will happen. No one knows how many spike proteins your body will produce. These spike proteins floating around in the human body has been causing blood clots, and in more extreme cases, enlarged hearts. No one knows what the long term effects are going to be.
No one knows any of these thing because these vaccines were all rushed to the human participation phase. Vaccines take at least 10 years to develop and properly test.
We’re living through one of the biggest psy-ops ever. The propaganda surrounding the covid virus and now these vaccines should make everyone of us suspicious.
I’ve never been an anti-vaxxer, but I am definitely anti-this-vax. There is no bribe that can be thought of to make me want to inject this crap into my body. Good luck to the rest of you.
Bingo. This is one of the largest organized (well, kind of) human experiments in history. I think Mengele would have loved to be here to see it.
Dead right, Tom. These “vaccines” have not been approved through the normal rigorous testing process. They’re only available on an emergency authorization basis. And… the Big Pharma manufacturers have been granted blanket immunity from any and all liability.
Draw your own conclusions.
What are the “normal rigorous testing processes”? How did this process differ from that? Please provide details and sources.
Do you dispute that these mRNA vaccines failed to undergo the normal approval process?
Do you dispute that they were authorised on an emergency basis only?
Please provide details and sources… if you can.
I dispute that the process they went through makes them unsafe just because it was a different and streamlined process. They were and continue to be heavily tested. mRNA technology has been used in research setting for decades and because of that research is was possible to develop a highly effective vaccine in a much shorter period of time.
And to be clear, I’m questioning your knowledge of the vaccine approval process before and during COVID. I am not questioning that this process was different, but I still believe it to be a highly effective vaccine.
TO ‘GOOD LUCK”.
Let’s try again, and see if you can actually answer a question.
Do you dispute that these mRNA vaccines failed to undergo the normal approval process?
YES or NO? It’s a simple question.
Do you dispute that these vaccines were authorised on an emergency basis only?
YES or NO ? It’s a simple question.
You avoid answering and try to deflect because you know you are wrong.
No. Since your reading comprehension is poor. That was very clear. I also don’t think it matters.
Now that I’ve answered your silly and repeated question repeatedly while you deflected and punted on having an actual conversation… your turn.
Glad to see that you have finally agreed that these vaccines have not gone through the normal approval process, and have been authorized on an emergency basis only.
It’s a shame it took you so long, and it’s a shame you feel the need to insult my intelligence.
But then, Leftists always devolve into puerile insults.
And good luck to you.
Good one, Joh!
Why? Will you get it when they have full FDA approval?
To counter the scary post from TOM.
mRNA vaccines have been around since the early 21st century so not a New as Tom might think. mRNA is used in vaccines for other pathogens such as Ebola, Zika, Rabies, influenza and cytomegalovirus so there is a good history for regulators to understand potential for long-term risks.
mRNA has a half life of only a few days so not itself a long-term risk. As to the proteins it triggers to trick your body into generating the antibodies to fight off the virus, there is far less risk from it than actually having the virus itself. The risk is not zero but certainly very very close to zero.
Another fear source is the ideas this vaccine is not approved by CDC. It is approved by CDC but still requires more testing before it receives more than the temporary emergency approval. My limited understanding here is that we don’t yet fully understanding it’s duration of protection which would normally be studied but could not be given the urgency in moving forward with distribution. This is not to say the Coivd vaccine was not tested prior to distribution. It was tested in a large controlled study but not to the duration of drugs that can afford more time to market.
Consult your doctor before determining if you receive the vaccine (yes you are free to not receive the vaccine if you choose). Just don’t rely on Facebook memes or a random post from someone like Tom or myself. Your doctor knows what is best for you and can help you better understand what is really involved.
These vaccines are not approved by the CDC, they are authorized – on an emergency basis only.
AND… the manufacturers have been given blanket immunity from all liability, including negligence.
These facts ought to give any sentient person cause to think twice.
What a joke.
Is it tax free, or will a lot of the money stay in Raleigh?
Read this! The COVID 19 vaccines are unsafe in humans. My children are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Pop quiz: what is the difference between correlation and causation?
The article you shared observes an increase in ADRs (adverse drug reactions) during the time frame following vaccine rollout in the UK and reports 1253 deaths related to the vaccine (that is 0.00321% of those at least 1-dose vaccinated).
What is not clear, if you aren’t familiar with medical research and reporting, is that this is just recording symptoms and in no way reflects the causes of those symptoms. One of the symptoms reported is pain – yes, getting a shot can be painful and even involve lingering musical and joint pain. There is no evidence reported here that Covid-19 caused these adverse drug reactions only that people reported these symptoms more during this time frame. Now, why could this be?
1. People are expecting side effects and therefore more likely to report issues they wouldn’t normally report.
2. People have spent a year+ being hyper aware of their own Heath and might in general report more minor symptoms because they are used to daily or weekly checks of temperature, cough, etc.
3. Human nature looks to place blame somewhere for personal, local, and globa challenges. Someone gets sick for any reason, it’s easy to blame the vaccine instead of considering that other causes like unmasking more regularly, going to restaurants more frequently, or simply stress makes you more susceptible to diseases and symptoms (or ADRs).
The important thing here is that the data used in your source (thank you for providing, btw) is not sufficient to determine causality. At best, it is evidence that researchers should test causality (which is exceptionally difficult to do especially considering your participant pool at this point are vaccine hesitant individuals) and at worst it is simply wrong, misleading, and fueling fear and poor decision making by the general public.
Finally, I’d be curious if the data from the US mirrors this study’s AND if there are cultural differences between the two datasets (what are norms for other generally safe vaccines in the UK and US).
VARES reports nearly 6,000 dead and nearly 300,000 adverse effects – a Harvard study proved that less than 1% of adverse effects are actually reported.
European Database Of Adverse Drug Reactions For COVID-19 Shots: 13,867 DEAD And 1,354,336 Injuries
We sure do need science. Where is the science that says these COVID vaccines are safe? They are all untested experimental vaccines and if take one of them you are in a clinical trial. Authorized for emergency use only. Do you know the difference between authorized and approved? It takes typically 10 years for a vaccine to come to market.
There is science that has proven that past attempts to produce a coronavirus vaccine has been deadly due to antibody dependent enhancement (ADE). The lab animals had very poor outcomes when challenged with the coronavirus after vaccinated due to ADE.
There is also science behind the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin in the treatment of coronaviruses. Fauci stated, in the past, that HCQ was effective against coronaviruses as well. Why would anyone take an untested experimental vaccine when there are studied inexpensive medications that have been around for decades that are effective? There is a Dr. Kory that talks about the science of ivermectin and how effective it is for treating coronaviruses.
There is also science behind the fraudulent PCR tests used to diagnose coronavirus. The FDA recommended the PCR cycle threshold should be at 40 cycles. Any PCR test running above 35 cycles will give a 97% false positives and anything above 25 cycles is not clinically significant.
There is science on the survival rates of COVID-19 from the CDC:
0-19 yo – 99.997%
20 – 49 yo – 99.98%
50-69 yo – 99.5%
70 yo and older – 94.6%
There is of science behind the ineffectiveness of masks for viruses.
You seem to be an intelligent person. You will need to do your research to debunk the above information. I guess you will debunk these facts using factcheck.org or Snopes.com.
May the Lord bless you and show you truth.
6000 dead in 178 million+ vaccines.
Check your numbers on vaccinated deaths vs unvaccinated death.
Cherry-pick your numbers and you can tell any story you want. I offer a different lens through which to think about getting a vaccine.
Last year it was “all these Covid deaths are just other causes” and now it is “look how the vaccine is killing people” (quotes for effect not implying a direct quotation).
May your church friends not drop dead because you don’t find it sensible to get a vaccine.
GO GET A VACCINE OR SET ALEXA TO AUTOORDER MORE MASKS EVERY MONTH. That’s the world you are deciding to live in – in my opinion.
The number of COVID deaths were ridiculously fraudulent. I work in health care and we had ZERO influenza cases. I have not seen that happen during my 18 year career in medicine. Was it because we were all wearing masks and social distancing? No! The cases kept going up because we were not wearing masks! Masks don’t work anyway. They labeled influenza as COVID to inflate the numbers. They did the same thing during H1N1. I saw that first hand. I’m not saying COVID 19 isn’t real, it’s just not as bad as they wanted it to be.
Cmon man! We already have a cure – HCQ and Ivermectin.
The best way to beat this is with Vitamin D/K2, Vitamin C, and zinc.
Additionally, the 6,000 deaths reported in VAERS is ridiculously low, due to only less than 1% of adverse effects are actually documented. Harvard came up with that number.
Okay, so you didn’t debunk any of the science I stated above. I didn’t think you would. We’ll, maybe using Snopes. I see no reason to continue this dialogue due to you have NO science to back up your statements and debunk my science backed evidence. Yes, we sure do need science. NOT the science that says we came from monkeys though!
No disrespect for your thoughts on this matter. I hope you stay well God bless!
Your opinion is all it is. Waffle, deflection and BS.
LPD nailed you. With facts.
Your anecdote somehow supersedes actual data?
Take your snake oil and invest in a mass grave for you and yours.
Ah…. “Science”. Which, you know, everyone needs.
Funny innit how “Science” was once adamant that the Sun revolved around the Earth?
Or that every food we eat has been proven to be both very bad for you, and very good for you – within my lifetime.
The notion that we must genuflect before “experts” in “science” (like Anthony Fauci) is ridiculous and authoritarian. Stuff the “experts”. They are educated idiots, as Lenin might put it.
Oh, hi Austin. It’s terrible to see you again. A little while back you commented on a story about the budget saying:
“ THE ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF HIGH POINT…?
I asked the simple question: Why?
Still awaiting your enlightening response.
I’d also add, what exactly do you mean by “Stuff them”? Perhaps it was a nice thought.
Gosh, I had no idea that I had managed to get under your skin so much!
You should get a life.
And I have no idea what you’re referencing.
Not surprising. You’re just a thorn.
There you go deselecting when someone asks you a straight as day question again. You seem to vilify your own character all the time on here. Okay, I’ll do the work for you. Here’s your refresher
Scroll down and refresh yourself about you own comments.
My question, which you are free to avoid answering because you’re a bigot: Why and what do you mean by “stuff them”?
It’s clear enough to most people. Try replacing “stuff” with a four letter expletive that can’t be printed.
Is this difficult for you?
….and enmity is not the same as bigotry.
You ought to learn the difference – if you can.
Rod Serling released this episode of “The Twilighy Zone” in 1959. It was entitled “Escape Claus.” Just what will it take for you to sell your soul to the devil?
I object to my tax money being used to bribe people to have this experimental vaccine. It’s strange that the government is having to bribe people into getting an unapproved vaccine which by now they are either giving away prizes or holding public services hostage such as education, travel, entertainment. Let people make their own choice and stop wasting my tax money on bribes.
Deborah I couldn’t agree with you more. I wonder just how many young people will get this vaccine just because” everybody else is doing it” and in up paying for the consequences for the rest of their lives. THERE IS NO LONG TERM DATA I don’t trust any agency involved in all this
Read up folks, the virus was never the bioweapon…it’s the vaccine.
I’ll take this as my cue to corner the tin foil market.
Ah yes, the usual baseless character assassination of us as tin foil hat people.
You are a caricature of the vacuous Leftist.
I think you mean vaccinated.
Buy a dictionary.
I mean what I said.
I thought medical information was supposed to be private. Why does the government have the ability to match a number with a name?
