French scientist did not say vaccines would kill people within two years

A claim has been made that French virologist Luc Montagnier said all people vaccinated against Covid-19 will die within two years.

The viral message, which is attached to a linked article by Canadian news site LifeSiteNews, is headlined: “All vaccinated people will die within  two years.”

The message goes further to state that “Nobel Prize winner Luc Montagnier has confirmed that there is no chance of survival for people who have received the vaccine.”

The text purports to quote Montagnier saying:

“There is no hope, and no possible treatment for those who have been vaccinated already. We must be prepared to incinerate the bodies.”

At no point in the interview does Montagnier say any of this. These are made up quotes.

Montagnier (88), who jointly won the 2008 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, along with Françoise Barré-Sinoussi, for their work in identifying the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), has called ongoing mass vaccinations against Covid-19 “a mistake”.

“It’s an enormous mistake, isn’t it? A scientific error as well as a medical error. It is an unacceptable mistake. The history books will show that, because it is the vaccination that is creating the variants,” the virologist said.

Several experts have dismissed Montagnier’s comments as lacking scientific basis.

It should be noted that the channels that carried Montagnier’s comments, RAIR FoundationPlanetes360 and LifeSiteNews routinely publish conspiracy theories and fan anti-vaccine sentiment. LifeSiteNews was permanently removed from Facebook in May 2021 for spreading Covid-19 misinformation.

It is not true that Montagnier said all people vaccinated against Covid-19 would die within two years.

His actual controversial statement, that vaccines were creating new coronavirus variants, has been dismissed by several experts.

The websites that carried the claims are all known for spreading false information on Covid-19.
