Prayer #393: For Counterfeit COVID-19 Vaccines in Mexico and Poland
Pfizer, the manufacturer of one of the major vaccines used here in the United States, has recently confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that counterfeits of its vaccine have been circulating in Mexico and Poland. Some of these, using an anti-wrinkle substance as an ingredient, have been selling for $1000 a shot through black markets. "Pfizer has identified counterfeit versions of its COVID-19 vaccine in Mexico and Poland," the company said in a press statement. "We are cognizant that in this type of environment---fueled by the ease and convenience of e-commerce and anonymity afforded by the Internet---there will be an increase in the prevalence of fraud, counterfeit, and other illicit activity as it relates to vaccines and treatments for COVID-19." Pfizer added that no legitimate vaccines are ever sold online.
Pray that God would reveal, through investigational authorities, all attempts at selling counterfeit vaccines across the globe. Pray for protection from vaccine fraud, particularly for people in countries where vaccines are still in very short supply
