He got it backwards:

Vic. Health Minister Martin Foley's vaccination gaffe fuels misinformation around the globe

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-10-01/ ... /100504420

Anti-vaxxers revel in slip up from Vic. Health Minister

A slip of the tongue by the Victorian Health Minister has provided fodder for anti-vax activists who have shared footage of Martin Foley wrongly suggesting that 95 per cent of hospitalised COVID-19 patients were partially or fully vaccinated.

"Of the people who were in hospital yesterday, 78 per cent were vaccinated, and 17 were partially vaccinated," Mr Foley said during Tuesday's COVID-19 press briefing.

A spokeswoman for Mr Foley confirmed to Fact Check, however, that 78 per cent of those in hospital were unvaccinated, while 17 per cent had received just one dose. That means a mere 5 per cent of hospitalised COVID-19 patients in Victoria were double-jabbed.

His incorrect statement, meanwhile, has spread globally, with a US-based conservative website reporting that the "truth [was] being ignored" and that "95 per cent of the COVID patients in Victoria hospitals are vaccinated".

Fact Check reported on a similar gaffe back in July when the director of health protection at NSW Health, Jeremy McAnulty, announced that "all but one" of more than 40 COVID-19 patients in intensive care had been vaccinated.

Dr McAnulty corrected himself just minutes later (in fact, all but one were unvaccinated), but video of his original statement was shared widely regardless

No, I mean the source that you bolded and put in a red font, and that I isolated from the bla around it - fact check.

How could you possibly be confused about that?

Australians could soon jet to Paris but be refused entrance to Perth with Premier Mark McGowan doubling down on his tough border ban as the Coalition flagged the start of international travel.

Gotta have 95% effective reports coming in from the field to support the claims.

Maybe he has dyslexia and misread the script.

The vaccines are losing effectiveness and big pharma has millions of doses left to sell. 

Incoming social media and MSM blackout on anything "negative" about the vaccine, regardless of truthfulness.

He accidentally said vaccinated, instead of UNvaccinated. It was corrected when the mistake was brought to his attention.

Yeah?

If declining to be poisoned and resisting the weak arguments in favor of it is role playing, sign me up for that role. 

I take my right to body-autonomy and medical privacy pretty seriously. Maybe to you, this is a game. To me, its the game of life.
