This is being propagated based on an open letter that was written to the authorities by a Belgian veterinarian Geert Vanden Bossche.

The fact is that the vaccination puts pressure towards the variants is not right. Moreover most of the mutants took place before the vaccination drive began. Moreover there is also evidence that shows that the vaccination can cut the transmission. It also reduces the viral load in asymptomatic people, evidence has also shown. Hence the claim being made that the vaccination drive will wipe out a large part of the human population is not right, misguiding and only meant to create panic.
