On November 27, 2020, Facebook user Eka Gurgenidze published a post with American politician and diplomat Henry Kissinger’s quote about mandatory vaccination. The post is published with Kissinger’s photo and the star of David. According to the mentioned quote, mandatory vaccination is the first step in controlling the “herd” and if you convince people of doing so, they will agree to genetically modify and sterilize their children as well, which will reduce the world population.
As of November 30, Eka Gurgenidze’s post has 613 shares.

The mentioned quote doesn’t belong to Kissinger and it’s fake. Open sources don’t verify that the same statement or one of similar content has ever been made by the American politician. Identical fake quote of Kissinger disseminated on English social network in 2019-2020.
The mentioned quote with the photo of Henry Kissinger has been disseminated on English social networks at different times and its authenticity was fact-checked by the fact-checking platform – PolitiFact in 2019, and media outlet Reuters in 2020. As Kissinger’s representatives confirmed to Reuters, the quote doesn’t belong to the former diplomat. Moreover, Kissinger’s public speeches, essays, and interviews are collected on the online archive, where the media outlet couldn’t find such a quote.
Some posts disseminated by the English-speaking users together with the quote indicate the date and the particular speech during which Kissinger allegedly uttered the same words. According to this version, the quote was from Kissinger’s 2009 speech at “World Health Organization Council On Eugenics”, albeit such a council doesn’t exist in the World Health Organization.
