One year before the pandemic, Pfizer began partnering in the implementation of "vaccine passports' in China with an online payment platform affiliated with the Communist Party.

The pharmaceutical giant boasted of its cooperation with Chinese leaders and Alipay in a June 6, 2018, tweet, reported The National Pulse.

"We are proud to stand with China leaders & @Alipay to introduce new, digital solutions to improve disease education and vaccine access-creating a brighter future for Chinese children," Pfizer said.

An accompanying graphic quoted Wu Kun, general manager of Innovative Pharmaceutical Business at Pfizer China.

"We are honored to be a partner in China's 'Internet + Vaccination' initiative," Wu said.

The National Pulse noted Alipay was founded as an offshoot of the Chinese Communist Party-linked company Alibaba.

State Department official Christopher Ford said Alibaba has been involved in the "research, production, and repair of weapons and equipment for the People’s Liberation Army."

The company, he said, has a "deep record of cooperation and collaboration" with China’s "state security bureaucracy."

The State Department has called Alibaba a "tool" of the Chinese Communist Party because of its assistance in developing "technology-facilitated surveillance and social control."

Pfizer said in its annual review for 2018 that it was using the Alibaba spinoff Alipay "to provide much needed education about disease and vaccinations" and improve payment options for vaccination.

China relies on Alipay for its vaccine passports, as the New York Times reported.

"After users fill in a form on Alipay with personal details, the software generates a QR code in one of three colors," the paper explained. "A green code enables its holder to move about unrestricted. Someone with a yellow code may be asked to stay home for seven days. Red means a two-week quarantine."

The National Post reported Alibaba was penalized recently by the Communist Party for violating laws requiring the company to put the regime's interests ahead of its duty to report critical cybersecurity vulnerabilities to the world.

Pfizer Partnered With China’s Vaccine Passport Platform, Admits Being ‘Proud To Stand With China Leaders.’

Pfizer Inc partnered with a Chinese Communist Party payment platform which has been used to implement “vaccine passports” in China since the outbreak of COVID-19. The company said it was “proud to stand with China leaders.”

The pharmaceutical giant – whose U.S. lobbying efforts hit an all-time high in the past year – expressed its pride for the brutal, communist regime in the following tweet from June 6th, 2018:

“We are proud to stand with China leaders & @Alipay to introduce new, digital solutions to improve disease education and vaccine access-creating a brighter future for Chinese children,” the tweet reads.

“We are honored to be a partner in China’s ‘Internet + Vaccination’ initiative,” reads an accompanying graphic, quoting Pfizer’s China General Manager Wu Kun.

The message also revealed the firm’s partnership with Alipay, a Chinese online payment platform originally founded as an offshoot of the Chinese Communist Party-linked company Alibaba.

Alibaba has also been involved in the “research, production, and repair of weapons and equipment for the People’s Liberation Army (PLA)” and has a “deep record of cooperation and collaboration” with China’s “state security bureaucracy,” according to Assistant Secretary for International Security and Nonproliferation at the U.S. State Department Christopher Ford.

The State Department has also flagged the company as a “tool” of the Chinese Communist Party, aiding in its build-up of “technology-facilitated surveillance and social control.”

Despite these ties, Pfizer partnered with the platform in 2018, as outlined in the company’s annual review:

“We’re using the Alipay platform, which has over 700 million active users in China, to provide much needed education about disease and vaccinations. Additionally, to help China reach its ambitious 2030 goals to reduce infant mortality, we are exploring the use of the platform for mobile payments to improve convenience in Chinese Point of Vaccination centers, as well as options for installment payments that may reduce the financial burden for low income families.”

The unearthing of the partnership between Alipay and Pfizer, which occurred a year prior to the onset of COVID-19, also follows China relying on the platform to institute vaccine passports. As The New York Times explains:

“After users fill in a form on Alipay with personal details, the software generates a QR code in one of three colors. A green code enables its holder to move about unrestricted. Someone with a yellow code may be asked to stay home for seven days. Red means a two-week quarantine.

In Hangzhou, it has become nearly impossible to get around without showing your Alipay code. Propaganda-style banners remind everyone of the rules: “Green code, travel freely. Red or yellow, report immediately.”

Alibaba was recently penalized by the CCP for failing to adhere to recent laws requiring the company to put the regime’s interests ahead of its duty to report critical cybersecurity vulnerabilities to the world.
