An initiative funded in part by the Rockefeller Foundation is investing an initial $7.2 million in behavioral research focused on convincing more people to get the COVID-19 injections, the foundation announced last week.
The initiative is called The Mercury Project, run by the Social Science Research Council (SSRC). In September 2021, the SSRC received a three-year $7.5 million grant from the Rockefeller Foundation “toward the costs of launching a research consortium to drive acceptance and uptake of Covid-19 vaccination efforts and provide insights to counter health mis- and dis- information.” The grant will fund research through August 31, 2024.
The Rockefeller Foundation is a globalist organization founded by oil magnate and robber baron John D. Rockefeller in 1913. Since then, the foundation has influenced many of the world’s largest and most powerful institutions, including the World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health.
The foundation’s $7.5 million grant to SSRC for the Mercury Project remains the lion’s share of a total $10.25 million also granted by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Craig Newmark Philanthropies, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
