Videos of people sticking magnets onto their arms where they claim they’ve had the COVID vaccine have racked up millions of views on social media platforms like TikTok, Youtube, Facebook and Instagram.
Some people say there must be something magnetic in the vaccines, and others have gone further to say it’s proof of a microchip – a theory that just isn’t true. None of the COVID Vaccines contain metals that could possibly be magnetic. Other vaccines do have a minimal, safe level of aluminum, but aluminum is not even magnetic.
Nepal’s Ministry of Health and Population has published an official poster to clear out the rumors. It announces, “Covid-19 vaccines do not contain any metal-based ingredients and microchips. So, do not fall for such rumors. A Covid-19 vaccine is safe and effective. It does not harm our health.”
The rumors regarding jabs making their body magnetic have been circulating in Nepal and worldwide, and scientists and experts have busted such claims.
It is proved by America’s Center for Disease Control that all COVID-19 vaccines are free from metals such as nickel, iron, lithium, cobalt, and rare earth alloys, as well as any manufactured products such as electrodes, microelectronics, carbon nanotubes, and nanowire semiconductors.
These posts shared online don’t provide any facts, nor does it have any valid evidence of a magnetic reaction at the COVID-19 vaccine injection site. It is safe to say that COVID shots do not contain any metallic substance. The experts who have tested people claiming to have ‘magnetic’ arms found that once the skin was treated with talcum powder, it removed any possible residue, and thus making their skin lose stickiness.
The evidence and facts suggest that the claim regarding COVID vaccines making our bodies magnetic is false.
Even though there is no way coronavirus vaccines could be causing these magnets to stick, some of the social media videos have clocked up millions of views, some of which have since been removed. In addition, compilation videos of the so-called magnet challenge are spreading on encrypted messaging apps like WhatsApp and Messenger, where the clips have been posted in anti-vaccination groups. But we can be sure that there is absolutely nothing in any COVID vaccine that could make magnets stick.
