The team of Vox Chek, an independent analytical platform, as part of a partnership with Facebook to verify fakes, has investigated and unequivocally claims that information about the attraction of the metal to the vaccination site, which allegedly indicates the presence of chips in vaccines, is unreliable.
However, independent foreign fact checkers from Reuters, FullFact, AAP FactCheck, Science Feedback, PolitiFact, Istinomer, FactCheck Georgia, USA TODAY, FactCheck.org, managed to declare that the information is far-fetched. The conclusion is unambiguous:
“COVID-19 vaccines do not contain metals or microchips that could attract a magnet.”
But people tend to believe in miracles and fairy tales, especially defending their opinions about not only the uselessness, but also the danger of vaccines. Therefore, “reliable” videos continue to circulate on the Internet, although many of them are labeled “false information”. The coins and magnets stuck to the hands at the injection site are designed to convince that something with the vaccines is not clean, and under the skin, in the place of the tiny injection mark, there is now a chip inserted together with the drug.
COVID-19 vaccines do not contain metals or microchips that could attract a magnet. Except of course incident in Japanwhere metallic impurities were found. But they, as determined by experts, somehow got into ampoules during the production process from factory machines, possibly due to incorrect installation of equipment. So this can be called carelessness of workers and weak control over the quality of products at a particular plant. Let’s take a look at what is actually included in vaccines.
Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna preparations contain mRNA, lipids, salts, substances to maintain pH. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine contains a modified adenovirus, antioxidants, amino acids, ethanol, an emulsifier, sugar and salt. As you can see, none of the ingredients are metal, and therefore cannot attract a magnet.
The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, in addition to ingredients similar to Johnson & Johnson, includes magnesium chloride as a preservative. However, he, too, is not able to attract a magnet – even in elementary form, even in the form of magnesium chloride salt. Michael Cowie, professor of physics at Trinity College, Dublin, explains to Reuters:
It will take about one gram of iron to attract and maintain a magnet permanently at the injection site, and the dose volume of the COVID-19 vaccine is very small (0.3 ml in Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and 0.5 ml in Moderna and Johnson & Johnson).
Experts say that even if you imagine for a second that vaccines contain a magnetic ingredient, the amount of the injected drug is clearly not enough to keep the magnet on the skin. Move on.
The smallest RFID chips in existence – they are designed to store and transmit information to a nearby reader – are approximately 0.25 mm in size. To pass through the needle of the syringe, the dimensions of the microcircuit cannot exceed 10 microns, or 0.01 mm. So the introduction of such devices is not possible, says Cassandra Berry, professor of viral immunology at Murdoch University, in a comment for AAP FactCheck.
And tell me, please, how to make sure that the heroes of the videos have really been vaccinated, and that the notorious magnet is adhered to the skin without the use of any adhesive?
However, “Blessed is he who believes – warmth to that in the world!”, As Chatsky said in Griboyedov’s immortal comedy “Woe from Wit”.
