Vaccines for COVID-19 do not contain metals or microchips that make the recipient magnetic at the injection site, physicists and medical experts have told Reuters.
The flawed claim was made in a series of viral videos that claimed to show magnets attracted to the arms of alleged recipients of the jab. Several clips said the alleged phenomenon was proof that people had been chipped, while others offered no explanation for the magnet challenge. Only one video mentioned a specific vaccine and claimed that the person on camera had received the Pfizer/BioNTech recording.
However, these reports are not evidence of a magnetic response, nor that COVID-19 shots contain a microchip.
First, during the pandemic, Reuters has debunked baseless conspiracies about microchips in coronavirus vaccines, often targeting Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates.
Second, none of the UK or US approved COVID-19 shots contain any metallic ingredients. Many other shots contain small amounts of aluminum, but researchers at the University of Oxford say this is no more harmful than the minimal amounts naturally found in almost all foods and drinking water.

Third, even if COVID-19 vaccines contained metals, they would not cause a magnetic reaction. Medical professionals at the Meedan Health Desk said, “The amount of metal that must be in a vaccine to attract a magnet is far greater than the amounts that can be present in a small dose of a vaccine.”
They added that humans are all naturally “a little magnetic” because we contain small amounts of iron. However, the combination of iron and water in the body repels magnets very slightly, and this feature is the basis of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans that allow doctors to assess your organs in hospitals.
Professor Michael Coey of the School of Physics at Trinity College Dublin also described the claims as “complete nonsense” and told Reuters via email that you would need about one gram of iron metal to attract a permanent magnet to the injection site. and support, something you would ‘feel easy’ if it were there.
By the way, my wife got her second dose of the Pfizer vaccine today and I got mine over two weeks ago. I checked that magnets aren’t attracted to our arms!” he wrote.
Responding to a “magnet challenge” video specifically claiming to contain a recipient of a Pfizer shot, a company spokeswoman confirmed in an email to Reuters that their vaccine contains no metals and cannot cause a magnetic reaction when it is used. is injected.
JUDGMENT: False. Experts say that vaccinated individuals cannot experience magnetism at the injection site.
