March 2, 2022
Accurate vaccination information is essential for avoiding common misconceptions and misinformation. In this post, we will look at some prevalent myths but also the facts. For more information, we highly recommend visiting the CDC’s website.


MYTH: COVID-19 vaccinations contain harmful chemicals.

FACT: Almost all of the chemicals in COVID-19 vaccinations are also found in a variety of foods — fats, carbohydrates, and salts, to name a few.

MYTH: The natural immunity I gain from being infected with COVID-19 is superior to the immunity I gain through immunization with COVID-19.

FACT: COVID-19 vaccine is a safer and more reliable method to establish COVID-19 immunity than being ill with the virus.

MYTH: Variants are caused by COVID-19 vaccinations.

FACT: COVID-19 vaccinations do not produce or induce variations of the COVID-19 virus. COVID-19 vaccinations, on the other hand, can assist to prevent the emergence of new variations.

MYTH: Vaccination is the cause of all occurrences documented in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

FACT: Even if it is unclear if a vaccination caused the condition, anybody can report it to (VAERS). As a result, VAERS data alone cannot indicate whether a COVID-19 vaccine caused the reported adverse event.

MYTH: The mRNA vaccine is not a vaccination in the traditional sense.

FACT: Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines operate differently than other forms of vaccinations, but they nonetheless cause an immunological response in the body.

MYTH: Microchips are included in the COVID-19 vaccination.

FACT: Microchips are not present in COVID-19 vaccinations. Vaccines are designed to protect you from disease and they’re not administered to track your location.

MYTH: The COVID-19 vaccination has the potential to make you magnetic.

FACT: You will not become magnetic after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, even at the injection site, which is generally your arm.

MYTH: COVID-19 vaccines that have been approved for use in the US shed or release their components.

FACT: Vaccine shedding is the release or discharge of any of the vaccine components in or outside of the body and can only occur when a vaccine contains a live weakened version of the virus.

MYTH: COVID-19 vaccinations have the potential to modify my DNA.

FACT: COVID-19 vaccinations have no effect on your DNA and do not interact with it in any way.

MYTH: COVID-19 vaccine can make me seriously ill if I get it.

FACT: In fact, no, the vaccination cannot get you sick with COVID-19 since none of the approved COVID-19 vaccines in the United States contain the live virus that causes COVID-19.
