Shattered: 3 Dangerous Social Media Myths About COVID-19 by Aesculapiul: 2:02am On Jun 09, 2021
Some COVID-19 vaccine myths are extremely wrong. However, they spread like wildfires on social media and can play a role in persuading some people to postpone shooting.
Barbara Ferrer, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, said that some people who write or spread rumors try to attract attention or profit by spreading lies. She said the people who spread the rumors received more than $34,000 in donations from their Facebook page.

"Don't be fooled by these people," Ferrer said. "Social media enables... the spreaders of rumors themselves really make money by spreading harmful lies."
The following are some factual statements designed to refute the rumors that Ferrer heard recently.
The vaccine cannot spread the virus.
The existing COVID-19 vaccine in the United States is unlikely to spread the coronavirus. Ferrer said that these vaccines do not contain any part of the coronavirus-"live, dead, part or all."
"Therefore," she said, "people who are vaccinated will not be infected with COVID-19."
