|No, The COVID-19 Vaccine Won't Make A Magnet Stick To Your Arm (video) by cPapaAjascO: 10:17am On Jul 10|
Most people are aware that there are some unusual rumors floating around about the COVID-19 vaccine, like that it will torpedo your fertility or that the vaccine is all a plan by Bill Gates to microchip everyone (both of those are entirely false, by the way). But here's anther one with staying power that could use some clearing up: Some people claim that the COVID-19 vaccine will make a magnet stick to your arm.
People on TikTok have been sharing videos of themselves with magnets stuck to their arms and bodies after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. "When your coworker gets the shot and magnets stick to her arm," TikTok user @pretty_gdimples wrote in the caption of one TikTok. In the video, you can see a magnet sticking to someone as a person in the background says, "How do you feel having a microchip in you?...We told you not to get that sh*t."
What do doctors have to say about this?
They're not impressed. "This is stupid. This is completely made up," infectious disease expert Amesh A. Adalja, MD, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, tells Health. "There is no new magnetic capacity conferred by being vaccinated."
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) specifically addresses the whole magnetization thing on its website under "Myths and Facts about COVID-19 Vaccines," writing, "receiving a COVID-19 vaccine will not make you magnetic, including at the site of vaccination, which is usually your arm."
