The Claim

A video published on social media shows a person sticking what appears to be a small round magnet on meat.

Fact Check

Are COVID vaccines making meat magnetic?

No, there is no truth to the claim that the government is injecting the COVID-19 vaccine into meat. This is a baseless conspiracy theory that has been widely debunked by health experts.

The video in question appears to show someone attempting to use a magnet to test whether the meat has been injected with the COVID-19 vaccine. However, this is not how mRNA vaccines work. The COVID-19 vaccine is administered via injection into muscle tissue, not through food.

No evidence shows that the ingredients in mRNA vaccines contain any metals. We could not find any evidence that can show vaccines contain metal-based adjuvants or preservatives in mRNA vaccines. Therefore, metal objects can’t stick to a vaccination site due to the ingredients in the vaccine. 

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website has confirmed that mRNA vaccines do not contain any metals or other materials that could cause metal objects to stick to the injection site. The vaccines contain the mRNA that codes for the spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, lipids (fats) that help deliver the mRNA into cells, salts to help maintain the pH balance of the vaccine, and a small amount of sugar to stabilize the vaccine.

THIP MEDIA has previously debunked mRNA vaccines being injected into our food supply to show that vaccines cannot spread to livestock.

Veterinary expert

To this, our Veterinary Expert Dr. Vivek Arora, B.V.Sc. & AH, MIVIS adds, “The immunogenicity does not transfer like this. Vaccines are not meant to propagate or induce immunity from cell to cell. In fact, they are made to develop and ‘remember’ the immune repair through vaccine, which can be recollected in an event of exposure.”

There is currently no scientific evidence to suggest that consuming the meat of an animal that has been vaccinated against a particular disease has any effect on the immunity of the person who consumes it. Vaccines work by stimulating the immune system to produce an immune response against a specific pathogen, and this response is specific to the individual who receives the vaccine.

When an animal is vaccinated, the vaccine stimulates the animal’s immune system to produce an immune response that protects it against the targeted pathogen. However, the antibodies and other immune factors produced by the animal in response to the vaccine are not typically present in significant quantities in the animal’s meat. Even if they were, the human digestive system would break them down and render them ineffective.

Therefore, it seems safe to consume the meat of an animal that has been vaccinated against a disease, and there is no reason to believe that doing so would have any effect on the immunity of the person consuming the meat.

Additionally, there is no evidence to suggest that the government is injecting the COVID-19 vaccine into meat. The mRNA vaccines are highly regulated and are administered by qualified healthcare professionals.
