Fact Check

Can COVID vaccine cause HIV?

No. There is absolutely no proof of COVID-19 vaccines causing HIV. The social media user also offered no logic behind such a statement. Even the experts at Meedan’s Health Desk have confirmed that there is no chance of the COVID-19 vaccines causing HIV.

Can COVID-19 vaccine cause Cancer?

No. There had been some misreporting about COVID-19 vaccines causing a rise in the number of Cancer cases in the USA. But no particular evidence proved the theory.

Rather a research by Harvard Health shows that many Cancer patients delayed their treatments or diagnosis during the pandemic. This has been presented as an explanation to a sudden rise in Cancer patients in some areas.

The COVID-19 vaccines have been approved by all major health authorities. Their ingredients are tested and openly listed. No Cancer causing ingredients have been pointed out by any expert body.
