Fact Check: Can you ‘detox’ to remove vaccine from your body?

Published on:

Quick Take

A number of social media users claim that if you are already vaccinated, you can detoxify your body using certain recipes (a detox bath, drinks, or diets). We fact-checked and found that the claim is false.

The Claim

“The best nutritional supplements to reduce and recover from common vaccine side effects,” claims a Tweet that promotes an organic supplement. The Tweet can be seen here. Similar other posts can also be seen here, and here.

Fact Check

Can supplements help remove vaccine contents from the body?

NO. There is no scientific evidence to this claim. Most scientists across the world have confirmed that the COVID-19 vaccine is irreversibly activated once injected into the body.

There had been similar claims in the past about an alternative medicine procedure called cupping being able to remove vaccine ingredients from the body which we had fact checked.

Angela Rasmussen, virologist and adjunct professor at the University of Saskatchewan in an interaction with NBC News said that, “It’s just not physically possible” to remove vaccine contents from the body.

In the same line, Dr. David Shafran, head of pediatrics at K Health in Cleveland, OH told Medical News Today that, “immune response from the vaccine is a protective one that cannot be reversed or undone.”

Dr. Farzana Hoque, a hospitalist at SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital in Missouri, told Healthline, ““There is no medical or scientific research that proves that these methods will remove toxins from your body.”
