Can COVID vaccines cause VAIDS?
No. There is no substantiated evidence supporting the notion that COVID vaccines are linked to VAIDS. In reality, VAIDS is not a medically recognized health condition; instead, it is a conspiracy theory alleging that COVID-19 vaccines can trigger an autoimmune response, resulting in the development of AIDS.

Quick Take

An article published in a media website claims that talk show host and podcaster Megyn Kelly says she contracted VAIDS after getting vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine. We fact-checked and found the claim to be Mostly False.

Rating

The Claim

In the People’s Voice article, it was inaccurately asserted that Megyn Kelly had declared she had contracted Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS) following her COVID-19 mRNA vaccine.

Fact Check

Did Megyn Kelly say she contracted VAIDS after getting vaccinated?

No, Megyn Kelly did not say that she contracted VAIDS after getting vaccinated with COVID vaccine. There is no evidence to support this claim.

We found that the People’s Voice article begins with the statement, ‘SiriusXM host Megyn Kelly has revealed that she contracted Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS) as a direct result of taking the mRNA Covid jab’. Intrigued by this claim, we conducted a search to find the full episode of the SiriusXM show mentioned in the People’s Voice article, wherein Megyn Kelly supposedly made this statement.

In the episode titled ‘Legacy Media Constraints, and More COVID Gaslighting, with Bari Weiss, Nellie Bowles & David Zweig’, available on YouTube, Kelly expressed regret for having received the COVID-19 vaccine, despite being a 52-year-old woman. She believed that she didn’t actually need the vaccine because she had contracted COVID-19 multiple times before and felt she would have been fine without it.

Furthermore, Kelly mentioned that after receiving the COVID-19 booster shot and subsequently contracting COVID-19 within three weeks, she tested positive for an autoimmune issue during her annual physical examination. Seeking answers, she consulted a highly regarded rheumatologist in New York and inquired whether this autoimmune issue could be linked to receiving the booster and then contracting COVID-19. The rheumatologist indicated that similar connections had been observed in other cases, suggesting that, in some instances, the vaccine and subsequent COVID-19 infection might have triggered autoimmune issues.

Our research shows that the People’s Voice website has a history of disseminating inconsistent and misleading information through social media channels. In a prior instance, we debunked a claim made by this website asserting that the Dutch were euthanizing individuals without their consent. Additionally, in another article, the website suggested that Pope Francis was endorsing euthanasia.

Further investigation revealed that this particular website is notorious for regularly publishing stories lacking scientific evidence to support their claims. It is important to note that The People’s Voice, formerly known as Newspunch, has a well-established track record as a source of false information, having been in existence for a considerable period. They frequently propagate stories that lack credibility and authenticity.

Is VAIDS a real health condition?

No. VAIDS is not a real health condition. VAIDS is a made-up term that is not recognized by the medical community. It is a conspiracy theory that claims COVID-19 vaccines can cause the immune system to attack itself, leading to AIDS. We have previously debunked COVID-19 vaccines cause VAIDS syndrome to show that COVID-19 vaccines are not causing AIDS. However, available evidence does inform that it is possible for COVID-19 vaccines to trigger an autoimmune response in some people, but more research is needed to confirm this. Some of the autoimmune diseases that have been reported after COVID-19 vaccination include Guillain-Barré syndrome, myocarditis, pericarditis, autoimmune hepatitis, autoimmune thyroiditis, autoimmune arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.
