A social media post claims that covid-19 vaccine can spread to unvaccinated people through sexual contact. We fact-checked and found this claim to be False.
A Facebook post with the caption, “Don’t have sex with a vaccinated person ” shares a video that shows microscopic images of blood purportedly drawn from a person who did not receive a COVID-19 vaccine but had sex with someone who did. Towards the end of the video, the narrator even states, “ We’ve finally proven that it can spread through sexual intercourse.”
Can the COVID-19 vaccine spread to an unvaccinated person through sexual contact?
No, the COVID-19 vaccine cannot spread to an unvaccinated person through sexual contact. COVID-19 vaccines work by stimulating the immune system to produce a response against the spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. They do not contain live virus or the complete virus, so they cannot be transmitted through sexual contact or any other form of close contact.
Also, the vaccine doesn’t spread from person to person. There is currently no evidence to suggest that the COVID-19 vaccine can transmit through body fluids such as semen, vaginal secretions, or breast milk. The vaccines do not contain the live virus that causes COVID-19 and do not cause a person to test positive for the virus after being vaccinated.
Earlier rumours were spread stating that sexual intercourse with a COVID-19-vaccinated man causes menstrual problems in an unvaccinated woman. However, THIP Media fact-checked it and found it to be False.
The vaccines authorized for emergency use or approved for COVID-19 are designed to prevent illness and reduce the spread of the virus by providing immunity to the vaccinated person. They do not change a person’s DNA, and they do not create infectious viral particles that can be passed to others.
The vaccines have undergone rigorous testing to ensure their safety and efficacy, and they have been shown to be highly effective at preventing COVID-19.
The COVID-19 vaccines have been shown to be highly effective at preventing COVID-19.
Furthermore, it is important to follow recommendations from public health authorities to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status. This includes wearing masks, practicing good hand hygiene, and following social distancing guidelines, especially when in close contact with others outside of your household.
Misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine is not new. THIP Media has already fact-checked several claims, such as, it has increased the cases of breast cancer, etc.
