The Prince William Health District What You Should Know:

 

 COVID-19 Vaccines Do Not Contain Microchips

 

Fact: COVID-19 vaccines are developed to fight against disease and are not administered to track your movement. Vaccines work by stimulating your immune system to produce antibodies, exactly like it would if you were exposed to the disease. After getting vaccinated, you develop immunity to that disease, without having to get the disease first.

 Receiving a COVID-19 Vaccine Does Not Cause You to Be Magnetic

 

Fact: Receiving a COVID-19 vaccine will not make you magnetic, including at the site of vaccination which is usually your arm. COVID-19 vaccines do not contain ingredients that can produce an electromagnetic field at the site of your injection. All COVID-19 vaccines are free from metals.
