Misinformation about coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccines has been spreading since they were first used.

Unverified studies, unverified claims and out-of-context data are regularly shared across websites and social media around the world, fueling dangerous myths about the virus and vaccines..

Here are some common misinformation about vaccines:

side effects

There is a common concern about COVID-19 vaccines that they could cause harm or even death to recipients.

Some websites claim a link between the health risks of receiving the vaccine, and others provide information that people then use as purported evidence that the vaccines are dangerous..

And according to what was stated in a training video on the “Virus” website, the appearance of symptoms after vaccination does not necessarily mean that the vaccine caused a health problem, and if one of the symptoms appears after vaccination, this does not necessarily mean that the symptom occurred as a result of vaccination.

Leading medical bodies in the United States and Europe have confirmed that rare side effects can occur as a result of some vaccines, such as blood clots or myocarditis, but the benefits of receiving vaccines outweigh the risks..

weak immune system

Another common medical myth that has no scientific evidence but persists is that vaccines can weaken the immune system.

A December post from a US website claimed that Covid vaccines caused what’s called “vaccine-acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.”

But the study in question, which covered the waning effects of vaccines over time, did not mention any such “syndrome”, and one of its authors emphasized that the publication amounted to “misinformation”.

infertility

And one of the videos, which was published in 2020, claimed that “97% of Corona vaccine recipients will become infertile,” citing “leaks from major pharmaceutical companies.”

But so far, sterility has not been mentioned as a side effect of any vaccine, whether the coronavirus vaccines or any other vaccine.

“There is no vaccine in the world that can cause infertility,” said Catherine White, professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Boston University School of Medicine, when asked about the matter last year.

DNA modification

And allegations have spread online about some vaccines that they alter DNA, and they include “mRNA” or “messenger ribonucleic acid” vaccines, which tell the body to produce proteins similar to those in the virus instead of using a modified component or virus, as in a vaccine Influenza, for example.

This technology has led some to believe false claims that vaccines interfere with people’s genes.

But the genes are located in a special part of the cells of the body called the nucleus, and this type of vaccines do not reach this part of our bodies, which means that it is impossible for the substance to reach our DNA.

Statistics out of context

Statistics surrounding vaccines are often taken out of context or distorted to show the ineffectiveness of vaccines.

In France, for example, some people refer to official figures saying that vaccinated people have more cases of Covid than unvaccinated people..

But given that the bulk of the French population has been vaccinated, more than 75%, it is not surprising that people who did get vaccinated become infected..

It is well known that COVID-19 vaccines help prevent severe illness and death, but do not necessarily prevent the virus from spreading.

This means that infections are still recorded among some of those who received the vaccine, and there will be more infections among the vaccinated as more people are vaccinated..

For example, if 100% of the population is vaccinated, any infection or hospitalization will be among the vaccinated.

This is not a reflection of receiving vaccinations, but a well-known phenomenon among statisticians, known as the “Simpson paradox”.
