The COVID-19 vaccine has been on the lips of many in recent months but especially in the last few weeks. While government tries to acquire a suitable amount for the population, there are those who are waiting patiently and others who believe it would only cause further harm.
There are some who believe that the COVID-19 vaccine will contain a microchip, there are also others who believe that 5G networks cause the coronavirus through radiation emissions. The Gauteng Department of Health has since sought to bust any myths that appear to be making the rounds on social media. Professor Salim Abdool Karim also said the public has the right to make an “informed decision” about the vaccine rather than one that’s been based on misinformation.
WILL YOUR COVID-19 VACCINE CONTAIN A MICROCHIP?
First things first, we need to get the microchip saga out of the way. Will the COVID-19 vaccine contain a microchip that will be used to track and control you? The answer, according to government, is that there’s no vaccine “microchip” and there’s no evidence to support claims that such a move is planned.
“Receiving a vaccine will not allow people to be tracked and personal information would not be entered into a database,” it added.
CAN VACCINES ALTER YOUR DNA?
According to the Gauteng Health Department, COVID-19 vaccines work by stimulating the body in the same way the virus would if someone were infected. That means when you receive the vaccine the body then recognises that it looks like the coronavirus and then it releases certain chemicals that start a chain reaction to make immune cells that can fight the real virus.
“The vaccine does not work on the DNA of the body,” it added.
DO 5G NETWORKS CAUSE THE CORONAVIRUS THROUGH RADIATION TRANSMISSIONS?
Taking a break from the COVID-19 vaccine, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has made it clear that viruses cannot travel on radio waves/mobile networks.
“It’s also a fact that COVID-19 is spreading in many countries that do not have 5G mobile networks. COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks. People can also be infected by touching a contaminated surface and their eyes, mouth or nose.” it said.
DO COVID-19 VACCINES HAVE ‘THE MARK OF THE BEAST – 666?’
According to the department, the above has also been regarded as a COVID-19 vaccine myth.
“Vaccines are made to save lives and are developed through technology. They have no connection with any religious organisations and cannot be infused with spirits, demons or other abstract ingredients,” the department said.
“There is no conspiracy to possess, bewitch or control anybody,” it added.
