Covid-19 vaccines don’t contain a microchip, but Twitter injected memes anyway

Will the new one Coronavirus Do you microchip a vaccine?

The answer is no: it is not scientifically possible, but if you had asked conspiracy theorists about it, you might have got a different answer. The conspiracy theory really is that bad and widespread The New York Times ironically had to write an article titled “No, there are no microchips in it Coronavirus Vaccinations. “

Pfizer contains 10 ingredients Coronavirus Vaccines, but none of them are a government-planted tracking microchip to monitor people’s movements.

In the vaccine itself, there’s an active ingredient: a molecule called messenger RNA, or mRNA, that contains genetic instructions for a Coronavirus Protein called spike. Once injected, the mRNA instructs human cells to create spikes, exposing the immune system to a highly recognizable trait of the virus. The idea is to help the body learn one of the most important characteristics of the virus so that the virus will be recognized and quickly cleared if it tries to establish an infection, the article explains.

The mRNA is broken down quickly and does not leave any traces in the body. All that remains is a molecular memory of the virus – the intended target of any vaccine.

Pfizer’s vaccine also contains nine other ingredients. Four of them are lipids with incredibly complex chemical names: ((4-Hydroxybutyl) azandiyl) bis (hexane-6,1-diyl) bis (ALC-3015); (2-hexyl decanoate), 2-[(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N, N-ditetradecylacetamide (ALC-0159); 1,2-distearoyl-snglycero-3-phosphocholine (DPSC); and cholesterol.

The Pfizer vaccine, like one made by Moderna, uses lipid nanoparticles to coat the RNA. The nanoparticles are basically tiny, fatty spheres that protect the mRNA and help it slide into cells, reports Technology review.

So definitely no room for a microchip of any kind. The conspiracy theory is so widespread (it has been around since May) that people who received the vaccine posted memes on Twitter about getting the microchip.

If you’re still not convinced, Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech have released their ingredient lists, and neither of them gives a microchip. In fact, Pfizer also states that it contains no preservatives.
