SuperSelf Fact Checks COVID-19 Vaccine Misinformation

You will “not” be a chimp nor a chump after vaccination.

The COVID-19 vaccines will “not” change your DNA, you will “not” be a chimp nor a chump after vaccination.  You will absolutely be the same person that you were before receiving the vaccine, only more protected against getting the coronavirus.  There are other ridiculous conspiracy theories and misinformation circulating on social media about the vaccines, and some folks believing this absurdity could die by deciding not to get vaccinated.

Now let’s set some of the senselessness straight surrounding COVID-19 vaccines:  They will “not” transform you or your children from heterosexual to homosexual. This is preposterous and as-false-as false can be!  Another theory speculates that the vaccines are microchips injected into the body for the purpose of tracking your every move. This too is not true!  And, no, the vaccines will “not” give you the coronavirus and they are “not” full of harmful antigens or toxins. Please do not buy into these and other outlandish conspiracy theories!

Everyone on a ship must have a life jacket.

Vaccines are biological compounds created to provide immunity against infectious disease, preventing severe illnesses and deaths. Think of a vaccination as your life jacket. The ship may sink, but if you are wearing your life jacket, you’ll stay afloat. Just like everyone on a ship must have a life jacket, everyone should get vaccinated.  As more and more people get vaccinated the chances of getting the coronavirus drops significantly. Then perhaps we can get back to life we knew before the pandemic.

Follow the science … 

Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, a Black woman, a research fellow, and a scientific lead at the National Institute of Health made history by leading the team of scientists studying the Moderna vaccine. As a key scientist, Dr. Corbett informs us that the coronavirus vaccines work and are safe and effective.  Ask your health professional about any concerns that you may have regarding the vaccines, and if you want to know the makeup of each, visit the FDA website.  I encourage you to do your own research and fact-check information that you hear or read about before you forward it along.

Continue to maintain safe habits, wear a mask in public, practice social distancing and wash your hands often.

Be Bold and Bloom, when it is your turn, get vaccinated so that you can continue to be the best you every day, in every way, no matter what the circumstances are. Be your SuperSelf, excellence in all you do …

    Bravo Zee,
    Your perspective on this matter is well represented…. and it behooves all of us as well as social media to educate ourselves on the facts, as opposed to conspiracy theorist….
