From our friends at Nautilus:
Falsehoods and misconceptions about the COVID-19 vaccines have been running rampant since the start of the pandemic. From outrageous claims that the vaccines contain microchips to unfounded fertility concerns, there are no shortage of vaccine conspiracy theories. A new concern among vaccine skeptics is that mRNA COVID vaccines—like those from Pfizer and Moderna—can somehow alter your DNA structure, leading to long-term health issues.
Like many of the rumors circulating about the vaccines, this idea is unequivocally and patently untrue.
Rob Murphy, executive director of the Institute for Global Health at Northwestern University, told the Washington Post it’s “amazing how often that question comes up.”
