Common rumours and myths about the Covid-19 vaccine:

  • the vaccine can make you infertile: this is false and there is no evidence to support this claim.
  • the vaccine was developed too fast and there has not been enough research: the vaccine has had undergone a huge amount of research, testing and regulatory approval, before it was made available to the public. In March 2021, over 20 million people have had the Covid vaccination in the UK, and 320 million people across the world.
  • the vaccine has severe side-effects and changes your DNA: there is no evidence that the vaccine can alter your DNA, and most people experience only mild side effects such as a sore arm, a headache and feeling tired and achy.
  • the ingredients are not halal or kosher: the Covid-19 vaccine does not contain any animal products or egg.
  • the vaccine contains microchips: this is not true, the vaccine only contains medicine.
  • the vaccine contains aborted fetus cells: this is not true, again the vaccine only contains medicine.
  • the vaccine causes blood clotting: there is insufficient evidence to suggest a link between the vaccine and blood clotting. More information can be found on the GOV.uk website, the website for the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis and the Astrazeneca website.
