You hear about it in the news, on the streets, in your doctor’s office, dining room, and PTA meeting. What’s the truth about the COVID-19 vaccine?
Like the rest of the world, we’re still talking about the coronavirus and COVID-19 vaccine. When you educate yourself about resources available to you and your family, you are responsibly taking your health into your own hands. We’re sharing four more myths about the COVID-19 vaccine.
4 More Myths About the COVID-19 Vaccine
“I won’t be able to donate blood if I get the COVID-19 vaccine.”
You can absolutely donate blood after receiving the vaccine. In fact, there is no waiting period for vaccine recipients. As long as you feel okay, you can give blood. You might be asked about which vaccine you received and when.
“I might get a COVID-19 variant if I get the vaccine.”
Variants have nothing to do with the vaccine. They occur randomly and are very expected when it comes to a mutating virus. The vaccine has so far proven very effective against COVID-19 variants.
“My menstrual cycle will be affected if I hang around someone who has received the COVID-19 vaccine.”
Stress, sickness, and changes to your routine will affect your menstrual cycle. Being around someone who has received the vaccine will not.
“The vaccine contains microchips and metals that will make me magnetic.”
There is no microchip in the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccines are metal-free.
