Do COVID-19 Vaccines Magnetize Your Body?

You have seen this questionable phenomenon online.  People who have been vaccinated place a metallic object like a key or a spoon on the lateral side of their shoulder where their COVID-19 vaccine has been injected, and the object sticks as if by magnetic attraction.  A leading anti-vaccine doctor even claims COVID-19 vaccines “magnetize people” and has been put up for ridicule in news reports. 

The vaccine industry and physician groups roundly deny there are any metallic ingredients in any of the COVID-19 vaccines approved for emergency use.  While no component of any vaccine or its excipients (inactive ingredients in trace amounts) list metals on product inserts, certainly, trace amounts of metals below allowable levels are found in almost all pharmaceuticals including vaccines. 

But still, there are these compelling video postings online of people demonstrating magnetism over the deltoid muscle in their shoulder where a needle was inserted to administer the COVID-19 vaccine. 

This drew so much web traffic it prompted the Centers For Disease Control to make a public statement that vaccines do not make anyone magnetic. 

Of course, the news media is quick to dismiss people who claim this, and love to show it fails when people attempt to demonstrate it, and they appear to make fools of themselves. 

But in this day and age of fake news, how does anybody know the person failing to demonstrate this isn’t an actor and this failure was a set up?   

An old magician’s trick

What goes unexplained is that this is an old magician’s trick.  A smooth object placed against very smooth skin becomes bonded by a phenomenon called Van der Waals forces.  This human magnetism is explained online, and even plastic, as long as it is smooth, will stick to the skin in a seeming defiance of gravity. 

Suddenly there was some truth to this

I was ready to dismiss this story when, with a bit more sleuthing, I found a report published in 2017 in The Pharmaceutical Journal about metal impurities found in vaccines.  The report’s authors said the metal shouldn’t be there.  In fact, investigators were baffled by the unintentional existence of metals in vaccines. 

Stainless steel, iron, tungsten, lead, aluminum and other heavy metals  HAVE been found in vaccines, according to the original research report published in the International Journal of Vaccine & Vaccinations

That report stated these particles (you just gotta read this):

 “…can induce effects that can become evident either immediately close to
injection time or after a certain time from administration…..
 After being injected, those microparticles, nanoparticles and aggregates can stay around the injection site forming swellings and granulomas (inflammation, frequently in the lungs)…. But they can also be carried by the blood circulation, escaping any attempt to guess what will be their final destination. We believe that in many cases they get distributed throughout the body without causing any visible reaction, but it is also likely that, in some circumstances, they reach some organ, none excluded and including the microbiota (gut bacteria), in a fair quantity…. vaccines contain components that could themselves be the cause of adverse effects…Given the contaminations we observed in all samples of human-use vaccines, adverse effects after the injection of those vaccines are possible and credible…. particles this size often observed in vaccines can enter cell nuclei and interact with the DNA! (exclamation point mine).

Uh, oh!

Whoa!  Wait a minute, what had I uncovered?  This report emanates from the prestigious National Council of Research of Italy.  What the anti-vaxxers are saying has more than a ring of truth.


What struck me about that report, it was about ”nano-contamination.” 

Nano is a prefix derived from the Greek word for “dwarf.”  One nanometer is 10-9 meters or about 3 atoms long, which is very difficult to comprehend.  The public is getting mixed messages over nano-sized particles. 

That paralleled with another report I had gathered in my investigation entitled: “Future Coronavirus Vaccines May Harness Nanoparticles.” It was about a “prototype of a nanoparticle-based COVID-19 vaccine that researchers believe would not only be cheap, safe, and effective but also remain stable at room temperature.” 

The COVID-19 RNA vaccines now under experimental use are so fragile they have to be stored at -70ºC.  Of acute interest is the nano-particle described is comprised of an iron-containing protein called ferritin, a protein that stores iron in the human body. 

The report, dated January 13, 2021, went on to say: “after a single dose (in lab animals), levels of antibodies were roughly twice as high as the average levels found in the blood of patients who had recently recovered from COVID-19.”

Testing for heavy metals

The pharmaceutical manufacturing industry has, from time to time, addressed the problem of heavy metal contamination.  There are published levels of metals that are tolerated in prescription medicines.  There is no way a product can be produced that is completely free of potentially toxic metals due to the metallic equipment used in manufacturing, let alone, some medicines like insulin for example, are partially comprised of metal (zinc).  Some drugs are metals, like platinum compounds to treat cancer. 

The allowable levels of these metals, in parts per million, have been established.  A test for heavy metals (defined by their atomic weight) becomes a part of Good Manufacturing Practices.  

But what I’m talking about is a large leap in technology, not metals as an artifact, but to use metals in both therapeutic and intentionally nefarious ways.

New industry: Metallic nanoparticles

An entirely new industry is cropping up – – metallic nanoparticles.  A report on the size, share, growth and trends of this industry is already being circulated.  

Some reports don’t just talk about nano-sized metallic molecules, but “magnetic nanoparticles,” though in this report they were confined to diagnostic analysis of test samples, not as vaccines. 

The report went on to say these metallic nanoparticles could potentially be used to block viral entry into cells as well as provoke an immune response.  Sounds like a vaccine of sorts.

Nanotech under development

In a another report entitled “Is Nanotechnology Helping in the Fight Against COVID-19?” published in Frontiers in Nanotechnology, dated 10 November 2020, researchers speak of “magnetic nanoparticles” as “biosensing devices,” and as “digital chips.” OMG. No!

Critics who claim drug companies are implanting “antennas” and “DNA-altering” devices in the current COVID-19 vaccines aren’t too far off from what is on the drawing board. 

All this begs a question: are vaccine makers covertly adding off-label nano-sized metals to batches of their experimental vaccines to sort of try them out?

Nano molecules at hand

You don’t need to wait for nano-medicine (sans bio-antennas or DNA alteration, of course).  Of acute interest, modern medicine and all of its pageantry of patentable nano-medicines, fails to inform the lay public that small nano-size molecules found in nature have already passed proving ground tests.

Small molecules, as presented below, that can pass through cell walls and enter the nucleus and favorably influence genetic machinery, are abundant in nature. 

Molecules with a mass of less than 100 nanometers (billionth of a meter) in one direction are readily absorbed and pass through the blood/ brain barrier. Many natural molecules are already smaller than 100 nanometers and don’t require nanosizing to enter cells.  [Knowledge of Health]

Many of these small molecules are available today as herbal extracts and, so far, have outperformed synthetic analog (look-alike) molecules that pharmacologists have schemed to patent and profiteer.  [Ageing Research Reviews 2009; Nature Medicine 2015] 

While researchers attempt to develop synthetic analogs (molecular look-alikes) of these natural molecules, their efforts may be futile.  Adding a molecular tail to obtain a patent may not be meaningful biologically.  For example, efforts to produce a molecular analog of resveratrol were thwarted by the fact resveratrol via liver metabolism regenerates back to the form of the parent molecule after its absorption, which makes synthetically-made resveratrol-like molecules almost laughable.
