The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) has refuted claims that the COVID-19 vaccine create magnetic field around vaccination site of recipients.

This is in reaction to video making rounds on social media that the COVID-19 vaccine produces magnetic effect and cause the body to light up an electric bulb.

Speaking at the weekly press conference on the progress of the COVID-19 vaccination on Tuesday in Abuja, the Executive Director, Dr Faisal Shuaib said the misconception is carried out by mischief makers to undermine the efforts of the agency in fighting the pandemic.

He said “we are witnessing an increasing wave of COVID-19 misinformation and disinformation that should leave any patriotic Nigerian wondering how long mischief makers want the world to remain in the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic itself.

He expressed concern that the right of public to true and public information of collective interest is threatened by just a few individuals who are taking advantage of the social media to mislead people about their health.

He also noted that since the administration of the COVID-19 Vaccine in Nigeria, almost 4 million have been administered in Nigeria with no record of death linked to the vaccination despite claims from some quarters that the vaccine was introduced to depopulate Africans.
