Claim Publisher and Date: Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, author of Saying No to Vaccines on 2021-06-09

Health care providers such Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, a physician in suburban Cleveland and author of "Saying No to Vaccines," testified before Ohio lawmakers on June 9th, claiming that the coronavirus spike protein that results from vaccination has "a metal attached to it." A video published on June 7 on the site Rumble and shared thousands of times on soclal media also says magnetism was "intentionally added to 'vaccine' to force mRNA through entire body." Various other claims (here and here) have been made regarding some kind of magnetism produced by metal in the vaccines. We rate these claims as false. All three coronavirus vaccines approved for emergency use in the United States are free from metals and do not produce a magnetic reaction.
