False: COVID-19 vaccines contain nano router technology.


The Verdict False

Lists of ingredients used in approved mRNA vaccines are available to the public. There is no evidence of nano router technology in vaccines.

Claim ID 4deb315f

Lists of ingredients used in approved mRNA vaccines are available to the public. There is no evidence of nano router technology in vaccines.In a video clip on BitChute, a man named Ricardo Delgado says that all COVID-19 vaccines contain nano router technology. However, the ingredients of all approved COVID-19 vaccines have been published, and there is no evidence of this kind of technology or material in vaccines. Delgado says that he is the owner and founder of La Quinta Columna, a website based in Spain which publishes medical misinformation and conspiracy theories. The video clip has been viewed thousands of times on Facebook. Delgado says that nanotechnology within vaccines can be linked with Bluetooth wireless technology. He claims to have also found antennas that emit signals to “the inoculated individual.” He goes on to say that the main component in nanotechnology, graphene oxide, can be picked up by electromagnetic waves from different frequency ranges. He links graphene oxide to alleged adverse cases of myocarditis following COVID-19 vaccines. Graphene oxide is not a listed ingredient in COVID-19 vaccines, and this myth has been debunked numerous times. Graphene oxide is an inexpensive material used in several commonly used goods. It is also sometimes used in studies of medicines, as it is highly soluble and can therefore test how well a drug can be absorbed. Conspiracy theorists often say that graphene oxide is present in vaccines or in nano lipid particles in COVID-19 vaccines. According to a Health Desk explainer, nano lipid particles are sometimes used to “protect delicate RNA molecules” when they enter the body. They have been recognized in drug testing since the 1960s. The article adds that polythene glycol is sometimes used to keep particles stable, but they do not contain graphene oxide. Furthermore, a peer-reviewed study published in Frontier shows that graphene oxide may have antimicrobial properties, but further research is needed. As noted in another Logically fact check, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides an exhaustive list of ingredients for the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Janssen COVID-19 vaccines. The U.K. Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) details the list of ingredients for the AstraZeneca vaccine. After reviewing the list of ingredients, it is clear that none of these vaccines contain graphene oxide nanoparticles. The ingredient lists of the vaccines have been published and tested by outside parties. Delgado’s claim closely relates to the 5G conspiracy theory, which espouses the myth that people can be controlled and harmed with mobile technology. Many of these false claims have been linked to the COVID-19 pandemic and mRNA vaccines. As this video has no basis in fact, we have marked it as false.
