MYTH: We don’t know what’s in these vaccines
FACT: All three U.S. vaccine makers have published the ingredient lists for their vaccines, available on their websites. The CDC’s website also tells you what’s in the COVID-19 vaccines.
The star ingredient is the COVID-19 mRNA (in Modern and Pfizer) or DNA (in Johnson & Johnson) for the spike protein. Both vaccines also contain lipids (fats) that help deliver the mRNA into your cells and a few other common ingredients that help maintain the pH and stability of the vaccine.
Despite theories circulated on social media, none of the COVID-19 vaccines contain microchips or any form of tracking device.
