I wanted to say the usual suspects, but it seems like this conspiracy theory was created by someone new…

Are They Putting the COVID Vaccine in Flu Shots?

First things first – as you likely suspect, no, the COVID vaccine is not being packaged and given as flu vaccine.

After all, we don’t even have an approved COVID-19 vaccine yet.

Who is this pediatrician?!?
Who is this pediatrician?!?

But that hasn’t stopped folks from sharing a wild conspiracy theory that they are putting “a very low strain” of COVID in the our flu shots.

The flu shot has strains of COVID?

Wait, what?

These are the strains of flu in this year's flu vaccines.

How about now?

Your post was fact checked because it isn't true and it is causing some parents to skip vaccinating and protecting their kids against the flu.

Not surprisingly, she also thinks the flu vaccine is toxic…

Again, who is the pediatrician that told her the flu shot contains COVID strains?

Although there are plenty of other wild conspiracy theories about flu shots and COVID-19 vaccines, few people actually believe that pediatricians are trying to trick parents into vaccinating and protecting their kids against COVID-19 with fake flu shots.

Still, while we shouldn’t have to say this, no, the flu shot does not contain strains of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and has nothing to do with COVID-19.

Vaccines are safe, with few risks, and are obviously necessary.

Stop listening to and sharing propaganda that can scare parents and lead them away from vaccinating and protecting their kids.
