In recent times, miscreants are spreading false information regarding COVID-19 vaccination, creating panic among the masses. Anti-vaxxers are propagating their agenda through various platforms of social media. These people are advocating various theories of removing the COVID-19 vaccine from the body of a vaccinated person, such as using wet cupping process to extract blood and bathing with Epsom salt and Borax. However, these theories are misleading as the COVID-19 vaccine cannot be removed from the body once injected. COVID-19 Vaccinated People With Prior Infection May Have More Antibodies: Study.

Videos have surfaced on social media showing the COVID-19 vaccine can be removed using cupping therapy, reported Associated Press. Notably, there is no way to remove a vaccine from the body.

In these videos, anti-vaxxers are misguiding people that the vaccine can be extracted within 30 minutes of the jab, using cupping therapy.
