A Facebook post claimed to show evidence that Pfizer or AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccinations made you magnetic at the injection site. The post also includes what it claims to be video proof of this, as well as a screenshot of the user’s Bluetooth settings page, which the user says shows codes for people nearby. who have been vaccinated.
As we wrote before, vaccines cannot physically make you magnetic. There is nothing in them that can do this and the videos claiming to show it are likely to show the effect of a small, light object adhering to the arm due to moisture on the surface of the skin.
There is nothing in the vaccine that could have anything to do with Bluetooth. Vaccines are made up of a number of chemicals and do not contain anything capable of transmitting radio waves over short distances, which is Bluetooth. The vaccines don’t contain microchips or anything like that.
The message reads: “there is [sic] a bluetooth rumor too, I scanned my mom and dad and the bottom numbers in the photo appeared, AC on dad and EC on mum. “
The screenshot in the article shows what appear to be a few different devices the phone has connected to in the past, including what appear to be car stereos and speakers. At the bottom of the screenshot are three more “available devices,” two of which appear to be claiming to be her parents’ vaccines.
These codes are Media Access Control (MAC) addresses – 12-character codes that identify the hardware items that can connect to each other. Devices like mobile phones, computers, gaming consoles, and even things like WiFi-enabled washing machines all have them. The phone screen in the Facebook post even says, “Device name will appear when this device is connected.” “
We searched for the same addresses starting with “AC” and “EC” that were displayed in the Facebook post on several MAC address search websites. The “CE” code, which the Facebook user said was her mother’s vaccine, is actually a product of the Logitech company, which makes wireless accessories, and the “AC” code will be a product made by a company called Chongqing Fegui Electronics, which appears to be the maker of a number of devices, including video players, laptops, and printers.
If you look at your mobile phone’s Bluetooth settings, you will likely see a number of other available devices that your phone has never connected to. These are the devices in the area around you. If you’re at home, you can see your neighbors ‘devices listed, or if you’re on public transport, your fellow travelers’ tech items.
The appearance of these MAC addresses does not prove that there is anything untoward in the vaccine that can connect via Bluetooth.
