COVID-19 vaccination centers in the U.S. erected banners asking parents to donate their children's organs.

The image of a banner advertising COVID-19 vaccination and calling parents to donate their children's organs is morphed.

The image of a banner advertising COVID-19 vaccination and calling parents to donate their children's organs is morphed.On October 29, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the emergency use of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11. Since then, many fake stories discrediting the vaccines for children have been making rounds on social media.

One such image of a poster suggesting that COVID-19 vaccines are unsafe and will cause death in children has been circulating. A reverse image search results reveal that the viral image is doctored, and the original image does not mention organ donation.

We found the original photo ad published on the New England Patriots website. The same poster can be seen in the YouTube news report by CBS Boston and the NFL website. The sign was put up outside Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, providing an opportunity for COVID-19 vaccination to anyone attending the New England Revolution soccer match held in July. The original poster had text in Spanish which read vaccines were available, and no appointment was necessary.

It is obvious that the photo is edited, and hence we mark the claim as false.
