Superconductive materials were found in Moderna and J&J COVID-19 vaccine vials.

No scientific studies back up Madej's assertions about superconductive compounds on vaccine vials. The vaccine's safety was assessed before approval.

No scientific studies back up Madej's assertions about superconductive compounds on vaccine vials. The vaccine's safety was assessed before approval.Countries worldwide strive to improve their vaccination drive while anti-vaxxers push misinformation to discourage people from getting vaccinated. Since the vaccines were first released, there have been contentions on the composition and the ingredients of the COVID-19 vaccines. In a show, a speaker claimed that superconductive materials were found in Moderna and Johnson & Johnson(J&J) COVID-19 vaccine vials.

In the Stew Peters Show on September 29, 2021, Dr. Carrie Madej, Osteopathic Internal Medicine Physician, claimed the above. Madej showed the findings of her examination of COVID-19 vaccine(Moderna and J&J) vials. She presented the pictures of the slide from the microscopic view; she described them as substances harmful for an individual.

The slide results have not been peer-reviewed. Madej exclaimed that there is no other information except for the slides and needs more samples to verify the results. No detailed reports about the results are available, aside from the pictures of the slide.

Some reports shed light that the images of the slide are old and not related to the vaccines. They are the findings of other samples.

AFP previously flagged reports on the vaccination components shown on the Stew Peters Show as inaccurate or False. The BBC even flagged up Madej's report on the COVID-19 vaccine's ability to alter DNA as False.

Global health organizations have scientifically proved that vaccines are safe. Both Moderna and J&J vaccine fact sheets to the recipients and caregivers have listed all the vaccine ingredients. A single non-peer-reviewed report cannot determine vaccine safety. Hence the claim is False that Moderna and J&J COVID-19 vaccine vials contain superconductive materials.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
