Some days, I do feel like I’d rather belong to any other species. It’s nice to know that there is a way out.
“They are not even technically human anymore. Vaccinated people are honestly a threat to humanity as a whole,” one anti-vaxxer wrote of the meme vilifying those who get the jab.
I’ve been vaccinated! Does this mean I’m not humany anymore? What a relief.
“People who are vaccinated will have modified DNA,” it continues. “No one discusses that DNA is passed onto the next generation. The risk that your children will marry into other cultures is possibly now shadowed by the fact that your children may marry into a COVID vaxed gene group potentially shortening their lives and that of others.”
Except…none of that is true. It’s an RNA vaccine, and unless you happen to have a reverse transcriptase that recognizes the vaccine sequence (hint: YOU DON’T), it’s not going to be inserted into your DNA. It’s going to be translated into a protein that will provoke an immune response until the RNA is degraded, which is inevitable. So nope, it’s not going to modify your genome, and it’s not going to be passed on to your progeny, and your kids will eventually have to be vaccinated.
Darn. I’m still human, and I still share a species with the dishonest twits who spread this misinformation.
