“The need to take urgent action to protect the most vulnerable of all of our people – infants – presented a dilemma,” @DrCaliff_FDA said. “We knew that ceasing plant operations would create supply problems, but we had no choice given the insanitary conditions.”

False information is circulating on social media stating that COVID-19 vaccines cause monkeypox. That’s just complete nonsense. Here’s the truth… #FDAVaccineFacts

NONE of the FDA-approved/authorized COVID-19 vaccines can cause monkeypox. The vaccines will not infect you w/SARS-CoV-2 or the monkeypox virus. They do not contain these viruses.

There are NO vaccines that inject the “genome of a chimpanzee” into cells of the human body.

Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine/Comirnaty & Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine/Spikevax are made using genetic material (mRNA). They deliver a piece of mRNA that instructs cells in the body to make a copy of the distinctive “spike” protein of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

The result of a person receiving mRNA vaccines is that their immune system will ultimately react defensively to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The mRNA in is only present in the body for a short time & is not incorporated into - nor does it alter - an individual’s genetic material.

The Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine is made using a viral vector made from a specific human virus called adenovirus type 26 (Ad26). The vaccine uses Ad26 to deliver a piece of the DNA (genetic material) that is used to make the distinctive “spike” protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

While adenoviruses are a group of viruses that are relatively common & can cause cold symptoms & pink eye, the Ad26 vector has been modified so that it can’t replicate in the human body to cause illness.

Jynneos, a vaccine approved by FDA in 2019 for the prevention of smallpox & monkeypox disease in adults 18 years of age & older determined to be at high risk for smallpox or monkeypox infection, does not contain the viruses that cause smallpox or monkeypox.

Jynneos is made from a vaccinia virus, a virus that is closely related to but less harmful than the viruses that cause smallpox (variola virus) or monkeypox & can protect against both of these diseases.

Jynneos contains a modified virus (Modified Vaccinia Ankara), which does not cause disease in humans & is non-replicating, meaning it cannot reproduce in human cells.
