This states the claim that the Pfizer vaccine has graphene oxide.
This is the rebuttal.
Graphene Oxide In Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccines? Here Are The Latest Unsupported Claims
The Covid-19 vaccines are not like those Monday morning surprise dishes at your local restaurant. They aren’t like some of those less regulated dietary supplements that may secretly contain Viagra or steroids either. No, Covid-19 vaccines should not have unexpected ingredients. To make sure people know what they are getting, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has posted an ingredient list for the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine on its website. So, has the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Yet, there are now claims circulating that the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine is around 99% graphene oxide. This despite the fact that graphene oxide does not appear on either the FDA or CDC list. For example, an Instagram post included the following statement: “99% Graphene Oxide in Pfizer V4X? Spanish scientists obtain vial of Pfizer v4xin3 and find that 98-99%.” In this case, “V4X” presumably is shorthand for “vaccine” rather than “vagina for your ex.”
As PolitiFact.com, a nonprofit project operated by the Poynter Institute, described, the post indicated that graphene oxide, “is toxic to the human body and causes a number of problems.” A video accompanying the post featured someone named “Dr. Jane Ruby.” Ruby advanced claims that over 99% of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine consists of graphene oxide and that “There’s no other reason for this to be in here except to murder people.”
Here’s a Tweet thread that featured the aforementioned Ruby:
As you can, @PunchyMr pointed out that Ruby has doctorate in psychology not medicine. That’s even though Ruby lists on her Twitter profile “Medical Expert”:
The word “medical expert” is not something that you can just throw out there. It’s not like saying that you are an “asparagus petting” expert. If you position yourself as a medical expert, what you say can really affect people’s health. What degrees, training, and experience does Ruby has? Well, Ruby’s website has the following description: “Dr. Jane Ruby is a Washington DC health economist and New Right political pundit with fascinating conservative insights and breaking news in the world of New Media!” Does that sound like a “medical expert”?
The post mentioned Spanish scientists without specifying their qualifications or presenting their data for the scientific community to review. Beware of anyone offering the word “scientists” without much more details on why anyone should believe them. If you had a basketball game that you had to win, would you rely on a stranger telling you that she has assembled a bunch of “players”? There would be no guarantee of how well they could actually play basketball. In fact, it could be just a bunch of people not interested in monogamy, which won’t help you win the basketball game.

No evidence of ‘graphene oxide’ that’s ‘toxic’ in Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine
If Your Time is short
- Pfizer says it does not use graphene oxide and no such ingredient is listed in any of the three COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use in the U.S.
An Instagram post with an incendiary video that speaks of murder claims that Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is dangerously packed with something called graphene oxide.
The post, which uses abbreviations for the word vaccine, states:
“99% Graphene Oxide in Pfizer V4X? Spanish scientists obtain vial of Pfizer v4xin3 and find that 98-99%.”
Graphene oxide, the post continues, “is toxic to the human body and causes a number of problems.”
The post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)
A Pfizer spokesperson told PolitiFact that while graphene oxide — a material made by the oxidation of graphite — is used in some vaccines, it is not used at Pfizer.
An Instagram post claimed that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is “99% graphene oxide,” which is “toxic to the human body and causes a number of problems.”
Pfizer said it does not use the material, and it is not shown in a federal list of ingredients in the three COVID-19 vaccines authorized for emergency use in the U.S.
We rate the post False.
