A nurse who is an anti-vaxxer tried to prove that Covid vaccines make people magnetic by sticking a key to her neck – but it kept falling off.
The nurse, who hasn’t been named, was left red-faced after repeatedly trying to stick the metal key to her neck, drawing smirks and sniggers from the crowd behind her as she failed to get it to stick. She pulled the stunt during a health committee meeting in Ohio, where state officials gathered to discuss vaccine laws.
The nurse’s antics followed a testimony by a fellow anti-vaxxer, Dr Tenpenny, who suggested that Covid jabs contain ‘magnetic vaccine crystals’. A certified physician, Dr Tenpenny has a history of repeatedly raising unfounded claims of deaths, strokes and other ‘horrendous side effects’ from the vaccine, reports the Ohio Capital Journal.
She has been identified as one of a dozen of the most prolific anti-vaxxers by the Center for Countering Digital Hate. According to the group, Dr Tenpenny plays a ‘leading role in spreading digital misinformation about Covid vaccines’.
During Tuesday’s hearing, all of which was caught on camera, the nurse then addressed the committee and said: ‘Vaccines do harm people. I found something out while I was on lunch and I want to show it to you.
‘I have a key and a bobby pin here, it sticks to my neck.
‘If someone could explain this, that would be great.’
The nurse then tries to stick both the key and the bobby pin to her neck but both of the items keep falling off her skin.
Undeterred, the nurse the said ‘any questions?’, suggesting she had proved her point despite the fact the metal didn’t stick to her neck.
In the footage of the nurse’s demonstration, people can be seen smirking and laughing and she failed to get the metal to stick.
The Ohio House Health Committee’s met to discuss House Bill 248, a broad weakening of state vaccination laws.
At one point, Tenpenny made a claim to lawmakers, with no evidence behind it, that vaccinated people are somehow magnetized.
The bill is co-sponsored by 16 House Republicans and would prohibit most businesses and organizations from mandating, incentivizing, or otherwise requesting their employees, customers or students get vaccinated.
