A picture claiming to be of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is being shared on social media. The post also claims that the vaccine has been made in China.
“Pfizer’s #COVID19 vaccine is “Made in China”…. Ab bhakt kya karenge ???” the post claimed.
Here’s the link to the above post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found it to be false.
Firstly, we checked the official social media handle of Pfizer but did not find any such picture.
Secondly, we checked Pfizer’s website to gather more information regarding the vaccine but did not find any such information there too.
Moreover, we noticed that the label in the viral picture read ‘vaporizer cartridge’, which means that it needs to be inhaled. However, when we ran a keyword search, we found that Pfizer vaccine has to be taken as a shot in the muscle of the upper arm.
We also noticed the label read ‘Made in China’, but, as per the press release on Pfizer’s website, the vaccine has been developed by Pfizer and BioNTech using their manufacturing network in Germany, Belgium and the United States.
Moreover, as per news wire Reuters, in an emailed statement, Pfizer confirmed that the ‘vaporizer cartridge’ news was fake.
Hence, based on the above facts, it is clear that the picture in circulation is fake.
