Until now, there have been reports of minor headaches, slight fevers, or tiredness after receiving the COVID-19 vaccination, but a weird video that has gone viral on social media has left everyone in awe, showing a 71-year-old man claiming to have grown magnets on his arm and neck.

Arvind Sonar, a 71-year-old senior man from Nashik, claims in the video that steel objects are clinging to his hands after receiving the second dosage of the Covishield vaccine. 

Arvind Sonar lives in Nashik's CIDCO neighborhood, in Shivaji Chowk.

According to the video, coins and steel spoons became stuck to Mr. Sonar's arms like a magnetic pull. 

Look at this:

According to reports, Mr. Arvind received his second dosage of Covishield vaccine two days ago at a private facility. 

After seeing similar incidents on social media, he tried it on himself - that magnetism is formed after taking the vaccine. Iron and steel utensils, coins, and spoons were stuck to his body, he discovered.

The district health officer has stated that they will act only after conducting an investigation.

Notably, after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, people on social media have started posting videos of themselves with magnets adhered to their arms and bodies.

According to a report, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) addresses the magnetization issue specifically on its website under "Myths and Facts about COVID-19 Vaccines," writing, "receiving a COVID-19 vaccine will not make you magnetic, including at the site of vaccination, which is usually your arm."

The CDC explains that COVID-19 vaccines do not contain ingredients that can generate an electromagnetic field at the site of your injection and that all COVID-19 vaccines are free of metals such as iron, nickel, cobalt, lithium, and rare earth alloys, as well as any manufactured products such as microelectronics, electrodes, carbon nanotubes, and nanowire semiconductors.
