You have sent us a video whose protagonist is a woman who identifies herself as Chinda Brandolino, and who is giving a talk in front of the camera and with microphone in hand. She makes some arguments against covid-19 vaccination, specifically mentioning viral vector vaccines (such as those of AstraZeneca or Janssen). In her opinion, these injections “modify the genome”, making “that vaccinated person a transgenic, transhuman person”. This is FALSE. Viral vector vaccines are not capable of modifying a person’s genome.
