Anti-Vax Nurse Tries To ‘Prove’ That Covid Vaccines Make People Magnetic, Fails Spectacularly

Do you ever go on the internet and think to yourself, “How is this piece of news real? And when did I end up in one of the weirder timelines in the multiverse?” Well, that was exactly my reaction when I saw the ‘news’ about an anti-vax nurse who tried to prove to the Ohio House health committee meeting that Covid-19 vaccines magnetized her body.

You’d think that someone who firmly believes in a conspiracy theory would at least have (what they consider to be) solid ‘proof.’ Alas! Even that seems to be setting the bar too high. Registered nurse Joanna Overholt tried to ‘prove’ that her body was magnetized by sticking a key and a bobby pin to herself… only they fell off.

It was obvious that the nurse applied pressure when putting both on. Let’s also not forget that most modern keys aren’t even magnetic and that our bodies are slightly sticky naturally. The video is priceless (and be sure to watch the reactions of the people behind the nurse). Many internet users thought so, too, sharing their thoughts about the tragicomic circus performance without any reservations. Check out what some of them had to say below.

“Explain to me why the key sticks to me. It sticks to my neck, too. So, yeah, if somebody could explain this, that would be great,” nurse Overholt said, as the nonmagnetic key fell off her neck once she stopped applying pressure to it. The anti-vaxxer believed she proved her point, however, her display backfired.

The nurse’s testimony was conducted in support of one of the biggest Covid-19 vaccine misinformation ‘super-spreaders,’ Ohio-based osteopathic physician Dr. Sherri Tenpenny. Her claims that vaccines magnetize people’s bodies are completely baseless.

Here’s how it all went down!

Wow. An anti-vaccine nurse in Ohio tried to prove the Vaccines Cause Magnetism theory in an state legislative committee. The demonstration did not go to plan

Testimony going off the rails now.

Tenpenny is claiming there is metal in the vaccine that causes forks to stick to your forehead. She saw videos of it on the internet, you see

Also promoting the 5G cell phone network vaccine theory. This is the anti-vaccine “expert witness”

“Public trust in science and evidence is essential for overcoming COVID-19,” Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the WHO Director-General, explained. “Therefore, finding solutions to the infodemic is as vital for saving lives from COVID-19 as public health measures, like mask-wearing and hand hygiene, to equitable access to vaccines, treatments, and diagnostics.”

The more people get vaccinated, the greater the chance of finally getting the pandemic under control. And the results speak for themselves. For instance, very recently in the UK, where roughly three-quarters of adults have received the first dose of their Covid vaccines, there were zero daily Covid deaths for the first time since March 2020.

Here’s how people reacted to the ridiculous display that made some of us lose a bit of our remaining faith in humanity
