Warning About Fake News

There is a lot of mis-information regarding the coronavirus vaccine, which has no scientific (or even logical) basis.

At the time of writing this (21st of March), over seven million doses of the vaccine has been inoculated in the UAE. If the vaccine caused serious side effects, there would have been a crisis.

Snopes is a great fact-checking website, you can use it to check the facts behind the rumours.
