With more than 35% of the U.S. population fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as of May 14, new claims have been circulating across social media that the vaccine may contain metallic or traceable properties, proven when a magnet sticks at the injection site.

The so-called "COVID magnet challenge" claims to show the small magnets sticking to the arm around the site where the vaccine was administered, but not on the arm that was not stuck with a needle.
