1. UNREPRESENTATIVE SAMPLES USED. In human trials, subjects are selected that are representative of a larger population. If the sample is different from the population as a whole, then the conclusions from the trial may be biased towards a particular outcome.

2 / 15

2. COVID-19 vaccines will contain aborted human fetal tissue.

3 / 15

3. ANIMAL & CELL STUDIES (experimental). Animal research can be useful, and can predict effects also seen in humans. However, observed effects can also differ, so subsequent human trials are required before a particular effect can be said to be seen in humans. Tests on isolated cells can also produce different results to those in the body.

4 / 15

4. ANECDOTAL & EXPERT OPINIONS. Anecdotal evidence is a person’s own personal experience or view, not necessarily representative of typical experiences. An expert’s standalone opinion, or that given in a written news article, are both considered weak forms of evidence without scientific studies to back them up.

6. FOCUS ON QUALITY.ALL WEBSITES ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL. #Does the site have an editorial board? #Is information reviewed before it is posted? #Are the board members experts in the subject of the site? #Look for a description of the process for selecting or approving information on the site. It is usually in the ABOUT US section and may be called EDITORIAL POLICY, SELECTION POLICY, or REVIEW POLICY.

7. SELECTIVE REPORTING OF DATA. Also known as ‘cherry-picking’, this involves selecting data from results which support the conclusion of the research, whilst ignoring those that do not. If a research paper draws conclusions from a selection of its results, not all, it may be guilty of this.

8. VACCINATED PEOPLE STILL TRANSMIT THE INFECTION TO OTHERS. The aim of the registration studies was to assess the vaccines efficacy in protecting from the COVID-19 disease. Studies are ongoing to determine whether asymptomatically infected vaccinated people can infect others. Since it is possible that, despite protective immunity, in some cases the virus may persist in the nasal mucosa, vaccinated people and those who are in contact with them must continue to take protective measures against COVID-19.
