Claim : Mark Zuckerberg Warned FB Staff Not To Get Vaccine!
A viral video clip of Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has gone viral, together with claims that he was warning Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine!

Truth : Zuckerberg Did Not Warn FB Staff Not To Get COVID-19 Vaccine!
This is yet another example of MISINFORMATION created and/or propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : The Viral Video Is Genuine
First, let me confirm that the video is genuine, and is not a deepfake production. As fake as it appear, that was really Mark Zuckerberg speaking in that video.
However, you will note that Zuckerberg did not actually tell or warn Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Fact #2 : The Viral Video Is More Than 2.5 Years Old
One version of the viral video was edited to state that it happen in August 2021, to give the impression that Mark Zuckerberg was advising Facebook staff against getting vaccinated.
The viral video clip is not new, as people are claiming on social media. It is actually a short segment of a virtual Q&A meeting for Facebook staff that was streamed live on July 16, 2020.
The video was only publicly revealed on February 17, 2021, when Project Veritas got a copy of the livestream, and leaked a very short segment of the entire video.
In other words – the video clip is old – it was recorded more than 30 months ago, and leaked more than 23 months ago.
Fact #3 : The Viral Video Was Edited Even More
Subsequently, the video was further edited again to cut out the parts in bold, to get the condensed 24-second video clip that just went viral on 21 January 2023.
I do just want to make sure that I share some caution on this because we just don’t know the long-term side effects of basically modifying people’s DNA and RNA to directly code in a person’s DNA and RNA.
Basically the ability to produce those antibodies and whether that causes other mutations or other risks downstream. So there’s work on both paths of vaccine development.
You will note that Zuckerberg misstated how mRNA vaccines work, and pointed out that there is work bering done on other types of COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #4 : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Still In Development Then
It is impossible for Mark Zuckerberg to ask or warn Facebook staff not to get the COVID-19 vaccine, because when he made those comments, COVID-19 vaccines were still being developed.
Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone later clarified that the July 2020 discussion occurred shortly after Moderna released its initial-stage trial results for its mRNA-1273 COVID-19 vaccine candidate, which used the new, state-of-the-art messenger RNA technology.
There was very little public knowledge about mRNA technology at that time, so it is not surprising to see Mark Zuckerberg wonder about the risks of any new technology, like everyone else.
I should point out that, at that time, Moderna had not started its Phase 3 trial, which would eventually prove that the mRNA-1273 vaccine candidate would offer robust protection against hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.
After that successful Phase 3 trial, the mRNA-1273 vaccine candidate received an Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) on December 18, 2020 as the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. That was followed up with a full FDA approval on January 31, 2022, and it was henceforth marketed as Spikevax.
Fact #5 : mRNA Does Not Enter Cell Nucleus
mRNA vaccines do not enter the cell nucleus, and therefore, will not affect or interfere with the person’s DNA.
That is not my opinion, but is the official statement by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the matter.
To enter the nucleus, the mRNA vaccine would need an enzyme called integrase (which the real SARS-CoV-2 virus produces). Without this integrase enzyme, the mRNA cannot physically enter the cell nucleus and therefore, cannot change or integrate with our DNA.
Some anti-vaccination activists are referring to a Feb 2022 study by Alden et. al as “evidence”, but the truth is – the study does not show that the Pfizer vaccine (which is not the Moderna vaccine) combined with DNA in liver cells.
Fact #6 : Zuckerberg Clarified The Matter With Dr. Fauci
Mark Zuckerberg actually brought up the topic in a November 30, 2020 livestream with Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Zuckerberg : Just to clear up one point, my understanding is that these vaccines do not modify your DNA or RNA. So that’s just an important point to clarify, if I’m getting anything wrong here, of course correct me.
Dr. Fauci : No, first of all, DNA is inherent in your own nuclear cell. Sticking in anything foreign will ultimately get cleared.
Zuckerberg : I’m glad we can clear that up.
In other words, before Project Veritas even leaked the video, Mark Zuckerberg had already clarified with Dr. Anthony Fauci that mRNA vaccines cannot modify our DNA.
Fact #7 : Facebook Banned Claims mRNA Vaccines Alter DNA In 2021
We know that Mark Zuckerberg was convinced about the safety of the mRNA vaccines, and that they do not alter or change our DNA, because he banned any claim that the mRNA vaccines can change DNA on Facebook.
On February 8, 2021, Facebook updated its COVID-19 and vaccine policies to “protect people from harmful content and new types of abuse related to COVID-19 and vaccines“.
Facebook also said that it would remove posts that included “claims that the COVID-19 vaccine changes people’s DNA“.
