Covid-19: Injection In Your Arm Not "Somewhere Else"

A "scientific" report claiming the Covid-19 vaccine to "administer" to the penis for faster release of the dose has gone viral. 

The International Business Times has reported that this is fake and labelled as a "work of mischief". 

Surprisingly, this type of post has fooled many people and has sparked furious discussions.

The image appears to be a screenshot of a CNN article with the headline: "Doctors encourage Covid-19 vaccine injection in penis." It is accompanied by a 'doctor' image, a real doctor, by the way, Dr Mohitkumar Ardeshana, a hormone therapy doctor from Biote Medical's Calremond Medical Center, California.

Dr Mohikumar told Boomlive that the article was a complete fake. He did not say anything about such a study.

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine must be injected intramuscularly into the deltoid muscle of the arm.

Australia's AAP FactCheck also said the image of the needle being "stabbed" into a penis is actually from "how to perform self-injection procedure to treat erectile dysfunction" from Kansas' City's Saint Luke's healthcare services.
