Facebook users in Singapore and Malaysia have shared a purported Chinese-language news article about a disputed scientific paper that falsely claims mRNA Covid-19 vaccines "damage humans' natural immunity". Health experts told AFP there is no evidence to support the claim that mRNA vaccines are harmful. Immunologists, oncologists and other bioscientists said the paper contained "profound misinterpretations of topics and conclusions about the negative impact" of vaccination on immunity.
