Chinese social media users have shared a screenshot of a year-old article from a US conspiracy site that falsely claims the Supreme Court ruled "the Covid pathogen is not a vaccine and is unsafe" and has cancelled "universal vax". As of March 13, 2023, AFP has found no similar or related cases in the US Supreme Court docket. The United States has not made Covid-19 vaccination mandatory at a federal level for all people. The Covid-19 vaccines available in the US do not contain live viruses and are safe, experts say.
