At the Ohio Statehouse, Republican lawmakers gave the microphone to a known conspiracy theorist nurse who has spread misinformation about Covid-19 vaccines, claiming that it makes humans "magnetic."

Registered nurse Joanna Overholt tried to prove that Covid-19 vaccines contain “magnetic vaccine crystals” but failed in a comic way on Wednesday, June 9, in Ohio’s state capitol. Sharing her video, journalist Tyler Buchanan said, "Wow. An anti-vaccine nurse in Ohio tried to prove the Vaccines Cause Magnetism theory in a state legislative committee. The demonstration did not go to plan"

Overholt questioned the lawmakers to explain why a key stuck her to her body, before jabbing it into her chest. She then tried to stick the key to her neck but failed several times. Overholt isn't the only medical professional spreading false vaccine theories at the hearing. After Overholt's failed proof, physician and anti-vaxxer Dr Sherri Tenpenny took the stand to defend Overholt's case as she talked about people who have "long suspected there was some sort of interface 'yet to be defined' between what's being injected in these shots and all of the 5G towers."

Tenpenny spoke about the same magnetic conspiracy that has been widely mocked. The Centers for Disease Control even addressed the theory. “All COVID-19 vaccines are free from metals such as iron, nickel, cobalt, lithium, and rare earth alloys, as well as any manufactured products such as microelectronics, electrodes, carbon nanotubes, and nanowire semiconductors,” read the CDC bulletin. “In addition, the typical dose for a Covid-19 vaccine is less than a milliliter, which is not enough to allow magnets to be attracted to your vaccination site even if the vaccine was filled with a magnetic metal.”

Sharing a video of Tenpenny, Buchanan earlier stated, "Testimony going off the rails now. Tenpenny is claiming there is metal in the vaccine that causes forks to stick to your forehead. She saw videos of it on the internet, you see Also promoting the 5G cell phone network vaccine theory. This is the anti-vaccine 'expert witness'."


As soon as Overholt claims made their way to social media, people mocked her and made fun of her statements. One Internet user said, "What’s wild is that being a nurse is insanely difficult and this woman was at one point smart enough to get through nursing school, etc." Writer Eric Stangle shared a funny picture of him with a bunch of keys on his head and said, "Um, “Dr.” Fauci, can you explain why after I got my vaccine, I’m magnetic?"



Another one said, "When you think Magneto is trending because of Loki but it turns out to be because Vaccines cause you to become magnetic:" Actor Ralph Garman hilariously wrote, "I got the COVID vaccine, and I am not the least bit magnetic. This is some bulls*it and I want a refund."



Sharing Overholt's clip, another one said, "We should show this clip to aliens who invade our planet. Prove to them we're the dumbest species in the solar system." Making fun of Overholt's theory, another one said, "My fridge magnets are sticking to me because I’ve been magnetized by my COVID vaccination. Maybe if the Forest Service changes the course of the moon’s orbit, it will reverse the magnetic field and I can drink my hydroxychloroquine without interference."
