Debunked: No, the Delta variant is not caused by the vaccines
Social media users are contending that the Delta variant of COVID-19 is caused by the vaccines themselves as part of a money-making scam to create a problem and sell a solution. Mutations such as the Delta variant occur within live hosts who have contracted the virus. They result from errors made during virus replication. The mRNA vaccines do not contain the COVID-19 virus and no vaccine can replicate a virus. Reuters has debunked this claim.
