Fact-Checked: No, spike proteins produced by vaccines are not toxic _

A Canadian professor has spread a fringe theory on a radio programme stating that the COVID-19 vaccine causes the creation of spike proteins which he claims can damage internal organs. The claim that these spike proteins are harmful have been refuted by scientists as being ‘completely inaccurate’ and an attempt to spread fear about vaccine safety. In reality, these proteins are harmless. This idea has been debunked by the AP.
