From the link:\n\n>>>"I'm sure you've seen the pictures all over the internet of people who have had these shots and now they're magnetized," Tenpenny, of Middleburg Heights in Cuyahoga County, said. "You can put a key on their forehead, it sticks. You can put spoons and forks all over and they can stick because now we think there is a metal piece to that."<<<\n\nApparently some people will continue to trust this person for medical advice despite ridiculous and easily disproven statements such as this.\n\nVery strange.\n\n\nThere's no magnetic material that has such a strong field that it could attract something to a person's body, even if the whole needle had been left in their arm. Also, if the skinny needle had a magnet in it in solid form, it would work its way out pretty easily- if it was tiny particles, they would clump and that could be felt under the skin. \n\nI was asked if I had any questions when I was getting my first shot and I paused, then responded with "Does the needle come out shorter than it goes in?". We had a bit of a chuckle. When I walked out from behind the screen, I dragged one foot, to make the others think the shot caused it. The pharmacist just said, "Aw, man!".
