This rumor that flu shots will generate a Covid-19 test positive response is FALSE! It’s a lie being spread by Buttar, who is an antivaxxer. (Link at end.)
If you are confused about what sources to trust, you’re not alone. I get this question on my radio show all the time.
1- Don’t trust FACEBOOK posts unless you can verify them.
2- Same for Twitter or other social media.
3- Don’t trust media reports that are outliers from the majority of media. Again, verify for yourself when in doubt. It’s not hard. It took me less than five minutes to check the “flu” lie at Snopes.com
As a rule, I like BBC.com, NBCNews.com (you don’t even have to check MSNBC, though I trust their reporting), CBSNews.com, ABCNews.com is okay, even Al-Jazeera America is a good news source overall.
When I catch news sources in lies or disinformation more than once, I stop following them. I can’t waste my time sorting their lies and distortions from facts.
I follow the saying, “You’re entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts.”
Interpretation is personal, facts are objective.
Be picky about where and from whom you get your facts.
