Our readers have asked us to check claims that aluminium used in a new Covid-19 vaccine—or any other vaccine—can cause Alzheimer’s disease

No link between Alzheimer’s disease and the small amount of aluminium found in some vaccines has been established.

What is in vaccines?

In a now-deleted tweet, writer and commentator Toby Young wrongly claimed a published study found that Covid-19’s infection fatality rate (IFR) is just 0.1%

This is incorrect. Most research places the virus’s infection fatality rate at between 0.5% and 1%.

What does the data tell us?

People claimed on Twitter and Instagram that Ticketmaster is planning to make proof of Covid-19 vaccination mandatory in order to attend concerts

Not correct. Ticketmaster said there is “absolutely no requirement from Ticketmaster mandating vaccines/testing for future events”.
