A claim stating that the U.S. government has ordered syringes with RFID tracking devices ahead of vaccinations for coronavirus has gained attention online.
Natural News, a vehicle of “activist-turned-scientist” Mike Adams, according to its website, is a main source of the claim.
Breaking Israel News referenced Natural News in its report on the topic.
“Those who think the government is planning on forcing every American to inject themselves with a coronavirus vaccine may have just received an indication confirming their fears,” David Sidman of Breaking Israel News wrote in reference to a May 12 news release from the Defense Department.
The news release outlines a $138 million contract between the Department of Health and Human Services, DOD and ApiJect Systems America, a manufacturer of pre-filled syringes. The partnership will launch “Project Jumpstart” and “RAPID USA,” two efforts that will expand the production of U.S.-based injection devices, according to the DOD.
