Are COVID Vaccines Being Administered Incorrectly?

COVID-19 Vaccines are Administered Incorrectly

On the latest episode of “The Jimmy Dore Show,” comedian and political commentator Jimmy Dore questioned whether COVID-19 vaccines are being administered incorrectly. Vaccine expert John Campbell, Ph.D. says that when COVID vaccines are injected into a blood vessel, rather than a muscle, it can cause serious heart problems.


Campbell is a professor of nursing in the United Kingdom, described by German and British media as an expert in vaccine administration.

“Basically, most people in the U.S. and the U.K. are administering COVID-19 vaccines incorrectly,” Campbell said.

Campbell explained that when administering the COVID vaccine, “an injection intended to be given intramuscularly,” nurses fail to determine whether the needle is in a muscle or a blood vessel.

“Injecting the vaccine into a blood vessel, or intravenously, can cause serious heart problems,” Campbell said.

“Is he making this up off the top of his head?” the presenter asked viewers. “No, he’s getting it from a peer-reviewed study that says exactly that.”

Campbell cited a peer-reviewed study published in Oxford’s Clinical Infectious Diseases Journal in August 2021, which showed that “inadvertent intravenous injection of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines can induce myopericarditis.”



Campbell said:

“This paper is peer-reviewed and was published under the auspices of the Infectious Diseases Society of America and Oxford University, so the fact that we are still injecting people with COVID-19 vaccines without verifying whether we are administering them intravenously and dangerously is a disgrace.”

Campbell said U.S. and U.K. regulators “have not followed the science on this” by no longer recommending checking whether the syringe is incorrectly inside a blood vessel during injections.

The Oxford Study also criticized regulatory agencies, stating, “The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) no longer recommend aspirating the syringe plunger during intramuscular injections.”

“These are the official government agencies that control vaccination and they tell health care professionals almost explicitly … don’t vaccinate correctly, don’t administer vaccines safely,” Campbell said.

While Campbell and the Oxford study highlight mRNA vaccines in particular, a study by the University of Germany and the German Center for Cardiovascular Research showed that improper administration of adenovector COVID vaccines into blood vessels rather than muscles can result in dangerous blood clots.

Adenovector vaccines include both Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca vaccines.

Both scientific papers recommend ensuring that vaccines are not administered into blood vessels by first aspirating the syringe to see if blood is drawn.


The Oxford paper states:

“Brief removal of the syringe plunger to exclude aspiration of blood may be one possible way to reduce that risk.” The German study states that “safe intramuscular injection, with aspiration before injection, could be a possible preventive measure.”

The CDC and WHO advise against such protective measures to “minimize pain” after injection, a recommendation Campbell said is “completely and utterly incorrect.”


Commenting on Campbell’s allegations, Lyn Redwood, RN, MSN, director and president emeritus of Children’s Health Defense , said:

“Vaccine manufacturers clearly state in the package inserts that vaccines should only be administered into the muscle. This recommendation alone should ensure that every dose administered includes aspiration prior to injection of the vaccine to ensure that the vaccine is not in a vein, given the potential for such tragic and potentially fatal outcomes.”
