Vaccine Holdouts Are Finally Caving to Mandates, But Then Immediately Try to ‘Undo’ Any Effects

In the anti-vaccine movement, caving into the Biden administration’s mandates is a sign that someone has given up and given in to what they see as the government’s overreach. Even with the historical precedents of the polio vaccine mandates and others, there is still remaining resistance to all of the available and approved vaccines. However, those who are in jeopardy of losing their jobs due to the mandates are now reluctantly giving in, but also then immediately seeking a way to rid their bodies of the vaccine. And the methods can have far worse results than a sore arm at an inoculation site.

NBC News reports on a viral TikTok video that has garnered hundreds of thousands of views featuring Dr. Carrie Madej, who outlines the ingredients for a bath she said will “detox the vaxx” for people who have given into Covid-19 vaccine mandates. Madej is neither an M.D. nor an epidemiologist, and the ingredients in the bath are mostly not harmful, although the supposed benefits attached to them are entirely fictional. Baking soda and Epsom salts, she falsely claims, will provide a “radiation detox” to remove radiation Madej erroneously believes is “activated” by the vaccine. Bentonite clay will add a “major pull of poison,” she says, based on a mistaken idea in anti-vaccine communities that toxins can be removed from the body with certain therapies.

Then, she recommends adding in one cup of borax, a cleaning agent that’s been banned as a food additive by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to “take nanotechnologies out of you.” In reality, in addition to being potentially harmful as a skin and eye irritant, a borax “detox bath” will not remove the effects of the Covid vaccine from your body.


Detox remedies and regimens have been staples of the anti-vaccine movement for years. Long before Covid, anti-vaccine influencers and alternative health entrepreneurs promoted unproven and sometimes dangerous treatments they claimed would rid children of the alleged toxins that lingered after routine childhood immunizations.

But the overly-politized COVID-19 pandemic gave rise to a new kind of group of “believers”. Some anti-vaccine groups are recommending that people who have been vaccinated should immediately self-administer cupping therapy (an ancient form of alternative medicine that involves creating suction on the skin) to speed up the “removal of the vax content” including first making small incisions on the injection site with a razor. Other memes give instructions on how to “un-inject” shots using syringes. Both methods are potentially dangerous and would not remove the vaccine once it is administered.


The anti-vax movement has gotten more dangerous the longer the world remains in the grip of the Coronavirus. A car drove into a protest on the Golden Gate Bridge Thursday night, although no one was seriously injured. Read NBC’s full analysis here.
