What does Non-GMO mean in the anti-vaxxer community?


People who are against taking the covid vaccine often refer to themselves as Non-GMO. They believe that the covid vaccines can change a person’s genetic makeup, thereby transforming those vaccinated into genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Such individuals who are against vaccination may also use terms like all-organic or pureblood to describe themselves. They use these terms in an attempt to make their stance against vaccination appear more appealing and justified.

Example for using ‘Non-GMO’ in a conversation

Hey, did you hear about the new COVID vaccine?

Yeah, I have. I’m not really into getting vaccinated.

Oh, so you’re non-GMO?

Haha, yeah, you can say that. I prefer to stay all-organic.
