An article saying an Ebola vaccine contains RFID chips is fake.
The bogus report was posted on the National Report, a satirical website.
“A CDC whistleblower has recently gone on record to expose nefarious government plans which would use the impending US Ebola pandemic as an opportunity to implant RFID technology in American citizens,” it reads. “Brent Hopskins was a CDC contractor before coming forward with serious allegations against his former employer. Hopskins claims that an Ebola vaccine has been prepared for the general public in the form of disposable, one-use syringes. The downside, however, is that each of these syringes will contain not only the vaccine, but a micro RFID chip as well.”
The article had tens of thousands of shares on Saturday.
According to a disclaimer that has since been removed from its website,
It used to say: “*DISCLAIMER: National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways.

The National Report last year posted several articles about Obamacare requiring an RFID chip, which was obviously not true.
