Theres an amazing array of anti-vax sentiment out there, ranging from Trump Republicans who think COVID-19 is a hoax, to conspiratorial wellness advisers who disapprove of putting chemicals in your body. And lets not forget the people who think the vaccine will make your body magnetic. This week on Twitter, a Kundalini yogi sparked debate with a particularly bizarre complaint about vaccination: It supposedly gives her clients a new (and negative) energetic imprint.

With almost 44,000 Twitter followers, Philadelphia yogi Godis Oy posts prolifically about spirituality, wellness, and the alleged perils of vaccination. One particular tweet caught peoples attention because she suggested that she might stop accepting vaccinated clients.

This comment quickly drew mockery and ire from others on Twitter, including comments like, the black community is dying in droves and this girl talking bout energy lmfao, and, yall are not spiritual or healers yall are unemployed and stupid.

Is this only for the COVID vaccine? wondered one commenter. Other vaccines we got since birth pass the vibe check?

However, some people did agree with the yogis position, including one response saying, Do you also see how theres less light in their eyes? Theres a real subsection of the wellness community that believes vaccination has a negative spiritual impact.

Other commenters theorized that people get angrier after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, or begin to emit an unpleasant energy frequency. The original poster Godis Oy also chimed in with the popular conspiracy theory that vaccinated people shed antibodies, suggesting that they can spread the supposedly negative symptoms of vaccination like a disease. (Theres no scientific basis for this idea.)

Unfortunately, this isnt the first time that someone tried to block vaccinated people from a business. An Australian hairdresser made headlines last month by putting a sign in his shop window reading, Do not enter if you have been Covid-19 vaxxed. It was an intentional statement against other businesses that ban unvaccinated customers, echoing the continual conflicts over mask usage. In reality, vaccination is very effective against the more dangerous symptoms of COVID-19, drastically reducing the risk of hospitalization or death.
