Another man hailing from Kolhapur's Shirol claimed to have developed magnetic powers after taking dose of COVID vaccine. In a video, Sahadeva Kumbhar of Kolhapur has claimed that steel objects are sticking to his hands after taking a dose of Covid-19 vaccine.

Going by the video, it can be seen that coins, steel spoons are getting stuck to the arms of Mr Kumbhar like a magnetic pull. Take a look:

Earlier a 71-year-old man from Nashik had reported developed magnetism after taking second dose of Covishield vaccine. Arvind Sonar, a 71-year-old senior citizen of Nashik, has claimed that steel objects are sticking to his hands after taking the second dose of Covishield vaccine. Arvind Sonar lives in Shivaji Chowk in CIDCO area of Nashik.

However, according to a report, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) specifically addresses the whole magnetization thing on its website under "Myths and Facts about COVID-19 Vaccines," writing, "receiving a COVID-19 vaccine will not make you magnetic, including at the site of vaccination, which is usually your arm."

COVID-19 vaccines do not contain ingredients that can produce an electromagnetic field at the site of your injection, the CDC explains, noting that all COVID-19 vaccines are free from metals like iron, nickel, cobalt, lithium, and rare earth alloys, as well as any manufactured products such as microelectronics, electrodes, carbon nanotubes, and nanowire semiconductors.
