In support of a lawsuit brought by a conservative political organization against the Pentagon, an Army officer purported false claims about the COVID-19 vaccine – including that the vaccine has antifreeze in it.

America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), a group that has spread disinformation about vaccines and the COVID-19 pandemic, is suing the Pentagon to stop its vaccine mandate.

Lt. Col. Theresa M. Long, who serves as the brigade surgeon for the Army’s 1st Aviation Brigade, falsely wrote in an affidavit last week that the Pfizer vaccine is made of antifreeze. 

"I cannot discern what form of alchemy Pfizer and the FDA have discovered that would make antifreeze into a healthful cure to the human body," Long wrote.

The vaccines do not contain antifreeze. Long, like many vaccine skeptics and users on social media, claim the vaccines contain polyethylene glycol and that it is an active ingredient in antifreeze.

But, Ethylene glycol is actually the active ingredient in antifreeze. Polyethylene glycol is present in the COVID-19 vaccines. The ingredient is found in many commonly used products such as laxatives and pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.

As of August, 65 percent of active-duty military were fully vaccinated. The lawsuit attempts to overturn Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s order that active-duty service members are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. 

AFLDS has also pushed ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine as treatments for COVID-19. The Food and Drug Administration has not recommended either drug to treat COVID-19.
