The Claim

Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar’s investigation found that despite its name and claims on social media, Luciferase has nothing to do with Lucifer. Luciferase is an enzyme that produces bioluminescence, such as is found in fireflies. It is used to study vaccines because of its natural ability to produce light. However, while it is used to study vaccines, it is not in any of the COVID-19 vaccines

Digital tattoos, or quantum-dot tags, are currently being developed at M.I.T. and Rice University. These inject a pattern of tags below the skin so that people carry their immunization record with them. While this research is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, it is not currently being used. If/when it is deployed in vaccines, it will legally have to be declared publicly. 

Since there is no Luciferase in the COVID-19 vaccines, and since the vaccines do not currently contain a digital tattoo, we rate this claim as false.
