Bill Gates' daughter mocks conspiracy theory after COVID-19 vaccination.

Bill Gates' oldest daughter joked on social media that her COVID-19 vaccine did not result in her "genius father" inserting a microchip into her brain.

The 24-year old medical student, Jennifer Gates, shared an Instagram post on Thursday to inform her followers that she'd received the vaccine's first dose.

In the post, Gates appeared to poke fun at conspiracy theorists who baselessly claim that her billionaire father is plotting to use the vaccine to implant people with location-tracking microchips.

"Sadly the vaccine did NOT implant my genius father into my brain," she wrote.

In June, Bill Gates told reporters that it was "almost hard to deny" the conspiracy theory about location-tracking microchips "because it's so stupid."

A month later, the co-founder of Microsoft said: "There's no connection between any of these vaccines and any tracking type thing at all. I don't know where that came from."

Despite the evidence that vaccines are actually just pieces of genetic material encased in salt, sugar, and fats, the conspiracy theory has continued to be circulated by anti-vaxxers online.
