Claim : Adam Zimmer Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!
Right after news broke that 38 year-old Adam Zimmer died unexpectedly, anti-vaccination activists immediately claim that the Bengals offensive analyst died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!
No Evidence Adam Zimmer Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!
It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.
Fact #1 : Adam Zimmer Was Found Dead With An Eye Injury
Adam Zimmer (born January 13, 1984) started working with the Cincinnati Bengals as their offensive analyst in July 2022, working remotely from his Minnesota home.
At 1:13 PM on Monday, October 31, the Mendota Heights Police Department were called to conduct a welfare check at his house in the 2500 block of Condon Court, after someone reported that he “had passed out from drinking“.
Based on a search warrant affidavit filed at the Dakota County District Court last week, officers found Adam Zimmer seated on a couch, and he “appeared to have bruising or blood pooling around his eye“, suggesting he may have been punched in the eye.
A woman was there when the police arrived, although the court filing did not identify her, or explain her relationship to Adam Zimmer, if any.
The police department said that “there are no signs of foul play“, and that there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death. Police captain Wayne Wegener said that his office was “not investigating this as a suspicious death“.
According to the inventory receipt tied to the court filing, the police only took an iPhone, presumably belonging to Adam Zimmer.
Fact #2 : Adam Zimmer’s Cause Of Death Is Currently Unknown
Adam Zimmer’s body was sent to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office, where the coroner will conduct an autopsy to determine his cause and manner of death.
The coroner completed the autopsy but has not released the results. Adam Zimmer’s body was released to his family, and his funeral was scheduled for 11 AM on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 at the Good Shepherd Catholic Community Church in Colleyville.
Until the autopsy results are known, anyone who claims that Adam Zimmer died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.
There is no evidence that the COVID-19 vaccines had any part in his death. But the court filing suggested that alcohol had a part to play in his death.
Fact #3 : Adam Zimmer Was Likely Vaccinated
Anti-vaccination activists are pointing to the fact that his father, Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is very public about his support for COVID-19 vaccination as “evidence” that Adam must be fully-vaccinated too.
While that is certainly a possibility, there is no evidence that Adam Zimmer was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it is wrong for anyone to claim that she died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.
Earlier I wrote that there is no vaccine mandate in the NFL, and that Mike Zimmer kept expressing his frustration that some of his players refuse to get vaccinated. If the head coach cannot even get the players over which he has so much power to get the vaccine, he cannot force his own son to get vaccinated if he didn’t want to.
However, Steven Cass just pointed out that the NFL requires coaches to get vaccinated against COVID-19. He is correct – the NFL required coaches, front-office staff and team personnel to receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster by December 27, 2021.
That said, the NFL vaccine mandate offers exemptions to those who are not eligible to be vaccinated (by CDC definition), and those who contracted COVID-19 in the last 90 days.
Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Adam Zimmer was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses more than 10 months ago.
He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.
Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.
The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.
Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.
Fact #5 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven
Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) from Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines happens within minutes. That’s why people are asked to wait for 15-30 minutes after getting the vaccine. People who get an anaphylactic shock will require an epinephrine shot to quickly relieve it.
Vaccine-induced myocarditis has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis, so a pathologist will be able to determine if the myocarditis was caused by the vaccines or otherwise.
Vaccine-induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) is very specific to the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. It is also easily differentiated by its unique combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.
Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective
COVID-19 vaccines underwent massive clinical trials, and were only approved after they were proven to be safe and effective.
In addition, they were constantly monitored after they received their approvals, which picked up rare side effects after they were administered to billions of people.
Anti-vaccination activists have often claimed that those who received the vaccine would die. Yet, the opposite was true – the vaccines are not only safe, they are effective in protecting people from getting hospitalised or dying from COVID-19.
Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!
Fact #7 : Claims Of Athletes Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False
This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.
So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.
