Al Roker has been in and out of hospitals with blood clots, which people are blaming on the COVID-19 vaccine!
Take a look at the viral claims, and find out why his blood clots are not from vaccine TTS!
Claim : Al Roker Got His Blood Clots From Vaccine TTS!
People are claiming that Al Roker got his blood clots from vaccine-induced thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), after he was admitted to the hospital for blood clots again, right after being discharged!
Truth : Al Roker Did Not Get His Blood Clots From Vaccine TTS!
It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses 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 : Al Roker Was Admitted For DVT + Pulmonary Embolism
Al Roker was admitted to the hospital sometime in the middle of November 2022, with pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs) from a blood clot in his leg (deep vein thrombosis).
He announced this on Instagram on November 18, 2022:
Fact #2 : Al Roker Was Discharged On Thanksgiving Day
Al Roker was discharged from the hospital on Thanksgiving Day – Thursday, November 24, 2022.
Fact #3 : Al Roker Was Rushed Back To The Hospital A Day Later
Al Roker’s condition took a turn for the worse at home, and he was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance on Friday, November 25, 2022.
Fortunately, his condition improved once he got treated at the hospital:
Today co-anchor Hoda Kotb confirmed that Al Roker was recovering at the hospital on Thursday, December 1, 2022.
Fact #4 : Al Roker Received The Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine
Al Roker received the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on January 19, 2021 live on the Today show.
His second dose was about 21 days later, which means Al Roker was fully vaccinated by the middle of February 2021.

Fact #5 : Pfizer Vaccine Does Not Cause TTS
In January and February 2021, only two COVID-19 vaccines were available in the United States – both mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna.
In any case – both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines do not cause a rare side effect called Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), which is also know as Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT).
Only the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine (which was never approved in the United States), and the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 vaccine (which was only approved on February 27. 2021) can potentially cause the TTS / VITT side effect.
Because Al Roker received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, his blood clots could not be due to his vaccinations 21 months earlier.
Fact #6 : Vaccine TTS Is Different From DVT
Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia (TTS) is not only rare, it is very unique. People affected by TTS will develop blood clots in the large veins of the brain / abdomen / lungs, together with low platelet counts.
This unique and rare side effect is seen mostly in women younger than 50 years old, and is exceedingly rare in males older than 50 years old. Al Roker is 68 years old.
But the key thing to note is that Al Roker:
- presented a large blood clot in his leg, and not in the large veins of the brain / abdomen / lungs,
- did not have a low platelet count
Therefore, he most definitely does not suffer from TTS / VITT, even if he was vaccinated with the AZ or Janssen vaccines (he was not).
Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False
This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.
So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!
