Truth : All Three Doctors Did Not Die From 2nd Booster Dose!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, to scare people from protecting themselves against COVID-19, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : No Evidence They Received 2nd Booster Dose
There is no evidence any of the three doctors received the 2nd booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Sure, the province of Ontario started recommending the 2nd booster dose (4th vaccine dose) just before the doctors died, but that is no evidence they actually got their 4th vaccine dose.
Fact #2 : Two Doctors Were On Medical Leave When They Died
Two of the three doctors were confirmed to be on medical leave for severe illness when they died.
- Dr. Lorne Segall was on long medical leave, with office closed until at least until September 2022.
- Dr. Stephen McKenzie was “seriously ill”, to the point his office was “permanently closed”.

Fact #3 : Second Booster Dose Same As Primary Vaccine
Canada offers three booster doses – from Moderna, Pfizer and Novavax (upon request).
The Pfizer and Novavax booster doses have the same dosage as the primary doses, but the Moderna vaccine is offered at half the primary dose.
The first and second booster doses are really the same vaccine as the primary series vaccine, so there is no reason for new adverse effects to develop.
If you experienced no adverse effects with the first two primary doses, there is simply no reason why you should develop new adverse effects with either the first or the second booster doses, if they are of the same vaccine.
Fact #4 : 2nd Booster Dose Was Not Mandatory In Ontario
The Ontario government only recommended the 4th vaccine dose (2nd booster dose) for specific groups :
- individuals aged 60 and over
- First Nation, Inuit and Métis individuals or a non-Indigenous household member aged 18 and over
- residents of long-term care homes / retirement homes / Elder Care Lodge, or older adult living in other congregate settings providing assisted living / health services
- moderately to severely-immunocompromised individuals
None of the three doctors who died were in those recommended groups.

Fact #5 : Dr. Lorne Segall Died Of Lung Cancer
Dr. Lorne E. Segall died after “a ridiculously unfair and hard fought year-long battle with advanced lung cancer“, according to his family.
So he most definitely did not die from getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
Fact #6 : Dr. Stephen McKenzie Was Seriously Ill
According to his office, Dr. Stephen W. McKenzie had been “seriously ill” leading up to his death.
Although the nature of his illness was not disclosed, his office had earlier been permanently closed, so it must have happened earlier and is thus unrelated to the 2nd booster dose.
Fact #7 : Dr. Jakub Sawicki Died From Stomach Cancer
According to his wife, Iris Sawicki, Dr. Jakub Sawicki was diagnosed with Stage 4 gastric cancer in August 2021 – just two weeks after the birth of their son, John-Paul.
Specifically, Dr. Jakub Sawicki had signet ring cell adenocarcinoma (SRCC) – a rare and very aggressive form of stomach cancer. He most certainly did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine.
Fact #8 : Trillium Confirmed Doctor Deaths Unrelated To Vaccine
Trillium Health Partners confirmed that none of their doctors died from the COVID-19 vaccine in a statement on Wednesday, 27 July 2022.
The rumour circulating on social media is simply not true. Their passings were not related to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Fact #9 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven
Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT 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 #10 : 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!
