Claim : Foo Fighters Drummer Taylor Hawkins Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!
Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkins, was found dead in his hotel room in Bogota, Colombia on 25 March 2022.
Almost immediately after the news broke, people started claiming that he died from his COVID-19 vaccine. Here are a few examples…
Truth : Foo Fighters Drummer Taylor Hawkins Did NOT Die From Vaccine!
It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths on the COVID-19 vaccine.
And yet again, they are wrong – Taylor Hawkins did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Hawkins Complained Of Chest Pain Before Death
Hawkins actually called the hotel front desk for help, complaining of “chest pain”, and hotel staff immediately called emergency services while a private doctor tried to revive him.
Unfortunately, he did not respond, and was pronounced dead when emergency services arrived. The Bogota City Health Department issued a statement mentioning that :
Fact #2 : Hawkins Had 10 Different Drugs In His System
After Hawkins died, his body was taken by the Colombian authorities for an autopsy, and a urine test found 10 different kinds of drugs in his system.
The Colombia Attorney General’s Office issued this statement on the initial autopsy findings :
Fact #3 : Autopsy Found An Enlarged Heart
The initial autopsy report also stated that his heart weighed “at least 600 grams” – twice the average for a man his age.
This finding of cardiomegaly (enlarged heart) suggests that he had a longstanding heart condition like heart failure, or cardiomyopathy.
Investigators have apparently concluded that he suffered a “sudden cardiac arrest” with a “cardiovascular collapse”, after overdosing on heroin, antidepressants and benzodiazepines.
Fact #4 : Hawkins Discovered Enlarged Heart In 2021
Interestingly, Hawkins himself may have discovered that he had an enlarged heart (cardiomegaly) in 2021.
On 15 June 2021, he did a Rolling Stone interview with Brian Hiatt, where he revealed that his doctor recently told him that he had a “big heart”.
Fact #5 : His Cardiomegaly May Be Due To Sleep Apnea
In the same Rolling Stone interview, Hawkins also revealed an interesting detail that many people missed – he was likely suffering from sleep apnea.
Untreated sleep apnea increases cardiovascular stress, which elevates blood pressure and forces the heart to work harder. This can result in an enlarged heart (cardiomegaly) over time.

Fact #6 : Hawkins Almost Died From Drug Overdose In 2001
Hawkins had a long history of drug use, and almost died from a heroin overdose in 2001. He recounted the incident in 2018 :
Tragically, it appears that Hawkins overdosed again, but was not able to recover this time, due to his existing heart condition.
Fact #7 : COVID-19 Vaccine Does Not Cause Cardiomegaly
Just to be clear – it is not possible for any COVID-19 vaccine to cause cardiomegaly.
Not only has there been no reported case of vaccine-induced cardiomegaly, it takes time for the heart to enlarge to such proportions.
In case you are wondering, vaccine-induced myocarditis (a rare risk factor for mRNA vaccines) cannot cause the heart to enlarge to such a large size in a matter of days.
For certain, his COVID-19 vaccination played no role in his death.
