Meat Loaf, ‘Bat Out of Hell’ Singer and Prolific Actor, Dies at 74

Does anyone else feel too many people are dying all of a sudden? And maybe the vaccine & booster is why?

To make those claims more credible, they often include a link to an article about Meat Loaf’s death.


No Evidence Meat Loaf Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by antivaxxers to scare people from protecting themselves with the COVID-19 vaccines.

The truth is – like Betty White and Bob Saget, there is NO EVIDENCE that Meat Loaf died from the COVID-19 booster dose, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Meat Loaf Died From COVID-19 Vaccine

While antivaxxers are claiming that Meat Loaf died from the COVID-19 vaccine, they offer absolutely NO EVIDENCE for their claim.

The articles they shared as “evidence” do not mention that Meat Loaf died from the COVID-19 vaccine, only that he died with his wife and two daughters by his side on Thursday, 20 January 2022.

They only added those article links to mislead you into thinking that they are evidence that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

After all, most people don’t bother to click on the links to actually read the articles. That’s the same reason some people believe that Bob Saget and Betty White died from the COVID-19 booster dose

Fact #2 : Meat Loaf Was Against Vaccines + Face Masks

Ironically, these antivaxxers are not aware that Meat Loaf was apparently anti-vaccination himself! Or maybe they just didn’t care…

He was outspoken about his disdain for COVID-19 vaccines, and shared Stand & Deliver – the anti-lockdown song by Van Morrison and Eric Clapton.

He even called a flight attendant a “Nazi” for requiring him to wear a mask on a flight, and said, “If I die, I did, but I’m not going to be controlled.

Meat Loaf refused to disclose whether he was vaccinated or not, like Aaron Rodgers (initially).

On 7 January 2022, his daughter Pearl Aday posted on Instagram that a number of her “friends and family” tested positive for COVID-19 but they were “doing ok“.

She also said, “Thank their respect for science that they’re all vaxxed, otherwise they’d be way worse.

It is unknown if she was referring to her own father, but based on his rhetoric, it seems highly improbable that he would be fully-vaccinated, with a booster dose on top of that.

Fact #3 : Meat Loaf Died From COVID-19

According to TMZ, Meat Loaf cancelled a business dinner for a show he was working on – I’d Do Anything For Love, because he became seriously ill with COVID-19. His condition quickly became critical, and he died on 20 January 2022.

His official cause of death has yet to be announced, but all sources point so far to death from COVID-19, not a vaccine booster dose.

Fact #4 : Meat Loaf Died Quickly From COVID-19

The speed of how his COVID-19 infection progressed and turned critical suggests that he was not even vaccinated.

While vaccinated people can die from COVID-19, their risk of dying from COVID-19 is greatly reduced by the COVID-19 vaccine, and the booster dose.

As this chart shows, the vast majority of those who died from COVID-19 in the United States were unvaccinated.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Booster Dose Proven Safe + Effective

The COVID-19 booster dose is nothing more than a third dose of existing COVID-19 vaccines – all of which have undergone not only massive clinical trials, but also post-approval monitoring.

They have been proven to be safe and effective time and time again, and the booster dose is no different.

If Meat Loaf actually received a booster dose, that would mean he was earlier fully-vaccinated with two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, and did not suffer any adverse effect.

Therefore, it is highly unlikely that he would suddenly suffer an adverse effect from a booster dose.

The facts currently show that Meat Loaf did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Just look at how antivaxxers claimed that Betty White died from the booster dose, only for her death certificate to reveal that she died from a stroke!

Did they apologise? Correct themselves? Nope. They just moved on to the next celebrity death.
