Truth : Christine McVie Did Not Die Suddenly From Vaccine!
It’s now 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!
Fact #1 : Christine McVie Died After A Short Illness
Christine Anne McVie (born Christine Ann Perfect on July 12, 1943) passed away on Wednesday morning, November 30, 2022, after a short illness.
At that time, her family did not specify the illness, but said that she died peacefully in a hospital accompanied by her family:
On behalf of Christine McVie’s family, it is with a heavy heart we are informing you of Christine’s death. She passed away peacefully at hospital this morning, Wednesday, November 30th 2022, following a short illness. She was in the company of her family.
We kindly ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this extremely painful time, and we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally. RIP Christine McVie.
Stevie Nicks also confirmed that Christine McVie died from an illness in her handwritten tribute to her bandmate and best friend:
A few hours ago I was told that my best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975 had passed away.
I didn’t even know she was ill … until late Saturday night. I wanted to be in London; I wanted to get to London — but we were told to wait.
So, since Saturday, one song has been swirling around my head, over and over and over. I thought I might possibly get to sing it to her, and so, I’m singing it to her now.
I always knew I would need these words one day. It’s all I can do now.
Fact #2 : Christine McVie Died From Stroke + Cancer!
On 4 April 2023, Blast obtained Christine McVie’s certified death certificate, which revealed her autopsy results. According to the medical examiner, Christine McVie died from multiple causes :
- an ischaemic stroke with bilateral renal infarction, a large atrial thrombus, and atrial fibrillation
- metastatic malignancy of unknown primary origin
In other words, Christine McVie had been suffering from an unknown cancer that already spread to other parts of her body.
But she ultimately died from an ischaemic stroke – a common type of stroke the occurs when a clot cuts off blood flow to the brain.
The medical examiner also found that both her kidneys had reduced blood flow likely from blood clots, as she was also found to have a large blood clot (thrombus) in one of her upper heart chambers.
Needless to say, anti-vaccination activists will claim that the blood clots must have been caused by the COVID-19 vaccines. That’s nonsense.
The death certificate also show that Christine McVie suffered from atrial fibrillation, which increases the risk of blood clots forming. These blood clots can move into the lower chambers (ventricles) and get pumped into the rest of the body.
This death certificate conclusively confirms that Christine McVie died from natural causes, and not from any COVID-19 vaccine side effect. She was cremated after her death.

Fact #3 : Christine McVie Was In Poor Health
Christine McVie was also in poor health before her death at the age of 79. She disclosed to Rolling Stone magazine in June 2022, that she was in “quite bad health”, with a debilitating back problem.
I don’t feel physically up for it. I’m in quite bad health. I’ve got a chronic back problem, which debilitates me. I stand up to play the piano, so I don’t know if I could actually physically do it. What’s that saying? The mind is willing, but the flesh is weak.
While she did not reveal the back problem she was suffering from, media sources said that it was scoliosis – a sideways curvature of the spine.
While scoliosis itself cannot cause someone to die, it can be debilitating if it’s associated with disc herniation and/or spinal stenosis.
That could lead to a dramatic loss of mobility, which could then lead to other more severe consequences like DVT, that may lead to life-threatening pulmonary embolism, or even stroke in some cases.
Fact #4 : Christine McVie Had Long History Of Drug Use
Christine McVie led a hard and fast life when she was younger, partying hard and partaking in hard drugs in the 1970s and 1980s.
My drug of choice was cocaine and champagne. I didn’t use any other drugs at all. It’s easy for me to say, but I think it made me perform better.
She almost suffered a heart attack after staying up for three days while taking the white powder (cocaine), “liberally washed down by Dom Pérignon”, which was when she decided to quit drugs.
However, McVie continued to drink and smoke until 2004, when she announced she quit drinking and smoking:
I don’t drink. I gave up smoking three months ago, so I chew nicotine gum. I don’t do anything now. I’m really boring.
I have flirted with not smoking for a few years now and I am going to crack it this time. It is the hardest drug of all. I did quit for five years once. Then my second marriage broke down, so I started again immediately. You can’t stop trying.

Fact #5 : Unknown If Christine McVie Was Vaccinated
It is currently unknown if Christine McVie was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that she died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.
For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated! After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom, and many people like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley and Stephan Bonnar who “died suddenly” were never vaccinated.
Christine McVie also has a fear of flying, which was the reason why she left Fleetwood Mac in 1998. She also developed agoraphobia after that, and moved from California to Kent in southeast England.
So any claims that she would have been required to get vaccinated to tour with Fleetwood Mac are false.
Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Christine McVie was vaccinated, she would have been vaccinated almost 2 years ago.
She cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not many months later.
Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.
Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.
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 #7 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Causes Of Death
COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s a heart attack, SADS or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will die from other causes of death.
It is therefore ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame all deaths of fully-vaccinated people on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.
Fact #8 : 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.
