Did Bronny James Almost Die From COVID Vaccine?!

Did Bronny James – LeBron James’ son, almost die from a cardiac arrest caused by the COVID-19 vaccine?! Find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-08-27 : Added his heart defect diagnosis, and other updates
Originally posted @ 2023-07-27

 

Claim : Bronny James Almost Died From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

Right after news broke that Bronny James collapsed from a cardiac arrest during basketball practice with his team, some people immediately claimed or suggested that LeBron James’ older son was suffering from myocarditis caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, or that his cardiac arrest was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Elon MuskWe cannot ascribe everything to the vaccine, but, by the same token, we cannot ascribe nothing.

Myocarditis is a known side-effect. The only question is whether it is rare or common.

William Makis MD : CARDIAC ARREST in the young – Lebron James’ 18 year old son Bronny James had a cardiac arrest during practice at 9:30am on July 24, 2023 – he was fully COVID-19 vaccinated

Some young people survive vaccine injury – 13 cases that did!

OutKick : Elon Musk is right to ask and wonder if the Covid vaccine contributed to Bronny James’ cardiac arrest.

We need to know why this keeps happening to young healthy adults.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Bronny James Almost Died From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Bronny James Suffered Cardiac Arrest During Practice

Born LeBron Raymone James Jr. on October 6, 2004, Bronny James is the eldest son of NBA superstar, LeBron James, and a basketball player for the University of Southern California (USC) Trojans team.

At approximately 9:26 AM PDT on Monday, July 24, 2023, Bronny James collapsed while practicing with his team at the USC Galen Center. He was rushed by ambulance to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and confirmed to have suffered from a cardiac arrest.

By the time news broke on Tuesday, July 25, Bronny James was in stable condition, and had already been released from intensive care. A spokesperson for his family said:

Yesterday while practicing Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest. Medical staff was able to treat Bronny and take him to the hospital. He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU.

We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update media when there is more information. LeBron and Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes.

When Damar Hamlin – the Buffalo Bill safety who suffered from a cardiac arrest earlier this year, learned about it, he tweeted his support and pledged to support the family through the same process:

Prayers to Bronny & The James family as well. 🙏🏽 here for you guys just like you have been for me my entire process.

Recommended : Did Olympic Swimmer Helen Smart Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #2 : Bronny James Has Congenital Heart Defect

On Friday, August 25, 2023, the James family announced in a statement, that Bronny James was found to have a congenital heart defect that likely caused his sudden cardiac arrest on the basketball court:

After a comprehensive initial evaluation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center led by Dr. Merije Chukumerije and follow-up evaluations at the Mayo Clinic led by Dr. Michael J. Ackerman and Atlantic Health/Morristown Medical Center led by Dr. Matthew W. Martinez, the probable cause of Mr. James’ sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) has been identified. 

It is an anatomically and functionally significant Congenital Heart Defect which can and will be treated.

We are very confident in Bronny’s full recovery and return to basketball in the very near future. We will continue to provide updates to media and respectfully reiterate the family’s request for privacy.

The statement did not mention the type of congenital heart defect Bronny James has, but heart defects can definitely cause sudden cardiac arrest, especially during strenuous exercise or activity.

But to be clear – Bronny James was born with the heart defect (that’s what congenital means). He did not develop it from getting the COVID-19 vaccines.

Read more : Bronny James : Cardiac Arrest From Congenital Heart Defect!

Fact #2 : Cardiac Arrest Is Common In Young Athletes

Anti-vaccination activists often claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many US states enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Read more : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

Fact #3 : No Evidence Bronny James Had Myocarditis

According to CNN, Bronny James underwent cardiac screening several months earlier, as part of testing for prospective NBA players.

The screening included a transthroracic echocardiogram, which looks at blood flow through the heart and its valves, and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG), which shows the heart’s electrical activity.

Both heart screenings came back with normal results. This rules out the possibility that Bronny James was suffering from myocarditis, as Elon Musk and other people have suggested.

In fact, it would be quite impossible for Bronny James to practice with his team if he was suffering from myocarditis, as he would be experiencing chest pain, fatigue, and breathing difficulties, another other symptoms.

Needless to say, neither Elon Musk nor the other people who suggested or hinted that Bronny James was suffering from myocarditis actually provided any evidence…

Just in case you are wondering – the ECG / EKG only captures a snapshot of his heart’s electrical activity at that point in time. Bronny James will need to undergo longer monitoring, even a stress EKG, to see if there is any abnormal electrical activity, especially during more strenuous activity.

Fact #4 : Risk Of Myocarditis Much Higher With COVID-19 Infection

According to the large SAFECOVAC study conducted in Malaysia, there is less than one in a million risk of getting myocarditis from COVID-19 vaccines!

In fact, if you take the SAFECOVAC data, and extrapolate the risk of myocarditis from people who were vaccinated three times (including booster dose) versus a COVID-19 infection, you will see this:

Look at the results! If you are worried about myocarditis, you should definitely want to AVOID getting infected with COVID-19.

Myocarditis
Risk
Per Million
People
vs
Sinovac
vs
AstraZeneca
vs
Pfizer
COVID-19 450 +300x +214x +167x
3x Pfizer 2.7 +1.8x +1.3x Baseline
3x AstraZeneca 2.1 +1.4x Baseline -0.2x
3x Sinovac 1.5 Baseline -0.3x -0.4x

No matter how you slice and dice the results, it is very clear that the risk of myocarditis is GREATEST with a single COVID-19 infection, than it is with THREE doses of the Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac vaccines.

Fact #5 : Unknown If Bronny James Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Bronny James has never publicly revealed his vaccination status, so it is unknown if he ever received the COVID-19 vaccine. After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.

In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

I can only confirm that his father, LeBron James, was fully-vaccinated as he revealed in September 2021:

I know that for me I can speak about myself. I think everyone has their own choice to do what they feel is right for themselves and their family, and things of that nature.

I know that I was very [skeptical] about it all, but after doing my research, and things of that nature, I felt like it was best suited for not only me but for my family and for my friends, and that’s why I decided to do it.

While that may suggest that his entire family was similarly vaccinated against COVID-19, he did not explicitly say so.

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Bronny James was fully-vaccinated, he would have received his vaccine doses more than a year ago!

He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not 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 VITTdevelop within days or weeks.

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 : Claims Of COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Often Proven False

Most claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next death or tragedy…

Did Caleb White Die Suddenly From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Alabama basketball star Caleb White collapse and die suddenly on-court from COVID-19 vaccine SADS?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Caleb White Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Caleb White collapsed and died suddenly during an on-court workout, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the Alabama high school basketball star died from COVID-19 vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS)!

Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH : First questions I ask as a cardiologist: brand, dose 1, 2, 3 etc, prior HCM or other known heart disease? Autopsy? C19vax myocarditis can be quickly ruled in or out. #courageousdiscourse
@ACCinTouch @American_Heart @HeartNews

Steve Kirsch : Another death of a young star basketball player. Come on folks. Have you ever seen so many cardiac events/deaths in young people before?

The common thread is that they were all vaccinated with the COVID vaccine.

Died Suddenly : Another young and healthy basketball player died Thursday afternoon. Pinson Valley High School senior Caleb White suffered a medical emergency at school.

Caleb was working out with his team when he collapsed to his death. Life-saving efforts were started at the school, and White was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Caleb White Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Caleb White Collapsed While Working Out

Caleb White was an Alabama high school basketball star, who was an all-state selection, and entering his senior year as a 3-star recruit.

On Thursday, 10 August 2023, Caleb White was working out on court at his school, when he reportedly collapsed at 1:12 PM.

First responders transported him to the St. Vincent’s East hospital in Birmingham, where he was pronounced dead at 2:23 PM, according to Jefferson County Chief Deputy Coroner Bill Yates.

Pinson Valley High School principal issued this statement:

I unfortunately have some very sad news to report tonight. One of our senior students suffered a medical emergency at school today. Life saving efforts were immediately started and first responders were called. 

Sadly, the student was later pronounced deceased after being transported to the hospital. We will have more to say in the near future. Please know counseling resources will be available for anyone who needs them in the coming days. Please keep the student’s family and our school in your prayers.

Caleb White’s grandfather, George Varnadoe Jr., offered more details about his grandson’s death:

My heart is extremely heavy. My grandson, Caleb White was working out with his team a short while ago. He collapsed on the floor, they tried resuscitating him. When that didn’t work, he was then transported to the hospital. The doctor’s [sic] couldn’t revive him. At 17, he was dead!!!!

Caleb was an honor student, very respectful, high intellect, excellent role model, phenomenal basketball player ranked 25th best point guard in his class in the nation & number 2 in the state of Alabama. RIP Caleb! I love you man!!!!

Fact #2 : Caleb White Presumably Suffered A Cardiac Arrest

George Varnadoe Jr. later said that Caleb White suffered a cardiac arrest, similar to what LeBron James’ son – Bronny James, almost died from recently.

24 hours ago, my grandson, Caleb White collapsed on the basketball court, went into cardiac arrest and all attempts to resuscitate him failed. This was similar to the illness LaBron [sic] James son experienced as he was working out.

Out family is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support but still in disbelief. Our whole family was really looking forward to his upcoming senior season and afterwards, playing for a D-1 school and then perhaps the NBA.

But ….. it wasn’t mean to be. You see, everything that happens, happens on time, because God wouldn’t allow it to happen, if it wasn’t on time. And so it was with Caleb.

We all have an appointment with God, one that you can’t reschedule. So we must stay ready, because you won’t have time to get ready. Please continue to pray for my family.

Recommended : Did Bronny James Almost Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Fact #3 : Caleb White’s Cause Of Death Is Still Unknown

Even though Caleb White was presumed to have suffered a cardiac arrest (which is a known risk factor for young athletes), his official cause of death has not been confirmed.

On Friday, 11 August 2023, an autopsy was performed on Caleb White to determine his official cause of death.

Until and unless his family, or the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office, reveals the autopsy results, or Caleb White’s official cause of death, anyone who tells you that Caleb White died from this or that cause is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : No Evidence Caleb White Has Myocarditis

There is no evidence that Caleb White was suffering from vaccine-induced myocarditis. If he had myocarditis from COVID-19 vaccines, it would have developed within days of getting the vaccination.

On top of that, he would have been experiencing symptoms of myocarditis like chest pain, shortness of breath, as well as heart palpitations or a pounding heart. It doesn’t seem likely that he would be able to play basketball without aggravating those symptoms.

Fact #5 : Cardiac Arrest Is Common In Young Athletes

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many US states enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Recommended : Young Athletes At High Risk Of Sudden Cardiac Arrest!

Fact #6 : Unknown If Caleb White Was Vaccinated

Despite claims that Caleb White was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that Caleb White ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Caleb White was unvaccinated against COVID-19. After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.

In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Caleb White was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Caleb White was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses over a year ago!

He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not 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 or weeks.

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.

Did Basketball Player Imo Essien Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Did college basketball player Imo Essien collapse from vaccine SADS, leaving his teammate in tears?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Basketball Player Imo Essien Collapsed From Vaccine SADS!

A video of college basketball player, Imo Essien, apparently collapsing during a game has gone viral, with anti-vaccination activists claiming it as evidence that he is another victim of COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

Here are some examples on social media:

Here we go again… Another game – Another medical emergency as ODU🏀player Imo Essien collapses during the 1st half

This never happened this often before these toxic mRNA injections were rolled out, NEVER!!!

Yo @NCAA It’s just never ending isn’t it ??? Potential SADS victim👀

Old Dominion Sophomore Imo Essien Collapses for “Unknown Reasons” at Yesterday’s Game vs Georgia Southern

If you don’t know anyone, you will soon #diedsuddenly #vaccines #suddenlydied #DiedSuddenlyNews #diedsuddenly #Gates #VaccineDeaths

HORROR ON THE COURT: Members of the Old Dominion men’s basketball team watched in shock on Saturday, and many held back tears, as their teammate Imo Essien suddenly collapsed. This is now happening in EVERY sport, why?🤔 Time to release the Fauci Files #Myocarditis #VaccineDeath

Recommended : Died Suddenly : Anti-Vaccination Movie Lies Exposed!

 

No Evidence Imo Essien Collapsed From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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 : Imo Essien Did Not Lose Consciousness

Despite suggestions that Imo Essien suddenly collapsed like Damar Hamlin, he did not lose consciousness at all.

Imo Essien – an Old Dominion point guard –  was on defence, when he suddenly stopped and sat down on the court, before slowly lying down on his side. He appeared to be in considerable pain.

Medical personnel from both teams rushed to attend to him. After a few moments, they helped Essien get on his feet, and he walked off the court with their help.

He never lost consciousness, and was responsive throughout the incident according to his team. In fact, he sat down on the bench for the rest of the game, and travelled back to Norfolk with his team!

Imo Essien was evaluated by the ODU Athletic Training staff along with the GA Southern medical staff. He was responsive throughout and was able to sit with the team for the duration of the game and drove home with the team.

He is in good spirits and will work with the ODU Sports Medicine Staff when they return to Norfolk.

Fact #2 : Imo Essien Will Be Examined By A Cardiologist 

Old Dominium Monarchs head coach, Jeff Jones, later revealed that Imo Essien had trouble catching his breath during the game, and was able to return to breathing normally before returning to the bench for the rest of the game.

He revealed that Essien’s vital signs were normal, and confirmed that the sophomore never lost consciousness. He also said that Imo Essien underwent a COVID-19 test after the incident, which came back negative.

He shared that Imo Essien was held out of practice with a non-COVID illness early last week, but recovered and had a “great” practice on Wednesday before the match.

Imo Essien was kept out of practice again on Monday, January 9, in order to meet with a cardiologist to undergo tests and examinations, to determine his next steps in a path to return.

Note that this does not mean that Imo Essien had a cardiac arrest like Damar Hamlin. Only the cardiologist can determine what happened that day after examining and running tests on him.

Recommended : Did Damar Hamlin Collapse From Vaccine SADS?!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Imo Essien Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims that he was “forced” to get vaccinated, it is currently unknown if Imo Essien was ever vaccinated against COVID-19.

Imo Essien is a sophomore (second year) student at the Old Dominion University, which had a vaccine mandate for students. However, that vaccine mandate was lifted on January 31, 2022.

Therefore, it is possible that Imo Essien, who would have been a freshman then, may not have been vaccinated as it was no longer a requirement.

That said, over 97% of Old Dominion students were fully-vaccinated before the mandate was lifted, with 99.7% of students staying on campus fully-vaccinated.

However, until and unless we know that Imo Essien was ever vaccinated against COVID-19, it is wrong for anyone to blame his “collapse” on the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Imo Essien was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it is impossible for the COVID-19 vaccine to cause his “collapse” as he would have received his doses at least 12 months ago!

He cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not 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 #6 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next athlete tragedy…

Did Magic Johnson Donate HIV-Infected Blood?!

Was NBA legend Magic Johnson caught donating HIV-infected blood?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Magic Johnson Donated HIV-Infected Blood!

A photo of Magic Johnson has gone viral, with many people posting it as evidence that he donated HIV-infected blood, together with outraged comments “Explain this!” and “No fucking way you are serious”

The viral photo came with this description, dated 18 August 2022, 3:39 PM :

Earlier today, NBA legend Magic Johnson donated some of his blood to the Red Cross to help underprivileged communities fight COVID-19.

Another version circulated in 2015, with this claim :

Retired NBA star, Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson, has decided to run a blood drive in conjunction with American Red Cross to support the National Awareness Month for Leukemia and Lymphoma. So far, Johnson has had a [sic] of 1,827 donors including himself and has saved about 438 patients so far.

 

Truth : Magic Johnson Did Not Donate HIV-Infected Blood!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Magic Johnson Never Donated Blood

Magic Johnson has been living with HIV for over 30 years now, after announcing that he tested positive for HIV in 1991, and retiring from the NBA.

As a HIV-positive person, he is not allowed to donate blood, and has never donated blood. He publicly announced this in a tweet on August 23, 2022 :

I’m aware of the false story circling the internet, and to be clear, I have never donated blood.

Fact #2 : Photo Is A 10 Years Old Screenshot

The viral photo is not new. Neither was it really a photo.

It was actually a screenshot from a documentary from 10 years ago – Endgame: AIDS in Black America, that was released in 2012.

Fact #3 : Photo Shows Magic Johnson Getting His Blood Taken

The screenshot was taken from a part of the documentary where Magic Johnson is shown undergoing a medical examination, which involved taking a blood sample.

It does not show him giving blood. It only shows him giving a blood sample.

Fact #4 : 2022 Fake Post Was Created By Satire Account

The 2022 version was created by a satire account on Twitter – @cocksources. Its profile states that part of its mission was “spreading narratives with misinformation (satire)“.

Unfortunately, many did not realise that it was created as satire, especially when people posted screenshots of the original post.

Fact #5 : Blood Donations Cannot Fight COVID-19

Blood donations do not help people infected with COVID-19, so the claim that Magic Johnson donated blood to help underprivileged communities fight COVID-19 is utter nonsense.

Vaccines, not blood donations, are needed to help underprivileged communities fight COVID-19.

Did 20 Year-Old Derek Gray Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did 20 year-old basketball rising star, Derek Gray, die from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Derek Gray Died From Vaccine-Induced SADS!

Right after news broke that 20 year-old basketball rising star Derek Gray collapsed during a game and died, people started claiming that his death was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

20 yo Derek Gray DEAD. When he dropped dead on the court, it ‘looked like a seizure’–(EXACTLY like SO many others who have a reaction to the jab!😡) 90% of UW athletes ARE VACCINATED.
#clotshot #suddendeath #SADS #Saveourchildren #StoptheShots !!!😡😡😡

Another dead young man , and another coverup soon to follow. They will never admit this is a result of being vaccinated with the Covid shot? College Basketball Star Derek Gray Dead at 20

No Evidence Derek Gray Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or injuries 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 : Derek Gray’s Cause Of Death Is Currently Unknown

Derek Gray collapsed during a game at a basketball camp for kids on the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus on July 24, 2022.

His coach, Pat Miller, witnessed his collapse and described it as “a cardiac episode”, although an official cause of death hasn’t been released.

He said that “extensive emergency efforts were made in the gym”, and Derek Gray was transported to MercyHealth Hospital and Trauma Center in Janesville, where he passed away.

His death was later confirmed by his team’s official Twitter account – Warhawks Athletics on July 27, 2022.

Warhawk Nation mourns the loss of Derek Gray, a student-athlete on the Warhawk men’s basketball team, who passed away unexpectedly on July 24th, 2022, playing the game he loved.

You will note that they did not mention any cause of death. Derek Gray’s cause of death is currently unknown.

That does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects”. It means – no one knows why Derek Gray died suddenly, while playing basketball.

Until an autopsy is performed and his family reveals his cause of death, anyone who claims that Derek Gray died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.

Fact #2 : Unknown If Derek Gray Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Derek Gray was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Some anti-vaccination activists are sharing screenshots of an article that shows that “About 90% of University of Wisconsin athletes are vaccinated against COVID-19“. This is misinformation, as the article referred to the UW Madison campus, not its Whitewater campus.

UW-Madison did report 90% vaccination rate amongst its athletes in September 2021, but UW-Whitewater only reported a much lower 77% vaccination rate amongst its students in November 2021.

In addition, the University of Wisconsin does not mandate vaccinations for its athletes, so Derek Gray could possibly be unvaccinated.

Fact #3 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Derek Gray was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not 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 #4 : Many Athletes Die Unexpectedly Every Year

What many of us do not realise is that many athletes die unexpectedly every year, and the number has been steadily increasing every year.

This chart from the Maron study shows a progressive rise in sudden death reports of 6% per year, from 1980 to 2006.

In fact, the number of sudden deaths in young and fit athletes more than quadrupled from 1980 to 2006!

This debunks the claim that such a rise in sudden death must be due to the COVID-19 vaccine, which obviously did not exist back then.

Read more : Did Hundreds Of Athletes Die Of COVID-19 Vaccine Effects?!

Fact #5 : 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 #6 : 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!

Fact #7 : Claims Of Athletes Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Did NBA Star Caleb Swanigan Die From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did 25 year-old former NBA star Caleb Swanigan die from the COVID-19 vaccine?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Caleb Swanigan Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Mere hours after news broke that former NBA and Purdue basketball star, Caleb Swanigan died, people started claiming that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are just a few examples of those claims circulating on social media :

🎯🎯”Funny though… I read far more stories of these deaths than of young people dying from COVID. I haven’t seen a single story on deaths of kids from COVID. Have you?”
-Steve Kirsch

Caleb Swanigan: How can a 25-year-old die from natural causes?

He died of natural causes? Like the natural causes from getting the covid vaccine? Caleb Swanigan, former Purdue standout and first-round NBA draft pick, dead at 25

Sorry but 25-year-old athletes do not die of “natural causes”. What a lie. Another vexed young person drops dead.

Vaccine coverup, Pfizer and Moderna makes billions in profit, with no liability. #swanigan #purdue #VaccineInjured #vaccinesideeffects

Read more : Did Tyler Sanders Die From COVID-19 Vaccine?!

 

No Evidence Caleb Swanigan Died From 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 : Coroner Confirmed Swanigan Died Of Natural Causes

The Allen County Coroners Office had already finished its autopsy, and confirmed to multiple media sources that Caleb Swanigan died of natural causes at the Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The coroner’s office senior investigator Rebecca Maze also told them that a private doctor will be handling Swanigan’s death certificate.

There is no evidence Swanigan’s cause of death was COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Death from vaccine side effects can be proven. Vaccine-induced myocarditis, for example, has distinct histopathology findings that are different from typical myocarditis.

Fact #2 : Swanigan Struggled With Weight Issues

Caleb Swanigan had an troubled childhood, spending time in homeless shelters before being adopted by former Detroit Lions star turned sports agent, Roosevelt Barnes.

Swanigan struggled with his weight growing up, weighing 360 lbs (163 kg) as a 13 year-old; but with Barnes’ encouragement, he finished high school as a 6 ft 9 in tall basketball player with a weight of just 260 lbs (118 kg).

After leaving the NBA in Spring 2020, he had a stint with the Portland Trail Blazers, but opted out in the 2022 NBA Bubble due to personal reasons.

Since then, he put on a lot of weight which was noticeable when he was arrested for possession of 3.4 pounds (1.5 kg) of marijuana on December 23, 2022.

When Swanigan appeared for his May 17, 2021 court date, the former basketball player already weighed over 400 lbs (181 kg). So it is possible that his weight issues may have played a part in his early death.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Caleb Swanigan Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Caleb Swanigan was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Unless we know for sure he was vaccinated, anyone who tells you he died from the vaccine is simply lying.

Fact #4 : 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.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Generally Last Only A Few Days

COVID-19 vaccine side effects are generally mild, and last only a few days.

In rare cases, the recipient may suffer from blood clots (AstraZeneca) or myocarditis (Pfizer / Moderna), but they develop within days of receiving the vaccine, not months later.

If Swanigan received the COVID-19 vaccine, he would have received all his doses last year. It is quite impossible for his death to be related to any COVID-19 vaccine he may have received months earlier.

Fact #6 : Claims Of Celebrities Dying From 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.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity death…
