Did WHO Boss Dr. Tedros Refuse COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did WHO Boss Dr. Tedros Refuse COVID-19 Vaccine?!

Did WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus refuse to get the COVID-19 vaccine, despite promoting it in public?!

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

 

Claim : WHO Boss Dr. Tedros Refused The COVID-19 Vaccine!

Anti-vaccination activists are promoting a short video clip which they are claiming is evidence that the WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus himself refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

The video was cut to a 35-second segment, which apparently showed Dr. Tedros admitting that he refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine. It’s often accompanied with comments like :

Tedros not jabbed? Well who’d have thoughts?

Tedros, who demanded that the whole world be jabbed, is still not vaxxed???

Tedros of the WHO has not been jabbed and he admits it.

 

Truth : Dr. Tedros Received COVID-19 Vaccine In May 2021!

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

Fact #1 : Clip Was From A Documentary

First, let’s establish some facts about the viral video clip.

  • The clip was taken from a HBO documentary called “How to Survive a Pandemic” (IMDb)
  • The HBO documentary was released on March 29, 2022.
  • The 35-second segment that went viral was recorded on June 12, 2021.

Fact #2 : Dr. Tedros Delayed His Vaccination

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus had early access to the COVID-19 vaccine in Geneva, Switzerland

However, he delayed his vaccination in solidarity with low-income countries that lacked access to those vaccines.

Even in the viral video clip, he pointed out that he was delaying his COVID-19 vaccination in protest.

Fact #3 : Dr. Tedros Was Vaccinated On May 12, 2021

Dr. Tedros eventually received his COVID-19 vaccination on May 12, 2021, which he announced in a tweet.

He literally waited until two months after Ethiopia started its national COVID-19 vaccination campaign, to get his own COVID-19 vaccine.

I should also point out that the viral video clip was recorded a month after his first vaccination, which meant Dr. Tedros was likely fully-vaccinated when the interview was conducted.

Fact #4 : Clip Was Edited To Remove His Full Response

What was most damning though is the fact that the viral video clip was edited to make it look like Dr. Tedros was not vaccinated.

Here is a transcript of the interview (with the removed responses highlighted in red)

Interviewer : I want to ask you about your own vaccination. You got your first shot… when?

Dr. Tedros : May 12

Interviewer : You’re the head of WHO. You could have said in December 2020, I’m ready. Why did you wait?

Dr. Tedros : You know still I feel like I know where I belong… in a poor country called Ethiopia… in a poor continent called Africa.

With the privileges I have here, maybe I had a chance to have it first. I don’t want to use that, because I want to be reminded every day that vaccination should start in Africa.

I want to wait until Africa and other countries in other regions – low-income countries – start vaccination.

I have a background as a health worker and I’m in one of the risk groups. They were beginning to vaccinate health workers and risk groups [in Africa] around that time, so I thought that was my turn.

I was checking my turn, actually, compared to what I would have in Africa, not in Geneva. So I was protesting, in other words.

Interviewer : How did it feel once you got vaccinated?

Dr. Tedros : I’m still feeling that we’re failing. I was having my shot with disappointment because we are failing…

In short – Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus delayed his own COVID-19 vaccination in protest of vaccine inequality.

Not because he didn’t believe in the COVID-19 vaccines, but because he was deeply disappointed in the unequal access to COVID-19 vaccines that was especially poor in the African continent.

Fact #5 : 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!

Did Sam Gannon Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did Emmerdale actor Sam Gannon die suddenly from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome?!

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

 

Claim : Sam Gannon Died From Vaccine-Induced SADS!

Within hours of news breaking that Emmerdale actor Sam Gannon died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).

Here are just some examples circulating on social media :

Actor Sam Gannon 31, dies suddenly whilst staying with his family in America.

Another case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome I wonder? 🤔

31 years old. Fit and healthy actor. Dies suddenly. 🤔🤷🏼‍♂️🤔

Another vaccinated young man dies suddenly….

Emmerdale actor Sam Gannon dies suddenly at the age of 31

<dies suddenly klaxon>

Poor guy. When are you saps going to wake up?

 

No Evidence Sam Gannon Died From Vaccine SADS!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity 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 : Sam Gannon’s Death Is Being Investigated

Sam Gannon died on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, while visiting family in California.

The full circumstances surrounding Sam’s death are being investigated by the police, but they are not treating his death as suspicious.

In other words – Sam Gannon’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 Sam Gannon died suddenly.

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

Fact #2 : Sam Gannon Had A Congenital Heart Condition

Sam Gannon’s mother, Angela Gannon, said that he had a heart condition from birth which had “reared its ugly head” in recent months.

While his mother did not reveal what was his congenital heart condition, it seems likely that it may have a role in his death.

Fact #3 : His Family Never Blamed Vaccine For His Death

Sam Gannon’s family started a JustGiving page to raise money to bring his body back to the UK, in which they stated:

Due to the recent and sudden passing of Sam. All donations will be put towards the repatriation of his body from the US and his funeral.

He was a “real life Duracell bunny” with a seemingly endless supply of energy and love. A son, grandson, brother, uncle, partner and friend, he will be missed greatly by everyone who knew him.

We are putting the target as £17,000 as we do not yet know the actual cost.

Sam was a true performer, and any extra money raised will be donated to a UK charity supporting youth theatre, a cause close to Sam’s heart.

Amy, Sam’s sister, is also looking at setting up a foundation in Sam’s name to support people who find themselves in a similar position to him and need extra support.

All donations are greatly appreciated.

If his death was caused by COVID-19 vaccination, you can be sure that his family would have said something to that effect, but they notably did not do that.

So anyone who claims that Sam Gannon died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

Fact #4 : Sam Gannon Was Likely Fully-Vaccinated

While there is no direct evidence that Sam Gannon was vaccinated against COVID-19, he travelled to the United States to visit relatives in California.

The United States currently require non-residents to be fully-vaccinated to travel to the US. While it is possible to travel to the United States with a vaccine exemption, it is more than likely that Sam Gannon was fully-vaccinated.

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

Even if Sam Gannon was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses 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 #6 : 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 #7 : 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 #8 : 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 tragedy…

Did Dillon Quirke Die From Vaccine SADS?!

Did 24 year-old hurling star, Dillon Quirke, die from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome?!

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

 

Claim : Dillon Quirke Died From Vaccine-Induced SADS!

Right after news broke that 24 year-old hurling star Dillon Quirke collapsed during a game and died, people started claiming that his death was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

I presume the family are looking for a post mortem in the case of tragic hurling star Dillon Quirke Tipperary, who died yest. In light of the noticeable increase of athlete deaths and injuries internationally following the jab, I think this would be prudent. #suddendeaths2022

Magician with a hurl. Devastating news. Can’t help thinking the vaccine was in some way related as there’s been so many similar incidents recently worldwide

[/su_note]

it is a jab i am sad to say

No Evidence Dillon Quirke 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 : Dillon Quirke’s Cause Of Death Is Currently Unknown

Dillon Quirke collapsed during a county senior championship game at the Semple Stadium on Friday, August 5, 2022.

His Clonoulty-Rossmore teammates, and his opponents Kilruane MacDonaghs, quickly came to his aid.

He received medical attention on the field, before being sent to the Tipperary University Hospital where he later died.

This was the official statement by the Tipperary Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) :

Tipperary GAA extends its heartfelt and sincere sympathies to Dan, Hazel, Shannon, Kellie and the extended Quirke family. Also, to the Clonoulty Rossmore GAA Club and his teammates on the sad and tragic passing of Clonoulty Rossmore and Tipperary hurler Dillon Quirke.

Dillon became ill during Friday evenings County Senior Hurling Championship game between Clonoulty Rossmore and Kilruane MacDonaghs in Semple Stadium and was taken to Tipperary University Hospital in Clonmel where he passed away.

You will note that they did not mention any cause of death. Dillon Quirke’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 Dillion Quirke died suddenly during a hurling game.

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

Fact #2 : Dillon Quirke Had Heart Problems For Years

Dillon Quirke had heart problems for years, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

In 2018, Quirke took a break from hurling after he contracted viral myocarditis. As he explained himself :

I had a virus called myocarditis last year and that took a lot out of me so I had to take three or four months off, I wasn’t allowed to do a thing.

I took last year off and I got back in with the club and it was nice to get a call by Liam Sheedy this year and I just wanted to give it my best shot.

The lining of your heart gets swollen, it comes under stress, it can often happen when your immune system is low.

I collapsed at home one day after work and I went down to hospital and after a good few tests, they eventually found out what was the problem.

I had to take away physical contact, no training for three months. I just wasn’t able to catch up so I thought it was best to take a break for the year.

Even after he came back to hurling, he collapsed again after just three months on the field. And when he got back with the team again, he developed shingles.

I collapsed and then I came back after three months and I collapsed again and was taken off in the ambulance again.

That’s why I had to take a break. When I came back then with the club, I got shingles.

My immune system was very low. The doc is very good as well so he keeps track. I still do tests but it’s all 100 per cent now.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Dillon Quirke Was Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Dillon Quirke 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 Ireland, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Read more : Did Pfizer Try To Hide 158K Vax Adverse Events For 75 Years?

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Dillon Quirke 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 #5 : 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.

Fact #6 : 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.

Did 5 Doctors Die Right After Getting Booster Dose?!

Did five Toronto doctors die within a week of getting their COVID-19 booster dose?!

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

 

Claim : Five Doctors Died Right After Getting Booster Dose!

Vancouver Times just posted an article claiming that five Toronto doctors from their COVID-19 booster dose

It’s a long article, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

5 doctors in the Greater Toronto Area in Canada are dead as a direct result of taking the experimental Covid jab, according to a recently released report viewed by the Vancouver Times.

One doctor, Dr. Paul Hannam, had his death officially linked to the Covid “vaccine” earlier this month. The news went unreported by mainstream outlets.

 

Those Doctors Did NOT Die After Getting 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 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news. To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” :

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

The truth is – they just create fake news to “go viral”. Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Dr. Paul D. Hannam Died Of Sudden Cardiac Failure

Dr. Paul Davidson Hannam collapsed and died of sudden cardiac failure while he was out for a run.

While anti-vaccination activists claim that it is impossible for athletes and fit people to die during exercise, that’s not true.

The truth is – many fit 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 : Dr. Paul Hannam : Cause of Death Was Not Vaccine!

Fact #3 : Dr. Lorne Segall Died Of Lung Cancer

Dr. Lorne E. Segall died after a year-long battle with advanced lung cancer.

So he most definitely did not die from getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #4 : 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 #5 : 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.

Read more : Did Four Doctors Die Right After 4th Vaccine Dose?!

Fact #6 : Dr. Candace Nayman Collapsed During A Triathlon

Dr. Candace Nayman collapsed in the water during the Toronto Triathlon Festival on Sunday, July 24, 2022.

Lifeguards responded immediately, rescuing her from the water and paramedics attended to her before they took her to the hospital. Unfortunately, she died four days later, on Thursday, July 28.

Deaths from cardiac arrests during triathlons are not rare – a study of more than 9 million participants in the US over 3 decades showed that the incidence rate was 1.74 out of every 100,000 competitors.

According to the lead study author, Dr. Kevin Harris – a cardiologist at the Abbott-Northwestern Hospital in Minnesota :

The majority (66.7%) of deaths occur in the swim portion of the triathlon, which is the first portion of the race.

During this portion of the race, the athletes likely experience an adrenaline surge as they enter the water and are competing in close proximity to other athletes, and in some cases with environmental conditions that are difficult to prepare for.

Fact #7 : No Evidence They Received Booster Dose Recently

Jason Pires of Vancouver Times claimed, without evidence, that the five Toronto doctors died “as a direct result” of getting the booster dose.

He was too lazy to even point out that the province of Ontario started recommending the 2nd booster dose (4th vaccine dose) just before the doctors died.

But even if he did – it wouldn’t mean anything, because it does not mean they actually got the second booster dose.

The truth is – there is NO EVIDENCE any of the five doctors received a COVID-19 booster dose recently.

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

Fact #8 : Bill Gates And Dr. Tedros Were Not Arrested

Vancouver Times created the fake stories that both Bill Gates and WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus were arrested for crimes against humanity.

That was completely fabricated to trigger conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story.

INTERPOL does NOT have the power to arrest or charge anyone of any crime in any country around the world.

Fact #9 : There Are No Arrest Warrants For Justin Trudeau + Klaus Schwab

Vancouver Times also created the fake story that INTERPOL issued arrest warrants for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and WEF Chairman Klaus Schwab.

There is no arrest warrant for either men. This was fabricated by Vancouver Times to trigger conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists to share their fake news.

Fact #10 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on Bill Russell dying from the COVID-19 vaccine.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the American government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about Bill Russell’s death.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single blogger or online website published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #11 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about Bill Russell’s cause of death.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Bill Russell, the most prolific winner in American sports history, passed away peacefully today at age 88, with his wife, Jeannine, by his side.

It notably did not mention the COVID-19 vaccine as his cause of death, so anyone who claims that they did (looking at Jason Pires of Vancouver Times!) is LYING to you.

Read more : Was Bill Gates Just Arrested By German Military?!

Fact #3 : There Was No Autopsy Report

Vancouver Times falsely claimed that an autopsy performed on Bill Russell revealed that he died from a heart attack brought upon by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Not only was there no autopsy report by the coroner’s office, COVID-19 vaccines cannot cause heart attacks, which are caused by the blockage of one or more coronary arteries.

Fact #4 : Bill Russell Was Vaccinated In 2021

Bill Russell was vaccinated in February 2021, notably using the occasion to film a PSA video for the NBA on the importance of getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

I just arrived to get my COVID shot, and this is one shot I won’t block. … Let’s do this together.

However, it is unknown if he received his first or second booster dose.

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

Even if Bill Russell received the second booster dose against COVID-19, he would have received it 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 #6 : Bill Gates And Dr. Tedros Were Not Arrested

Vancouver Times created the fake stories that both Bill Gates and WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus were arrested for crimes against humanity.

That was completely fabricated to trigger conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story.

INTERPOL does NOT have the power to arrest or charge anyone of any crime in any country around the world.

Fact #7 : There Are No Arrest Warrants For Justin Trudeau + Klaus Schwab

Vancouver Times also created the fake story that INTERPOL issued arrest warrants for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and WEF Chairman Klaus Schwab.

There is no arrest warrant for either men. This was fabricated by Vancouver Times to trigger conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists to share their fake news.

Fact #8 : There Is No Plandemic

To bait anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story, Vancouver Times used their favourite term – plandemic.

There is no such thing as a plandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic was not part of some nefarious scheme to bankrupt the world to bring the West under communism.

More than 2.5 years after the COVID-19 pandemic started, the world isn’t bankrupt, and the West is no closer to becoming communist.

Fact #9 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on Bill Russell dying from the COVID-19 vaccine.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the American government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about Bill Russell’s death.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single blogger or online website published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #10 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about Bill Russell’s cause of death.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.

Everything that Vancouver Times publishes should be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Does Pfizer CEO aim to cut world population by 50%?

Did Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla say that one of his goals was to cut world population to 50% by the year 2023?!

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

 

Claim : Pfizer CEO Aims To Cut World Population By 50%!

Anti-vaccination activists are sharing a video that shows Pfizer CEO speaking at the World Economic Forum, saying :

I think that it’s really fulfilling of a dream that we had together with my leadership team when we started in ’19.

The first week we met, in January of ‘19 in California, and set up the goals for the next five years. And one of them was by 2023, we would reduce the number of people in the world by 50%.

I think today, this dream is becoming reality.

Are you shocked? Well, you would be even more shocked by the truth…

 

Truth : Pfizer CEO Does Not Aim To Cut World Population By 50%!

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 : Video Was Recorded At WEF In May 2022

First, let us establish some basic facts about this video.

  1. The full video shows WEF founder Klaus Schwab having a conversation with Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla
  2. The viral video clip is a 30-second segment that starts at 2:36 minute of the full video.
  3. The video was recorded at the 2022 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting
  4. It was live-streamed on May 25, 2022 at about 2 PM CEST.

Fact #2 : Viral Video Was Edited

What you may not have noticed was that the viral video was edited, to remove the words “that cannot afford our medicines“.

If you watch the full video from the 2:36 minute point, you will see that Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla actually say :

And one of them was by 2023, we would reduce the number of people in the world that cannot afford our medicines by 50%.

By removing that small segment, the edited video makes Albert Bourla appear to say that it was his dream to reduce the world population to 50% by 2023.

Read more : Did Study Show Pfizer Vaccine Altering Liver DNA In 6 Hours?!

Fact #3 : Big Pharma Needs More People, Not Fewer

It is frankly really stupid for anti-vaccination activists to claim that Big Pharma wants to reduce the world’s population.

Who do you think they sell their vaccines and medicines to? Aliens???

For Big Pharma to make tons of money, they need the world’s population to expand, not contract.

If they cut down the world’s population by 50%, that’s 50% fewer people to buy their drugs and vaccines.

Fact #4 : World’s Population Has Been Steadily Increasing

Regardless of whatever you may believe that the Pfizer CEO may have said, the fact still remains – the world’s population has not stopped increasing over time.

In fact, the world’s population is projected to hit 8 BILLION people on 15 November 2022!

The claim that Pfizer is achieving its dream of reducing the world’s population by half by 2023 is just ludicrous.

Fact #5 : 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!

Read more : Antivax Steve Kirsch Admits He’s Fully-Vaccinated!

Fact #6 : Anti-Vaccine Claims All Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists twisting the facts to deceive you into believing that vaccines are dangerous.

So far, their COVID-19 vaccine claims have proven to be false… at every instance!

Was Bill Gates Just Arrested By German Military?!

Was Bill Gates just arrested by the German military on INTERPOL orders?!

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

 

Vancouver Times : Bill Gates Was Just Arrested By German Military!

Vancouver Times just scored another “scoop”, claiming that the German military just arrested Microsoft billionaire founder, Bill Gates, on INTERPOL orders!

It’s a long post, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Bill Gates Arrested By German Military, Faces Death Penalty

Bill Gates, billionaire and founder of Microsoft, has been arrested at one of his residences in Germany by the military on orders of Interpol. He is facing charges for crimes against humanity and genocide. Gates is facing a slew of additional charges due to what was found in his secret hideout.

Read more : Did Interpol Order Arrest Of Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau, Klaus Schwab?!

 

Truth : Bill Gates Was NOT Arrested By German Military!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Vancouver Times to generate page views and money from gullible people.

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Bill Gates Was Not Arrested By German Military

It may seem obvious, but it has to be said – Bill Gates was not arrested, or charged with crimes against humanity, by INTERPOL.

In fact, he’s not in Germany, but in the United States. We know this for sure because he posted a picture with Warren Buffett.

Fact #3 : German Military Would Not Be Arresting Civilians

The German military would not be the ones arresting civilians like Bill Gates, even if he was in Germany. It would have been the German Federal Police – the Bundespolizei.

The Bundeswehr is meant to defend Germany against external threats, not conduct police activities like arrest civilians.

Fact #4 : Interpol Did Not Issue Arrest Warrant For Bill Gates

Just in case you are wondering, INTERPOL did not even issue any arrest warrant for Bill Gates.

To convince you that it’s genuine, Vancouver Times linked “international arrest warrants” to the INTERPOL news page, but it was just subterfuge – there was no announcement about Bill Gates.

Read more : Was Bill Gates Arrested For Crimes Against Humanity?

Fact #5 : INTERPOL Has No Jurisdiction In Any Country

INTERPOL is an international organisation that facilitates police cooperation between different countries.

It acts as a liaison between police organisations, and does NOT have any jurisdiction in any country.

INTERPOL does NOT the power to arrest or charge anyone of any crime in any country around the world.

Investigation, arrest and prosecution of any crime is conducted by the individual country’s police force, not INTERPOL.

Fact #6 : There Is No Death Penalty In Germany / Netherlands

Even if Bill Gates was arrested and charged with crimes against humanity and genocide in Germany, or The Hague in the Netherlands, he would not face capital punishment.

The death penalty was abolished in West Germany in 1949, and East Germany in 1987.

The Netherlands abolished the death penalty completely in 1983, with all references removed from Dutch law in 1991.

Regardless of whatever charge he may face in Germany or The Hague, there is no risk of death upon conviction. That was just bullshit made up by Vancouver Times.

Fact #7 : Bill Gates Was Only Arrested In 1977

Interestingly, Bill Gates was once arrested in 1977, for driving his Porsche far above the speed limit in New Mexico.

His mugshot went viral at that time, even though there was no social media back then. Quite a feat!

Fact #8 : Bill Gates Had No Role In Creating COVID-19 Vaccines

Bill Gates has NO ROLE in the creation of COVID-19 vaccines, which were created by different scientific teams all over the world – from the United Kingdom, Germany and the United States to Russia, China and India.

Fact #9 : 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 #10 : There Is No Plandemic

There is no such thing as a plandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic was not part of some nefarious scheme to bankrupt the world to bring the West under communism.

Fact #11 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on INTERPOL issuing arrest warrants against Bill Gates, Justin Trudeau or Klaus Schwab.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the American, Canadian, Swiss and Dutch governments – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about their arrest warrants.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Malaysia No Longer Requires Traveller’s Pass!

All travellers to Malaysia will no longer be required to obtain the Traveller’s Pass in MySejahtera!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Currently : Foreign Travellers Need Traveller’s Pass To Enter Malaysia!

Since 1 May 2022, the Malaysian government has liberalised air travel into Malaysia, waiving both quarantine and insurance requirements.

However, they still require foreign travellers to fill in their details in MySejahtera, to obtain a Traveller’s Pass, prior to departure.

  1. Download the MySejahtera app, and register for your MySejahtera account.
  2. Click on the Traveller icon in MySejahtera, and complete the pre-departure form
    a) fully-vaccinated travellers will receive a Digital Traveller’s Card
    b) partially vaccinated / unvaccinated travellers will receive a Digital Home Surveillance Order (HSO).

This requirement used to apply to Malaysian citizens too, but was waived starting 4 July 2022.

Read more : Air Travel To Malaysia : Latest Covid-19 Requirements + SOP!

 

Now : Traveller’s Pass No Longer Required To Travel To Malaysia!

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced on 31 July 2022 that all travellers will no longer be required to obtain the Traveller’s Pass.

Starting Monday, 1 August 2022, all travellers to Malaysia – citizens and foreigners alike – will no longer be required to fill in their details using the Traveller option in MySejahtera, to obtain a Traveller’s Pass or Digital Home Surveillance Order (HSO).

With this relaxation, travelling to Malaysia will essentially return to pre-pandemic norms. All you need to enter Malaysia is a valid passport, and a visa (if required).

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

We Need to talk about why this is happening.
Parents need to speak out about #VaccineDeaths
#VaccineInjured #VaccineSideEffects #vaccineinjuries #Vaccines #Pfizer #Moderna
College Basketball Star Derek Gray Dead at 20

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

 

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.

Read more : Did NHL Player Bryan Marchment Die From Vaccine SADS?

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.

Read more : Did Pfizer Try To Hide 158K Vax Adverse Events For 75 Years?

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!

Read more : Antivax Steve Kirsch Admits He’s Fully-Vaccinated!

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.

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

Did Three Doctors Die Right After 2nd Booster Dose?!

Did three doctors at a Canadian hospital die just days after receiving their second COVID-19 booster dose?!

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

 

Claim : Three Doctors Died Right After 2nd Booster Dose!

Anti-vaccination activists have been actively promoting the story that three doctors at a Canadian hospital died just days after receiving the second COVID-19 booster dose!

How much can we know deaths of three doctors dying over a three-day period, short time after the Mississauga Health system delivered 4th dose, second boosters for staff?
Dr. Stephen McKenzie Dr. Lorne Segall Dr. Jakub Sawicki

Trillium Partners staff physicians Dr. Jakub Sawicki, Dr. Stephen McKenzie and Dr. Lorne Segall died last week, just days after the tragic death of North York General Hospital’s Dr. Paul Hannam, an Olympian who died during a run at 50 years old.
they won’t admit they had the vax

3 DOCTORS at Trillium Health in Mississauga, Ontario died in a 3-day period just days after receiving their 4th Covid shot.
Doctor’s names Jakub Sawicki, Stephen McKenzie & Lorne Segall.
The dates of death:  July 17, 18, 20.
JUST A COINCIDENCE, RIGHT? 🙄

Read more : Dr. Paul Hannam: Cause Of Death Was Not Vaccine!

 

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!

Dr. Paul Hannam : Cause Of Death Was Not Vaccine!

Did Dr. Paul Hannam die from the 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine he received days ago?!

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

 

Claim : Dr. Paul Hannam Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

Vancouver Times claims that Dr. Paul Hannam from the North York General Hospital died from the 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine he received just days ago.

It’s a long post, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

A top doctor in North York, Toronto has died due to complications from the Covid vaccine.

Dr. Paul Hannam, the chief of emergency medicine and program director at North York General Hospital, died suddenly during a run, local media reported.

Read more : Was WHO DG Dr. Tedros Just Arrested By Interpol?!

 

Truth : Dr. Paul Hannam Did Not Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Vancouver Times to generate page views and money from gullible people.

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Dr. Paul Hannam’s Cause Of Death Was Sudden Cardiac Failure

Dr. Paul Hannam collapsed while he was out for a run. His cause of death was determined to be sudden cardiac failure.

Fact #3 : Athletes Die Unexpectedly Every Year

Vancouver Times suggested that Dr. Paul Hannam cannot possibly die because he was in good shape, and exercised regularly.

The truth is – many fit 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 #4 : North York General Hospital Confirmed His Death Unrelated To Vaccine

North York General Hospital issued a statement refuting claims that Dr. Paul Hannam died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

North York General Hospital can confirm that the tragic death of Dr. Paul Hannam was not related to COVID-19 or vaccinations of any kind.

Fact #5 : Dr. Paul Hannam’s Family Never Talked About A Lawsuit

Dr. Paul Hannam’s family never claimed that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine. They certainly did not state that they plan to “hire a team of high-powered lawyers to take on the vaccine companies”.

Vancouver Times just made it up to bait anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story.

Fact #6 : 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 #7 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on INTERPOL’s investigation of Bill Gates.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the American government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about his arrest.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Yet, not a single blogger or online website published their account of this incredible story? That’s because IT NEVER HAPPENED…

Fact #8 : Mainstream Media + Big Tech Would Have Loved The Hype

Vancouver Times is gaslighting you about how mainstream media and Big Tech want to hide the “truth” about INTERPOL’s (non-existent) investigation of Bill Gates.

They would all loved such shocking news, because it would have driven tons of traffic and engagement to their websites / platforms.

In fact, that was precisely why Vancouver Times created the fake story – to drive traffic, for the ad money.

Did Four Doctors Die Right After 4th Vaccine Dose?!

Did four Toronto doctors die within a week of getting their 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?!

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

 

Claim : Four Doctors Died After Getting 4th Vaccine Dose!

Anti-vaccination activists are sharing a Hollywood LA News video and article which claims that four Toronto doctors died within a week of getting their 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Four Canadian Doctors In Toronto Area Died Last Week
[within one week of their 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine]

 

No Evidence Doctors Died After Getting 4th Vaccine 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 4th Vaccine Dose

Hollywood LA News claimed, without evidence, that all four doctors received the 4th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Their evidence – the province of Ontario started recommending the 2nd booster dose (4th vaccine dose) just before the doctors died.

So what? If the province of Ontario started recommending electric cars a week before the doctors died, does that mean they were killed by electric cars?

The truth is – NO ONE KNOWS if any of the four doctors received the 4th vaccine dose.

Fact #2 : 4th Vaccine 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 four Toronto doctors that died were in those recommended groups.

Read more : Will COVID-19 Vaccination Void Your Life Insurance?

Fact #3 : Vaccination Takes Time

Hollywood LA News suggested that all four doctors got their 4th vaccine dose on the first day the Ontario government made it available – on July 14, 2022.

That’s such utter bullshit. Just because the 4th vaccine dose / 2nd booster dose is available on July 14, does not mean everyone who wants one can get it on that day.

It takes time to vaccinate people, which is why you can’t just walk in for your vaccination. You have to book an appointment!

Even if all those four Toronto doctors eagerly booked appointments for their 4th vaccine does, they may not get it so soon. They are not amongst the recommended group, and may have to wait until more vulnerable people are vaccinated first.

Fact #4 : 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 #5 : Dr. Paul D. Hannam Died Of Sudden Cardiac Failure

Dr. Paul Davidson Hannam collapsed and died of sudden cardiac failure while he was out for a run. Hollywood LA News suggested that it was impossible for a healthy 50 year-old marathon runner to die on a run.

The truth is – many fit 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 #6 : Dr. Lorne Segall Died Of Lung Cancer

Dr. Lorne E. Segall died after a year-long battle with advanced lung cancer.

So he most definitely did not die from getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #7 : 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 #9 : North York General Hospital Confirmed Death Unrelated To Vaccine

North York General Hospital issued a statement refuting claims that Dr. Paul Hannam died from the COVID-19 vaccine.

North York General Hospital can confirm that the tragic death of Dr. Paul Hannam was not related to COVID-19 or vaccinations of any kind.

Fact #10 : Trillium Confirmed Doctor Deaths Unrelated To Vaccine

The other three doctors – Dr. Lorne E. Segall, Dr. Stephen W. McKenzie, and Dr. Jakub T. Sawicki – worked for Trillium Health Partners, which put out 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 #11 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines Can Be Proven

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up 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.

Did Germany admit 1 in 5000 vaccine shots cause serious effects?!

Did Germany just admit that 1 in 5,000 vaccine shots cause “serious side effects”?!

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

 

Claim : Germany Admits 1 in 5,000 Vaccine Shots Cause Serious Effects!

Anti-vaccination activists are sharing a screenshot of a Facebook post, or a CHD article claiming that Germany just admitted that 1 in 5,000 vaccine shots cause “serious side effects”!

Here is what The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) wrote about this shocking claim. It’s rather long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

‘Stunning’: 1 in 5,000 COVID Shots Caused ‘Serious Side Effects,’ German Health Officials Admit

The German Federal Ministry of Health on Wednesday posted a “stunning tweet” admitting 1 of every 5,000 COVID-19 vaccinations caused “serious side effects.” The data included 5,862 reports of suspected adverse reactions in children and adolescents.

 

Germany Did NOT Admit 1 in 5,000 Vaccine Shots Cause Serious Effects!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists and The Children’s Health Defense (CHD) to scare people from protecting themselves against COVID-19, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Germany Never Said That

It is interesting to note that the CHD and anti-vaccination activists posted screenshots of the post by the German Federal Ministry of Health (Bundesministerium für Gesundheit), but not links to the tweet or Facebook post.

If you check the actual tweet or Facebook post and do a machine translation, you would realise that German health officials never said any of that.

For your convenience, here was what the German Federal Ministry of Health posted, machine translated into English :

0,2 Verdachtsmeldungen pro 1.000 Impfdosen beträgt die Melderate ans Paul-Ehrlich-Institut für schwerwiegende Reaktionen. Sollten Sie den Verdacht auf Nebenwirkungen haben, holen Sie sich ärztliche Hilfe und melden Sie Ihre Symptome: nebenwirkungen.bund.de/nw/DE/home/home_node.html

The reporting rate to the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut for serious reactions is 0.2 suspected reports per 1,000 vaccine doses. If you suspect side effects, get medical help and report your symptoms: side effects.bund.de/nw/DE/home/home_node.html

As you can see, German health officials never said that 1 in 5,000 vaccine shots in Germany caused severe side effects.

They are only advising people to report any side effects they may encounter and seek medical help if necessary.

Fact #2 : German Poster Never Said That Either

Even the German poster that the CHD and anti-vaccination activists shared, did not say that either.

Verdacht auf Nebenwirkungen durch die Corona-Schutzimpfung?
Wenden Sie sich an Ihre Ärztin oder Ihren Art und melden Sie Ire Symptome dem Paul-Ehrlich-Institutmithilfe de COVID-19-Meldeformulars.

Do you suspect side effects from the coronavirus vaccination?
Contact your doctor or nurse and report your symptoms to the Paul Ehrlich Institute using the COVID-19 reporting form.

This is pretty much what most governments around the world are doing – asking people who believe that they are experiencing side effects from their COVID-19 vaccinations to report them.

This not only disproves what the CHD and anti-vaccination activists claimed, it also shows that there is no cover-up, and that Germany (like many other countries) are interested to find out if the COVID-19 vaccine can indeed cause serious side effects.

Read more : Were COVID-19 Vaccines Recalled After 40K Deaths?!

Fact #3 : German Health Officials Clarified What They Meant

On July 21 – a day after their post went viral on Facebook and Twitter – German health officials clarified that the report rate of 0.2 in 1,000 vaccine doses referred to “all reports of suspected side effects to the Paul Ehrlich Institute”.

They also stated that those reports have not been verified, and no causal connection with the vaccination has been established.

Die Melderate bezieht sich auf alle Verdachtsmeldungen, d. h. ein ursächlicher Zusammenhang mit der Impfung ist mit der Verdachtsmeldung noch nicht bestätigt, es wird erstmal ein zeitlicher Zusammenhang festgestellt.

The report rate refers to all suspicious reports, i.e. a causal connection with the vaccination has not yet been confirmed with the report of suspicion, a time connection is first established.

Fact #4 : German Health Officials Say Serious Side Effect Risks Are Very Low

The German Federal Ministry of Health also stated in their clarification that the risk of a serious side effect from COVID-19 vaccination in Germany is “very low“.

Das Risiko einer schwerwiegenden Nebenwirkung nach einer COVID-19-Impfung ist sehr gering.

The risk of a serious side-effect following a COVID-19 vaccine is very low.

Fact #5 : Pharmacovigilance Data Is Unverified

In their article, CHD lists the number of reported side effects as a way to scare people into believing that the COVID-19 vaccines are dangerous.

What they don’t want you to know is that – these reports are unverified. While the German system isn’t as open to abuse like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, they include reports that have nothing to do with the vaccine.

All pharmacovigilance databases that collect such reports warn that their data and reports cannot be considered evidence of any kind, because :

  • they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
  • the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
  • the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
  • they have not been assessed by health authorities to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

CHD is deliberately misleading you by quoting these reports, because they have not even been confirmed to be caused by COVID-19 vaccines.

Read more : Here’s How Antivaxxers Create Fake News Using VAERS!

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Greatly Reduce Hospitalisation + Death

What the CHD and anti-vaccination activists don’t want you to know is that – the vaccines have been proven to greatly reduce hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

In Germany, RKI stats show that even as COVID-19 infections rates surged, vaccinated people were far less likely to be hospitalised from COVID-19, compared to the unvaccinated.

Fact #7 : 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.

Is Interpol Investigating Bill Gates For Murder?!

Is Interpol investigating Bill Gates for crimes against humanity, and conspiracy to commit murder?!

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

 

Claim : Interpol Is Investigating Bill Gates For Murder!

Vancouver Times followed up with their Dr. Tedros arrest story, with a story claiming that Interpol is now investigating Bill Gates for crimes against humanity, and conspiracy to commit murder!

It’s a long post, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Bill Gates, billionaire founder of Microsoft, is under investigation for conspiracy to commit murder and crimes against humanity, according to several sources at Interpol. Gates may be sentenced to hanging if he is charged and convicted.

Read more : Was WHO DG Dr. Tedros Just Arrested By Interpol?!

 

Truth : Interpol Is Not Investigating Bill Gates For Murder!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Vancouver Times to generate page views and money from gullible people.

Fact #1 : Vancouver Times Is A Fake News Website

Vancouver Times is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news, sometimes masked as “satire”.

To give themselves a veneer of deniability, they label themselves as a “satire website” in their About Us section.

Vancouver Times is the most trusted source for satire on the West Coast. We write satirical stories about issues that affect conservatives.

Here are some of their fake news that we debunked :

Fact #2 : Interpol Is Not Investigating Bill Gates

Just in case you are wondering, INTERPOL is not investigating Klaus Schwab. And no, Vancouver Times did not score an exclusive interview with INTERPOL agents.

INTERPOL would never discuss an active case with the media, and certainly not a copy + paste website like Vancouver Times.

It’s Vancouver Times’ signature disinformation move – claiming to have exclusive sources. It’s nothing but bullshit.

Read more : Was Bill Gates Arrested For Crimes Against Humanity?

Fact #3 : INTERPOL Has No Jurisdiction In Any Country

INTERPOL is an international organisation that facilitates police cooperation between different countries.

It acts as a liaison between police organisations, and does NOT have any jurisdiction in any country.

INTERPOL does NOT the power to arrest or charge anyone of any crime in any country around the world.

Investigation, arrest and prosecution of any crime is conducted by the individual country’s police force, not INTERPOL.

Fact #4 : Bill Gates + Klaus Schwab Were “Arrested” Before

To bait conspiracy theorists and anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake news, Vancouver Times falsely claimed that both Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab are under investigation, and could soon be arrested.

They were both falsely claimed to have been arrested last year, by the infamous Conservative Beaver – a fake news website like Vancouver Times.

There are so many similarities between Conservative Beaver and Vancouver Times that it is possible that they were created by the same people.

Fact #5 : Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus Was Not Arrested For Genocide

Vancouver Times made up the fake story that INTERPOL arrested Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus for crimes against humanity.

That never happened. They only created that story to drive traffic to their website, which must not be doing well despite their prolific copying and pasting of other people’s articles.

Read more : Was WHO DG Dr. Tedros Just Arrested By Interpol?!

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 : There Is No Plandemic

To bait anti-vaccination activists into sharing their fake story, Vancouver Times used their favourite term – plandemic.

There is no such thing as a plandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic was not part of some nefarious scheme to bankrupt the world to bring the West under communism.

More than 2.5 years after the COVID-19 pandemic started, the world isn’t bankrupt, and the West is no closer to becoming communist.

Fact #8 : There Is No Such Thing As A Publication Ban

Vancouver Times likes to use the “media blackout” claim, to explain why you can’t find any reputable media outlet reporting on INTERPOL’s investigation of Bill Gates.

That’s utter and complete bullshit. No one – not a judge, not even the American government – can control the worldwide media, or prevent anyone from writing about his arrest.

You can also be sure that even if the mainstream media refused to run the story, it would have been reported by many other websites and bloggers.

Did Singapore Recommend Against Second Booster?!

Did Singapore make a sudden U-turn and recommend against getting the second COVID-19 booster dose?!

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

 

Claim : Singapore Recommends Against Second Booster Dose!

People are sharing a link to a Channel News Asia article, claiming that the Singapore Ministry of Health (MOH) advised people aged 60 to 79 against getting the second booster dose.

They are also claiming that the Singapore government made this sudden U-turn due to adverse effects from the second booster dose.

Singapore MOH: Second COVID-19 booster NOT RECOMMENDED for people aged 60 to 79.

https://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore/covid-19-vaccine-second-booster-senior-60-79-2641261

With all the adverse effects, Singapore government is making a sudden U-turn. 😳🤔😷

Truth : Singapore Recommends Second Booster For Vulnerable Adults

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 : It Was An Old Article

First, let me establish some facts about the Channel News Asia article.

It’s a genuine news report, in which, Singapore’s Director of Medical Services said that :

The Expert Committee on COVID-19 (EC19V) does not recommend that people aged 60 to 79 years take a second booster shot, but they can take the jab if they wish to.

However, that news is not recent – it was published on 22 April 2022 – more than 3 months earlier. I will explain below why this is critical.

Fact #2 : There Was No U-Turn

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claimed that this was a U-turn, to mislead you into believing that they did so because of adverse effects from the booster dose.

The truth is – there was no U-turn. The April recommendations actually expanded who can receive the second booster dose.

In March 2022, the Singapore Expert Committee on COVID-19 (EC19V) recommended that only people age 80 years and above should get the second booster dose.

The April 2022 announcement actually expands coverage to senior citizens 60 to 79 years in age, although they do not recommend that they get the second booster dose yet.

Fact #3 : First Booster Dose Still Provided Good Protection

Anti-vaccination activists are also misleading you on WHY the Singapore MOH said that the second booster dose was not recommended for people aged 60-79.

The CNA article itself already stated the reasons clearly, but the trouble is – most people don’t even bother to read beyond the headlines.

So here is the truth – the Singapore MOH recommended against the second booster dose for that age group because the effectiveness of the first booster dose for that age group remained high – 80% to 90% at the 120- to 180-day mark.

This affirms the importance then of having up-to-date vaccinations to reduce the risk of getting severe infections and dying from COVID-1.

Fact #4 : It Was A Strategy To Defend Against Next COVID-19 Wave

Singapore had COVID-19 under control in April 2022, and the additional protection from the second booster dose wanes after about 2 months.

So they wanted to delay vaccinating the younger population (under 80 years old) until they face a new wave of more virulent Variants of Concern (VOC).

That was when the second booster dose would be most effective – boosting protection at a time of high viral transmission.

If we need to provide the second booster dose for the younger population, this is more appropriate as a strategy to augment immune protection in a time when we are experiencing a new wave of a highly transmissible or highly virulent novel VOC (variant of concern) rather than at a time where the situation is improving.

Fact #5 : Singapore Expanded Second Booster To 50+

On 10 June 2022, the EC19V updated their recommendations, offering the second booster dose in Singapore to:

  • all persons aged 50 years and older
  • persons aged 18 years and above who are medically vulnerable too severe COVID-19

This decision came after Singapore got hit with a new wave fuelled by the highly-contagious Omicron variants that started in May and continues to surge even now, at the end of July 2022.

Fact #6 : Second Booster Dose Same As Primary Vaccine

Singapore offers three booster doses – Moderna Spikevax, Pfizer COMIRNATY and Novavax Nuvaxovid.

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 #7 : 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!

James Caan Autopsy : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine!

The autopsy report for James Caan just confirmed that he did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Claim : Vaccine Was Cause Of Death For James Caan Too!

Right after news broke that James Caan has died, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccination.

James Caan most likely died from the blood clots in his heart caused due to the Covid vaccine just like everybody else is dying with blood clots in wall heart in their sleep what the fuck is going on in this world does anybody still take it up the ass #FJB

Couldn’t possibly be related to the covid-19 vaccine side effect could it?

So sad another human had to die from the poison jab

James Caan, actor who played Sonny Corleone in ‘The Godfather,’ dies at 82

no doubt he ws vaxxed w covid-19 vax, de design is 2 kill off old white people 1st, and blacks, and so far it’s workng; Gen. Colin Powell, Marv. Marvin Hagler, DMX all dead

 

James Caan Autopsy : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

But yet again, they have been proven wrong, and we know this for a fact because we now have the autopsy report for James Caan!

Fact #1 : James Caan’s Autopsy Confirmed His Cause Of Death

On July 23, 2022, TMZ obtained the autopsy report for James Caan, which you can download yourself (pdf).

The autopsy report by the Los Angeles Department of Public Health states very clearly that James Cann died from a myocardial infarction (heart attack) brought upon by coronary heart disease.

The autopsy report also stated that James Caan was suffering from two chronic diseases that also contributed to his death – chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure.

No other causes of death were found. Not myocarditis (the antivaxxer’s favourite bogeyman), not VITT, not even SADS.

Fact #2 : James Caan Died In A Hospital

The autopsy report also prove another anti-vaccination claim false – that James Caan died in his sleep from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).

Anti-vaccination activists jumped onto his family’s statement that James Caan died in the evening, and “assumed” that he died in his sleep.

The autopsy report though clearly states that James Caan was at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center when he died at 9:02 PM on July 6, 2022.

So, no, James Caan did not die unexpectedly in his sleep at home from vaccine-induced SADS, which doesn’t even exist!

Read more : Bob Saget Died From Head Trauma, Not Vaccine!

Fact #3 : 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 #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.

Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!

Fact #5 : 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.

James Caan now joins a long list of celebrities whose deaths / injuries have been falsely blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines.

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

Did James Caan Die From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS?!

Did James Caan die at the age of 82 from COVID-19 vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS)?!

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

 

Claim : James Caan Died From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

Here we go again – within hours of news breaking that James Caan has died, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccination.

Here are just some examples circulating on social media :

James Caan most likely died from the blood clots in his heart caused due to the Covid vaccine just like everybody else is dying with blood clots in wall heart in their sleep what the fuck is going on in this world does anybody still take it up the ass #FJB

Couldn’t possibly be related to the covid-19 vaccine side effect could it?

no doubt he ws vaxxed w covid-19 vax, de design is 2 kill off old white people 1st, and blacks, and so far it’s workng; Gen. Colin Powell, Marv. Marvin Hagler, DMX all dead

 

Truth : James Caan Did NOT Die From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity 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 : James Caan Died Of A Heart Attack

An autopsy of James Caan revealed that he died from a myocardial infarction (heart attack) brought upon by coronary heart disease.

The autopsy report also stated that James Caan was suffering from two chronic diseases that also contributed to his death – chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure.

That is definitive proof that James Caan’s death had nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccine.

He now joins a long list of celebrities whose deaths / injuries have been falsely blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #2 : His Family Never Mentioned Vaccine As A Cause

Just to be very clear – James Caan’s family never mentioned the COVID-19 vaccine as his cause of death.

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Jimmy on the evening of July 6.

The family appreciates the outpouring of love and heartfelt condolences and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.

If his death was caused by COVID-19 vaccination, you can be sure that his family would have said something to that effect.

Even his son, Scott – also an actor, did not post anything on social media, claiming that his father died from the vaccine.

So anyone who claims that James Caan died from the COVID-19 vaccine is simply… LYING to you.

James Caan and his son, Scott Caan

Fact #3 : James Caan Was 82 Years Old

This is distasteful, but I have to point out that people do die of natural causes from old age.

The average life expectancy in the United States is 77.0 years, as of March 25, 2022. It is shorter for males – 75.1 years, compared to females, whose average life expectancy is 80.5 years.

James Edmund Caan was 82 years old when he died. A death of natural causes at his age is not unexpected – he lived at least 7 years longer than the average American male.

Fact #4 : Unknown If James Caan Was Vaccinated

I should point out that no one knows if James Caan was even vaccinated against COVID-19, although a few blogs have speculated on his vaccination status.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim, there is no vaccine mandate in the United States.

Hence, James Caan may well be unvaccinated against COVID-19, unlike a certain prominent antivaxxer

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

Even if James Caan was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses 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 #6 : 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 #7 : 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.

Were COVID-19 Vaccines Recalled After 40K Deaths?!

Have COVID-19 vaccines been recalled after over 40,000 deaths were reported in major safety databases?!

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

 

Claim : COVID-19 Vaccines Were Recalled After 40K Deaths!

People are sharing a video of Dr. Peter McCullough testifying to a Senate Committee on Health & Human Services, as evidence that COVID-19 vaccines have been recalled after 40,000 deaths!

It is often shared with comments like this :

50 deaths is the threshold for a vaccine recall.

40,000 #COVID19 #VaccineDeaths and no recall.

Ask yourself, why is this the first in history?

The video shows Dr. Peter McCullough making a number of claims. Here is my transcript.

It’s long so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts…

This month, the World Council for Health, which represents 70 bodies worldwide, has called for a global recall of all vaccines, because worldwide 40,000 deaths that these safety databases across the world… 40,000 in the big ones – VAERS, the Yellow Card System, the VigiSafe [sic] and Eudrys [sic] system. 40,000 deaths with the vaccines.

 

Truth : COVID-19 Vaccines Are Safe + Were Not Recalled!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, including Dr. Peter McCullough himself, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It Was A Texas Senate Hearing

First, let us understand the context behind the viral video.

It was a partial clip from a 10.5 hour long interim hearing on public health data and the COVID-19 pandemic response held by the Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee on June 27, 2022.

The Texas Senate hearing was just political theatre, in which the Republicans brought in fringe doctors or scientists like Peter McCullough and Robert Malone to, well, tell their lies.

I will now go through the McCullough clip (which starts at about 8:05:00), and show you why he has not changed his lying ways…

Fact #2 : No COVID-19 Vaccines Were Recalled

Just to be clear – no COVID-19 vaccines were recalled, either by health authorities or the manufacturers themselves.

That is merely a fantasy conjured up by anti-vaccination activists, just like how they fantasised in August 2021 that Germany put all COVID-19 vaccines on hold!

Fact #3 : WCH Called For Vaccine Recall Since Sept. 2021

Despite its name – the World Council for Health (WCH) is really just another anti-vaccination organisation, filled with the usual suspects.

Just to be clear – it has no authority whatsoever. The WCH is nothing more than an antivaxxer club.

The WCH was launched on September 23, 2021 with the expressed purpose of calling for “an Immediate Stop to the Covid-19 Experimental Vaccines“.

They also issued a Cease and Desist declaration, claiming that “Covid-19 vaccinations are dangerous and unsafe for human use“.

So Peter McCullough falsely claimed that WCH called for a vaccine recall “this month”. It has been calling for a vaccine recall from the very first day it was established. That is really its sole purpose – to stop COVID-19 vaccinations.

Fact #4 : VigiSafe + Eudrys Do Not Exist

Peter McCullough referred to the VigiSafe and Eudrys vaccine safety databases, but they do not exist.

Perhaps he meant the WHO VigiBase / VigiAccess database, and the EudraVigilance system run by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Read more : Did Italian Court Rule Vaccine Mandate As Unconstitutional?!

Fact #5 : Pharmacovigilance Data Is Unverified

It is hilarious that Peter McCullough still insists on using pharmacovigilance data from VAERS, the Yellow Card system, etc. as evidence.

Anyone who even bothers to read the highlighted WARNINGS on those websites would have understood that their data and reports cannot be considered evidence of any kind, because:

  • they may contain duplicated information and/or reports
  • the reported event may be caused by an illness, like a COVID-19 infection for example,
  • the reported event may be caused by a different drug taken by the patient at the same time
  • they have not been assessed by health authorities to ascertain if it’s even “biologically plausible”

In addition, open systems like VAERS, or the UK Yellow Card system, are very susceptible to abuse because they allow anyone from anywhere to post anything they want, without evidence or verification.

Anti-vaccination activists can, for example, key in unlimited numbers of adverse reaction reports, even if they never received a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Read more : Here’s How Antivaxxers Create Fake News Using VAERS!

Fact #6 : 40,000 Deaths Not Proven To Be Caused By Vaccines

Using pharmacovigilance data to claim that the COVID-19 vaccines caused 40,000 deaths is disinformation – false information deliberately created to deceive you.

Peter McCullough has no evidence that the 40,000 deaths reported in pharmacovigilance data were actually caused by COVID-19 vaccines.

Making an adverse reaction report is no different from making a police report. If you make a police report, it is registered in the system. However, that doesn’t mean a crime was actually committed. The police will have to investigate and determine if you were lying / mistaken, or there was indeed a crime.

Similarly, these adverse reaction reports are just reports. They must first be investigated, in order to determine if they are really side effects of the vaccine, or completely unrelated.

Fact #7 : There Is No 50 Death Threshold For Vaccine Withdrawal

There is no such thing as a 50 death threshold for a vaccine withdrawal.

Vaccines are often recalled for non-lethal reasons. In fact, they are most often recalled in batches by their manufacturers after quality control tests showed some irregularities in certain batches.

Health authorities like the US FDA also monitor vaccines continuously and determine if there is a safety concern that warrants a withdrawal. They do not have to wait for 50 people to die first. That’s just absurd!

Sometimes vaccines are also recalled due to “low vaccine potency or strength”. In such cases, people who received them would need to get an extra dose!

Red more : Do mRNA Vaccines Cause Invasion Of Killer Lymphocytes?!

Fact #8 : There Were Only 43 Omicron Cases On Dec. 10, 2021

It is interesting that Peter McCullough would talk about Omicron cases six months in the past.

But if you dig a little deeper, you will realise that he chose to talk about Omicron cases on December 10, 2021 because it was the first CDC report on Omicron cases in the United States.

At that time, there were only 43 known Omicron cases in the United States. Even though it showed that 79% were fully-vaccinated, that is misleading due to the low number of cases.

Fact #9 : Vaccinated People Have Mild Symptoms, Fewer Deaths

What he does not tell you is that most fully-vaccinated people experience mild symptoms even if they were infected with the Omicron variant.

He also does not tell you that COVID-19 deaths for fully-vaccinated people remain low, even as surges increased deaths for unvaccinated people, regardless of variant.

Read more : Did Study Show Pfizer Vaccine Altering Liver DNA In 6 Hours?!

Fact #10 : Vaccines Were Meant To Prevent Hospitalisation + Death

Peter McCullough falsely claimed that the 79% result was “prima facie evidence” that the COVID-19 vaccines failed to work against the Omicron variant.

The COVID-19 vaccines are not force fields – they cannot block infections. They were designed to prevent symptomatic infections, severe disease and death by training your own immune system to defend itself against the ancestral SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Omicron variant causes more breakthrough infections, but the COVID-19 vaccines continue to protect against severe disease leading to hospitalisations, and death from the Omicron variant.

The truth is – the COVID-19 vaccines still work well against the Omicron variants. They may not prevent infections, but they will ensure you have milder symptoms, and greatly reduce your risk of severe disease and death.

Fact #11 : Booster Doses Increase Protection Against Omicron

What Peter McCullough does not mention is the fact that you can improve your protection against the Omicron variant by getting a booster dose (or two).

A January 2022 study by the CDC showed that getting a third dose of any mRNA vaccine increases protection against both the Delta and Omicron variants.

Fact #12 : Anti-Vaccine Claims All Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists twisting the facts to deceive you into believing that vaccines are dangerous.

So far, their COVID-19 vaccine claims have proven to be false… at every instance!

Did Paul Duncan Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!

Did 35 year-old former NFL player Paul Duncan die from a vaccine-induced cardiac arrest?!

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

 

Claim : Paul Duncan Died From Vaccine-Induced Cardiac Arrest!

Right after news broke that 35 year-old former NFL player Paul Duncan died from a cardiac arrest while going for a run, people started claiming that his heart attack was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

“The Notre Dame football program is mourning the death of former offensive lineman Paul Duncan, who died on July 15 when he went into cardiac arrest on a run in his neighborhood.”

… another young sudden death.

What a shame. It’s terrible you have to think this but my mind immediately goes to – was he vaccinated?

Denver broncos 35 yo Paul Duncan dies of a heart attack while running. That happens to all young athletes these days, o like Rafael Nadal, at US open! Confused as to why? Research some for yourself the answer is clear.

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

 

No Evidence Paul Duncan 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 : Paul Duncan Died From Cardiac Arrest

Paul Duncan went into cardiac arrest while running in his Atlanta, Georgia neighbourhood on Friday, July 15, 2022. He was hospitalised, but pronounced brain dead the next day.

His wife, Ellen Duncan, confirmed this in her Instagram post on Saturday, July 16, 2022.

Yesterday, Friday July 15th, Paul went into cardiac arrest while on a run in our neighborhood. Today he was pronounced brain dead. We will have a medical examination to understand cause of death.

His body will be donated to people in need of organs and to medical research. Details on funeral arrangements to follow.

Thank you for your prayer and support.

You will note that she did not even mention the COVID-19 vaccine as a cause of his death.

Fact #2 : An Autopsy Will Be Conducted On Paul Duncan

As his wife explained, an autopsy will be conducted on Paul Duncan, to understand his cause of death.

Paul Duncan’s autopsy appears to be completed and his body released to his family, as his funeral mass has been scheduled for Monday, July 25, 2022.

Until that autopsy report is revealed by his wife, anyone who tells you that Paul Duncan died from this or that cause is LYING to you.

Read more : Did NHL Player Bryan Marchment Die From Vaccine SADS?

Fact #3 : 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.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Paul Duncan Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Paul Duncan 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 #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Paul Duncan 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 #6 : 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 #7 : 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 #8 : 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 tragedy…

Kevin Samuels : Cause Of Death Was Hypertension, Not Vaccine!

The cause of death for YouTube star and dating guru Kevin Samuels has been confirmed to be hypertension, not the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Antivaxxers : Vaccine Was Cause Of Death For Kevin Samuels!

Since the news broke that YouTube star and dating guru, Kevin Samuels, collapsed and died, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Many insisted that he is “yet another” case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

I can’t believe we let the mainstream media integrate us into this hoax. Kevin Samuels dropped dead after getting the vaccine & more black men will follow in his footsteps with unexplained blood clots & heart issues after getting the 💉 death shot

#KevinSamuels another celebrity dead from heart attack,yet still no talk bout vaccines,one minute the brother perfect and healthy,nxt his pushing up daisies?you all better start to smell the stench of those vaccine death 😢

So those who are still wondering why healthy adults are dying of heart related issues, most recently Kevin Samuels. #vaccine #adversereactions #covid

Nurse who spent night with Kevin Samuels is heard telling 911 operators that he was ‘turning blue’. Looks like vaccine death

Kevin Samuels : Cause Of Death Was Hypertension, Not Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

But yet again, they have been proven wrong! Here is what we now know for sure…

Fact #1 : Kevin Samuels Died After Suffering Chest Pains

Kevin Samuels was spending a night with Ortensia Alcantara, a 32 year-old nurse, when he suffered chest pains and collapsed on her, turning blue.

The nurse called 911, and gave him CPR until first responders arrived. They took him to the Piedmont Hospital, where he died, aged 57.

Fact #2 : Kevin Samuels Did Not Have A Regular Heart Rhythm

Unfortunately for anti-vaccination activists, there was not only a 911 call record, Kevin Samuels was with a trained nurse when he collapsed.

The 911 call revealed that Kevin Samuels did not have a regular heart rhythm when he collapsed, suggesting that he suffered a cardiac arrest with an arrhythmia.

No, [he is not awake.] He has no regular rhythm, I can’t feel it. He is breathing in and out but he has no regular rhythm.

Fact #3 : The Nurse Asked For A Defibrillator

The nurse knew that Kevin Samuels was likely suffering from cardiac arrest, so she was desperately looking for an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

I need to call the front desk to get an AED, he’s not going to make it. If they have one, I need to get it right now, call the front desk so they can get me a f****** AED right now. He’s turning blue, I can’t wait any longer.

Fact #4 : Autopsy Report Said Kevin Samuels Died Of Hypertension

E! News obtained Kevin Samuel’s autopsy report on Monday, July 18, 2022.

According to the autopsy report, Kevin Samuel died of natural causes. His death was attributed to hypertension, also known as high blood pressure.

In the autopsy report dated Thursday, July 14, 2022, Chief Medical Examiner Karen E. Sullivan wrote :

It is my opinion that Kevin Samuels died due to hypertension.

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.

Jak Knight : Cause Of Death Was Suicide, Not Vaccine!

The cause of death for Jak Knight has been confirmed to be suicide, not the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Antivaxxers : Vaccine Was Cause Of Death For Jak Knight!

Since the news broke that young and rising comedian Jak Knight passed away unexpectedly at just 28 years of age, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Many insisted that he is “yet another” case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

Question? When did Jak Knight get the #WuhanFlyingRatFlu #SuddenAdultDeathSyndrome vaccine? 🤔

R.I.P Jak Knight he shouldn’t have trusted the vaccine

Another one bites the vax?! Holy shit. RIP Jak Knight.

Jak Knight, stand-up comedian and writer, dead at 28 – Fox News IS IT JUST ME??? But people of all ages are dying so suddenly. I know that is the circle of life !!!! BUT SINCE THE JAB PEOPLE ARE DROPPING LIKE FLYS

Jak Knight : Cause Of Death Was Suicide, Not Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or injuries on the COVID-19 vaccine.

But yet again, they have been proven wrong, and we know this for a fact because Jak Knight was confirmed to have committed suicide.

Jak Knight was found dead on a Los Angeles embankment on Thursday, July 14, 2022. His body was then taken for an autopsy by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

According to a copy of the autopsy report obtained by People on Monday (July 18, 2022), the coroner ruled that the cause of death for Jak Knight was suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

So we have definitive proof that Jak Knight did not die from COVID-19 vaccination, but is yet another sad example of suicide by gun.

Let this autopsy report be the last word on Jak Knight’s cause of death. He died from suicide, not the COVID-19 vaccine.

He now joins a long list of celebrities whose deaths / injuries have been falsely blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines.

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

Truth : Jak Knight Did NOT Die From COVID-19 Side Effects!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity 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 : Jak Knight Died At Home

First, let us establish what is known so far about Jak Knight’s death, which isn’t much.

  • He died on Thursday night, July 14, 2022
  • He was 28 years old when he died
  • He was found on a Los Angeles embankment.

His death was confirmed by a representative for Knight’s family :

Knight’s loved ones ask that their privacy please be respected during this extremely difficult time.

Fact #2 : Jak Knight’s Cause Of Death Was Suicide

Jak Knight died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, that was ruled as a suicide by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

So we know for sure that he didn’t die from COVID-19 side effects, or died in his sleep as a case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, as alleged by anti-vaccination activists.

Read more : Jak Knight – Cause Of Death Was Suicide, Not Vaccine!

Fact #3 : Unknown If Jak Knight Was Even Vaccinated

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

One “celebrity blog” that often posts unverified rumours claimed that “Jak Knight was vaccinated and during the times of the vaccination exercise, he was a strong advocate for people to take the vaccine.without offering any evidence.

I personally could find not a single instance of Jak Knight ever talking about COVID-19 vaccination.

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.

Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Jak Knight was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses 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.

Malaysia Offers 2nd Booster To 50+ Years + Travellers!

Malaysia is now offering the 2nd booster dose to those who are 50 years or older, as well as people planning to travel overseas!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Earlier : Malaysia Gives 2nd Booster Dose To High-Risk Individuals!

Back in mid-April 2022, the Malaysia Ministry of Health (KKM) offered a second booster dose to high-risk individuals :

  • High-risk senior citizens aged 60 years and above, with co-morbidities like
    – diabetes
    – chronic lung disease
    – chronic renal disease, underlying dialysis
    – chronic liver disease
    – cerebrovascular disease
    – heart failure, ischaemic heart disease, cardiomyopathy
    – chronic neurological diseases
    – BMI of over 40
    – residents of long-term care facilities
  • Individuals who received the Sinovac or Sinopharm booster dose for travel purposes
  • Healthy senior citizens are advised to consult a doctor for second booster dose recommendation

Read more : Second Booster Dose Offered To High-Risk Individuals!

 

Now : Malaysia Gives 2nd Booster To 50+ Years + Travellers!

On 19 July 2022, the Malaysia Minister of Health, Khairy Jamaluddin, announced that the government will now offer the 2nd booster dose to :

  • individuals those who are 50 years and older, even if they do not have co-morbidities, and
  • individuals who are planning to travel overseas

The group in the 50-59 age bracket without any chronic diseases and anyone 50 and below who wants to travel overseas can receive second vaccine boosters.

As announced earlier, the second booster dose will continue to be offered to high-risk individuals living in long-term care facilities, adults 18 years and older with co-morbidities, and COVID-19 frontliners.

The second booster dose will be the Pfizer COMIRNATY vaccine, and it will be given :

  • at least 4-6 months after the first booster dose for senior citizens,
  • at least 3 months after recovery for senior citizens who had a COVID-19 infection,
  • and at least 1 month after the first booster dose for Sinovac / SInopharm recipients.

This second booster dose is optional, and is not compulsory. Your vaccination status will not change, whether you take the second booster dose or not.

You can either book your booster dose appointment on MySejahtera, or look for a nearby private healthcare facility offering a booster dose.

These booster doses are offered for FREE by the Malaysian government, as part of the PICK vaccination programme.

 

Why 2nd Booster Dose For Travellers Leaving Malaysia?

Even though many countries have opened up their economies, and even to travellers; the COVID-19 pandemic isn’t over.

Many countries are now facing spikes in COVID-19 cases, thanks to new Omicron subvariants that are highly contagious, and evade protection from both previous infections and vaccinations.

Thus, a second booster dose before travelling overseas will offer a short  but useful boost in antibodies that could protect travellers as they fly out of Malaysia into other countries.

This is particularly important for those who received the Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines. Both Chinese vaccines offer markedly lower protection, which quickly wane over a matter of weeks.

A Yale University study, for example, showed that Sinovac vaccine recipients will require TWO Pfizer booster doses, to adequately protect against the Omicron variant.

Therefore, if you received Sinovac / Sinopharm vaccine earlier, I highly recommend that you get the booster doses, even if you are not planning to travel overseas.

Read more : Why Sinovac recipients may need TWO Pfizer booster doses!

There is also a more practical consideration for people travelling overseas – some countries in Europe do not recognise the Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines, both as a primary series vaccine or a booster dose.

Therefore, they will be allowed to obtain a second booster dose, at least one month after receiving their first booster dose.

Did Tom Jones Collapse From Vaccine Side Effects?!

Did veteran singer Tom Jones postponed his Budapest show after he collapsed from vaccine side effects?!

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

 

Claim : Tom Jones Collapsed From Vaccine Side Effects!

Right after news broke that Tom Jones postponed his show in Budapest, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that it was because he collapsed from vaccine side effects.

Sir Tom Jones collapses after taking jab in Budapest

Celebrity Tom Jones collapses after second dose of Covid-19 jab

and the latest victim of the jab…tonite Tom Jones has collapsed in Budapest

yes – vaccine development requires a trial period to elapse prior to rollout and apparently thats you.

How do you explain all the collapses? Tom Jones, Carlos Santana and Alan Carr – all this week alone.

Novak Djokovic is fine btw

Read more : Did Paul Ryder Die From Vaccine On Day Of Concert?!

 

Tom Jones Did NOT Collapse From Vaccine Side Effects!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity 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 : Tom Jones Postponed His Budapest Concert

Tom Jones was scheduled to perform at a concert in Budapest on July 12, 2022, as part of his European and UK tour.

However, he cancelled it at the last minute, and rescheduled the concert of August 16, 2022.

It was that announcement that set off the “firestorm” of claims that he collapsed due for COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Fact #2 : Tom Jones Had Viral Laryngitis, Not Vaccine Side Effects!

The truth is – Tom Jones did not collapse from vaccine side effects. He had to postpone his concert because he came down with viral laryngitis.

Tom Jones actually explained what really happened in a tweet on the early morning of the next day – Wednesday, July 13, 2022 :

Hello to all concerned: I travelled last night from the UK to Budapest and woke this morning with an uncomfortable throat.

A specialist came to visit and diagnosed ‘viral laryngitis’. He strongly advised postponing this evening’s show and prescribed medication and vocal rest.

I did NOT ‘collapse; anywhere at any time, that is pure rumour. Hopefully the inflammation will calm soon as I am looking forward to continuing my wonderful summer tour.

Unfortunately the show had to be cancelled at the last minute, and for that I am very sorry. However, the show in Budapest has been rescheduled and will take place on August 16. Thanks again for all your kind concern.

TJ

Fact #3 : Tom Jones Continued On His Tour Two Days Later

Tom Jones recovered from his viral laryngitis and resumed his tour, with a concert in Luxembourg on July 14, followed by Italy (July 16), and Croatia (July 18).

He will be performing in Germany on July 20, and then return to the UK for two concerts – in Carlisle on July 24 and Scarborough on July 26.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim, Tom Jones is well enough to continue with his tour.

Fact #4 : Tom Jones Was Vaccinated In December 2020

Tom Jones was once of the first to get vaccinated in December 2020, when the first COVID-19 vaccines were administered.

He joked about it on the Jools’s Holland’s Annual Hootenanny Show on Thursday, 31 December 2020 :

I’ve had my jab already. That’s one good thing about being 80, you’re first in line for the jab.

It was fine, it was like getting the flu jab.

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

Tom Jones was fully vaccinated in December 2020, and would have received his booster dose by the end of 2021 – more than 6 months earlier.

He cannot possibly collapse 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 : 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 #7 : 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!

Read more : Antivax Steve Kirsch Admits He’s Fully-Vaccinated!

Fact #8 : 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.

Bob Saget Died From Head Trauma, Not Vaccine!

It is official – Bob Saget died from blunt head trauma, and not his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Antivaxxers Claim Bob Saget Died From Vaccine Booster Dose!

Right after Bob Saget was reported to have died in his Orlando, Florida hotel room, antivaxxers immediately claimed that he died from his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Bob Saget died from vaccine complications in his hotel room, on the first night of his fully vaccinated comedy tour.

He just received his COVID booster a few weeks ago.

Another victim of the jab.

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

 

Bob Saget Died From Head Trauma, Not Vaccine!

I had earlier written a fact check article explaining why it was simply NOT POSSIBLE for Bob Saget to have died from the COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

Well, it’s official – Bob Saget died from a blunt head trauma, not his COVID-19 vaccine dose!

On 10 February 2022, his family issued a statement announcing that (with my emphasis in bold) :

The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma. They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved.

As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office conducted an autopsy of his body a month ago, and issued this statement (my emphasis in bold) :

An autopsy was performed on Robert Lane Saget, a 65-year-old male. Mr. Saget was found unresponsive in his hotel room, on January 10, 2022. All testing and further studies have now been completed.

In consideration of the circumstances surrounding the death and after examination of the body, toxicology analysis, histology, and a respiratory pathogen panel, it is my opinion that the death of Mr. Saget, was the result of blunt head trauma. His injuries were most likely incurred from an unwitnessed fall. A toxicology analysis did not reveal any illicit drugs or toxins. The manner of death is accident.

Our condolences go out to Mr. Saget’s loved ones during this difficult time.

Now that Bob Saget’s autopsy report has been finalised and confirmed, there can be no doubt – he died from a blunt head trauma, not his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

In other words, he died after hitting the back of his head in an unwitnessed fall. That blunt head trauma could have caused significant brain bleeding that he may not have been aware of.

The autopsy report also revealed other details of the injury, and Bob Saget’s health at the time of death :

  • there was an abrasion on his scalp
  • there was a fracture at the base of his skull
  • there were fractures around his eye sockets
  • there were bleeding in the space between his brain and skull
  • there were bruises to his brain
  • he had Clonazepam (a tranquilliser taken for seizure and anxiety) as well as Trazodone (an anti-depressant) in his system.
  • he had an enlarged heart, which was 95% blocked on one side, and
  • he tested positive for COVID-19, but there was no inflammation in his respiratory system

On March 15, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Orlando released an incident report, which stated that :

  • There were fractures around Bob Saget’s eye sockets, and bleeding around this brain.
  • The injury was caused by Bob Saget hitting “something hard, covered by something soft”, such as a carpeted floor.
  • The impact causing those fractures “would have stunned Mr. Saget”, and he would have experienced dizziness.
  • If there was people present, they would have noticed his “confusion, [lack of] balance and/or slurred speech”.
  • There were also no signs of blood on the hotel bed’s sheets or bedspread.
  • The countertops, tables and nightstands were ruled out, but the floor and bed headboard were lightly padded and are thus the “possible mechanisms of injury”.

A toxicology report showed that Bob Saget did not have any illicit drugs or toxins in his body when he died.

Sadly, his death has been further abused by antivaxxers to drive the fear of COVID-19 vaccines. He now joins Betty White as yet another celebrity whose death was falsely and maliciously attributed to the booster dose.

Will these antivaxxers apologise? Correct themselves? Nope. They will just move on to the next celebrity death.

Now that you know the truth, please SHARE this out, and get VACCINATED against COVID-19!

Did Bob Saget Die From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose?

Did beloved actor and comic Bob Saget die from his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose?

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

Updated @ 2022-03-25 : Added details of his Long COVID symptoms.
Updated @ 2022-02-12 : Added more details of Bob Saget’s autopsy report.
Updated @ 2022-02-11 : Added Bob Saget’s autopsy report
Originally posted @ 2022-01-11

 

Claim : Bob Saget Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose!

Antivaxxers are claiming that beloved actor and comic Bob Saget died from his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose!

Bob Saget died from vaccine complications in his hotel room, on the first night of his fully vaccinated comedy tour.

He just received his COVID booster a few weeks ago.

Another victim of the jab.

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

 

Truth : Bob Saget Did NOT Die 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 WhiteBob Saget did NOT die from the COVID-19 booster dose, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Bob Saget Died From COVID-19 Vaccine

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

The articles they shared as “evidence” do not mention that Saget died from the COVID-19 vaccine, only that he was found dead in his Orlando hotel room on 9 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 Betty White died from the COVID-19 booster dose

Read more : Did Betty White Die From COVID-19 Booster Dose?

Fact #2 : Bob Saget Was Infected With COVID-19

Bob Saget was once infected with COVID-19, and he spoke about how bad it was on a podcast – A Corporate Time with Tom & Dan, just 4 days before his death.

It is not good, it does not feel good. I don’t know if I had Delta or … I might have had a combo.

Maybe at one point they [Delta and Omicron] were working together.

It should be noted that Saget only spoke about the pain of his COVID-19 infection, and never complained about vaccine side effects.

In fact, he joked about the vaccine and called for people to get vaccinated:

I get vaccinated five to six times a day and I feel great!!

Please people, I don’t wanna preach, but please get your visine today. Sorry, auto-correct— I meant vaccine… Help save eyes…Sorry, damn this auto-correct!  I meant save lives.

According to his autopsy report, Saget was COVID-19 positive at the time of his death. However, that may not mean he had an active infection, as a PCR test can detect COVID-19 weeks after an infection.

Fact #3 : Bob Saget Had His Booster Dose A Month Earlier

Bob Saget was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, and mentioned in his December 13, 2021 podcast, that he got his booster dose a day or two earlier :

I try not to preach you know about — I got my booster shot, I’m 65, so I got it yesterday — day before — and I was hurting… I’ve been telling people I got it in my ass.

If he suffered any adverse effects from the booster dose, they not only would have happened earlier, they would have prevented him from going on a tour.

Yet, Saget not only kicked off his standup comedy tour, he also went on the podcast with Tom & Dan just 4 days before his death.

Saget also tweeted about how great he felt, right after his Jacksonville show and just hours before his death…

Fact #4 : Bob Saget Died From Blunt Head Trauma

All deaths in Orange County (where Orlando is located) are investigated by the homicide unit, and so, an autopsy was performed on his body.

Bob Saget’s official cause of death has been revealed by his family and the Orange County government on 10 February 2022.

His family issued a statement announcing that (with my emphasis in bold) :

The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma. They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved.

As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter.

Joshua Stephany MD, the Chief Medical Examiner for the Orange and Osceola Counties issued this statement (my emphasis in bold) :

An autopsy was performed on Robert Lane Saget, a 65-year-old male. Mr. Saget was found unresponsive in his hotel room, on January 10, 2022. All testing and further studies have now been completed.

In consideration of the circumstances surrounding the death and after examination of the body, toxicology analysis, histology, and a respiratory pathogen panel, it is my opinion that the death of Mr. Saget, was the result of blunt head trauma. His injuries were most likely incurred from an unwitnessed fall. A toxicology analysis did not reveal any illicit drugs or toxins. The manner of death is accident.

Our condolences go out to Mr. Saget’s loved ones during this difficult time.

The autopsy report also revealed other details of the injury, and Bob Saget’s health at the time of death :

  • there was an abrasion on his scalp
  • there was a fracture at the base of his skull
  • there were fractures around his eye sockets
  • there were bleeding in the space between his brain and skull
  • there were bruises to his brain
  • he had Clonazepam (a tranquilliser taken for seizure and anxiety) as well as Trazodone (an anti-depressant) in his system
  • he had an enlarged heart, which was 95% blocked on one side, and
  • he tested positive for COVID-19, but there was no inflammation in his respiratory system

Joshua Stephany MD

On March 15, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Orlando released an incident report, which stated that :

  • There were fractures around Bob Saget’s eye sockets, and bleeding around this brain.
  • The injury was caused by Bob Saget hitting “something hard, covered by something soft”, such as a carpeted floor.
  • The impact causing those fractures “would have stunned Mr. Saget”, and he would have experienced dizziness.
  • If there was people present, they would have noticed his “confusion, [lack of] balance and/or slurred speech”.
  • There were also no signs of blood on the hotel bed’s sheets or bedspread.
  • The countertops, tables and nightstands were ruled out, but the floor and bed headboard were lightly padded and are thus the “possible mechanisms of injury”.

A toxicology report showed that Bob Saget did not have any illicit drugs or toxins in his body when he died.

Fact #5 : He May Have Been Suffering From Long COVID

On 24 March 2022, it was revealed that Rosalie Cocci – the lead producer of Saget’s show at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall – told Orange County police that Saget was having a hard time recovering from Long COVID-19.

I did hear him say, ‘I don’t feel good but I’m ready to do the show. This is what I do this for.’ He kinda seemed like he was talking himself up.

He stated himself that… it was taking his body a long time to get over [COVID]. He said that his hearing had been off and that was the case that night. He was asking the sound guys to turn everything up.

He said he had been sick the night before, he said he had a sore throat, that he was happy he had lozenges for the stage.

Despite that, Cocci told the police that Saget “seemed okay” and he was able to complete his set without any issues :

He wasn’t sweating, he didn’t miss a beat, nothing slurred. He seemed okay. He really did and it was very surprising the next day… He came out very energetic, and in the half-an-hour, I saw him, he was very much entertaining the crowd.

 

Bob Saget Won’t Be Last Celebrity To Be Abused By Antivaxxers

Now that Bob Saget’s autopsy report has been finalised and confirmed, there can be no doubt that he died from a blunt head trauma, not his COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.

He died after hitting the back of his head in an unwitnessed fall – the blunt head trauma causing significant brain bleeding that he may not have been aware of.

Sadly, his death has been further abused by antivaxxers to drive the fear of COVID-19 vaccines. He now joins Betty White as yet another celebrity whose death was falsely and maliciously attributed to the booster dose.

Will these antivaxxers apologise? Correct themselves? Nope. They will just move on to the next celebrity death.

Did Paul Ryder Die From Vaccine On Day Of Concert?!

Did Paul Ryder die from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine just hours before a concert?!

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

 

Claim : Paul Ryder Died From COVID-19 Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Happy Mondays bass guitarist Paul Ryder died, people starting to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

Many insisted that he is “yet another” case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.

Paul Ryder drops dead after being forced to take jab for musician visa

New sudden death. Paul Ryder the bassist of Happy Mondays dies. Vaccine the cause of death, quite probably.

Paul Ryder, Happy Mondays bassist, dies aged 58
From FB 14th April 2021 – Paul Ryder from LGBT sparkle Woverhampton “IVE HAD MY VACCINE HAVE YOU HAD YOURS”

Read more : Ray Liotta : Cause Of Death Not COVID-19 Or Vaccine!

 

No Evidence Paul Ryder Died From COVID-19 SADS!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity 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 : Paul Ryder Died On July 15, 2022

First, let us establish what is known so far about Paul Ryder’s death, which isn’t much.

His brother and frontman of the band Happy Mondays, Shaun Ryder, announced that he died on the morning of July 15, 2022.

The Ryder family and Happy Mondays band members are deeply saddened and shocked to say that Paul Ryder passed away this morning

A true pioneer and legend. He will be forever missed ❤️

We thank you for respecting the privacy of all concerned at this time.

Long live his funk x

Fact #2 : Paul Ryder Died Hours Before Show

While Paul Ryder was a heroin addict for over 20 years, he claimed that he never suffered any adverse effect until he was diagnosed with ADHD in 2021 :

I was a heroin addict for 20-odd years, but there’s been no damage off that. I’ve never had anything wrong with me until I was 53.

He was also scheduled to play on the day he died, at the Kubix Festival in Sunderland. That suggests that he was not sick, and was healthy enough to play.

Fact #3 : Paul Ryder’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown

Paul Ryder’s family and band only announced his death, but did not mention a cause of death. That means NO ONE KNOWS (at this time) what he died from.

Let me be clear – his cause of death was not revealed. That does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects”.

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

Fact #4 : Unknown If Paul Ryder Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Paul Ryder 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 Kingdom, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Some anti-vaccination activists claimed that Paul Ryder stated on February 14, 2021 that he was vaccinated, and encouraged other people to get vaccinated – “I’ve had my vaccine, have you had yours?

I traced the claim to a video posted by LGBT+ Sparkle social group on April 29, 2021. As the screenshot shows, this Paul Ryder is a much younger man from Wolverhampton.

Paul Ryder of the band, Happy Mondays, is a much older 53 year-old man from Manchester.

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

Even if Paul Ryder was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses 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 #6 : 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 #7 : 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!

Read more : Antivax Steve Kirsch Admits He’s Fully-Vaccinated!

Fact #8 : 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 tragedy…

Is Lianhua Qingwen More Effective Than Paxlovid?!

Is the Chinese herbal medicine Lianhua Qingwen more effective than the Pfizer Paxlovid antiviral combination?!

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

 

Claim : Lianhua Qingwen Is More Effective Than Paxlovid!

People are sharing a link to a Bloomberg called “Pfizer’s Covid Pill Doesn’t Work For Healthier Patients, Will Focus On Those With higher Risk”, together with this message :

Pfizer scams the world with US$22 billion in sales of Paxlovid to treat Covid.
Now finds that Paxlovid does not work and may cause rebound of disease.
Malaysia has ordered 200,000 doses at a cost of RM500 million –
RM2,500 per dose compared to a few bucks for China’s effective Lian Hwa pills.

 

Truth : Paxlovid Is More Effective Than Lianhua Qingwen!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) as part of their campaign to support Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Paxlovid Is Combination Of Two Antiviral Drugs

Pfizer PAXLOVID is an antiviral treatment that consists of two protease inhibitors :

  • two 150 mg tablets of Nirmatrelvir (the new protease inhibitor developed by Pfizer)
  • one 100 mg tablet of Ritonavir (an old antiviral approved in 1996)

Protease inhibitors work by binding to proteolytic enzymes used by the SARS-CoV-2 virus to replicate. This prevents the virus from replicating in the infected cells, stopping the infection and preventing transmission.

Drug combinations like this offer a synergistic effect, above and beyond their individual abilities. In this combination, ritonavir helps to slow down the breakdown of nirmatrelvir, allowing it to remain in the body for a longer period at higher concentrations.

Fact #2 : Paxlovid Was Proven To Work Against COVID-19

Unlike Lianhua Qingwen, Paxlovid underwent and passed an actual randomised double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial.

In the EPIC-HR clinical trial, Paxlovid was shown to reduce hospitalisation or death from COVID-19 by 88%, compared to placebo.

That statistically significant result was why the US FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) for Paxlovid on December 22, 2021.

The EUA allows Paxlovid to be used for the treatment of mild-to-moderate COVID-19 in adults and children 12 years and older, who are at high risk of developing severe COVID-19.

Read more : Did Cornell Name Ivermectin Most Effective Drug vs. Omicron?

Fact #3 : Paxlovid EPIC-HR Trial Involved High-Risk Patients

I should point out that the EPIC-HR trial involved adults who have a high risk of developing severe COVID-19 :

  • 18 years and older with a risk factor for developing severe COVID-19, or
  • 60 years and older, regardless of chronic medical conditions

All these patients also were not vaccinated against COVID-19, which puts them at higher risk of developing severe COVID-19.

Fact #4 : Paxlovid Not Effective In Normal Risk Patients

After successfully proving that Paxlovid worked for patients who are at high risk of developing severe COVID-19, Pfizer tested it on “standard risk patients”.

Their study showed a 51% relative risk reduction of developing severe COVID-19, which was not statistically significant.

That was why Pfizer halted further enrolment in its Paxlovid trial for “standard risk patients”, which are people who do not have co-morbidities – health conditions that put them at risk of developing severe COVID-19.

This “failure” actually shows the value of running clinical tests, before approving any drug. Unlike Paxlovid though, Lianhua Qingwen did not undergo any clinical trial to prove that it can treat or prevent COVID-19.

Fact #5 : Lianhua Qingwen Not Proven To Work Against COVID-19

Lianhua Qingwen (连花清瘟) has been heavily promoted by the Chinese government and the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), leading to massive sales in the global Chinese diaspora.

It then gained oversized importance when both Hong Kong and Shanghai distributed boxes of these capsules to help stave off the surge of COVID-19 in both cities.

Yet, the mass distribution of Lianhua Qingwen has done nothing to stop the spread of COVID-19 in both cities.

That’s because, unlike Paxlovid, there never was any evidence that Lianhua Qingwen can treat or prevent COVID-19.

Its main “call to fame” was a small Chinese study conducted early during the pandemic, which showed that it had only a modest effect on symptom recovery :

  • time to recover from fever : 2 days, instead of 3 days
  • time to recover from fatigue : 3 days, instead of 6 days
  • time to recover from coughing : 7 days, instead of 10 days

There was NO DIFFERENCE in the viral load, or the risk of developing severe COVID-19.

In other words – Lianhua Qingwen only helped to reduce symptoms, and was no different from taking over-the-counter drugs like paracetamol.

Read more : Did US NCBI Confirm Lianhua Qingwen Treats COVID-19?

Fact #6 : Lianhua Qingwen Should Not Be Taken To Prevent COVID-19

Official Chinese media outlets like CGTN and China Daily have falsely claimed that that Lianhua Qingwen was “proven effective for the treatment of COVID-19” and that it was “approved to treat [COVID-19] virus”.

However, Lianhua Qingwen cannot prevent COVID-19, and should not be taken on a long-term basis to prevent it, due to potential side effects.

The medicine could cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and rash.

Fang Bangjiang, doctor from Long Hua Hospital of the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said that Lianhua Qingwen has complex ingredients and is mainly suitable for COVID-19 patients with mild symptoms of fever and pneumonia but unsuitable for prevention.

Its ingredients will affect the renal system.

Fact #7 : Chinese Official Admits Lianhua Qingwen Cannot Kill Coronavirus

When Chinese Deputy Consul General in Vancouver, Kong Weiwei, was confronted about these claims, he said that people should be “mature enough” to do their own research and understand that Lianhua Qingwen cannot kill the COVID-19 virus :

They’re not babies. We don’t want to be like a nanny telling every one of them that these [Lianhua Qingwen capsules] cannot kill the virus.

Fact #8 : Singapore HSA Warns Against Lianhua Qingwen Claims

The Singapore Health Sciences Authority (HSA) continues to warn the public not to believe the many misleading claims made about Lianhua Qingwen’s ability to treat or prevent COVID-19.

To date, there is no scientific evidence from randomised clinical trials to show that any herbal product, including Lianhua Qingwen products, can be used to prevent or treat COVID-19.

All herbal products formulated for common cold and flu, including CPM, should only be used to manage symptoms such as headache, runny or blocked nose, sore throat and cough.

We strongly advise members of the public not to fall prey to unsubstantiated claims or spread unfounded rumours that herbal products can be used to prevent or treat COVID-19.

Anti-vaccination activists are excitedly posting that Dr. Anthony Fauci just admitted that COVID-19 vaccines don’t work “overly well”. Here are some examples on social media.

Fauci says “vaccines” don’t work “overly well” still blames vaccines and not the attenuated Omicron variant for his weak symptoms.

Well there you go! – Dr Antony Fauci admits Covid vaccines don’t work ‘overly well’

Dr Antony Fauci admits Covid vaccines don’t work ‘overly well’ at stopping infection in a interview with Fox News. The revelation follows the admission by the Australian government that the vaccines only provide modest protection. #Moderna #Pfizer #COVID

 

Dr. Fauci Said Vaccines Work Well Against Severe COVID-19 + Death!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Dr. Fauci Said Vaccines Work Well Against Severe COVID-19 + Death

First, let me confirm that Dr. Fauci said that the COVID-19 vaccines “don’t protect overly well against infection“, but that was what we have long known.

What anti-vaccination activists don’t tell you is that he was pointing out that the COVID-19 vaccines “protect quite well against severe disease leading to hospitalisation and death”.

Dr. Fauci was also referring to the high transmissibility of the current Omicron variant, which makes it much easier to infect people, compared to previous variants.

One of the things that’s clear from the data [is] that even though vaccines – because of the high degree of transmissibility of this virus – don’t protect overly well against infection, they protect quite well against severe disease leading to hospitalisation and death.

Fact #2 : Dr. Anthony Fauci Only Has Mild COVID-19 Symptoms

Dr. Anthony Fauci was explaining how being vaccinated protected him from developing severe COVID-19.

He tested positive for COVID-19 on June 15, 2022, but experienced only mild symptoms, despite his age.

I believe that’s the reason why at my age, being vaccinated and boosted, even though it didn’t protect me against infection, I feel confident that it made a major role in protecting me from progressing to severe disease. And that’s very likely why I had a relatively mild course.

Despite claims that he died from COVID-19, Dr. Fauci had mild COVID-19, and was well enough to work from home. He even testified at the Senate HELP hearing on June 16, 2022; where he verbally sparred with Senator Rand Paul.

Fact #3 : Vaccines Were Designed To Prevent Hospitalisation + Death

Anti-vaccination activists always harped on the fact that fully-vaccinated people can still get infected.

But what they don’t tell you is that – the COVID-19 vaccines were never designed to prevent infections. They were designed to prevent hospitalisation and death from COVID-19.

If you look at Phase 3 trial results of any COVID-19 vaccine, you will see that their efficacy is listed as :

  • protection against symptomatic disease
  • protection against severe disease
  • protection against death

None of the COVID-19 vaccine efficacy studies will ever mention protection against infection. That’s because the COVID-19 vaccines approved so far develop antibodies in the blood and body fluids, not in the mucosal tissues of the mouth and nose.

Thus, those antibodies will only start to work once a COVID-19 infection spreads enough to come into contact. But once they do, these antibodies will latch onto the viruses, and block them from attacking your cells.

That’s why a fully-vaccinated and boosted person may test positive for COVID-19, and even develop mild disease; but will have strong protection against severe disease and death from COVID-19.

Fact #4 : Dr. Fauci Stressed The Effectiveness Of Vaccination

Dr. Fauci was pointing out that while COVID-19 vaccines may not prevent infections by highly-infectious variants like the new Omicron BA.5, they will prevent you from developing a more severe disease.

My message to people who seem confused because people who are vaccinated get infected – the answer is if you weren’t vaccinated, the likelihood [is] you would have had [a] more severe course than you did have when you were vaccinated.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccines Proven Safe + Effective

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim, COVID-19 vaccines have proven to be both safe and effective in preventing severe infections and deaths.

The RECoVaM study, for example, showed that the vast majority of people who died from COVID-19 were either unvaccinated, or partially vaccinated.

So stop believing in the lies being peddled by anti-vaccination activists. Protect yourself and your family, by vaccinating against COVID-19!

Marion Barber III Died From Heat Stroke, Not 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 : Police Found Marion Barber III Dead At Home

On Wednesday, 1 June 2022, a tenant complained about water leaking from Marion Barber III’s apartment. However, apartment staff were unable to contact Barber, and his apartment was locked from the inside.

The Frisco, Texas police was then asked to conduct a welfare check. When they forced their way into the apartment and found 38 year-old Marion Barber III dead.

The police incident report noted that family members had not heard from Barber for six days before his body was found. They also noted that Barber “was known to have a history of medical problems and mental health concerns“.

Fact #2 : Autopsy Report Confirmed Marion Barber III Died From Heat Stroke

The Collin County Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled that the Marion Barber III died from a heat stroke, according to his autopsy report. His death was ruled to be an accident.

According to the autopsy report, police officers found exercise equipment in his unit, and that one of the bathtub faucets in Barber’s apartment was left running with the temperature set to 91°F (33°F).

The coroner noted in his report, “Mr. Barber was known to exercise in sauna-like conditions“.

This autopsy report conclusively confirmed that the cause of death for Marion Barber III was a heat stroke, not the COVID-19 vaccine.
