Why woman on treadmill did not die suddenly from vaccine!

A video of a woman collapsing after running on a treadmill has gone viral.

Take a look at the viral video, and find out why she did not die from the COVID-19 vaccine!

 

Claim : Woman On Treadmill Died Suddenly From Vaccine!

People are sharing a video of a woman collapsing after running on a treadmill, claiming or suggesting that she just died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine!

DiedSuddenly : Welcome to the new normal.

Truth : Woman On Treadmill Did Not Die Suddenly From Vaccine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on X (formerly Twitter), and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded In China

Let me start by pointing out that the video was recorded on 9 May 2023, in Guangzhou, China. It is important to note that China exclusively uses its own COVID-19 vaccines, instead of Western vaccines.

These Chinese COVID-19 vaccines are based on older technologies – the most common are the Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines, which use old inactivated virus vaccine technology that some anti-vaccine proponents claim are “much safer” than mRNA vaccines used in Western countries.

The truth is – all approved COVID-19 vaccines have successfully completed their clinical trials, proving that they are both safe and effective. They also continue to be monitored for safety and efficacy.

Fact #2 : The Woman Did Not Die

I should also point out that that the unnamed woman did not die. The woman actually regain her composure within two minutes of resting on the floor. So claims that she “died suddenly” are false.

Fact #3 : The Woman Had Low Blood Sugar

In that incident, a gym fitness coach who was passing by noticed that the woman was unsteady on the treadmill. He quickly stepped in to support and guide her off the treadmill to sit down on the floor. The video cuts off at that point.

It was revealed later that the woman was exercising on an empty stomach, leading to a drop in her blood sugar level. She recovered her composure within two minutes of resting.

The fitness coach, who was identified as Mr. Liu, advised people to maintain a balanced diet, and engage in appropriate exercise for safer and more effective workouts.

The incident was even covered by USA Today (source) on 25 May 2023.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Woman Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

While China has a high COVID-19 vaccination rate of just over 87%, it was not mandatory. That’s why a significant percentage of the population – just under 13% remain unvaccinated.

It is unknown if the woman on the treadmill was vaccinated against COVID-19. People who claim that the woman in the video was vaccinated against COVID-19 certainly offered no evidence.

Fact #5 : COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Days

Even if the woman on the treadmill was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, it does not mean she suffered any vaccine side effect. After all, she would have received her doses more than two years ago!

She cannot possibly be suffering from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not many months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #6 : People Have Collapsed Long Before COVID-19 Vaccines!

While anti-vaccine activists often claim that such collapses have never, or rarely, happened, before the COVID-19 vaccines were introduced, that’s really not true.

People have been collapsing for all sorts of reasons – hypotension, hypoglycaemia, vasovagal syncope, prolonged standing, dehydration, seizures, etc.

In fact, the infamous Died Suddenly movie actually showcased people who collapsed even though they were not vaccinated against COVID-19!

  • Florida Gators star, Keynote Johnson, who collapsed during a basketball game
  • Austrian journalist, Rosa Lyon, who collapsed on TV three months before COVID-19 was discovered!

Fact #7 : Many Deaths + Collapses Had Nothing To Do With Vaccines!

In addition, many people whose collapses and deaths were blamed on the COVID-19 vaccine were actually unvaccinated.

  • Footballer Christian Eriksen was unvaccinated when he collapsed during a game
  • Ohio Republican rep Kris Jordan died suddenly even though he was unvaccinated, and anti-vaccine.
  • Celebrity Aaron Carter was unvaccinated when he suddenly died in his bathtub.
  • Actress Kirstie Alley whose death was blamed on “turbo cancer” was unvaccinated.
  • MMA fighter Stephan Bonnar whose sudden death was blamed on vaccines, was unvaccinated and died from a drug overdose.
  • Canadian musician Shane Macaulay is unvaccinated and anti-vaccine, but had his viral seizure blamed on COVID-19 vaccines!

There are other examples, but you get the drift – it’s best not to blame the COVID-19 vaccine for every single collapse, injury, or death.

The truth is – tens of billions of COVID-19 vaccine doses have already been administered worldwide, and they have proven to be safe and effective for the vast majority of people who took them.

Why Siddhaanth Surryavanshi Died In Gym Workout!

Find out if the viral claims about why Indian actor, Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi, died during his gym workout are true!

 

Claim : Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Right after news broke that Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi collapsed and died while exercising at the gym, anti-vaccination activists immediately claim that the Indian television actor died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

🇮🇳L’acteur indien Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi (46 ans) est décédé subitement alors qu’il s’entraînait dans une salle de sport. Il laisse sa femme, ses 2 enfants et ses fans adorateurs

Truth : Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi Did NOT Die From 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 : Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi Died From Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi (born 15 December 1975) and also known as Anand Suryavanshi, suddenly collapsed and lost consciousness while working out in a gym at around 11 AM on Friday, 11 November 2022.

He was rushed to the Kokilaben Ambani Hospital in Andheri, Mumbai, where doctors tried but failed to revive him for 40 minutes, and he was declared dead.

While earlier reports stated that Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi died of a heart attack, the cause of death was later determined to be sudden cardiac arrest.

In other words – he did not die from a COVID-19 vaccine side effect. Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi died from cardiac arrest.

Fact #2 : Alesia Raut Never Blamed Vaccine For His Death

His wife, model Alesia Raut, posted on Instagram about Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi’s death, sharing a photo of their first picture together.

In her tribute to him, she only spoke of his love for her and his two kids. She never once mentioned, or blamed, the COVID-19 vaccine for his death.

Therefore, it is really odd that anti-vaccination activists would claim that Siddhaanth died from the COVID-19 vaccine. Do they know better than his own wife?

Fact #3 : Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi Is Likely Vaccinated

As far as I’m aware, Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi did not share any photos of his COVID-19 vaccination, or share when he got vaccinated against COVID-19.

However, it is very likely that Siddhaanth is fully-vaccinated, as he stated on 6 January 2022, that he was looking forward to getting his daughter, Diza, and his son, Mark, vaccinated against COVID-19.

He also encouraged other Indian citizens to get their children vaccinated against COVID-19.

Instead of panicking or hoarding stuff, groceries etc, we should be kind and be thoughtful about others. I take this opportunity to urge people to complete their vaccinations. And the good news is that the vaccine for kids is now available! I feel relaxed and sorted that my children will soon be safe and get their vaccines.

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

Even if Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi 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 : Cardiac Arrest Is A Common Cause Of Sudden Death

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that healthy people do not suddenly die from cardiac arrest.

The truth is – people have been dying from cardiac arrest since time immemorial, long before any vaccine was invented.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year.

Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

In Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi’s case, he was performing strenuous exercise in a gym, which is when cardiac arrest occurs most frequently.

That’s why many states in the United States enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Causes Of Death

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s a heart attack, cardiac arrest or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will die from other causes of death.

It is therefore ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame all deaths of fully-vaccinated people on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.

Fact #7 : 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. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

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

Marion Barber III : Cause Of Death Not Vaccine SADS!

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber III died from a heat stroke, not the COVID-19 vaccine!

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

 

Claim : Marion Barber III Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!

People keep claiming that former Dallas Cowboys running back, Marion Barber III, 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.

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

Marion Barber III Died Due To Heat Stroke, Officials Say – sounds more like SAD SUDDEN ADULT DEATH SYNDROME !! I am very sorry for this unexpected loss and for his family. #SAD #COVID #VACCINE

When your child dies from the vaccine, you are a bad parent. Do not deserve the pleasure of having offspring. #StoptheShots For more see blm loving, jab mandate enforcing #NFL

TOTALLY normal, nothing to see here, not at ALL related to the COVID Vaccine, along with Ray Liotta and Andrew Fletcher. Marion Barber, former Dallas Cowboys running back, dead at 38 #COVID19 #COVIDVACCINE #VaccineSideEffects #rayliotta #andrewfletcher

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

 

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.

Fact #3 : Marion Barber III Did Not Die In His Sleep

Many anti-vaccination activists claimed that Marion Barber III died in his sleep from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

As the autopsy report confirmed – Marion Barber III died while exercising in sauna-like conditions, not while he was sleeping.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Marion Barber III Was Even Vaccinated

It is currently unknown if Marion Barber III was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccines.

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 #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Marion Barber III 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!

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.

Shebby Singh Received Booster Dose 2 Days Before He Died?

Did former national footballer Shebby Singh get vaccinated with the booster dose 2 days before he died?

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

 

Claim : Shebby Singh Received Booster Dose 2 Days Before He Died!

A blogger who calls himself Fernz The Great (real name : Joe Fernandez) posted an article claiming that that former footballer Shebby Singh died from the booster dose he received 2 days earlier.

This was then shared on WhatsApp where it went viral. Fernz The Great also posted it on LinkedIn.

BREAKING NEWS! … Shebby Singh had booster dose two days before he died …

My guess was right ..
Only that they didn’t say what booster vaccine he took but I can more or less say it’s Pfzier since a lot of people who took Pfzier are now having myocarditis ..

UPDATE . . . It seems that Shebby Singh had the booster dose two days before he died.

The gov’t will deny he died because of the vaccine.

They will claim that he died after not resting for at least three weeks from the 3rd dose. It’s known from media reports that vaccination, like exercise, affects the heart. The organ may be inflammed temporarily, or permanently, after the vaccine. It won’t be able to cope with exercise carried out within three weeks of a dose.

According to sources in the social media, Singh appeared very tired after the booster dose. That may indicate heart problems and insufficient oxygen intake probably caused by fibrosis i.e. hardening of the lung cells. If fibrosis reaches 50 per cent, the patient will drop dead.

 

Truth : Shebby Singh Did NOT Receive Booster Dose 2 Days Before He Died!

The truth is – Serbegeth Singh (popularly known as Shebby Singh) did NOT receive his booster dose 2 days before he died.

He also did not die from his COVID-19 booster dose, as suggested by Fernz The Great, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Shebby Singh Received Booster Dose 5 Days Prior

Fernz The Great claimed that Shebby received his COVID-19 booster dose 2 days before he died.

The truth is – he received it on 7 January 2022 – 5 days before the incident. This was confirmed by his son, Sonuljit Singh :

He had it on Jan 7 and left us five days later as everyone knows. We do not know what booster shot he had taken as the MySejahtera app had not been updated yet.

Read more : Did Shebby Singh Die From COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose?

Sonuljit Singh and relatives outside the Sultanah Aminah Hospital. Photo credit : Ben Tan, Malay Mail

Fact #2 : Shebby Singh Died From Heart Attack

Sonuljit also confirmed that the post-mortem results showed that his father died from a heart attack, not the booster dose.

“The doctors told us the cause of his death was 99 percent related to a heart attack as his post mortem showed three of his coronary arteries having blockages.

All his vital organs were in perfect working condition, and there were also no signs of any allergic reaction.

His heart was ready to go at any time, and it had nothing to do with the booster shot.”

Fact #3 : Atherosclerosis Takes Time To Build Up

I personally pointed out to Fernz The Great that he was posting misinformation. His response was to point out that Sonuljit said that his “father’s three arteries [were] almost completely blocked!

Fernz The Great is suggesting that the COVID-19 vaccines caused Shebby’s heart arteries to clog up. That’s complete nonsense.

Atherosclerosis is the gradual buildup of plaque (fats, cholesterol and other substances) in and on the artery walls. This happens over a long period of time – years.

Eventually, the plaques grow so big they significantly narrow your arteries, and block blood flow. They can also burst and break off, and cause blood clots.

This takes years to form, and is highly dependent on diet, so it is simply not possible for COVID-19 vaccines to cause.

Fact #4 : Side Effects Are Evidence Of Vaccines Working

Fernz The Great also said (without evidence) that Shebby looked very tired after getting the booster shot, and suggested that it was giving him heart problems and insufficient oxygen intake.

That’s complete and utter nonsense.

Vaccines work by triggering our body’s immune system to identify the pathogen, and make antibodies against it.

Whenever we get vaccinated, we should expect to get some side effects – muscle ache, fever, etc. These side effects generally dissipate quickly, usually within 1-3 days.

That’s our body’s reaction to what it thinks is a real infection. It’s really no different than how our body would behave if we actually got infected.

So, it is not surprising for Shebby to feel unwell for a day or two after getting his COVID-19 vaccination.

Shebby’s son, Sonuljit, has called for people to show some respect to his late father and family, and stop spreading fake news.

Now that you know the truth about Shebby’s death, please STOP sharing Fernz The Great’s fake news, and SHARE this fact check instead!

Booster Dose : What Should YOU Do Before / During / After?

Getting ready for your COVID-19 booster dose vaccination?

Find out what you need to do BEFORE, DURING and AFTER your booster dose vaccination!

 

What Should You Do Before Booster Dose Vaccination?

Just received your COVID-19 booster dose appointment? This is what you need to do BEFORE your COVID-19 vaccination!

Medication?

There are fake messages on social media asking people to stop taking their medications before getting their booster dose vaccination. That is false and dangerous!

You should CONTINUE to take your medication, unless advised otherwise by your doctor.

Dietary / Exercise Restrictions?

There are generally NO restrictions on diet or exercise before your booster dose vaccination, unless your doctor advises otherwise.

However, you should limit or avoid alcohol the day before your vaccination. Excessive alcohol intake can suppress your immune system, and reduce the efficacy of the vaccine.

Painkillers?

You should NOT take painkillers before going for your vaccination.

That’s because painkillers can suppress your immune response, and reduce the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Read more : Can You Take Painkillers Before / After COVID-19 Vaccination?

On Vaccination Day

On the day of your vaccination, please make sure to :

  1. Wear loose and comfortable clothes.
  2. Have a good meal, and drink some water. Don’t drink too much, or you will need to go to the toilet!
  3. Make sure you do NOT have a fever, or any other flu-like symptoms.
    If you are sick, do NOT go to the clinic / hospital.
    Call them up and ask for a new appointment.
  4. Bring a smartphone with MySejahtera installed, if possible (Malaysia only, not compulsory).
  5. You must bring some form of identification – MyKad (Malaysia) or passport.
  6. Bring your medication list, if you need to ask the doctor’s advice at the clinic / hospital.
  7. If you are pregnant, please bring your health record book.
  8. You must wear a face mask, and if possible, wear a face shield.
  9. Bring a bottle of water, in case you get thirsty.
  10. Bring a pen, and something stiff to write on, to fill in the forms.

 

Which Booster Dose Should You Choose?

You may be offered a choice of booster dose, but generally, the COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force – Booster (CITF-B) recommends the Pfizer booster dose.

Using the Pfizer booster dose gives you a big boost in protection, almost equivalent to those who received three doses of the mRNA vaccine.

This is especially important for those who are using less efficacious vaccines like Sinovac and Sinopharm. While a Sinovac booster dose is offered, it will not give you as much protection as a Pfizer or AstraZeneca booster dose.

Read more : Sinovac Booster Dose : Can You Get It? Should You Get It?
Read more :
 Official CITF-B Vaccine Booster Dose Recommendations!

 

What Should You Do During Booster Dose Vaccination?

When you get to the vaccination room or booth, please follow these steps :

  1. Check the label of the vial or prepared syringe, to confirm the vaccine you are receiving. Here in Malaysia, that’s Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac.
  2. The doctor or nurse will show you the syringe, for you to verify that it has the correct volume.
Vaccines Dose Volume
Pfizer COMIRNATY 0.3 ml
AstraZeneca Vaxzevria 0.5 ml
Sinovac CoronaVac 0.5 ml

If a low dead volume (LDV) syringe is used, you should read the volume from the first ring of the plunger, not the top.

Read more : How To Read The Volume Of LDV Syringe Correctly?

  1. Ask that you be allowed to record a video of the vaccination process.
  2. After receiving the injection, the doctor or nurse will show you the syringe, for you to confirm that it is empty.
  3. Before leaving the vaccination room, go through the video to confirm that you received the dose.
  4. If there is any discrepancy, you can address it with the doctor or nurse, or ask to see a supervisor.

Read more : Vaccine Underdose : What Should You Watch Out For?

 

What Should You Do After Booster Dose Vaccination?

First, congratulate yourself on protecting yourself and your family. Then take some photos before you leave the clinic / hospital, and share them on social media!

Dietary Restrictions?

There are NO RESTRICTIONS on your diet or daily life after your booster dose vaccination. Please remember – you were vaccinated against COVID-19, not convicted of a crime!

However, it is best if you limit or avoid alcohol intake for a few days. Excessive alcohol intake can suppress your immune system, and reduce vaccine efficacy.

Exercise Or Not?

You may see health authorities advising against strenuous exercise after your vaccination. There are a few reasons :

  • A precautionary measure for adolescents and young adults (below 30 years of age) who received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, as there is a very small risk that they may get myocarditis / pericarditis.
  • To avoid accidents if people start feeling side effects like headache or fever while exercising.
  • To avoid people conflating post-exercise pain and reporting it as post-vaccination side effect.

Take it easy for a few days, and then start with light exercises. Listen to your body, and look out for chest pain or breathing difficulties.

Even if you are feeling fine, take the time to slowly ramp up your exercise over the next few days, as a precaution.

Continue COVID-19 Precautions!

You must continue to take COVID-19 precautions in public, like wear a face mask and a face shield, and maintaining physical distance in public, because :

  • you will not receive maximum protection until 2-3 weeks after your booster dose.
  • vaccines cannot protect you 100% against COVID-19, so there is a small risk of breakthrough infections.
  • new variants like the Delta variant are partially resistant to vaccines.

Report Side Effects

You can expect some mild side effects over the next day or two, like fever, muscle ache and possibly headache.

You should not worry about them – they are evidence of your immune system learning to fight against COVID-19.

You can take painkillers if you need to, but try to use paracetamol / acetaminophen instead of NSAIDS like ibuprofen and aspirin.

Make sure you report any serious side effects you may encounter, and seek medical attention at the nearest clinic or hospital.

Swimming, Golf, Badminton Allowed For Fully-Vaccinated!

Fully-vaccinated people in Malaysia can now go swimming, play golf and badminton, amongst other things!

Here is what you need to know!

 

Swimming, Golf, Badminton Allowed For Fully-Vaccinated!

From 20 August 2021 onwards, fully-vaccinated people in Malaysia are given more sports and recreational privileges.

Who Qualifies For These Privileges?

Only those who are fully-vaccinated according to these requirements can participate in these sports and recreational privileges :

  • More than 14 days after receiving both doses of the Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac vaccine.
  • More than 28 days after receiving a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson or Cansino vaccine.

Children are currently not being vaccinated. So parents who are fully-vaccinated are ALLOWED to bring their children who are 17 years or younger to participate in these activities as well.

Sports + Recreational Privileges

Sports and recreational premises and facilities are ALLOWED to open, subject to these restrictions :

  • only open from 6 AM until 8 PM,
  • RESTRICTED to only fully-vaccinated individuals, and their children who are 17 years or younger,
  • 60% capacity limit, under supervision,
  • workforce limited to 60%, including management and operations staff, and
  • subject to any rules and restrictions stipulated by local authorities.

New sports and recreational activities that are now open to fully-vaccinated people include :

  • all individual sports or recreational activities that do not require physical touch, with physical distance of 2-3 metres
  • swimming,
  • equestrian sports,
  • shooting,
  • tennis / badminton (single),
  • golf,
  • motorsports and so on.

In addition, fully-vaccinated people are ALLOWED to dine-in at the club house restaurant or cafe.

Sports + Recreational Restrictions

There are a few restrictions though :

  • It is FORBIDDEN to use the changing room, or shower room, at these sports and recreational facilities.
  • You are RESTRICTED to the same district.

 

Should You Go Swimming Or Play Golf / Badminton?

Frankly speaking, this isn’t a good time to be going out for a swim, or to play golf or badminton, as community spread of COVID-19 is rampant with over 20K new cases reported every day!

However, if you really must, here are some steps to mitigate your risks :

  • if possible, condos should not allow strangers to share the pool at the same time.
  • if possible, book the entire swimming pool for your family so there are no strangers present at the same time
  • try not to bring your unvaccinated children for a swim, unless you can book the entire pool
  • try to play golf alone or with family members who are already living with you, instead of with friends
  • try to play golf without a caddy to help you
  • try to play tennis or badminton with a family member who is already living with you, rather than a friend
  • never use the shower room or changing room
