No Evidence KJ Hamler Developed Pericarditis From COVID-19 Vaccine!

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

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

Fact #1 : KJ Hamler Has Mild Pericarditis

KJ Hamler (born Kahlee Jacoby Hamler on July 8, 1999) is a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos who made his NFL debut in the 2020 season.

On Monday, 31 July 2023, KJ Hamler announced that he was diagnosed with mild pericarditis, after suffering some chest pains while working out.

He pointed out that he feels great physically, but has to take a break to treat the pericarditis. He is reportedly expected to miss weeks, not months, due to this pericarditis diagnosis.

After feeling some chest pains while working out on the break before camp started, I got everything checked out and was diagnosed with mild heart irritation, called pericarditis. I’ve got a great treatment plan with medicine and am taking a quick break to get this all taken care of so I can get back to doing what I love.

I will be back on the field—better and stronger than ever—as soon as possible this season! I feel great physically and this is very frustrating for me to deal with. I know most of you have heard or know of my story and these past few years what I’ve been going through on and off the field.

I’m so grateful for my teammates & coaches. Appreciate the support from the Broncos Country and encouragement I have been receiving. This is something to bring awareness to anybody. So anyone with chest pains please get checked out by your doctor!

Fact #2 : Broncos Waived KJ Hamler With NFI

In a sign that KJ Hamler’s pericarditis is mild and will resolve quickly, the Denver Broncos are reportedly waiving him on a non-football illness (NFI) designation.

This is a procedural move which allows KJ Hamler to return in the 2023 season. If they placed him on reserve, or the non-football injury list instead, he could end up not playing for the entire season.

KJ Hamler had only just recovered from surgery to treat a torn pectoral muscle he sustained in March while training on his own in the offseason.

Fact #3 : Pericarditis Is Most Commonly Caused By Infections

Pericarditis is the inflammation of the pericardium – the fibrous sac covering the heart. Most people only know it as a known but rare side effect of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna.

What you may not know is that pericarditis is most commonly caused by viral infections, followed by bacterial infections (commonly tuberculosis), heart attack, autoimmune diseases, and chest trauma.

And yes – COVID-19 infections can cause pericarditis, and acute pericarditis is a major clinical manifestation of long COVID syndrome.

Fact #4 : Pericarditis Existed Long Before COVID-19 Vaccines

In addition – people have suffered from pericarditis long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented. On average, about 40 per 100,000 people develop pericarditis every year.

An August 2022 study showed that an average of 125,209 patients every year were diagnosed with pericarditis in the United States from 2007 to 2016. Males between the ages of 20 and 50 – like KJ Hamler – are most commonly affected.

Fact #5 : KJ Hamler Was Fully-Vaccinated Two Years Ago!

It is interesting to note that when people share screenshots showing that KJ Hamler was fully-vaccinated, they crop out the date. And it’s easy to see why.

KJ Hamler was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, receiving his second dose in the last week of July 2021 – TWO YEARS ago!

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

KJ Hamler cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

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

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

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

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

Fact #7 : KJ Hamler Got Infected With COVID-19

KJ Hamler tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, August 3, 2021. That was just after he received his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

While many anti-vaccination activists are saying that this proves that the vaccine isn’t effective, the truth is you need to wait about 14 days for your body to develop the necessary antibodies after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

In fact, KJ Hamler pointed out to reporters back in August 2021 that he was not yet 14 days clear of the second shot.

I should also point out that the COVID-19 vaccines are not designed to block infections. They were designed to prevent you from developing severe COVID-19, or dying from COVID-19.

Fact #8 : Claims Of COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Often Proven False

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

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