Claim : Carlos Santana Collapsed From Vaccine Side Effects!

On Tuesday, June 5, 2022, Carlos Santana collapsed on stage while performing at the Pine Knob Music Theatre in Clarkson, Michigan.

Another vaccine zealot may be regretting their choice.

Even millionaire antivaxxer, Steve Kirsch (who is fully vaccinated himself!) suggested that Santana’s collapse was due to the vaccines. #winkwink

Truth : Carlos Santana Collapsed From Dehydration, Not Vaccine!

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

And we can confirm that these celebrity COVID-19 vaccine injury claims are false… yet again.

Carlos Santana Recovered Quickly

Carlos Santana was playing for about 40 minutes into his set, when he sat down on a riser and passed out.

Medics treated him on stage, and he recovered quickly – he was seen waving to fans, as they wheeled him out.

His manager, Michael Vrionis, said that Santana was “doing well” shortly after his collapse, but he was still taken to the McLaren Clarkston’s emergency department for observation.

Carlos Santana Collapsed From Dehydration

Carlos Santana’s wife, Cindy, posted on July 6, 2022, that Carlos was doing well, and had been diagnosed with heat exhaustion and dehydration.

She also pointed out that it was hot (100 °F / 38°C) on stage, and it was 114 °F / 46°C under the lights.

Hi Everyone! Carlos & I thank you so much for your prayers, love, care & concern for him! Please know that he’s resting and doing very well!

He was diagnosed with heat exhaustion & dehydration… it was 100 degrees on stage and 114 under the lights so that coupled with not enough water is what caused the issue.

He’ll be as good as new soon! Thank you again and we love you! Cindy & Carlos. 💜💜💜💜💜💜

His manager also issued a statement, confirming that Santana had suffered “heat exhaustion and dehydration”.

Carlos Santana Blamed A Lack Of Food + Drink, Not Vaccine

Carlos Santana posted an update on Facebook, assuring his fans that he was okay.

He also explained that he forgot to eat and drink water before his set, which was why he got dehydrated and passed out.

to one and all
thank you for your precious prayers
Cindy and I we are good just taking it easy
forgot to eat and drink water
so i dehydrated and passed out
blessings and miracles to you all

Vaccine Does Not Cause Heat Exhaustion Or Dehydration

Carlos Santana is very likely vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has spoken out positively about the vaccine, and was part of the “We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert” for the vaccinated.

He also underwent an “unscheduled heart procedure” in December 2021, and would be at high risk of developing complications with a COVID-19 infection.

Just to be clear – COVID-19 vaccines cannot cause heat exhaustion or dehydration… so, if any anti-vaccination activist tells you that, please slap them silly.

His collapse and quick recovery is also not indicative of myocarditis, despite claims by anti-vaccination activists.

COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to be safe and effective, through massive clinical trials, and post-marketing monitoring of billions of doses.

Just More Celebrity Fake News!

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…
