No Evidence Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker Suffered Stroke From COVID-19 Vaccine!
It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Chris Baker Announced He Suffered A Stroke
Chris Baker (born Christopher Isaiah Baker on October 8, 1987) nicknamed ‘Swaggy’ is a former American football defensive tackle who played nine seasons in the National Football League (NFL).
On Tuesday, 24 January, 2023, Baker announced on an Instagram story that he suffered a stroke, and almost died two days earlier.
Tell your loved ones you love ’em, my life almost ended 2 days ago. I can’t believe I had a stroke but God not done with me yet.
He also shared a video from a Hartford, Connecticut hospital room, showing him sitting up and stalking to a nurse, while hooked up on an IV drip.
Fact #2 : Cause Of Chris Baker’s Stroke Is Still Unknown
According to TMZ Sports, his mother said that Chris Baker suffered the “serious” stroke on Friday, January 20, 2023, and required emergency surgery.
However, his doctors have said that he was responding as if it was a “minor” stroke, and he is expected to make a full recovery.
Currently, the cause of his stroke has not been revealed, and Chris Baker himself never blamed the vaccine for it.
There is simply no evidence that Chris Baker suffered his stroke because of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact #3 : Chris Baker Was Likely Not Vaccinated Against COVID-19
It is likely that Chris ‘Swaggy’ Baker was never vaccinated against COVID-19, even though he never publicly said so.
For one thing, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States or the NFL, at least for the coaches and players. In any case, it wouldn’t have mattered for Swaggy, because he last played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in February 2018.
More importantly, Chris Baker publicly came out against the COVID-19 vaccines, posting on January 3, 2022 that “vaccine don’t even work”.
I wish you would stop shaming unvaccinated people as if it’s a problem we all have choices.
That vaccine don’t even work. Vaccinated or unvaccinated you still can catch Covid and have to quarantine 5 days now 🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️
He continued on January 4, 2022, claiming that “the vaccine doesn’t work” and “the vaccine is a waste of time“.
I’m sure you heard this on the news which lies all day every day🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️ my body my choice and IMO the vaccine doesn’t work it’s just an agenda being pushed on people.
we’ll just have to agree to disagree about the vaccination the research I’ve done has shown the vaccine is a waste of time but that’s my opinion 🤷🏾♂️
Unless Swaggy himself confirms that he was vaccinated against COVID-19 in spite of his prior comments, it would be wrong to blame his stroke on the COVID-19 vaccine.
Fact #4 : Strokes Can Happen In Young People
While people claim that it is impossible or rare for young people to suffer from strokes, that’s not true.
According to a February 2020 study published in the journal Stroke, about 10% to 15% of strokes occur in adults under 50, and the rate is increasing among young and middle-aged people.
With almost 800,000 people in the United States suffering from a stroke every single year, about 80,000 to 120,000 strokes occur in adults under 50.
In young people, the risk of strokes is increased by these factors:
- patent foramen ovale (PFO) : about 1 in 4 people have this small hole between the wall dividing the right and left atrium of the heart. This was what caused Kris Letang’s stroke.
- arterial dissection : up to 25% of strokes in people under 45 are caused by a dissecting blood vessel in the neck that occurs spontaneously, but can also be caused by sports-related trauma, or whiplash.
- blood clotting disorders like sickle cell disease, which affects 1 in every 365 African Americans.
- substance abuse : drugs like cocaine can contribute to strokes by constricting blood vessels while increasing the clumping of blood cells.
While we do not yet know what caused Chris Baker’s stroke, the takeaway is this – it is not rare for young adults to suffer from a stroke.
