Did NFL athlete Damar Hamlin collapse suddenly from vaccine-induced sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)?!

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


Claim : Damar Hamlin Collapsed From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Damar Hamlin collapsed suddenly during a primetime NFL game, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the 24 year-old NFL athlete was a victim of COVID-19 vaccine sudden adult death syndrome (SADS)!

Here are some examples on social media:

I’m at the twitter command center right now and I can tell you that black people are MAD about Damar Hamlin and what the vaccine did to this young king.

Don’t take the vaccine. Don’t take any more boosters if you’ve already been vaxed. Damar Hamlin and many others have had issues. They will lie and say it’s something else. It’s not it’s the vaccine

The number of sudden collapses and deaths will continue to increase.
Damar Hamlin is just another number in a very long statistic of the safe and effective DNA altering MRNA “vaccine” shot.
If people wouldn’t be NPC’s then they would be burning down governments as of now.

Truth : Damar Hamlin Did Not Collapse From Vaccine SADS!

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 : Damar Hamlin In Critical Condition After Getting Hit

Damar Hamlin (born Damar Romeyelle Hamlin on March 24, 1998) is an American football safety for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League (NFL).

On Monday, January 2, 2023, the Buffalo Bills were playing a game against the Cincinnati Bengals, when Damar Hamlin was hit in the chest while trying to tackle Bengals receiver Tee Higgins. He stood up briefly before suddenly collapsing.

Medical personnel rushed to his aid, giving him CPR and trying to resuscitate him with an automated external defibrillator (AED). After working on him for about 16 minutes, they immobilised him and transported him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Hamlin was said to have a pulse, but was in a critical condition, and unable to breathe on his own. He was intubated and given oxygen in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.

The NFL issued this statement on Damar Hamlin’s sudden collapse on the field:


Tonight’s Buffalo Bills-Cincinnati Bengals game has been postponed after Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin collapsed, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced.

Hamlin received immediate medical attention on the field by team and independent medical staff and local paramedics. He was then transported to a local hospital where he is in critical condition.

Our thoughts are with Damar and the Buffalo Bills. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

The NFL has been in constant communication with the NFL Players Association which is in agreement with postponing the game.

Damar Hamlin’s friend and marketing rep, Jordon Rooney, later posted an update on his condition, stating that his vitals were back to normal, and implied that he was awake was still unable to breathe on his own. So, he was sedated before being intubated.

His vitals are back to normal and they have put him to sleep to put a breathing tube down his throat. They are currently running tests.

Fact #2 : Damar Hamlin Possibly Suffered Commotio Cordis

Sudden cardiac arrest happens quite often, even in athletes who appear to be in perfect health. In fact, over 320,000 adults in the United States alone die from sudden cardiac arrest every year, and about 2,000 of them are young athletes.

That is why many states in the US require automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places. That said, Damar Hamlin does not appear to have collapsed from sudden cardiac arrest.

Instead Damar Hamlin possibly suffered Commotio cordis, which is Latin for “agitation of the heart“. This is a very rare event, but is known to happen in sports that can result in blows to the chest, like baseball, American football, ice hockey, polo, rugby, cricket, softball, boxing, wrestling and martial arts.

Commotio cordis is an often lethal disruption of the heart’s rhythm, that occurs as a result of a blow to the chest. If the blow occurs at a very specific time – as the ventricles repolarises (resets), it will trigger the heart to go into arrhythmia, causing a cardiac arrest.

While commotio cordis can only happen when the blunt force trauma to the heart occurs at exactly in the ascending phase of the T wave, this risk is escalated during sporting activities, as the heart rate rises and increases the risk of a blow to the chest triggering Commotio cordis.

This is a form of ventricular fibrillation (V-Fib) and is not caused by any mechanical damage to the heart, or a pre-existing heart condition. The person collapses about six seconds later, as the ventricles are unable to contract properly.

In the playback videos that have gone viral, you can clearly see Damar Hamlin get hit very hard in the chest as he tried to tackle Tee Higgins. Although he was able to get up on his own, he collapsed almost instantly after that. That makes commotio cordis far more likely the cause of his collapse, than a simple sudden cardiac arrest.

Needless to say – his collapse had NOTHING to do with COVID-19 vaccines. In the following video, you can see Dr. Brian Sutterer – a sports medicine doctor, explain why Damar Hamlin likely suffered from commotio cordis.

Dr. Bernard Ashby, a vascular cardiologist and a medical school professor, concurred; stating that the video of Damar Hamlin collapsing after getting hit in the chest resembled commotio cordis.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Damar Hamlin Was Vaccinated

It is unknown if Damar Hamlin was vaccinated against COVID-19, as he has never publicly stated his vaccination status, or his preference for or against the vaccines.

The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States or the NFL, at least for the coaches and players.

While the NFL strongly encouraged COVID-19 vaccinations, it only requires employees in contact with players to be fully-vaccinated. Surprisingly, coaches and players were not subject to any vaccine mandate, and all COVID-19 protocols were dropped in March 2022.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, for example, was notorious for refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Until and unless we know his COVID-19 vaccination status, it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he suffered any kind of vaccine injury.

Fact #4 : Claims Of Athletes Injured By 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…
