Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Neena Pacholke Died From Vaccine SADS!
Almost immediately after news broke that Neena Pacholke died suddenly, anti-vaccination activists started claiming that the News 9 anchor and former USF basketball player died from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).
Here are just some examples circulating on social media :
Truth : Neena Pacholke Died From Suicide
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 : Neena Pacholke Died From Suicide
Neena Pacholke cannot possibly have died from vaccine-induced Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, because she took her own life.
On Saturday, August 27, 2022, concerned friends called 911 and reported that she had been threatening to kill herself.
Police officers went to her apartment in southeast Wausau, Wisconsin, at 11 AM; and found her dead inside. It is unclear how she took her own life.
The former basketball player for University of South Florida was set to marry her fiancé, Kyle Haase six weeks later on October 12, when she took her own life.
Her sister, Kaitlynn Pacholke, confirmed in an interview with the Tampa Bay Times, that she “died by suicide“.
Fact #2 : Neena Pacholke Had Been Battling Depression
Her best friend and former colleague, Ally Peters, said that Neena had been secretly battling depression, despite putting on a smile for everyone.
She also shared that Neena’s depression had gotten significantly worse in the last few months.
Ally set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds for Neena’s family, and tacitly acknowledged Neena’s mental health struggles by directing excess donations “towards mental health resources and awareness“.
Fact #3 : Her Cause Of Death Is Under Investigation
Neena Pacholke’s cause of death is currently under investigation by the Marathon County Medical Examiner’s office, which the Medical Examiner, Jessica Blahnik, confirmed in an email to Heavy:
In other words, Neena Pacholke’s cause of death is currently unknown. It does not mean she died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects” or “vaccine-induced SADS”.
Fact #4 : Her Family Did Not Blame Vaccine For Her Death
There was no official family statement regarding her death, but her sister – Kaitlynn Pacholke alluded to her mental health struggles, but not vaccination, in an interview with the Tampa Bay Times newspaper:
Fact #5 : Unknown If Neena Pacholke Was Vaccinated
It is currently unknown if Neena Pacholke was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that she died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.
For all we know – she may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Neena Pacholke was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received all of her doses many months ago.
She 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.
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 : Deaths / Injuries From COVID-19 Vaccines 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 #8 : 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 #9 : 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.
