Did 35 year-old former NFL player Paul Duncan die from a vaccine-induced cardiac arrest?!
Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Paul Duncan Died From Vaccine-Induced Cardiac Arrest!
Right after news broke that 35 year-old former NFL player Paul Duncan died from a cardiac arrest while going for a run, people started claiming that his heart attack was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.
No Evidence Paul Duncan Died From COVID-19 Vaccine!
It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete 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 : Paul Duncan Died From Cardiac Arrest
Paul Duncan went into cardiac arrest while running in his Atlanta, Georgia neighbourhood on Friday, July 15, 2022. He was hospitalised, but pronounced brain dead the next day.
His wife, Ellen Duncan, confirmed this in her Instagram post on Saturday, July 16, 2022.
You will note that she did not even mention the COVID-19 vaccine as a cause of his death.
Fact #2 : An Autopsy Will Be Conducted On Paul Duncan
As his wife explained, an autopsy will be conducted on Paul Duncan, to understand his cause of death.
Paul Duncan’s autopsy appears to be completed and his body released to his family, as his funeral mass has been scheduled for Monday, July 25, 2022.
Until that autopsy report is revealed by his wife, anyone who tells you that Paul Duncan died from this or that cause is LYING to you.
Fact #3 : Many Athletes Die Unexpectedly Every Year
What many of us do not realise is that many athletes die unexpectedly every year, and the number has been steadily increasing every year.
This chart from the Maron study shows a progressive rise in sudden death reports of 6% per year, from 1980 to 2006.
In fact, the number of sudden deaths in young and fit athletes more than quadrupled from 1980 to 2006!
This debunks the claim that such a rise in sudden death must be due to the COVID-19 vaccine, which obviously did not exist back then.
Fact #4 : Unknown If Paul Duncan Was Even Vaccinated
It is currently unknown if Paul Duncan was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from the COVID-19 vaccine.
For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
Unless we know for sure he was vaccinated, anyone who tells you he died from the vaccine is simply lying.
Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Paul Duncan was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.
He 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 #6 : 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 #7 : 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 #8 : 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.
