Claim : Robbie “Hagrid” Coltrane Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on his death:

Was Robbie Coltrane’s relatively young passing to do with a covid vaccine?

Truth : No Evidence Robbie Coltrane Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity 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, and what we know so far…

Fact #1 : Robbie Coltrane’s Cause Of Death Was Multiple Organ Failure

Robbie Coltrane (born Anthony Robert McMillan) OBE passed away at the Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert, Scotland on Friday, October 14, 2022.

His agent, Belinda Wright, announced his death in a statement that said:

My client and friend Robbie Coltrane OBE passed away on Friday October 14. Robbie was a unique talent, sharing the Guinness Book of Records’ Award for winning three consecutive Best Actor Baftas.

He will probably be best remembered for decades to come as Hagrid in the Harry Potter films, a role which brought joy to children and adults alike all over the world, prompting a stream of fan letters every week for over 20 years.

For me personally I shall remember him as an abidingly loyal client. As well as being a wonderful actor, he was forensically intelligent, brilliantly witty and after 40 years of being proud to be called his agent, I shall miss him.

He is survived by his sister Annie Rae, his children Spencer and Alice and their mother Rhona Gemmell. They would like to thank the medical staff at Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert for their care and diplomacy.

Nine days later, his ex-wife, Rhona Gemmell registered Robbie Coltrane’s death in Glasgow.

Robbie Coltrane’s death certificate revealed that his official cause of death was multiple organ failure.

At the time of his death, Robbie Coltrane also suffered from sepsis, a lower respiratory tract infection, Type 2 diabetes, heart block, and obesity. Those factors, together with multiple organ failures, led to his death.

So let me repeat this for the record – Robbie Coltrane did NOT die from COVID-19 vaccines. His cause of death was multiple organ failure, complicated by sepsis, lower respiratory tract infection, Type 2 diabetes, heart block, and obesity.

Fact #2 : Robbie Coltrane Was In Ill Health

Robbie Coltrane was in ill health for the past two years, stating that he was in “constant pain all day” and disabled.

Back in 2016, he revealed that he had osteoarthritis, which caused his severe pain and limited his mobility even then. He would end up using a walking stick, and eventually, a wheelchair in 2019 while waiting to undergo knee replacement (arthroplasty) operation in the United States.

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease, and is associated with an increased risk of falling, bone fractures, and premature death.

Coltrane appeared to be aware of his mortality, reflecting on it in a HBO special for the 20th anniversary of the Harry Potter franchise:

The legacy of the movies is that my children’s generation will show them to their children, so you could be watching it in 50 years’ time. I’ll not be here sadly, but Hagrid will.

Earlier this year, Robbie Coltrane was said to be having serious health issues. In June 2022, he was forced to pull out of London’s Comic Con due to medical reasons.

Fact #3 : Unknown If Robbie Coltrane Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Robbie Coltrane was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Fact #4 : SADS Is An Inherited Heart Condition

It is ludicrous to claim that COVID-19 vaccines cause sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS), because SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

SADS is an inherited problem with your heart’s electrical system, which produces an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

SADS also occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year. In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Note : There is no 2021 data until sometime in December 2022. The 2020 data was only released on 22 December 2021.

Vaccination in the United Kingdom started on 8 December 2020, with over a million doses administered by end of the month. Despite (false) claims that the vaccines cause SADS, that did not result in an increase in SADS cases.

Years Sudden Adult Death
Syndrome Cases
2016 116
2017 63
2018 53
2019 87
2020 115

Fact #5 : Vaccine-Induced Death Syndrome Does Not Exist

After social media filters started clamping down on SADS, anti-vaccination activists have coined a new term – Vaccine-Induced Death Syndrome (VIDS or VDS).

There is no such thing as Vaccine-Induced Death Syndrome. It is simply a term they made up to blame every sudden death on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Despite what anti-vaccination activists claim, COVID-19 vaccines do not cause people to suddenly die.

Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Robbie Coltrane was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his vaccine doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not many months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

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

Despite anti-vaccination activists chalking up celebrity deaths to the vaccine; death or injury from rare vaccine adverse effects like anaphylaxis, myocarditis and VITT 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 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By 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.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…
