Anti-vaccination activists have been claiming the University of Western Ontario student Spencer Cornelis died after getting the COVID-19 vaccine!

No Evidence UWO Student Spencer Cornelis Died From Vaccine!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all 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 : Spencer Cornelis’¬†Cause Of Death Still Unknown

Spencer Harrison Curt Cornelis who was studying Management and Organisational Studies at the Western University, died unexpectedly on October 18, 2022.

His family celebrated his life in his obituary, but did not mention any cause of death. So there is ZERO EVIDENCE that Spencer Cornelis died from the vaccine.

He could easily have died from the many causes of unexpected death in someone that young – vehicular accident, sudden cardiac arrest, suicide, misadventure, drug overdose, etc.

Unless and until an autopsy is carried out, or his family reveals his cause of death, anyone who claims that Spencer Cornelis died from the vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #2 : Unknown If Spencer Cornelis Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It is currently unknown if Spencer Cornelis was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to blame the COVID-19 vaccine for his death.

Students attending classes at the University of Western Ontario are required to be vaccinated to enter campus.

However, Spencer was a licensed real estate agent who worked for The Realty Firm Inc. since May 2022, according to his LinkedIn page

So it is possible that he may have been studying remotely as Western University offers Distance Studies for working adults. In that case, he may not be vaccinated at all, as there is no vaccination mandate in Canada.

Fact #3 : UWO Still Recommends COVID-19 Vaccination

On November 29, 2022, the University of Western Ontario (UWO) announced that it was revoking its long-standing vaccination policy requiring “students, employees, and visitors to be vaccinated to come to campus“.

This decision had nothing to do with the two recent deaths of their students, but was based on “the latest consultation” with their “medical experts and local public health”.

This decision likely had to do with the fact that most Canadians are already fully-vaccinated – some 80.8% of the population in Ontario, where UWO is located.

It comes after Public Health Canada’s lifted its own requirement for proof of vaccination to “enter Canada, or board a plane or train in Canada” as well as “travel within Canada and flights or trains leaving Canada” on October 1, 2022.

Western University still continues to recommend that its students, employees and visitors stay up to date on their vaccinations:

[V]accination continues to be the best defence against severe illness and hospitalization. We strongly encourage everyone to remain up to date on their vaccinations.

If Western University revoked their vaccine mandate because two students died from the vaccines, they would have NOT recommended that everyone should still get the booster dose.

In fact, it should be noted that Western University issued a booster dose mandate for the Fall 2022 semester on August 22, 2022 that they successfully defended in the Ontario Superior Court.

They would not have done that if the earlier COVID-19 vaccinations were not proven to be safe and effective.

Fact #4 : University Of Toronto Still Requires COVID-Vaccination

Some anti-vaccination activists are claiming that Western University is the only university to require a vaccine mandate. That’s false.¬†The University of Toronto also had a vaccine mandate for all students studying and living on campus.

The vaccine requirement for on-campus students was lifted on May 1, 2022, but students who choose to live on-campus for the 2022-2023 academic year are still required to be fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, including at least one booster dose.

If there is any evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine and/or booster doses are dangerous, the University of Toronto would have lifted its vaccine mandate as well.

The truth is – the vaccines have been proven safe and effective. Which is why the University of Toronto maintains that “vaccination is the most important way that individuals can protect themselves against COVID-19”.

Fact #5 : Claims Of Students Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing student deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of student 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 student tragedy…
