Santino Godoy Blanco – the 4 year-old face of Argentina’s child vaccination campaign tragically died.
Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Santino Godoy Blanco Died From Vaccine Sudden Death!
Right after news broke that Santino Godoy Blanco fell sick and died, anti-vaccination activists immediately claimed that the poster boy for Argentina’s child vaccination campaign died from vaccine-induced sudden death (SADS / VIDS / VDS)!

Truth : Santino Godoy Blanco Did NOT Die From Vaccine!
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…
But before I start, I would like to point out that it is unbelievable how low they would go. They didn’t even bat an eye in lying about a young boy’s death. They have no shame at all.
Fact #1 : Santino Godoy Blanco Died From Pneumonia
Santino Godoy Blanco, who hailed from the town of San Miguel, had been unwell for a week with a high fever that persisted despite being given ibuprofen.
His mother, Agustina Blanco, took him to the Dr. Raúl F. Larcade Municipal Hospital at dawn on Wednesday, November 2, where the doctor said that he had a viral fever, and sent him home.
Unfortunately, Santino’s fever persisted and he started to throw up. He was Reliverán (Metoclopramide) for his vomiting, but eventually went back to the hospital after his condition did not improve.
Santino’s condition continued to deteriorate to Thursday – he kept vomiting, and was weak and not able to eat. Once again, his mother brought him to the hospital, but this time, Santino was so weak, he was no longer able to sit up and had to lie down.
After 10 minutes, the nurse told his mother that Santino needed oxygen, explaining that the doctor who checked him believed he was suffering from bronchospasm, but the three pulse oximeter sensors they tried didn’t work. Santino then went into shock, and they tried but failed to revive him after 1.5 hours.
After Santino Blanco died, an autopsy was conducted on his body, which revealed that he died from pneumonia.
In short, Santino Godoy Blanca’s cause of death was pneumonia, not COVID-19 or the COVID-19 vaccine.
It was also not a “sudden death”, as anti-vaccination activists keep claiming. Sadly, Santino suffered for a long time before dying from pneumonia.
Fact #2 : Argentinian Vaccination Campaign Was Not For COVID-19
Now, I should point out that the vaccination campaign that Santino Godoy Blanco was featured in, was not for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Santino was a model for the Argentinian National Ministry of Health’s vaccination campaign for measles, rubella, mumps and polio (sarampión, rubéola, paperas y polio).
All those nasty antivaxxers mocking his family or the boy for promoting something that “killed him” got it completely wrong. So you have to ask yourself – why should you listen to people who either lied, or just made up that claim?

Fact #3 : Unknown If Santino Blanco Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19
Just because Santino Godoy Blanco was a model for a vaccination campaign, does not mean he was actually vaccinated against COVID-19.
It’s no different from how actors may appear to be macho in a movie, but are quite different people in real life.
For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Argentina, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
Fact #4 : Argentina Uses Sinopharm For Child COVID-19 Vaccinations
Anti-vaccination activists are falsely blaming Santino Godoy Bianco’s death on mRNA vaccines.
Even if Santino Godoy Blanco was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he never received an mRNA vaccine, because Argentina only approved the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine for use in children between 3 and 11 years in age.
The Sinopharm COVILO vaccine, also known as BBIBP-CorV or just BIBP, is an inactivated virus vaccine made from actual SARS-CoV-2 virus grown in Vero cells, and killed using β-propiolactone. This vaccine does not use mRNA technology.
Fact #5 : Pneumonia Is A Common Cause Of Childhood Death
Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that children do not die from pneumonia.
The truth is – pneumonia is a common cause of death in very young children, accounting for 14% of all deaths of children under 5 years old.
In fact, the WHO points out that pneumonia is the single largest infectious cause of death in children worldwide, killing 740,180 children in 2019 alone.
Pneumonia is a form of acute respiratory infection by viruses, bacteria or fungi that infect the lungs, and makes breathing difficult and reduces the amount of oxygen the child receives.

Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccines Cannot Prevent Other Causes Of Death
COVID-19 vaccines are designed to protect us against severe illness and death from COVID-19, by teaching our own immune system how to create antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
They, however, cannot protect us against other causes of death, whether it’s pneumonia, cardiac arrest or even other viruses. Hence, fully-vaccinated people can and will die from other causes of death.
It is therefore ludicrous for anti-vaccination activists to blame all deaths of fully-vaccinated people on the vaccine. Did they really expect the COVID-19 vaccine to be an elixir of immortality? Please grow up.
Fact #7 : 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. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!
