Did stand-up comedian Jak Knight die from COVID-19 vaccine side effects at just 28 years of age?!
Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Jak Knight Died From COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects!
Right after news broke that young and rising comedian Jak Knight passed away unexpectedly at just 28 years of age, they started claiming that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.
Many insisted that he is “yet another” case of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) caused by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
No Evidence Jak Knight Died From COVID-19 Side Effects!
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 : Jak Knight Died At Home
First, let us establish what is known so far about Jak Knight’s death, which isn’t much.
- He died on Thursday night, July 14, 2022
- He was 28 years old when he died
- He passed away in his own home in Los Angeles
His death was confirmed by a representative for Knight’s family :
Knight’s loved ones ask that their privacy please be respected during this extremely difficult time.
Fact #2 : Jak Knight’s Cause Of Death Is Unknown
Jak Knight’s family representative only announced his death, but did not announce a cause of death. That means NO ONE KNOWS (at this time) what he died from.
Let me be clear – his cause of death is currently UNKNOWN. That does not mean he died from “a vaccine injury” or “vaccine side effects”.
Until an autopsy is performed and his family reveals his cause of death, anyone who claims that Jak Knight died of this cause or that cause is lying to you.
Fact #3 : Unknown If Jak Knight Was Even Vaccinated
It is currently unknown if Jak Knight was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.
One “celebrity blog” that often posts unverified rumours claimed that “Jak Knight was vaccinated and during the times of the vaccination exercise, he was a strong advocate for people to take the vaccine.” without offering any evidence.
I personally could find not a single instance of Jak Knight ever talking about COVID-19 vaccination.
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.
Fact #4 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Jak Knight was vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses 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 #5 : 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 #6 : 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 #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.
