Coolio: Why Vaccine SADS Is Unlikely Cause Of Death!
It’s becoming 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 the current facts that we know so far.
Fact #1: Coolio Is Suspected To Have Died From Cardiac stop
First, let’s establish what we know so far about Coolio’s death, based on what his longtime manager, Jarez Posey, revealed.
On Wednesday, September 28, 2022, 59 year-old Coolio (whose real name is Artis Leon Ivey Jr.) was visiting a friend in Los Angeles when he excused himself to use the bathroom.
When he didn’t return after a while, this friend tried calling him, but when there was no response, went in and found Coolio laying on the floor at around 4 PM.
His friend called EMTs, who arrived and found no sign of life. They tried to resuscitate him for 45 minutes, but failed and pronounced him dead on the scene.
According to Posey, the paramedics suspected cardiac arrest as Coolio’s cause of death.
Fact #2: Coolio Suffered From Asthma
While many people pointed out that Coolio was healthy and well just days before dying, he had a lifelong struggle with asthma. In fact, he carries an inhaler with him to help tackle his asthma attacks.
This may have been a factor in his death, as people with asthma have 50% higher risk of suffering atrial fibrillation which causes an irregular heartbeat.
Even those who take medication for their asthma are 60% more likely to suffer strokes, heart attacks, and other heart problems.

Fact #3: Coolio Was Well Before His Death
Just days before his death, Coolio took photos with fans at the Houston airport and was, by all accounts, happy and in good spirits. He also appeared to healthy and well when he visited his friend just before he died.
His apparent good health tells us that he isn’t suffering from vaccine-induced myocarditis, which would have left him breathless and fatigued, with cardiac symptoms like chest pain, irregular heart beat, etc.
Whatever happened to Coolio in his friend’s bathroom was acute (sudden) in nature, which is why cardiac arrest (possibly precipitated by an asthma attack) is likely the cause of his death.
Fact #4: An Autopsy Was performed On Coolio
An autopsy was performed on Coolio by Deputy Medical Examiner Dr. Phan-Tang, and his body had been released to his family. His partner for the last ten years – Mimi Ivey – said that he would be cremated, and there would not be a funeral.
However, the autopsy results and his official cause of death have been deferred, pending additional investigations. Once the results of those tests are in, Dr. Phan-Tang will make a final determination of his cause of death.
The police opened an investigation into his death, but they do not suspect foul play. They said earlier that no drugs or drug paraphernalia were found at the scene, but a toxicology test was carried out to help determine the official cause of death.
The lack of an official cause of death does not mean that Coolio died from COVID-19 vaccine SADS. It simply means that his actual cause of death has yet to be determined, pending additional test results / investigations.
Until the official cause of death is determined and announced, anyone who tells you that Coolio died from this or that cause is lying.
Fact #5: Coolio Was Possibly Vaccinated
It is currently unknown if Coolio was vaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
However, I believe he was likely vaccinated because he did a live show in Australia on March 7, 2022. At that time, Australia required travelers to be fully-vaccinated.
That said, Australia allows exemptions for medical reasons or if the person had COVID-19 in the previous 4 months, so it isn’t “hard evidence” and we don’t really know for sure.
But currently, he seems more likely than not that Coolio was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, even though there are some evidence that he was anti-vaccination himself.
Fact #6: Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Coolio was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he obviously received all of his doses before his March concert – 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.
Anaphylaxis develops within minuteswhile 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: COVID-19 Vaccines Do NOT Cause SADS
Coolio could have died from SADS (Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome), but there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines cause SADS.
In fact, this is a rather ludicrous claim as SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!
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.
Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.
SADS is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.
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.

Fact #8: 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 single combination of blood clots in large veins of the brains, abdomen and lungs, together with low platelet counts leading to bleeding tendencies.

Fact #9: 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 hospitalized or dying from COVID-19.
Even prominent antivaxxer Steve Kirsch is healthy and well, despite being fully-vaccinated against COVID-19!
Fact #10: 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…
