COVID vaccination

COVID vaccination lowers cardiovascular and stroke risk

Recent studies confirm COVID-19 vaccination significantly reduces the risk of cardiovascular events like heart attacks and strokes. A Korean study showed a 58% decrease in such risks post-vaccination, corroborating similar findings from previous U.S. research. The evidence is clear: vaccinations are crucial in preventing severe post-COVID complications and saving lives.

NFL star Travis Kelce posts a heart photo — anti-vaxxers go crazy

NFL star Travis Kelce, tagged “Mr. Pfizer,” came under anti-vaccine fire for an Instagram post where he made a heart shape with his hands, sparking baseless claims of vaccine dangers. Contrary to myths, COVID-19 vaccines have a much lower myocarditis risk than the virus itself, and other heart issues aren’t linked to the vaccine. The American Heart Association endorses vaccines, especially for those with heart conditions. Kelce’s gesture likely celebrated the Super Bowl win or expressed love, not a vaccine warning.
