No, athletes are not dying from Covid-19 vaccines.

In a 2015 study of NCAA athletes, researchers showed that risks vary by sport and gender. Men’s Division I basketball players had a 10 times higher risk of sudden cardiac death than all NCAA athletes. Male athletes were at greater risk than females, and black males were at greater risk than males overall, the study found.

Dr. Megan Wasfi, a sports cardiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital, who published a review of the study. “But for those short periods where you exercise, the risk increases.”

A revolving list of claims includes 543 unverified reports from around the world of athletes who have died or faced “serious problems” since 2021. It was published by the anti-vaccine website GoodScience.

The list was based on a combination of news reports and entries from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System or VAERS, based on self-reported cases from patients and physicians. Most news reports do not mention whether the deceased was vaccinated. Health officials warn against using VAERS to make decisions about vaccine risks.

There is a well-known and unusual vaccine side effect, called myocarditis, which involves inflammation of the heart muscle. Men and boys receiving the Covid-19 vaccine have an increased risk of developing the condition, which can lead to chest pain and shortness of breath. In extremely rare cases, it can lead to more serious complications, including death.

Doctors say that the risk of developing myocarditis after vaccination is low and that most people with the condition recover faster. One study found that boys and young people infected with Covid-19 were six times more likely to develop myocarditis than those who received the vaccine.

Jan. According to. 20, VAERS received 2,132 initial reports of myocarditis or pericarditis (inflammation of the outer lining of the heart) in people aged 30 and under, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than 48 million people between the ages of 5 and 24 have received at least one dose of the vaccine.

Healthcare providers are required to report any deaths after vaccination, even if there are no signs that they have been caused by the vaccine. The VAERS has received 11,657 reports of individual deaths at some point after vaccination, representing 0.002% of all vaccinated people.
