Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo continues to draw attention to studies that indicate the COVID mRNA shots have significant health safety concerns even as the federal government still presses Americans to take them.
Ladapo commented on social media regarding a study published in November at Clinical Research in Cardiology which examined autopsies of 35 individuals who died unexpectedly within 20 days post-COVID-19 vaccination. Researchers found:
Among the 35 cases of the University of Heidelberg, autopsies revealed other causes of death (due to pre-existing illnesses) in 10 patients … Hence, these were excluded from further analysis. Cardiac autopsy findings consistent with (epi-)myocarditis were found in five cases of the remaining 25 bodies found unexpectedly dead at home within 20 days following SARS-CoV-2 vaccination.
“Three of the deceased persons were women, two men,” the researchers noted. “Median age at death was 58 years (range 46–75 years). Four persons died after the first vaccine jab, the remaining case after the second dose. All persons died within the first week following vaccination (mean 2.5 days, median 2 days).”
Thanks, @TracyBethHoeg, for highlighting these results that are consistent with Florida’s analysis. Autopsies found that 5/35 people who died suddenly within 20 days of COVID-19 vaccination had myocarditis as a likely/possible cause of death. https://t.co/k9OsU7FcDh

“Autopsies found that 5/35 people who died suddenly within 20 days of COVID-19 vaccination had myocarditis as a likely/possible cause of death,” Ladapo observed, adding:
These deaths aren’t captured by other studies because these patients never made it to the hospital … mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are far less safe than any vaccines widely used. When does sanity return to science? Why do scientists breathlessly defend this technology?

In another study published in BMJ’s Journal of Medical Ethics, researchers conducted a risk/benefit assessment, and ethical analysis of COVID shot mandates for young people at universities.
“Great analysis by outstanding research team showing that mRNA COVID-19 booster mandates likely harm more college students than they help,” Ladapo posted. “Remarkably, universities are willfully turning a blind eye. Students, be aware!”

The researchers noted that college-age students are at relatively low risk of the virus.
They observed that to “prevent one COVID-19 hospitalisation over a 6-month period, we estimate that 31,207–42,836 young adults aged 18–29 years must receive a third mRNA vaccine.”
“Booster mandates in young adults are expected to cause a net harm: per COVID-19 hospitalisation prevented, we anticipate at least 18.5 serious adverse events from mRNA vaccines, including 1.5–4.6 booster-associated myopericarditis cases in males (typically requiring hospitalisation),” they stated.
Taking time off this season? Get your updated vaccine before you gather with loved ones. It’s free, and you’ll have some peace of mind for gift exchanges, cookie baking, and everything in between.

Regarding the ethics of mandating mRNA shots for college students, the researchers concluded such mandates are “unethical” because they:
- (1) are not based on an updated (Omicron era) stratified risk-benefit assessment for this age group;
- (2) may result in a net harm to healthy young adults;
- (3) are not proportionate: expected harms are not outweighed by public health benefits given modest and transient effectiveness of vaccines against transmission;
- (4) violate the reciprocity principle because serious vaccine-related harms are not reliably compensated due to gaps in vaccine injury schemes; and
- (5) may result in wider social harms.
“We consider counterarguments including efforts to increase safety on campus but find these are fraught with limitations and little scientific support,” the research team asserted.
In October, Twitter blocked, and subsequently restored, Ladapo’s post that noted his office’s analysis that showed an increase in cardiac-related deaths among young men after taking the mRNA COVID shots.
Today, we released an analysis on COVID-19 mRNA vaccines the public needs to be aware of. This analysis showed an increased risk of cardiac-related death among men 18-39. FL will not be silent on the truth.

Ladapo’s tweet referenced his office’s guidance regarding the results of the Florida Health Department’s analysis.
The guidance stated:
This analysis found there is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination. Individuals with preexisting cardiac conditions, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, should take particular caution when considering vaccination and discuss with their health care provider.
Finally, is it really that hard to imagine that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines that increase myocarditis in young men by 10x, 20x, or 30x (see Karlstad et al,
JAMA Cardiology, 2022) also increase the risk of cardiac death in that age group?
Of course it's not, and we all know that. 😉

Based on the data, the state’s health department said “patients should be informed of the possible cardiac complications that can arise after receiving a mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.”
“With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group,” the guidance continues.
“The State Surgeon General now recommends against the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines for males ages 18-39 years old,” reads the statement.
Thank you, @SenRonJohnson, for your dedication. Adverse effects of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines should be addressed with scientifically appropriate attention, rather than the see-no-evil attitude from the FDA and CDC. Pure propaganda. pic.twitter.com/U80HuZguvo

Civil rights attorney Aaron Siri, who participated in Senator Ron Johnson’s (R-WI) COVID vaccine roundtable last week, detailed data from the CDC’s V-Safe reporting system showed about 7.7 percent, or 800,000 of V-Safe’s 10 million participants, reported requiring medical care post-COVID mRNA shot.
According to Siri, “25 percent of those people needed emergency care or were hospitalized, and another 48 percent sought urgent care,” LifeSiteNews reported.
“Also, another 25 percent on top of the 7.7 percent reported being unable to work or go to school,” he stated.
Don’t miss out on fun this season. Whether you want to make it to a holiday party or hug your older relatives, getting an updated #COVID19 vaccine to defend against Omicron can help keep everyone safer.

Internist, cardiologist, and pioneer of early treatment of COVID infection Dr. Peter McCullough wrote in his Substack column following his participation in the roundtable.
“The session concluded our federal agencies were reckless, willfully blind, and failed to mitigate risk and protect Americans from injuries, disabilities, and death after vaccination,” he asserted. “There was a call for removal of all COVID-19 vaccines from the market, dissolution of all mandates, and a pivot toward vaccine injury research and treatment. Let historians record.”
