The Anti-Vaccine Movement’s Focused Interest: A Rare Myocarditis Death Case

Before he got his 2nd Covid-19 vaccine shot, it wasn’t clear that George Watts Jr., 24 would die since he appeared to be in good health. His family claims he was cautious. He collapsed in his room at his parent’s house in Elmira, New York on October 27, 2021 and was rushed to the hospital where he died. The cause of death, per the medical examiner, was “Covid-19 vaccine-related myocarditis,” a rare heart inflammation that can develop after being vaccinated. This incident is being used as a warning by anti-vaccine communities. Family interviews and medical experts raise questions about this story. Studies show a slight increase in myocarditis risk from Covid-19 vaccines, particularly in young men. Critiques state that mainstream misinformation about vaccine risks is reaching a wider audience and the death was linked to vaccination through the death certificate.
