Florida Surgeon General: COVID Vaccine Increases Chance of Cardiac Death in Young Men by 84%

Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo last night said that the COVID-19 vaccines would not have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) if it had been known that the jabs caused an 84% increase in cardiac deaths among young men on Monday’s episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

“If it had been known two years ago or so, that this vaccine would increase cardiac deaths in young men by 84%, would they have approved it? The obvious answer is no,” said Ladapo.

“You would never give something to someone who is young and healthy and increase their risk of dying from sudden cardiac death by 84%” the Florida Surgeon General explained.

“But people are often, their response is ‘Well you know, I don’t know, COVID is pretty bad’ Yes. COVID can be terrible,” Ladapo said. “But we don’t give people medications that kill them!”

Last Friday, Ladapo officially recommended against receiving mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, particularly for males aged 18 to 39 due to an increased risk (84%) of cardiac-related death.

“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, tweeted Ladapo.

“This decision is flawed and a far cry from the science: COVID-19 vaccines have been proven safe and effective, and severe adverse reactions are rare,” said U.S. Department of Health and Human Services spokesperson Sarah Lovenheim in a statement in response to Ladapo’s announcement

. “Vaccines were evaluated in tens of thousands of participants in clinical trials and since then, tens of millions of Americans have received COVID-19 vaccines.”

Amid backlash from the Biden administration, Twitter abruptly censored Ladapo’s tweet, but ultimately reinstated it within a few hours. Neither the Florida Department of Health nor Twitter would respond to media outlets request for comment.

However, Ladapo has not backed down from his assertions. In a lenghty Twitter thread posted yesterday, the Florida health official responded to what he described as “the more substantive critics” and expressed his approval of a renewed national discussion surrounding the controversial jabs.

“We used all of our data resources-test results, vaccine records, death records- to exclude individuals who had documented COVID-19 infection, as we write in the Methods section,” he explained. “Elevated cardiac risk was also found in older men, and there were thousands of deaths in this group.”

“The total cardiac deaths meeting inclusion criteria among young men was 77, not 20, as has been going around the web,” Ladapo continued. “Even if the sample size was half of what is is, if events cluster after an exposure, that is valuable information about causation.”

“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,” Ladapo said.
