Pilots in Flight at Higher Risk of Death from Myocarditis After mRNA COVID Shots Says Army Surgeon

Pilots in Flight at Higher Risk of Death from Myocarditis After mRNA COVID Shots Says Army Surgeon

A United States senior army surgeon Lieutenant Colonel Theresa Long, MD, MPH, who specializes in infectious diseases, filed an affidavit under the Military Whistleblower Protection Act against the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for active duty military personnel.1

Her affidavit states that there is risk of myocarditis and pericarditis, which involves inflammation of the heart, associated with the mRNA COVID-19 biologics manufactured by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna.2

Affidavit Warns of Possibility of Vaccinated Army Pilots Dying While in Flight

According to the affidavit, Lt. Col. Long serves as the Brigade Surgeon for the 1st Aviation Brigade Ft. Rucker, Alabama and is responsible for certifying the health, mental and physical ability, and readiness for 4,000 individuals on flight status on this post.3

Lt. Col. Long warns that army pilots are at a risk of dying in flight after receiving mRNA COVID-19 vaccines due to the risk of myocarditis and complications, including sudden cardiac death.4 5 She states:

By virtue of their occupations, said flight crews present extraordinary risks to themselves and others given the equipment they operate, munitions carried thereon and areas of operation in close proximity to populated areas.6

Lt. Col. Long adds:

The majority of young new army aviators are in their early twenties. We know there is a risk of myocarditis with each mRNA vaccination. Because the vaccines produced by Pfizer and Moderna both have been linked to myocarditis, especially in young males between 16-24 years old, it is reasonable to conclude that these shots pose a serious risk to many humans due to direct adverse effect or allergic reaction.7

CDC Acknowledges Health Inflammation Complications after mRNA COVID-19 Vaccinations

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has acknowledged that there is a risk of myocarditis and pericarditis associated with Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. The CDC’s website states that cases of myocarditis have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shortly after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination, particularly in male adolescents and young adults after the second dose, and usually within several days of vaccination.8

Lt. Col. Long also cited that, according to a report in the National Center for Biotechnology Information, which is a part of U.S. National Library of Medicine, the immediate complications of myocarditis include ventricular dysrhythmias, left ventricular aneurysm, congestive heart failure, and dilated cardiomyopathy. The mortality rate is up to 20 percent at one year and 50 percent at five years. The report adds that, despite optimal medical management, overall mortality for myocarditis has not changed in the last 30 years.9

Lt. Col. Long also has concerns that the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has not followed up with their original guidance of requiring an MRI scan of each pilot following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination.10
She says:

There is no functional myocardial screening currently being conducted. It is my professional opinion that substantial foreseen risks currently exist, which require proper screening of all flight crews. Based on the DOD’s own protocols and studies, the only two valuable methodologies to adequately assess this risk are through MRI imaging or cardio biopsy which must be carried-out.11

    Someone a friend knows (a younger girl, formerly healthy) now needs a heart transplant from taking the DNA shot.

    Having pilots or anyone else get this experimental unproven to be safe mRNA changing inoculation is not about health or “protecting us”.

    I have been handing out LTC Dr.Theresa Long’s Affidavit to everyone I know, her investigative studies are well documented and the truth is finally being told, that the shots must stop immediately.

    …and what about commercial airline pilots responsible for1,000s of passengers every day? I know, many are well past the age group mentioned here; but I also know that not all are “retired” military pilots. I see at least some young pilots both in the right seat and the left seat that had the dollars to make it there on their own without military service.

    I do not see any evidence of rates of this versus rates of death or serious illness due to contracting the Coronavirus. I wonder why? Wait, I already know.
    Furthermore, vaccine-related myocarditis effects are outweighed by the substantial benefits from preventing COVID-related hospitalizations, ICU admissions and deaths in each age/sex group, even for those at relatively highest risk of vaccine-related myocarditis and lowest risk of COVID-related adverse outcomes. Patient-level data from two large integrated health networks across multiple states confirm a very low incidence of vaccine-related myocarditis (0.5 to 1 case per 100,000 completely vaccinated individuals) and a very mild clinical course.3

    This situation is urgent. People are becoming more fearful, more passive, more accepting of the “Nanny” state. I want to know precisely what action I can take as an individual to help stop it.

    Pam Lewellen, I have an 18 year old great-nephew in the hospital right now with heart inflammation. In this particular case this boy did have a hole in his heart that was repaired, but statistically speaking, he had almost no risk from Covid itself whatsoever. The mortality rate for Covid for even elderly people is something over 99%. Despite the odd occurrence where for whatever reason someone does get very ill and dies from Covid, the vast majority experience it as a bad cold or a flu. I had it in April, and while it is no day in the park and I was out of commission for a month, it isn’t the most sick I’ve ever been, it was the most weirdly sick I have ever been. Thank Fauci and his gain of function funding for that, because there is no doubt in my mind, it’s manufactured.
    Children are at virtually no risk from Covid.
    Teens and young adults up to age 30 are at virtually no risk from Covid.
    Only obese people, including younger people, and those over 70 are at higher risk.
    In my small state in New England, 50 young people developed myocarditis. Now that may be a small risk to you, but did you read this article that says for ALL myocarditis (there is no such thing as mild) the mortality rate is 20? Over five years the mortality rate is 50%? That means, half of those 50 young people are at risk of DEATH within 5 years. You fail to see the forest for the trees. In your passion for zero percent risk for yourself, over a disease not likely to kill you, you are wiling to risk young people who have virtually NO chance of dying from Covid. How cavalier we are with the lives of others. People like you believe in zero risk. Why do you not demand we not ride in vehicles, since car accidents claim more lives every day than Covid? Why do you not demand we fill in all swimming pools, since more young people drown than die of Covid? Or suicides, which have rocketed since you worriers have turned life into a constant hysteria and wrecked the lives of many, including young people?
    Myocarditis, anaphylaxis, and the many other situations you can read about in places like 1000 Covid Stories or other sites, including disabilities, blindness, seizures, coma, dystonia, neurological effects, these are not nothing because the didn’t happen to YOU. God help us figure out how to circumvent people who defend this shot like it’s their mother, believe every nonsensical lie the elites tell them, and who try to inflict their will on others and the liberty to make their own decisions about what injections they will or will not take into their own bodies.

    Add to this the fact that we know with 100% certainty, thanks to data from Israel and the UK, that the vaccinated are just as, if not more, able to catch and transmit Covid, and that natural immunity from surviving Covid is superior to what the vax provide, and if people had any ability to use reason and logic, they would see what what is going on makes no sense at all. Or that we are losing our freedom by submitting to a world wide coercion event.

    Does altitude and pressure gradient changes contribute to the increased risk from Covid shots? If so then anyone taking a flight that has been Covid shot is at an increased risk. However, not all cockpits/cabins are pressurized equally. Or, if the risk is the same for pilots etc whether on the ground or in the air, then the increased risk is from the crash that might result as opposed to a co-pilot being able to take over and fly safely.

    ??? What is it about Pilots that makes them higher risk?
    Age?
    Sex?
    Low air pressure?
    High acceleration aka G-force?

    Do civilian pilot and passenger have same risks?

      Ron,

      They aren’t saying the pilots are at higher risk. They are at the SAME risk as everyone else, but they are in command of 100 tons of airborne metal, with hundreds of lives on board. If they die at work, it gets really ugly for a lot of people.

    You’re 0.5 to 1 in 100,000 statistic is patently wrong.

    USA is 50% vaxxed
    150,000,000 roughly

    150,000,000/1500=100,000

    I’ll admit I don’t currently have the updated myocarditis figures on VAERS, but even using figures from July, your calculations are way off. Furthermore, I know, for a fact, that despite the evidence of 5 to 6000 deaths being removed from VAERS ON July 22-23 (you can check via waybackmachine), inexplicably and for no stated reason (hard to imagine people would take the time to fake reports since most doctors actually complain of the cumbersome nature of reporting, or that reports don’t even get registered…) as well as a CMS whistleblower, currently in court with Thomas Renz. Who stated, under oath, that death figures are being suppressed and closer to 45,000… but despite all that, for the sake of argument, let’s use official numbers…

    2,200 myocarditis reported by July.
    2,200/1500 is already 1.5 per 100,000 (again, using outdated, and falsely lowered statistics).

    In Ontario, Canada. Males have 1/8500 chance of Myocarditis… to use to 1/100,000 ratio:
    8500×11.764706=~100,000
    1×11.7= 11.7 per 100,000

    Now lets look at deaths, from all causes, related to vaccination; arguably more severe.

    Again using VAERS, currently over ~16,300 deaths.
    16,300/1500= 10.86 per 100,000

    None of these are even close to the 0.5 – 1 per 100,000.

    Where did you come up with this?

    If you are actually interested in the truth and not merely a paid shill for pharma, astroturfing for shekels, I encourage you to fact check me.

    The one real fact here is that we can use any numbers depending on the sites we “dig into”. Fact, three people I have known for over 30 years are dead from Covid with no damn vaccine. In my fifty years of life, I have yet to know anyone that has died from the flu, influenza, measles, mumps, chickenpox, Hep…or any other virus/bacteria! Those are my facts. I am not fully for any vaccine. I am fully for titre testing on any vaccine and to avoid ingredients like mercery. And lastly, as I have said from the beginning…I would rather my son and I turn into the first zombies rather than having to fight them to survive…funny/not funny

    Vaccines carry risks as well as drugs and surgeries. It cannot be mandatory, period. Biden can’t get it through his thick skull. I can’t support his covid 19 proposal. It’s really horrifying.

    I dont kown, but, I’m 82yrs old, I’ve had two shots & just had my third shot as a buster. I had the Flu if 1957, while in the Army & almost died from it, it was a bad flu like civid, but I dont know whaT it
    was called. I don’t have any reactions from the shots, I also got a regular flu shot, for the year.
