A 36-year-old man in Madison County, Tennessee died unexpectedly on Sept. 25, 2021, three days after receiving the second dose of Pfizer/BioNTech’s experimental messenger RNA (mRNA) BNT162b2 biologic for COVID-19. Timothy Adam Hornsby was vaccinated on Sept. 22 and started feeling ill the next morning. His health took a turn for the worse two days later.1 2 3 4
In a news report, Hornsby’s father said:
He said he felt bad, he had chills, aches, pain, headaches, legs hurting. My wife got up and noticed it was getting late in the morning and then she went in his bed room, opened the curtains and was talking to him. He didn’t respond so she pulled the covers out and found that he had passed.1 3 4
“If he had known what the shot would’ve done, the adverse reactions to the shot, he wouldn’t have taken it. The only reason why he took it is because I have cancer and he didn’t want to bring COVID on to me because I wouldn’t make it through COVID,” said Hornsby’s father. “What we’re hoping is that the message would get out there about the adverse reactions to these vaccines. He took the Pfizer vaccine and three days later he passed.”1 3 4
Thai Girl Dies Days After Receiving Second Dose of Pfizer Shot
Another death days after administration of the second dose of Pfizer’s BNT162b2 biologic occurred in Thailand. On Nov. 3, 16-year-old Ornjira Jaroonroj Na Ayutthaya died in the city of Lampang after receiving the shot on Oct. 27. According to the Bangkok Post, the girl developed a fever soon after being vaccinated, so she took the analgesic Paracetamol (acetaminophen) and went to sleep. The following day, she experienced diarrhea and vomiting. She was unable to eat and suffered from exhaustion.5 6 7
On the third day, the girl felt abdominal pain and was unable to stand. She continued vomiting and developed problems breathing. At that point, her parents called emergency services and was rushed to Lampang Hospital, where she was placed on a ventilator and died five days later.5 6 7
The death certificate issued by the hospital attributed the child’s death to blood clotting (thrombosis) in the lungs.7
There have been numerous cases of blood clotting following vaccination with the experimental AstraZeneca/Oxford University and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID shots, leading to suspension of those vaccines in a few countries.8 9 10 11 12 13 14 A study conducted earlier this year by Oxford University found that blood clotting was as prevalent following vaccination with the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna/NIAID COVID shots as with the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine.15
