Letter Urges Vaccinated NFL Players Undergo Cardiac Screening


The Health Freedom Defense Fund has urged the NFL Players’ Association to offer players cardiac screening due to concerns about the potential side effects of the COVID-19 jab.

Myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation, is a primary concern for NFL players who received the experimental shot.

Young males have the highest risk of myocarditis following the experimental mRNA gene therapy.

Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo released a report saying there was an 84% increase in the incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination.

He recommended that males from 18 to 39 do NOT take the mRNA COVID-19 jab.

Since most professional football players received the COVID-19 shot, Leslie Manookian, president and founder of the Health Freedom Defense Fund, urged the NFLPA to screen players for potential cardiac-related side effects.

According to, nearly 95% of the league's players by 2022 received the shot.

The NFL's COVID-19 vaccination rate as of January 13 is as follows:

  • Nearly 95% of NFL players are vaccinated; nearly 100% of NFL personnel are vaccinated.
  • With such a highly vaccinated population, the NFL environment is not comparable to anywhere else in society. We will continue to work with the NFLPA with the goal of having 100% of players vaccinated.

“A multitude of adverse reactions to these injections, including myocarditis, are wide ranging and confirmed, and as such, prudence dictates that the NFLPA investigate the extent to which the COVID-19 shots may have resulted in injury, compromised health or death of players,” Leslie Manookian said.

NTD shared The Epoch Times report:

She pointed out that Damar Hamlin, a safety for the Buffalo Bills, suffered a cardiac arrest on the field during a Monday Night Football game in January. The reason for the incident remains unknown; Hamlin declined to convey what his doctors told him during a recent televised interview. Former NFL players have also suffered heart attacks and strokes following vaccination.

The NFLPA should introduce “a testing and screening program to determine whether players have been adversely affected by the injections and to develop a set of functional medical protocols and treatments in order to address and heal any deleterious effects of the vaccines,” Manookian said.

The NFLPA declined to comment to The Epoch Times.

The association has not responded to the letter, which was sent via email and regular mail, Manookian told The Epoch Times.

Former NFL player Ken Ruettgers, who started the Voices for Medical Freedom podcast, previously warned an associate who works for the NFLPA of post-vaccination cardiac events and offered to connect the group with doctors with knowledge of the issues.
