Danish Soccer star Christen Ericksen collapsed during the Euro 2021 playoff match today. He nearly died during the game and his heart was restarted on the pitch. There are conflicting reports regarding whether Eriksen was vaccinated.
Inter Milan player Eriksen, 29, dropped to the ground at the Parken Stadium shortly before half-time, leaving players from both teams in clear distress; English referee Anthony Taylor called medics on to the pitch and Eriksen’s heart was restarted and he underwent prolonged CPR treatment, which saved his life.

There are conflicting reports regarding whether Eriksen was vaccinated.
An Italian sports site reports he has not been vaccinated — “He did not have Covid and was not vaccinated either. At this moment, Eriksen is under the guidance of the Danish medical staff.”
But several tweets suggested that the chief medic and cardiologist of the Italian team confirmed via Italian radio that Eriksen had received his Pfizer vaccine on the 31 May.

Inflammation and swelling of the heart, a condition known as Myocarditis, has been identified in many youngsters who have received their dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
Although experts are still looking into the matter, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed over 200 cases of myocarditis after COVID-19 vaccination in people 30 or below.
Recently, the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) safety committee added another blood condition to the potential side effects of AstraZeneca’s vaccine branded as Covishield in India – the Capillary Leak Syndrome.
Capillary leak syndrome is a condition that causes fluid to leak out of blood vessels and could cause very low blood pressure, leading to pain, nausea and tiredness or, in the worst case, kidney failure and strokes.
