Eric Clapton Reveals The Painful Side Effects Of The Vaccine, ‘I Feared I Would Never Play Again’
Eric Clapton recently wrote a letter to anti-lockdown activist Robin Monotti Graziadei in which he detailed the horrible things he experienced following his vaccination and blamed the ‘propaganda’ surrounding the benefits of the vaccine.
Eric Clapton is one of the few rockstars who have been speaking up about the United Kingdom government’s Covid-19 regulations and lockdown restrictions. As you may recall, he released a song named ‘Stand and Deliver‘ in late December 2020, in collaboration with the Northern Irish musician Van Morrison, which protested the government’s approach to the pandemic.
While the song was praised by some, it was also criticized by many and it was censored by numerous websites following its release. One of the most quoted lyrics from the song was ‘Do you wanna be a free man / Do you wanna be a slave?’ which perfectly reflects the message of Clapton’s latest song.
Even though he protested the regulations, he apparently still followed the government’s advice on vaccination. In his letter, Clapton revealed that he took his first shot of AstraZenaca’s Covid-19 vaccine in February and said that he had ‘severe reactions‘ straight away which lasted for ten days.
When he was offered the second shot after two weeks, he thought his body might deal with it in a better way but unfortunately, it didn’t. He stated that the reactions were ‘disastrous’ as his ‘hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks.’ This really scared the musician who started thinking that he might never be able to play again.
He blamed ‘the propaganda’ created about the vaccine and argued that the government is encouraging its citizens to get a vaccination they don’t know the side effects of. Clapton criticized the government for spreading misinformation due to which he risked his life and well-being.
Here’s what Eric Clapton said during the interview:
“In February this year… I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days. About six weeks later I was offered and took the second AZ shot, but with a little more knowledge of the dangers. Needless to say, the reactions were disastrous.”
He went on to describe the side-effects he experienced:
“My hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks. I feared I would never play again. I suffer from peripheral neuropathy and should never have gone near the needle.”
As you may already know, the AstraZenaca Covid-19 vaccine is one of the few that have been approved by the World Health Organization and although it has been made available in the United Kingdom and European Union, it hasn’t been approved by the United States.
