MLB Hall of Famer Hank Aaron dies of Stroke Days After getting COVID19 Vaccine

Baseball legend Hank Aaron, former UN Ambassador Andrew Young and former Health and Human Services Secretary Louis Sullivan got vaccinated against COVID-19 at the Morehouse School of Medicine on Tuesday January 5th, hoping to send a message to Black Americans that the shots are safe. Seventeen days later, he unfortunately passed from was is being reported to be a massive stroke.

Rolling up their sleeves to take the first of two doses of the Moderna vaccine, these and other civil rights leaders visiting a brand-new Morehouse health clinic acknowledged the legacy of mistrust many Black people have toward medical research, stemming from the infamous Tuskegee experiment that left Black men to suffer needlessly.

Aaron can be seen talking and operating just fine in the video below, prior to getting the vaccine.

 

According to a person with knowledge, Aaron died Friday morning after suffering a massive stroke. The person requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

“We are absolutely devastated by the passing of our beloved Hank,” Terry McGuirk, Braves chairman, said in a statement. “He was a beacon for our organization first as a player, then with player development, and always with our community efforts. His incredible talent and resolve helped him achieve the highest accomplishments, yet he never lost his humble nature. Henry Louis Aaron wasn’t just our icon, but one across Major League Baseball and around the world.  His success on the diamond was matched only by his business accomplishments off the field and capped by his extraordinary philanthropic efforts.”
