Now it’s common for young athletes to suddenly suffer from blood clots
“My sole concern right now is that Tamari continues to get the medical care and guidance she needs and begins the gradual process of healing and returning to full strength. This is much bigger than basketball,” Tennessee’s head coach told ESPN.
Key, a 6’6″ senior, is only 21 years old.
While it’s not known whether Key has taken a Covid-19 vaccine, it isn’t unusual for Tennessee players to be vaccinated, with the men’s basketball program boasting an 88% vaccination rate, for example.
The sheer abundance of athletes suffering from blood clots within a year of widespread vaccinations has led to public speculation that the clots are a side effect of the vaccines.
For one thing, anytime there’s another news article on a young athlete suddenly suffering from blood clots, article commentators often ask if the conditions are vaccine related.
