Bodybuilder and fitness “expert” Doug Brignole was very public when he decided to get his COVID shot. Here is what he wrote:

“We’re all in this together, so let’s do our share to beat it. I have enough confidence in the vaccine, based on my research, to get it done. Those of you who think the vaccine kills people can use me as a test. If I die, you were right.”

That was written in an April 4, 2021, Facebook post.

Eighteen months later, Brignole died at 62 years old. His cause of death, according to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s report was COVID infection.

Steve Kirsch, though, wrote that he found out from someone who knew Brignole that the bodybuilder received a booster less than a week before his death.

Kirsch had speculated earlier that it was “highly likely” one of the preparations Brignole made prior to the Oct. 22, 2022 AAU Mr. Universe contest in Las Vegas was to get boosted. Kirsch wrote getting boosted at least two weeks before the event would qualify Brignole as being “fully protected.”

Kirsch wrote:

“On Oct. 17, 2022, I spoke to a woman (her initials are AT) who knows Doug arguably better than anyone else in the world, including his brother Herman Brignole. I asked her whether Doug was killed by the vaccine. She indicated she knows the answer but said, ‘That’s not something I can talk about.’ And that’s really all you need to know, isn’t it?”
