Kaminsky died from diabetic ketoacidosison April 23rd of this year. It appears he got the jab on April 12. The vaccinations are known to trigger hyperglycemic emergencies which can lead to death from diabetic ketoacidosison. But don’t suggest that an otherwise healthy 40-year-old could die suddenly and his death might have been triggered by the vaccine or you will be lambasted, like Alex Brereson was. Scientifically, the possibility is there, but friends and family are certain the vax had nothing to do with it. How do they know? They don’t. Why are they so certain? Because Dan was pro-vaxx.

We don’t know why Dan died suddenly, and it is a tragic event. I can completely understand why the family would want the privacy of not having his death become politicized. That’s fair. But in a culture where the unvaxxed are vilified, and accused of causing others to die, the road must be a two way street. Has our vanity become so great that we are willing to silence science to save face rather than let science lead us to conclusions that might save lives? If the vaccine could trigger hyperglycemic emergencies and put diabetics at risk, shouldn’t we have that information and shouldn’t that be investigated? If it’s not, are we not guilty of putting lives at risk? In our vanity, we need to be careful that our pride doesn’t cloud our willingness to consider the safety of the vaccine. Otherwise, we have a situation, which seems to be true, where the cautionary COVID vaxxers can do no right, and the pro-vaxx camp can do no wrong.


Dan Kaminsky died in San Francisco at the age of 42 on April 23, 2021.

He a computer security expert, well-known in that tight-knit community, with almost 100,000 followers on Twitter.

He was also a strong supporter of mRNA Covid vaccinations. On April 16, he tweeted that they were “astoundingly clever.” And on April 12, he proudly reported that he had been “vaxxed!”

Eleven days later he was dead.

I can’t remember how I came across Kaminsky’s death, but I did. I checked to see if he had publicly reported being vaccinated; he had. And so I tweeted on April 25 (those were the days before Twitter had censored me):

“So another well-known person in his forties – not a true celebrity, but someone with a sizable Twitter following – “died suddenly” Friday. No cause of death given, and his family wants privacy. These cases have popped with disturbing frequency since December.”

I didn’t use Kaminsky’s name. I didn’t think doing so would be appropriate.

Nonetheless his friends knew I was referring to him. And they didn’t like anyone pointing out a possible connection between his death and the vaccines.

His niece put out a statement explaining that he had died of diabetic ketoacidosis, a dangerous complication of diabetes caused by very high blood sugar and low insulin levels. “I think Dan would laugh at the idea of conspiracy theorists promoting anti-vax propaganda through his death,” she wrote.

Case closed, the bluechecks said.

One called me a “filthy liar.” (So many people to sue for defamation, so little time.) Brian Stelter of CNN mentioned Kaminsky’s death too, in a story about “baseless speculation” and the “miraculously effective Covid-19 vaccines.”
