76-year-old Eric Clapton recently got the AstraZeneca vaccine and wouldn’t you know it, he had a bad reaction to both his shots. Clearly, that means that vaccines are fraudulent propaganda and that the COVID-19 vaccine rollout is sinister. Right? No? Well, Eric sure has been convinced. After his bout with some uncomfortable symptoms, Eric has taken up a very anti-vaccine, anti-lockdown stance and has written a letter blaming “propaganda” on his “disastrous” experience. Eric has said before that his cover of the song Cocaine is actually an anti-drug song so expect him to an anti-vaxxer version soon.
Time to add Eric to the genius members of society like Kristin Cavallari, Jenny McCarthy, and Anwar Hadid. Eric had previously collaborated with Van Morrison for and anti-lockdown song Stand and Deliver, last December. And it seems he’s chosen to continue the bullshit. Rolling Stone says that Eric wrote a letter to anti-lockdown activist (what the fuck does that mean?–that is not a thing), Robin Monotti Graziadei, which detailed his awful experience getting vaccinated. The letter was then shared by Robin with Eric’s permission and it is dumb as Hell. He wrote, via NY Post:
“I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days. I recovered eventually and was told it would be twelve weeks before the second one…”
Reminder about vaccines: Sometimes you get symptoms. But bitch, I’d rather have vaccine symptoms than Coronavirus symptoms. Eric Clapton went on:
Clapton added that he was actually offered the second shot six weeks later, which he accepted despite his initial reaction as he had “a little more knowledge of the dangers.”
“Needless to say the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again.” Clapton added that he “should’ve never gone near the needle” due to his “peripheral neuropathy,” but the “propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone.”
Yeah, everyone doesn’t have peripheral neuropathy. Eric really plays the victim of all victims and acts like rejecting medical science makes him a martyr of rebellion:
“I continue to tread the path of passive rebellion and try to tow the line in order to be able to actively love my family, but it’s hard to bite my tongue with what I now know… I’ve been a rebel all my life, against tyranny and arrogant authority, which is what we have now. But I also crave fellowship, compassion and love… I believe with these things we can prevail.”
Eric’s latest anti-vax rant also reminded people of how much of a non-racist peach (read: the opposite of that) he is:
He's an awful person with awful opinions and I recommend not listening to him at all. If you must listen to his music, please pirate it.

I’m sure Eric Clapton got all his feelings out in his little emotional letter. Just kidding, It’s only a matter of time before he’s railing at a Costco employee for something COVID-related.
