Louisville’s assistant health director, Dr. SarahBeth Hartlage, joins tens of thousands of others that “died suddenly”.
Hartlage was an aggressive proponent of mRNA covid injections, urging people online, in person, and in briefings with Louisville’s mayor to roll up their sleeves for the shots as soon as possible.
At one point, Hartlage tweeted a photo of herself opening a box of mRNA injections along with a caption explaining that she had just had “a little visit from the Pfizer fairy.”
When federal regulators green-lighted mRNA injections for children as young as five, Hartlage was thrilled. Every chance she got, Hartlage pushed the shots on anyone and everyone. She even ran the city’s vaccine clinic, which injected area residents with nearly 120,000 shots.
Hartlage was a strong proponent for jab mandates. She was not content with just offering the syringes to Kentuckians: she wanted them forced on the people of her city and state.
Then, Hartlage out of the blue Died Suddenly. She was attending a medical conference in Florida when she reportedly suffered a “sudden and unexpected” loss of life. Hartlage was just 36 years old at the time of her death.
A release from Mayor Greg Fischer’s office on Friday announced the passing of Dr. SarahBeth Hartlage, the Associate Medical Director for the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness.
“We are stunned and deeply saddened by the sudden and unexpected passing of 36 yr old Dr. SarahBeth Hartlage,” said Dr. Sarah Moyer, Department of Public Health and Wellness director. “As a result of her leadership, knowledge and planning, thousands of our Louisville residents received life-saving COVID-19 vaccines.”
