Some are noting that Gen. Powell was fully vaccinated against COVID19, but it’s extremely important to bear in mind that he was also suffering from multiple myeloma and therefore at high risk despite the vaccine:

“Fully Vaccinated” Colin Powell dies from Covid. RIP
It is a very dangerous narrative the media puts out when not mentioning Colin Powell was also battling Multiple Myeloma which put him at a much higher risk. Facts Matter.

Guys…fact that Colin Powell was vaccinated and had complications from COVID is NOT EVIDENCE THE VACCINE DOES NOT WORK.
He was 84. I don't know what other comorbidities he had, but he was suffering from multiple myeloma. He was not a healthy man.
Stop saying stupid things.
