The claim: Lisa Marie Presley shared post about getting the COVID-19 vaccine before her death

A Jan. 13 Instagram post (direct link, archive link) discusses the recent death of singer Lisa Marie Presley alongside a screenshot of a 2022 Facebook post on the COVID-19 vaccine.

"The idea of having a regular life like we used to, going out with family and friends and having quality time with them, motivated me to get vaccinated because I'm not only protecting myself, I'm also protecting others," reads the Facebook post from a user identified as "Lisa Marie."

The Instagram post's caption reads: "Lisa Marie Presley. No Coincidences. Are You AWAKE YET?!?! Cardiac Arrest."

Our rating: False

The post wasn't shared by Presley before her death, it was shared by a beauty blogger named Lisa Marie Borjas. There's no evidence linking the COVID-19 vaccine and Presley's death.

Post was shared by a different woman with a similar name

Presley died on Jan. 13 after suffering an apparent cardiac arrest at her home.

Presley didn't publish the post in question, however. The post was shared in March 2022 by a beauty blogger named Lisa Marie Borjas, who shared the post on her Instagram the same day.

The original Facebook post shows pictures of Borjas in a green top that are cropped out of the screenshot circulating now.

Presley, on the other hand, didn't mention the COVID-19 vaccine on her Facebook or Twitter before her death.

The singer's cause of death has not yet been announced, and there is no evidence linking her death to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Fact check: Post falsely claims doctor tweeted she does not regret vaccine, even if it kills her

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner deferred Presley's cause of death, meaning they've requested further investigation into the case before examining it again at a later time, according to CBS News.

She is the latest target of an online trend linking celebrities' deaths and injuries to the COVID-19 vaccine. USA TODAY previously debunked claims that DJ Might Mouse's death and Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin's cardiac arrest were caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

USA TODAY reached out to the user who shared the post for comment.

This claim has been debunked by AFP and Reuters as well.
