In an announcement on Twitter by Governor Andy Beshear this afternoon:
“Dr. SarahBeth Hartlage helped save thousands of lives through her tireless and heroic efforts leading vaccinations in Louisville. Britainy and I are sorry to hear of her unexpected passing and we are holding her family, @LouisvilleMetro and @LouMetroHealth in our prayers.”
“Dr. Hartlage will be remembered in our community as a deeply compassionate, inspirational leader who made a switch to public health in the middle of a historic public health crisis, and took command of an amazing team of city workers and volunteers to vaccinate tens of thousands of people in a previously unthinkably short amount of time,” Mayor Greg Fischer wrote in a news release.
“We are stunned and deeply saddened by the sudden and unexpected passing of Dr. SarahBeth Hartlage,” Dr. Sarah Moyer, director of public health and wellness wrote. “Our hearts and prayers are with her family as well as the many employees, partners and volunteers who have worked closely with her over the past two years.”

Sarah Beth Hartlage proclaims herself as the Queen of the COVID Vaccine Per her twitter profile.
I’m a physician, public health director & #CovidVaccine expert. My parents, siblings, grandparents, + spouse are all vaccinated.
My #MedicallyFragile child will get hers as soon as she is age eligible.
According to the below post, even her (soon to be 6 year old) daughter Camille, who was born with Congenital Heart Disease, has been vaccinated with her first dose in November 2021.
Here is a curation of some of her tweets. I will present these without comment.
Just to be clear Ivermectin is listed on the WHO’s essential list of medicines, and is not “horse dewormer”. Ivermectin appears on pages 6 & 26 below.
She wrote this tweet on September 4, 2021, shortly following the statement the FDA made, mocking Ivermectin as a “horse dewormer” in August 2021.
SarahBeth, her husband, and her child were indeed vaccinated, per her own words.
May she rest in peace and may her family find comfort in this difficult time.
What I saw circulate the news outlets today of the announcement of her death, left out all the facts that were publicly available that I presented above.
“One man’s gospel truth is another man’s blasphemous lie. The dangerous thing about people is the way we’ll try to kill anyone whose truth doesn’t agree with ours.”
Her obituary doesn’t shed much light other than: “While she had battled health issues over the last several years, her passing was sudden and unexpected.”
