The pilot sounded to me to be stressed out by 'archaic travel restrictions' on his route and conflicted by a vax mandate from his airline.

Notwithstanding his claims for his own robustness I assess his state as VERY stressed.

So reluctantly, resentfully, and perhaps seethingly, he gets the vax and then the afib. Association is not causation, but we don't know enough about other associations he may have brought to the table.

That said, I'm going with stress and, especially, anger.

Possible causes of an arrhythmia

An arrhythmia occurs when something goes wrong with the electrical signals in the heart. There are many more common causes of arrhythmias than the COVID-19 vaccine.

Several factors can contribute to or cause arrhythmia. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Trusted Source, various types of heart and blood vessel diseases, such as heart attack, heart inflammation, and congenital heart disease, can cause arrhythmia.

Other possible causes include:

too little or too much thyroid hormones
illegal drug use, such as amphetamines
dehydration
viral infections
caffeine
high or low blood sugar levels
extreme stress or emotions, such as anger
low levels of electrolytes, such as calcium and potassium
