Experimental COVID Vaccines: Mounting Deaths Reported in Media and Social Media Continue… Part 9 of 12


Deaths, serious adverse events, and permanent disabilities following COVID vaccines continue to mount as 423 million doses have been administered in 133 countries worldwide. If all* adverse events and deaths were reported after each experimental COVID vaccine, the U.S. injury reporting system shows: 1 person in 27 would report an adverse event (AE); 1 in 159 to 2,066 would report a serious adverse event (SAE), and 1 in 581 to 7,543 would report a death. Today’s article contains updated death, injury, and disability reports.

* Fewer than 1% of AEs, and 1-13% of SAEs are reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, a CDC-funded study at Harvard Pilgrim. (Lazarus, 2009)

Worldwide Administration of Experimental COVID Vaccines is up to 423 Million Doses in 133 Countries

As COVID vaccination continues worldwide, the latest numbers show that 423 million doses in a total of 133 countries have been administered. In the US alone, about 38% of adults have had one shot, and about half of those have had two doses. For the most recent figures see Table 1:

Experimental COVID Vaccines: The Trail of Death, Serious Injuries, and Disabilities Continues to Mount…

CDC’s phased COVID vaccination program began mid-December with Phase 1a — frontline medical workers and the elderly in long-term care facilities — and continues to leave a trail of death, disabilities, serious injuries, and loss in its wake.

More stories of the deaths among frontline medical workers pour in; many are published on *social media [*injury and deaths reported on social media are unconfirmed]. Thirty-nine-year-old single mother Kassidi Lyn Kurill, a surgical technician from Ogden Utah, died suddenly four days after receiving the second dose of Moderna’s investigational vaccine. Her stepfather shared, “She was healthy, happy, active until she took the shot, she went shopping with her mom, that afternoon when she took the shot.” The following day, Kassidi experienced a headache, nausea, and inability to urinate properly. When she developed a fever, she went to the emergency room where Kassidi was told she was now in urgent need of a liver transplant. She was airlifted to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray for the transplant, but died before she could be stabilized for the procedure.

As Phase 1b — vaccinating other essential frontline workers — is carried out, we are hearing stories of the deaths of teachers following these experimental shots. Anna Maria Mantile, suffered cardiac arrest four days after her Moderna shot.  Anna, a 62-year-old English teacher who lived in Naples, Italy began feeling unwell two hours after receiving the vaccine.  She was transferred to a hospital, where she presented with vomiting and exhaustion, and died from cardiac arrest. A 43-year-old teacher in Marbella (Malaga) Spain suffered a fatal cerebral hemorrhage following the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Reports in the media continue to abound of school closures due to staff becoming ill after receiving vaccines, as well as a wide variety of other frontline workers requiring time off to recover from adverse effects of COVID shots.

As these experimental COVID vaccination programs roll out internationally, we continue to witness reports of the deaths of nurses, doctors, aides, teachers, policemen, sanitation workers, clerks, the elderly and more.

VAERS Latest Data on Adverse Events and Deaths Following Investigational COVID Vaccines

As of March 12th, CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) lists 1,739 deaths in their system — 1,424 in the US, 130 “foreign” and 185 “unknown” — since the experimental COVID vaccine rollout began mid-December. An additional 765 deaths have been published around the world by the media, now including countries such as Argentina, Austria, Mexico, Japan, Peru, South Korea, and Zimbabwe— not previously seen.

For the most recent numbers of deaths following COVID vaccines itemized by country see Table 2.


The distribution of deaths reported by VAERS in the US listed by state is displayed in Table 3.

California continues its lead in deaths following COVID vaccines, with 134 reported to date; Florida is next with 91, followed by Illinois at 80.

The CDC also publishes an up-to-date tally of the number of vaccines administered in each state

During this same period, through March 12th, a total of 38,444 adverse events were reported to VAERS, 6,350 considered serious with 1,739 deaths included (see VAERS data reports).


38,444 Adverse Events Entered in VAERS by March 12, 2021

 6,350 Serious Adverse Events Entered in VAERS by March 12, 2021

1,739 Deaths Entered in VAERS by March 12, 2021

In our previous 8 articles, we have always explained that due to underreporting, the FDA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) data represents far fewer than the number of actual events that have occurred. VAERS is a “… passive reporting system, meaning it relies on individuals to send in reports of their experiences. Anyone can submit a report to VAERS, including parents and patients.” In 2010, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) commissioned a study,Electronic Support for Public Health–Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (ESP:VAERS)”, which was carried out by Harvard consultants. Investigators concluded, “Adverse events from drugs and vaccines are common, but underreported. Although 25% of ambulatory patients experience an adverse drug event, less than 0.3% of all adverse drug events and 1-13% of serious events are reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Likewise, fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported.”

Prior to this article, we routinely reported that fewer than 1% of all vaccine adverse events (AEs) are reported, and calculated the estimated actual number by multiplying those events (i.e., reported to VAERS) by a factor of 100. With the goal of providing greater accuracy, we are now utilizing the full reporting range of 1-13% for serious adverse events (SAEs) — including deaths — instead of only 1%. More accurate figures are obtained by 1) multiplying the number of reported adverse events by 100, to account for the fewer than 1% reported and 2) multiplying the number of reported serious adverse events and deaths by 7.7 (i.e., 13%), and again by 100 (i.e., 1%), to provide the full range of 1-13%. We have also updated all previous articles utilizing this full range.

Thus, more accurate current numbers adjusted for underreporting could be: 3,844,400 adverse events (i.e., calculated at 1% reported), 48,895 to 635,000 serious adverse events (calculated at 1-13% reported), and 13,390 to 173,900 deaths (calculated at 1-13% reported) — if all AEs, SAEs, and deaths were reported to date.


Experimental COVID Vaccines Adverse Event Outcomes by March 12th: Life Threatening, Permanent Disabilities, Congenital Anomalies, Hospitalizations, ER Visits, Office Visits, and Permanent Disabilities


This week we continued tracking the number of adverse events entered in VAERS by March 12th — the date of their last data upload — and the event outcomes. For example, about 18% of people experiencing adverse events following a COVID vaccine presented to the emergency room, while around 11% were hospitalized.


Experimental COVID Vaccines: New Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA)

The latest CDC statistics indicate that 59,214,724 Pfizer-BioNTech and 56,941,640 Moderna, 2,025,349 Janssen/J&J vaccines (plus 132,105 unidentified) have been administered in the US through March 20th. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine received its Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA last December, one week before Moderna’s, and shows a gradually decreasing lead in having administered more vaccines. AstraZeneca’s experimental vaccine was authorized for emergency use in UK end of December, and their rollout began first week of January; India’s brand of the AstraZeneca vaccine, Covishield, began administration in India in mid-January.

China’s COVID-19 Sinovac vaccine received emergency authorization last July in China. China is also producing the Sinopharm vaccine. Sinovac has sold their shots to at least 10 other countries, and market another brand of their vaccine, CoronaVac. All Chinese COVID-19 vaccines use killed virus technology. Sinovac’s vaccine rollouts have begun in at least five other countries, with recent stories of deaths in the news following Sinovac, Sinopharm, and CoronaVac jabs in countries including Indonesia, Mexico (see photo), Peru, Zimbabwe, and the region of Hong Kong.

As previously mentioned, the FDA issued an EUA on Saturday, February 27th for Janssen/Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) one-dose COVID-19 vaccine for use in individuals 18 and older. It began its rollout by shipping 4 million vaccines on Sunday, February 28th, and administration began on March 2nd; the White House said J&J will deliver about 16 million more doses by the end of March, and a total of 100 million by the end of June. An in-depth focus on this new J&J COVID genetically-modified vaccine is presented a little later in this article.

The Gamaleya Research Institute, part of Russia’s Ministry of Health, developed a COVID-19 vaccine called Sputnik V or Gam-Covid-Vac. Their “DNA inside adenoviruses technology” was developed by adding the coronavirus spike protein DNA (i.e., not mRNA like the Pfizer and Moderna shots) to two types of adenoviruses (Ad26 and Ad5), and genetically “…engineered them so they could invade cells but not replicate.”

This vaccine Sputnik V is gaining ground in Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa, and is being administered in more than 40 countries to date. There has not been any media reporting of adverse events following these vaccines in Russia, but the death of an 85-year-old woman was reported via *social media to have occurred 2 days after she received the Sputnik V shot in Argentina last week [*injuries and deaths posted on social media are unconfirmed] See post.



Incidence of Deaths Following COVID-19 Vaccines

Moderna and Pfizer shots are both based on the novel mRNA technology, so it is useful to compare the number of deaths reported after each shot. In VAERS, the reports are roughly equivalent, given the number of shots administered. Moderna has generated 834 VAERS reports, and Pfizer 905. In media and social media, however, the Moderna vaccine seems like it is causing statistically zero deaths (just two) while 452 reports have appeared for Pfizer. We do not yet know why the VAERS dataset doesn’t roughly “tie out” with media/social media regarding the ratio of deaths after each shot. (see Table 4 “Vaccine Deaths by Manufacturer”).

Using data provided by Bloomberg’s COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker, we obtained the total number of vaccine doses administered to Americans by March 12th — the most recent date VAERS uploaded reports to their system — and calculated the estimated incidence of adverse events and deaths reported by VAERS per the number of vaccines administered (see Table 5).



To date:

For every experimental COVID shot given, 1 person in approximately every 27 would report an adverse event (AE); 1 person in approximately every 159 to 2,066 would report a serious adverse event (SAE), and 1 person in approximately every 581 to 7,543 would report a death — if all AEs, SAEs, and  deaths were reported.


This article contains a growing list of deaths and serious injuries that occurred after the experimental COVID vaccine was administered. The death and serious injury reports are culled from the media and from social media, as well as from the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and reporting systems outside the US. Injuries and deaths reported on social media are unconfirmed. Although the deaths and serious injuries are temporally related to the COVID vaccination, Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter cannot claim the COVID vaccine definitively caused the deaths or serious injuries. That said, the symptom patterns and timing are highly suspicious, and tend to follow patterns of adverse events widely recognized to occur after other vaccinations. The death reports serve as anecdotes that may soon establish a pattern. Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter is providing regular updates on newly reported deaths that occur after COVID vaccination. As always, Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter supports fully informed consent and no medical mandates. This is not medical advice.
