Experimental COVID Vaccines: Mounting Deaths Reported in Media and Social Media … Part 2 of 10

Millions Vaccinated at Warp Speed: More Deaths by “Coincidence?”
The highly anticipated experimental COVID vaccine rollouts continue at warp speed, making history as the largest vaccination campaign ever. As of January 24th, more than 65.6 million shots have been administered worldwide in 51 countries, with an average of about 3.38 million administered daily. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recorded that 21,848,655 COVID vaccines have been given in the USA, with 18,502,131 Americans having received one dose, and 3,26,836 having received a second. A total of 2,567,018 vaccines have been administered in long-term care facilities to date. The initial Phase 1a of the CDC’s phased vaccination program, calls for frontline healthcare workers and the elderly residents of long-term care facilities to receive these investigational vaccines first, and the plan is for “frontline essential workers” (e.g., fire fighters, police officers, corrections officers, food and agricultural workers, postal workers, manufacturing workers, grocery store workers, public transit workers, the educational sector) and people 75-years of age and older to go next in Phase 1b.
Our last article covered 13 deaths reported to the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) by December 30th, and more than a dozen additional deaths reported by the media in both the U.S. and abroad. Updated VAERS data, which is now current through January 15th, shows a total of 181 deaths — 143 in the U.S., 33 “foreign” and 5 “unknown” — which have been reported to VAERS alone. Again, it is important to keep in mind that these COVID-vaccine related adverse events and deaths reported to the VAERS System are known to represent fewer than 1% of all the actual vaccine adverse events and only 1-13% of serious adverse events/deaths. Therefore, more accurate figures are obtained by multiplying the number of reported adverse events by 100 (i.e., to account for the fewer than 1% reported), and serious events and deaths by 7.7 and again by 100, to account for the range of 1-13% reported. In addition to those COVID-vaccine related deaths reported to VAERS, there have been 94 more reported in the news, both in the USA and around the world. Of course, there is no way to verify whether those deaths reported in media and social media also include a report to VAERS. Table 1 shows their geographic distribution.
Following our last article, the death toll following administration of COVID vaccines reported by the media outside the U.S. has risen to 62. Thirty-three of these deaths were reported in Norway, after the Pfizer vaccine was administered primarily to the elderly population there, prompting the Norwegian Institute of Public Health judges to conclude that COVID-19 vaccines may be “…too risky for the very old and terminally ill.” This triggered a Beijing-based immunologist to warn that “…the world should suspend the use of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine represented by Pfizer, as this new technology has not proven safety in large-scale use or in preventing any infectious diseases. Older people, especially those over 80, should not be recommended to receive any COVID-19 vaccine.”
An additional 10 deaths were reported in Germany, ranging from several hours to 4 days after receiving their first investigational Pfizer vaccine. The ages of the deceased ranged from 79 to 93. Brigitte Keller-Stanislawski, head of Germany’s Paul Ehrlich Institute reported that, “Based on our current data we assume they died from their main diseases, coinciding in time with the vaccination.” This appears to be more “death by coincidence” — a new term coined by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., defined as “Declarations by health officials and vaccine makers that deaths and injuries following COVID vaccinations are unrelated.” Kennedy concluded that these “…coincidences are becoming a pattern,” adding, “Coincidence is turning out to be quite lethal to COVID vaccine recipients.” It is interesting to note at the same health officials who continue attributing countless deaths to COVID-19 illness, deem deaths following COVID vaccination to be “unrelated.” So, how is it that the same standards are not applied?
The following are a sampling of typical scenarios reported to the CDC’s VAERS system concerning COVID-vaccine related deaths in the U.S.:
- “84-year-old female from Florida received her first Moderna vaccine January 3, 2021 and died the next day.”
- “77-year-old male from Oklahoma received his first Moderna vaccine on December 31, 2020 and was found deceased in his home January 5, 2021.”
- ”74-year-old male from CA living in a residential facility was given Pfizer vaccine: Patient was vaccinated at 11am on January 7, 2021 and was found at the facility in his room deceased at approximately 3:00pm. Nurse did not have cause of death.”
- “39-year-old female from Ohio took her Pfizer vaccine 12/29/2020. Vaccine lead (at LTCF Pfizer Vaccine Clinic) received a call indicating that a staff member deceased somewhere between 1/3/2021 and 1/4/2021. Cause of death is unknown, and an autopsy is being performed.”
Table 2 summarizes the current number of COVID-vaccine related deaths by state as reported to VAERS through January 15, 2021. Please note that VAERS reported only 9 deaths for the entire state of New York since December, whereas in one facility alone, the media widely
reported a total of 24 residents of an Auburn New York long-term residential nursing home died within a week of their first Pfizer vaccine. Up-to-date information on the number of vaccines administered in each of the states is published by the CDC on their COVID Data Tracker site here.
The highest number of deaths have occurred with those who received the Pfizer vaccine (see Table 3). However, Pfizer’s COVID vaccine was granted FDA emergency authorization (EUA) for investigational use on December 11, 2020, exactly one week prior to Moderna’s COVID vaccine. Thus, since Pfizer had a one-week head start, more of their vaccines have been administered than Moderna’s. To date, the CDC reports that in the USA alone, 12,153,531 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines have been given — with the one-week lead time over Moderna’s — and 9,689,497 Moderna vaccines have been administered.
Nearly all deaths occurred in individuals after receiving their first COVID vaccine.
Both Pfizer and Moderna’s vaccines require two doses, with a second shot scheduled 21 days after the initial dose for Pfizer’s, and 28 days after for Moderna’s. However, most current data are based only on those who received the first dose. In the clinical trials, despite the fewer numbers of second doses given, more subjects experienced adverse events after the second dose. This same pattern is also being seen with the vaccination rollout. Thus, the rate of serious injury is expected to be much higher following the second dose.
Although information on the gender of those who died following COVID vaccination is not available for all, Table 4 provides the number of deceased males and females, for those where this information was documented and accessible.
In this same period up through January 15th, 2021, in addition to the reported deaths, a total of 7,844 adverse events were reported to VAERS, including 764 serious adverse events. The FDA defines an adverse event as, “…any undesirable experience associated with the use of a medical product in a patient.” An event is considered serious when the patient outcome is life-threatening, results in hospitalization, death, disability or permanent damage, congenital anomaly/birth defect, required intervention to prevent permanent impairment or damage.
Examples of Adverse Events
Some examples of serious adverse events reported to VAERS for COVID-19 vaccines include anaphylaxis, autoimmune disease, convulsions/seizures, heart attack, stroke-like symptoms, encephalomyelitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, thrombocytopenia, transverse myelitis and more. In fact, according to their Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee Meeting Presentation on October 22, 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revealed that it anticipates the occurrence of these very same adverse event outcomes — including death — as well as a list of others. And these are just the tip of the iceberg, considering that second doses of the vaccines are just beginning to be given now, and as we said earlier, we can expect to see much higher rates of injuries and deaths following them.
As always, the bottom line for making an informed decision about having any medical procedure or product, is weighing out the risks versus the benefits. A good question we might ask ourselves is, what are the real risks of dying from COVID-19 illness should we become infected?
According to the CDC, the estimated survival rates for COVID-19 illness are quite high (see Table 5). Considering the reality of what we are seeing with the current massive COVID vaccination programs, there is a real risk that these investigational vaccines can cause serious, life-threatening adverse events, permanent disability, and death. Again, what are their potential benefits?
As we mentioned in our last article, Dr. Fauci and the WHO have admitted that health officials do not know if COVID-19 vaccines can actually prevent infection or the spread of the virus to others. Dr. Fauci has also acknowledged that the only potential benefit of these experimental vaccines, could be reducing the severity of symptomatic COVID-19 infection… yet, he confessed that it remains unknown how long this limited immunity might even last. Clearly, the potential benefit from these vaccines does not appear to be all that noteworthy. Is the risk of injury, permanent disability, or death from taking an experimental vaccine — that will not even prevent transmission of the virus or COVID-19 illness — worth it when the chances of surviving the illness are so high?
This article is part of an ongoing series. It contains a growing list of deaths that occurred after experimental COVID vaccines were administered. The death reports are culled from the media and from social media, as well as from the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Injuries and deaths reported on social media are unconfirmed. Although the deaths are temporally related to the COVID vaccination, Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter cannot claim the COVID vaccine definitively caused the deaths. 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 in this article serve as anecdotes that may soon establish a pattern. Following last week’s initial coverage, Children’s Health Defense – California Chapter is providing updates on newly reported deaths that occur after COVID vaccination.
